For the curious, I just uploaded my video talking about what exactly is a glitch.

Thread: What is the definition of a glitch?

Started by: Wak017Wak017

Thanks for all the answers everyone. I am currently making an explanatory video on what exactly is a glitch. Because the definition is all over the place and people can't seem to get along when it comes to define a glitch, as we saw here on this thread.

The video will make it very clear on what exactly is a glitch or not. However my intention is not to reopen discussion on various exploits and their bans or vice versa, I agree with what's currently banned and not banned in glitchless, for example. I just wanna point out that some exploits we call glitches, that I agree is banned in glitchless because it breaks the game too much, is not a glitch in it's definition.

Hello guys,

As the title says, I would be interested in knowing your definition of a glitch. Thank you in advance!

As I can see everyone throws the word "glitch" whenever they find something relatively out of the ordinary out there. I would like to know though, what is the definition of a glitch according to you?

Thread: Separate category that allows Turbo

Started by: Wak017Wak017

The use of turbo would also mean 3 frame perfect shine sparks, as well as being able to shoot beams in an inhuman speed + being able to shoot missiles in between at the top of it, highly reducing the time you take killing bosses. I highly suggest a separate category instead of allowing turbo in the main category alongside people without turbo

Started by: Wak017Wak017

Hello there,

As many speedrunners out there who have tried to speedrun the game, a good portion of it has to do with button mashing. Especially the bosses in this game rely on it.

While it's understandable that the use of turbo is banned on the main category, I suggest a separate one that does allow turbo, so that people can lay off the button mash a bit and compete equally with the use of a turbo. I am very certain there are many players that are interested in playing this, myself included.

I am confident I timed the run right. Also, IL category is complicated because real-time doesn't match in-game time, therefore multiple different ILs are needed, and the game isn't that popular enough for this at the moment

I mean I see it but the speed is kinda crazy, I'm assuming the controllers are attached to something, so that when you swing it swings faster

I'm also wondering how these punches are done. They are legitimate of course, but it's not clear how they're done

Also, Razinuh, could you do another high quality video of a 434 please? Doesn't have to be the one you put down, can be another. Needs the whole video up to when Mario is back in front of the princess peach castle.

Thank you.

Started by: Wak017Wak017

I was able to do more attempts today to reach a 434, still no success. It's quite curious, there is literally nothing to the level where I can possibly lose time.

At the top of it, the person in question seems to have very basic knowledge over not only the game and how to be fast at it, but also how the timer works in the game, and how you can measure a second "without having a timer".

I'll be fair here, as a top ninji player (it was not hard for me to reach a top 10-20 spot during the week, or reach a final rank in the top 20, even got top 2 during Rolling Snowball) there aren't that many souls out there outrunning me in this game, let alone this guy up there. BUT, just to be sure, I contacted KingBoo, many times ninji champion, which is easily a top 3 best speedrunner and arguably the best speedrunner in the game. I asked him to get a 434 on the level, we'll see how it goes. If kingboo can't get a 434, I assure you guys that nobody can.

And I would like to remind everyone that apparently, this guy up there was able to get a 434 as small mario, which is even more unbelievable as it's a frame slower.

My guess is that the timer got edited to look like a 434, which would explain why it curiously moved at the end of the video.

But again, the person in question removed the video. I mean, how can somebody be insulted of being accused of cheating at the same time as removing the piece of evidence?

I unfortunately don't have a recording setup anymore but I will try to get one within the next week.

To be honest with you guys, maybe 434 on this level is not even possible in the first place. Can people try to get 434? I would like to see if one soul could get 434.

You can simply go frame by frame in a video and calculate 60 frames my dude. The last second of your video exceeded the 60 frames. Again, put it available again and I'll show you.

I'm sorry to tell you Razinuh but destroying pieces of evidence is not something someone with nothing to hide would do. If you can please make your video available, again, I would gladly show you where the timer moves.

Greetings,

It came to my attention that the video provided by Razinuh, for the IL record of Deep in the Windy Valley was kind of suspicious. And the more I checked, the more I believe this run is not a 1:05.

First, at the very end, right before mario hits the tape, the timer actually moves. It could be some sort of graphical mistake, but it's really weird because when you go frame by frame, you see that the video is 60fps, but we can only see 30fps out of them. The timer actually moves during two identical frames.

Second, I remember when I speedran Buzzy: the book, the movie, the ride, I had a very hard time getting 24s because the timer actually continues 3 frames after you hit the pole. If you count the frames, mario hits the pole exactly 60 frames in the 434, but since the counter still goes for 3 more frames, it doesn't add up to a 434 but a 433.

Third! Just to be really sure, I opened my switch and tried to match the 434. Since the level is so linear it's not very hard to get a perfect time on it. And one thing that Razinuh doesn't seem to know is that you hit the pole 1 frame faster when you're big mario compared to small mario. Plus, that simili corner boost on the ceiling slope is not a thing, you can't gain time with this. Therefore I had one additional frame to spare over the runner, yet I've never been able to match his 434.

Therefore I strongly believe that we, unfortunately, have a cheater right there.

Thank you.

Greeting everyone,

Since the former moderator was not active anymore I requested to be able to moderate this channel myself and revive the speedrunning of this game a bit.

The former categories, any% and underground championship% didn't make much sense to me as much a Rookie, Pro and Champion categories. Therefore I moved all the any% runs to "Pro" as I believe everyone used this to category so far. If your run has been falsely put in Pro, please let me know. Also I will not remove the Underground Championship category right now in case I missed something relevant and somebody wants to point it out to me, but I won't update the category and will eventually remove it.

I also added the Workout%, which is to beat the game as Rookie, Pro and Champion in a single sitting.

I would also like to encourage the use of autosplitters / livesplit, but I don't even know how to have one myself. If someone could make a tutorial on their respective platform, that'd be great!

Thank you everyone and have a good workout!
