Thread: How to record my 3ds?

Started by: CaelemCaelem

You can also record using a video camera like a phone or a webcam for the main leaderboards.
Currently NTR and Emulators aren't split, as we do not have enough information regarding them, but may end up splitting those leaderboards as well.
They both play faster than a normal console, which is why they have been separated from them.

No, as stated in the rules:
The only allowed emulator is the latest release of GambatteSpeedrun (Currently r717) with a GBC bios image.

You do not need to submit a speedrun in order to do a speedrun.
"No vid, no did" is a common saying in the speedrunning world.

@thisishowmymindworksthisishowmymindworks my mind is blown, thanks for that info, I wasn't aware. I usually use the middle click to open a new tab, so I didn't try other ways!

One annoying thing that comes up quite frequently is when trying to open multiple runs in different tabs. Since the rows aren't links, you have to open the run and navigate again to wherever you were before in a new tab.
Would it be possible to make the rows in a category be links or at least make some column a link to it?

Thank you for the answer, Liv. Letting communities decide is already a policy in itself.

That does not address this subject though, from what I could tell.
What are individual communities supposed to do? Remove the runs? Report them to you src to get them banned? Not touch the runs?

It would be nice if that question could be addressed directly, as I know there have been discussions about this and nobody knows the "right" answer.

Edit: also unrelated, but it might be good to link to that page in the menu, cause I could not find it without using Google.

Thread: Is there a site-wide policy regarding recent accusations against some speedrunners?

As we all know, this is a hot topic right now. Mutliple people in the speedrunning community get accused of immoral or even completely illegal despicable behaviour or acts.

I have seen some individual communities that remove aforementioned runners from their leaderboards, while others don't. I think it would be a good thing to have a site-wide policy regarding this, as this may get out of hand really quickly otherwise (even if the policy is to say that each community should decide on its own).

My personal opinion would be that leaderboard moderators should not become moral arbiters and not touch those runs (while removing such people from Discords, etc.). That is also what the Pokémon speedrunning community has recently decided to apply.

I'm sorry if this got mentioned before, I couldn't find it.

While I agree with @Timmiluvs's point, I still think that such a feature would be nice.
We for example have separated leaderboards between some modern paired Pokémon games (like Sword or Shield), as the game differences make the runs very different; but still are about equally fast. It would be nice to be able to compare runs directly on the site with such a feature while keeping the ranking distinct, unless you visit a "summarised" leaderboard (that would not show on your profile).

The Twitch Embeds work for the submission video, but they are still broken when it's posted in a run description.

The "dicks" are currently working on a solution to this problem, before you even went and insulted them on this forum.

That seems more like an oversight than an actual action against speedrunners. They probably put a bunch of their video material into the copyrighted material without reviewing everything manually.
That happens quite frequently with other Youtubers. They get picked up in some channel network, had an ancient video of them playing some game and an entire leaderboard gets affected.

GWR were probably not even aware of what videos this would affect.

Thread: Question about hawlucha massages

Started by: calebsmithcalebsmith

I'm pretty sure that is the reason it did not work. I'm unsure about X/Y, but changing the clock has messed with clock based events in previous gens before.

Also, if you are certain you did it right: if you actively waited for the time to roll over midnight inside of the massage lady's house, she will still tell you to come back. You need to leave and re-enter the house. That is why - if I happen to wait - will wait outside the house.

Exactly. Note that not getting the second massage is not the end of the world. You can still progress the run and get lucky. The current top time on the leaderboards actually does not even try to get two massages at all.

There's no such thing as a 100% run in a game that has no definition for % of progress.

I had requested this before, it got changed, then reverted, then further requests ignored, but please turn off the stream autoplay on the front page. My mobile data is very limited and so is mobile data for lots of people.
