Here is a PasteBin showing some VERY recent routing changes involving deathwarps 

The category for this tournament is Any% No Reset-warps.  You can use the North American (U) or the Japanese (J) version of the game (but not PAL).  Intentional deaths and gameovers are ALLOWED.  All glitches are allowed, including screen wraps and grenade pausing.  Reset-warps on the J version are BANNED (the U version does not allow for reset-warps -- pressing Reset to return to Area 1 with all your equipment intact).  The ONLY exception is for a softlock (your character is stuck somewhere you can't advance and can't force a gameover) -- if you softlock you may press Reset to return to the beginning of Area 1, however you must return to the room where you softlocked before you fight any more bosses.  This is necessary to prevent abuse of the rule.

The matches are BEST 2 OUT OF 3.  That means for each match the players will do up to 3 races in a row.  Whoever wins 2 races is the winner of that match.  You don't need to play the third race if the score is already 2-0.

Players may use cartridge, flashcart, or emulator.  Approved emulators are FCEUX, NEStopia, and Bizhawk.

Players will use SpeedRunsLive  to time and record their race.  The time recorded on SRL will be considered the official time for the match.  All players are required to stream and to follow SRL rules.
Matches will be streamed to along with commentary.  For anyone potentially restreaming these races, here is Skavenger216's flickr profile, which has the stream layouts for the tournament restreams 

Timing ends the moment the screen begins to fade out after defeating the final boss.  The race begins when you press Start on the title screen.  Make sure to reset or power-cycle your console just before the race begins because there is a glitch that happens if you start a game after the demo has run for too long.
