Thread: Allowing the PC Decomp

Started by: wersterwerster

Wondering if the PC decomplication will be/is allowed for S1/2 2013.

The decomp can be found here: https://github.com/Rubberduckycooly/Sonic-1-2-2013-Decompilation

The tl;dr is this allows you to play natively on PC, which is way more accessible. It isn't a port, you still need to have the release assets to run the game. Would definitely allow way more people to run the game, as you wouldn't have to deal with the two awful options of either capturing mobile devices, or using a mobile emulator.

Thread: How do I access Instashield in v4.6.0 and why is it used in the default category

Started by: DiceDiceDiceDiceDiceDice

It is in the base game, you just need to change the shields to S3K in the options. Go to level select, play 0 0 0 and change the items there.

To use for the Time Attack mode, simply Game Over after changing the items, and then go to Time Attack.

Thread: Sub-Category in ILs for Random boxes

Started by: wersterwerster

I've had a few people complain about the idea of random boxes for ILs, so I think the best thing to do is have them be a sub-cat. Have one board that doesn't allow them, and one that does. Otherwise some times are simply unbeatable without using them (which a fair amount of people dont like), or they just arent allowed period (which is also not a good idea to ban something just because it's fast)

Requesting All Gold Prints for HG/SS.

Timing: Timing is by RTA, where timer starts upon the first fully white frame after Soft Reset or game boot up and ends when the textbox saying 'The Gold Print was added to the Vs. Recorder' is cleared after obtaining all 5 Gold Prints.

Rules: Glitches are not allowed.

Saving and quitting (S + Q) is allowed.

Runs must be done on English version.

Resetting at the credits after the Elite Four is allowed, so if any time is spent in the credits, this time is also included

Changing the real time clock once the run has started is allowed during the run, as long as you save and reset.

Having a save file present when you start the run is not allowed.

Thread: Voltorb Flip RNG Manipulation

Started by: TheNegotiatorTheNegotiator

There isn't a guide yet, though I am in the process of making one.

The idea is simple though. Voltorb Flip uses secondary RNG, which is mostly static throughout the run. As long as you're doing RNG Manip (which you absolutely have to be to even try to manip Voltorb Flip) there's only 2 extra things you need to be aware of:

1) Make sure you don't spend any extra time on the route between Union Cave and Azalea Town. It rains there, and rain advances secondary RNG, so any time spent there walking or waiting for the spinner will mess it up.

2) Follow the Voltorb Flip pattern exactly. Most flips in Voltorb Flip advance secondary RNG by 1, but if you choose a panel that has no bomb on either it's row or column, it won't advance at all. So the panels chosen are specifically done to advance by specific amount, if you choose the wrong ones you may get different boards.

As long as the game footage is visible throughout, that's definitely acceptable for a submission.

Thread: NG + Category for complete all stadium TOURNAMENTS Round 2?

Started by: BananaBoatKidBananaBoatKid

These games have enough "beat a small part of the game" categories already, more is not the answer, especially when they would be similar to something that already exists. We've got the IL cups already.

So that would be on the cat extension boards over here: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​pkmngen4ext#Manipless_HeartGoldSoulSilver

It won't be added to the main boards due to it's arbitrary nature.

Afaik IL boards are planned for just about every Sonic title on site, just that it's something that'll take a bit of time to setup.

No. These games have enough "beat a small part of the game" categories already, more is not the answer, especially when they would be so ridiculously similar to something that already exists.

Thread: RNG Manipulation for Own Movement

Started by: jelome1989jelome1989

(edited: )

I'd recommend joining the Discord and asking questions in the platinum channels there, as there's a lot to go through. But to give a quick rundown:

1) We have our own version of RNG Reporter that allows you to search for Pokerus frames as well

2) Held items are still something we can't search for in our rng reporter, some people made their own scripts that allowed them to search for it, but neither of them are really active. If you're committed to your current seed though, the best bet would be to boot up the ultimate rng lua and look at encounters

(I don't believe either of these are in the resources, we really should put them up)

3) Loadlines show where the loadlines are (duh) which is relevant for manipulating encounters as when you pass over loadlines often loads more NPCs on screen which advances the RNG in different paths.

Thread: Individual Level leaderboards created for Single Cups

Started by: wersterwerster

Hey all, just letting you know I've made IL boards for the single cups for both the Stadium games. So submit away!

In case you can't tell from the rules, Challenge Cup timing starts when you select the cup level, as that's when your team is "confirmed"

Of note for this game, they hold both English and JP cups. Only Pika/Petit have the sub-category to separate though, as Prime Cup is completely identical, and the others are only available in one version of the game (e.g. Poke Cup is only in English, and 97, 98, 99 Cup is only in Japanese)

Thread: Board changes

Started by: flyingfoxflyingfox

Bit silly the level leaderboards don't have hidden palace or boss attack. The boards were obviously just copied from s2 plain instead of adding all the things in this game.

Also the addition of & Tails being separate categories is super duper dumb. Mirroring Mania for the sake of it is ridiculous, just makes shit barren for no reason (and Mania boards aren't good). Do the thing that actually works for that game. Not picking Tails as a partner isn't worthy of a diff category at all - it's not a diff character. Would be just as silly to add different categories for whether you use elemental shields or not. Do the thing that's faster.
