This Fairy Glade 100% IL is a really interesting one, because it would be technically infeasible without the glitch that allows for early access to the Echoing Caves. Well done Darnok. :up:

And the series continues. :) It's good to see the F8 slowdown technique you described earlier used twice in the Canopy.

Very good run from Payman, I compared the segments with Darnok_PL's run in the previous post and it's even faster! Of course, the time is longer because you can't skip custscenes on N64...

Heh, we will see. :D I didn't play those 100% ILs as those are exactly the same as segments in my Any% run. ;)

You mean the full run right? Because I saw no entries from you for Any% ILs of the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava and the Top of the World.

Yes, I've meant a full-game Any% run - many of the levels are played with all lums, because I need them - therefore I didn't feel like replaying the same levels as 100% ILs. :D

Could you not submit those sections as ILs?

Hmm, as long they do not take any advantage from being played in a full-game run (like having golden fist), they should be fine. However, segments in my full-game do not have to be perfect - like they would in an IL run.

A new world record, three years after the previous one! And almost four minutes shorter, that's great. Congratulations Lannreid! 🥳

That's a pretty impressive time, but the missing 1:34 to beat Darnok_PL's record won't be easy to find.
