SPEEDRUN.COM LEADERBOARDS


Global Rules:

  • Timing:
    • SRC = starts upon selecting “New Game” and ends upon “CREATOR defeated” appearing on screen
      • For Any% Glitchless, time ends upon exiting the Creator fight
    • ニコ = starts upon selecting “New Game” and ends upon “See you again” (“シーユーアゲイン”) being displayed
      • This timing standard does not apply to Any%
  • Super Game Boy is allowed
  • Turbo:
    • On the English version, turbo is not allowed
    • On the Japanese version, turbo is allowed due to the NicoNico Leaderboards historically allowing it
  • Video proof is required for all runs submitted
    • All videos must have a timer displayed on screen
    • Videos that are locked behind a paywall are not allowed
  • On emulator:
    • For GB, the only allowed emulators are BGB, Bizhawk, and Gambatte
    • For GBC, the only allowed emulator is BGB with a bootrom
    • The use of turbo, speed-up, and doing anything otherwise not possible on a real console is not allowed

Conversion between timing standards will be done by ffvd_games if it hasn’t been done already.

By default, all runs performed on SGB will have their times converted to its GB equivalent. Conversion between SGB and GB will be done via this website. NicoNico runs that have applied the 2.4% penalty will be corrected.

For TA Runs:

  • Real time is used as there is no in-game timer
    • The timing standard is the same as the ニコ Standard for Any%
    • Each segment is timed individually. The final time is calculated by adding up every segment together
      • This is the equivalent of a segmented speedrun
  • A written route with your notes is required for all runs submitted
    • You must also provide exact stats for things like damage dealt, combo order, equipment changes, etc.
  • Video proof is not required, though it helps strengthen the veracity of your run
  • Turbo is allowed

As stated on the home page, if you would like your run to not be listed on this page, please DM me on Twitter and I will remove it ASAP.
