Hi guys! Spo is top five video games of all time for me, I remember finally beating the bruisers and was so proud of my like 100 win 150 loss record lol. So far I have only ran Mario games (smo, NSM2, Bf, Nsmwii) but I really want to branch into this game as I love it. But first I have a few questions before I learn how to run it.
First of all, are you allowed to die? I’m really bad at some of the later fights especially the third to last one thats a grandpa (sry I forgot his name) ig if I practice I could do it it just seems really hard that way.
Second is there restrictions for running on snes classic? That’s what I would have to use.
Thirdly, is there a good beginner tutorial you guys recommend? If not I can probably copy wr movement but a guide would be great!
Finally, am I allowed to just submit a video of the credits sequence with all my times?
hi, to answer your questions:
- In a single segment run, no you aren't allowed to lose
- snes classic has no additional restrictions
- this is an excellent beginner guide by hootey: https://www.speedrun.com/spo/guide/gz5h7 The "guides" tab has other guides there which are more up to date with newer and slightly more advanced strategies, but as a beginner, the hootey video will be the biggest help to you.
- you need a full video to submit to the leaderboard. This includes creating a new file, beating all 16 fighters, and the full uninterrupted credit sequence. I used to run on snes classic, and pointing a phone at the screen whilst playing worked best for me to capture gameplay
