Thread: 11 Exit (PAL on NTSC)

Started by: ConCon

As I say to every category suggestion; do runs regardless of whether there's a leaderboard and if enough people also do it and find it fun then maybe it'll be added.

Thread: Looking out the window?

Started by: RetroBrandoRetroBrando

I always questioned it myself to be honest, but didn't think I should change the rules for a category which already had runs when I became a moderator of the game. (I did change the name to 100% though. I think we can agree the old name of "100% with Window CutScene" was dumb lol)

@Brandooates I've added you as a mod so you can do as you like with the leaderboards; while I'm always on speedrun.com I'm not all too active within this game.

Thread: Hi i have a question about IL's

Started by: pyroboxpyrobox

speedrun.com isn't really a great site for ILs of this game, since there's so many categories you could have for each exit. (cape, no cape, small etc)

I do agree though, that we kinda need a better place to find ILs than just looking through different people's YouTube channels

Yeah, most recent version is fine. There's no reason you'd need an older one as far as I know

There's a few things this could be, since your description is pretty vague. Namely: input delay, still-active flight meter, just.. you know... jumping twice

If you're curious about the 'behind the scenes' of why it works, this is a great video to watch

Thread: Stupid Virus Orb

Started by: DoomitDoomit

When Mario grabs the coin off Yoshi's tongue, the sprite slot that the coin was in is still "attached" to the tongue. Then when the chuck spawns, it'll spawn in that sprite slot and warp to Yoshi's tongue and get eaten. It's this eating of the clappin' chuck as fire mario which gives you the orb

Okay, so Mario has to grab the coin which is on yoshi's tongue before yoshi eats the coin, I'll explain more in a sec

Could you link a video? Orb will work no matter what emulator you're using so if I can see what you're doing wrong I should be able to help

Security has nothing to do with a speedrun. If it's valid it's valid; it doesn't matter even if your computer could go boom. You did the speedrun and it's accurate enough to be accepted

Thread: What third-party controllers are allowed in runs?

Started by: Uncle_Steve-PupUncle_Steve-Pup

Normal controllers can do left+right or up+down, but it's banned RTA anyway. 😉

Started by: Uncle_Steve-PupUncle_Steve-Pup

Should be fine. As long as the controller isn't using turbo etc, any are allowed

As I always say, feel free to run what you want, but this seems like the most pointless suggestion yet in my opinion

Thread: Help with Fast Strats + Cloud Help

Started by: chunkySoupchunkySoup

As for cloud, I can't really help as I use a different setup, but I'll answer your question about randomness by saying no. It should be consistent if you do the setup right. No real randomness involved.

Sorry I can't really help too much on this one, but I'm sure somebody else will. There's also a discord server with a #help channel which is more active than the forums here. You can join it at discord.me/smw if you haven't already
