Thread: New categories

Okay, its great that you linked that because its a category extension leaderboard just as I mentioned we should use... It does make sense to only use the Lee twins for competition, since the game is a legit meme with how bad the toads are in it...

If we were to make a category extension leaderboard (one that could be displayed on the tab there in our main category's LB, it just goes underneath the full runs there) and put a bunch of empty meme categories that no one is ever going to run, I would be cool with it. I would like to note it has been 5 days since I have posted this, this being after the request for the categories, and the person who has requested them has neither responded to this topic or submitted a run and I have messaged them previously as well. (They have messaged me back, still waiting for their input)

If there was any serious type of competition, and not simply limiting yourself making it a meme/challenge run, and or even if we had even just one person who has routed it or done a run then maybe I could understand the reason for adding it... but clearly it just seems that the intent is to have free categories to get a non competitive WR in, and it looks really ugly on the leaderboards which I personally actually care about.

Not to mention all this should have been discussed prior to the change, since the leader board did in fact NOT look like this before hand, and the switch was simply made years after the split from the old lb.

Just because you haven't done a run yet before doesn't mean your input is invalid, I will admit I am probably coming off a little hostile and its most likely reflected off of the fact that I feel personally attacked and pretty upset MAINLY just because this decision was made without any prior discussion at all... I do not in anyways wish to pick a fight here... this is why I took the time to message you in the first place, so I do apologize if I am coming off much more aggressive than I mean too, but it is something I am indeed very passionate about.

EDIT: TLDR basically I don't like that it was done without discussion, I don't like that it was added without any clear interest in the categories or previous runners, I am a little upset about past stuff and dealing with a whole lot (I am sure a lot of people are) and probably sounding overly aggressive with my point of discussion and I apologize for that... I really don't mean to be a jerk I am just upset.

Thread: New categories

Okay I see where you are coming from, I wasn't aware of any of this discussion, and the main issue for me was the complete lack of communication on the subject before change.

Personally I just find the LB to look really sloppy if there are no runs, I can understand if people wanted to run a meme category for fun, I just don't think it warrants a category on the LB.

The point of speedrunning is to be both fast and competitive, where I can see the argument of doing arbitrary rule sets for fun, and I am all for that too, I don't see a run with the toads being fun at all, its certainly not fast, and thus making it a very very arbitrary category. I don't personally agree with having random meme categories on SRC so that people can have a free WR, or to stuff it there just because there could potentially be a run... and those categories usually get thrown into their own category extension LB (if we are going to compare to how other games/leader boards are) and this way it looks much more organized.

Again this is just my opinion and I don't personally call the shots, as I think no one individual should.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that I have been running and following this game for a very long time.. way before I ever submitted a time to SRC, you were not even on the LB at the time Fluffy, and you were not a mod. I brought this up to everyone so we can discuss things as a community, and it has nothing to do with the other community boards since as you have stated we are separated and our own game now... for good and obvious reasons.

Well if someone was interested in doing a specific run of their own special rule set, I don't see the problem with them doing so, just like there is a guy who does deathless run attempts of this game that I talk to.

Just because a category isn't on the SRC leaderboards doesn't mean that people cannot run it, this has always been the case for all types of gaming/speedrunning. As I had stated however, I don't like that this was done without any particular discussion anywhere once so ever, nor do I agree with these categories being here without a single run done.

If there was some type of competition then I could see it warranting a category extension, but I do not agree with adding a bunch of empty categories to the main leaderboard, especially just because there "may" be interest... No one is even discussing the game anywhere, and as such a small community I would figure working through issues like this shouldn't be too hard.

I would certainly like to hear other's opinions on the matter. As one of the few and only active runners of this game, I greatly value the appearance, and representation of our boards as well as our ability to discuss things like this. This is just my feelings, but I am really hoping to hear everyone else's.

EDIT: Also I would like to add that I understand that our game is a part of a popular series and even tho there is a NES version of the game, the two are entirely different and this is why we have a completely different leaderboard for the two. I do not in any way wish to represent the NES version (I run the SNES version for a reason, I know nothing about the NES version nor have I ever played it) nor emulate what their leaderboards do.
Again, our community is so small we should be able to work things out really easily.

