And how, pray tell, does my rhetoric lack logic?

Thread: ''Cartridge Tilting'' in speedrun ?

Started by: FireNelsFireNels

If it's an N64 exclusive game then I don't see a problem. However, if the game is a port (eg. Toy Story 2) then it should be banned. But according to the SR community I'm stupid so don't take my advice.

Thread: When did you find out what speedruns were?

Started by: [Deleted user]

I stumbled across Speedruns on Youtube back when SDA was a thing. I think it was a speedrun of a sonic game. Probably sonic 3. And I was absolutely stunned at how fast he was doing everything. I wasn't really interested to the point where I would go out of my way to watch them. I just watched them when I was curious to see how fast one of my favorite games could be beat. I think I was 12 or 13 then. A while ago.

Is there any such a thing and if there's not would it be possible to have one?

@doctorwoot How does taking drugs alter the game in any way?

@Lance_ So because I haven't been running long enough, that means I can't have a logical say in the matter? That's like saying that a kid can't give an adult logical advice on life. Which you know isn't true.

Thread: A couple things regarding this game

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

Hey there I loved this game as a kid and I just recently saw how short it really was. I'd like to run this because of how fast you can pump out runs and how hard it is. Should be fun to pick up. But I have a few questions before picking it up.

1.Is the only submitted time a segmented run? If so, shouldn't it be under a category called "Segmented"? I mean like have two categories : Any% and Segmented

2. I'm also confused by the only platform being SegaGenesis. Comix Zone was released for PC as well as GBA.

3. In the WR video, the player is seen using a charge attack on the cage to free the rat in the first level. How does one even do that? I've tried every button combo I can but nothing does that.

I doubt that TS2 is the only game that has this problem.

Also regarding forcing mods: I misunderstood.

I meant more of encourage mods to do it and show that it's beneficial.

@Ankoku Please do explain why that would happen.

"There's no point asking us, because what are any of us going to do? Force all moderators of all boards to separate every single release of every single platform?"

Finally you get it.

@Lance So basically PC and N64 are the only versions then?

@Ankoku You've made the same mistake as many other have made here. Assuming that I want everything to be 100% accurate. All I want is more accuracy. Why is everyone here so afraid of more accuracy? Honestly what bad will separating the different versions do?

There is a better one. Separate the platforms. That's what this entire thing was all about. Imagine how many more people will have the motivation to speed run who can't access the fastest version? You can compete with people on equal footing. This wasn't all about me. What is this about bending over backwards to my specific problem? I doubt that I'm the only one having this problem. But everyone is so content with their flawed system. I'm posing to you an improvement over the norm.

So basically what you are telling me to do is ¤¤¤¤ off and play a game where this isn't a problem? Are you actually pushing me away? I want to bring more people to speedrun and give people more motivation to run.

Why do you have such a problem with accuracy?

@SuccintAndPunchy As it has been said several times in this thread, not everyone has access to the fast version. I wish that I could run TS2 on PC but my PC just isn't that type. Should I spend hundreds of dollars just to get the fastest time? That's absolutely insane.

I'm not asking for a perfect solution. I'm asking for a better ranking system than the one already exists.

@Lance_ I Never said that I wanted the fastest version to be banned. It seems instead of me not supporting my argument well, you have misunderstood my argument in the first place. The goal of this is that I want different platforms to be compared to their own platform. You want to know what would push people to speed run more? If they could be accurately scored instead of constantly being overshadowed by versions with better loads. The only reason why I said that the fastest version should be the only allowed version is because of what Cyberdemon531 told me. He said that the point of speedrunning is to go fast and I say, which as you have shown to agree, that contradicts with the thought that all versions should be accepted. So the two solutions that I presented in my original post were two solutions to fix the failure in the logic.

1.You agree that the point of speedrunning is to go fast
2.The point of rankings is to show who is the fastest
3.Inferior versions will never be the fastest
4A. All inferior versions must be banned
OR
4B. Rankings shouldn't exist

1.You accept that not all versions are equal
2.Rankings only truly matter when the versions are equal
-For example in an eating competition, each player is given 10 hotdogs to eat in the fastest time
-Now imagine if one player has to wait 5 seconds before eating another hotdog and the other player has to wait 1 second.
-How is it fair if they are lumped together?

@PurpleSunDeryl Ah yes the incredibly cliche'd and utterly pointless mantra "Don't care what other people think". I'm sorry but in the real world words are power. If they didn't have power then there would be no point in you or anyone else posting this thread. You were drawn here by my opinion. This is how opinions can influence people. This is why suicides happen over cyber bullying. Then the bullies themselves come around and blame the victim for "being too soft". How loathsome. So tell me again why I shouldn't care about these misinformed people?

@Yoshipro101 The loads matter. You act like they aren't important. In a perfect world, IGT is the standard. Because it doesn't judge the player by the inferior platform. It judges them by their skill. The way it should be in the first place.

@PurpleSunDeryl

"and if you can't splash out, try to be competitive with people on the same version."

This is exactly my problem. On one's profile there is a list of records. If all platforms are clumped together, it won't matter if you're 1st on the specific platform. It will show you as lesser than you actually are.

@Lance_ I think you missed the point. The point was, if the PC version is the fastest version and speedrunning is to go fast then why have any other version allowed? And no, it's not literally the same game. I thought you knew that the PC version loads the entire level. Not just sectors. This makes the penthouse clip possible.
