Thread: Why is the japanese re-release banned for any% category ?

Started by: SuperYoshiSuperYoshi

By "overclocked", I mean the anniversary collection doesn't lag. I'm not sure about the frame rate it runs at, though.

Maybe I'm out of the loop, but I don't understand the interest in the Famicom reissue. The leaderboard is built around the North America NES release. Since the Famicom version grants an advantage, the default rom will change to the '93 reissue which is a massive shift. Allowing the Famicom release on the any% board gives all future runners a slight advantage over the existing times with heart countdowns, not to mention most people who play on hardware are going to have to switch from authentic cartridges to powerpaks with the Famicom rom.

All these factors together strike me as problematic.

These are just my opinions. I haven't heard from truefalse or the Castlevania supermods. There is no final decision, etc.

Here are a few of my thoughts on the matter.

I haven't seen any PC submissions yet. Doesn't look like there's much interest in running the anniversary collection.

In general, I'd argue that emulator is still the most accessible version.

With the anniversary collection running an overclocked PRG0 version, I'm more in favor of removing it from the platforms instead of allowing Famicom reissue submissions for any%. In the off chance a new player purchases the anniversary collection and wants to run the game, there's always PRG0 (unfortunately) or "Easy" mode. If it catches their attention, he or she could consider moving to another platform.

The 93 Famicom reissue counts down the extra hearts faster than the other versions.

Hope this answers your question.

Nevermind, the changes to platform/console didn't take because I neglected the save button. Fixed.

Deleted JP "normal" (empty) and brought out "Easy" from Misc.
I can't update the platforms/consoles though. Probably need a true mod for that piece.

Looks like a good idea to me. It's a well known password too. Let's get some more opinions.

I think Justin Bailey is going to boil down to an iceless category. Would we allow UP + A's too?
