Nabbit already has IL's. This thread should be locked if it's asking for something that already exists.

If you want a Nabbit 100% full game category, then feel free to get the "Adventure Mode complete" textbox as Nabbit. that's the agreed upon finish time for not just this game, but The New Super Mario Bros. franchise as a whole when it comes to 100%.

You don't get 100% by just collecting all the Star Coins. You also have to catch all the Nabbits that stole P-Acorns, and time doesn't end until you get a text box saying you completed all of Adventure Mode. That text box won't appear if any levels were completed with only Nabbit.

To reiterate an earlier post, the only reason that Nabbit appears in the 100% section is because of formatting limitations on Speedrun.com. If it could be removed without removed the Nabbit categories in All Castles or Any%, then it would be gone. As is, it exists solely so Nabbit runs can exist for other categories.

Basically a GP Any% run, BTB to Hyrule Castle, then BIL to the sanctum instead of getting gear for the blights. Eh, you get to skip the Beetle, so sure, why not?

Thread: Single Controller 100% For Insane People To Run?

Started by: KingJ0444KingJ0444

WR for 100% One Controller is just over 16 hours. The person that did the run did not save the VOD.

As for 100% in general, interest is almost non-existent. I'm planning to come back to multiple controllers soon, and I know someone else occasionally does runs, but I'm always under the impression that it's easier to ask for something after someone has the run ready to submit rather than beforehand because these ideas rarely pan out.

Also... what's with the four threads?

Yeah, I think most of the categories on this board shouldn't be run RTA, not just this bounty. Mitigating the health risks associated with going this long is more important than "RTA is RTA." RTA should not be the measure of success for categories longer than probably twelve hours, but I'm okay with up to 14 hours. Heck, there's a number of games that are abandoning RTA for even short games. IGT (In Game Time) has slowly been taking over.

One other thing to remember as well is that Breath of the Wild has like 3-4 active and regular runners now as well, as opposed to just 1 that was on the verge of quitting because the runs were actively causing health problems right before the rules were put in place. If you want a long run to be accessible to even a moderate audience, you need to accommodate them at some point and not just call other categories "pussies" that choose to make that bridge.

For example, I considered learning multi-Mario, but I'll be honest, as long as there's no sleep breaks, I'm out. I've got enough on my plate without ruining my sleep cycle. And on the flip side as a viewer as well, I hate watching no break runs because it's clear most people are miserable and making mistakes because they're struggling to focus. Those aren't a test of endurance after about 14 hours; they're a test of masochism.

You lost me with not being allowed to pause the timer. Breath of the Wild 100% let RTA go to keep the category alive, so can the longer Mario categories, including this proposed one.

Thread: Load Remover vs RTA Timing

Started by: TheScruffingtonTheScruffington

"...we do not have to worry about timer inconsistencies and theoretically the whole game could be ran without a timer as from what I heard beating the game shows you your IGT which perfectly represents your RTA time."

If the game actually includes its own in game time, I feel like that should resolve any timing issues. Use that. Those timers don't run during loading screens, and there's no real reason to get more accurate than it's own in game time. Most games that include those, Celeste and Cadance of Hyrule come to mind immediately, use those as the default times to make rankings.

Thread: Update Recommendation

Started by: pretends2knowpretends2know

With the new Update changing the rules of the game as well as how long the VRAINS category is, I have an idea to reset the full game board without getting rid of the two runs that are on there: create a category called "Legacy Patch" or the like, and move them into that.

It seems like a good idea to me because as sparse as the board is, it could keep them around without having to erase the runs that have been done.

It is not faster to get 1-Captain Toad before World 5 because to get it would require to beat the rest of World 1 or at the least 1-2 Twice. That wouldn't be an issue except it's faster to do the Pipe Jump in World 8 to the World 4 Mystery House than to complete World 1 or World 4.

Yes. The reason 1-Secret was used for such a long time was we made a mistake thinking that 2-Secret required a mini-Mushroom. It doesn't. I'm not sure if anyone's done a run since we corrected that mistake, but Mchan's timings have checked out.

Thread: Back-Up level Question

Started by: pretends2knowpretends2know

Hi, I'm thinking of taking on this game as a future speedrun. I've been watching a few runs, and I noticed that some levels are held back as safeties because cat suits get lost.

I just want to make sure I get a list of the back-up levels for something like 380 stars.

Here's the ones that I do know of from what I've seen:
2-3
3-2
Bowser-5
Bowser-Mystery

What other levels should be on the list?

You need to beat all the levels that have Winky in it from a new game file, and you must be riding Winky as you exit.

Quick work of advice: the Nabbit Players in NSMBUDX found that without an acorn, it's faster to go through 8-4 than 8-2 & 8-3 when you can't fly over those levels.

To be fair, you can beat them first if/when the rule's change goes into effect.

Considering that there's no restrictions on New Super Luigi U IL board in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, I think the change is a great idea.

Started by: GnarsloggeGnarslogge

So now that Gymnast86 has demonstrated that Any% Barrier Skip is both possible and faster, is there going to be an All Dungeons category eventually made, or is Any% - No Actor Unloading going to fill that void?

What glitches are allowed. If you do a bug limit run, you can't use any major glitches. In a normal 100% run, there's no limit on the glitches.

Mchan, it's any one level from Star Road, not 9-1. In all likelihood, it'd probably be Any% that does all of World 8, then 9-8 because World 8 has the fewest levels.

I just watch pidgezero_one's 100% run on RPG Limit Break's YouTube. Is there a category for that somewhere on SRC or is tracked somewhere else independently?
