Thread: Integrating Emulator into Console

Started by: PlywoodPlywood

Even if you add the time on I save from using the integral version I would still hold WR in both easy categories.

I do understand that version differences and console differences do make a significant difference but that's the case in a lot of games from the "older" generation.

For example in Ocarina of Time in 100% there is a massive advantage to playing on N64 using the 1.0 cartridge because of an exclusive glitch but they don't separate thier game into different categories for different versions or platforms.

At the end of the day we are still speedrunning the game which by definition is completing a challenge as fast as humanly possible and if that's from using version differences then so be it. Let's go fast!

I have no issue with emulator and console merging. I also wouldn't have an issue with the times being shown instead of hidden by default.

It's proven that emulators only advantage is that integral is easy to get but aslong as you have a ps2 with fast disc speed then an emulator can't compete with top times.

The main reason I think it would help the community is that emulators or very accessible and it will encourage new runners to try speedrunning this game and not feel like they are secluded into a separate category because they can't get access to the console needed to run the game.

And this is coming from someone with a lot of time put into the emulator category! Running emulator encouraged me to actually go out and buy all the hardware needed to achieve the best times possible and I hope it can encourage other people to do so too.

Thanks for the heads up. I suppose I can practice until I have a capture card.

Is an accompanied video to the run needed for submission? I will be buying a capture card to record runs soon but it may not be for another month
