Super Monkey Ball Forum  /  Emulators unbanned? (Locked)

Alex recently approved a run that was played on emulator. Have rules changed?

Did you seriously not read what Monkey said in his comment? He said his emulator run was slower. Also, there are only 2 loads, and one is instant on and off console. Think before you make a thread and read up more on your topic you're asking about first. Now that I've answered this completely, @Mods, lock this thread.

A run was still approved that went against the written rules. There's nothing in the rules that notes that an exception can be made, so I understand why there's confusion. In addition, the run is displayed as tied for the world record, not slower, since speedrun.com doesn't count decimals, only whole seconds.

Upon submitting a run, the site tells you that emulator is banned for this game. Yes of course I read the comment, that's how I knew it was on emulator. Why is this an exception though?

I guess it's because of the reasons Frikkinfriks14 said. Alex must have taken that into consideration and decided there wasn't enough of a difference between the emulator run and the console run.

I like how Jumpyluff is avoiding the one answer that emulators are slower by trying to get an alternative answer. Sorry to break it you, but it's slower, that's it, case closed. I may be a newer member of the community and haven't been doing runs for as long as anyone else here has, but I've got a lot of free time and I still know quite a bit about the game.

Slower or not, emulator is banned for a different reason. That reason is that Dolphin does not emulate the game properly. It is not accurate to console. I'd like a response from Alex.

When you say "does not emulate the game properly", you mean some could be faster and some could be slower and that keyboard controls aren't consistent?

There are pause frames for the new glitch that work on Dolphin, but do not work on console. That's just an example, I don't know if there are other issues as well.

Emulators are not unbanned. Approving Monkey's run on emulator was a mistake. Monkey's current time on the leaderboards was done on console.
