Thread: Which emulators are allowed?

Started by: phénixcrowphénixcrow

i would prefer if you would use fceu, nestopia or bizhawk. there are tons of other emulators out there and we can't test all of them

Thread: "Free" Coin Option Allowed?

Started by: EthanRTAEthanRTA

i've never played a real vs super mario arcade but i think it's possible to do, they're supposed to have switches to set the different time speed etc, and also it's not a giant advantage so i don't see a problem

Thread: What kind of wrong Warp is this

Started by: codyy9codyy9

i think you can get weird wrong warps if you go down the pipe while the camera is moving, i think i've seen someone in smb1 go through the wall at the end of 1-2 and go down the first pipe before the "welcome to warp zone" was loaded and the camera was still moving and he wrong warped to a version of 1-1 with plants coming out of the pipes (normally there aren't any plants coming out of the pipes in 1-1). also as far as i know you need to clip inside the wall to do this WW(the one that goes to the warpzone faster) as small mario in 4-2 in VS smb because mario needs to be WAYYYYYY more to the right of the screen, i think under the "I" in "TIME" from what i remember. unless something else is discovered

ok i changed "nes" into fds. as for the year i don't think we can 100% confirm the year, it was on the back of some lost level disks. most of the information i could find on tonkachi mario was on youtube and stuff like that. should i change the year too?

Thread: 2 questions

Started by: OzziemaneOzziemane

switch is allowed, the only thing banned so far is alternate fast in-game timer, and we could possibly add individual levels, i'll talk to some people first and see what they think

Thread: Slow vs Fast Timer

Started by: AnnoraxAnnorax

hmm the faster timer makes the run faster in general because at the end of the level it'll drop to "000" faster and you save 1 frame for each in-game seconds less, not sure about fireworks but the "000" thing i just mentioned is more important

Thread: How is RT_1's warpless run got verified

Started by: 44

my bad, i wasn't really paying attention and i didn't think it would hurt that much because there's only 3 people on the leaderboard and his time wasn't competitive. i'll take it down in case more people do the same thing, sorry for inconveniences

Thread: another really dumb question

Started by: NolmyNolmy

should be fine as long as the in game timer isn't super fast, i already put the in game times you should be able to get while going down the first pipe of 1-1 in the rules

Thread: Time savers for a newbie

Started by: slenderfury3slenderfury3

i'm really sorry for the super slow response guys, i didn't notice this thread. on my warpless PB i did much safer strat than my any% PB, for example on 6-3 i wait on every single bullet bill before i keep going instead of doing what some people call russian roulette which is what i did in my any% PB. to be safer basically i wait on the bullet bill and look at where it is before continuing. on 6-1 if you do a full jump from the first "?" block it'll confuse the lakitu's AI and he won't drop any spinies before you pass him if you keep running. on 3-3 you must avoid stomping or shooting the last 2 red flying koopas, otherwise you might despawn the elevator needed to reach the end of the level. on 7-2 if there's a blooper blocking your way i recommend luring the blooper in the wrong direction to give you space to get passed him. also i highly recommend fire mario strats, small mario doesn't have any speed or ease advantage even in any% because you have to get passed 2 extra bowsers compared to smb1 any% and you save about 2 seconds on each bowsers if you killed them with fire balls which makes up for the time it took to collect the powerups. this is my warpless PB if you wanna see some safer strats compared to any%

Thread: Switch Version out

Started by: xxezrabxxxxxezrabxxx

@barnowl are you sure? i remember asking Kosmic to do some tests and from what i remember the slowest speed matched the slowest arcade speed and the fastest switch speed matched the fastest arcade speed (excluding the alternate fast speed on that home edition rom hack thing)

I mean I'd say yes I think it's allowed

Thread: NES Classic

Started by: GhostSenpaiGhostSenpai

I'd say yes. It's allowed for smb1 and it doesn't give you any advantage, you may get a slight time disadvantage because lower framerate, but it's basically like virtual console so I don't see why not, but I'm not a mod so to be 100% sure maybe you should wait for an answer from a mod

You can submit runs from any platform pretty much. The only thing banned so far is "alternate fast" in game speed
