Shovel Knight Category Extensions Forum  /  Submitting runs to the leaderboards
  [user deleted]

If you would like to see a new category added onto the leaderboards, you have to submit a video of the run with a comment describing the category you are running.

If you are submitting a run that uses a cheat code you have to include the part where you are inputting the cheat code.

You also cannot submit runs that use STrainer or runs that excessively short.

Hi can we put the IL boards here - We discussed on the other SK forum and Maestro proposed putting it here.

Oi so the IL board was brought up again and I'm still gonna be seeing that as a completely reasonable request considering this place is full of barren boards, which was the reason it was taken off the main board in the first place; for the concern that Any% and 100% are too subjective, what I think would work is if we had 2 subcategories for Any% and 100% with the first one being "Standard Route" and in the rule box we'd have a link to a doc detailing the route mainly used in any% and 100% (I'd be happy to make those if we go with it) and a "Special Route" subcategory for more obscure routes, with a variable option for the equipment bought. In the case of the common alternate Any% routes like skelebro, it could either be a variable in "Standard Route" or another subcategory if nobody has an issue with possible minor crams. pleasepleasepleaseplease can we actually come to a consensus with this

The only not-dumb IL category is NG+ - for you suggestion you'd have to wipe the boards clean everytime the route significantly changes, on top of timing being inaccurate anyway because of minor differences (like money pick-ups) between different runners.

The only ways to implement an IL leaderboard reasonably would be to 1) Set up NG+ ILs (and low% if people want that) only, as those are the only categories with clearly defined toolkits throughout each stage; or 2) Set up just a general IL board played on a non-NG+ file that allows any and all items and upgrades for every stage. The former makes much more sense to me, and is what I think should be done if anything, but the latter could also work if people really wanted it that way for whatever reason.

Hi, so you said, "submit a run with a comment describing category you are running", but where would we submit it? Just under a different category temporarily?
