- Singleplayer mode Gauntlet/Ironman runs. e.g. Complete classic with every character in one sitting for fastest time, can still use IGT total and allow console/emu resets to not have to watch credits after each run.
Unless it becomes too annoying add up IGT for 25/6 characters, then just use RTA and up for debate on reset on credits.
- Also, not sure why there is a difference on Melee than SSB64, but is it possible to add individual character categories for singleplayer modes? It already exists for BTT and MMM, so I think it wouldn't be that hard to stand up. This is a personal goal I'm working towards with each character and tracking it separately, but it would be cool to see this available on the leaderboards instead of having to compare ganondorf to captain falcon, etc.
Apologies for not seeing your post earlier. Apparently speedrun.com doesn't announce when a post is made.
1: That could be an interesting category to work on to have you sit through every single character. I do believe IGT for every character would be really tedious. Not only for the verifiers but for the runners themselves retiming the entire run. Also i might be mistaken here but if i remember correctly. Doesn't it give you some form of a checkmark on the 1-P mode menu when you beat every character? Like if you beat every character on Very Easy. You get a little blue circle next to the highscore? If so then we can use that to verify that you beat the entire cast of characters. Then you can start runs after Erasing the 1-P High Score tab. I am not sure if the category will be added as i have no clue if more than say 2 people would run it. But it is a good idea.
2: I don't really have an explanation why they look different as i was not here when it started. We could add that but i feel like it would look rather weird. Since the criteria for the Full Game and IL would technically be the same. Beat Classic as fast as possible. The only difference would be how it looks. I do see the appeal tho. Being able to compare only Fox or Marth runs so it doesn't get hidden behind the one character you did that was the fastest is a nice thought. One question i would have then is how would we treat the difference between the full game one and the IL one. Would we keep them both and just have the IL one as a nicer layout to the original one. Or would we add the potential Full Character category and have individual characters as IL like we do for Target Test and Events. The big issue with the last one is we would most likely have to change the main leaderboard as well then and that would take ages with the amount of runs that are there. Plus we could easily loose some of the runs.
I do appreciate you coming up with ideas tho and i agree that it would look a lot better and make it a lot more fun to run with every character
There has been a few changes to the (All Characters) and (All Characters + stages) categories.
First, we now have a requirement to have there either be no memory card or having a freshly made memory card (Need video proof of it being created) to make sure that the vs matches are at 0.
