  1. I don't have a list, but you can just open it in Lazy Shell to see everything.
  2. Weren't you planning to stream your "official" run?
  3. You know, if you were streaming it, people might be able to give you advice as you're doing the routing. Just a thought.
  4. My stream is the same name as here: Doomsday31415. I stream various games every Saturday at noon PST. Currently doing Super Metroid. All that aside, I do plan to stream v9 when it comes out...
  5. Yeah, the hard mode route will likely involve some grinding in various places. You might even want to get the Lazy Shell for Smithy! I wonder if there's a consistent way to do Mack without the flame ring on hard, though...
  6. Better be careful, or else you might encourage me to get some free 5 hour run in...
  7. v9's in the final stages of testing, so I wouldn't expect any bosses to be added at this point, much less Ozma 2.0.
  8. If you open the menu at the same time as jumping to hit a star chest, you'll be able to switch party members around while under the effects of a star. By doing this, the game applies all level up bonuses (including HP and spells) to the switched member. In this way, you can give Peach the bonuses Mallow would have gotten at level 70 (e.g. Dark Star). Death doesn't disqualify the run, but no save states or other emulator features allowed!
  9. Well, that was fast. There's a reason no one else has touched hard mode with an 8 foot pole...
  10. Yes: https://www.speedrun.com/smrpg_armageddon
  11. At the present time, there isn't a separate category for v8 easy/hard compared to v8 beta. If there were, my best (and only) time in v8 easy would be 3:25:03*. * Depends on start/end timing.
  12. There's two major reasons to do it with the beta: A lot of the early boss fights are faster (Mallow does more damage with Shocker and the bosses have less HP) and a lot of the later boss fights are safer/faster (Dark is used far less) Most boss fights yield 1 exp, which saves a ton of time skipping the level up screen. There's one fight near the end that gives thousands of experience and takes a few minutes to get through the level up sequence for, but it's much faster to do it all at once than spread out through the game.
  13. Nice! Even more impressive is the fact you did it while missing over 300 max HP! Thanks for the shoutout, and welcome to the Xion club!
  14. This was with one of the betas for v8, which you can find in the downloads section.
  15. I improved a bunch of the routing from the previous Dark Star route, did things significantly faster, and managed to get a time of 3:03:57! Check it out: *Including credits, which adds about 11 and a half minutes in vanilla.
  16. Good luck! No amount of strategy will save you from Xion if you can't block her attacks... And you're welcome
  17. Considering Rosalina is entirely strategy, and you saw exactly how to do it, it's not surprising you were able to win. She is the hardest boss., though, so grats all the same. Galaxy items, specifically Galaxy Rings, will help you survive Xion. I farmed coins using the Master.
  18. Switching out Mario is dependent on the rom, since certain events get broken by the change. So the patch would need to be made specifically for vanilla. Unfortunately, I don't remember what the changes are, so your only chance is to check with DK and hope he has the changes written down somewhere.
  19. armageddon

    It's relatively small, but the superboss armors do have different stats in v8.
  20. Boss rush is basically post Smithy, so it would be an even longer run. As far as rules, it's what you would expect: no emulator features.
  21. A lot of bosses use certain attacks after a set number of turns. Rosalina is no exception. I used speed bracer on Mario because it maximized my chances of success.
  22. Crystal Rings are probably the way to go. They provide the status protection while Lazy Shell/Nova Armor/Rainbow Robe protect against the elements.
  23. Schala's Ring gives one character invincibility. On the 10th use, it gives everyone invincibility and disappears forever. You can't get it back due to a bug. Nova Armor is the male counterpart to the Rainbow Robe. Super Suit and Brave Suit don't matter to you at this point. Every point of defense makes a massive difference. Have you beaten May and Dawn? You'll want their rewards before doing the FF boss rush...
  24. You can always use Celebi to keep Peach invincible for a little while. Schala's Ring is very useful for this as well. I don't have a video for beating Terra, since I didn't feel she was that hard compared to the others.
  25. No, she has 10 lives. However, if you don't defeat her fast enough, she'll heal them back indefinitely.
