Wait we go y IGT now for all categories? How would I calculate it?
I created the thread before I wrote that post.
I meant having -this rule- is overboard.
I wasn't suggesting we use videos, lol. (in fact, in that same thread, right below my post F says "I agree video proof should be required for any run." in which I respond " Strongly disagree . Only top top times should require this."
I was saying the "4%" values were obviously not used there. And that a WR itself would not require video proof. Also, misc categories are less strict.
Frickin Fricks, are you gonna buy me the new windows computer to run it cause all i go is a 2011 chromebook.
i don't have $30 and weve already spoent hundreds on mkw. you're also biased and still salty about previous issues, so i will continute to ignore you and only you.
It is still possible to get videoless WR in some categories,
You removed half of the top 10 in 32 track main category because of a twitch glitch※? you can't be serious
※ (including WR holder dane who is verified AF in every possible way in every sector of the mario kart wii communitiy, including ctgp verified for nearly a full decade and even HAD a video that several mods had to have seen?!?!?)
*Existing videoless runs with times faster than the time requirements will be rejected. No runs will be grandfathered in. *
Pretty horrible idea. Also, before, top 3 runs didn't need videos. Then the requirment for videos was added. The ones without videos still stayed/grandfathered. If you grandfathered those, grandfather these.
And don't "un-grandfather" the old ones now. They made a decision and finalised it. Don't be a power hungry guy changing everything, even well-worked out past decisions from previous staff.
Could you either supply all new players with capture cards - or put a giant label:
"$200+ /ADDITIONAL/ DOLLARS REQUIRED TO PLAY THIS GAME ON SPEEDRUN.COM [in addition to what you spend on the game, controller, and wii, and internet connection (not included)" on the site?
Please? so it doesn't look too good to be true at a glance?
Btw, All my hard work and grinding for good item slots, etc, in-game has been undone. All motivation is gone, and I cannot record long videos. Thanks.
And thanks for being inconsistent with past policies that worked.
Has this section of speedrun ever functioned correctly?
I feel it's more a mod team flaw. Get more mods, none are active. Cause right now it's like "we have an occasional trickle of cheaters every blue moon, guess we'd better fuck up the sitestead of appointing new mods, because this trickle is overwhelming for the 1 person who does stuff"
Jcool also fucked up the misc categories for well over 3 weeks and it was the only few weeks i could TT them, go figure
Anyone but frikenfricks. he is too young and mentally undeveloped no offense. he has been wrong about trying to ban playrers in the past and other bullshit.
I love how the player's page protocol works flawlessly for the entire mkw community. It's well thought out, simplified, and flawless. Except here, this is the only place you're required to buy a 200$ smartphone // capture card (plus storage space) to record long (multiple hours) and short videos. And thanks for removing my old times. I thought old times before a rule change happen are still kept.
It's also a fucking hassle, in many cases. Obviously, videos are necessary in some cases, but this is overboard now.
I will not be competing here anymore as a result, unfortunately, for a plethora of reasons.
do i look at cup categories stats, wii non-play 2, or wiiu non-play 2? if from cup cats...... which spefifc cell on the spreadsheet shows me how much time to subtract off maxaura's WR co i can compare it as if it were on wii? honstly, iv tried my best, but im so lost :S
also, hopefully none of the stats used were from people lying about times damn thats fuck up the medians
$240 laptop that can run dolphin 720p 60fps?
Almost impossible to find
30fps is dumb lol
^I don't think thats close to being a strong enough argument. There has to be more clear indication why Dolphin is banned only when BOTH options seem possible to fake.
"Dolphin is more accessible and less legit by default,"
I've heard macbook pros (1000+$) cant run it, my $500 PC cant run it, my old $800 pc couldn't run it, it lags on my uncle's expensive computer system
Basically you need a quite expensive computer. even if you build it ur self u probs need at least $500
So how is it more accessible when it costs more money to buy, ansd you have to have tech knowlledge kinda, meanwhile with the hardware you go to the store/amazon/ebay and buy somethig
Damn, so Wii saves time on the credits section with a faster reset. But Wii U is still overall faster due to loading times and also the fact that resetting by menu only takes a couple seconds longer at most.
yes, the game can be played again! Because the rules are sensible again now.
^You forgot GV.
", I reset the game in the Home Menu to save time."
Why not use the reset button, isnt it faster?
No, I'm asking when can we play the game again.
dude, if dolphin and wii both produce scenarioes where it's possible to cheat, then you cant just choose to ban one.
(in response to "Alright then sure, let's ban the use of any homebrew so if your Wii is softmodded in any way your run is rejected immediately and you must show every page of your Wii menu and SD card menu before every attempt, that sounds fun but that's not the point. The point of this thread is showing why we especially can't allow Dolphin, let someone else or the mods arrange what to do about cheating on console.")
and @IloveSMB, he means the dolhpin frame itself could be used as some sort of overlap graphic to fool others into thinking dolphin was legit up and running proeprly no cheats. not sure if u knew
Can't you use savestates on your Wii using mods? And then have that play back normally to replicate a TT session, which could also fool a stream audience?
