Thanks Kirua! I'll give it a go and record some attempts. I doubt I'll ever be near the top. I don't have the dedication to put in that much work. I did manage to get one time (unrecorded) that would have just barely put me on the board though.

Hi everyone. I'm new to speedrunning, so please excuse me if these are dumb questions. From what I understand, each game community may have different rules; so I want to make sure I'm doing things right.

Would it be considered acceptable to submit runs done with FCEUmm libretro core? FCEUmm should have no difference vs FCEUX for SMB3 (it's based on the same code, but adds some extra mappers for weird/homebrew carts). I would use FCEUX, but it seems to have issues with controllers on Linux (and I don't want to run Windows). Libretro is much nicer anyway.

Is live streaming required for submitting SMB3 any% runs?

What is required in the recording/stream? Just the game? Facecam? Timer? Controller input display?

Thanks, and apologies again if these are dumb questions.
