Re: Remove all emulated runs from leaderboards

This is a big catch 22 situation in which either decision that is made will annoy people on either end heres where I stand on this issue. You ban emulators you whittle this community down to a few people with little chance of it getting any larger due to the requirements of streaming. You segregate ...

Emulators

Hey there quick question, where does the Colosseum and XD community stand currently in terms of using emulators? I was thinking about getting into these games at some point however don't have the capture stuff available to do console runs. I don't know how things are in terms of accuracy.

Re: Remove all emulated runs from leaderboards

I'm pretty sure werster has 1:55 with console, his 1:54 is on emu. It would be better if we'd just split the wr's between console and emulator, rather than outright banning emulator, because like Amoeba said, banning emu would remove a lot of competition. If you segregate them into two categories b...

Re: Pauses during runs.

yeah unfortunately if you pause the timer and/or the emulator it no longer classes as single segment unfortunately. Especially if you pause the emulator as you are using emulator functions that the original game didn't have, similar to using turbo functions. You cant post it on the leaderboards howe...

Re: Pokemon Emerald In 2:42:31

VBA-rr was used to get a recording of the run in the background just in case the entire stream (or part of the stream in this case) went out. I am converting it to .AVI and uploading to Youtube, but keep in mind that the files are 1GB+ and it takes me a LONG time to upload a 1GB+ video to Youtube. ...

Re: Why Yellow Should be Considered for a Switch to RTA Timi

I took that into account when I was testing the Pikachus cry, to ensure consistency I started the moment that the time turned on the trainer card, in my estimation the cry would last for 1.5 seconds and then I would have to wait for 3 seconds for the additional animations so In theory, over the cour...

Re: Why Yellow Should be Considered for a Switch to RTA Timi

OKay then heres my conclusion after a multitude of test have been completed. From my understanding in terms of everyone I have spoken to, the cutoff point for RTA to IGT is the 40 second mark. A RTA time of 2:20:32 should in theory lead to a IGT time of 2:18 while a time of 2:20:48 would lead to an ...

Re: Why Yellow Should be Considered for a Switch to RTA Timi

Im a heavy supporter for IGT however the Yellow IGT seems to be... shaky from what I've noticed and it must be down to something that we do not understand yet. I'm not a yellow runner but I am going to take all the times on the leaderboards and compare them to the IGT that was achieved and see if I ...
