Hi ! I think we should split this game in two categories : glitchless et with glitch. It should be more fair ! What do you think ?

I agree with that, that's clearly not the same routing with glitches

Do you consider that the skip message before janken is a glitch ? Personnally yes.

I don't see the point; Just play without the glitches you're uncomfortable with. A different route does not a category make.

I'll consider adding a variable that says "uses glitches" if you really want to compare yourself against runs with or without glitches, but this is opening a significant can of worms about what is and isn't a glitch.

The two castles skip is not enough for you to define what is a glitch ? I think it's not fair that maybe the 4th best time is the best time without glitch and that it's not possible to gave the wr without glitch.

Everyone is able to do the screen wrap glitch if they want.

What about the dialog skip glitch?

 
  btrimbtrim

Since you seem to be so insistent, I added a variable.

I then went through each run and by your own feeling of what a glitch is, I determined that every single run (though I can't determine randomjulien's run as the video is deleted) uses a "glitch" of some kind (at least the pause before janken).

So there you go, you have your pseudo-category.

Really nice thank you ! Can you do a real category system with a new tab and not a filter ?
It would be very nice since we have now two different ways to beat the game !
Thanks you man.

You used the cane before Janken, so I guess you don't feel that's a glitch. If you'd like to write the rules on what isn't allowed I can add them to a new category and move the runs.

I still don't see the point, but whatever.

I used the skip with the cane because felipe used it and you put it on the no glitch category. Rules should be no text skip no castle 1 and 2 glitch and for the cane skip i’m not sure but it’s juste the use of an item but it’s true we skip the boss. So as you wish but do the same for everyone.
