@Teo-Teo- submit -ns runs, or ban them all. When some run are confirmed and some are not, this is a very problematic situation

There is no rule about the obligation to stream run. All my run on sorc I do offline.

Yes, and the current sorc WR is get with -ns, it is certainly possible to beat it without -ns, but it requires a little more effort.

1) IGT enables reroll maps on Arreat Plateau and Frozen Tundra when finding WP quickly. There are 4 lines of WP, if you find WP on the 1st line, the fastest solution will be reroll, perhaps IGT will give the opportunity even 2 reroll, which gives an advantage over the existing normal runs for chars without jump and charge.

2) I, like many other runners, have a problem with pain in my hand. If you give the opportunity to take breaks in the hell run, I will have to use them very often for the maximum time. This will greatly increase the time of the run itself, while significantly improving the final time.

3) Why if I like to run with -ns, do I lose this opportunity? The rhythm of the game greatly disturbs me the different loading times for rolls. And this is not just a jail run. The same goes for Charsy rolls. If you ban -ns, I will be forced to set the volume level to 0, as well as hardware prohibit the use of sound d2. This will give the same effect, just in a more confusing way.

4) Let’s even stop on one thing, because now most of votes want to ban -ns and change the time for IGN.

Even if you ban -ns, make a separate category, 0 volume in settings will still speed up the game. You cannot force everyone to turn on sound in the rules to slow down the game.

It`s not only save&quit saves, it`s "faster mod". TCP/IP resets is faster, loading time betwen acts is faster, wp is working faster.

Main goal of speedrun - show people how to beat the game quickly. If it faster with nosound - you should do it.

Thread: Scripts

Started by: 327327

Scripting is a serious issue within speedrun. In fact, the use of scripts is the difference between speedrun and TAS. For me personally, speedrun is the fastest passing game in equal conditions for everyone. If a person completed the game faster than me using scripts this is a dubious achievement.

Also the main rule of speedrun.com is the game itself must not be altered or controlled with outside tools. Such use is only possible with the consent of the community. The point is not to write 20 pages rule book, the point is not not break basic rules.

So if you use mouse keeping it should be illegal

It says what is allowed, subject to the consent of the community, otherwise it is prohibited. Rule d2 does not contain provisions on the script. Although I am against scripts as such, I understand that this will be approved, I just ask you to do it openly and officially, and not in a quiet.

• The game itself must not be altered or controlled with outside tools. Exceptions can be made on a community basis (e.g., character creation scripts, logo/cutscene removal dlls, etc.)

Please, change the Rules and be more public when you are doing things like this.

ekgm many dungeons have layouts ...
again maps are not problem for speedrunners for today, only catacombs, arcanes, sewers (not at all) and worldstone are random for runners

Yeah, and the main thing - maps are not the biggest problem for speedrunners, finding a path is not a difficult part of speedrun.

Diablo 2 seems to use a RNG with a seed of 64 bits: https:/​/​github.​com/​OpenDiablo2/​OpenDiablo2/​blob/​8a547ebf0e23daedbaf0c5717b9f81b72a74ecb0/​d2core/​d2gamestate/​d2gamestate.​go#L22

This link is going to OpenDiablo2, I'm not sure it works the same way as the original engine.

About markers - this is the first idea that comes to mind when you think about speedrun Diablo 2. But thats not how RNG in Diablo 2 works. The only 1 marker I can remember is this one -

The thing is RNG works in different ways. I don`t think it works like "How many different maps are there theoretically if they only consist if 100 coin flips?
2^100 maps.
How many different maps can possibly exist with a 64 bit seed? Only 2^64."

Because item drops are even more random than cards. Every time you receive an item, RNG work as the first time. So it looks like every map ( https:/​/​diablo.​gamepedia.​com/​Area_Size_(Diablo_II) ) generated separately. There is no connection betwen tower level 1 and tower level 2 at all, diablo 2 speedrun is not a new thing, if diablo 2 had markers, then they were already found.

No, there is a huge different between hell sc and hell hc. At normal noone can just oneshot you, so with high level of skill it`s not very special to beat the game deathless, many of SC wrs are deathless. But hell runs are not the same.

Run for the slower time to get achivment - is not a spirit of speedrunning.

Thats what we got today at normal runs, 15 hours of grind - 0 time act 4, and this guy allready have WR. And no one puts a gun to your head, thats just how d2 speedrun works for now - you got the best time - you should do it again for slower time.

You know, there is a bioshock infinite speedrun (https://www.speedrun.com/bsi#Any_HRH_Mod) and they have a mod, wich give you special item without grind, because runners don`t wanna grind 1 item. And what do we have?

I can go against rules, but if you guys real have no problem with it, and you think speedrunning it is when you have an achivment to beat p8 HC barb, because p8 HC barb is slower, thas p8 SC barb there is nothing I can do. I just want to make less grind, for me separation of HC and SC forse you to girnd even more.
