PS1 - 100% in 01h 57m 00s by Payman - 40th place

I had a rough start with the game due to rust and never running the game before, but I was starting to get more comfortable with the game when getting to Blue Mountains. Honestly after doing something like this, I'm motivated to learn Rayman 1 speedrunning in the future but I need to take the time to study the game so look forward to my runs with Rayman 1 on the Playstation.

The only difference it has compared with the Any% category is that the Memory Card Manipulation (MCM) is not allowed :D
You can learn more about the MCM by watching this video, it's pretty interesting! :D

Yeah, they basically renamed the "Any%" category "100%" (since you need all the cages) and the new "Any%" allows for MCM.

Didn't 100% use to refer to collecting all the Tings and such? How was that renamed then?

Seems to be called "Max%":
Goal
Beat the game after collecting:
  • All 102 cages
  • All 11 magicians
  • All 2119 Tings
  • All 65 lives
  • All 112 P Orbs
  • All 82 Fist powerups
  • The extra infinite helicopter powerup in EP
  • You also have to beat all bosses
Rules
  • Video is required
  • Setting up speed storage prior to the run is not allowed
  • You can use any version of the game
  • Mistakes are allowed. Only the WR has to be 100% Valid
  • Use the following ROM to play the game: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_lUIvO ... sp=sharing This rom will show you an overview of every collectable. You can press select to toggle between total and screen values.
Timing starts & Ends
  • Same as any% of your version choice
Not a great choice of name, but at least the rules clarify what all those categories stand for.
