Super Smash Bros. Melee Forum  /  Questions about SSBM records
(edited: )

Here is the SSBM TAS records page: http:/​/​tasvideos.​org/​Mugg/​SSBM.​html (Please ignore everything after Event Matches for now)

I'm in the middle of cleaning that page up. I included RTA records and made sure to distinguish console records from emulator records. Now I have some more questions which I posted here: http:/​/​tasvideos.​org/​forum/​viewtopic.​php?p=491272#491272

Perhaps someone can answer? And you can post feedback here.

I allow Masterhand glitch in RTA because there is really only one place where it is used, in event 4. Since TAS is listed as using it I think it wouldn't be fair to ban RTA from using it. If many people dislike this idea I can change it, though.

Suggestion: Add 10-Man and 100-Man Melee
You pretty much have evey single mode, and even misc stuff like Escape from Brinstar, but why no 10MM/100MM? They both deserve recognition. I see no point in leaving these out.

If you want to add them you can use these documents for help:
• 10-Man Melee:

2: https:/​/​docs.​google.​com/​spreadsheets/​d/​1FY1rKecLJBYODzJPyp5hL59ocAl46oDbXJhTbeyHUl8/​edit#gid=719735221
• 100-Man Melee: https:/​/​docs.​google.​com/​spreadsheets/​d/​1FY1rKecLJBYODzJPyp5hL59ocAl46oDbXJhTbeyHUl8/​edit#gid=1751831805

Allowing Masterhand Glitch?
It's your page, so if you want to allow Masterhand Glitch then that's up to you. I'm not knowledgable about the glitch, but it just seems to remove skill and looks lame. At least for Event 4 from what I can tell. I personally don't like it.

I don't know that much, you're probably better off asking the Discord where the top runners are. Anyway I'll give it a shot for what it's worth.

1) Where can I find all the current RTA HRC world records?
A: I don't follow Home Run Contest, but perhaps this Google Spreadsheet can help you out: https:/​/​docs.​google.​com/​spreadsheets/​d/​1FY1rKecLJBYODzJPyp5hL59ocAl46oDbXJhTbeyHUl8/​edit#gid=593456232

2) How can I calculate meters <-> feet?
A: Can't you just google for some converter? Or is Melee different from real life?

3) How can I calculate the distance total?
A: Not sure I understand. Just add all together?

4) What is the WR for Btt Samus (on console)?
A: The current World Record holder has a playlist with all his Samus runs, perhaps a few of those might be done on console: https:/​/​www.​youtube.​com/​playlist?list=PLN_B9KrgBBFYkBDuyREAchZlu0GVmfkvn.​

There's also LDA's former WR which I have no idea if done on console or not:

Otherwise just check Youtube or ask in the Discord.

5) Are any more RTA records emulated and not marked as such?
A: Just ask in the Discord honestly for help. I don't pay attention to whether a run is emulated or not, I also don't have the interested to check.

6) Are there any RTA records I missed (especially for Events)?
A: I have my own Google Docs for Events for personally use, but you can use it if you want. I update it as often as I see a new record pop up: https:/​/​docs.​google.​com/​document/​d/​1LEEVG-rCyK1jtL_kwKoEIrYedNJTGd6pEyyUe2C3wG0/​edit

There's also this Google Spreadsheet (I linked it earlier about the HRC question): https:/​/​docs.​google.​com/​spreadsheets/​d/​1FY1rKecLJBYODzJPyp5hL59ocAl46oDbXJhTbeyHUl8/​edit#gid=907515648

Here's a few that you missed though:

• Event 5: There's a 3rd player who has 10.85, named ZyOn:
• Event 20: The WR is actually 13.78, not 13.85. This is also by DRM0512:
• Event 34: Both Vikingja and Emperor91 also has the Tied World Record of 10.95:
• Event 42: Emperor91 also has the Tied World Record of 4.78:
• Event 44: Keys and Vikingja also has the Tied World Record of 15.58.
• Event 45: Keys also has the Tied World Record of 12.53:

Hopefully I didn't miss anything, you can just check the document that I linked prior if I did. I hope this helps!

Wow thanks for that lengthy post.

Yes, 10MM and 100MM are going to be added eventually. The reason it wasn't on the page is because barely anyone TASes it.

If more people object to Masterhand glitch in event 4, I will change it.

Converting meters <-> feet needs to be exactly like in Melee. I don't know if the values Google gives are what Melee uses, and I don't know if to round up or down...

Because of the rounding problem, I'm not sure "adding everything" will do. Adding times like in Break the Targets does not work because of the rounding problem. Assuming we are counting up:
1 frame equals 0.01
2 frames equals 0.03
3 frames equals 0.05
Adding 0.01 and 0.03 would give 0.04, but it doesn't exist in the game.

Thanks for the corrections in Events.


Luigi 1250.9m by Sin2324 as linked in the google doc, is not available on Youtube. Any other Luigi video?
