Thread: Reminder about milliseconds

Started by: UvideoUvideo

Lately we’ve been getting a LOT of submissions containing milliseconds. I just wanted to post this reminder that milliseconds are ONLY used for Any% runs under 25:00 and nothing else, so PLEASE make sure not to include them in your submission time. Also make sure you are submitting the same time for with and without loads. It may not seem like a big deal but when every other submission is getting these things wrong, it can be tedious for mods to have to edit all the runs.

Thread: Leaderboard Changes Regarding Loads

Started by: UvideoUvideo

It's been known for quite some time now that the Wii and Wii U do not have consistent loading times for this game, and while this is pretty negligible for most people, it can make a big difference for top runs. From the runs we've timed so far, loading times can vary by more than 10 seconds for an Any% run and are not even consistent on each Wii, meaning someone could miss out on getting a PB because of having slower load times than their previous run. For the sake of allowing top runners to compete on the same playing field, it was decided some leaderboard changes should be made regarding the "top runs" which at the moment are considered to be the Any% runs under 25 minutes.

The following is the list of the changes that were made:
- Runs under 25:00 are ranked by a "without loads" column
- Runs ranked without loads also now use milliseconds to prevent ties
- For categories besides Any%, top runs may be ranked without loads if mods decide that it makes an important difference (i.e. a player gets a time that is WR without loads but not with loads)

In the future, the barrier for runs being ranked without loads will be expanded (most likely to 25:30), but this change was made now, so that the Any% leaderboard could be more fair. I will be updating this thread as more changes regarding loads are made.

Shoutouts to FadeVanity, PidgeyProwler, TheCodingBoy, Lachurs, Gix01, and R0main for helping to make this change 🙂

Thread: New category?

Started by: king_dededeking_dedede

Me and Juice had talked about racing "Star World Ending" before, but never really put together a route. I would say a good rule of thumb would be to try to cut out as many levels as possible and mostly get every star coin in the levels that you do. It's a good idea, but it's definitely gonna be difficult to route because of how many possibilities there are for what to do in the post game.

All Castles might be cool too since cannonless skips worlds 4 and 6

just put new3DS as the console, it doesn't really matter since there's no load differences

Just watch how Juice does M-A in the AC wr. That’s really all you need to see.

During 1-Cannon, collect the 8 red coins to put a gold flower into your reserve. Then, instead of getting the normal exit in M-1, get the secret exit along with coins 1 and 3. Don’t get coin 2 since this coin requires gold flower which will replace your tanooki suit. After M-1 secret, go to M-A and use the gold flower there. This speeds up the level by about 5 seconds. M-A gold flower strats can be seen in Juice’s All Castles WR. After M-A, go back to M-1 and get the normal exit along with the second coin. You should finish the level as Fire Mario with a leaf in reserve. Do M-2 as Fire Mario and damage boost through the urchin at the end. Equip your reserve leaf in the room with coin 3. From here, the route is the same as before until your second visit to World M, where you can skip M-1 secret and M-A, since you already did them, and take the faster overworld path to M-3 and continue as normal.

I think separating runs the way SM64 does (into console, emu, and VC) would be the best way. I don’t think it would be fair to remove runs that people have worked so hard on (like ILoveSMB’s)

26:0x is technically humanly possible, but we'll probably continue to find new strats

Thread: New "Gold" Route for Any%!

Started by: UvideoUvideo

The route saves around 3 seconds so it's not worth it unless you have either sub 26:30 or something very close to that. This route is also slower if you don't get the clip.

This had been theorized for awhile, but wasn't really worth the time it saved until burner clip was found. Even now, I wouldn't suggest using this route unless you're going for WR because burner clip is pretty difficult.
