The Bee Movie Game (DS) leaderboards used to be a part of the https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​bmg_pc page.​ However, since the DS version of the game was made by a different developer / requires different timing rules, this new page was created to use for Bee Movie Game (DS).

I just finished the process of transferring all the runs over. Everything should be good now.

Let me know if there's any confusion.

Thread: New timing rules

Started by: BlackbeltGingaNinjaBlackbeltGingaNinja

As part of the move to a new speedrun.com page, I decided to re-examine the timing rules for this particular version of the game. As Silo_Simon justifiably points out in the final seconds of his run, it's dumb that timing ends on the appearance of the ending credits.

I've changed the rules so that timing now ends on the final input of the run: selecting the final quick-time prompt on Montgomery's head during the final boss battle. I will adjust the current runs' times accordingly.

Let me know if there's any confusion, questions, or suggestions.

I'm currently in the process of moving the runs from the old leaderboard onto this new page. This process will hopefully be completed within the next 24 hours.

Thread: Leaderboard re-structuring

Started by: BlackbeltGingaNinjaBlackbeltGingaNinja

BEFORE RESTRUCTURING:
This page contained the leaderboards for three different Bee Movie Games.

1) Beenox developed the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Windows versions of the game.
2) Smart Bomb Interactive developed the Wii version.
3) Vicarious Visions developed the Nintendo DS version.

Each is a different speedrun, with a different route and different runners. Therefore, I thought it best to split this leaderboard into three pages to make everything look cleaner.

AFTER RESTRUCTURING:
1) This page will be home to Bee Movie Game (Xbox 360, PS2, Windows).
2) A new page has been created for Bee Movie Game (Wii): https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​bmg_wii
3) A new page has been created for Bee Movie Game (DS): https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​bmg_ds

I'm in the process of moving your runs over now. Shouldn't take more than 24 hours. Let me know if you have any questions.

You can choose to support the game monetarily if you would like. Otherwise, it's pay-what-you-want, so you can try/play it for free!

You see, I WOULD add milliseconds, but I think the fact that there's a three-way tie for world record is hilarious... So yeah.

Forum: Mirror's Edge

Thread: Question about TAS

Started by: LamborghiniBottle777LamborghiniBottle777

It's a couple things. The first barrier is the software used to TAS Mirror's Edge; it isn't publicly available by the mod-maker (to my knowledge). Second, there's some controversy surrounding that particular Prologue TAS, as Faith seems to move in impossible ways. To be more specific, some runners speculate that the method of TASing used to produce that video resulted in a recording that couldn't actually be done by a normal instance of the game engine. To my knowledge, the speculation is just that—speculation—since nobody has the software to try to replicate the TAS. Lastly, TASing is time consuming, which is another factor.

I would love to see a proper TAS of Mirror's Edge someday, but I don't think we'll get there anytime soon.

Alright, I'll work trying to find some of those "skills" and, in the meantime, I'll just do the thing I.N. does for Oltanis.

Thread: Help with IJs of all sorts

Started by: BlackbeltGingaNinjaBlackbeltGingaNinja

I've been fooling around with RAC tech for the past couple weeks, and I've noticed I'm not getting as much height as other top runners from all my IJs (clankless, heli-pack, and ground pound cancels). I find that I fall further during my wrench swing then other runners.

I'm not sure if this is linked to me mis-inputting / inputting badly, or if it's because I'm playing on NTSC PS2.

I can upload video if that will help. The main reason I bring this up is because I can't seem to do the NG+ skip on Oltanis. Thanks!

Thread: Sliding wall climb

Started by: TickbornTickborn

It's a pretty hard trick, it took me an hourish to figure out, then another hour of practice to get semi-consistent. It's a moderate time save, but I personally wouldn't waste time throwing away runs to it unless you get it really consistent / you're going for (at least) a sub 45 time.

Happens to me a lot in "glitchless" categories. Best way to avoid it is by running on the mat for a second longer. Like Heki said, not useful.

Love the PS2 games. RAC has amazing movement, Sly Cooper has some good skips, the Jaks are interesting runs, Spyros are really fluid and fun... a really underrated era of speedrunnable games imo.

Thread: Game-time is not a thing anymore

Started by: BlackbeltGingaNinjaBlackbeltGingaNinja

Some of you may have noticed that game-time was removed from the leaderboards. It just sometimes, uh, wouldn't work. Example: the run I just got had a game-time of 00:01. Unless we get a no-loads timer (lol) or someone feels the need to time out loads, RTA will be this leaderboard's preferred timing method.

Thanks for reading.

Thread: Elevator timing ??

MikeHall, read from here down, might help!

tl;dr you need high framerates to do elevators. Obviously, framerate is based on computer performance. Follow Chops' setup tutorial, play on lowest video settings, turn vsync off... those will help raise your framerate and get higher elevators. You can check your framerate using Steam overlay. I don't know the minimum FPS for that elevator.

I submitted Dishonored for Charity Marathon 2 (https://horaro.org/cm2016/schedule) for a Saturday timeslot. I'm aware I don't represent the community well with my mid-pack time. Are there any other runners with more consistent times who would want to take my place?
