Since I have added level difficulty as a variable in IL, runners are now required to show the home screen (where the map is) before starting a level to show the level difficulty.
Sebastian's current runs are allowed to stand.
Thanks!

What about audio? Does it matter if a run doesn't have audio? Should a run be required to have audio?

@EscadeEscade Well I have had no issue with cheating so far, but if you think runs should have audio as proof, that can be done. It is harder to splice a video when there is audio and if done so it can sound inconsistent. If you really want, we can ask the other mods what they think.

Also any particular reason you would like runs to have audio now?

I don't think he's cheating, but T1000Max submitted a run without audio and I just didn't know where we stood on it as a community. I think that it makes sense to have audio in runs, it does make it harder to cheat as well. But so far no issues with cheating so we're all good there. Maybe there's just something wrong on my end to hear the audio, or maybe he didn't mean to have no audio. I just wanted to toss the discussion out there I guess.

Sure, that's fair. It does seem a bit unusual considering all his other runs have audio. However, considering his runs with audio seem legit, and his runs without seem similar to them, I would say he is somewhat of an established runner and honestly would let it slide. However, I do agree that audio certainly would help, if a new runner submitted a run without audio I would be a little concerned.

I also had a question about mobile runs. On mobile, they have that store that allows you to buy things like bombs and extra lives and such. We haven't come across it yet, but do you think the store's powers warrants a big enough change to require separate categories? I'm just thinking for the harder levels if you can freeze enemies or even kill all enemies on the screen with mobile, that would make it a lot easier to speedrun. That's something that web or pc versions doesn't have.

I'm sorry I did not put any sound in my recording. It's just because I sometimes listen to music at the same time and I had a problem with a Hitman 2 recording where YouTube did not want me to post my video because of copyright or something like that so instead I cut the sound with OBS Studio

Oh, no problem with the sound Max, it did bring up an interesting point though.

Concerning IAPs, the usage of those is strictly banned. Unless there's a limit to how many you can have, I don't think it would make sense to allow them even in a separate category as it would come down to just spamming them in the level. Either way, nobody has really tried running with them anyway.
