I unfortunately am only able to run the game on my Xbox One. I don’t have a good enough computer especially to use LiveSplit and record while running it on PC. Is there evidence of an Xbox WR for 106% or does absolutely no one play it? I only see 1:30:00 to be potentially as fast of a run possible for Xbox One (while current PC WR is near 1:12:00) and I would like to see if I could achieve a WR for beating the game non-PC. Also wondering if all categories can have a leaderboard excluding PC because it is obviously has a huge advantage over other systems.

I think it would also encourage more people that don’t have PC to run the game. I haven’t played it much the last 2 years but I want to get back into it and run a 1:30:00-1:40:00 run and not feel like it’s actually not great compared to WR

Keep in mind that the worl record is made by an amazing player which explain the gap between wr on console and pc.
And i totally agree that we should seperate console and pc leaderboards since the version are different in term of loadings and it could encourage console players to run the game

I am not aware of many console runs for 106%, this is the best I know: . I'd say a console 106% could go below 1:20 (losing about 3 minutes for slow loads etc and the rest for lack of naija). I'd suggest not thinking about the WR too much as it can be very discouraging initially.

Splitting the leaderboards won't happen as it would unnecessarily divide the player base and besides there aren't very many console runners to begin with.

Also no timer glitch on console either (or at least it's that way on Switch and from what it looks like that run too) so you'd lose a bit of time doing certain rooms twice.

But yes, more people should run on console. I don't know if splitting would do anything in terms of getting more people to run on console. You can get a very good time on console yet not many run on console. But idk. Although, of all the categories, 106% would make the most sense to split since it has some different unlockable characters. Not that I think it should be done just throwing that out there.

My record which I did like 2 years ago(haven’t been playing the game) on Xbox One was 1:51:37 and my best possible run I could achieve with all my best segments is 1:37:15.78. I’ve already improved that a few minutes over this last week since I started playing again. You cannot skip credits and don’t have naija. Although Xbox One load times are much faster than 360 and you can now do timer glitch jump glitch which helps a lot. I’m not sure sub 1:20:00 is possible but sub 1:30:00 is definitely possible but still insanely difficult.

Maybe I need to learn new level-to-level strategies/like maybe skipping certain levels, heading back to dark world after doing 3 light worlds, stuff like that. With the lack of naija just going from 1-7 then 7 dark world and 1-6 dark world is my current strat. I do skip 3-4, 3-5 and 3-5 warp zone because you need the kid for 3-4 but that’s my only extra strategy. Doing Chapter 1 then Chapter 1x just loses time on the Xbox version I think

Would love to see PC WR-holder run on Xbox One. It would be interesting bc he is accustomed to keyboard and the use of naija so I wonder how fast of a run could be pulled off and the routes that would be taken throughout all of the chapters.

 
  JJPrattJJPratt

Timer glitch is also harder to pull off I believe on Xbox but not sure. Thanks for the input guys!

 
  JJPrattJJPratt

Also any tips you guys have for improving the SMB speedrun or general speedrunning tips would be appreciated thanks!

The point of doing dark forest after forest is to get the required bandages for josef+naija so I suppose there isn't much point in doing that on console. Skipping 3-1 - 3-5warp for later should be faster than what you are doing currently since it reduces the amount of map exits and enters.

Also most likely using pink knight and spelunky saves time somewhere so there might be route improvements related to those.

Might be worth looking at this run: It looks like it only uses characters available for consoles.

Unfortunately you need 90 bandages for pink knight, or the console run could be really fast since he is extremely op in almost every level. Nearly every stage has pink knight at the top.

I only watched a little bit of it but i have to say that seemed like a very impressive run. 1:25:08 before timer glitch and jump glitch. Although my best Chapter 1 is a little bit faster than on this run yet still 17 seconds slower than what this runner got... shows how crazy load times impact the run. You lose about 1 min 40 seconds on the end credits in the xbox run. I'm going to guess 5 minutes are lost in the Xbox 106% at least just from loading because i already lose 20 seconds just in chapter 1 light world compared to PC. I think what is bringing my time down is not practicing and optimizing routes on later chapters. If you don't count naija i think i keep up pretty well Chapters 1-6. Chapter 7 and dark worlds are where i need to improve time and character selection for the dark worlds. I haven't run a full speedrun since i got back into the game just 3 days ago. I think I will try to fit spelunky into the run some although he is only good in levels that are very horizontal based. Also, i wouldnt be able to skip 3-1 to 3-5 because then i wouldnt be able to do the boss at the end of the chapter. maybe i could skip back to 3-4 after picking up ogmo in the warp zone?

 
  MatteMatte

Ah yes it was one level too many, I guess it is no good then. Skipping 3-4 + 3-5warp is the next best thing. Not sure about ogmo, getting him early loses about 8seconds, you'd need to time how much it saves.

Just finished watching the run. Really clean play by the runner. Naija is used in Dark Rapture a lot and Josef is used a decent amount throughout the whole run but besides that the rest were Xbox characters. What makes this run crazy is that there were only 36 deaths. They didn’t play too aggressively but didn’t die much so it paid off. Glitch girl was also really lucky for the runner. The run was 1:25:08 which I think is near a 1:31:00 if converted to Xbox because of loading and use of Naija and Josef. I can’t imagine an Xbox run going anywhere below 1:25:00 but hopefully I can prove myself wrong at some point haha

You can unlock characters by cheat codes like in Kilayes 1:30 run

 
  JJPrattJJPratt

How is that done? Don’t know if that would even be possible on Xbox

 
  ScruffyButtonsScruffyButtons

On the character select from entering a level via the map you type say for unlocking brownie you press rb rb rb x x x b try it

 
  JJPrattJJPratt

Alright I’ll try it when I can. Is there a list of the codes? And who can be unlocked and what are the advantages of having them for example brownie?

 
  JJPrattJJPratt

Well thanks for info and help guys! i have only ever played the Xbox version when speedrunning in the past and I'm accustomed to it so i will continue to run on xbox but i just got a nice computer so expect lots of runs to be up soon for PC! they will probably not be great but it will take me a while to figure out keyboard and characters like naija
