Thread: Future planning, is the community dead?

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

Dang, I dont even remember I made this thread!

I'm happy to see that this community really blew up since last time I checked! With McFly breaking every record in the book, SummoningSalt covering the WR history, RGR featuring this game in their races, ONOT was held on RGL and man the new faces and progression from runners - including Kraid first runs!
With plenty of new resources to learn from, its finally time for me to pick this game up, happy I made the decision to wait with it - there's never been a more active metroid community than now and ive improved as a runner since I asked questions last year 😛

You'll see me on the leaderboard shortly!

I can confirm, not getting any notifications since 2-3 days back from any game I'm following. Likewise, sometimes when I visit a games page, the background is missing and is completely white instead. Using Chrome as a browser. I know @Sathdresh and @strizer86 have had issues as well.

Their solution would be to create 3 new game boards? If people are so against having All-Star runs under All-Stars, Id rather keep it as it is rather than creating 3 new game pages in need for moderation. I may have misunderstood what they meant there, but I'd have to put my foot down for that personally.

I will say 1 thing about SMB1 boards though, all-stars is put under misc. Maybe that could be an option, and take out the ACTUAL smb2 nes categories under a new tab?

The leaderboard could use some work for sure, I think "Any% 1 character" with sub categories would be better than what we have today.
I also personally would rather have all-star categories on the all-star board, its a bit annoying to get notifications for times I dont care about when im here for the NES game only..

But I leave that to the mods

Thread: Proposing WiiVC & EMU divide

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

I disagree with the idea of VC by default being split into emu, thats not what this topic is about skavenger. Thats prob how you can classify the idea of VirtualConsole per se, but in practice for speedrunning - the difference is severe.

I wanna hear other peoples thoughts on the matter though, as we've already had our discussion 😛

Thread: Proposing WiiVC & EMU divide

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

As pointed out here: https://www.speedrun.com/rondo/thread/hd4gx

There is seemingly half a minute disadvantage to emu runners compared to VC runners. Yet they are sharing the same leaderboards despite moderators being aware of this dilemma.

I've tried and failed to convince them to split them apart into 2 sub-categories. One for WiiVC, the other for EMU.

So it will fall upon the community of existing runners and potential future ones to make a voice heard in an attempt to change the mind of the administration for this game.

I myself find it obnoxious to keep them together when the issue is known.

Thread: Guides

Added a little something to the guides section, it was enough for me to learn the game. I considered making a video tutorial for Leon any% - but honestly DD's notes are up to date and detailed enough that anyone should be fine studying off the WR run and these notes alone.

Pretty much every other category is outdated though, with possible exception for Leon Boss Rush as well.

I dont personally care about Low% - its a small community and a very meme category, I dont PERSONALLY need to see it displayed. But if someone all of a sudden were to give a shit and wants to run it then whom am I to say "F that!" ? If someone really wants to then I'd just put it under misc.
Generally speaking though, any% and 100% is enough for "main" categories - and even those we have trouble filling up with runners as it is..

As for RTA 100% - Im not familiar with the run in that great of a detail atm so right now im not the best person to speak about it. But I think everyone should include RTA in modern speedrunning nonetheless, we dont live in the jurassic era anymore. It's also a good precaution on the off chance we might switch to it as main timer in the distant future once more runners pour in - you never know.
Either way I don't think its much effort for anyone wanting to run the game to actually include a timer - Potato PC users or lazy asses might complain. Its not like RTA timer is required for Lament of Innocence that im currently running, but I'm still using it and submitting my RTA time even though IGT is the main for that title.

Shame that it has to come to this, I've never seen anything like it through the communities i've been part of for a year of running so far. I'm greatful we had maxy for this one, willing to fight for what I believe was the just cause. Likewise ROMaster2: Much appreciated you took the time to deal with this ❤️

I hope we all can move forward with this, together!

Ya thats fair, he's likely talking about me. GUILTY!
I am in the process of learning Lament of Innocence for PS2 which is my first 3D title, I have my eyes set on DMC1 afterwards and started asking questions in discord already. Give it 2-3 months and you'll prob see my name on the board.
But sure, I can understand how that may come off as ignorant from my side - fair game.

Thread: Is Superball strat worth it?

Started by: RonSkonsRonSkons

In 99/100 cases - if WR does it, you should do it too.

Starman on 4-1 allows to not slowing down in the pirahna plant session which means you can outrun the bullet bill faster, to optimize movement in killing plants with superball in loosing as few frames as possible to begin with is deemed very hard from the explaination I've had.

4-2 Pretty much the same answer..

Now TAS does skip the starman and it makes the use for superball that you are asking for, let me know when you reach TAS level over WR holder and I'll be the first to watch your streams for WR bop SeemsGood
