I could do it. I've had a little bit of experience with GM.

SDA is strange.

And yeah, that's what I expected. Thanks.

Oh right, you're talking about 100%. I don't really have any experience in 100%, though I plan to do it after I'm finished with any% no oob.

Offtopic, but do you think it would be worth it to recompile the game with some additional stuff, like a reset button, live timer, practice mode to warp between areas (looking at you caves section) etc? The source code (gamemaker project) was released with the actual game.

Also how on earth you got a 4:23 with 3 unintentional deaths and no death abuse? The 4:25 has kinda mediocre movement (barely any momentum conservation) but it's still a VERY good run.

That being said, it seems to be VERY possible. I found a 100% TAS of this game (no TAS exists for any other categories tho):

It's a 3:52. Note that the strat at 2:46 is wrong, you can collect the cat from underneath, which is obviously faster. I don't expect an RTA sub 4 anytime soon, but nice to know that it's possible.
This TAS shows all the death abuse that you need. The most important death abuse scenarios are pretty intuitive to use in a run, but there are a few other small ones that could shave off a couple seconds too. There's also a couple minor route changes at the start.

Edit: Just saw the new WR. Solid run! I thought by "3 deaths" you were talking about unintentional deaths. You got the 3 major unintentional deaths, there were 1 or 2 more "big" ones which wouldn't save too much time. Shame on that intentional death where you missed the cat.

You seem to have used the optimal route too. Very nice.

Hmm. I find lava death abuse quite reliable, at least at the 1st lava section. I could make a video on it, the timings are pretty simple for most of them. I'm still not too consistent with the death abuse towards the end, though. I'll have to practice that (and caves section 😛 ).

What's your problem with OBS? I know if I use game capture it doesn't start capturing the game immediately, so I use window capture. Window capture doesn't seem to refresh if you don't have the right settings though- I use window capture with "Executable Name" checked in the settings. Or are you having some other problem?

100% doesn't require no deaths. That's just a weird SDA thing I think.

Wait- there's a discord server for the players page?
And a general mario kart speedrunning server?

Can I have the links please? I didn't even know they existed!

Y'know what, people have been asking for it for months (also I really want somewhere to chat about MKDS outside of the player's page yahoo group)

So I made it. Nothing there yet, but I'll put in more channels, etc.

Also, sorry if the mods were planning on making one themselves. I'll give you admin access if you want.

Please make this. I want to get started running this game. Some quick answers would be nice.

I prefer discord, but skype is fine.

I have an update on this. I just did it again in another location. I wasn't recording, but I'll start now. I think it may be similar, if not the same, glitch that's used in the any% SDA run, to skip half of factory.

Edit: Got it again in the original spot. It appears that you need to have full speed in either direction for it to work. If this is true, this being an RTA viable skip is unlikely.

Edit 2: Appears to be exactly the same as factory skip. I'll work on this more. Recorded a couple more skips, including one where I actually fell through to jungle.

Started by: cros107cros107

In this run, the runner goes through a roof in factory to save time. I assume this counts as out of bounds, right? Just wanted to clarify with the mods.

Ok. So I was in the overworld, mashing jump while holding up (which is just what I do in the overworld), in the corner of the screen, transitioning to the next room, when I died, and in the room that I was going into. I don't know if this only occurs in that one spot, but this could become an interesting timesave for OOB%, possibly skipping half the overworld if my assumptions are correct. I'll post a video if I have to.

Edit: Decided to just post the video. Here it is:

Also, a bit off topic, but I found some consistent setups for death abuse, especially in lava caves 1.

Well you can just press start in the menu to access the last game you played. But yeah, just thinking about doing some casual 16/70 star runs.

So yeah. Have a PAL n64 with an everdrive, are the runs on there legit? Reset time is longer , obviously, and it runs at an accurate speed (as far as I know).

I read somewhere that there was a skype group but I have NO idea where that is. And discord is better for large groups anyway.

Why not? There are quite a few speedrunning communities that have their respective discord channels, so why not? Plus this game has a LOT of runners, so it would be better than to just use the forums, which are dead anyway. Thoughts?
