Is there anyone who isn't to good at doing major glitches and sequence breaks, but would want to have a race for practise?

I'd be in. I've never done an any%, I think it would be fun. The only thing is that I can't stream or record in good quality, and I have no idea if that's required. If it's not. the only thing I'd have to do is remember the date and time of the race.

I'd like to do it, but I don't know if I have much time .
Also, what game would it be?

Just go to speedrunslive.com or #speedrunslive irc, racing is actual very casual, and the community is friendly and easy to get started in! Racing is a great way to practice, and in OOT and MM some of the random-generated objectives like bingo and cosmosis are great for learning new tricks! Thats how I learn stuff! Smiley

Streaming is not required for 99% of races, but if you have a suspect time, you could get asked to provide proof. But most likely this wont happen to you if you dont expect to set any amazing times.

I can't do OOT. I don't actually have it. I could if I got it on VC, but I doubt that'll happen. I could do MM though.

Okay, so MM then? awesome, I just have to get my N64 back from my buddy and make a speedruns live account! Then just start practicing. This should definitely be part way through spring break.

Spring break?!? That was back in march... Do you mean something like May long weekend? Or is your spring break way later than ours?

My spring break starts Monday. I'm in New Hampshire, U.S. If no one else has vacation next week, I guess we could do it next weekend...

I'm in Canada, so I don't have a vacation next week, although next weekend will be fine. What day and time works best?

Well, for me actually this saturday afternoon would be best. Actually, now that I think about it, I can't do the saturday after, so...
I can drop out of this one if we can't find a time that works.

We never actually managed to do this, so perhaps we can try it this weekend? I got a new TV and it has too much input lag though, so I'm prepared for a time over three or four hours DX

It all depends on how much homework I have to do this weekend, but if it's not too much, then by all means, I'd love to join! Also, a couple weeks ago I bought OoT for VC, so I could race on that game now too Tongue
