Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

With the first option, TAS wouldn't restrict anything. With the second option of a rework where the rules make sense, TAS would allow every tool usage that could be replicated by frame optimizing the game.

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

That is the case for virtually every single popular game on speedrun.com. I don't know what more to tell you but is exactly the case. https://www.speedrun.com/pkmnredblue https://www.speedrun.com/sm64 https://www.speedrun.com/oot Scroll down to the category and then click on rules.

Re: Adding NPCs to party list // rule against targetting in ways other than those provided by the game itself

But what if it allows you to see Griffs health to quick target and heal them. I wonder if we should allow this tool assistance in a category not called tool assisted or if we should count it as tool assistance. It's a hard decision and can't make sense unfortunately. If only there was a way to decid...

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

Of course you can, and these are not arbitrary decisions. The whole point of separating Standard from TAS was to separate quality of life features most players enjoy playing with from an indiscriminate 3rd party tool free for all. What those 3rd party QOL features are was a subject of long debate w...

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

So what are the features against your taste? Targeting ghosts and sending dialogues to unresponsive reapers are amongst the only things impossible to do without cheating in the unmodified game, hence the second poll option of "changing categories". Features as they currently are make no sense becau...

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

My opinion: 1. Merge standard and TAS: I actually like this, because the current ruleset is terribly arbitrary. However, I expect people will complain that this basically forces people to use the "bad" stuff (e.g. targeting minipets, minimap targeting) to be competitive. First, why is minimap targe...

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

Are you trying to get me to understand the point I myself made? I only included the possibility of changing the record rules to a differentiation between tool assistance to make things easier and tool assistance to enable doing things that are otherwise impossible (cheating). I myself don't care, bu...

Re: Reworking record categories (pure, standard, tas)

Just a suggestion in case people want to keep a differentiation between using tool assistance to do things faster or with less effort, compared to using tools to do things that are otherwise impossible in the game.

Cheating is what you call that in other games.
