Thank you. I didn't know about that thread.

 
 

Super Cassette Vision (SCV)

 
 

What platform do I select for a game on the Super Cassette Vision? I don't know if there is one that is applicable that I just don't recognize or if it has just not been added to the list yet.

 
 

The traps are just the things that make stuff fall from the top of the screen (rocks or bottles). They are invisible unless you use the goggles. They have fixed locations on certain screens (at least one screen in every stage has traps), but they behave like enemies in terms of spawning. If a trap isn't there it's because it didn't spawn, either because the route you took caused there to already be too many enemies on screen or you entered/exited a room which despawns everything. I tried mapping all the trap locations once, but gave up after realizing they were very inconsistent in terms of which ones actually spawned. The traps are the circles on the wall in this screenshot. https://i.imgur.com/vnktEwm.png

 
 

Radio: All three characters can use this. You use it to switch to another
character on the fly, at any time, except during a conversation. You can't
switch to a captured partner, obviously.

Ruby Ring: You'll need this to bribe some characters into helping you.

Lupin-exclusive items:

Vest: You'll be protected for one hit for each one you pick up.

Shotgun: Use this and you'll get a few three-way gunshots. But, you get
knocked back a bit when you fire the weapon, so be careful.

Goggles: They help you find traps in some stages.

Bombs: They destroy all enemies on screen and open doors and passageways.
Hint - use them on the fireplaces in stage one...

Jetpacks: Use them to fly around the stage. Get hit and you'll fall down.

Oxygen tanks: You need these to swim around. Some stages -require you- to go down
and swim.

Balloons: If you fall down a hole, you'll be saved by this. You can shoot
your gun and maneuver a bit while floating, but the balloon will pop after a few
seconds of flight.

Tell me if you need any clarification or have any other questions.

How long should I wait after submitting a run/contacting moderators before I should request to be a moderator? This is the board by the way https://www.speedrun.com/Lupin_the_3rd_Lupin_is_dead_Zenigata_is_in_love . I submitted runs 10 days ago and tried contacting the mods that seem to still be around yesterday and today.

 
 

On the home page two of my runs appear at the top of the latest runs list, even though they're very old.
