1. Are runs with no sound allowed?
2. If I'm using an NES classic I can play with a SNES classic controller, right?

1) Depends on if the runner can be trusted, as far as I know
2) Any controller that doesn't make inputs that are impossible on an NES controller possible to do should be fine

Okay. I was wondering about the sound because I have no way of directly recording my TV screen and have no quiet recording area

Well if you don't have a quiet place, I recommend getting a capture card

The GV-USB2 is $35 on Amazon and works great for capturing sound for use in a program like OBS from the NES console.

NES Classic or the original NES? I have a classic

aah yeah, not the classic - gv-usb2 works with component cables or svideo

NES classic is hdmi, right? Elgato make very good quality capture cards that support hdmi, although they can be fairly pricey. The Elgato HD60S in particular is a card that many people use for this, and I can recommend their products from my experience with them.

yeah the only problem would be that they are pricey unless, you are willing to spend that much on a capture card

Do you need a capture card slot on the console, the tv or a HDMI port on the tv?

When I speedran some of my games on the NES classsic, my set up was a bit terrible but i'll put it here. I bough a hdmi splitter and of the two ends, one goes into a hdmi downscaler into av where it connected to an ezcap capture card. The other end went to my monitor. So around 13 dollars for a bad, but not too unviable set up.

Ok. If I ever feel like I want to submit some runs, I have lots of options now. 🙂
