(originally LaP0573's post, owner changed to make tables editing easier, thank you Breakdown !)

In this thread, I'm gonna talk about Super Meat Boy, this awesome indie platformer that came out a few days ago on the XBLA, and soon on the WiiWare and on PC. I won't present it too much, if you haven't tested it, GO TRY IT NOW, it's just totally awesome.
Anyway, this game is totally suited for speedrunning, and I'm thinking about doing a speedrun on it. However, I wonder a few things. First of all, should I better run each level individually or do a single segment run of all the game ? Of course the SS would be hellishly harder, but I'd prefer the IL runs because it would allow me to perfect each level instead of making mistakes...
Next comes the question about characters. You can unlock 14 characters, some better suited to speedrun a level, some not. So should I pick the best character for each level, or should I keep Meat Boy (or another) for all levels ? I think it would be better to keep Meat Boy, and maybe separate each speed runs of the entire game with each character... ? Anyway I think Meat Boy would be more interesting.
Finally, there is one more problem : The game has replays that play when you finish a level, which would be good to record, but it also shows, at the same time, all the moments you died before you finished it, so it gets flooded with tons of suicidal characters, replays of all your previous attempts. So, I guess it would be better to record it from the spawn to the end while playing ?

I'm done with the questions, thanks !

Kaede's edit : here are the tables (originally posted at page 14)

Notice: these tables features only presumably "SDA submittable" videos, that is to say runs with 60fps ingame footage (not replays), as SDA won't accept replays for Super Meat Boy.

Single segment or Individual Levels would be accepted for the game. However, all levels must be finished before any IL runs will be accepted (they don't all have to come from the same runner though). I don't believe there are usually separate categories for different characters in a game like this, so you should use the fastest character for each level.

As for recording, I believe it should be spawn to end of playing, but I don't believe the time is actually shown in-game except in the replay and on the level select screen, which could be a problem (EDIT: Nevermind, the time is actually shown. I'm just crazy). You might need to include the replay just for timing reasons (and it would be entertaining to watch as a bloopers video). Warp Zones, Kill Screens, and Boss Fights would have to be timed manually.

I might try to record some when the PC version comes out, since I've got no way to record my 360 at the moment.
Ok, thanks. I think i'll record it on PC too since I don't have anything to do it on console. However, are you really sure about the characters ? Well, whatever..;

And one last question, should a speedrun do BOTH light and dark world ? Or is just the light world ok, since it ends the game ?
I'm not positive on the characters. The rules do state that different characters would be separate categories, so maybe I'm wrong. I was assuming it'd be setup similarly to racing games, where the fastest time wins, no matter who/what is used. 16+ categories for over 300 levels seems pretty insane.

I think all levels, including light and dark need to be submitted for an IL run. I'm not positive if levels without a timer need to be submitted with the others.
But, it's like getting the good and the bad ending of a game, you don't have to do both in a speedrun, do you ?
that Metroidvania guy
I have a feeling you're gonna be getting a lot of competition for both ILs and SS once more people start playing this game. It's a great game for speed running. Loving it already.

Anyway, about using other characters... like would you REALLY wanna do a full IL table for the bit.trip guy? He's so annoying to play as. I think with how many characters there are that it'd be pretty stupid to categorize separately for them.

As for categorizing, I think you can have ILs with ALL levels (doubt you'd split for % because warp zones are part of % but kinda keep you from finishing the stage), you can have SS any% which would obviously be fastest completion through the light worlds since that's all you need, and then 100% SS (if you could do this without deaths you are absolutely insane) which would get all A ranks in the light world and dark world, find all bandages, complete all warp zones in both light and dark worlds (basically, everything that's tracked). Although A rank in dark world might not necessarily be required for the 100% category, you'd probably wanna nail it anyway if you were submitting a run here.

