Title: Sonic R Times for all Characters
Post by: Dekuboy on January 02, 2018, 07:20:35 PM
I've noticed that stats for Sonic R are only valid if you use Super Sonic. This wouldn't be a problem except that since I only found out that Super Sonic was unlockable now, then I'd have to redo all of my stats. This is kind-of the point of speedrunning and I understand that, but the thing is that I feel that there should be categories for every character because most of the characters would not be considered useful and would not be used in rus unless this was a thing. The game even keeps track of your times for all of the characters, but only Super Sonic's times matter. It might be hard to rework the page to be like this, but you can probably assume that everybody either used Super Sonic or Sonic. Additionally, I know that the staff of this website has redone pages before like how they added all of the categories for Sonic Mania and Stage 4 for SA2.
I would really appreciate it if you did this site reworking. Thank you.

Where did you find that stats for Sonic R are valid only if Super Sonic is used? On the Sonic R videos page, there are several videos for stats, including records, that use other characters such as Dr. Robotnik and Amy. Those videos could create problems for expanding the charts as it demonstrates that splitting the charts by character and then assuming that everybody else used either Super Sonic or Sonic would not work.

Good point. It probably is a little too late to go ahead and change that about the charts. Thank you for bringing that up as I only checked a few videos to see that Super Sonic was used or not.

Actually this was already debated in the forums in this exact section. That was back in 2005. This says that this was already debated and I probably shouldn't be trying to bring the discussion back. Oh well. I'm going to lock this now.
