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

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Pretty much every other category is outdated though, with possible exception for Leon Boss Rush as well.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

For those whom missed the controversy and drama that was in discord earlier today - I would hold off on answering for now until shit is sorted out quite frankly

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

I think its related to the bug, the date fits from what I can tell. My own run is gone as well actually, granted I DID export it to youtube in time so the footage is not completely lost.

Ended up catching StuckinaPlate randomly during a stream and he referenced to errors tutorial for the Big 20. For now, I added it to Guides - if its outdated then someone may wanna look into that. But for now, I'd say its better than nothing.

Shouldn't "Darkwing Duck Series" be part of the "Disney Series" together with the other classic disney capcom installments like mermaid, rescue rangers, ducktales and so forth..?

How is there no information out there on this classic? Maybe it was done for an event and there could be some explanation for mechanics or enemy behavior, but there's nothing on SRC??

I could consider running this at some point in the future, but anything up til then will be greatly appreciated inbefore run attempts.

once your inside the wall, hold right, unpause, let go of right, press left when you're about to go off camera from the zip. The zip can be impossible or up to 2 frame window depending on what line setup you got prior. If you have a shitty save state to practice on, that might be a problem. Assuming the camera is fine, do as explained.
