    SegmentRunning
    is a monthly competition where competitors speedrun a game from the beginning to a certain point. The average length of these segments can range from a couple of minutes to around half an hour. The goal of the competition is to get people into speedrunning or just to have fun! At the end of every month, the leaderboard will be posted in the round's thread. Good luck and have fun!
    To submit your run, use the "Run submission" button. You can also submit games you'd like to run with the "Game submission" button.

    Complete 1-4 or 2-4? This page says one thing, and the site says the other.

    This is really cool! Can I use a plugin on my emulator to time it?

    No need. The timing will be done by the footage reviewers.

    I've made some changes to the site.
    Based on user feedback, it's not entirely obvious where to find the current round, so I've added a 'This month' banner to the main page. I've also added the SMB-styled SegmentRunning logo to the bottom of the game's page for preservation, accessibility and style.
    Oh, and I moved the notice to the top, because... reasons.

    Just a heads-up:
    9 days left until the run submission deadline. We've received one run so far.

    Uh, guys?
    No one has resubmitted their runs yet. You have four days to do so.

    Oh hey I didn't even see this thread

    Well, guess I'll take a stab at it in a bit

    Edit: Here's an idea @smileyhead; how about all the people interested in speedrunning follow you, and every time a new segmentrun is posted you push out a blog post with a link to the thread? That way we're notified every month

    I think this sounds like a great idea. I won't be entering, I'm too mediocre at games to do speedrunning, but I do enjoy watching other people's speedruns on occasion.

    The thing is, practicing doesn't seem to make me much better at games. I just kind of hit my peak performance at "meh". And I know I'd need to improve a lot in order to not die constantly when trying to speedrun.

    Eh, the more "meh" people enter, the better your odds are at placing higher than you think. As it stands it sounds like you might be one of only... like... 5 people entering this month

    It's not much of a speedrun if I'm dying constantly though.

    I'm sure you can go two worlds without dying with enough practice. You have four days to submit a run.
