Hey guys. Long Time Lurker here.
I've started playing ssx3 again recently. When I did the all peak a few days ago I was excited to see it was above cloaked yoshi's time. I think I can beat the incredible run Jack Archer just posted, with some shortcuts I've discovered over the past few months.
I think sub 18 is very very possible without TAS. But I might need some help from the community to try to really profit from new route discoveries.

Also why does he not use teleporters in metro?

this is all assuming resets are allowed in the world record runs. I saw two pages on here about world record requirements one said resets were not allowed. The other said resets were allowed.

Hello, Zartla! Welcome to Merq!

So... as Nigel said, you mean "Jack", not "Jake", if I recall correctly?

If you mean Jack Archer, then the whole no teleports thing is because there are 2 racing categories; clean (no wormholes or cheaty shortcuts), and... uh... there isn't really a name for the other category. Let's call it "unhygienic", 'cause why not? The "unhygienic" runs using whatever means possible to get to the end. You'll see a lot of his runs say clean, or just nothing. Also, I don't think it's likely you're gonna beat him (nothing against you), because we chat pretty regularly of Skype, and he said that he's gonna redo it, and I'm pretty sure he also said "sub 18". So... Yeah, but good luck anyway in your endeavors. <3

Also... How long have you been lurking here for? And how old are you? (don't worry I'm not a pedo ask Jack).

<3

Only specific wormholes in races for SSX 3 are allowed for scoreboard entries, just as an FYI. There ended up being so many that a lot of them invalidated any effort put into racing at all, so we had to put a limit on what was allowed and say "at this point in time, these X wormholes are allowed but no more." Check the SSX 3 rules page - anything you see in the Master Runs page is allowed. Anything else, including anything new you discover, is not.

SSX Tricky, on the other hand, any new wormhole is allowed.

Oversight to be honest - very easy when I approve one SSX 3 score every year. :heh I'll fix it in a day or two - sorry for the mistake Nigel.

Sorry guys, been getting over a head cold recently.
Jacks route doesn't use wormholes, nor does mine. I haven't discovered new wormholes either. I think they take away from the fun and competition. I haven't really wasted time trying to do them either. However corner cuts. Supermanning certain jumps, and well timed Y (GC player here) resets would cut down significantly from his time.

Jack used Y multiple times in his run so I'm assuming this would be considered clean. as would certain "questionable short cuts" Such as the intimidator bar hop. and Metrocity phonebooths. That's part of what I've came here to figure out. I also want to help do anything possible to reach sub 18.

lol wut, questionable? The only thing questionable about it is that no one every does that shortcut cause it's incredibly hard to pull off correctly.

I even played it super safe which wasted a few seconds

It's the shortcut itself that I would consider questionable. I do it in my practice runs as well, it's pretty tricky. But I've noticed if you hit it really hard, sometimes you'll get reset if you're not doing tricks. That makes it slightly questionable in my book. It's a great shortcut though I nearly shat my pants the first time I saw it on youtube.

Y resets, do you mean reset warps? If a run uses those, it's not technically "clean." Clean means no glitches of any type, racing as intended bla bla bla. Phonebooths are fine, as it is in the game, intended to be used by the developers.

But again, all this stuff is somewhat dependant on the person racing.
