Hey all, sorry for my absence, I don't get on src often and missed some of the runs. If you ever need to get a hold of me I am in the GBA discord so you can at me there if you need me to verify your run. That being said, I have had to reject too many runs due to not having GBA BIOS. and so I added a tutorial on how to download and install the BIOS to your emulator. This link has been added to the resource page for anyone to use. This is a requirement to post a run, and if the load screens look faster than they are suppose to I will suspect you do not have the BIOS and therefore reject the run. If y'all have any questions again I am in the DKC GBA Discord ( https://discord.gg/XCqQXA7 ) just at me in the DKC1 channel. Thanks all :)

this game has a very big learning curve, but not so impossible that you wont have fun learning new things. it is short enough to run multiple times back to back, that is what keeps it fun. welcome to the community :)

I get the not killing momentum by holding jump before you land but when it comes to fences I do the same movement as I would normally but my momentum still dies. Is it because I get too close to the fence and if so what cues are there to not lose momentum?

yeah of course, actually i'll upload the bios to the resources tab when I get a chance, you will be able to download it form there. depending on the EMU you use, there is a place to upload bios files (in bizhawk you have to manually place it in the bios folder).

yeah, for almost all GBA emulated speedruns you need to be running the BGA bios. It does make the overall speedrun slower, but it makes it as close to playing on a real console as possible. For a game like DKC GBA where between every level is a load screen, we are talking multiple minutes saved just from not having to load those screens, which would render any console run pointless. Your run was not accepted because the loading times are incorrect. This is a common problem, so don't feel bad about it, if you need the bios join the DKC GBA discord and I will happily send it to you.
