Thread: Looking for Speedrunners for a Feature on Minecraft.net

Started by: MirabaiMirabai

I like this, but please, please just contact some of the higher end speedrunners to better show our community. I would not see myself as a good enough example so please do take care in who you take random advice from.

I do not want to offend anyone, I've ran Minecraft games at marathons, but I believe that Theesizzler, illumina, funderful could provide good/better insights, as well as the japanese random seed glitchless community.

Good luck and show us off well, pls 😉

Romance% probably needs new routing, but doesnt require swarm and I believe fireball can be skipped if we have enough practice with vulnerability hex / walking bomb
fireball is just very easy to use early game

Thread: Triple duplicating?

Started by: l4m2l4m2

it relies on the slowness of the game:

you pick up items, then forcequit (alt+f4).
The game saves your inventory faster than the surrounding tiles
so it will save the items in your inventory, but not save that they were picked up, thus leaving them on the ground

note:
If your PC is too fast, it will have saved that the items were picked up from the floor.

There might be other reasons why this happens, but thats what I tell people in marathons ^^

Thread: New categories‽

Started by: AcrogenousAcrogenous

Wither co-op would be slower unless its glitchless, so that seems an unnecessary category imo

I like 'Adventurer%' which would really be 'see / mine all structures', its a very chill category if you just want to play some mc with a goal.

there, added two cents

This entire thing started about GDQ, right?

I think that speedrunners on a GDQ dont refer to other people as 'casuals'
and doing so is kind of bad, i agree. As if you suddenly get a different status when you post a run, which might not even be good.

However when explaining a glitch or something it is very normal to use a 'casual' playthrough of the game as reference.

eg: "Normally you wouldn't have these characters here in a casual playthrough, but because we did X we have them here and can use them to set up other glitches"

or the like.

This is a perfectly normal way to talk about 'casual'.

Thread: Denerim Gate Skip

Started by: letterswordsletterswords

I just had the fight in 1m30, starting at my room right before Morrigan, convo glitch sten, kick jory/daveth, denerim, morrigan
ran backwards like Letters just found, H and pretty consistent conversation glitch (over many tries), take everyone to the end of the map, inferno behind you. kill anything oncoming (in the line of visibility) depending on what type

Most importantly, (small but important) when looking at the gate, enemies spawning to the left of you will not be in combat with you until much later
keep fireball / inferno more for the spawns on the right side (only use warden) then try to get close to your friends every time, it could have been faster, but i was just too late for another spawn before, so 1m10 is possible
(I have an average of 2m40 for that fight, so for me 1m30 is significant.)

I will start putting the gate skip in my runs, even if just to get used to it and to try other spellrotations.

it's still not truly consistent, but 85% is now thanks to Letters, and to me it is as inconsistent as the fight has ever been, so there is no more reason not to do it...

Thread: Denerim Gate Skip

Started by: letterswordsletterswords

Yes, I had it the first two times and then never got it fully again (couldn't talk to Sten with more than one character)

However, these first two times I had started a run before and blah blah, story short: probably some memory leak going on there. I'm going to try it in a run next time I stream to see if the memory leak is sufficient when running 'normally'

This might skip 50-60 seconds when the parametres are just right, 20 without having a clue what I'm doing.

If the memory leak would not be sufficient (or I not fast enough) I'm dropping this out of my runs personally, so much frustration after getting it so easily at the beginning 😉

its not so much the having him stand still, its the 'spawn in the level as a party' that is the problem

One small addition I will do to this before this post gets locked:
Sometimes even big games have very slow verification. It took me some whining when I had my first WR to get to where you are now.

But trust me when I say that no one will forget. If they are modded, they are committed, once that commitment falters they get unmodded, its simple.
Just... in the verification process have a little more patience and you'll be fine.
When something is really off (I had to wait for 3 weeks once) thats when you can complain, but you really should have some way to communicate with other runners anyway 🙂

You are motivated to be the best and have the attitude to go fast, keep it, work hard and submit to a GDQ if you want to run, I hope I'll see you there.

it was based off of your comment that sten wanders off very quickly, so first ill just try with sten, no adjustments, then ill tamper with his tactics a bit just to get him to stand still for a second.

Only if that doesnt work id try all the things with leliana, since it obviously worked with her before.

"Also is it required to show the in-game time in your video or can you just submit it after timing it afterwards?"

I can't speak for the mods, but I have always retimed it on stream later so both real time and game time are in the video I post
Just because its way easier for mods to verify.

Holy cow, that saves some big time, ill probably use my next day streaming to try and get this somewhat consistent (probably tactic adjustment)
and if not, I'm going to look at picking up leliana and what the actual time gained / lost is from all actions

It's also just fun to have the soldiers yelling 'Kill those Godless bastards' when the darkspawn are just there... But I guess funny stuff was never sth to consider 😉
