Thread: Platform Requests / Tagging games to be part of a series / Adjusting game type or game title

Hey, I just wanted to see if I can get Banjo-Kazooie: Stay at Home listed as a romhack for Banjo-Kazooie? Link is here: speedrun.com/bksah/

Also is it not possible for the title of the game to have the word "at" capitalized? I thought I wrote it like that but apparently I didn't, and it's irking me lol

Thread: Multiple website/wiki links? And ability to change the name that shows up on the sidebar for said link

Started by: Madtaz64Madtaz64

Hey, so recently there has been talk of the banjo community creating a website/wiki of sorts just for banjo speedrunning focused content. Which if we do we' would have it on the sidebar for all of the games in the banjo-kazooie series. The only issue is currently the Banjo-Tooie leaderboards have that spot set to redirect to the category extensions google doc, so we would have to choose between one or the other. So I was wondering if there were any plans to add the ability to add multiple external links in the future, as well the ability to change the name that shows up on the sidebar for said links, so that I could specify which is the as of now theoretical wiki and which is the category extensions doc.

Thread: All Time Stones runs

Started by: MeowskivichMeowskivich

Hey man it's always great to see someone taking interest in running and developing lesser ran categories! I know a couple of people have done All Time Stones before, but there hasn't been much enthusiasm to take the category seriously, a lot of times it's just due to people not liking the special stages much in general. But hey, maybe you keeping at it will inspire more people to join you in running the category, and if there's enough interest, we might end up adding ATS to the boards someday!

I do know that the route for the normal stages is pretty similar to any%, aside from a few stages you would want to go out of your way to get extra rings of course. I would recommend joining the discord and asking for any tips for runs/routing in general. Even though there isn't a lot of people active, there's still a sizable amount of people running it every now and then. Also check out Chronoon's any% tutorial, because while ATS isn't exactly similar to Any% there's a lot of stuff done in any% that would also be done in ATS. Also might wanna ping Chronoon in the discord too, bc he has looked into ATS before and has a general idea of what stages would be better to get time stones in, even if it has probably been a good long while since he's looked into the category.

Thread: Level runs?

Started by: BatDorkBatDork

Hey man, sorry for the late response, been preoccupied. We already discussed the possibility of making an external CD 2011 IL board on a google doc over here: https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_CD_2011/thread/d7fw0 if you want to read my purposed idea there and discuss it. Though to be honest I never got around to making said board for various reasons, I might end up trying to make a mockup of the idea in the future if there's interest.

Thread: Level Leaderboard

Started by: bluerapids12bluerapids12

Incorrect Finalflame. The reason we haven't done ILs boards as far as I know (aside from TSC) is due to fear that there'd be lack of interest in it. But unless I've heard differently, that doesn't mean it won't ever change.

My issue with TSC's IL board is that it only keeps track of ILs for any% and even then it accepts every stage variant as one stage. Given the nature of the game I feel like there's a LOT more potential not being taken advantage of there. Personally, I've had a few ideas myself for a fully decked out IL board, One idea was having boards for both getting good future and boards for getting good future AND the Metal Sonic Hologram (maybe one for just getting the msh too). Another being having ILs for each time period any%, so for example you would have:

PP1 (Sonic 2011):
-Starting Point 1-A (Present)
-Starting Point 1-B (Past)
-Starting Point 1-C (Good Future)
-Starting Point 1-D (Bad Future)

Hell, we could do something similar with the Good Future & Savior of the Planet variants too, though MAYBE a bit condensed because having to travel from the future to the past might be a bit much. It could look like this:

PP1 (Sonic 2011):
-Starting point 1-A (Past)
-Starting point any time period

Or it could look like the previous example, either way is fine. Anyways though this might honestly be something that would work better in a google doc regardless, maybe I'll try to whip up a concept type thing within the next week or so because it'd be pretty fucking cool to see even if it's just in a google doc.

Thread: Request for Any% Warpless Category

Started by: FengáriFengári

Oh, awesome, great to see/hear about more runners! I actually did do a few All Levels runs a few months back, only a couple weeks worth though because other speedgames/life priorities and such. It's a fun run, but really hard (at least, for me it was). I did however find a couple cool strats for it that hopefully you'll be able to see well in my pb vod I'm about to submit. A couple of big ones I wanna mention is the strat I did to get a star using those big circle things in 3-1, as well as the version of 6-2 skip I did. I also have a clip of me doing it with Peach: https://clips.twitch.tv/MoralSavageFriesRitzMitz w/ peach I was only able to do it by using the doors to reset the enemy positions, though even if I found a way to do it w/o the doors I think Luigi is likely still faster.

