Sorry for posting a tad late =p
Anyway, seems like this is officially the SMW Randomzier Speedrunning Contest this month?
So how exactly are we doing this?
Firstly, a discord has been set up for chatting/etc. during the contest.
Talking in the discord isn't mandatory, it's just for fun.
The speedrunning contest will function as follows:
1. Timezones suck. With that said, the pending time on sunday will be the tried and tested "kinda late for europe, kinda early for australia" time which almost works if you don't mind waking up at 5am or staying up late at night.
This means the event is gonna start at 9PM BST / 4PM EDT.
2. 10 minutes before the event starts, I'm gonna post the patch for the rom. Everyone has from then to download and patch it, and make sure it works, but you can't start til the event starts.
3. Once you finish the race, you need to either message me in discord or send me a private message that you finished at that time. This should be done exactly as you finish in-game, before sending me a video or anything else.
4. At any time after the race, I'll need a video of you speedrunning the game, so be sure to be ready to record one when the race starts.
General rules are as follows:
1. The race is 'Finished' after beating the final boss and triggering the credits.
2. No tools can be used, including savestates, slowdown, fast forwards and rewinds.
3. In order to qualify as a winner you need to message me as soon as you finish the race, and upload a video of your speedrun. Otherwise you won't be able to place with everyone else.
Current signed-up list (Fortunately this won't be necessary to organize this time, but it's good practice to be on it):
If you have any questions, drop em here.
