No I mean you can take 7 damage, then fall out of bounds and you’ll die from fall damage, not from being oob

“-Fruit stand clip is not allowed, you must die of fall damage”
Sounds like you mean “Death by standing out of bounds is not allowed”, banning that one clip would be pretty arbitrary, and you can take fall damage by landing oob which would fit the goal of dying from fall damage

Yeah, they forgot to remove the loading zone for the boathouse lol. I managed to get it by hovering through the planks and under the boathouse once, but it’s really hard

Thread: [Notification/Alert]: Leaderboard timing method vote

Started by: 1UpsForLife1UpsForLife

The results are in! https:/​/​q.​zint.​ch/​results

Peach File and Hacked File will be added as new timing methods alongside the existing File Select (renamed as New File). All timing methods will be visible by default.

Thanks to Psychonauter for the technical implementation, to Arle Nadja and Strongman Lin for the Japanese translation, to the committee who helped make the poll, and to all who participated in the discussion around it on Discord!

Thread: Help

Started by: LaiosssLaiosss

Hi! The reason we ban SD/USB loading is because it’s significantly faster than loading from a disc. We do accept it for individual levels that have no loads in them but unfortunately that’s about it.

Note that it’s still perfectly fine to run any category you want, you just won’t be able to submit your runs to the leaderboard

Thread: What would running on Nintendon't count as?

Started by: GHGH

Yeah, even without Nintendont, ISOs are banned. If you have a decent PC, you can use your ISO on Dolphin though, since it tries to emulate disc load times

Thread: Why are Leaderboard Submissions allowed without video???

Started by: SilverCrossSilverCross

Video proof is required for good enough times in any category, not because faking a slower time is okay, but because a faker typically won’t be interested in the 187th spot on the board, not realizing what it takes to get there legitimately. So we chose to let people try out the game without having to get a recording setup.

It’s not like we just accept anything past the threshold either, if someone we’ve never seen before submits a 1:25:00 in any% without video, it’ll likely be rejected

We do have a few ways to get into that pipe without Yoshi, but it’s hard to tell if yours is new without at least an explanation of how it’s done

Thread: Blue Coin that crashes in Noki Bay

Started by: WorldStar9WorldStar9

It’s unclear what causes it but it never seems to happen if you collect the blue coin without a memory card inserted for some reason

Thread: Sirena Beach Episode 6 unknown glitch

Started by: LiserdLiserd

Yeah, it only happens on Dolphin, especially when you use save states. It’s not just in Sirena 6 either, the goop looks normal but doesn’t do anything (NPCs don’t sink in it and Mario can walk through it as if there were none), which causes the Sirena 6 timer to stop immediately

There’s a missing string on the General page of the settings: https://i.imgur.com/SMf8KCp.png

Otherwise, new theme looks great, except for my username color over the header’s green background

Thread: Do I need an NTSC-J Console to play NTSC-J Disc or can I just homebrew?

Started by: UrinalMikeUrinalMike

It depends on what homebrew you use, Gecko OS is the recommended app, Priiloader and AnyRegion Changer are fine too, but Nintendont is banned because it removes lag in the game.

Thread: I have found a new clip in Bianco Hills.

Started by: LichzimLichzim

That’s already known but it’s not really useful for anything, the death plane is so low that you can’t even get back onto the ground without the rocket nozzle

Thread: Min. Jump Category

Assuming you get enough time for secret reds, all 120 Shines are jumpless. I managed to get the highest red coin in Pinna 6 by ledgegrabbing the block under it at its peak (it’s tricky because you can’t stay on the ledge while it’s moving), wallkicking off of it and hovering into the coin. The new hardest coin is the last one in Sirena 4, the only way to get it jumpless afaict is with infinite wallkicks up the walls of the previous section and a waterslide on top.

Edit: Actually you can reach it with a wallkick off of the yellow peg, but I have yet to get that wallkick from a rollout. At least that looks like it could become consistent with a good setup

Makes sense. I usually take the Ricco late route so I save and reset after Pinna but I guess that would count as a jump
