Started by: OddPandemoniumOddPandemonium

It is literally impossible for you to have achieved an in game time of 1:13.987, as I said.

Thread: Runs got rejected

Started by: OddPandemoniumOddPandemonium

I am the person who removed your runs, and I also gave you the reason for it in the rejection message.

You had a total of two times submitted, both without video. One of the times included an impossible in game time (the game only shows two decimals, not three), and therefore I decided to remove your other run as well (50% of your submissions seemed to be made up, which means we have good reason to request proof for your future submissions).

I removed runs from other users as well, as I went through all IL-boards that day. Unfortunately, a lot of impossible times had slipped through the moderation wall. A run being verified once does not mean it can't be rejected later if there's reason behind it.

Thread: Any% Rule Change Request, or Category Split

Started by: zcanannzcanann

If you can save time with ESW without using pre-existing files it should be allowed for normal Any%. Then again, I am not a runner. But that is generally how Any% goes.

Yes, Japanese version should work just as fine as any other.

Probably not. Blindfolded runs would require cam, but even with that it is really difficult to track cheating. People could simply use blindfolds that does not actually hinder their view.

Thread: Help with Glass Joe TD

Started by: NCR_TrooperNCR_Trooper

There are no special strategies with TD Joe to manipulate the timer in any way. It all comes down to punching him as soon as possible. I would suggest looking at the timer and try to learn to see your pace based on that. One example could be to knock him down the first time just as the timer has moved to 2:46, to know that you are on a good run.

There is also the frame perfect punch cancel at the beginning of phase 2 that you have to get to compete for the tied record. Overall, I would suggest that you study the current records and try to replicate exactly what is happening.

Thread: Video Requirements

Started by: Luvbaseball58Luvbaseball58

Any% requires video proof in submissions that clock in below 3:15:00.

Community moderation team will add the other video requirements into the rules as soon as we have come to a final conclusion regarding it. However, we generally request video for 242 submissions under/around 10 hours, and under/around 6 hours for 120.

You can play the game however you'd like, but I suggest using only the Wii remote without the motion controls to make it easier to time your inputs.

This game is timed IGT, which stands for "in game time". This means that the times the game gives you after each fight is added together throughout the runs. You can read more about this in the rules on this game's leaderboard.

Feel free to join the Discord (link in the game menu) if you want to discuss the game.

The Star Fox community would like it if you could move Star Fox 2 Beta ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​sf2b ) to become a prerelease of Star Fox 2 ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​sf2 ).

A lot of PO runners use a variation of a google spreadsheet, but you can simply just use the LiveSplit in game time options for a similar result.

If you add less than 3 decimals to a time the site handles them opposite to what you would expect. For example, typing in "44" as a decimal causes the time to be XX:XX.044 instead of XX:XX.440. Really weird and should not work like this imo.

This was not the case before the updated site layout.

Thread: Want to learn Any%

Started by: ItzGrayItzGray

The easiest way to learn a speedrun is to watch different runs and try to copy the movement and the current route that people are using. You could also search through the community resources for routes, tips and guides. I would also suggest that you join the community Discord.


Edit: I was slow.

Thread: Without Banktoad Category

Started by: Otterstone_GamerOtterstone_Gamer

(edited: )

You don't have to download anything, you can just save a file with a full Banktoad and copy it from a memory card inserted to your Wii/Wii U before every run. Takes approximately 30-60 seconds each time.

The variables are already separate. You can easily filter the leaderboard by region, platform or any other added variables on the upper right corner of the board.

Variables are meant to separate play styles when they do not differ enough to create completely separate categories. Using Banktoad or not is comparable to playing on different regions. It is still Any%, but with a minor difference that could sometimes be of importance to separate. But they are not important enough to separate into different leaderboards.

With that being said, you are always allowed to speedrun whatever category you see fit. A leaderboard is just meant to compare times more easily.

Thread: Starter rules are wierd

Started by: mcrocks4256mcrocks4256

I mean there is literally no community out there that puts multiple categories on a game leaderboard without runs on them. Normally, leaderboards add different categories once they have relative competition. Leaderboards does not set the rules for what you can and can not run. Instead, what people run makes the leaderboard.

My tip for you is to run the game and the categories you enjoy running,and if they get competitive they will earn a spot on the leaderboard.

That is pretty much what we would do, but I go through more sites than just SDA to make sure I find the best run (there are WRs not on SDA or Cyberscore).

Thread: Submitting for other players

Started by: topbananatopbanana

We are working on adding relevant IL times all the time, but there are a lot of times and a lot of differens level stars. The best thing anyone can do is simply just to submit all of their own runs and ask others to do the same. Times from other sources without any proof likely won't be added here though, since proven world records are basically the only thing that "needs" to be added.
