Dragon Quest V (PS2) Forum  /  Default Category/デフォルトのカテゴリ

I'm not satisfied with the leaderboard I have made, and I would like to hear your opinion regarding:
1. Which category should be default, Any% or Glitchless.
2. Which timing method should be default, NA or JP.
3. If turbo controller should be banned on NA timing or English patched version.

1. Any%(なんでもありRTA)とGlitchless(バグ無し)のどちらがデフォルトで表示されるべきか。
2. 「電源ONからThe End」(JP timing) の計測がデフォルトであるべきか。それとも「New Gameからラスボス戦まで」 (NA timing) か。
3. 連射機はNA timingで禁止されるべきか。また英語パッチでプレイした場合はどうか。

So I set up categories and variables for this leaderboard, mainly in purpose of putting pingval's time (and mine).
I set any% as default like other games do, and I put NA timing because this is speedrun.com, not nico leaderboard. But I don't really like to show my name and my time on the first page of the leaderboard while hiding other runner's time on other categories. I tried putting all variables to misc, but it made the leaderboard meaningless.
In addition, in my opinion, we need variables for timing method, considering how different the routes for any% are. But I'm not quite sure which method should be default. Also I'm not sure about any% and glitchless. It would be better that Glitchless is default because any% is too broken.
Also, I used turbo controller for any% (39:02) but it uses NA timing. Turbo is not required for the any%, so you could argue that turbo should be banned for NA timing. Also it might be better to ban for English patched version, in order to make things fair.
Anyway, I would like to leave these issues to other mods and runners (hoping they will see this post.)
Hope Dragon Quest V will be popular. This is really cool speedgame.

他のゲームと同じように、Any%をデフォルトとして、また一応英語のコミュニティなのでNA timingをデフォルトのカテゴリとしました。しかしこれだと私の記録が最初のページに載ってしまい、他の走者の記録が隠されてしまう状況です。カテゴリを全部その他に分類するのを試してみましたが、全部の記録を上から順位づけしてしまって意味がなくなってしまいました。
私の意見では、タイム計測方法のカテゴリは必要です。Any%(なんでもあり)では、ラスボスを目標にするかThe Endを目標にするかでチャートが大幅に変わってきます。また、Any%はゲームが崩壊しすぎているので、バグ無しのカテゴリがデフォルトのほうがいいかもしれません。


Hi. Thank you for registry my records all the way.
I'm going to give my opinion as a Japanese PS2 DQ5 speedrunner, who isn't familiar with NA rules.

1. I think Any% should be default as it is. Because people might feel this game is tough if Glitchless which takes at least almost 6h is default.
2. I think that there is no problem with NA timing because there is no need to set JP timing as default.
3. How about if you refer to other DQ series speedrun as for turbo? I know only that turbo is unused in DQ7 (DW7) despite that length, though.
I don't know about English Patch well. So I can't say anything about it.

I hope you'll hear various people's opinions.


1. このままAny%がデフォルトでいいと思います。最低でも6時間近く掛かるGlitchlessがデフォルトだとハードルが高く思われてしまいそうなので。
2. デフォルトがJP timingである必然性は特にないと思うので、NA timingで構わないと思います。
3. 連射機の可否は他のDQシリーズのspeedrunを参考にしてみるのはどうでしょうか。自分はDQ7があの長さにも関わらず連射機なしという程度しか知りませんけども。

The rules seem solid for me! I think that the leaderboards look fine as well 😃
