Under this ruleset, does that mean if you tangle with the sharks too many times and run out of light at the final screen, and are unable to collect the final gem for any of the loops, your run is invalid?

Yes, I can absolutely create a new category.

All that would be needed is a set of rules that sets it apart from the existing categories.

When you mean a 100% run, do you mean a single loop, or doing only 100% loops until you rebuild the bridge?

You'd have to define the rules to remove any ambiguity on how the run should be executed.

It would, but in this version, the page never appears in his hand, it goes directly from the player's hand into the book.

We're going with the same rules as the previous iteration (realMyst: Masterpiece Edition).

By those rules, time starts on your first movement (or input) on Myst Island, which removes the opening cutscene.

Time ends on the last input which results in the white page being replaced in Atrus's linking book.

I forgot to change the rules when I approved the last run, they are updated now. 🙂

Most leaderboards don't allow spliced or abbreviated runs, and I don't think we should break step with that.

You can upload a multi-video run to speedrun.com, you simply embed the links to the multiple parts in the description. See: https://www.speedrun.com/botw/run/y89l715m

Go ahead and upload the entire unbroken, unedited run.

Thread: More category ideas...

It's interesting you bring up datamining, we recently discovered via a YouTube video that one of the producers of this game is still around and we reached out to her in an effort to see what insider details she might have.

Haven't heard back from her yet, but fingers crossed.

Hey, if you make a 100% run, I'll make a category so you can post it.

@DaravaeDaravae I mentioned in my post, kampydk, the series moderator does not see the option to add more moderators, it is either missing or not in the same spot that you would normally find it.

The reason more moderators were requested is because kampydk is busy and unable to commit time to moderating SRCOM in an ongoing fashion. He also liked the request for additional moderators, just so you know he saw it.

This is in regards to https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​myst_series

We have reached out to kampydk, the current series supermod, and asked to add a few more supermods to the series so as not to take up a lot of his time.

He tried to add additional moderators, but there was no place to do so: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/665267397506236479/700369576222785636/Capture1.PNG

We are reaching out to get zaustus, Gelly, and Admiral_Flapjack added as supermods of the Myst series.

I have already reached out to kampydk and obtained his permission: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/665267397506236479/700372299697881108/unknown.png

It's a holdover from when Myst and realMyst were categorized together on the same leaderboard; all versions of the game fell under the same leaderboard and it was never amended when realMyst got its own leaderboard.

It is allowed, but be aware that it is also slow.

There is a current version of the game (released by Cyan, so it is an official version) which has been modified to run natively in Windows 10 using ScummVM, and it is the accepted fastest version of the game. It is available on GoG (https://www.gog.com/game/myst_masterpiece_edition) and Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/63660/Myst_Masterpiece_Edition/).

There anyone still watching this game? I've submitted runs but can't get a hold of BlackChaos322.