Not sure about warp zone ILs since they aren't technically timed. They could be manually timed but... meh? I suppose a whole warp zone area could be one IL that's manually timed since you have to complete it all in one sitting.
Great to see people are interested in the game. Yeah, well gonna finish the game at 100% first, and I'll see if I'm able to speedrun it, thanks for your answers =)
Hi! I'm andrewg!

Hi! I'm andrewg!
Starting to post some IL times for this game. I have a feeling that eventually I'm gonna do ILs of every level. Yes, every level. Wink

Here are some notable times of mine:
Spinal Tap (7-3): 5.08
Omega (6-5) - 16.8 (no that's not a typo)

Got this game recently and it's awesome for speed running!

My two best times so far are:
The Pit (6-1): 8.32
Salt + Wound (3-2X): 8.56

I hope this game gains interest here.

Hi! I'm andrewg!
I am a bit surprised by how few people have really talked about this game. I'm completely addicted to it (and I don't even own it). I am mad that I have to wait until it comes out for Wii. I have to wonder if I'll do as well with a wiimote compared to an xbox controller for this game.

NxCy, those are really nice times. I watched your "the pit" video on youtube. Very nice work.

EDIT: Also, what's with the replay times and times on the leaderboard not matching? I just watched your 3-2X time... I hope they fix things like this.

NxCy, I think I read something like "you can keep momentum from a previous attempt." I have to try it myself sometime later, but for levels where you start running to the right, it might save time to jump off a cliff moving at full speed. I hope this isn't the case, but this was a rumor I heard.

Have some of the times already been hacked? I see some 1.xx times on this one stage where I think it takes at least 2.5 seconds to even reach Bandage girl.

Like Andrew, I'll be jumping in on this once it hits Wiiware Smiley

Hi! I'm andrewg!
We should make an SDA leaderboard just because the leaderboard for this game seems to be hacked/glitched... though I'm not sure which times we should use when the replay times differ from the leaderboard ones.

Yay!  Sounds like a solid group working on this game.  I am really excited to see what comes of this.  Smiley
My feelings on The Demon Rush
1. This game is awesome, despite only having played through some of world 1. The developers really leveled up since Meat Boy

2. Harry######'s (I don't remember the string of numbers) times are legit. He has all of the 'Splosion Man records, IIRC. I don't know if he has any records, but I just want to put it out there.

I'll join the group but Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light needs to be destroyed first (got 1st on 2 of the 14 levels now ;).
My feelings on The Demon Rush
Oh, if I join the group, it won't be until after the marathon.
Harry9397 yeah that guys awesome
but I wont be doing that much of super meat boy until they remove the 00:00's but having said that IL records dont mean that much because levels are so short and a SS?
Good luck with that.....
If you want my advice use meat boy for every level in a SS because otherwise it wont flow because you would have to change character every level from the pause screen plus if it was up to me I would want it manually timed.
look out for:
Slinky SS
khaled 13
woody (yooooow?)
on the leaderboards
Oh and yes people have hacked impossible times which is separate from the 00:00 glitch

Hi! I'm andrewg!
I don't care if the 0:00 glitch exists. Yeah, I'd most likely use meat boy because he's the fastest character and I have the best control with him. I doubt there are many levels that switching characters would save time anyway. You can generally tell what times are hacked and which are not. I would love for the game to have unglitched/unhacked times, but it's just not gonna happen with this kinda thing.

That's kinda the reason sites like SDA exist.

Anyway, I do plan a SS speedrun eventually. A little more practice with it and I think I'd do fine.

I think it would take 2 hours maybe for a 100% run? I really have no clue.
I just bought this....but it's downloading. Can't wait!
I just found out that there is a way to cheat with tim from braid and alien H, the alien H one I know how to do but tim I have no idea but we think it lets people rewind from death to the finish, obviously this will ruin it entirely if its not fixed.
I wont go near a SS unless someone does it first and I can copy but a 100% run......wouldnt that vary from platform to platform as the cotton alley is exclusive to 360 (I think?)

Hi! I'm andrewg!
I wonder if a 0 death run is even possible.

So mad that I have to wait until December to play it on wii now Sad
