Can’t you play SNES version? I think that’s glitchless.

I’m eating through cheap Miadore USB controllers for my 16 star speedruns.

Are there any recommendations for a controller that can actually last more than 3 months of constant BLJs?

Fake times. Fake runs. Never even played this. Someone submitted run on my behalf. 😂

Is anyone here? Runs have been submitted and this isn’t a busy game to moderate.

Kind regards

I submitted a personal best run 4 or 5 days ago and still hasn’t been authenticated. I spoke to another runner who says he has many pending runs awaiting approval. Is there a problem with moderating in this game?

Tbh I still don’t see why PAL just can’t have its own category considering many games are broken down into so many different speed run categories anyway.

The game doesn’t have a big following and has not been a popular game to speed run so why not implement something new.

Just because ‘it’s always been this way’ isn’t a good enough reason to not allow for change.

At the moment we’ve got ntsc vs PAL in the same category when There is no chance of a PAL console obtaining WR. Why is PAL even included in the console selection?

Surely worth consideration? It might even attract more people into speed running the game.

The lack of milliseconds I think would only be an issue if one day people had the exact same time, Which honestly I think is highly unlikely. However I do concede the point that it’s not impossible for two people to have the exact same time. However the best way to resolve this would be that whoever had the time first would remain No1.

I sensible option would be as Hitshee suggested for moderators to allow pal players to put the stars up to 6 of that speed was equal to NTSC speed. I would need to run a video comparison to see if 6 stars is equal to nTSC and if it is then we have a workable solution :)

The video is just a side by side comparison of game times tbh. Nothing amazing 😂

If PAL can’t have its own category then I guess I will have to go NTSC. Shame to abandon my PAL console though as I’ve had it for 28 years.

It would have been nice to have an individual PAL category so we don’t have to abandon the system altogether.

The only real answer to allow all types of games to be played would be to use game time as the deciding time. Add up all round times (time remaining) and the the highest time wins. This is also something I demonstrate in the video. I know it’s not been done before but it would be a very including way of doing things.

Just an idea.

Hi everyone,

I’ll be dropping a video down on a YouTube tonight showing the difference between my PB on pal console vs Wavy Commanders WR on Emulator (Zangief).

It will demonstrate the necessity for a separate category due to the increased speed of the Emulator version over the console.

Most other Speedrun games have a separate category for emulator vs console so could we please implement this for SF2Turbo?

Regards Doc
