So I've been thinking about what to call the "100%" category of this game since it's not technically a true 100%. Because there's 51 stages in the game and the "100%" route only lets you complete 50, how about we take a page from the Super Mario World community and rename it "50 Exits"?

Also, would it be worth it to maybe add a "Bonus%" category for completing the five stages unlocked with the password from the credits? Since the speed shoes basically invalidate many of the puzzles and intended level solutions in the game, what about a "No Shoes" category too?

I've thought about this a lot and I have no good ideas so far for the name of the category. As for no sneakers, we can add that in for sure because I've thought about running/routing it out! Finally Bonus% we can probably add also.

So just so we're clear...

Bonus%
No Shoes
50 Exit

All in favor of the above, say "Aye"

or actually, a thumbs up would work too. In the bottom left of the text area.

50 Exit seems like a reasonable solution, provided there is no other way to achieve 50 "exits"

Also, to be clear, 96 Exit refers to the fact that there are 74 levels, some with multiple exits. To adopt that naming convention implies that you take care to pick the correct number, since some levels do have multiple exits. Are you prepared to extend the rules beyond just beating the level one way, but actually beating each level every possible way?

Well, when you put it like that, maybe we need to discuss this a bit further. After all, I think you and DREX know the game better than I do, and I've admittedly never dealt with such a category convention before despite being familiar with it's prevalence in the SMW scene. I was just going off what they were saying, as both Draco and DREX had given the thumbs up on 50 exit. But I dunno, not gonna rubber stamp it if not everyone is on board.

EDIT: I've given the category "?? Exit" for now until you guys are fully on board with a proper category name. I think everything else is fine though.

I honestly think calling it 100% is fine. The game gives you the bonus of not having to play the last few levels if you beat all the other levels, from what I understand. If anything, that is how you verify that the 100% requirement was achieved. I wouldn't get too hung up on worrying about whether or not you are able to actually play every level in that context.

Just my $0.02, since I have no plans on running the category. I just wanted to give some insight from my experience.

Ah yeah, it's technically 50 LEVELS, not necessarily 50 exits. My suggestion didn't take that into consideration. My mistake. 🙁

Perhaps "50 Levels" is a more clear term, assuming that simply naming it "100%" isn't something that we can come to consensus on? (I personally am okay with calling it 100%, as historically I've always referred to it as that.)

Yeh, okay, "50 Levels" it is then.
