Brandonjja and Carter44 had a multiplayer run verified and got second place. Not sure if there is a different country’s version of NSMBWII that has faster loading zones, but this run definitely has does have faster loading zones than I do. Can anyone tell me if the run is actually legit or not?

on 1-1 the loading time was about 2 seconds, and my loading screen for 1-1 was about 3.2 seconds. The video doesnt seem to be sped up, because there is a slowly moving scene at the top during the loading screen that you can go by (when i say loading screens, im talking about when it shows marios lives before the level starts)

WutFace this loading time for each level

Yeah, the video does not look right. It looks like it's spliced. What I don't understand is why they would splice a time that isn't even that good.

Load times being different could also mean the run was done on an emulator.

True, maybe they didn't realize Emulator was banned.

I dont think its spliced since it would be stupid to splice a bad time on category that is not popular.

Even if the category is not popular, rules are rules. Idk if it's an emulator run but it's really suspicious.

@Carter44 and @Brandonjja yeah that load time is really fast tho.

Way too fast imo. Someone compare their loading time to one of the TASes. That’ll determine if it’s in an emulator or not.

Loading times are like double speed i swear!

@Smajet people can splice even the worst of runs.

Download the video and take out the audio to see if it's spliced.
Also, emulator has slower loads, so it might be VC

Dolphin emulator has slower load times i think and so does vc so i'll download it.

The video seems to low quality for it to be recorded on an emulator like dolphin. Maybe it's low quality on purpose to hide the splices in the run or the video lag is making the load times look faster (which is highly unlikely). Maybe it's low quality because of the wii's graphics and if it where on a emulator it would most likely be recorded with obs.

maybe his Wii is just faulty and so his load times are faster or something? like it has a better hard drive.

 
  DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA

That doesn’t make any sense. Why would a faulty Wii have better load times? Also, if it has a better hard drive it would probably be an aftermarket one, which would be a modification, which would be cheating.

Well i guess i should clear this up. The 30:10 run brandonjja and I did a few months back was done on brandonjja's modded wii and not played on an official disk. We were not aware of the discrepancies between the version we were playing on and the official disk. I took the run down but it is still up on my channel if anyone would like to see it. My own solo runs are done on an official disk and if brandonjja and I ever do another co-op we will be sure to play on the official disk going forward. We're sorry for wasting everyones time and promise that things like this won't happen in the future
