Thread: Regarding ILs and why they were removed

Started by: ArtismScrubArtismScrub

Problem is, in some levels there would be hundreds of tied worlds records, and it doesn't really show much in terms of skill. It's almost the same as in SMB1, where you can hold run button from the start, and get the same time as hundred other people. Another thing, it'd be a nightmare to moderate, since there are over 70 levels, where each and every one of them will have to get his own leaderboard, not mentioning the Small Only, No Cape and Lunar Dragon variants.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection is valid, no matter on which device you are playing it.

Thread: Resetting

Started by: darGdarG

If you're about to run this game, please read this post carefully, it'll save us (moderators) time, when verifying your future runs.

We start the timing on the frame you select one of the 2 possible languages on title screen, HOWEVER if you die during the gameplay, game will show you different text screens before the main one ( https://imgur.com/7IC32e8 ). Because there are less screens when you die instead of reset (2 instead of 3) we need to adjust the timing by adding ~3.4 seconds to the final time. Although it seems easy to do, sometimes the time will get close to being flat (for example 35.999), but because of different framerates someone could actually be 1 second off his real PB because of this, since we don't use miliseconds. That is of course very hipotetic and not likely to happen case, but nevertheless we don't want to experience it.

TL;DR: Just use reset function in your emulator, when you possibly can.

@RoyLTRoyLT But what about when someone plays with arrows and Z and X or D and F? In that case it would've been impossible to beat the game OneHanded without remapping the controls.

@TaruDuckTaruDuck I agree, no one would actually submit a run from like year <1900, but someone could still mess with it and discover that glitch (like me).

Thread: 8-1 - odd spawn/despawn behavior

Started by: beardylocksbeardylocks

When you were doing pipe jumps, I noticed you tapped left, just to make sure to not die to the Piranha Plant, that's the reason why 3rd koopa despawned. I guess because you slowed down, some of the enemies are appearing later, some earlier and the sprite limit is changing which enemy to despawn because of that little difference in timing.

Thread: Safer way to save the 8-3 framerule fpgless

Started by: wrboismbswrboismbs

@eddiecatgamingeddiecatgaming Well if you have a good pace, nerves can sometimes make you jump earlier, resulting in a lost framerule, or don't jump at all, you know how it is. Honestly I've never experienced it, but I hope I never will.

Thread: Another really good potential for a new category in the future

Started by: wrboismbswrboismbs

IMO another useless category idea. Unintuitive, hard for beginners, nightmare for moderators. I'd say it's only viable in form of a single challenge, but even then it's ridiculously hard.

Thread: Separate Regions

Started by: wrboismbswrboismbs

Then you would also need to create sub-categories for Wii VC, WiiU VC, NESClassic, because they all have different framerates.

After all, who would run this game on PAL version knowing it's the slowest one? Probably someone who owns a PAL NES and doesn't have a strong enough computer to record runs on emulator, but we have 2020, you can use pretty much everything to record your runs. We have plenty of emulators, newer and older ones. You can download and setup NTSC SMB1 in few minutes, if you know how to use brain. All I want to say is that PAL version of SMB1 is useless (except for Softlock).

Also what about Minus World Ending? What about SNES All-Stars version? Would these categories be exceptions?

Creating PAL sub-category would only give moderators more work to do, and believe me, you don't want that.

Thread: stupid question

Started by: Shark_Eat_FishShark_Eat_Fish

There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.

Honestly I'd doubt that, since mavpole is less consistent than normal FPG setup, so the only time someone would actually do that is 8-1 or some shenanigans in 1-1/4-1. Therefore, I don't think so, at least not in the past year or two.

Thread: PAL version

Started by: mugg1991mugg1991

"That version of the game runs very slightly faster than the American version." - you really need to change your information source. PAL version is slower, since it runs at ~50 FPS, while NTSC runs at ~60 FPS. If you want to learn about the "PAL vs NTSC" case, read this: http:/​/​tasvideos.​org/​5617S.​html

There is a "STAGEO Warpless" category, maybe that's what you remembered?

Also I would move MWE, All-Stars Any% and All-Stars Warpless to main instead of misc. categories.

Honestly only categories that should be added to the main board are Glitchless and MAYBE Both Quests and ★8-4. I agree with @SaradocSaradoc, that Co-op isn't really an option for many people. I see Second Quest somewhere in between - it's still kind of competitive, but if someone already got 457/456 then Top 3 is basically free, with a small changes to current route. Everything else seems like a step in a right direction.
