Hello, and welcome to the SMWC racing thread. This thread it here so that we can organize races of various games and hacks. Now what exactly is a race I am speaking of? Here is an example of what I mean, a SMB3 race.

Something Awful has been running races like these for the past year or so now. Having watched some of them, and having attempted a few with friends, they are pretty fun to do. I want to try setting some up with this community. You can see more examples at this guy's channel.

As a first attempt, I think it is only fitting that we try the original Super Mario World before going at any hacks or other games. A full playthrough would take a long time and I think we should aim for no longer than an hour and a half at the most. If more than a reasonable amount of people want to participant in one race (10+) we will just split it into two groups. It is also very likely races will get multiple groups anyways, if only because of timezones to make it easier for anyone.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask or to send me a PM!

Do you have to be good at SMW to do this contest? I'm not really good at speedruns but I'm doing it for fun. CST

I would certainly be interested in taking part in these, my timezone is MST.
You already know that I am interested because we have talked about it, but I'm posting here for your reference.

So long as you are trying not to die it should be fine. The focus is more on fun than actually winning anyways!

It seems EST is the majority, so let's plan using that. does next weekend work for everyone? (The 13th or 14th of April)

--------------------
So, I just made a Super Mario World Speed Run contest.... There a bit similar, you think?

With that aside, I have a question. can it just be a race between two people, instead of 6? Because my friend and I, (as let's players) are about to start a Super Mario World Versus. its the exact same concept, except it's just us two.

Send me your Mario Maker 2 levels to be featured on my youtube!

Or you could just do your own thing? since it's pretty much what you're describing. Also why ask if you can do this when you just said you already did something similar to this?

to add on, your contest thing and this are very different. Actually, your contest is just a watered-down contest version of this, and this is a collaborative race against other people playing at the same time.

The 14th won't work for me, as I have church-related stuff to do. The 13th should be fine, but only after 11:15a.

Mario World isn't the only game we will race, I just picked it first since well, this is a Mario World hacking site after all!

I agree with Losoall on this. I think what you are describing sounds a lot more fitting for personal 1v1 races and we are going for a 6+ free-for-all.

How does the 13th at 12:00-1:00 EST sound for everyone? Also if you could all post your skype usernames or PM them if you don't want everyone to have it.

--------------------
My parents are granting me an hour off to do the event, so I should be there. I'll get a Skype account set up sometime soon.
Could we see the other player's screen in the SMW races?

No. You record your screen and talk with us on skype. Afterwards I'll gather all the video files of each person's run and edit them into one video so that people can watch that.

Do we have to record our voices? My house is kind of noisy :O

Sounds like a lot of fun, I'd love to participate in one of these!

I'm from Europe, though, but I have no problem pulling an allnighter for something like this ;P (if its on a friday or a saturday)

Yes. The idea is to have a conversation (at least somewhat on topic) along with playing the game.

I do want to encourage more people to join. But please do not mess up your sleeping pattern/schedules on our behalf. Hopefully enough people in your timezone will sign up for a race which will be a lot more convenient for you. I do want you to participate, I just don't want it to be at that sort of expense.



Just as a heads up, I went and added a new requirement to the main post.

"Please send an example video here for quality assurance"

Edit: Sorry about two requests back to back.

If everyone who has signed up could start posting their skype usernames. (or if you are more comfortable PM'ing it that is fine too)I just want us to be as organized as possible early on.

Quick question, how do we link our Skype accounts?
