Hello, I recommend starting with Any% NG+:
+ You can choose the order of chapters you run (I do it in order of hardest to easiest - 4,3,2,5,1)
+ You are able to skip cutscenes
+ No cons I can think of

Of course you can always go with Any% NG, which is the same except you can't skip cut scenes and have to do the chapters in order, meaning it's a more riskier run because chapters 3 and 4 are the biggest run killers.

Always happy to see more runners interested in running this game, so good luck and have fun!

Apologies for not being active as of late, stuff going on in my personal life so had to step away from speedrunning for the last few months.

I plan on returning actively soon, but I will make you a moderator anyway in case I end up going inactive again.

1. Any% (Codes) and Any% sounds like a good idea actually. I just wouldn't want Any% becoming the main category people look at (Which will probably be unlikely anyway).

2. I agree with Indy

3. Again I agree with Indy, since VLR and ZTD don't have a mode like in 999 (Memories of the escape) it would mean having to keep going back to the flowchart which isn't ideal for All Escapes.

4. I don't really mind whether or not IE's get scrapped.

5. From what I can tell the only main difference between 3DS and PC is load times, so making them separate categories would be kinda pointless. I say run the game on whatever version works best of you. Or like indy said, if anyone really cares about ZTD speedruns then go for the PC version.

That is all.

I don't want to be annoying or anything, but would it be possible to add the option to show who the 2nd player was. I don't really want to put the 2nd player's name in the description 😛 Thanks again

Would it be possible to add Any% Co-Op as a category? Me and my brother did a Co-Op run and wanted to put it on the leaderboards. (We used the same rules as Any%)

Cool, I agree that adding it as a separate game would be the better option. I've already routed the game and written notes, I just need to actually do a run.

I was planning on running the GBA version of Sims Bustin' Out but the GBA version is completely different to the GCN/Xbox/PS2 versions in terms of gameplay and story. Because of the differences I don't know if the GBA version should be set as a separate game on its own or as a separate category here? (Which would be Any%)

I don't know if this has happened to anyone else, but during follow the spiders after burning the last web the cutscene before fighting aragog didn't play at all, resulting in a softlock and this killed my potienal sub 3 run which really pissed me off. I was on the Xbox Version.

When you save and load it loads you on the same map you saved the game on so that doesn't work (I tried this in Borgin's). Also I managed to hit the glass jar whilst OoB but after the next cutscene plays the map loads properly so that won't work either.

Even though this isn't applicable anywhere in runs, This still may lead to something, I'll keep looking 😊

I can only get this glitch to work in The Burrow and that softlocks the game (I tried this with every cutscene during The Burrow). Also quitting a cutscene and pressing load game doesn't seem to work either, Unfortunately it looks like this glitch is useless in Speedrunning but it's still pretty interesting.

Here's a weird glitch I encounted that may hopefully be useful somewhere...

After looking into this glitch I've worked out how to do it. All you do is quit the game on the last few frames before a cutscene starts (In this case it was the washing machine cutscene). To know if it will work you will see the cutscene playing as the screen fades to black and upon starting a new game (or load game, not sure yet?) For some reason the floor doesn't load and you spawn where harry is standing in the cutscene you quit on. This is was on the Xbox version, I'll look into the GCN and PS2 versions aswell (Unless anyone else want's to)

Here's a video of the glitch:

Unfortuneatly doing this in The Burrow softlocks the game because you miss the first goal 'Smash some objects' meaning you can't end the day.

I'll try to find a way to get around this and I'm going to try this with other cutscenes but I hope this turns out to be useful because this glitch is great.

I'm just curious as to why Escape with the Iris (Level 12) isn't listed under the level leaderboards.
