Thread: Has anyone tried playing on a joystick/fightstick on emu?

Started by: 2a03man2a03man

I know people have gotten FPG and done other tricks (4-2 bumps) on joystick, but I agree with Darpey, it would make it harder (but still possible), not easier.

Nostalgia = nestopia? I've never heard of nostalgia if that's actually what is meant.

Thread: best EMU for mac?

Started by: DonkeyMarioDonkeyMario

OpenEMU didn't have much lag for me at all @iBall1iBall1 ... did you use the nestopia core or the FCEU core when using it. I used the nestopia core. FCEU core was unplayable with the lag.

Both are recommended by me, as long as you use the Nestopia core for OpenEMU.

Thread: Leaderboard Cleanup

Started by: TecateTecate

Big thanks to @GTAce99GTAce99 for cleaning up the 2J/Lost Levels leaderboards as far as decimal timing goes.

From here forward we're only going to decimal time:

- Sub 8:10 FDS Any% Mario
- Sub 23 FDS Warpless 8-4 Mario
- Sub 14:30 Any% D-4 SNES Mario
- Sub 36:16 Warpless D-4 SNES Mario

We'll figure out decimal thresholds for Luigi and the misc. categories soon.

Also, thanks to @PacPac for the awesome new color theme of the 2J/Lost Levels board.

(we reserve the right to change these thresholds if necessary)

It's not cheating. As long as you are doing the button presses, and they can only be done in a way that an original NES controller can naturally be done, it's fine (so no L+R, no U+D).

Thread: @Mods I think that the 11x any% category should have times without time in between resets included

Started by: Lul_ecks_deeLul_ecks_dee

if that's the case, i'd propose we only need to framecount if a WR was in doubt, or maybe a top 3 time. I don't think anything beyond that needs a framecount/reset removal, and we just leave the reset time in (also incentivizes not doing long resets). We can change the rules to say that's the case for non-top 3 times or something.

I also agree on upper threshold, sitting for five (or however many long) minutes also can give an unfair advantage, what if I just left my stream on for 11 days and did 1 run per day to feel fresh each time (extreme dumb example, but yeah).

Also, how do we count reset time, are you able to wait 8 seconds on the title screen to fix the RNG?

I know in lost levels we only remove loads times, so title screen time still counts to the run time. That's why I've optimized my resets there for New Game runs. The loads are constant time each run (so you only need to calulate one run worth of loads), and i'm mashing on the title screen.

Also please read Change 2 here:

We will be dropping millseconds from the times for some categories and implementing thresholds for the others where milliseconds will be used. This leaderboard is not intended to be taken as seriously as the main leaderboard, and as such, does not necessarily warrant framecounting a very high percentage of the runs that are submitted.

does it need to be longer? I doubt we're going to remove reset times. they are variable between every run so there's no efficient way to do that

this is a category extension, not a main category. if someone wants to run a leaderboard with reset times removed, they are more than welcome to. But I seriously doubt the mods will want to do this.

It's pretty standard in multiple games/runs to include reset times. Learn to optimize that as well.

what @periwinkleperiwinkle said ... try checking the options to see if VSync is enabled. If it is, you need to disable it.

Thread: The Super Marihour game order

Started by: SuperMegaDavSuperMegaDav

Yeah it should definitely be a new category, because it does mean that people who play by the spirit of the challenge and preserve the chronological order are at a disadvantage for “WR” by not having a flexible order.

Also, we absolutely can have any%, Warpless, and 100% versions. There are protocols for each of these games in other multiple Mario categories, and we’d follow those rules (ex: Any% category SMB3 would be any% no wrong warp)

I fully support this idea. I’ll try to check in with the other mods to see what they think.

Thread: 2weeks

Started by: trapmixtrapmix

Hello,

I was supposed to have my wisdom teeth out this week, but it turns out the dentist was wrong and I don’t need them out.

That will free up time for me to go through the queue this week and knock out any outstanding runs of more than a few days.

After that I will be out of commission for a month while I visit my brother twice in September across the country, who has terminal cancer, then preparing for GDQx after that. So I will be unable to verify all of September.

I’ll help get the queue down to a reasonable size this week.

Locking this thread.

@kaku52kaku52 I wish I could participate, but I will be unavailable that day, or I would definitely sign up.

I will be visiting my brother on the other side of the USA.

Best of luck for running the tournament, I'm happy to help in any way, if I can leading up to the tournament.
