RTA means "real-time attack", which is basically the same thing as "single-segment" as far as I'm concerned (means not segmented). Start timer, finish game in one sitting, and submit your silly time.

:: Rules ::
  • Timing is (supposed to be) start of character control to end of character control (SDA timing)
  • If in doubt, follow Speed Demos Archive guidelines
  • Videos are optional and can be posted with your time on the leaderboard (feel free to ask for help with recording/streaming)
  • Emulators are allowed under the honor system (no savestates/slowdown/frame advance/fast forwarding/U+D/L+R/etc.)
  • ZSNES, Snes9x 1.43, or any weird stuff like uosnes are banned (just use bsnes, Snes9x 1.51+, or SNESGT)
  • No cheats, such as using a code for extra lives in DKC2
  • No controller modification (turbo buttons, three simultaneous directions, etc.)
  • No save warping/death abuse in order to warp somewhere unless the category rules state otherwise
  • Accidental deaths do not disqualify a run, but obviously try not to let it happen!
  • Always round down seconds, so if a run is 10:00.98, it will be posted as 10:00

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/quell-another ok doing first timed run less go
edit: finished, 2:25:02 :>
I did the ice palace twice because I forgot to fill up on magic and I got lost so actually I did it like 3 times lol
I died in first area and at ganon :<
also I had to buy 3 super bombs or something
turtle rock I completely rocked however :>
Schala
Gonna try to rock Jadin's time!
briankun
I've been told by certain ppl (LOL) that I must partake in this event.

I'm kinda in the process of moving... so once I get all moved and shit it's so on.

SO_ON.

O_o.

4:00 am attempt to beat game in under 2 hours!
also attempting ice palace bomb jump, maybe I'll screw up and the run will end right there! omg......
Eggman of the Strata
I'm really happy I'm not taking part in this because I'd be lucky to hit under 4 hours now.
Jadin
TOTALLY DESTROYED omg...
ice palace bomb jump first try, after over an hour of playing lol
felt great :D

Getting the Titan's Mitt before the Fire Rod and Hookshot? How could that possibly be fun?
Eggman of the Strata
You can sequence break in LTTP?

You definitely don't have to get the crystals in order. You do need the Hammer to access any level but 1, the fire rod to complete 5 and 7 (good idea for 6 too), and the titan's mitt to access 5-7. Also getting the cane of somaria helps a lot for 5 and 7.
Good order imo would be 1,4,3,2,6,5,7
m335h73r
the only zelda game I know of that you absolutely cannot sequence break is Adventures of Link, since you can use keys you found in one dungeon in another potentially locking you out of completing a dungeon and the game.

You don't even need fire rod for 5. Granted, getting Bombos wastes time unless you're doing 100% or someish, but it works.


WHOA wait you're saying Turtle Rock is doable *without* Cane of Somaria?

stop
m335h73r
give it a try.
Eggman of the Strata
If you're willing to take the time to learn how to go get the hammer without the candle you can do palaces 2-6 without doing 1.

You can beat palaces 5 and 6 before 4, though you do have to go get the boots from 4 first obviously.

The game can be beaten without the following "key" items: candle, cross, magic key.

Unnecessary spells are: Shield, Life, Fire, Spell.
sir nabsalot
Just got my snes emu & rom & sf4 fightpad successfully tested for zelda challenge (thanks hood). Challenge 1 is beating zelda: a link to my past by saving the princess. In honor of Jonathan Blow I will do this ironically.
CStarFlare
I went around town trying to find the GBA port of this. No luck.

I'll just download the ROM. I'll probably need a guide for my first runthrough; it's been so long : (
Schala
We're not using the GBA version anyway, so unless you wanted to use it for practice only...
Jadin
I practice on GBA version sometimes, but it's bad because the resolution is so low that it's a lot harder to do certain things...
for trinexx, you can't see his tail swing when he's about to attack
for the first dungeon you can't see the cannonballs in advance
for turtle rock you can't light two torches at the same time with the fire rod
and for one dungeon you have to go up around a corner to hit a crystal switch with a cane
CStarFlare
huh, I just kind of assumed it was more or less the same

good to know
Schala
http://strategywiki.org/wiki/The_Legend_of...ion_Differences

I don't know exactly how much faster the text scrolls in the GBA version, but that's enough to disqualify it anyway because you wouldn't be able to accurately compare times with the SNES version.

There're a lot of annoying things anyway like Link having his OoT voice.
Mazrim

Link having his OoT voice.

That is by far the worst part.

Agreed. If they'd just left that out, the GBA version would be fine, really. sad.gif

Jadin
1:40:43! less than 5 minutes from wak's SDA time :>
Schala
Finally broke 1:40.
Jadin
not caught up yet
Mazrim
Question about the bomb gap jumping trick...is there a reason you have to charge your sword to do it? You let go of the swing a couple seconds before the bomb explodes, and I can't tell if that makes a difference. Thanks. smile.gif

EDIT: Just saw the ice palace jump and you hold the charge the whole time...yeah I dunno.
Theoretically Gay
Charging the sword just makes it *a ton* easier to align Link/bomb.
Jadin
it's cause you move slower while charging sword, so if you see that you need to be 1 pixel down from where you are now, it's easier to get in position while holding the sword out. otherwise you'll move like 3 or 4 pixels in either direction accidently

Schala: So you have the record beat on speed demos archive according to OP? Thats crazy
Jadin
8 seconds behind world record !

Not really that hard to beat it, yeah.

I improved my time a few hours ago, but that's nothing compared to Jadin's new time. :<

I just got the world record, but yeah it's still improvable so I'm only a little happy!
sir nabsalot
Woooo go go marlie tang :>
Schala
Um got world record for 100% now too. Maybe I play this game too much.
Jadin
if anyone's still interested in this game we're still playing btw :> it's a lot of fun, except for the multisegment which I'm recording. I just finished dark palace (part EIGHT) (of SIXTEEN) (almost HALFway done)
Schala
Welp, 1:31:50 (SS Any%) and still not happy, so yeah Grey is right. Maybe a low 1:31 is when it's time to quit!
waffles
yall are nuts. invite me to watch one of these =D
Schala
Need to get world record back so expect some Super Serious Attempts in like six hours from now? Practicing Ganon and stuff until then since that's the main reason (along with some Agahnim RNG nonsense) Piromu beat my time...
rmz
I think I beat ALTTP 100% in like 8 hours the last time I tried

I'm pro

I never beat it and my record will never be broken, only tied.

Take that!
