Ah yeah all the old games run faster on VC since there's no lagFinnDinner said:Uh yes, they say playing on Wii U VC is actually faster than regular N64, but there are frame rate speedups in Chapters 4 and 5 that kill runs, and that's like an hour and a half in.
I'm guessing you play on original because you use the controller, is there a reason you don't play VC for MK?
For full game runs of MK64 (and some other games too like SM64), we basically just don't allow VC because of that. Pretty much just community choice. For us it's more about the history and competition so it's nicer to be able to compare to super old runs and how far we've come if improvements aren't just from the game being played on a less laggy version. So basically lag reduction strategies just become part of the runs.
Although for time trial stuff, it's in game timer so you can use Wii VC for that.
