    What bothers me about this video isn't the overall clickbaity nature of it. It's about how many people actually think there's actually a "loophole" when there isn't. Looking at SRC's general rules page, it states: "The game itself must not be altered or controlled with outside tools. Exceptions can be made on a community basis (e.g., character creation scripts, logo/cutscene removal dlls, etc.) As well as: "Just because something isn't in writing doesn't mean it is allowed. If you are doing something drastically outside of normal expectations for a game category, it is recommended to contact a moderator to clarify if it is allowed." Both of those lines can be found at: And seeing the comments complaining about SMO moderators not specifying that rules are not allowed is seriously concerning. They have no reason to do so, as anyone that submits a run to a leaderboard on SRC should've already read the general gameplay rules. This video is a joke, yes, but it really does highlight the problems here. People don't ACTUALLY read the rules, and then complain about the lack of clarity.

    Just want to point this out has its own ruleset for the whole website and it does cover this exact thing so he didn't find a loophole as its stated under general gameplay rules: "• Game memory must not be manipulated or monitored with outside tools during runs (For example: Emulator RAM Watch, Cheat Engine). Exceptions can be made on a community basis for convenience. Examples of these conveniences might be item trackers or info HUDs for stream viewers or auto-splitters. These should not include information that would be unknown to the runner. • The game itself must not be altered or controlled with outside tools. Exceptions can be made on a community basis (e.g., character creation scripts, logo/cutscene removal dlls, etc.)" -

      It's faster for speed-running. The text scrolls faster because Japanese syllables are represented with a single character.

    This is interesting, honestly I think this should, or at least could be a new category, time starts when you begin modding and ends when you successfully complete a run without crashing maybe? This could be the start of new and great things.
