Forums  /  Super Mario Galaxy  /  How large portion of the runs do you have to spend not playing the levels proper?

This means the following:

1. The time that starts when you grab a star to a time when you gain control again in the next level.

2. The times when camera pans to show a star spawning or when it shows something opening up.


How long do these take in minutes or percentage-wise in any% and 100% runs?


I don't know how long the cutscenes and menus take but what I want to know is what you mean by 100%. Do you mean the closest to 100% by getting 242 stars or 100% as in 120 stars? With 242 I could see that being considered 100% but 120 is definitely not 100%.


watch a run and time it you lazy bum

Francesco and Lyriati like this. 

not to dive you away but its like 45 seconds between stars lol...
