Hello! I'm knew to speedrunning mario 64. I'm trying to do 0 star, any tips?

If you're new to speedruning this game you probably shouldn't be trying to do a 1/0 stars, but...do you I guess

Yeah, 16 star is definitely a better option for any beginners.

any good tutorial recommendations?

Antarctica

If you go to the top of this page you should see a tab saying guides click on that and you'll find some good tutorials and you know what i'll just link you right to it so you won't have to scoll up

16 stars is the most common answer for what category to start out for speed runners because it's short and way more doable than 1 and 0 stars. If you're completely new to the game, 70 star lets you explore way more parts of the game and you don't have to perform any glitches to complete it. I'm biased and will say go for 120 stars. Explore every bit of the game, every mechanic. If you start off in the short category, it's going to be even harder to get into the long category.

I'm not completely knew I've played it and 100% it. but I've never speedruned it

Oooh ok. 16 and 70 is good for starters.

Should I stress about LBLJ for my first few runs, 'cause it looks kinda hard

Canada

No, definitely do not start with doing LBLJ. Also I would recommend joining the discord server and asking questions in the #gameplay_help channel, will receive answers much quicker there than on this forum.

Another thing, is there an age limit to this site? I'm 11 and I'll delete my account if I'm under aged

Antarctica

You have to be 13 or older to be on discord, SRC (Speedrun.com),and pretty much any social media platform. You can stay here if you want but you won't be allowed in the discord
