€300 Rayman DSi 100% Speedrun challenge

Post by Thextera »

Hey there!

I have a challenge for you all and everyone is free to participate!

Video announcement here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqQAuQMXS2E

Rayman for the DSi is actually a pretty great version to speedrun imo and it would be great to make it at least a little bit more active! It's also pretty beginner friendly too!

So, you have until June 16, 2024 11:59 PM CET to submit a speedrun of Rayman DSi 100%!

The prize pool is €300 and will be divided by 2 groups of people: Experienced and New players. The amount of people that participate per group will decide how much of the pool goes to that group.

Experienced player
You have a time on the speedrun.com leaderboard of any version of Rayman 1. (GBC excluded)

New player
You have never submitted any version of Rayman 1 to speedrun.com. (GBC excluded)


Rules
  • All speedrun.com submissions NEED to be livestreamed. (You cannot submit locally recorded video's)
  • Recording a 3DS with webcam/camera is allowed. (you're not required to use capture software for a 3DS).
  • Anti-Dark Matters & Save file need to be shown at the end of the run. (All checkmarks need to be ticked and the file save needs to say 100%
  • Beating Mr. Sax & Mr. Skops is required to reach 100%.
  • You can submit runs to speedrun.com until June 16, 2024 11:59 PM
  • Casual playthroughs are not allowed.

Extra Bonus Incentive
The first person to beat my current PB (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KmcjJDPmXc) within the submission timeframe (June 16th) will receive a €25 bonus reward.

Prize Pool
€300 will be split among groups depending on their respective runner counts
Joining my discord will be required to claim any prizes: http://discord.gg/dHVjbdg

Any donations done to me during this event will be added to the pool.

Thanks for organizing this, it is a very cool contest. Here's some highlights of the video for those who would enjoy a summary:
  • DSi version has several advantages over other versions: It has fewer loading screens, skips can be performed to avoid entire screens or cage animations, and there are more glitches that can be exploited to save time.
  • One glitch is the “Plum Skip” which utilizes the fact that hitting a plum from close by will send it in the opposite direction.
  • Another glitch is the “Claw Skip” which is possible because the hell bar moves with you in DSi, unlike the PS1 version.
  • We go to Bongo Hills first instead of Swamps or Forgetfulness because Bongo Hills has one extra cage, and skipping a cage is possible due to another glitch.
  • We utilize damage boosts throughout the game to gain speed.
  • AIM FOR 1:16 😜
Hope I got this right, feel free to correct if needed.

The DSi challenge will be over in less than an hour. There is no more live runs going on at this moment. So I'm hereby already posting the results!

There have been 8 submissions for DSi which is a lot more than I expected. Thank you all for participating!

There is as many experienced runners as there is beginners, so the prize pool will be split 50/50.

I'll be messaging the winners!

See you in future challenges!

*Ps: I know Eric improved his PB but hasn't uploaded it. Also wouldn't have changed ranking.*

Here's the results:
