Heyyy!

(I'm not on Refunct leaderboards because I haven't submitted my run, but I have a 3:01)

I thought about making Any% (Inverted Y-Axis). It sounds really meme, but it also sounds really interesting in my opinion.
It's a matter of getting used to 2 kinds of movement. You can see that throughout the run, noticeably at button 7, I get super mixed up with y-axis.

Here's a run of me doing it:

Rules:

Press the golden button as fast as possible. Runs are used on an auto-splitter. Runs are verified if and only if "Invert Y-axis" is set to "yes" and the menu screen is shown for proof.

I do feel like it will make grinding a bit more difficult when you have to show the menu screen at the beginning of each run. If anyone has another way to show proof for this, that'd be great.

Name: Any% One-handed

Rules: "Beat the game

Video proof is required, and In Game Time must be shown in the video.

New Game Glitch is not allowed" from any%

PLUS

Only one hand may be used to perform any action used during the run (menu is exempt obviously).

Video must show both of the runners hands in frame the whole time, and only one hand may be touching any sort of controls.

Video:

Additional: If a runner doesn't have a webcam, a video taken by another camera may be used, but it needs to be synced correctly so that the movements in the game match what's shown in the video.

Name: any% crouched (?)

Rules: normal any% with NGG rules + the crouch key must be held at all times you are in control of the character (I used nohboard for this but a webcam would also work)

Video:

Other info: as far as i can tell through testing, any% without NGG is impossible (mainly due to the long springboard jump to the island)

^^Darn, just posted this in the discord today, good to see that it's possible

I think the island jump is possible. I did once while messing around with this like 3 weeks ago and I landed it, but I might've accidentally let go of crouch and given myself extra speed by accident. The way I did it was by pretty much just BHOPing around on some spring boards and wall jumping to keep my momentum.

Yeah it's definitely possible to make the island jump with full running speed by bhopping to keep it, and in testing I felt like I sometimes got random speed boosts, so I'll do some more testing.

On a related (ish) note, 100% isn't possible as far as I can tell but 97% is (as if it needed to be more of a meme) and all cubes is very likely impossible.

Oh rad. Is there any way to create a script or like a pause buffer in Super Meat Boy where it'll just hold crouch the whole time?

Name: All Achievements

Rules: hit the gold button in under 4 minutes with less than 33% completion then achieve 100% completion. No NGG and no closing the game mid-run.

Video:

Additional: not sure if there's a good way to time this, personally I used an autosplitter to start the timer and then went back and retimed after the fact.

Name : Look Down %

Rules: You must look down the entire time, unless you have to go under water like the first button of #18, because you can't swim up while looking down.

duck% is good and should be on leaderboard

It was posted here 2 years ago, but I think that Cubes Cubed is a very good idea for an arbitary category.

Can we get softlock%? The goal of the category is to softlock yourself as fast as possible. My current best method is playing up until button 15 is rose then going back to 10 to Yusama Dive then navigating around the subsurface area and getting boosted back into the platform below button 15.
