at this point I'm convinced that a sub-8 2J time is more likely than 457 for me, so I'm gonna healthily grind both like I did when I first learned 2J. Also Super Metroid KPDR sub hour is 3rd on the list. Wolverine NES and a few other NES platformers top 5/wr in mind, but we'll see. Warpless sub-20 but I'll get to that once I'm cool with my any% time. would like to learn SM64 16 Star/SMW 11 exit/SMB3 NWW

  1. smb1 any% 4:56.4. i'm actually seriously underestimating what i could do. in theory, i could actually get wr by the end of 2020 provided that i still have motivation and don't get eaten alive by GCSEs. the trouble is that my motivation for any% is kinda inconsistent, and idk if i'll have the patience/time to grind for many months to get wr or even 4:55. that may happen in 2021 though if i'm still around then :)
  2. a thicc warpless time. 19:04 would be nice because that's what darb has, and i always end up watching darb's 19:04 for whatever reason. i'll go for 19:0x with small fire first, and then learn small fire.
  3. 2:32/2:33 minus world ending. i'll definitely get 2:33 because -1 full fpg is someFree but idk if i'll care enough to get a 2:32.
  4. onehand wr (preferably a 4:58 but i'll settle for a low 4:59). i was going for this back in like july/august of 2019 and actually had a few runs a framerule or two ahead of wr but they all died in tragic ways, most notably one run that would have been two framerules ahead of wr died to a bad hammer bro in 8-3. this run wouldn't be so hard do get because wr is free, but playing onehand for too long gives me major hand cramps so idk if i'd be able to get it because of that.
  5. 24.xxx 1-1 as fire mario LUL
  6. 10:5x 1 warp. i got 11:01 yesterday in a run that missed two frame walljump so that should be someFree
  7. a good smb2j any% time. i don't want to jump in and say 7:5x because idk how much i'll actually play it but i ran that category for a few days last summer and it was super fun. definitely going to play it again some time this year 8 ) learn smb2j warpless. i haven't even beat the game warpless yet but i'm told that it's a brilliant category to play as a getaway from smb1, so that sounds like a good blessing when i go for harder and harder times in smb1.
  8. play smb3 again. i learnt it for 12 hour challenge and then never played it again for some reason. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
  9. get a time in 16 star that i'm happy with. same as smb3 - i learnt it for a few days, got a kinda bad pb that i never even highlighted and then never played it again. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

these are all i can think of right now but i'll inevitably end up running something else

gl to everyone on their goals

  • CATEGORIES FILLER > GOLD/PLATINUM (great name lol lmao jaja xd): Basicaly, to run absolutely all the cactegories and subcategories that exist in the main leaderboard and in the category extensions leaderboard lol lmao; I alredy doesnt submit any run to any of those leaderboards yet, but I am thinking in to incorporate to the comunity, and I would like to prove all this nice and great categories, now more that I downlod an emulator lmao (for example, for the cheat codes; before I would play it in Switch lol); The only exceptions are the "Minus world ending" category because I dont have the japanese version :( :c, probably the 11x warpless and 11x any% that are alredy too long and too repetitive so I dont think that I would be go to do it, and by the moment all the categories that are from "All Stars" because I doesnt have the All Stars version yet> this that last one not sure, maybe I install on an emulator and play it lmao

Apart of that:

  • Get a good Any% PB time for myself; I doesnt have an specific time lol; I dont know how hard can be exactly to do a sub 5, but would be so nice to do it some day lmao; In all case, by the moment a good goal would be to reach to 5:10 or better lmao
  • Run a good "Anti-Pacifist Warpless" without fail any time (by the way a free WR jaja XD)
  • Get a good Warpless PB time for myself; the same tan in Any%, not sure about of the time; I supose that by the moment can I be happy with a sub 22 or something like that :) :D xd
  • Run an 11x Any% :) , and maybe, only MAYBE, but maybe, a 11x Warpless :D

Smb1 goals for end of 2020:

  • very low 5 or sub5 any%
  • 44.7xx or better 8-4 IL
  • complete a 1 warp run
  • learn the few stages I can't do yet and then complete a warpless run
  • do a segmented any% 4:55
  • get low 4:56 pace to start of 4-2 (doing 1-1 and 4-1 FPGs) just because it feels good
  • have fun

Current PBs and consistencies so I can compare to this when I (hopefully) view this again in 1 year:

  • 5:13 any% (and had 5:05 to 8-4, 4:58 to 4-2)
  • 44.92 8-4 IL
  • 13 out of the last 100 attempts at optimal 8-1 without FPG
  • 4% 1-1 FPG from savestate after underground
  • I wanted to have FPG in a run as 2020 goal but I acidentally did that last year without even trying hard, on the third dead run after learning FPG

SMB1 Sub 5 Any% (currently 5:07) sub 20 warpless would be nice but you never know, i have short temper Minus world (fds) get like 2:3x, that would be cool

SMB3 Actually complete No Wrong Warp Any% (the levels after the ships are annoying)

SMB2J get all stars version run that's actually decent something good on NES version to hopefully?

Skate 3: All Films Run, maybe wr? Any% Run sub 3 Hour (and actually figure out a way to film it)

11x Categories - New Timing Method

Hey Folks!

Just wanted to announce a new change to timing methods for both 11x categories. The new timing standards are as follows:

  • Timing starts from power-on/reset (or game select if you're using one of the combo cartridges).
  • Timing ends on grabbing the axe on the 11th run.
