Is there an active speedrunning discord for this game? I saw the sticky thread but the link seems outdated.
There is a discord icon below the follow button that should link to it. At some point the old animal crossing discord got deleted and a new (albiet very similar) one was created, so the old link probably refers to the deleted server whereas that button seems updated
I Changed the timer start for Animal Crossing: New Horizons speedrun since 2022-02-28
Former timer start Select nintendo account
Current timer start Fade out upon launching the game
Reason Some runners lose the timer because of the "checking if the software can be played..." message.
