The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Randomizer
ALTTP Randomizer Discord
Streaming is required for all recorded races. Currently, we allow a race monitor (person who created the room) to disable streaming enforcement. This should only be done for tournament races on a stream delay or other scenarios where streaming shouldn't be enforced. Failure to provide a VOD with proof of your finish time will likely result in a disqualification.
Only permitted glitches (listed as competitive rules) for No Glitches logic races are allowed. An accessible set of glitch rules is available (if using this ruleset, note it clearly in the race info). Any race using a glitched ruleset should use the "Beat the game (glitches)" goal.
No voice calls with other racers (unless clearly noted in the room info)
Auto-tracking is allowed. The auto-tracker can only perform the following actions automatically
1) Record and track any item collected by a player, or record items already pre-equipped (for example, starting boots, sword, flute, etc).
2) Record and track any small or big keys collected by a player.
3) Record when dungeon boss has been defeated.
4) Record and track checked locations that are not in a dungeon. Location checks inside a dungeon cannot be tracked.
Emulator-specific functionality is banned (fast forward, save states, disabling layer rendering, etc)
ZSNES and Snes9x 1.4x are BANNED (they probably don't even work anyway).
No controller turbo, no left+right or up+down
Do not get help from another human during the race, do not look at the streams of other players.
Do not post anything in chat, or put in a comment, that contains spoilers. When in doubt, wait until the race has concluded before adding a comment to your race.
ROM and RAM inspection (except for auto-tracking) are BANNED
Spoiler log race exceptions
Looking at another player's stream is allowed for spoiler log races (and only spoiler log races).
If in doubt of the above, please ask!
Suspected rule violations or cheating should be raised to the ALTTP Racing Council. You can find them on the discord linked above.
