Thread: Which character and kart for TT

Started by: OBSIDIAUSOBSIDIAUS

In my experience poltergust isn't that great to use as a beginner. Or at least I never found it beneficial when I tried it. You're better off using egg and db for most tracks and bls for tracks like f8c and yf.

It really depends on the track, your skill level and what you're trying to accomplish tbh, db is good for tight turns, offroad and easy prb, but is slow overall, egg is a bit faster but slightly worse offroad and takes turns a bit wider, also easy to prb with though, BLS is really fast but hard to use well (incredibly hard to prb, don't even bother until you git gud), and polt is somewhere in between egg and BLS. Some tracks use different karts as well, particularly for flaps, but those 4 are the big ones.

Oh also new any% no OOB strat at 17:40, it's really hard, especially if you have to do it deathless, but I think it's slightly faster. Probably not worth doing till like 2:34 lol

Yep, it's been done. This is what happens when I get bored of main categories. Sub 10 is possible, sub 5 is the dream. (not 100% sure if it'll be humanly possible but it'll be very insane to get)

I don't think that's even faster, you have to slow down anyway to get above the next one and by the time you've done that it's lost about as much time as waiting at the start. I've gone underneath a couple of times and I always seem to go past the 2nd thing at around the same height.

Oh also, it's possible to get underneath the pillar with the 2 fire bars on the right of the thumbnail with a pixel perfect-ish entry and frame perfect mashing. I've made it around 75% of the way past it but it's incredibly hard, probably not possible RTA.

Might as well post this here, thought it was pretty cool. Realised it was possible after rewatching the 100% TAS.

Thread: GG to mods that verify

Started by: DarpeyDarpey

"I understand it's frustrating for a lot of people waiting on their runs to be verified, but also you need to understand that this site isn't that great. Have any of you seen that "under pressure" message? Whenever any of us mods try to go in the queue to verify runs, it takes a long time to load, or flatout gives us an error message. To be honest, it's very frustrating because we know we have a lot of runs in the queue and we try to get to them. If the site ran smoother, we wouldn't have this issue"

This is such a shitty excuse, I experience problems with this site probably less that 1/50 times I visit it. It's nowhere near as bad as people say it is. I'm well aware that mods do stuff behind the scenes but I seriously doubt all the time they have for mod stuff is going towards discussing rule changes for the 5 categories on this leaderboard or discussing different methods of verification.

Started by: Max28Max28

If we switch to IGT we can just keep the times with insufficient proof as RTA, which is fine because the load times of the RTA are automatically used as a penalty for not having proof.

given that you're going directly over a massive invisible wall and skipping a pretty large portion of the track I assume almost everyone would agree it's a glitch

@JustinBailey it might've been a long time since you've played the game... DB vs Egg isn't really a thing anymore, to my knowledge all world records use egg, polt or bls, apart from a couple tracks which use LGS. Dry bomber is slow and despite being easy to PRB with, pros can just as easily do it with egg.

Edit: nevermind dry bomber is used on a few tracks where its handling is important. There's not much reason to use it in a fullgame run though.

If you can't beat 6 seconds it's 100% physically impossible you got 0.1 seconds. Pretty sure your phone just lagged out REALLY hard in just the right place to get you that run.

Underneath the last overworld room, isn't there a jungle room? I might be wrong but I thought I remember there being one.

Edit: Wait- I think I just fell along the seam of the last 2nd layer room. The room to the right might be empty.

I can't remember which room it was tbh, since the last time I got it was my last grind, 7 months ago (possibly even before that) and it might not have actually been jungle, just one of the underground cat village rooms on the way to jungle.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I think there's only one second-layer jungle room, that being the one directly under the final room in the overworld.

How are they broken? Double jump is just an upgrade that
1. Speeds up the game drastically, especially in high score runs
2. Rasises the skill ceiling a lot

I don't see any reason for the change from what the leaderboards used to be, but whatever.

I think cap cards are around $100 if you solder them yourself, but you gotta have experience. Anyway if you have a phone or webcam just point it at the screen.
