TSC Marathon 2014
« on: May 05, 2014, 07:33:22 PM »
So yeah time this was brought up again. This is to see who is interested in participating, if there’s enough interest then the marathon will go ahead. We’re aiming do this sometime in August, so we'll have about 3 months to organise it. Since the last marathon we’ve had several new Sonic games added, so it would be great to have those in. I have put the games list in here. If you don’t see the game you want to participate in, then just offer it and I will add it to the list. In your post, state what game(s) you want to speed run, what sort of run, what your estimation is and any donation incentives.

EDIT: Please offer games that are either Sonic or by Sonic Team.

offering: Sonic Labyrinth



EDIT:

I would also offer Sonic Colours - Gameland Stages, as it's nice, short, and shows a much different level design from the Egg Shuttle. They're very different.

I'd do Sonic Heroes Chaotix's Story, but no promises how my net will be when we move out of our current house

I MIGHT want to do SADX, but we all know how salty the game makes me... So that's a small possibility. If no one else offers, anyways

Sonic Riders (GCN) - All Stories - 50 minute estimate

Fun game.  Dunno if I should do the run with large skips or what.  It's sorta weird with the pause buffering required (I'm just thinking entertainment value here).  Thoughts?

There are at least a few games on this list I could potentially do, but as for games not on the list, SRB2 single player? I personally would play as Tails. Maybe wads for donation incentives? Not sure who'd want to do those though lol
~Sonic Lost World Top 10~
Primary Goal (as of 12/1/14): Dabble into some easy things. Mostly Sonic Chaos, might go back to CD11/Lost World at a later date but most likely not. I'm not that invested in this stuff anymore :V
Secondary Goal (as of 12/1/14): Smash is love, Smash is life

I'd be up for Sonic 06 Silver's Story (No MSG or Any%). If there's any interest in ASRT Any% I could do that too (although it would be PC, which is less entertaining due to lack of glitches).

Silver's Story No MSG estimate is 1:15:00
Silver's Story Any% is 20:00
ASRT Any% is 1:40:00

For Sonic Heroes I'm willing to do either Team Sonic's story or Team Chaotix's story and for Sonic Colours I can offer an Egg Shuttle run.

Estimates (with plenty room for goofs)
Team Sonic - 1:20:00
Team Chaotix - 1:05:00
Egg Shuttle - 1:10:00

Edit: Oh and the only thing I can think of donation incentive wise is a bad sing-a-long during the credits for Sonic Heroes and perhaps a bid war between the 2 teams.

ASRT is cool but if we do Multiplayer we'll have to go with the majority console like last time. I have PC and 360 so that's ok. I could also do a glitched run of World Tour on the 360, My best time is 1:27 and estimate would be 1:45~ (accounting for certain glitches failing).

I'd also be up for any other multiplayer game, like Puyo.

If I still ran Lost World I could have done that but at this point it's probably best left to someone like Froken or DsS, unless of course you're not just looking for complete speed.

Championships: Sonic Unleashed DLC.

Shadow the Hedgehog Neutral - (25:00 [because it could crash lol])

Sonic Riders ZG - All Stories (50:00) [Not entirely sure since there aren't many skips implemented into Story Mode]

EDIT: Adding to my list, Sonic R Any% No OOB (Est: 10:25)

I really wish I could make it, but I would love to see Sonic Unleashed any%, the estimate would be 3:30:00-4:00:00, but it would be cool to see!

I can offer the following games:

1) Sonic 1 (2013) Tails or Knuckles any% (25:00)
2) Sonic 2 (2013) Tails any% (30:00)
3) Sonic CD Tails any% (25:00)
4) Sonic and the Black Knight any% (45:00)
5) Sonic Chaos Sonic or Tails any% (15:00)
6) Sonic Triple Trouble Sonic or Tails any% (25:00)

Estimates for Sonic 1 (2013), Black Knight, Chaos and Triple Trouble will go down a bit once I have de-rusted. Sonic 1 and 2 (2013) will be character war donations. I'll do a music war donation for Sonic CD. For Sonic Chaos and Sonic Triple Trouble if no one else offers Sonic, I'll do a character war donation for them. If someone does offer then I would like to still do the character war donation with them.

I'd like to take the opportunity to make up for 2012 and stream S3K. I have a high-end computer built, so streaming should be a cinch.

I just need someone to show me what to do.

Just getting set up with some decent (but also free) streaming software. I don't know if the stuff I was using in 2012 is still relevant or not.

I guess it would be a good idea to go ahead and practice from my laptop.

I'd be up for:
Sonic 1 (Genesis)
Sonic Pocket Adventure
Sonic Generations (Will be on Xbox so significantly slower than PC and would require a 1:20 time slot)
Sonic 2 (Master system - a race vs flying fox would be pretty entertaining for this)

Games I'll do if no one else volunteers
Sonic 2 (Genesis) - Will happily do this if no one better volunteers (no idea how good Combo is)
Sonic 3&K (As Sonic) - This would take a lot of practice though as Sonic's so inconsistent, if someone else volunteers to do Tails or something like that then count me out for this one
Sonic Colours - Would be more than happy to run this
Sonic 1 Master system
Sonic 3D Blast
Ideally I'll run a max of 5 games, and that's probably pushing it heh.
I'll do a hack too for bonus day, like sonic classic heroes

EDIT: Totally forgot S1GBA
And I'd be up for spinball too

SDM: Well I use OBS which is free and pretty easy to use. I can help you out with that, if this goes ahead.

Something else I should've added earlier, which was I would like to try and get some stuff that hasn't been seen yet, but not necessary. Such as Shadow the Hedgehog hard mode, Sonic 06 Team Attack Amigo and I can't remember if the DLC from Unleashed was done or not.

Since the talk has come up, I should make it known that MainMemory from Sonic Retro put the original music back in the PC version, and beyond that, it's very easy to dress up the MIDIs with soundfonts now that it's not the year 2000 anymore. That link also has another link to the HQ hack that allows for custom soundtracks, so it could go even further. The PC version would actually be a viable option and could be an incentive for soundtrack donations since we can customize it completely with the HQ hack. $20 for replacing Carnival Night with Numa Numa or something, perhaps? $20 for Hard Times Ice Cap? The only thing I'm aware of that doesn't work on PC or Saturn is the horizontal wrap in Marble Garden 2, as the PC and Saturn ports of the game have a different behavior for going over the ceiling that doesn't allow the zip. It actually opens up a nifty trick in Launch Base 2, though, although I believe there's already a horizontal wrap there that negates this advantage.

I do agree with not using Gens, though, especially after our long discussions about emulator accuracy. The PC version would be an official port, but if we're emulating, Regen and Fusion would be the emulators of choice for accuracy and even have better default screen filtering than Gens. They also don't enable the "better" (read: worse) PSG interpretation by default, although I'd think anybody here would be smart enough to disable that.
