Thread: I Admit To Cheating But...

Started by: GerogeMacGerogeMac

I do not care one whit what any random shitter on here thinks I should or should not do. See any of the other locked threads for confirmation.

If I come across as a aggressive, I apologize, I was going more for abject apathy of any of the 20 of these questions about these lbs I've gotten from random shitters.

Thread is locked, if you want to be a keyboard warrior, take it elsewhere. I'm sure there are plenty of other worthy causes.

Thread: VC and emulator are now BANNED

Started by: GothicLogicGothicLogic

This is a step in the right direction, but you stop before the real change can be properly addressed. You need to ban anyone from submitting to N64 that has ever submitted a VCheat or EmuCheat run, otherwise they'll just bring the cheating disease over to God's chosen console.

Thread: Question about categories

Locked, because a person who actually runs the game, and thus, I care about, wants it so. Dictatorship still in session, I will delete any more threads regarding this, unless again, its someone who runs the game.

Thread: Question about categories

Started by: Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531

Tell you what, cyberdemon531. Wait, is that an accurate name? Have there actually been 530 other cyberdemons? Because to me, having numbers after your name would indicate that there is a series of things named in such a fashion. Please bear in mind, I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just trying to help you look less retarded in front of the whole speedrunning community.

Get a signed and notarized affidavit from every speedrun.com mod of every game that they'll have accurate naming conventions across the board, and I'll change the names. Until then, no.

Edit: Dictatorship ensues. Riot.

Thread: Question about categories

Started by: Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531

For more fuel for your fire, 100% isn't actually 100%. Low%, not actually low%. RBO, or reverse boss order, not actually reverse boss order.

To continue the trend, alttp low%, not actually low%. sm64 0 star, not actually called any%. oot glitchless, not actually glitchless. smw 0 exit, not actually called any%. Super Meat Boy any%, not actually any%.

Names are just that, names. You making mountains out of this molehill, when there are so many other examples of "poorly named" categories on this site tells me that the only reason you're here, is to create drama, and maybe for some reddit karma or something later when you post about "How dumb the SM Community is." You saw this opportunity for circle-jerking and decided to latch on to it with everything you've got.

To incorrectly quote someone from earlier in the thread: "Don't be afraid of change, gentlemen. Don't get hung up on keeping something named a certain way."

Its not a big deal, life will keep on being lived, and in the future, if and when someone beats Oatsngoats' world record, you can tell all your friends that "Its not the actual any%, that's factually incorrect."

Thread: Question about categories

Started by: Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531

I was flippant in my reply earlier, because I was relatively certain you weren't being earnest either. Super Metroid has had a lot of controversy and arguments over naming conventions and categories, and has been that way for a very long time. Believe me when I say, you're preaching to the choir. I could go into pretty long detail and depth for the history in the current naming scheme we have for the different categories, but the long and short of it is: this was the compromise we made.

Update:

Every single category should be up to date and in sync with deertier.com, minus the person(s) that don't wish to be here on speedrun.com. All runs are on here, but they're not all updated with the correct extra information that deertier does not provide. That is a project that I'll work on eventually.

//edit: forgot to add that there are categories missing on here that are on deertier. Those are obviously not complete and in sync with deertier. I'll add PAL any% as soon as I figure out a non-intrusive way to do so. any% IGT is an issue I'd like to bring up to the community as a whole, but I'm currently planning on adding it, regardless of how I feel about it. Low% MG All bosses is pretty much... pointless, for various reasons, mainly involving using glitches to trick the item %age counter. Low% MG could be added, but I'm waiting to see the results of the current community votes, ditto for chargeless. There, I think that covers it.

I got rid of the ILs, and moved them back to Misc. It was a bad idea to have them in ILs to begin with, I'll admit.

There are currently 3 polls regarding the leaderboards.

The first is pretty much over in a landslide : http://www.strawpoll.me/11799019/r
It seems you all want the current URL, so it'll remain that way.

