Hi I know it's maybe not the right place to write this, but can you put an M&M's series since there are three games in the site:

https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mmss
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mandms_kart_racing
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mms_the_lost_formulas

Thank you - DemataPyro

@PeteThePlayerPeteThePlayer Done.

@DemataPyroDemataPyro it must be requested here: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​requestgame and must be requested by a moderator of a least one game of this series and you don't moderate any of these games. Contact the games moderators to see if they're agree for a series page on the site and they'll request the series themselves and we'll look at it.

Hello, I want to request removing the type "Webgame" to the following games:

1) Run 2
2) This Is The Only Level
3) This Is The Only Level TOO
4) This Is The Only Level 3
5) This Is The Only Level 4
6) Hungry Pumkin
7) 0error0
😎 asciivania
9) Asteroids Revenge III - Crash to Survive
10) Focus
11) Hexiom

Due to recent changes I think it's intended in a different way like "unofficial releases" and so to uniformize with the other games and series that doesn't have the Webgame type. Web platform is the only thing those games need.

Thanks

I was asked to elaborate here on why Stadia should be added as a platform. I would like to think I understand some of the staff's reservations, but I don't know what specifically is holding y'all back from adding a tag for a new platform, so I can only guess as to what they are in trying to address those reservations.

1. There are Stadia-exclusive games, one of which is out now.
2. There are Stadia-exclusive features for multiplatform games that currently exist, (such as picture-in-picture squad screenview, as one vivid example).
3. Just as there are differences between a PC and a console versions of a game (load times, control methods, game versions, performance differences, mod-ability, etc), so too are there differences for all these aspects between Stadia as a platform and other competing platforms like PC and current/next gen consoles. Stadia is not just remote PC play.
4. In addition to the launch lineup that includes 23 games that have pages here on SRC, it has been included in several of the latest multiplatform game announcements (for instance, today's announcement of Doom Eternal launch date has PC, XBO, PS4 and Stadia featured prominently on the date splash screen).

I can see why something such as OnLive would not have been added to the site because OnLive was running the PC version of a game that you could only play from a PC.
Similarly, I can see why xCloud would not be added as a platform here because it is running on xbox hardware, (albeit remotely, and only with an xbox controller on an Android phone.)

Stadia is a weird hybrid between console and PC. It runs on a PC but it uses a closed system. It picks and chooses features that are from PC or console.
The game versions are ported to Stadia, they aren't just switched over as copies of the PC versions of games. The options in a game's menu are different, the versions are different, the button prompts are Stadia-specific (if you're using a controller).

"Why is it necessary to add this platform?"
Because there are games being speedrun today on Stadia that can't accurately be displayed here, and the only current workaround is to mislabel the platform in a run or game submission.

I can only guess that PS5 and XSX probably won't need to be vetted as platforms, and for the same reason you want to vet Stadia more carefully given that it does not have the track record or reputation, being a newcomer. So I think I understand why you would be particular.

I don't suppose the argument that "SRC tracks other less worthy platforms" is valid because like with game submissions, standards change, so while my other points stand independent of this, I do mention it now in passing.

So yeah here I am coming across as a shill just to suggest the site add a big new platform. But to summarize, basically it's its own thing, not just a way to play PC. SRC should track Stadia games and it should track versions of popular speedgames that do exist and will exist on the platform. This is because the software is ported and therefore changed, not just migrated over exactly as is from whatever the lead development platform was. (And for some games, Stadia -is- the lead development platform.)

Can "The Talos Principle Custom Maps" be set to be a "Server/Map" of "The Talos Principle":
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​talos_principle_custom_maps
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​talos_principle
And can "The Talos Principle Category Extensions" also have it's base game set to "The Talos Principle" (It's already a category extension):
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​talos_principle_category_extensions
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​talos_principle

Also, not sure if it's been reported yet, but the link to this thread by the base game box still points to the old, locked thread.

Would it be possible to get get "Arcade1up" added as a console selection. These are the new mini arcades.

Also wanted to request new regions for selections. Can we get "World" and "Oceania" as options?
