Metroid Fusion Forum  /  Crack down on video proof!

We are taking it dead serious when it comes to runs that are sub 50 in game time for any% and sub 1:10 in game time for 100%.

From now on if your run meets that criteria you will be required to provide a video of the whole run from start to finish with out dying or reloading a save, Otherwise you will be rejected, Simple as that.
On top of that all 1% runs need video proof regardless of time.

Why we are doing this? It's because of how easy it is to fake a time on the end screen such as doing a segmented run or using a cheat device (for example ).

In short, Please provide video of the whole run if your run is sub 50 IGT for any% and sub 1:10 for 100% and all 1% runs need video proof.

We hope you understand this and not think we are being harsh.

Also the runs that don't currently have video under those in game times are legacy times, times we know are legit.


JRP since when did you become the Fusion police?

dang.. i need video proof of my 1:10


do we need video proof for segmented runs at all? and will 1% become obsolete now because of the new "easier" 0% strat?


I think segmented runs can be considered on a case by case basis since there are so few of them. Personally I would only need proof if the time was super low.

1% is technically obsolete but it will still exist as a category. People can run whatever they want!


I just did a 2:20 100% with the GBA version in my DS but haven't submitted it yet, would I need a video or could I use a picture I took with my phone of the end screen? (I'm new to this stuff)


We don't require proof for runs in that range, since it is not on emulator

I use the MyBoy! emulator on my phone and use a Bluetooth gamepad. I read over the submission rules and forgive my lack of understanding, wondering if would I be able to submit any runs with the setup that I use? Or do I need to use BizHawk to submit a run that uses an emulator?


Yes, BizHawk is the only emulator allowed due to its accuracy
