Longest Path Runs?
« on: April 14, 2018, 02:21:45 PM »
Due to Sayonara's timer encouraging the shortest routes for every ending in Survival Mode, there hasn't really been any action with Longest Path has there?

The Longest Path being this:

0 > 1 > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 6 > 7 > 13 > 14 > 15 > 25 > 50 > 27 > 28 > 29 > 19 > 53 > 56 > 20 > 37 > 38 > 47 > 48 > 59 > 49

It's already in the All Unlocks route, but here it is separated. Of course video evidence will have to exist for this to be legitimized, as you can't go off of seeing it after due to the way Sayonara's timekeeping works.

And this will also be different from doing this in an All Unlocks run where collecting lives is encouraged.

You are incorrect. First of all your route is written wrong as you included F49 twice.

Your route is actually: 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-13-14-15-25-50-27-28-29-19-53-56-20-37-38-47-48-59-49
However that is only 26 stages which is not the longest.

You can get up to 27 stages with the following route:
0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-13-14-15-25-50-27-28-29-19-53-56-20-37-38-41-58-44-45-46 (Game Map of Route: https://i.imgur.com/FZBpxd5.png)

This route is 27 stages and is one additional stage than with your route. I noticed this after doing a run of it and realizing that it's not the longest. I will redo a run of this route and link it when it's uploaded.

Here's the first completed run of the Longest Path category which is now also officially a category on Speedrun.com! (https://www.speedrun.com/sayoumi/full_game#Longest_Path)
The Run: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0vOXYOzCks

I got a time of 12:40"26 (IGT) and 15:47 RTA.
Please bear in mind that it's absolutely trash though. I might improve it some time in the future, I don't know.