Also, there was a weird speedboost I got from an enemy, maybe might be useful as speedtech? https://clips.twitch.tv/RelatedThoughtfulSalmonMau5

Started by: FighBatFighBat

There is! but it's part of the general Sonic series speedrunning discord https://discord.gg/VqkNCEe just a note though, you'll only be able to talk in one chat for the time being, but people can and will definitely help you in that chatroom! Also if nothing else if you're trying to learn Sonic any% Chronoon made a guide for each level, check the guide section for that. Maybe one day us other runners will stop being lazy and make proper guides for the other categories on the board

Thread: Some platforms for this game are missing.

Started by: KnuxMaster368KnuxMaster368

Sorry about that Knuxmaster368, we ended up forgetting to add a lot of versions to the list due to the fact that most people would prefer to run pc/console over the ios version.

Also, we talked about the ios version patching the milliseconds bug and edited the rules to account for that when submitting runs, so in the future you don't have to rule out milliseconds when adding up level times.

We do not accept runs without video proof, so if you want your run to be accepted then record you doing the run in its entirety and submit it.

No.

And the video you submitted for your "PB" was a ted talks video about where math symbols come from. If you actually did do the run in question please submit video proof of the run itself.

Thread: Splits?

Started by: ELPsteelELPsteel

I make my own splits personally, most of them are hit upon fade-out after leaving each section of a level. For 100% I also made a split for each time I re-enter Tassel Dessert just because it was funny to make splits showing how fucking much we go into that level for grinding.

Thread: Warpless?

Started by: Madtaz64Madtaz64

So I was just curious why Warpless (Or I guess as the og smb2 boards call it now, "All Stages") isn't on the leaderboards? Is it only because no one's really done a run? And why hasn't anyone done it yet if that's the case? It seems kind of odd to me that no one's considered it yet.

Thread: 100% L.O.G Choice

Started by: TheCobaltDragonTheCobaltDragon

On that note I mean if you want to start with 100% go nuts but I would highly recommend NOT doing that unless you're really confident about your ability to route and build vehicles and such. Any% was a nightmare enough for us as it was and there's STILL probably things we could improve on. I do have a tutorial in the guide section for any% although it's extremely outdated at this point. But it should still help a beginner well. Also I do plan on making a new tutorial hopefully sooner rather then later, but I've been way too focused on other speedgames and busy with a bunch of in real irl stuff at the same time so who knows when I'll get to that.

If you need any help or pointers though we do have a discord, it's part of the general banjo-kazooie community but it's there if you want it, although almost no one talks in it, I still will see it and would be willing to help you with whatever you need.

Thread: 100% L.O.G Choice

Started by: TheCobaltDragonTheCobaltDragon

I actually never thought about it, but I don't think you'd have to do the DLC in 100%, considering it's extra paid content. Also the one run that's on there isn't really a good measure for how long it is, that was routed pretty terribly in less then a week by someone who never ran the game before that point. Scykoh and I were guessing it would take around 6 hours for a decent well routed run.

Started by: TheCobaltDragonTheCobaltDragon

if you actually wanna go route out 100% have fun with that it'd be interesting to watch though, what's your twitch handle?

Also about the splicing I think you misunderstood what the rules were saying, it said nothing about editing L.O.G.'s Choice vehicles when the mission starts, there's a lot of spots where I do that in any% lol

I don't see why that version would be banned, I feel like it wasn't listed more because the mods didn't know it even was on Ouya (because I sure as hell didn't).

That's a really comprehensive resource on the routes, game mechanics and boss strategies. Might be slightly outdated but still really well done.

That and watch the vods for some of the fastest times, maybe some of the ones lower on the line for more beginner friendly routes?

Good luck!

Do you guys need help or something moving times over? I don't get why it's taking so long. I don't even know where I'm supposed to be submitting times. And do you need me to message Pac to remove the old boards or something? I'm sure he could also merge them or something for us
