Attention we have decided to start putting forward new emulation rules for each of the categories, similar to how we have done for Any% for quite some time.
These are the new lowest emulation times allowed on the leaderboard. (As of 12/30/21)
Now there's another category not present on this list and that is the All Time Trials Category. Upon discussion we have decided to ban emulators for this category. All Time trials is an IGT oriented category, therefore the emulation's unoptimized frame rate could give players advantages at no cost of real time.
One more thing, it was always a gray area. We are officially regarding loaders such as Nintendont, and dios mios, etc. as emulators, thus they will follow those emulation guidelines. Reason being is that some things like dios mios alter the bios the runs the gamecube discs on wiis. Thus even if you have dios mios installed and run the game on disc it will still be invalid, due to the altered bios affecting the game. Now for things like nintendont, the concern is now more storage devices. Flash storage tends to be faster than standard discs, and with so many different kinds it creates this imbalance that we dont have efficient means to deal with. While the game isnt available to download, pretty much all versions of the game are relatively easily obtainable. If a different solution arises, we will re discuss it. As well as keep in mind this doesn't only go to the wii. For now, all forms of booting the console version in a similar way are following those emulation guidelines. As well as they apply to all regions of the game as well.
Thank you for reading, and if there are any more questions feel free to ask.
