Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Forum  /  I want to add a new category

Hello,

There is only "Glitched" category in JP version for now. But "Glitchless" and "true end" are also well played in Japan. Because DQ8 speedrunner was much increased, I thought the list to handle these records should be prepared here.
It would be appreciated if you could add a category of glitchless at least. In that case, I will be happy to translate the common rules of glitchless in Japan.
Thank you.

Hi, I apologize for the late reply. I have added categories for Japanese Glitchless and Japanese True Ending Glitchless. If you could provide translated rules, that would be great. Should ending credits be timed or not?

Hello, thank you additional categories.
Due to changes in the Dragon Quest guidelines, the Japanese version of Speedrun no longer measures credit time.

Thank you for your reply. As Ann_panさん mentioned, we cannot broadcast ending credits. For now, Japanese speedrunner stop timer when 「暗黒神ラプソーンを やっつけた!」is appeared. We have discussed but the timing may be determined as described above.
In regard to rules in Japanese version, we allow some tricks, especially,
・Buy two Yggdrasil Leaf using Alchemy Pot
・Get Yellow Orb in advance
these are not regarded as glitch, so all player use them when playing glitchless regulation.
It would be grateful if you could add these sentences. (I am sorry for my poor English, would you modify please...?)
Just out of interest, is yellow orb available before collapsing dark citadel in foreign version? I am not familiar with English one. XD

Thank you. I updated the rules. If you would like to make any more changes, please let me know.
I am not familiar enough with the game to know about the yellow orb, so I posted your message in the Discord DQ8 channel.
