Ok, i need to make a run to request it? @HabrenoHabreno

CE board you need more than just a run. You need justification.

(okay so I can't get the BBcode for quotes to work for some reason so, pretend there's a quote here)

OG post: "Hello, I’d like to request the undisputed best gaming platform in existence, the Tesla car.

In all seriousness, Cuphead got released on Teslas fairly recently so I’d like to get that added as a platform for the game to utilize."

Any updates on this? It's mostly for meme value so it's not of upmost importance but I think it'd be proper to have it. The Tesla version of Cuphead is only a portion of the game so it'd get a meme category on the extensions boards, but it's also a completely valid platform for Individual Level runs on the main boards so there's that.

Re: Tesla Car. Uh, what?

As with other platform requests, what is the reasoning why this platform is necessary?

 
  SBDWolfSBDWolf

Yes I know. What.

Well it's a platform that has games on it and it can't really be grouped under any kind of other already existing platforms on the site, so that would be the argument as to why it'd be necessary to make a distiction between Tesla and the platforms already present (though I have to mention - I don't think it has any exclusives currently, I believe it's mostly ports of Atari games, as well as a port of a 2018 (I think) racing game that was adapted to be controlled with the actual car's steering wheel and brakes (lol) and of course Cuphead. There's most definitely going to be more titles added to the thing but that's the current situation).
I can't speak for any of the other games present on it (I imagine for the Atari games you could just call it an emulator) but for Cuphead's case if somebody submitted an Individual Level run done on a Tesla, that run would be completely valid as a direct comparison to runs done on each of the other platforms, but in the current state there's no valid platform to submit that run under. Hence why I think it would be necessary to have it as a platform, according to this logic.

As I said in the previous post though the main reason is really just meme value, because the mere fact that Cuphead is playable on a Tesla car is a meme in and of itself and so doing a speedrun on it is an even bigger meme. You can set a legitimate IL record on a ridiculous platform, and we'd most likely throw in a separate full-run meme category on the extensions boards since there's only part of the game on Tesla so it can't go up against the other platforms in this scenario.

The "platform" is really niche and again I think it has no exclusives yet so it's not super important that it gets added, but I think logically it would make sense to have it as an option. Plus the whole meme argument, just look as some of the replies in this tweet when the release was announced to get an idea of the reception it got: https:/​/​twitter.​com/​StudioMDHR/​status/​1135670212852879360

Hope this answered the question, have a nice day.

could all the games in this series be given the web tag https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​super_stacker_series i got dha (the supermods permission)
and could by chance this game be given the multi-game tag, it covers 7 games https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​hobo_1-7

Thank you in advance.

@SBDWolfSBDWolf RE: Tesla Car - This is a no.
@davidtkidavidtki Added it to the Gold Box series, but I didn't remove it from the DnD series. Contemplating how best to handle these series.
@DabomstewDabomstew - Is this a mobile game or a console game? I see 3DS and mobile platforms, so not sure here and asking for some clarification.
- EDIT: Thank you for your reply, handled.

@afnannen136afnannen136 , @LyrenLyren - requests read but not handled.

The original Pokemon Shuffle is a 3DS game which was released on Android and iOS later the same year, but plays very much like a mobile game on all platforms with stamina mechanics / purchases etc. Not sure what the judgment in this kind of scenario is, will leave it up to site staff to decide if you think it merits the tag.

Heya, there was a small mistake with uploading the new release of the Monster Hunter Series games. Would we be able to get it fixed?

The link to the game that needs deleting is https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mhwibpc
And the new one to be added to the series is https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​monster_hunter_world_iceborne_pc (will be chaning the link afterwards)

I have permission from @JalBagelJalBagel to request this change, as he is the current main Series Mod of the Monster Hunter series. Thanks!

@ElieaEliea I added https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​monster_hunter_world_iceborne_pc/​ to the series and removed the other one.

I also pointed a Full Mod to delete this board: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mhwibpc/​full_game because it's a duplicate board. Be careful next time when adding a sub game because the board was already here (without the Expansion/DLC type but we can also set a game type for a board if needs be.)

Hello,
I would like to request the game Star Wars Battlefront (2004) to include category extensions for splitscreen runs as these run parallel with the rest of the categories. This would help me tidy up the leader boards.

Thank you,
BostonBrew
