The true reason is that the Wii's disc drive had a ridiculous amount of different revisions, making factoring in load times for any Wii/GameCube games in speedrunning is pretty silly (and also making the no usb loader/emulator rule pretty silly, because that's also usually forbidden only because of the different load times).

It’s a shame when runners quit and delete everything. They probably wonder what the point of it all was, but that’s the essence of the human condition; strive so hard for so long for a singular fleeting moment of joy and glory that will immediately after fade away.

I like the timeline but it can be a bit blurry/pixelated at times. You could try doing it with vector art: it'll really help the quality of the visuals. Also, you could adjust the circle size when looking at close, small segments like 36:08: again, because it'll increase the quality and make it easier to visualise the different time saves

I don't understand deleting your runs. Obviously, FadeVanity is within his rights to do whatever the heck he wants to with his content. However, even if you completely walk away from gaming all together, what purpose does it serve to just throw recordings of such great skill into the dumpster?

@sonicandamyfan4ever No, actually, they have a point. If records are deleted, they can no longer be analyzed, which includes cheating analysis. This unfortunately makes all records with no video *completely* unverifiable in the present. Obviously, it doesn't necessarily prove that they *were* cheating, as there are many other reasons to delete runs. But it is certainly one easy way to circumvent it; to keep your legacy forever, all you have to do is delete the evidence and nobody can ever prove you wrong. This is just yet another example of why having video of speedruns instead of just a time is so important. So, so many cheaters were caught years and years into the future. If we lose that resource — if they delete their runs — then we can never know for sure. In fact, we will probably never even suspect anything. Video proof doesn't necessarily validate speedruns on its own, because videos *can* be edited and faked, but a total lack of it basically makes the entire record hinge on "dude trust me" logic.

@russian bot It's hard for me to take a stance here. On one hand, I agree that mental health should be prioritized in situations like this. On the other, it's really really difficult for me to justify deleting runs entirely. Even if they were used as a form of escapism, or some other negative reason, the reality is that by speedrunning you are actively committing to making yourself a part of history. Thus, by deleting your runs, you forever damage those leaderboards and make the records incomplete. To me, it's akin to a member of the Olympics deciding that all of their world records should be deleted because of their mental state at the time; while unfortunate, it is a consequence of the form chosen that it is impossible to do so without ruining a large portion of the identity of the activity itself. Regardless of any of this, I fully agree that facecam was probably too much. If it were possible, I would even say removing his voice from the videos would be the best course of action. I just believe that keeping the runs up *in some form* is vital to the medium. The runs themselves are the important part, not the reaction (though it is again unfortunate that this would be lost). Not even just from a historians perspective, but from someone who's trying to learn the routes as well, or how a certain runner played, so they can improve themselves. All of this being said, I don't know. I don't know how to handle problems like this; I've never been in a situation where I've felt so strongly about things I have put online, so I can't personally speak for the mental toil it may take on someone to view videos taken during traumatic periods of their lives. I hope you can understand that I'm not trying to be offensive, demeaning, insulting, or to say that I know any of this for certain, just that I'm just giving my own limited view on the situation.

@seasoned curlies It has been on recent videos. I do have a suggestion, tho, and that is include each players history, at least occasionally, or greyed back. It could be pretty cluttered tho, so a high-res image or pdf of it may be the only way to show it well. It would be really cool to see each player as they come into the scene, make progress, etc. while the main fight at the top of the leader is taking place down in the lowest level of the graphic.

Really love the timeline! I’d recommend looking into using vector shapes for it so it doesn’t get blurry when you zoom in, would make it look that little bit cleaner

Ahh SMBWII, i remember as a kid “inventing” speedrunning at age 6. Never thought anyone actually did it, and i was very skilled at that age, i knew the cannon strats and finished the game any% in about 45 minutes to an hour. I wonder if I could get back into it, this was by far my favorite game on the wii

Another great video. It feels funny how now the records you cover happened within the time I was already subscribed to you. Makes it feel less like "history before my time, in ye olden days" and more something actively happening and continuing to evolve. Loved the progression graph to set things into context and the "where are they now" recap of the runners at the end!

I think you could do a wonderful job at doing World Record Progression: Goldeneye. Maybe ft. RWhiteGoose for some of it since a lot of his videos explain the absolute details of a stage when beaten. But you could summarize the entire games WR history super well in one video.
