Category title: SMG2 Any% Transformationless

Detailed rules explaining requirements for a run to be accepted or not:
Standard Any% rules, but with the additional restriction of not allowing grabbing any of the following powerups:
Cloud Mushroom, Spring Mushroom, Boo Mushroom, Fire Flower, Bee Mushroom, Rock Mushroom, Rainbow Star, Dash Pepper, Bulb Berry, or Blimp Fruit.
Grabbing Spin Drills, Life Shrooms and 1Ups are allowed, as are using Yoshi and Luigi.
If a transformation powerup is accidentally grabbed (most common place is Honeyhop), you must die as soon as possible or exit the stage. Do not take any unfair advantages, such as by grabbing starbits while holding the powerup, such as in Shiverburn C.

Other comments (optional):
Death is preferred over restarting level beacuse of how annoying that one Bee Mushroom in Honeyhop is.
There are exactly 70 possible stars before Bowser (perhaps Puzzle Plank S is possible but requires switching to Luigi and does not unlock any additional stars).

Other comments (optional):
For certain bosses like Bonefin there is a gap between the last hit and the boss cutscene where pausing is possible. I’m not entirely sure whether or not this should be allowed, mostly because it would difficult to verify

SMG1 - All Unique 1-Ups

Detailed rules explaining requirements for a run to be accepted or not:
All runs take place from a new file. You must collect all 166 1ups as listed in the guide document. After collecting all 1ups in a stage you can quit out. Timing begins on selecting the first star and ends when collect the last 1up.

Other comments (optional):
If another 1-up gets found (unlikely, but in theory possible) the leaderboard should be reset with only runs including this new 1-up counting, unless circumstances allow for valid arguments against it.

Can we have 362 stars (120+242) as well? use the current 484 runs as submissions if there arent enough runs of it.

I think for that, you might have to do a separate run. But that's still a neat idea!

I mean, these are all valid 362 runs too, we just took breaks between smg1 and smg2 🙂

Category title:
SMG1 No Intro

Detailed rules explaining requirements for a run to be accepted or not:
Normal Mario Run but the intro sequence, which plays at the beginning of the run, will be skipped by letting the timer start at 4:51m. Therefore you start at the beginning of Gateway 1 at 4:57m, which is the same time you would start at this level as when you play the intro sequence regular.
Because of the length of the blackscreen in the intro (about 7s) and the length of the blackscreen when you select 'Play this File' after you set it up (about 6s) and 4:57 as the best possible time to start Gateway 1, I came to the start time of 4:51 on the timer.
To set it up correctly you have to make a new file, play the intro sequence once and save and end in Gateway 1.
If you want to use this variation after a failed run again, you have to go back to the title screen through the “Home”-Button.
This can be used in Any%/120 Star Mario and at the beginning of a 242 Star Run.

Three videos of seperate runners playing said category (one video because there are already two runs requested):

Other comments (optional):
First 8 Minutes of the video have no sound due to a mistake by myself in my obs.
This variation facilitate the grinding of the Categories, because you do not have to watch the Intro Sequence over and over again, which cost way less time.
For anyone who wonders: You have to start with 0 Starbits.

Category has been added. At request of Tibs and Flygon the timer will start at 0.00 instead a start point until further notice. I also only added Any% and 120 Stars for now as 242 is rarely ran.

Why is "rarely ran" a factor in whether to add 242 as a tab?

 
  SilverSilver

Most of the talk was of adding it for Any% but I added 120 in just in case. I wasn't sure if people actually had plans to run 242 Stars but if people do I can add it.

Storybook%
Any%, but You have to read (or scroll through) a new Chapter when it's Unlocked.
Time starts when you start the file and Ends when the "The End" Page in the Storybook Appears.
I was going to say you could do all the chapters in one go, but then It would just be Any% with a Post Game Cutscene. Storybook% might Mix up the route a bit.

Why have it only end after a 10 minute long cutscene tho?

 
  MonkeytronMonkeytron

But if you end it before the storybook, nobody will watch the storybook cutscene and then no-one will know all the mario lore :,(
