I plan on beginning any% runs as soon as I finish my YouTube series on the game. Anything major that's been discovered so far?
Yeah, 16 star is definitely a better option for any beginners.
Emulators are perfectly fine within certain perameters, but it has to be one of the good ones. Certain emulators aren't allowed from what I know, so make sure you're using something like project64.
Thanks, the run ended up going really well and the games were surprisingly fast.
I'm going to be doing a massive 3D Mario Marathon starting tomorrow and I was curious if anyone has any tips for just general speed in the galaxy games, since I feel like those will take the longest.
Yes, it's entirely 3D. There are 2D images and textures used for a few things, but generally you are playing in a 3D world with full 3D movement. If you take a look at the game files, you can clearly see that it's made up of 3D objects and not 2D ones.
I do understand why you might have been confused though, since around that time there were '3D' games that weren't actually 3D. Take Super Mario RPG for example, It looks like you can run around 3D and can move back and forth and all that, but In reality it's just clever programming mixed with carefully layered images and sprites. That's not a true 3D game. However, SM64 is most certainly a true 3D game.
I think that would count as any other emulator, but you might want to get some advice from a moderator of the game.
I've been wondering, why do we need our runs to be somewhere on the internet like twitch or YouTube? Would it really be so hard to make it possible to just make a way to give them a video file?
