Or, do whatever you find fun and don't let others bully you into playing what they want you to play because they perceive it to be superior. Especially if they call it 'the big boy league'.

If you find it fun, go for it! There are a few runners that already do one-handed NMG, for which there's a leaderboard over on Category Extensions: https://www.speedrun.com/alttpce#Any_NMG_One-Handed

@EmmJaeEmmJae correct, this version of the route is very simple and anyone under the sun can do it. It's not a very rewarding speedrun, but a neat party trick.

The version of the clips deagle posted along with the route here [ https:/​/​alttp-wiki.​net/​index.​php/​Any​%25 ] is the optimal version of the route and something we look forward to seeing the submission queue. The jump s+q version, not so much.

Best of luck @RNGStreamsRNGStreams!

We do not allow runs to be submitted by 3rd parties. Also, this run does not meet our rules and guidelines for the category.

This is a known issue with how the categories and sub-categories are organized on the boards and pulled via the API through LiveSplit.

Your best bet, if you really want to show this, is to just add a Text field (Layout Editor -> + -> Information -> Text).

Thread: Why no glitchless category?

Started by: Dj5272Dj5272

^ this is mostly true, but to clarify:

A spindash is pressing a button the frame after releasing another button.

It's also somewhat difficult to define what is truly a "glitch" in this game and what is just abuse of game mechanics. Some of these glitches are version-specific, but some are not. Generally, these minor glitches do not sequence break the game in a significant enough way to consider banning them for the main category. However...

There's nothing preventing anyone from running a truly glitchless version if they so desire. Its lack of presence on these leaderboards has no bearing on what runners can/can't do. If there's enough interest in a category with a clear goal and definition, and enough people start running it, more than likely a leaderboard would be created for it.

There are no existing tutorials for the entire route, but there are a few resources:

Blank has a number of videos on his youtube channel that are helpful, namely:

Here's a doc with the route: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HZGpb5prw131uMz2FxJxUmtvyfQvDDafVQyv5rG-m6E/pubhtml?gid=1469878830&single=true

superSKUJ also has several videos which cover a variety of glitches used throughout the run: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPsUbwi58oG_hjrgq1wpYmM3JMEn9b8R8

Apart from that, I would just advise watching some of the top runs on the leaderboard.

Hope this helps!

If you think it's absolutely the controller and you're looking for a different one, http://amzn.to/2vcF6lq (iBuffalo) is what a lot of emulator users go with. Another option is a USB SNES adapter with an original controller.

Hey Cook -- ZSNES and SNES9x 1.43 and below are banned, so anything not those will work: including, but not limited to bsnes/higan, snes9x 1.51 or 1.53, and snesgt.