Thread: New categories

Started by: colincolin

I see there was new categories added, I don't know who made this decision or when, but I ask that we can please have them removed at least until we have some people running the category.

Empty categories just look very sloppy, and also I really don't like calling a category "Toad%" personally, I understand that you're beating the game with the Toads, but I believe the "%" at the end of a category name should represent the percentage of competition and not just a random name applied to the run.

I don't really like the fact that this was done with absolutely zero discussion, but I am open to discussing this instant change some with whatever responsible parties.

Thread: Category name change

Started by: lolawaylolaway

I completely agree and support this idea, since there are no other glitches used in the game I think it makes much more sense to just title it Glitchless as that's a super clear definition of the category in the name itself.

Thread: Any% Route (2020) - Quick Video Tutorial Run

Started by: colincolin

"This is just a quick explantion on the route we currently use for top times, you can store the ball in pre and skip moon pound going to fortress and then returning both balls to enter moon with a cartwheel clip to enter boss early.

That loses a bit of time (somewhere between 16- 26 sec or something) but ultimately is a lot easier for getting consistent runs as moon clip is basically a hope and pray trick.

Anything else that anyone has questions or anything please feel free to message me, this is by no means a perfect guide, just something quickly put together during stream for people who maybe interested in learning the run."

I dropped some frames, what are you trying to call me a cheater lmao? I still have the raw vod, its actually pretty funny to see this especially since its coming from someone who doesn't run the game and just made their src account 9 days ago... I guess I can upload the vod if its a huge issue, I was planning on beating my time soon when I get a new cap anyways though

EDIT: Also being slightly offended I would like to add that if you had ever watched my stream/past runs/ or my AGDQ run of the game this year you would know I am clearly capable of preforming all the stuff and playing to that level in my PB and have no reason to cheat .

Thread: Any guides how to lvl up skill fast?

Started by: Gornix25Gornix25

Kinda going off of what abra said, you can look up many great things. If you search EHP (Efficient Hours Played) you will find a lot of information on said things, seeing as you didn't state whether or not your question particularly pertains to speedrunning... I will also add that you could look up runs of others and see what they did to effectively get their skill requirements quickly.

On one final note, I will add that most efficient gains are, and have been for awhile now calculated through the use of alts and playing multiple characters at the same time to gain optimal EHP rates.

Thread: Rules

Started by: LattMackeyLattMackey

The guy who has a time on this leader board I am pretty sure has either been inactive for quiet some time, I don't even know if he does anything in terms of Speedrunning anymore, and idk about Jeff's participation on this board truly other than verifying runs honestly.

I have considered running this game, these LB are very off-putting though ofc.

I cannot say for sure but it does seem like DK28 uses turbo for his run, he also absolutely 100% uses VC even though it wasn't uploaded as such. I have searched the comments and his video quiet a bit for answers, and have tried contacting him with no response yet (this was probably about a year ago now) so as far as defining rules go, I would say you should either do it yourself, or we should probably just restart the LB at some point some how because the integrity of the boards atm is so questionable.

We can also try contacting DK again ofc although I am not sure this will result anything other than the same as before.

Personally in this time and age, I would say for runs to be competitive in the speedworld they need to be done single segment, especially due to the large amount of cheating and other stuff involved... I will however congratulate you, and state that ofc my opinion is just an ambiguous one (as is anything in speedgaming) and should ultimately be held to the community of runners.

Still be grats anyways, keep going fast man.

As Silo mentioned I wasn't trying to be rude at all, I was just stating that the LB was split because this would be more relevant in the PC section as people looking to run/fix the PC version would probably look there.

I'm sorry you interpreted my messages as dismissive or rude.

Well as I had said earlier... There is a separate leader board for "Glover (PC)" - (How it actually comes up when you search for Glover in the search bar here on SRC...) and if you check there, Ryguy has a run on it for an example.

That being said, with the cut-scenes being skipped it would invalidate any runs of the game, but I like the effort to try and make it work.
