Thread: No Ladder Glitch Category

Started by: DMBiggsDMBiggs

That's a horrible analogy, BrotherAdams. The difference between completing everything and just doing the fastest route is a lot more than just 1 small glitch. Ladder glitch or no ladder glitch, this is still Any%. Making seperate categories for the 2 would be super arbitrary. It would be more like having an "11 Exit", and an "11 Exit No Orb/Cloud Glitch" in SMW. Pointless. This is what category extensions pages are for, not main boards.

The game doesn't let you use Miis for Classic Mode.

Thread: Time Trials?

Is it possible for an individual level leaderboard for the Time Trials to be added? They could be ranked by in-game time. It could be a cool way to add some more variety and friendly competition to this game. There's so few categories as it is.

Thread: What should the official name for "the glitch where punching/kicking in the air for extra speed" be

Started by: PepsiPepsi

It's not a glitch. It's simply taking advantage of a game mechanic. You're timing your jump to preserve momentum. The game is still working as intended.

Thread: The PC .exe version seems to be running about 10% faster than the Web .swf version.

Started by: MeesterTweesterMeesterTweester

Thank you for letting everyone know that. That's pretty interesting. When I had done my runs, I just did them on the downloaded version cause I just assumed it would be faster, but I never did any testing. It's good to know I was correct.

It just sucks I did my run on a crappy cam software that has no sound and froze towards the end. I would like to improve it at some point.

Thanks nordanix! I'll get these fixed right away.

I'm gonna ask ask PokemonMaster if we can add you as a mod for this game. We're in need of more active mods.

Technically, yes. A 4:54 is possible without the "simultaneous left+right" that isn't possible on the original hardware, so a human theoretically achieve it.

It all comes down to personal preference, above all else. You can learn to play at the top level on either. Certain directional inputs on keyboard are easier, though. Spike jumps, for example, are a little more consistent, but there's not a huge difference overall. Play with whatever you're comfortable with.

Thread: Wr times

Started by: ChildSafetyStrapChildSafetyStrap

Good question. You're actually the first person to bring this up.

This mainly had to do with changes in moderation. The rules for Break The Targets were created before I came around, and we never changed them. I'm the one that added 10 and 100 Man Melee, and thus made the rules for them. We definitely need videos for WRs of these modes, since they're longer, RNG based, and WRs without videos are less believable.

I wouldn't be opposed to adding the WR video rule to Break The Targets going forward. I suppose we'd just make it not affect the runs already up. I'd like to hear more opinions on this.

Thread: Updates to the game

Started by: siccriccsiccricc

(edited: )

This game gets updated pretty often. There have been 4 versions of Beta so far, and a new one coming soon. It would be unfair and a ton of work to remove all previous version runs each time the game updates. It would also but a ton of work and make the boards extremely cluttered to add new categories every time.

What we're doing currently to make things easy and fair for everyone is allowing any version. So any run under a "Beta" category can use any version of Beta that's been released (1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, and 1.1 at the moment). Luckily, past versions of the game are saved and archived for anyone to download after they're obsolete.

This may not be the best solution, and it may change in the future. I've thought about what else to do about this, but I can't really think of anything better right now. Any suggestions would be welcome, and would be taken into consideration.

I have nothing else to say. Any future runs with any suspected usage of savestates, or any mods for that matter, will be rejected. We might end up going back to not allowing emulator runs if this problem persists...

Thread: Runs removed for a rule that doesn't exist.

Started by: TitansharkTitanshark

It's not explicitly stated in the rules, but using save-states is not allowed... across any speedrun. That either makes the run segmented or tool-assisted (or both depending on the game/mode). Save states make it not a legit run. It makes it so you know whats coming so there's no challenge, and gives an obvious advantage over actual console runs.

I can't believe I have to explain all this. I guess I do need to add it to the rules. Your runs aren't going back up, though. We're not accepting any runs with any kind of cheating, intentional or not. I talked to other mods and they agree with me.

I would've given you the benefit of the doubt and thought it was unintentional, but seeing all the rude comments you sent me on Twitch and the terrible way you've handled all of this, it's made me think otherwise.

Do it again and you're gonna end up getting banned from the site.

No problem. We're always willing to hear feedback, and possibly take it into consideration if it's agreed apon.

I just hope this doesn't deter anyone from submitting runs. It's nothing personal against people like Kaneda_Charles. We were actually gonna keep his runs up (except the the 1st place ones), but not allow runs like that going forward. Looks like he himself ended up deleting them all.

As for Kaneda Charles's runs, they've been removed. He was a trusted member of the community, but we can't continue to make exceptions for people. Rules are rules.

Once again, thank you for the input. I'll be discussing all these things with the other mods more in depth, and more changes will be coming in the future.

Hey, nordanix, thank you for giving your feedback and opinions on this matter. We appreciate all the input. Now to address these issues.

The runs from Ravenyte and pyh189 are legit. Videos of their times exist, they just haven't been linked on the site yet. This has been the case long before I became a mod of this game. It's something I've been meaning to do, but just haven't gotten around to it because of how busy my personal life has been lately. This will be one of the 1st things I'll change. I'm gonna make sure all their runs are linked.

As for the RTA vs IGT issue, I know it's a problem. The leaderboards were cluttered with submissions that were in 1 or the other. I recently changed it to make it so they all appeared under 1 timing slot, with the intention of taking off the IGT slot, making it so there's only 1 submission area that just says "Time." However, I wasn't sure how to do this without making all the IGT times across the entire game go away, so I didn't try for fear of messing the whole game up. For now, the easy fix will be to state in the rules how to submit runs. I will have to change all the times to In-Game-Time in the future if this continues to be a big issue.

The game does that for everyone, even on the best PCs. You have to close the game out every so often and reload it for it to run smoothly again.

McLeod Gaming is gonna fix this in the next major update they're gonna do for the game.
