Considering the main board has decided to allow the Master Hand glitch in the All Trophies category, I see no reason not to here as well. I’m not sure it could even save time, but it would help cut down on RNG deaths in a run that is very still heavy on RNG even with it allowed.
Similarly, I believe we should also split Console and emu runs for the category, as they have and as this board has already done for the other RTA-timed runs (All Characters, All Stages).
The Dolphin 5.0 emulator permitted on the main board already has faster loads hence their split and an argument for ours. I hope however that the CE board continues to allow the even faster loading Slippi one I’ve been using for the emu side, since it only cuts down non-gameplay elements and those who wish for a purer experience can look to the main board, or the Console section of that category if the split is made here.
Though Trophies is currently empty here, allowing Master Hand would encourage me to run it. And I’m grateful no one has challenged the Slippi emu for this board yet, but part of this post is to gauge more opinion on that before I commit to a ~15 hour run.
Sorry for wall of text, tl;dr pls allow Master Hand glitch in All Trophies and split it into Console/emu, + any new opinions on fast loading Slippi emu being allowed for RTA runs here?
Thank you for bringing this up. Yes the original board allows master hand so we will switch it here as well. I kinda just forgot too. So yes. I will also fix the console/emu stuff for RTA runs. Also about the dolphin emu. I don't see a reason to not allow them. I have done a few runs of All characters and i can already tell that it helps a bunch. And with having it be only on an emulator category. I don't see why we shouldn't allow the slippi one. CE is made for changing up the categories a bit. And i feel like all the ones you mentioned now only enhances the game to be a bit more fun and less restrictive. So again thank you for reminding me to do this.
It has now been done. Changed the Game Rules to state that the master hand glitch ban was only for All events and event IL's plus adding a rule in category rule that it's allowed for all trophies. Also changed it so you can submit to emu/console. If you notice something else that should be changed. Then feel free to let me know
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.
