(edited: )

I have updated the rules for Dragon Warrior 3 (GBC). The goal of this update was not to change any rules, but to properly define what already is and is not allowed.

The other piece was to put in place rules for emulated runs of the game. I borrowed these from the GBRunners Website here: http:/​/​gbrunners.​com/​game-boy-speedrunning-explained

Here is an overview of the rules:

• Video is required for all submissions. If you use Twitch, make a highlight of your video for submission.
• Banned Emulators: VBA and RetroArch, see details here: http:/​/​gbrunners.​com/​game-boy-speedrunning-explained
• Emulator specific functionality is banned (e.g. save states, binding multiple keys, Run-Ahead, RAM Watch, etc...).


• Turbo is banned.
• Timing starts on selection of "New Game".
• Timing ends when the game sound goes silent on the “TO BE CONTINUED IN DRAGON WARRIOR I+II” screen after the credits.


Along with this, I have also added options for the different platforms to run the game:
• Gameboy Color
• Gameboy Player (Gamecube)
• Gameboy Interface (Custom Gameboy Player Software)

If there is anything that I missed or if you have questions, please post in this thread. I will edit this post with any rule updates.
