I believe someone said downpatching was pretty easy to do on it. I don't have any experience with it myself though

Then you can't change it unless there's a way to dispatch from the Windows store. The option to revert to Legacy is only available on Steam, GOG, etc.

Thread: New Categories and Extra Boards

Started by: SalmonBuffaloSalmonBuffalo

Hey everyone, just wanted to drop a note about some exciting new additions to the Cuphead community, so I'll get right to it:

1) We've added the new category requiring all bosses and all run and guns to the main boards. This category has been dubbed All Flags. This is sort of the middle category between AB and 100%, so I'll be interested to see what you all can do with it!

2) As I mentioned in our Discord server, our request for a Category Extension board has been approved. As of this moment, it is also set up and ready for submissions! Currently we have 5 categories on this board for your amusement. I hope you enjoy these categories!

These boards also come with their own forums, so if you want to discuss the extension categories, please make use of that space. If you want to see more categories on the Extension board please let one of the mods know so we can consider it. You can find the Category Extension boards here: https://www.speedrun.com/Cuphead_Category_Extensions

3) Back in the early days of Cuphead speedrunning, there was discussion about adding a Highest Grade category to the boards. I've seen some talk of it spring up recently and would like to get your opinion on the matter. I'll be opening a poll in the morning so we can vote on it. There is a very similar category on the extension boards (All S+P Grades) that would be the model for this proposed category, though we would open it to all difficulties and potentially remove the Run and Gun requirement.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to one of the mods!

Thread: Cuphead Tournament

Started by: SalmonBuffaloSalmonBuffalo

We've decided to go with a standard bracket tournament for our first event. There are plenty of ideas we can use for future events, but given that this is the first, we wanted to go with something easy and accessible to boost interest in competitive Cuphead.

If you want to compete, please go to the following link and sign up. Make sure to read the description, which contains important information about the tournament format.

Feel free to ask questions here, but the best way to make sure we see it would be to use the #tournaments channel in our Discord!

Thread: Cuphead King Dice Glitch?

Started by: EdobeanEdobean

Yeah, casually, it's okay of course. But we've decided to ban it for runs because it sort of violates the rules of not using another save, since switching profiles means you don't have access to the file you're running

Usually we have them done within a couple of days, but we're a little backed up due to the holidays. We are working on the backlog now, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

Thread: Board Updates - Menu Glitch and Patch

Started by: SalmonBuffaloSalmonBuffalo

It is possible, but since the tabs represent full categories and sub-categories are variations on those, I feel like it should stay as is personally

Thread: Board Updates - Menu Glitch and Patch

Started by: SalmonBuffaloSalmonBuffalo

Haha no worries.

The point of having the glitched categories split is for those who want to run the other categories on the new patch. The whole reason we had the poll in the first place was because we tried having the new patch limited to Glitchless stuff only and people complained about being locked into one type of category. For one, Xbox runners have to play on new patch so they can now run all categories again. Furthermore, there may be PC runners who want to run on current patch as well. It's simply there as an option for those who can't/don't want to play old patch.

1) Possibly. I'll think on it throughout the day and if it's better the other way switch it around.

2) Why shouldn't the glitched categories have the version split? That's what the entire poll was about.

3) I can't make Current Patch the default without making it the default for everything due to how I have those subcategories set up

Thread: Board Updates - Menu Glitch and Patch

Started by: SalmonBuffaloSalmonBuffalo

Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop a line about the poll results, both for Menu Glitch and for the patch:

1) Regarding the patch, technically option 2 won, though after some discussion about the implementation, we've decided to go with option 3 because it's going to be way easier to implement over option 2, while providing the same end result of splitting the versions. We also discussed this with those who voted for 2 and everyone seemed to be more than accepting of this option. The new boards will look similar to the IL boards with Legacy and Current Patch subcategories. Given the ease of implementation, it should be done by the time you read this.

2) Regarding Menu Glitch, the poll shows that there is interest enough in trying for a separate category where it's banned. For now, we're going to start out with All Bosses - No Menu Glitch. If there's enough interest in more categories. we can figure something out, but I don't want to create an entire set of new categories with this glitch banned because it's going to look messy. I'd like to limit to No Menu Glitch stuff to maybe 2 or 3 categories at most. We can figure those out as we go forward though.

TL;DR — We're splitting versions by subcategory (Legacy and Current Patch, much like the IL boards); We're also somewhat splitting out the Menu Glitch, but currently only into a new All Bosses category, since that's likely the most popular one. Future No Menu Glitch categories can be discussed later if there's enough interest

That's this issue at the heart of this debate. Clearly, there's a need for us to split pre/post patch runs, but the question is how to do it. The way you suggested is one of the leading options, but there has been a lot of talk about a version filter as well
