Thread: Category exclusive to reset runs?

Started by: RatherRather

To me it seems like it unnecessarily blows up the amount of IL categories, but we can at least try and see for now if the reset runs get attention.

Thread: 1 Lap (No skips) and RWS time trials.

Started by: derpderp

Maybe they should both be labeled, ie. "skips" and "no skips"?

Thread: New game moderators

Started by: -7-7

Given my complete inactivity in the game's speedrunning scene combined with currently being the sole person who can verify runs and edit categories/rules/etc (thelegendarymudkip hasn't been able to log in for months), I figure I should open this thread for anyone who is willing to become a Cookie Clicker moderator.

You should hopefully pass these requirements:
- have run the game at least semi-recently
- be ready to regularly verify newly submitted runs and help maintain the game's SRC page if needed
- have some prior experience moderating on speedrun.com (not actually necessary but a definite plus)
- abide by the moderation rules (link)

Thread: slower frame gives faster in-game time

Looks like a case of the timer not updating visually.

Utility hack for watching horizontal speed during gameplay, if anyone finds it useful.

Thread: All Versions Allowed?

Started by: CaillouCCaillouC

It's true, the rules and decisions are not very concise. Not only am I not particularly invested in moderating this game, but also the nature of it makes it a non-trivial task.

Thread: Tricks for slot machine room

Started by: LeRemiiiLeRemiii

At the start of the room, the 4th slot machine cycle is a triple 7. In runs I would always try to catch this cycle by waiting for the right moment (had the timing pretty much internalized), then mashing. Your first hit can even be one cycle earlier, since that cycle has a 7 in the leftmost column. As a backup, if you don't hit the right row, but get a perfect mash (such that you didn't desync the columns), you can try for that triple 7 row again. I never had any strategies besides this and winging it, although if you're aiming for WR, you'll probably reset after missing once, anyway.

Since Ghost has been banned from the website for cheating, I've removed the run from the boards.

Thread: Auto-spliter

Started by: LagadouLagadou

It hasn't been updated, the autosplitter requires a new version for every game version which is a lot of effort.

Thread: Future Leaderboard Modifications and Changes

Started by: GameguySDGameguySD

I find it rather awkward to have to be running one version for some categories, and a different, now outdated version for others. I'm all for any solution that involves not mixing the two versions in the same leaderboard.

Thanks for the report! It is rather tricky to verify things in these games, unfortunately, since recording is not so simple.

Thread: Custom Cat Planet build for speedrunning

Started by: cros107cros107

Watching this run http://www.speedrun.com/run/dy40q43z it seems that the in-game timer doesn't line up with the YouTube timer - unless that's just an encoding issue.

Unfortunately, we don't really have a way to do that. People use AutoHotkey for that purpose.

There's the Mikey series, along with quite a few other (mediocre) games with (individual level) in-game timers.
