Starting/Joining a Race

Once you've connected to SRL on IRC, you need at least one opponent willing to play.

Hosting a Race

To host a race, in #speedrunslive, issue the following command:

.startrace alttphacks

You'll be given a unique race channel to join with the format #srl-<unqiue race ID>
To join the race channel, type /join #srl-<unique race ID>
Once you have joined a race channel, fcBot is your buddy to help you get your group started:
He only knows how to start Casual/Normal, Open, Open Pedestal, Swordless, Overworld Glitches, or Open Overworld Glitches races on his own.
If you want to do something other than these, you'll have to generate your own ROM and link it in the channel for people to use.

Casual/Normal, Open, Open Pedestal, Swordless, Overworld Glitches, or Open Overworld Glitches