The second and third are on deertier.com's front page, but I'll link them here as well. They're both regarding the organization of the low% NMG route choices (item choices to add up to 14%)

I'll make an update post here as I'm going to bed.

-ceres and croc are migrated to ILs, and should be complete for now

-low%s are a work in progress. there are still times to include

-I know people talked about wanting to include every 14% branch in the same leaderboards and just have different branches not obsolete each other so people can submit multiple runs, this is mainly why I haven't included the other 14%s yet, just to reduce the amount of work it would be to combine the branches again if that is decided. I'm somewhat in favor of the idea myself, but I'd have to see how it turns out to fully formulate my own opinion

-gt code categories aren't complete

-ssrta isn't complete

-some people don't want their times on here, and that's fine, no sweat. it will make updating both deertier & sr.com more difficult, for the nonce. deertier mods have been given the ability to submit times for an already existing name on deertier for now to help combat leaderboards drift.

-I'm keeping the speedrun.com verification on for now, as it makes it much easier to ensure the respective submitted time is on deertier as well, to avoid leaderboards drift.

-I'm still open and receptive to adding more mods here if the community wants/desires it. I've taken it upon myself to add some interim mods to help me in the process. if you have any problems with who's been added, I guess you can say something here or message me privately.

-the extra variables that deertier didn't track that I've included in these leaderboards are a constant work in progress. you're welcome to update your own runs, but the current goal is to try to flesh out these extra data soon (tm)

anything else? I can't think of anything for now, so I guess that's it.

Thread: don't want your runs/information to be on Speedrun.com?

Started by: andrewwandreww

I understand some of you may not like having your times on speedrun.com. However, the current plan is to mirror the two leaderboards so that you may submit to either site, and your time will appear on not just the site you submitted to, but also the other. In order for this to work, phantomsnake has decided that the plan is to eventually have deertier act as a frontend, and not host any data. This means you don't have to interact with speedrun.com if you do not want to. However, if you delete your times from speedrun.com while this process is being worked upon, you may not eventually have times on deertier.com.

Thread: Editing your runs

Started by: andrewwandreww

hi, if you want to edit your runs on here, since they've been submitted on your behalf without any of the extra variables, YOU CAN DO THAT!

log in, and on the run page, in the run box area, there are three dots, you can click that, and "edit run"

it'll be resubmitted with the corrected info

finally added rules for the categories, except for ceres. if anyone has ideas for what the "rules" for ceres should be, I'm all ears.

//edit:
fixing ceres. my current solution is to include millisecond timing so you can submit the hundredths part of the igt

also, from suggestions, putting ceres, croc, & ss in ILs, because that's probably more indicative of what they are. objections, lady?

//edit2:
oh I forgot to mention, this means that you can technically submit millisecond timing for all categories. instead of opening up that can of worms, I'm asking people to politely refrain from including milliseconds in all runs unless its ceres. mods, you can edit runs as they submit them to truncate milliseconds, or reject them outright for now.

if anyone's runs are submitted under a name that isn't their own on speedrun.com, let me or a mod know and we'll fix them. that's top priority for me atm

if you'd like to add your own run's variables, i.e. igt/route/platform, you can edit your runs yourself

Thread: hi, speedrun.com is here

Started by: andrewwandreww

Alright so the times are finally migrated over. There are a number of things I would like to address, guess I'll just do it in bullet format:

-Obviously low%, gt code, and ceres need to be fixed, I'll work on that today

-The extra variables, like route, igt, platform, need to be updated

-There are currently only 2 mods, strae and myself. I'd like the community to decide who else should be modded

-Currently the leaderboards are operating on "verification needed", ie a mod needs to approve a run before it appears on the leaderboards, I just set it to that while the times were being imported to avoid having runs overwritten

-if you have any thoughts, concerns about the way the site looks, now is the time. I just made it look as close to deertier as I could, so if that's not good, or not good enough, let me hear it

-custom icons for 1st-3rd place (or 4th, if we want to have a custom icon for 4th) anyone interested in submitting their ideas?

-any other comments or concerns, tell me here or on discord
