Thread: Routing

Started by: trickynickydtrickynickyd

Sorry was a bit late to seeing this post. I have done some runs, just haven't submitted anything yet. Yeah the game forces you to be very linear due to text not appearing if you skip things. You can actually get to the blimp right away, but as of now haven't found a way to progress the story. Haven't tried all options to see what lets you do things early, but so far the list of things I've tried that haven't worked:

Doing Crypt before Cave (you can finish it, but you need to go back through the Crypt again after completing cave to talk to the King's son).
Going to volcano early (text to give you the key to enter isn't available)
Talking to king early (text to open blimp doesn't appear, not that it matters since you can get blimp early without gate opening)

Still need to test if you can complete anything in the desert early and perhaps use the better items to complete island 1 faster and have all the progress you made in the desert still count, and obviously see if that would be worth it time wise.

Thread: DLC Categories Now Live!

Started by: Oh_SnapOh_Snap

Hello, new DLC categories are now available on the boards. So going to detail the categories added and why some categories are not added at this time.

Limitcut (Data Org):

Pretty self explainatory why this was added. As for the rules the difficulties and LV1 vs LV99 (not LV1) are the sub categories. Magic Boosts were banned in both categories to not make the fights over trivial especially at LV99. Timing with use the load remover for competitive times and those who are using it themselves, what we mean by this is, if you wish to submit a 4 hour blind attempt at this category thats great, but the moderator team will not be running the load remover for you. Now in the cases of people who cannot run the load remover themselves but still wish to compete for top times we can load remove these for you. All load removed times will be put in as IGT.

Re:Mind:

We followed the same concept as Limitcut and treated Re:Mind as a boss rush with cutscenes, so the same rules apply to this just timing starts at a different point.

One thing to note that is a bit sloppy that looking to see if there is a workaround for is with the filter of marking a time as load removed or not there is two of them one is the Limitcut filter and the other is the Re:Mind one.

What was left out:

EZ/Pro Codes modifiers on every category. This felt similar to NG+ subcategory on every category, which did not result in the most engaging category, so we did not include them as their own category (Any% rules were updated and other categories will be to note the use of codes being banned). Like always if there is enough genuine interest we can look at adding it, but for now we wanted to focus on the main categories.

Either way please read the rules and feel free to submit runs now. Load remover thread is linked in every ruleset that is using it and is stickied as a thread as well.

Thread: New Category Idea - Invitational Levels

KilleDragon, it was sarcasm partially. Threads aren't ignored, it has been said probably at least 20 times now through discord and threads that we are not doing user made packs which is the majority of the requests you see are. This thread was discussed the day it was posted in mod chat.

Second requests sometimes seen: Partial story mode run that doesn't complete the full game. This is also obviously a no because it is extremely rare (mainly old games) to just complete part of a game as a category. If a run is too long for you to complete it is too long.

It is not the desire to not add more categories, it is the desire to not add arbitrary categories. This is common practice among the entire speedrunning community not exclusive to SMM2.

Regardless once again in case people are getting bogged down in the messages this category was added so yeah, not much more use in posts saying why we should add this category.

I agree I am sick of the mods on the boards ignoring threads because they do not want to add categories. How dare they add this category. In case the sarcasm wasn't painfully obvious this run is listed under Misc.

Also note: the addition of this category does not mean user level packs will be added nor does it mean all events with a level pack will be added. If you want to speedrun user levels the game has a built in timer and tracks the WRs already for you.

Thread: State Swapping?

It is a glitch where you can use a save (made during the run itself) to advance the current quest to the next one, allowing you to skip fights and quests. It doesn't work for every single fight and quest, but you can skip a vast majority of the game with doing this trick over and over again.

Thread: DLC Category Poll: DLC vs non-DLC timing

Started by: Oh_SnapOh_Snap

Discussion about the new rules for some of the DLC categories have been happening by the moderation team. For some of the rules we would like to ask the community which they would prefer.

The DLC added the ability to skip the opening cutscenes that are currently still unskippable if you do not own the DLC. To address this free time save please vote below for the 2 options by liking the post with the option. (If you like multiple options it will be assumed you are fine with either equally). (this might be a two part poll depending on the winner)

Filter DLC vs non-DLC runs

Edit times to make them comparable based on the amount of time skipping beginning cutscenes saves

That is not even the same issue we were talking about with these submissions. Level 1 was the video he submitted for 4 runs that were not level 1. That is the same as you submitting a minecraft run for a category on this board.

You keep submitting the wrong video with your run. If you submit a time your video actually has to match up with it. You used the same video which was incorrect for various different runs. This comment was given with every rejected run as well.

2) People coming forward need the backing of at least 2 other runners in the game (Can have ran any category and rank anywhere)

- Actively log into Speedrun.com at the bare minimum of once a week unless a reason is given for your in-activeness.
