I'm surprised The Messenger isn't on this list since the official Guinness Worlds Records youtube channel has the Any% No OoB record there.

Thread: OoB guide?

Started by: NjNJA_QKNjNJA_QK

Is there a guide somewhere on how to go out of bounds? I'll start trying to speedrun this game in a couple weeks, but I can't figure out how to clip out of bounds with any of the characters @_@. Would it be possible to add a No-OoB category (like on the Mark of the Ninja page https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​motn/​full_game)?

Fun fact... right after that record, I did 1 final all character any% attempt and ALMOST beat my record again... but in the last 2 minutes one of the enemies didn't spawn (and you have to beat all enemies for the final boss to appear).

I tried to turn around to go back and beat him... but I fell off the boat and died T_T

I beat my old record. New record is 58 minutes and 6.4 seconds In Game Time and 1 hour 19 minutes 14 seconds Real Time.

I have an idea for a new category called Any% All Characters. The goal is to beat the game with all 3 characters in one single segment run from a new save. The rules will basically match the rules for the other Tenchu 2 any% categories:

- Must be a new game.
- You can use any items gained during the run.
- Time for Real Time starts when choosing the first characters stage, and ends when the final characters boss's HP reaches 0 (final hit on the final boss). Note: this run will be based off In-game time unless all other categories are changed to Real Time
- In-game time is tallied up after the run from the record screen.
- You MUST show all times from the record screen at the end of the run.
- Single Segment
- You can play the characters in any order, but you must complete all 3.
- The cheat code to unlock Tatsumaru may be used. No other cheat codes are allowed.

I've successfully run this category a few times. This video is my current PB (and I guess WR too).

I know this post was a year ago, but I'm going to answer it anyway just in case someone wants to know in the future.

Your in-game time is displayed after you beat each stage (the same screen that shows your rank). To get your final in-game time, you would go to your characters rank screen at the options menu after you beat the game and add all of the times. Personally, I put all of my times into this website because I'm lazy and it will add them up for me (http://www.grun1.com/utils/timeCalc.html).

Your timer needs to START when you choose your first stage and it needs to END on the final hit of the last boss fight. I don't think there is a set rule for where you need to split in between the stages. To be consistent, I always split at the rank screen at the end of each stage until I beat the final boss.

Finally regarding items... you can use any items you get during the speedrun, but keep in mind that if you're doing an any% run, you have to start from a NEW game/save. You won't start with Dragon's Breath because you won't have it in a new game file. Maybe you can find it during the speedrun or get it by Grand Mastering a stage (I'm not sure), but that would be the only way you could use the item.

Thread: Missing Speedrun videos

Started by: NjNJA_QKNjNJA_QK

Hello everyone. I'm thinking about speedrunning this game starting this week, but I was browsing through the leaderboards and noticed there are speedruns that don't have video proof on the website anymore. Specifically these are missing:

1st place Any% Ayame
1st place Mission 1 Any% Rikimaru
1st place Mission 2 Any% Rikimaru

I'm very new to the website so I'm not sure how this is handled. I'd message a mod directly, but apparently there is no messaging feature on this website. I'd love to see those videos so I can get an idea of the route and strategy involved... but at the same time if they no longer exist and can't be recovered, then there's no longer video proof and the times should be removed because they can no longer be verified.
