Thread: How to best contain rage?

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

I'm avoiding speedrunning more and more because whenever I do, I get so abhorrently angry.

Thread: N64 PC DC any% and 100%

Started by: UI_JessUI_Jess

I am absolutely for restricting the use of emulators whenever possible. The only case where emulator should be allowed is if the original hardware is expensive/difficult to get or the emulation is so accurate that it doesn't matter. And it seems like none of those apply here. There was recently a change in the Toy Story 2 community, where for years emulator was the standard way to do 30 Token Any%. You can take one look at the board and see how out of hand it got.

Thread: Food for thought: When consoles break down

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

What if, let's say, we fast forward 100 years, and consoles become rarer and rarer. What will happen to speedrunning? Will emulators become the norm? This shit keeps me up at night.

Thread: Favourite Song and Why?

Started by: paintophobiapaintophobia


I recently discovered this song while browsing /r/PostHardcore. I've never been the most poetic person, so I couldn't accurately describe the emptiness I feel inside. The chorus sums this up perfectly. Feeling like fire is in your blood (panic) and water is in your lungs (anxiety). These 2 things prevent me from doing much of anything out of fear I will cause myself more pain. "I'm lost right now, as the ocean deep". I don't know how to escape this reality or if I even can without ending it all. I feel trapped in my own head and often wonder if it's even worth it.

I heard this song on the Buddhsim Hotline and I genuinely can't get enough of it. I've been listening to it for 2-3 years now. It's probably the funniest song I've heard.

I don't think there is a demand for Dreamcast runs at the moment. If they did exist at some point, it was so that an arbitrary world record could be attained.

Thread: How do you get PC version to work on Windows 10?

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

I generally don't like to use emulators if an easily accessible PC version is available (by that I mean easy to pirate).

Has a fix been made or is it doomed to incompatibility hell?

EDIT: I have already tried compatibility mode for Windows XP, 98, and 95. None of which worked.

Great find! From the looks of it, none of the records use this glitch. So you must be the first one to find it. Going by the WR IL, you save at least a minute with this trick!

Also before you waste your time typing a reply listing a few similarities between the two and acting like they are exactly the same, allow me to explain why they are fundamentally different.
There are different connotations that come with a sub category. Using a sub category generally implies that there is some quantifiable difference in some area. Your idea of a 1.0 cart with basement clip is a myth. Every single cart that has been tested has shown that basement clip is either impossible or very very difficult. It doesn't work the same as emulator. Unless you show that this fabled 1.0 cart exists, it is fairy tale.
Also the lag is so drastic to the point where to convert from emulator to console is almost like an entirely new game. You must adjust almost every aspect of gameplay to be even remotely fluent as you once were.
Filters are nice but they don't come with the same implication that there is something very different about both Emulator and Console. Having them on the same board implies that there is a choice between the two and that nothing is different. This is the reason for the change. Emulator should never be the dominant force anyway. It got so bad because you and Passive didn't see anything wrong with it. It was because at that time, you guys were naive to the differences.And that's fine. Now we know that they can't be compared. Adjust your world view to the facts.

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

As I was leaving a bunch of Discord servers that I don't find a reason to be in since I don't post a lot, I accidentally left the Croc discord server. It was not deliberate.

Also I tried messaging Thermo and Paul but Cylde bot stopped me for some reason.

Thread: Possibly controversial Discord rule

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

@Backspaced I'm actually waiting for this thread to be locked at a point where I can't defend myself any longer. Possibly with a snarky comment from the mods with a false sense of righteousness. This has happened once before with a thread I made. This is the last thread I will make asking for informed opinions because honestly I'm not going to find them on this site. I should have known from past experiences that nobody actually cares to listen to everything I say and constantly misquotes me thus derailing the thread with something that never even happened.

Thread: Possibly controversial Discord rule

Started by: MasterLeoBlueMasterLeoBlue

@v_input_ouput So instead of admitting that you lied about me to form your mess of a narrative, you basically said "no u" and left it at that. Why did anyone take you seriously again? It's really really sad actually.
@Liv I thought I made my point clear. There is no reason for you to ask if the answer is right there in front of you. You are just far too lazy to look for it or to fully pay attention.
@Dickson This is again an example of someone putting words in my mouth. I challenge you to find where I said I didn't care to post anymore. What I did say was I didn't care about the main topic of this thread which was about my controversial rule. As a matter of fact I gave up a long time ago about getting an informed opinion once I saw the atrocious responses. Now I'm just having fun pointing out where everyone is misquoting me. It's a good representation of how many people actually listen on these forums.
@Yajijy That's some good mental gymnastics if I've ever seen them. This forum is just a microcosm of the amount of people that exist. This small piece of shit community is literally nothing. So using them as a representation of anything is useless.

@v_input_output
Nowhere have I stated such nonsense.
"claiming that nobody else's opinion is rationally based if it disagrees with yours"
And you're saying that I'm out of touch with reality?
You are literally putting words in my mouth and people are congratulating you for it.
Then you go on to lie again by saying that I'm setting up "some power dynamic as people are only "useful" to you when they agree with you"
Again this is completely false and a demonstration of your lack of ability to listen.
I accept opinions when they are grounded in some kind of reality.
I respect and get a long with a lot of people who I don't agree with.
Also, I made a whole post about the difference between veracity and usefulness. They are 2 different things. What is the point of posting anything if you aren't going to listen?

It's almost as if you don't even care.
And you wonder why I didn't take your advice seriously.

@Gelly
Don't you find it odd that whenever an accusation is made it is never elaborated on?
I'm convinced the 3 people who upvoted your comment also have no idea what you are talking about.
The only reason they did so was because what you said was against me.
@MelonSlice
Matter of semantics, darling. Both are equally simple minded.

@MelonSlice I love how you upvote every post that agrees with you. It's almost as if you are just as close minded as you believe I am. Perhaps a bit of projection?
