Would love to speedrun this game!
« on: September 24, 2016, 12:46:56 AM »
ok hi so i'm brand new to this, but i find speedrunning really cool and i'd love to get into it.

so i thought; what better way than to start out with one of my favourite zeldas of all time?

i've watched plenty of speedruns, and i'd honestly be willing to try any category of this game. if there's any that you guys would consider easier to start with, then maybe i should go with that for my first try at speedrunning something.

i'd need someone to walk me through the game and how to do everything, preferably via skype call or something. then maybe i can have races with people when i actually git gud hahaha.

let me know if any of you would be interested in this! i currently have the english version of the game on the n64. i don't remember which version of the game i have, so i don't know how many glitches i'll be able to do.

thanks in advance to everyone who replies!

Welcome to the community

I'd recommend you watch some tutorial videos on youtube. You can learn over skype, but it's been difficult in my past experiences trying it. The category you want to run is completely up to you. Do you want a shorter run? A longer one? One with lots of difficult glitches? Personally I started with Any% a few years ago before GIM was found. If you're looking for something a little longer perhaps you'd like Any% No IM/WW or Any% No WW.

Here's some youtube tutorials that I've watched and learned a lot from over the years. Ocarina of Time MST Speedrun Tutorial: Child Section by ZellyZel Any% Tutorial for Beginners by Tokyoboi (old route, but good video) New Route MST Tutorial for Beginners Part 1a by Tokyoboi (also old, but good video)

You'll probably want to play on emulator while you learn so that you'll have savestates. This makes practicing hard glitches very easy. As far as console goes the Wii VC release of the game is used for most categories that don't require version 1.0 and 1.1 exclusive glitches. To run version 1.0 or 1.1 you have to play on the N64 as they were only ever officially released for that system.

Good luck and have fun :)
