Thread: Leaderboard Updates

Started by: SjorecSjorec

Hey, I was talking with some other site staff about leaderboards that weren't set up well, and this one came into the discussion. Daravae ended up removing the current moderator as he hadn't been online for several months, and added me in his place because I expressed interest in running the game.

If you guys see this notification, it's just to let you know that the game's page isn't dead. I'll add SpaceCowboi's time linked in one of the other forum posts for now, but if he wants to remove it that's perfectly fine. I'm interested in messing around a little more with this game, so hopefully this update reinvigorates you guys. 🙂

Thread: Practice Code Save File?

Started by: UnbonesUnbones

The .gci file used for the practice codes isn't actually a set of TTYD save files. It just sits on the memory card and is loaded up when the included .gct file is present in the codes folder. It's perfectly okay to keep the practice code .gci on your memory card during runs if you're loading the game straight from the Wii without homebrew. It won't interfere with you saving the game like normal.

Thread: Category Extentions?

Started by: AverageCat

We currently have no plans to create a category extensions board for this game, mainly due to extremely low rate of follow-through by people who suggest additional categories. Feel free to make a Google doc if you want to track times for stuff like this. It's just hard to warrant a leaderboard for categories that only one or two people will ever play.

Thread: Prologue

Started by: OscuridadOscuridad

There was a community discussion some time ago about potentially adding ILs for individual chapters, but it was decided against. The problem with adding a prologue IL is it doesn't really add any meaningful option to the leaderboard. Every run does prologue right at the start anyway, and an optimal IL route would only eliminate some dialogue and a shop trip.

Thread: catagory extensions

Started by: terminator666999terminator666999

This topic has come up time and time again. If there's seriously a demand for a place to submit meme categories, anyone interested is welcome to create a google doc to organize leaderboards. This was done in the past, and the doc had 2 total speedruns after half a year, so the only conclusion I could draw is that the demand simply did not exist.

Thread: Game mods unable to edit forum posts by other mods

Started by: SjorecSjorec

Over at the TTYD boards, we have a forum post that's kept up to date with copies of the game that go on sale, making it an easy place for potential runners to find discs that might be difficult to obtain in their region. To accomplish this, multiple game mods are responsible for updating the post periodically. Sometime between 10/10/17 and today, the ability for moderators to edit other moderators' forum posts was taken away, which seems like a silly feature to remove sitewide.

Thread: Spontaneous Box Art Update

Started by: SjorecSjorec

Hey, the box art for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door was somehow updated, and after discussion, I've determined that none of the game mods did this. We were wondering if it could be reverted, because none of us can change it back.

Thanks!

Edit: Someone changed it back. It just took a while for anyone to see it.

Thread: Japanese 100% update?

Started by: shoopeyshoopey

The 100% category is basically getting a full reroute for the Japanese version. I wouldn't consider learning English 100% a waste of time, though. In fact, it's probably more of a head start. The transition shouldn't be too difficult after you learn some of the JP exclusive tricks.

(Also, the current 100% route's kind of unoptimal, even for English. Still doesn't mean using it's a bad thing.)

We can't link them on the forums because of previous events, but they're in my twitch info if you don't want to join the discord to get them.

Edit: After discussion it'll be up on the resources page sometime soon.

Thread: May i ask a question

Started by: RodnandRodnand

To put it shortly, USB loader and other similar means of launching TTYD are banned because they aren't official releases of the game. Not only that, but they offer a huge advantage on the grounds of unofficial hardware, which is why they won't be allowed for runs submitted to this leaderboard.

Thread: Individual Chapter Runs?

Started by: disorbeddisorbed

Individual chapters wouldn't really work well for this game. If you look at other games on the site, the only ones with successful IL tables are the ones with a strict level-based system. Having recorded ILs here would be pretty similar to the tables on the OoT and MM leaderboards: loosely based and essentially inactive, to put it shortly.

That's not to say you can't time and improve your own individual chapter times. It just wouldn't work well as a leaderboard in this game.

Thread: The Issue of Additional Categories

Started by: AllegroAllegro

You'll get better at the main categories by playing the main categories, not miscellaneous ones. Every single time on this leaderboard is certainly beatable if someone puts in the hard work. It's like that for every game.

Thread: The Issue of Additional Categories

Started by: AllegroAllegro

The fact of the matter is that we're probably not going to be adding any more categories to the leaderboard unless some new skips get found. Right now, we have Any% Japanese, Any% English/PAL, and 100% categories (All Stars will probably be a new addition if we find a way to skip more chapters, similar to Paper Mario 64's All Cards.) You need to remember that even if a category doesn't exist on the leaderboard, you're still welcome to run it. Just be at peace with the fact that it will not be added to the speedrun.com leaderboards. All Badges was removed earlier this week and I'll still be running that, even though it is no longer on the leaderboards. We can't tell you how to play video games, and we're not, but what we can do is determine what categories are leaderboard-worthy. Because of this, we're going to be sticking to the four categories mentioned above.

Thread: TTYD Japanese Copies

Started by: SjorecSjorec

Zephiles and I will try to keep this thread updated with links to Ebay auctions for Japanese TTYD. These games usually go for around $20-$30 including shipping. Anything higher than that isn't worth it.

Thread: New category

Started by: brodsy5

As of now there are plenty of English runners on the any% board. We plan to split the categories if a new skip is found in palace of shadows. This would further separate English and Japanese as the latter would be able to skip four entire chapters due to teleporter room early. For the moment, you can still post times to the any% board no matter which release of the game you're playing. You need to understand, however, that while the fastest times are going to be set using the Japanese version, English is capable of being brought down to a 5:35:xx or lower.

We've been considering splitting the Any% category into Japanese and English categories. I can't say for certain if it's going to happen or not. In the meantime you can still post English Any% runs to the leaderboards. If the categories do get split, we're almost certainly going to move all of the English runs done previously to their own board.

Hope I helped.
