Thread: New category proposals

Started by: wartabwartab

Don't just give up, cuz quite frankly, I think all it'd take is a run or 2 on the board to get the ball rolling. I quite frankly want to run with this idea also, so I'm gonna add it to the leaderboard (you've already got a well-thought out run done, so that's all the justification I need)

Thread: New category proposals

Started by: wartabwartab

Directed to AffectedAshes: if you want to join the Community Discord, I’m trying to start up an extended discussion regarding individual facility rulesets. Since the factory falls within its own team building confines, it was easier to set rules for, but I believe more discussion needs to be had before we finalize those rulesets. Just a few more variables are needed to be solved.

Leaderboards don’t exist for the randomizers, but if you enter the discord server, we can direct you on how to find something similar to what you’re asking for.

Thread: New Category/Sub-Category Proposals

Started by: roushmoreroushmore

The point of Trade Alt Mains is to be able to play with mons you'd normally never get the opportunity to use as a Main otherwise. Items are banned in every other format of the Trade Alt Main (across the other Pokemon games), so it'd be silly to change that rule just for these games.
- Other than that, it looks like the ruleset is fine (although when I write the rules up, I'll word them slightly differently so that they match the format of the rest of the categories).

Thread: New Category/Sub-Category Proposals

Started by: roushmoreroushmore

My biggest personal gripe with this proposal is with the item. There are some mons that would gain so much more by simply having their pick of the litter (like a type-boosting item) or being able to abuse early cash moneys by having a Nugget (perhaps being viable to use the Game Corner to get a TM previously unviable).
This one definitely could use some ironing-out of the rules. I think it could be a decent idea though.

Thread: New Category/Sub-Category Proposals

Started by: roushmoreroushmore

Hello everyone. We are open for any proposals in regards to adding new categories to our leaderboards.

Please post these requests in this forum.
- Post must include the name and basic rules for the category.
- Post must include any special rules (and reasons for those rules, it's always good to have some discussion about viability).
- Post must include video footage of a completed run of the category.

Please also request Alt Main Pokes requests here if you have completed a run of them.

Should you have any questions, join the Discord linked on this sidebar and discuss it in the gen3-category-extensions channel.

Thread: Randomizer Speedruns

Started by: PonyahPonyah

Point remains the same. The value of a Randomized Run is the ability to make adjustments on the fly. This gets obliterated within a 'WR' setting, where the the goal is to be as fast as humanly possible. Garf's post (from forever ago) still stands.

"Random Seed" is completely pointless because of how shuffled everything gets, there's no quality control, so the only way to make a 'Fair' leaderboard is to just do a Set Seed.

"Set Seed"s problem comes from the opposite effect. In order to have a Set Seed Leaderboard, you'd need to basically make a new board for EACH SEED. This significantly clutters the board, to the point where it becomes nearly impossible to enforce new runs.

Thread: New Pokemon RS category: PokeBingo

Started by: Operaticemu5779Operaticemu5779

Bingos are not very good for leaderboards due to the varied nature each attempt has. The only way to guarantee comparable times is to force players to literally use the same card, because even though cards can be weighted similar, there is always a difference in how the game will be played, and thusly, the result. Feel free to play and race with these rulesets as much as you like though. Bingos are fun.

-Also, really arbitrary ruleset ya got going on. Why bother with a OHKO or Species clause? For goals, the idea is to typically just get different species anyways, but the OHKO clause is literally useless, as pretty much no pokemon that you'd get over the course of the run (unless you end up in the level 50s and up) would come close to learning one.
-Timing method is also arbitrary. Every other category starts on 'New Game'. Because Sapphire has an easily replicable starter manipulation method, I personally don't see a reason to enable 'Safety Starter Saves'.

Thread: Can I use a r4 (for GBA)?

Started by: OliverBSNOliverBSN

We've discussed reproduction and flash-carts in the past, and have determined that we do not wish to accept them to the leaderboard. However, using the mGBA emulator would be a suitable alternative if you cannot find an original cartridge.

Thread: New category proposals

Started by: wartabwartab

Run hasn't been completed yet, but I'll be doing a race of this likely by the end of the Weekend with GZ, so just going to post the ruleset here:

9999 Game Corner Coins (FRLG):
- Save before getting Coin Case in Celadon City. (I will also create an mGBA Save file in the style of the Emmy Battle Factory Category)
- You may not BUY any coins from the desk, You may, however, pick up any Coins from the ground and receive gifts from other patrons. (This rule is to eliminate money as a factor. It's against the spirit of the run to grab other items and fight trainers to buy your way through)
- Time Starts when loading the Coin Case save file and ends when the Credit Counter hits 9999 Coins.

Thread: Hoenn Dex category

Started by: PearPear

So this was originally supposed to be a Glitched Category. The goal was to collect the 200 Pokemon in the Hoenn Dex (possibly 202 since we could also glitch in Deoxys and Jirachi) using the Pomeg Berry/Glitzer Pop glitch. If you want the "Professor Oak's Challenge", it's the 212 Catches (Glitchless) category.

Thread: Mobile emulator

Started by: ZalicxZalicx

A more direct answer: You are free to attempt to speedrun on a mobile emulator to your hearts content (I got my start on a calculator, fun story).
HOWEVER, we will not accept a run to the leaderboard that is ran on an unapproved emulator.

Thread: What is the lowest quality video Speedrun will accept?

Started by: [Deleted user]

If indeed your cup times are faster than 'all current records', you might want to check up first on all the rules to make sure you aren't mistaking the 'RTA' (Real-Time) with the 'IGT' (In-Game Time, as shown at the end of each cup). The In-Game times will always be faster than the RTA, so you could be mixing the timing methods and assuming that your times are faster.

If this is NOT the case, and your times ARE faster, I refer you to the rules, where 'Video is required for all Top 10 Runs'. Depending on the quality of your iPhone video, the Moderators may or may not accept the run as completely legitimate (they reserve the right to deny just as you have the right to submit).

Thread: Updating ILs?

It might get to the point where we have to discontinue any% and all the other full-game categories and just have to go off of ILs... at least for the time being. The whirlwind of dev activity is making this all very confusing and difficult to keep up with.
