Yeah that sounds good. I started with the ENG version too before switching to JP. There's maybe 5 minutes of timesave between versions. I still might do a commentary video later anyways because the JP WR from Onion is crazy. It's around 1:46:50 or something like that

Thread: ENG / JP differences

From what I remember it's basically just faster text since JP scrolls faster with fewer characters.

This is most noticeable during pure talking cutscenes like when you talk to the king, but I'm pretty sure it slightly speeds up battles too.

I didn't see any other differences between things like monster growth charts or affinities or anything like that though.

Let me know if you want some help getting into the game and I can do an english commentary video on WR.

Yup Gameboy player is fine to use, and that's actually what the WR holder told me he uses.

Are there any significant differences I should be aware of before I start learning the JP version?

I've seen from other runners that the Goopi patterns are different, but I wasn't sure if all the monsters have the same level up skills, exp charts, etc.

Since I'm not able to read Japanese, I'm asking if there's anything that might trip me up if I only memorize a couple item names and monster skills.

Thanks,

Thread: Rules and Timing

Started by: BloodymaryBloodymary

Quick question about rules and timing...

I'm practicing any % for an attempt at the leaderboard, but I'm trying to run it on an emulator so I don't have to buy all the hardware.

Are there any gbc emulators that are agreed to be valid as far as a speedrun is concerned?
I was originally using VBA to practice with, but it seems like I should switch to either Gambatte or BGB for more accurate timings.

Also, are timing pauses allowed?
