Having several delayed speedruns pending is an asbolute disgrace to the website and speedrunning community. Shame on you guys!

Hello, THPS4 community!
I recently completed a speedrun of this game but it's the GBA version. If you don't mind pointing me in the general vicinity of where I submit my run that would be fantastic!

Started by: WastelandwalkerWastelandwalker

Of course, my friend. Working with you has been nothing less than a pleasure.

Similarly to other Bloons games, timing should start upon "Play Game" after difficulty selection. Runners should not be able to set up towers before the run starts.

Hopefully this clears the air and this message finds your family safe and well. Cheers!

Ladies and gentlemen; boys and girls and fans alike of Bloons TD for select PSN consoles --

Please give a warm welcoming to our new addition of the moderation team: @JumpyluffJumpyluff!

JumpyLuff is a world re-nowned Bloons Tower Defense player and has acquired extensive knowledge of the Bloons franchise through well over a decade of competitve video gaming. If you are at home reading this forum post, it means that JumpyLuff has superior knowledge (and probably skill) than you do!

He does hands down great work of curating leaderboards for the speedrunning cult. I have gave him the duty of taking the community's suggestions and am forcing him to implement his thoughts of how this should all pan out in the near future. He really doesn't have a choice by now, so he must create spectacular work for the sake of the Bloons TD fanbase.

I have full confidence our new moderator will help guide this community in a smooth direction for many minutes to come.

Thread: which are the requirements for any%?

Started by: andresfgp13andresfgp13

I apologize that the rules have not been clarified yet for this category. That is correct -- each of the levels must be completed for an Any% run.

Thread: Suggestions for cover art

Started by: f1f1

I am trying to come up with what would be a good image to display as the cover for this game. The image should be similar to these:

I don't think the title screen would be any fun. I've considered a monkey character sprite. I'm not sure if that would make sense though since it does not read the title of the game. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know!

Are you able to upload the mod for the game in the resources tab to make in accessible for everyone?

Thread: Leaderboard categories

Started by: YaBoiJSmithYaBoiJSmith

I think having different class challenges for speedruns in this game would be a great idea. It's hard to imagine how that would look like though, or how many there would be given the several combinations.

But rather than trying to conjure up which categories COULD be ran for this game, I encourage everyone to play the game that is fun or produces a challenge or unique style of gameplay. Creativity for speedruns doesn't come from trying to type up possibilites on a web forum. There shouldn't need to be a list telling you what you can and cannot speedrun.

New categories for games are very easy to add if there are players interested in actually running them! But having too many (especially empty) leaderboards for a single game can become convoluted and overwhelm new players for the community.

Thread: Revive Bug

Started by: SlowCookerSlowCooker

Death abusing could potentially be quicker for accomplishing the objective of the game. In general, exploits of glitches and/or bugs are allowed for Any% categories. If this particular bug becomes a strategy where it polarizes the runs in a given category, the orginal category would be renamed to be descriptive of the restriction that is not allowed in a run.
Any% will almost always be the category that accomplishes the objective of the game quickest.

I, for one, do not believe this should be allowed. All runs should start the same for everyone at the difficulty selection, and menuing should be part of the timed run.
Let me know if and why you disagree with this sentiment and we can further discuss.

Thread: Hello!

This is a good question. Initially, I thought it should have been when we gain control of the monkey after the difficulty selection. However, it may be easier for the runners to start it at the difficulty selection. Re-timing the runs is not a problem for the mod team whichever timing method we settle on!

It's very easy for me to retime all the runs on this webpage if the users can agree which timing method would be more ideal to run with.

This would make it easier for users to be able to time their speedruns. Usually the standard is upon gaing control but perhaps a couple seconds difference is worth it to make it easier for the runner to simultaneously user their timer.

This is a fantastic idea! This is a brand new page in the works and I am still learning about the fangame.

I'm planning to incorporate at least sub-categories for each difficulty right now. And later if the majority of runners choose to run one difficulty instead -- the difficulties will become variables for each category.

@starsmileystarsmiley To clarify, are we able to remove the "Webgame" tag from Bloons Tower Defense so it is displayed as an official release on the series page?

Can a "Fangame" tag be added to this game for the Bloons series? There has been unprecedented demand for a leaderboard of this game despite not being an official release. Thanks!

Updated the rules to make them more clear, timed all runs to the frame, and fixed the background theme and trophies for the game. I hope you find the page better as well.

For some reason your change messed with the series' background and doesn't take up the whole screen anymore
