I am performing and will post my run on Sunday due to work on the weekdays along with the practice run on the Xbox One since this game is backwards capable to it. Also I tried the glitches that was shown on the WR on the Xbox One but does not work. Will it be okay if I post a run glitchless? Again I will post my run on Sunday for sure just need to practice on the weekday even with my job and all.

glitchless is perfectly fine for submission. I'm not that familiar with the console versions but i know aleck47 managed to perform them in a slightly different way on xbox 360 so they should in theory work on xbox one

Will it be submitted as a different category or be the same for any% even though I'm performing a Glitchless run.

I don't know if the xbone version will behave like the xbox/360 version, but if so the main detriment will be that you can't crouch and uncrouch to get past a ceiling. Zips may also be slightly different. My advice is to try everything in the PC run, see how feasible it is, and proceed accordingly. If you want to run glitchless that's fine. I personally would prefer "no glitch abuse" or "no major skips" but categories are something we can debate further when we have a better idea of what is possible from one version to another.

I have tried all locations that was shown on all runs and none of them work. Maybe there can be a separate category for console, even though it works on the 360 and other consoles. But that's my opinion.

if you're looking for some ideas, there's this old single segment run of mass effect by your_name_here which is basically glitchless.

Should I still submit my run on any%?

Update: After looking at the video the route is great but most of the strat does not work on Xbox One as well. When performing them, I get a non-prog of Shepard going into a T-Stance on Feros when skipping the cutscene where the geth dreadnaught appears.

yeah just submit under any%, there's technically already one glitchless (NG+) run on the leaderboards as well.

Sorry for the bump, but just wanting to point out that some skips are possible on the X360 version. I definitely achieved the Citadel Tower to Choras Den skip. I was able to get out of bounds using the crouch save method on the Presidium but was unable to find the Normandy so some things may be different. I would love if there were more people looking into this for running though.

I completely missed this and I'm probably the one who has done the most work with glitches on the console version of the game. What I said about crouching and uncrouching isn't the complete story. You can essentially gravity clip through nonexistent floors, but you have to save and load to do so. That means you are guaranteed to fall a minimum distance after doing so, which is too far for some skips. For falling into the Normandy, for example, you have to fall directly into an area as it loads, and not get stuck on the ceiling above the main deck. It also means the Peak (whatever number it is) skip is all but impossible because you have to basically fall exactly in between the glass things above the tram - I got it once in about an hour of attempts. Fortunately, a fair number of skips still work, including the one that gets you to Chora's Den, because the first save/load you have to do in addition to what the PC version requires is followed by a long fall, and the other has a real floor right under it.

Has anyone done a glitchless insanity run?
