All emulators, MIOS modifications, or homebrew applications capable of running Gamecube ISOs (Dolphin, Dios Mios, Devolution, Nintendont, etc.) are banned. The use of a backup disc is banned. Launching the game (via disc or otherwise) from Nintendont is banned (as it seems to make the game run faster than normal.) All cheats are banned from being used.
100% is defined by collecting everything in the pause menu. This includes:
● All 100 Star Pieces
● All 85 unique Badges
● All 124 Tattles
● All 57 Recipes
● All 42 Shine Sprites
● All 7 Party Members (fully upgraded)
● All 7 Crystal Stars
● All 8 Special Moves
● Superstar Rank at level 30
● All 4 Paper Curses
● Ultra Boots and Ultra Hammer
Completing the Trouble Center and reaching level 99 are not required because these achievements aren't tracked in the pause menu. Collecting all Important Items is not required as it is impossible to possess all of them at the same time.
Timing starts when you click "Yes" after entering your name. Timing ends at "The End" screen at the end of the credits. If the 100% definition is not met at the time of game completion, you may resume in post-game and finish any remaining goals. The time will then end at the completion of 100%.
