Ban cheating, allow text-only submissions(and don't be apathetic). Everyone is already familiar with the legitimate arguments for both.

Thread: Menu Storage Discussion

Started by: VulajinVulajin

Any%: Absolutely for creating a "pure any%" and simply calling it Any%. Please no silly names.

"Old" Any%: As others have said, the levels that were covered by the past route are still done in ASL runs in the same way, and the niche of a shorter category that isn't glitch-ridden can indeed be filled by All Weapons/Culture style runs. However, I'd request that the current "NG Any%" and "NG+ Any%" pages be preserved as separate categories with the "Old "- prefix purely for archival purposes.

ASL: I'll dissent and say that all forms of menu storage, including confirmation storage, should be banned from ASL, despite the fact that this will mean everyone's current top runs will become invalid, which is merely a temporary inconvenience. My reasoning is that despite recent findings, tech possible with menu storage is still in its infancy, and potentially could lead to more not-very-fun strategies in the future. I believe the spirit of ASL as a category isn't to just hit the checkpoints of visiting every level, but to maintain a more basic Bastion gameplay of optimizing movement and combat rather than abusing uninteresting ways to ignore it. DISCLAIMER due to a general lack of properly organized information, I still feel somewhat in unbeknownst as to the specfics of the Tazal Terminals confirmation skips, and my opinion on this might change, but as of right now I strongly disagree with the idea that no one would ever attempt the level blind in a run, especially if it does save nearly as much time as the top post says.

Not their fault you say? WRs keep changing you say? Take a look at the Bastion record they cited, "12:40 on 21 Oct 2014" when in reality that run was already very much out of date even last year. The SDA record lists 12:40 as the time because of a timing difference between SDA and the actual community rules on speedrun.com. The runner in the book shold have been either mhmd or kazzadan who were the wr holders at around the time when the data for the book was being collected.

Why do I know when that data was being collected? Because the guy from guinness messaged me last year, inquiring about the record. He also actually asked about the SDA time, which I explained was slower. Based on the mails after that he seemed to have understood. Then proceeded to include this time that's both wrong and out of date.

You can no longer tell if a run has a comment on it by just glancing over to the icon on the right. This frustrates me greatly please fix.

There is no glitchless category because no one actively speedruns it.

Thread: LiveSplit issues

Started by: losilosi

>I've run into a bunch of issues though, starting with Livesplit not being visible on my screen over Dishonored if its in fullscreen.

People normally have their livesplit open next to the game's window, or on another monitor, then add it over the game in their layout in OBS. I'd recommend doing that.
I run the game in a 1600x900 window and have livesplit open next to it (1080p screen)
