LADX 100% Category?
« on: January 19, 2013, 08:53:02 AM »
Hey guys, I'm a new Zelda runner here, and I've been getting into running a few of the 2D Zeldas for now.

I've noticed that on the leaderboards, Link's Awakening has an option for a 100% category, but there are currently no records for it. Is there actually a 100% definition for this game?  And if there is, why hasn't anyone done it yet?  I can't find any videos for it or anything.

This run has been done, giuocob has the record, Im not sure what it is though. If youre wondering about learning ladx, he is the guy to ask, he has an any% tutorial on twitch and he is a very helpful guy that Im sure is willing to teach you if you ask  :)
when i grow up, i wanna be just like taylortotftw

LADX 100% requires:

-Collect all 8 instruments and beat the game
-Have 14 hearts at the end (3 initial, 8 containers, 12 heart pieces)
-Have all 12 inventory slots filled (basically required to finish the game anyway, but whatever)
-Obtain the level 2 sword, shield, and bracelet
-Get all item capacity upgrades (powder, bombs, arrows)
-Obtain the red or blue tunic (must get it by beating the color dungeon)
-Obtain the magnifying lens and trade something for the boomerang (shovel recommended)
-Get all 12 photos
-S+Q allowed by default; up+down,doghouse,map glitches banned

I may actually start running this again. My best time right now is a 1:58 but there is vast room for improvement.

giuocob: You should do a tutorial video for 100% like you did with Any%, if you ever get the time/desire to start running that category again.  That tutorial video was extremely useful, and it helped me a ton with starting my own runs.  I'd love to start doing 100%, but I feel like trying to route it out myself would be take a lot of effort for a sub-par route, hahaha.

Also, I'm not sure if anybody who actually edits the leaderboards themselves will read this/where to go to voice this, but I feel like they should make some changes to the leaderboards for LA if possible.  Especially getting 100% to function, and making a split on version for Gameboy and GBC, to separate original and DX versions besides writing it in the description.

I would actually really like to see the tutorial for Any% so that I can see what I can actually do about the Rooster Skip...  Link please?

Also, thanks Giuocob.  I'm gonna see if I can develop my own strats for it and try some runs of it.  I feel that we need times for the Leaderboards.

Here's a link to the Any% tutorial.  He does a separate tutorial on the Rooster skip after the run, IIRC.

Just bumping this to say anybody who wants to know the route to 100%, Giuocob has a tutorial video up of that as well.

Additionally, if anybody is interested in a physical route map for Any% no s+q, or 100%, I have word document route maps that I'd be glad to send to you.  Just hit me up via PM on here or twitch (username: Cransoon)
