Thread: 2 minor tips for 4-2 and 8-2 I haven't seen mentioned

Started by: threecreepiothreecreepio

^^^ this is not true. It is possible to press two buttons on the Dpad, this is used legitimately all the time in runs. Left + right is specifically banned because it's impossible to do on an original controller.

Hi, I have had a few runs waiting to be verified for smb special for months (one of them the WR). I know others have as well. The mods are simply not around. Hoping I could be added as mod. https://www.speedrun.com/smbspecial

Thread: How does one become mod?

Started by: xeroxfiendxeroxfiend

Hey when the mods for a game are completely inactive, what do you do? Could I appeal to become a mod somehow?

My load time between the peach screen and the 9-1 screen is 3.367 seconds.

Thread: Load times for All Stages and New Game All Stages

Started by: xeroxfiendxeroxfiend

I noticed after timing an All Stages run that there is a load time that was unaccounted for in the rules. It is the load that happens between the end of the 8-4 end screen (peach screen) and before the 9-1 screen.

Thread: Japanese NES Mario Trilogy Any%

Started by: xeroxfiendxeroxfiend

We could do that I suppose. I understand that the NWW rule feels a bit arbitrary, but I just feel like a lot more runners will run it if it's NWW. Also I don't think it's that close to Marihour. Excluding SMB2USA, SMW and SM64 makes this very very different. Edit: Also the MariHour specifies NWW for SMB3, so there's a precedent for it.

Thread: Japanese NES Mario Trilogy Any%

Started by: xeroxfiendxeroxfiend

I've been running a category that I've been calling the Japanese NES Mario Trilogy. It's SMB1, SMB2J, and SMB3. I think it has been a ton of fun. I have wanted to do a multiple Mario game speedrun for a while and started learning all four any% but I just couldn't get into SMB2USA. This category is shorter (and sweeter) than all four, and makes a lot of sense as a premise I think. Here's the link to my PB: Let me know what you guys think. 🙂 Edit: Thought I should clarify that SMB3 would be a no wrong warp run.

Thread: Any% D-4 FDS

Started by: xeroxfiendxeroxfiend

Recently I've been running Any% D-4 on Allstars. It's a great category (with the exception of D-3). I was thinking that it would be awesome if there was a separate category for FDS. I would run this and could see many others being interested as well. I suppose you would wait for the fanfare at the end of 8-4, hit start to go back to the title screen and then hold a + Start. (obviously 8 stars would be needed) It's a tiny bit awkward during that transition, but it's not that bad. The route would be very different from the Allstars version and D-3 isn't such a nightmare. Seems like a lot of fun. Thoughts?

If a glitch like this occurred and the run was completed, would it be considered valid?
