You can choose any category (Skips, No skips, No Items), You just have to beat every track on the fastest difficulty.
Info: All Cups for Double Dash is optional, but DLC tracks/Bonus tracks are required. Just so if anyone wants to start it 🙂

I was planning on doing this type of run sometime when I got 2 more of the games. Do you think we might be able to have a sub category for DLC and no DLC? I was planning on just doing all cups/32 tracks

could you skip over MK8 and do MK8D instead, or all 9 games?

ok to sub categoriew fwm
and you can choose which but it's more consistent to do deluxe, unless your are consistent at firehopping.

Is that really a problem? I mean sure, firehopping isn't the most easy thing but to make a seperate categorie of it? can't you just like in Mario Kart: Super Circuit that you used MK8D or MK8 (Mario Kart: Super Circuit asks if ZZMT is used). I think this gives a more organized overview instead of making a sub-categorie.

Still I like this idea a lot, so I would like to help you if this is starting to take off.

Oké, I just read in one of the sticky threads that someone has to peform the run and set the rules. So if we want this to take off, we should do a run. I can do a run, however, i'm not able to record this, since I do not own a capture card for my consoles nor for the 3DS. I would give the honour to someone else to do the first run.

Whoever it does, I wish you the very best of luck in the first Mario Kart Octathlon 🙂

no seperate category you can do mk8 or mk8 deluxe
original saves 2 minutes, but is hard to do so.

I actually run both games, and you can see how much difference there is between each game.

 
  RacingGamerRacingGamer

I do not own MK8D so I cannot experience the differences myself. However, I think that MK8 is a tiny little bit more rewarding since you had to work really hard for saving 2 minutes.

Hey Hey, I'm preparing a setup to do a Mario Kart Octathlon, so there will be a run in about a month (after holiday started).

Make a Multiple Mario Kart Games leaderboard and put it on that. If you really want it on here, do a run (with video) and either upload it to YouTube or highlight it on Twitch.

Oke Almost everything ready, the only thing left is a way to record. It has been proven dat my phone isn't made for such a long run. Nevertheless I expect to have the run by the end of next week (July 23rd). I hope that you're all ready!!!

I have to apologize. After putting much efford in this, it didn't work out. I did a run, I tried to record the run but all I got after 6 hours 45 minutes and 45 seconds is just a blanc screen. I tested, I did a pre-run to look if all the games we're working and I took the day off. And still I have to disappoint you for not being able to give you today's run. I've splits. I can show the splits. Here's is the link: https://splits.io/1lzj . I'm truly sorry I cannot make my promise true. I will try again in the future, I don't know when. All I can say for now is that I'm truly sorry.

Sidenote: This was a Nitro tracks no skips speedrun, Skips in MKDD such as the waluigi skips and bowser skips were not done during this run

ok, i requested it to speedrun.com, It may take as long as 14 days before this happens.

Did something happen? I ¤may¤ do it this saturday, depending if I get MK7 to run on a Emulator (don't have any Handheld CCs)
However, I wouldn't run MK8 because it's basically the same as MK8D. I would run with Skips (or Shortcuts), normal Item settings and normal CPU. I'll tell you if and when I actually do it.

 
  blueYOSHIblueYOSHI

I tested it a bit now and the 3DS Emulator always crashes on MK7 Rainbow Road, am I still allowed to do a run and just add like 3min to the counter or am I not allowed to do a run then? It would be the only track in all games that doesn't work...

 
  RacingGamerRacingGamer

What happend was that I did a run, but the footage I only got a blanc screen. Why it happend is still unknown. But I really like that you are trying to do a run. I’m not sure that adding 3 min. To your counter is still a valid run but see that after you did the run. I wish you the best of luck

I was planning on doing this a while back and might look into it again, my main problem is I would be emulating SMK and MKSC, then there is the problem of recording DS and MK&, which my solution was to just point my webcam towards it for that part of the run, haha
