Thread: Is a tutorial needed?

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

I hear from a lot of people that they avoid this game simply because there's no video tutorial, despite them thinking the game itself looks fun from having watched other people run it.

I myself avoided this game for about 11-12months and kept holding off til someone made one. Turns out, I still ended up choosing to run this despite the lack of one. My own personal conclusion is that the game doesn't have too much crazy stuff to really desperately being in need of a tutorial, compared to say Metroid NES where there's alot of off-screen inputs for them screenwraps.

Kabuki is pretty straight forward, should anyone have questions about it then reach out to the community! Callumbal and Mithical were very helpful in answering any of the few questions I had. I would gladly lend a helping hand to new runners and im sure Butz would as well.

But the main thing I want people to understand is: Not every game truely requires a video guide on how to beat it, don't be afraid and don't deny yourself this awesome and fun title!

Im always under the impression that this "challenge run" belongs on youtube and not on SRC. Im well aware there are boards whom for whatever reason, adds low% for those few handful of people wanting to duke it out for a free wr. But generally I do not consider it speedrunning as much as just a challenge.

If people want better times then go PC for free PB since its out and its faster. Most people should have the option to go PC and there's no bs with patches or a very demanding title compared to other releases today. Cluttering up the board with 5 different versions of the game is the last thing I wanna see.

@Liv Boy rejected, rules updated, and dag nabbit... I mean I'll hold on to the mod title without going rogue about it, doing what I can, but stay tuned for more cases like these in the future - im sure 🙄

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

Started by: GyooGyoo

So some weeks ago, I reached out due to lack of activity from previous mod on https://www.speedrun.com/The_Mask - your response was to make me one, which I advised against due to lack of knowledge when it comes to the job of it. Well we got a submission in - only problem is that this was played on some emulator with "RetroAchievements", this is a new thing for me and I dont know about accuracy. Its not a competitive time so its not a big deal, but I have no idea what to make out of it.

I'd still hope that you'd assign someone with more experience than I when it comes to moderation to help out in these matters. Rantron still isn't reliable since he can go off grid for weeks, and he moderates like 500 games...

Edit: The run itself is legit from what I can tell, I've just never experienced this platform before and have no idea what software was used and if its been looked into

Thread: About Timing Runs

Started by: ZimondZimond

We had issues defining this during the week of learning the game for RGR, and the purple bubble were too hard in practice to accurately get a timing for to begin with.
I ended up going by Joka's example, hitting with a -0.85 on what seems to be the most consistent way of timing the game from an RTA standpoint. If that needs to be added with 0.03 though, that'd be new for me. But I find using that spot as a starting point is the easiest.

If mods would add it under level leaderboards inside this already existing game board, I dont see why not. I enjoyed going through these myself, like you said - the in-game boards are typically always hacked from day 1.

@Bokoblins I'm scared :'( I have no experience in regards of frame counting and whatnot, I would not advice this to be a permanent solution as I dont really see myself as qualified honestly. I did update the current WR since it was beat by the same guy whom previously held it - should be a legit run but I would be unable to tell.

I do need to test out the game a bit more to determine when character control is lost for timer to stop for defining rules, but at some point - even the current WR should be re-timed as such. He seemingly starts timer upon character control, but timer should be including stage select as you have control during that portion already.

Cant get ahold of Rantron for The Mask. SRC inactivity for 18 days, no responses on twitch or discord. I know the guy moderates a ton of games and I would rather see someone else take his place to lighten the burden if possible (i dont have myself in mind for this though). There's an improved WR time by the current WR holder that was set years ago and should be added, likewise I've wanted to discuss defining rules for the game. I know its adviced to also create a forum thread on the game page itself before resorting to this page, but near 3w inactivity and no responses on discord/twitch will hopefully be enough to have someone look into this.

Ya im having the same issue (using google chrome). The play console disappears for twitch vods when I try to view runs. If I manually go into runners profile and open their twitch account, looking up the video myself - it works perfectly.

Can't watch it from SRC somehow though.

Thread: Rules for controllers?

Started by: MartinFWMartinFW

I mean its pretty common sense. Imagine emulating an actual NES controller. Dont use turbo buttons and dont bind keys so 1 key = A+B+up+Select or anything an actual NES controller can't do in real life

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
