Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hello, I would like to request moderation for Bronkie The Bronchiasaurus

https://www.speedrun.com/bronkie_the_bronchiasaurus

I submit a run 6 months ago and tried to reach the moderator in different social media to no response

User is @RantronBombRantronBomb and it seems last time login was 8 months ago

Due to this I would like to be added as a supermod of the game and potentially have Rantron removed

Thread: SMB1 Warpless Tournament

Started by: KosmicKosmic

Hey everyone!

I'm one of the creators of TeamGG, and I saw some of your concerns and came here to address them.

We just finished a speedrun marathon a week ago, and most of the runners were doing their run on their twitch channels, as far as I know, that clause is to restream the exact same content, since we are just taking the video feed and putting it in a completely different layour, with commentary as well as most likely, different audio (per second interval due to commentary and potentially the audio alternating between the runners) no one seem to have an issue.

However, for your own protection, we can provide with alternate stream keys just for your run during the race and that way you can avoid falling in any gray areas or any issues with your own account.

We are rebranding GG after this first marathon thou, and while we will keep the Mixer streams, we are also going to be using Twitch for this tournament at the same time as Mixer and see how that works for us as well.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out, we already have our first match scheduled for this Wednesday, we hope you guys have a blast.

This is a very important event for us since this is one of the most established communities, and having your support for one of our very first events its major for us, so we really want to bring as best quality as possible and are open for any feedback you guys might have.

Thanks!

Thread: Dark Cave 100% consistent strat

Started by: MrDino023MrDino023

Hey everyone, thinking about running this game, probably a longer category than the 8 bit one. I'm still on my first playthrough but I'm kind of practicing while I play.

With that being said, I got this strat to clear the dark cave 100% consistent without any weird or over complicated setups, hope you like it.

I've seen many people asking me if they have to stream on Mixer to participate in this event.

The answer is no.

All streaming platforms are welcome, wether you stream in Mixer, Twitch, YT, Facebook, etc... it doesn't matter. It is just the restream that will be happening on Mixer.

So make sure to invite your friends to participate, I guarantee you guys it will be an awesome marathon.

GG is a community of streamers trying to organize events on mixer and trying to improve the presence of speedrunners in the platform. You don't need to be a Mixer streamer so submit a run.

The intention for the maraton is to run 24 hours from September 28 (starting around 4 CST) all the way until around 10pm CST on Sunday Sept 30th.

The marathon is also intended to help the organization CDKL5 Research and help spread awareness of CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder. Any donations (if any) will go directly to the organization, no money will ever pass through our hands at all.

I hope a Marathon page can be created for this and if any other information is needed, please let me know.

Thanks!

Thread: Technodrome Metronome

Started by: Skunky48Skunky48

While Im not yet an official speedrunner of this game, I'm in many other games and been around learning and watching a lot from othe communities as well as Im one of the mods for Cuphead right now.

So, with that being said, here are my 2 cents about the meteonome.

I believe it shouls be allowed, even if it wasn't, there would be no real way to really know wether someone is using it or not.

There are other runs thst already allow similar use of tools to minimize bad RNG (In my opinion, how technodrome works is bad RNG (my definition of bad RNG is that one which ita not fun)) its no like trying to dodge a random attack from a boss or something similar which really add to the gameplay, this one almost feel straight out to troll you (even just playing the game casually).

As an example, Banjo Kazooie uses a Question Calculator for a section called "Furnace Fun" it is a part of the game that is a big trivia/board game, but some questions in the trivia are completely RNG based on hints thst you get in game with a total of 256 possible patterns at the start of your run... This calculator helps you keep track of the hints (you still have to get them each run) and narrow down the possible patterns to as close as 1 so that its not always an RNG hellfest everytime after 2 hours into the run.

This also rewards skills, it would be horrible to keep losing runs, maybe at incredible paces to something that runners have almost 0 control at.

Metronome is just an audio queue, which some people already use the title screen music as such as well as some people already use the credits screen to title screen as a visual queue, the start still needs to happen at an specific frame even if you have a metronome.

Also, it would rewards mostly original hardware players which is just more pluses to it imo. Since emulator users and mini console users would need to find out the exact time for the metronome that works for them indovidually, since most likely due to input delay, it would be different from the time Skunky mentioned.

And lastly, if there are some runners interested, but that is the only thing stopping them from actually running the game theb even better to allow it and make the community bigger.

So that are my 2 cents in this regards.

Cheers

Sounds good, I'll be uploading RTA and IGT times with the requierements that were asked for bizhawk, let me know if it would be better to upload them in the same thread as bizhawk

Started by: MrDino023MrDino023

Hey, I know a lot of testing was done before accepting bizhawk and just wanted to ask, if I start playing in Snes classic and submit the time comparisons between RTA and IGT as it was made for bizhawk, if there could be a chance for SNES mini to be accepted as a valid emulator?

Just asking this because I really like the SNES controller to play, I would completely understand if it is ruled out for RTA as any other emulator besides bizhawk as of now.

Thanks!

There s absolutely nothing wrong with that run, luigi is an amazing runner.

1) Look at video again, he is not shooting during the dash animation, he shoot the very next frame that the animation is over (pretty easy if you leave the shoot button pressed) also, Im sure he didnt even mean to do it like that since that actually lost a little bit of time

2) The clock will always do more or less complete animation cycles depending on PC performance (it has absolutely nothing to do with Internet speed) thats why runs can be submitted without loading times (so that everyone is on fair ground at least in PC) you can setup your timer to automatically pause during loading if you use the autosplits for cuphead (there is a tutorial somewhere in this page)

Thread: How to put "Life Bars" to practice

Started by: KuronoKurono

Hello Aizawa!! 🙂 Fellow country runner.

I'm not a mod but that was asked in the past and any type of third party softwared/modification is not allowed that could potentially help during the run.

You can practice with it but runs can't be submitted like that, I'm not 100% sure what the main reason was but I believe one valid one is because xbox runners can't make use of such tools and it would also make it easie to calculate stuff such as Hilda Freeze or Beppi 2nd phase kill during 1st phase, etc.

I asked if it was possible to start the timer whenever you chose any turtleand not just leonardo, since it might be better to start with other turtle with harder execution in case you need to reset
