Competition is kinda the point of a leaderboard, if it's just for practice you don't really need one

Well if anything, allowing segmented runs would make it harder to gain an unfair advantage by splicing, right? But yeah segmented categories have pretty much disappeared in favor of single segment or TAS these days.

Thread: Is it possible to beat Super mario sunshine with only 0 star or 1 star?

Started by: meekprince_meekprince_

It's possible to clip into the entrance to Corona, but the loading zone isn't there until the flood so it doesn't give you anything.

The other categories would exist either way, but the fact that the any% WR is still over an hour long is a pretty good indication that we don't have an instant shortcut to the end

Not a big issue but leaderboards are wider than usual with this (on Firefox)

Thanks for the fix tho!

I am also answering your questions tho, just making sure you're aware that this isn't the fastest or easiest setup but you do you

(edited: )

I'm pretty sure homebrew like Swiss can do that, it's just not as easy to set up as it is on Wii. Also there's a load time difference between GC and Wii, and it's bigger than the difference between any versions

You'll want JP 1.0 for long categories because of the load time difference but PAL is only a few seconds off JP for any%

You can keep a Mario 120 star file in one of the 6 slots, so you can load it and play as Luigi. You can even copy it to a different slot before starting a run so you can save and still have a clean Luigi file for next time

@WhicheverMirrorWhicheverMirror: The loader isn't the problem there, loading from USB/SD is much faster than loading from a disc, but loading an official disc through loaders like Gecko OS or Swiss is fine

From what I could find online, WiiFlow can't run GC games directly, so it depends which GC loader you give it in the settings

Thread: emu question + small detail

Started by: Scrub_RTAScrub_RTA

We ban top emu times because as 1Ups explained, emulation varies from one PC to another so emu runs can't meaningfully be compared, even with one another. For the same reason, a separate emu leaderboard wouldn't make sense either.
We allow low emu times because they tend to be more spread out so the emulation differences don't matter as much, and it allows new players to start running without having to get official hardware right away. Call it half-assed if you want, but it's meant to help people in your situation.

If it makes you feel any better, Nintendo stopped selling GC games and Wiis long ago, so they wouldn't get any money from you unless you choose to buy a Smash Ultimate controller from them

True any% would look like this:

It's not realistically happening RTA, but on the off chance that someone pulls it off, these rules would prevent the category from being dead forever

Thread: Differentiate between controller usage?

Started by: [Deleted user]

I don't think it warrants a variable on the board, especially as it seems people will be switching between both kinds of controller mid-run. Switch controllers are bad for travel skip and underwater levels because FLUDD takes half a second to start spraying or hovering, but good for manta and Sirena 6 because of easy spam-sprays.

Thread: Shadow mario quick kill

Started by: superboi0119superboi0119

Usually it's getting close to him and spam-spraying him with a rollout, the one in Noki uses a ground pound instead because it's more convenient. To unlock Yoshi on the plaza, the best way is to spray him down as he runs left, but a spam-spray kill also exists if you waterslide at him from Ricco instead.
