Hey all, H0ff here. Gold and I as well as the other mods were trying to think up some more fun categories to add to the Board's that could spice up the speedrun!

I had originally been looking for some possible Arena-based runs like Challenge% or Trials% but never got much further in to routing or working out how the rules would work. (But if enough people support this maybe I would?!)

Just GIVE US YOUR SUGGESTIONS!!! GIVE ME EVERYTHING.

I want your BAD IDEAS. I want your GOOD IDEAS. I want your MEMES... I want your SHORTER RUNS IDEAS (that dont require me to bhop and break my index controller again)!!!! EVEN YOUR MEME RUN IDEA COULD GET ACCEPTED!!!!!(as long as it's actually fun to run)

So yeah moral of the story is that you should tell us what you want to see and maybe I'll try routing it or something (dont you dare give me another 8hour run idea).

dog mentioned Monkey% which I like the idea of.

There is supposedly a monkey in every level and the idea would be you have to reach the end of the level with the monkey in hand. It would be interesting because you you cannot put it in your inventory and would have to parkour with one less hand.

Haven't looked into routing to know if its possible or even fun.

balloon%, like NG+ but just with balloon gun, I feel like it could be a fun hybrid of any% and ng+ strats with some curveballs thrown in there

MisterMan has done a Any% No Jump where you dont jump at all. Perfect for players who dont want the physical requirements of bunnyhopping or super jumps.

in response to that monkey% idea, are we 100% sure there's a monkey in every level, as i can't think of any other than the one in the menu and the one in breakroom. specifically arena and dungeon worry me as i can't think of anywhere they'd be hidden.

I would also back my own Any% Jumpless, even if it's relegated to Category Extensions or something.

I like doing ammo% ILs. Boneworks box% is something I want to do as well, but those might keep changing every patch.

what if we had a run where you played on an older version of the game. I seem to recall a pretty cool bug where you could fly by spamming the Jump and Slowmo buttons /s

didn't we remove flight% because nobody wanted to go to the trouble of installing an older version to play it?

I think a collection category would be a good addition. All Boneworks boxes seems like the easiest to implement and moderate to me.

I really like the idea of Boneworks box%. I'm just wondering how we would handle new boxes being added in patches.

You could maybe keep records from the most current patch in Box% and move old patch Box%s to misc categories, though it's not a super elegant solution I don't think

i feel like bonebox% would be better to add way down the line after HotMK goes into development and we can confirm boneworks isn't getting more updates

Genocide%: Kill any and all NPCs in every level, yes, even the Nullrats. Infinitely spawning enemies (such as the hordes in Time Tower and Throneroom) are exempt.

Sourceruns%: Complete the game by bunnyhopping backwards.

Buttonmasher%: Press all the buttons in the Museum as fast as possible.

One in the Chamber%: In order to use a gun, you must chamber a round and eject the magazine immediately after.

EmptyMag%: Softlock yourself in the Breakroom as fast as possible

I managed to get myself stuck in the first gate as I attempted to run through, and wasn't able to escape its vice grip.

As of the April 9th update, the redacted chamber was added to the game... Maybe a category specifically for this? redacted% sounds alright in my mind but i'm open to suggestions

Genocide run? Same rules as Any& but you must kill every enemy that there is in the level that you play on.
