Thread: Are 1P2C strats allowed?

Started by: NTRGNTRG

yes, there was a bit of a controversy/debate about it ages ago but now its allowed, this was likely actually the same for other games, and I think the current WRs now use it?

it used to be a separate category because Ozotuh was an idiot, so prnced on a dead run decided to add in second player at the very end for a free meme WR

Thread: 100% Route

Started by: GustrbGustrb

Best bet would be to watch DAERDAEViL's run, it hasn't been routed a ton so you could definitely make progress with it, feel free to ask me on the discord about stuff, I haven't watched it in depth so I'm not sure how improvable it is, hell using Wii could be faster because of the skips, but load times are also a factor.

Thread: ****Revisiting the "Remove Duel from the Rankings" Discussion - 2016 EDITION****

Started by: alkamaassalkamaass

Nearly three years ago now, there was ample discussion in this thread: http://forums.the-elite.net/index.php?topic=19147.0 on whether or not Duel PA 0:09, or the Duel level all together should count as a WR or even be on the rankings in the first place. Given how in the past couple of years public opinion has shifted completely on things like Marc's converter or Berube's 53, I think now is a good time to revisit the argument for Duel being or not being on the world rankings.

--

Here are some arguments for Duel REMAINING on the rankings:

- It's always been that way since 2001

- Some ppl who worked hard for the Duel WRs would feel sad because their records would be removed

--

Here are some arguments for Duel BEING REMOVED from the rankings:

- Duel is unlike other missions in either GE or PD in that it is not unlocked by progressing through the game. It is unlocked by playing a training exercise outside of the missions of the game. This indicates Duel is more of an external training exercise than it is an in game mission.

- Duel was never ¤intended¤ to be played through as a distinct mission with its own story. It is a bonus stage. Every other level in GE/PD are part of the big story, or their own unique one. Duel is not.

- There is no cheat unlocked for beating Duel in a fast manner. Every other of the 40 stages in GE/PD do have a cheat unlock. Duel doesn't. If anything, the reason we began speedrunning these games was to unlock the cheats. Duel is unique in that it doesn't have this same quality.

- Since Duel has hundreds of ties, it no longer serves the ability to effectively rank anyone. A world rankings requires definition and difference between competitors in order to effectively rank its competitors. Since Duel is so full of ties, it is useless in this regard.

- Removing Duel would give Perfect Dark a 6000 point ceiling, in line with Goldeneye, improving consistency across both games.

Feel free to discuss your views on either side of the debate. I might update some points in the OP as they are brought up. Also I may add a poll in a few days but not until people have had time to discuss and debate before voting.

Started by: ZelcinaZelcina

approved it despite the major lag at the very end since I didn't want to deny a 7 hour run lol

please please do another run when you can without the lag at the end and ESPECIALLY show when it displays 100% on the screen

also send splits for this if you still have them since they are great to have

that's an interesting route, I'm guessing it's quite optimal?

what program did you use for splits? it should be fairly straightforward, just take a screenshot or picture of the splits

wow 8 hours?! what console was it on?

thats really sick, curious about the route for it so send splits, it won't be approved though because you need video proof, but if you can do sub 8 hours then you could just record it with a camera pointed at the TV, just try to get it so it doesn't look that bad on the camera (adjust brightness/saturation etc.) and make sure its pointed straight at the screen and not at a stupid angle

I can tell you what you can do for capture card options, depends what console it is though.

I will make a very quick tutorial on it, and by the way, I'm not 100% sure if it will work on xbox 360, so you'll have to test.
I also need to do any% tutorial but I'm lazy, it will come eventually though I swear.

Thread: GBA Version

Started by: mjm5Imjm5I

The answer is no, because in terms of gameplay, it is extremely different in terms of gameplay from the other consoles. Compare this video (http://www.speedrun.com/run/9mrll24m) with this video (http://www.speedrun.com/run/1zq2q58z). You see how different they are?

For this reason, the GBA is simply listed as a separate game here: http://www.speedrun.com/lswgba#All_Episodes.

about the lack of a capture card, yeah you could use another camera to record this, just try to use a high quality camera, people won't like it if you record on a potato, but its 2017 so you should be fine lol
