I'm sure this has been recommended before, but in case it hasn't/has been forgotten, I think it'd be awesome if we could rearrange the runs we have in our profile.

I know it might sound stupid, but many of us run a lot of games and use our profile link when people ask our PB's etc. Personally, I like having my bread and butter games up top for people to see first. In instances where I run an obscure game or two when I'm goofing off in between B&B games, my good runs can get buried, forcing a new PB to get them back to the top.

Though my reason admittedly doesn't seem worthy to have other people do work to achieve, I'm sure there are more people who, for whatever their reason is, would like to see the same option.

Love,
Todd

I'm not aware of anyway to display a timer on when streaming from PS4 while streaming without using a capture card and PC. That said, somebody might know better than me.

You don't need a timer on stream, you can use outside or just time afterwards, however I do understand it for aesthetic reasons on stream.

Welcome aboard!

No worries, I do still believe this should be required though. It's best practice.

Are you planning on joining the tourney? 🙂

I don't disagree with a reset rule going forward with the video needing to show the reset.

As for the run, I've no reason to believe it was anything other than good RNG and practice with Zang.

Before I make the rule, I'll give everyone here a day or so to object with reason.

TL:DR https:/​/​challonge.​com/​sf2gb

All entrants are required to join the Discord server for communications and match organization: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​XQwSNgG

Tournament tentatively set to begin on Sunday, October 6th (pending 16 entrants).

The game speedruns rules are as follows:
-VBA banned! (Gambatte and BGB preferred for emu runs)
-Standard difficulty settings (difficulty 2).
-Timing starts after confirming character selection and ends on "you win" after M. bison.
-Sound is required.

The tournament rules are as follows:
1) Matches would be best of 3
2) Races would follow Speedrunslive rules (so you would need to live stream your run and make an SRC account)
3) Preferably have one race per week so we can keep the bracket moving
(I will update more as this gains attention)

I will also be setting up a prize pool:
16 entrants- 1st place $30, 2nd place $20
32+ entrants- 1st place $60, 2nd place $40

If you have any questions, reach out to me on Twitch/Twitter @TheGreatToddmanTheGreatToddman or on Discord!

Thread: SF2GB Tournament. . ?

I wanted to put a feeler out there for a Street Fighter 2 Game Boy Speedrun tournament. The goal of this would be to expand the exposure of the game, bring the streamers some extra spotlight and (hopefully) improve the WR.

I would be looking to start the tournament around October (to give all the school folk a chance to get used to the schedule change).

The rules I am considering are as follows:

1) Matches would be best of 3
2) Races would follow Speedrunslive rules (so you would need to live stream your run and make an SRC account)
3) Preferably have one race per week so we can keep the bracket moving
(I will update more if this gains attention)

There's a good chance we can get the tournament restreamed on Speedgaming if we get enough interest too which would thrill me greatly and get you a bit more exposure!

Also, if we get at least 16 entrants, then I'll reach in my pockets for a prize pool ($50 total: $30 for 1st, $20 for 2nd). If we get 32 people then I'll double the prize payouts!

Building up this game has been a personal project of mine for 2 years, help me bring this journey to new heights, who would be interested in participating? 🙂

Started by: MigJmzMigJmz

It was a known cheater making an alt. account. I had one of the site Mods take a peek at it to confirm and they banned the account.

Congrats dude! 🙂

Welcome to speedrunning and I hope you have good luck on your runs!

If I had to give my view, I know I feel much more fulfilled getting a decent time in a heavily competitive game then just beating a game nobody plays and saying "I have a WR". To each their own though and there's no shame in playing whatever you enjoy 🙂

I would advise you to immerse yourself in the subject! Pick up a game (doesn't have to be a long one) and give it a spin, spend a few hours experiencing it yourself and it might provide some natural insight.
