Re: Link in DKC3... Why?

Yeah, that reference is from Link's Awakening, as you collect several seashell there. LA was also the last Zelda game to be released before DKC3.

Rare are awesome that have references from other games, and movies as well, in their games. Me like!

Re: DKC Trilogy- Best times

Yeah, I know that. Sub 30 is possible in the theory, but it will require you to use several of the TAS tricks that you don't even know about, and they are hard to do on console ;).

Re: DKC Trilogy- Best times

Set the goal to sub 30 ;).
I haven't been speedrunning this for a long time now. I'm sticking to TASing for awhile.
Current progress for that: Just finished Snow Barrel Blast with an in game timer of 14 minutes, 2 seconds and 45 frames. Not too bad.

Re: Hey! I liked these games!

I just finished DKL, 100%, today. I think the game is quite rubbish. The camera is one main reason. It isn't scrolling fast enough, sometimes not at all. It sucks that when you jump on a tree, and jump down from it again, you may die because the camera hasn't scrolled down enough to see the ground. ...

Re: Sprite Comics!

Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to mention how to do it... But as Gnawzooka said, it's number 5 in both ZSNES and SNES9X. Other numbers remove the different layers in the game, such as the background. It's nice to fool around with.

Re: 500 fun things to do while playing DKC

Considering that you can't finish more than one level in neither or the three games. Well, you can beat the second level by teamthrowing and jumping on the target at the end far to the right. So the end would be the 4th level, Lockjaw. 14. See how many times in a row you can do midair jumping in DKC2.

One way is to play the game on the emulator, remove the sprites, takes a screenshot and just add the sprites you want. Not that hard :).

Re: DKC Atlas Level Mapping Project

It would be good to show the invisible coins/barrels/bananas etc. as well. To make those items transparent or similar.

You are doing an awesome job with these maps, Qyz. We love you for it :).

Re: K. Rool Fight Glitch

This only happens if you die after the kredits has shown once and then you replay the fight.
When you land on K. K. Rool the last time before the kredits you can't control the direction of the monkeys, they always bounce the same way.

Re: Speed Running!

You don't have to go for the world record when speedrunning a game. I find speedrunning to be fun, fun to test your own limits in a game. I also think it is a good way to replay a game that you have already played a lot of times before. It is after all a challenge!
