@Quivico Oh my goodness thank you so much.

Being able to 'right click > Open link in new tab' runs on the "awaiting verification" page would remove a ton of wasted time. (Sorry if this has already been mentioned, I'm far too lazy to read through the 50+ pages of this!)

I timed the page opening 3 times and I got:

16.81, 10.93,12.04 (just using livesplit, not very accurate obviously)

Which averages out to around 13 seconds to load the page every time. If you have a large list of runs to approve, loading the page after every approval gets pretty tiring. If we could load the runs in a new tab, that would take away the wait every time by keeping the page open all the time.

Thank you for potential consideration!

Thread: SMBMAST3R's 4:57.560

Started by: eddiecatgamingeddiecatgaming

You can't tell whether or not he got lag frame from the video because it's only 30 fps and dropped the frame if it existed. SMBMAST3R says they got lag frame it's probably right to believe them as it's just honesty to make their time more accurate for the leaderboard.

If SMBMAST3R can confirm that they did or did not get lag frame, we can change it. As of right now though we're going to stick to their words on the submission, "I got lag frame on BBG which wasted a frame but the 8-4 was absolutely insane!"

Thread: Weegee14's 4:59.880

Started by: eddiecatgamingeddiecatgaming

The WiiVC framerate is 59.824.

The final time is 17940, which = 299.87964696442899170901310510832 (at WiiVC framerate)

That gets rounded to 4:59.880.

Also, I said in the run description what the run time would've been with NES framerate, and what pattern it was on the spreadsheet.

Thread: Best controller for emu

Started by: cornycowscornycows

I know the buffalo SNES controller is a popular option: https://www.amazon.com/BUFFALO-2145487-Classic-USB-Gamepad/dp/B002B9XB0E

What I use when I use EMU though is any of the controllers from 8bitdo, their controllers (especially the snes one) are very high quality, very highly recommended: http://www.8bitdo.com/

Thread: 4-2 top wall clip

Definitely not harder than 1-2 clip. I've done it for a while now and have gotten at least 30+ fast 4-2s out of it.

Thread: Milliseconds

Started by: burgerlands2burgerlands2

Sorry, issue fixed after I was notified.

After doing a ton of these I mix up cutoffs in certain games and categories, thus I thought the cutoff was 5:05 instead of 5:03.

Again, sorry, and the issue has been fixed.

If darbian were doing attempts offline and got a PB, then no, we wouldn't accept it. Sure he's trustworthy but the rule at hand isn't only for specific people. I have gotten a PB offline (4:58.691) and it wasn't accepted because of that.

This just means you touched the pole a pixel or 2 too high, disappointing outcome and loses time sadly. 🙁

Just to add on to what nickj said, the only difference is that L+R does not work on the GBA version. The NES TAS that was ported was the RTA rules tas by happylee. The movie for which you can view here:

Well if anything the former WR is also timed wrong so you still have WR SeemsGood

Thread: Most people are timing runs wrong?

Started by: mav6771mav6771

A few runs on here I've seen have the timers incorrect.

They're showing "Seconds; Frames", instead of "Seconds; Milliseconds"

So a time (The WR for example) 47;19, is 47 seconds and 19 frames. 19 / 30 is 0.633, so the record is actually 47.633.

Just a quick note as I've already seen 3 runs incorrectly timed.

Strange issue going on with a run that needs to be verified.

This is his time on the leaderboard:

He has a run up for verification that is faster, yet on the verification screen it says obsolete:

So we're not really sure if we should verify it or not.

Thank you for the work on the site Pac 🙂
