I noticed that there's thousands of SMW speed runners here, that gain there skills from everything they learn here.
So I'm hosting a Super Mario World Speed run contest, where contestants actually post a video (link) of themselves speed-running Super Mario World. And in the end... A winner!

Rules:

1. Timer starts as soon as you select the "1player" option at the beginning of the game.
2. Absolutely NO HACKING. (duh)
4. Using Special World to get to Bowser's front door, is prohibited, and any submissions that consists of it, will be disqualified on site, as if they were never there. You would be asked to re-run it, without the use of Star Road.
5. Tricks, glitches, and such are fine as long as:
- No tricks or glitches are spammed
- If your gonna use a glitch, make sure it doesn't make anything unfair for other contestants. If your not sure, and/or uneasy about whether we might accept a certin glitch you have in mind... It's smartest not to risk it.
- No glitches are used to skip some chunk of the game. Especially things like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zazzunvNji8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zazzunvNji8

will be rejected)

4. I don't wanna see any contestants skipping any worlds, for that might make things unfair, to those who don't skip any. Now... what you can do, is use secrete exits that lead from a world, to the next, with out completing it. As long as you use each world to your advantage some how, your safe. That is, every world except Star Road. (Though, I don't see why you would use it anyways... Star Road takes you to the special world, where, in the end, just teleports you back to Yoshi's House.) - If any body disagrees, or has a suggestion with this rule, please don't hesetate to post your thoughts.

Those of you who want this rule back, please please please let me know!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Are TAS Speed Runs Allowed?


Answer: There are 2 catigories. "TAS" and "NON-TAS". So yes, they are allowed. But, you must make it clear that it is a TAS speed run. Put in parenthesis, "(TAS)" (Without quotes) at the very top of your submission post, right next to "My Submission". The reson for this is, TAS and NON-TAS will be judged and such, seperately, making it fair to those who dont use TAS.
_____________


Submissions are to be posted in the SMW Speed-Run Contest: Submission Thread . Make sure to put at the very top of your post:"My submission"(without quotes) with a link to your youtube upload, (or what ever upload) of it, so that we know. Other wise, unless your lucky, you might be missed. Always state with your submission post whether it is TAS or Non-TAS

Do NOT use Zsnes to record your SpeedRun. Because the video would be so long, it would almost always desync. If you don't have a choice, I recommend using Snes9x-rr, a special build of Snes9x that is specifically made to prevent desyncs.
______________
Only post your submission once.
The first to get their submission posted will receive a gift card to use at GameStop.
______________
Judging:
It's pretty simple, really. Who ever has the least amount of time from the moment they select the "1player" option, to the very last strike on Bowser, resulting in the defeat of Bowser, is the winner. Part of the judging, will be done as a tie between the number of exits found, and time it took. Ex: If you passed a lot of levels/exits in little time, that's better then someone who got less levels done, in the same amount of time, and still beat the game. So basically, time/#exits found. Also the smoother the game play, the better your chances. Technique, and (of course) speed, will raise your chances too.

If judges are under the impression that you submitted a TAS Speed-Run as non-TAS, you will be disqualified on the spot, and notified. We will be able to tell because only in TAS, you can command the game within a 15th of a second. So don't worry about making false impressions.

Total Amount of Judges so Far: 3

-Protoman

Wait, I got a few questions.
Is is supposed to be tool-assisted speedruns or just normal speedruns?

Are we supposed to 100% Super mario world?
You have to at the very least, come into contact with evey world except star road. How you go about doing that, is up to you. But keep in mind that this is being judged, in a way were, if two people got the same time record, but one of them did a couple more levels then the other, he would take it. So, the more levels/exits, the higher your chances.

I dont actually know of TAS too well, but i was reading about it, and by the way it sounds, im gonna have to say it isnt supported. Since i still dont know much about TAS, If anybody has any resons for this restriction against them being lifted, please post them, and ill take them into consideration.

TAS = Tool Assisted Speedrun. Basically abuse every tool to be the fastest. However if you expect peoples runs to be done tool-less (or done in one try), put a rule saying "Do not use any tools" or "No Tool Assisted Speedruns".

I have a question: Doesn't the Special World count? You have to go in the star road to get to the Special World so... is the Special World going to be skipped?

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.




Do u think more people would apreciate me allowing TAS? If so, ill consider it.

And about special world,

I actually did that, because i dont really see the point in using star road. All it does is take u to special world, which, in turn, will end up teleporting you back to yoshi's house. You could get color yoshis there i guess... But is there really any other point?

Maybe you could do a TAS and non-TAS catagory?

Star Road allows you to skip from Donut Secret House all the way to Front Door in 5 levels. It's huge in the speedrun world, absolutely vital.

Also, just noting, I'm a judge for this contest now.
In SMW, you have to work up to a level, and find the secrete exit unlocking star road from there too, before you can can actually use that as a short cut from a different area. Right? Otherwise if you teleport to that star from Star Road, your stuck there, you can't move from that spot, and your only choice is to teleport back. Star Road isn't forbidden or anything, it's just not really that nessesary. Unless I'm wrong...

There's a secret exit in each Star Road level which advances you to the next.
Hmm... I think Star Road/World should not be used in this speed run to be honest, The game can be beaten pretty fast that way. A lot of people can fly through star world at a fast rate, and be right at Bowser's Door.

These guys play No Star Roads.

Unless of course, you guys want this to be as short as possible, I would be cool with Star Road. All I am saying, Star Road will kinda... suck up all the fun out of the runs I think.

@Egadd: I think what he means is that when you teleport from "Star World", you cannot access the rest of say "W2" from Star World, unless you accessed Star World from that world's Star Road... I think that is what he means.

Yeah... That's what I was thinking. I'd like to recall this from the instructions list:

I'm neutral either way, so it doesn't matter to me. It's judged by (Time taken)/(Levels done) so even if we did Star Road, a person who does each level faster with a 100% run might beat a person who did Star Road.

I'd advise allowing both a TAS and a Non-TAS category. Not only will it allow a more diverse audience to participate in your contest, it will hopefully make the contest more fun to do as well.
Oh woops, I forgot about this. I'll be sure to make time for this.

Also, I don't understand the confusion. This is a speed-run, and we're not allowed to use the Star Road route. No TAS, all other non-glitching routes are acceptable. Unless you really want a TAS category, eh, I don't care about that but do what you want.

I'm considering it..... I probably will, seeing how many people support the idea, but if I do, the results wont come out at the same time... Like, first the results for Non-TAS Speedruns would come out, then later, the results for the speed-runs with TAS.
I have exactly 100 posts! So awesome!

Alright, as of now, I'm alowing TAS speedruns. But, you must make it clear when posting your submission in this thread, that it is a TAS Speed run... not a normal one. Maby put in parantheses "(TAS)" (without quotes) at the very top of your submission post, right next to "My Submission" would help.

Hey guys, we need one more judge! Who wants to be one? It's not like it is going to be that hard, all you have to do is watch videos lol. After that, we can get this thing on the road. I plan on doing my Tool-less run sometime soon.

I can not send video to youtube because of my computer, it would another solution? for example, send a file ZMV?

and , TAS is what exactly?

I am not sure if that is allowed here, but it's up to Qwholl I guess. Also, you can convert a video file to AVI and upload it on Youtube.

It stands for Tool Assisted Speedrun.
I finally have time to participate this weekend (yeah, for an entire month I've literally been that busy), but well.. I don't know if it's really worth it when not a single person has submitted any entries yet. #fim{:\}
