Thread: About the default options of the PSP version

As long as Game Level meets the category and Extend/Life keeps the default setting: I don't see an issue changing the others for the benefit of the speedrun.

Thread: Loads on seventh generation consoles

Started by: EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly

I believe Microsoft took pride at the time for having the most powerful console out of its generation. I would assume 360 just handsdown is the faster system between the two.

Thread: Should you continue a run if its going to be higher than your PB?

Started by: Jurgen322Jurgen322

the answer is both yes and no, depending on whom you are as a runner. There's really no right pick, as much as just personal preference.

I'm personally against it, we have waaaaay too many categories as it is.

Thread: Someone posts a run, but is it them?

Started by: jamesjames

What I see is someone identifying a rare but lets say a problem that could in practice happen. So can we also present a reasonable solution and do something about it, or just accept that its out of our hands to realistically control this variable?

You identified a problem, great! Is it solvable?

Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

@R0mainR0main Just to clarify, because I had a hunch I'd see a post from this guy in here. Every decision I've made in regards of this particular runner: Have been thoroughly discussed with @Toad22484Toad22484

There are several red flags from his submissions and I've gone above and beyond in explaining what is required from him. He then proceeds to ignore most of my advice come emulation setup or showing legitimacy.

Thread: All Medallions - Should we have a Glitchless category?

Started by: TenkaTenka

Well first of all, I don't see a glitchless category PERIOD. So since nobody's actually asked about that yet, I don't see a point to actually make this "All Medalions Glitchless" category.

Its a pretty niche game to begin with, I wouldn't bother with any of this until the community grows and seems to advocate for these changes.

If it were me, I'd prob add a little mod note in the edit tool that says "makes use of the infinite jump...." and IF in the future, there were to be categories made: Just throw runs in their rightful place respectively. That's my take on it so far.

Safe to assume you have every console released in the history of ever? I mean you didn't specify so I imagine you have absolutely everything.

Good job! Honestly I'm just happy you did it with Bizhawk mGBA. Far too many GBA boards still allow VBA.. Nice to see someone actually did research for the rules.

There's no universal agreement for the NES community that it is or isn't. Some leaderboards will accept it, others won't. I personally believe its more accurate than some other emulators accepted and in use right now. But there's no definitive real answer for you.

Thread: Can I submit a single run to 2 different categories

Started by: SuperStarWaySuperStarWay

Generally, if the vod meets the requirements for both categories then yes, you can submit to both.

100% against this idea. It would just result in people creating useless meme categories for free records. Quality before quantity people.

Thread: Can I use analog sticks on retro games?

Started by: BordermonzterBordermonzter

I'm aware of the NES Advantege, I didn't get the feeling like that's what OG poster was leaning towards though. Considering the broad question is analog sticks (plural) for retro gaming generally.

My point still being that it should be close to OG hardware release. If there's a 2-stick controller for this retro system he's thinking about then I see no issue with it of course.
