It's pretty much streamlining inputs, but there are several screens where you expect to have to do x y and z and you just have to spam anything 6-7x. Here's the latest wr - https://youtu.be/ttFGFSkLfHE?si=fAQMbWBSXgR1Eqvb Im toying with pushing for sub 3:15. The TAS gets sub 3, but I've watched it a...

So I was going to originally post lots of images and text explaining the new route, but among being logged out for a few months and not being able to get back in to today, I decided to take another route. I'm documenting the entire reroute on YouTube. If you're ever interested, here are the first si...

I ended up getting Snatcher ok'd as a speedrun in an upcoming event and needed to take some time to route that for a bit. I'll be back to Lunar soon though. The early game, let's say 50% is fully set at this point though for reference.

Speedrun Bounty Announcement - I will be funding a bounty for Lunar 2 SCD's Speedrun World Record!

Within the first hour after the 1 year anniversary of my latest WR, I've just finished confirming the *cough* Final, New route! Things are now possible that were not before. Things, in fact, went SO well, that I have to put some extra time into testing the latest stuff before more actual runs can st...

Hello all! I'm very pleased to announce, the year of the sub 2:30 speedrun has begun! I've recently been rerouting my run for Lunar and have had very promising results. Since I feel this will be my true, final push into Lunar: The Silver Star, if even just for my future-reference, I thought I would ...

Re: Lunar the Silver Star News Roundup - WR anniversary, WR Goal achieved, First TAS started - any input welcome!

I'm going to keep running any% until I get at least a 2:3X:XX. I have 1 section of the game where I dropped stepcount and I can easily get it down to a 2:37 whenever I get a decent run. Just over 2 minutes ahead my first attempt since the goal run without even hitting that dropped stepcount so look ...

Re: Has anyone ever tested to see if you can actually pay the million silver to get through the nanza barrier "early"?

Also, while you're here one other thing I always wondered about was is there actually a scene for the singers song in the village of Lyton? By the time you get there she's already kidnapped, but I know I'm wondering what happens if you get there before the red dragon cave.

Has anyone ever tested to see if you can actually pay the million silver to get through the nanza barrier "early"?

Kyle asks for 1000000 silver to let you through the barrier if you visit him before you gather the full party. I'm willing to run a long save file to see if it's possible to bribe him, but I figured I'd ask here first. Can you even get 1,000,000 silver? Or will the counter stop at 999,999? Can anyon...

Re: New glitch - Legend of the Autoscroll glitch - a bit more in-depth

Doing some further research it looks like the x factor on this glitch is NOT the merchant being mobile. The glitch is triggered only when walking 1 direction and initiating the shop menu instantly. Any shop where you can walk forward directly into the shop interaction is potentially a run-killer. Ju...
