Thread: Submitting a run with two or one digit milliseconds is flawed

Started by: CryZeCryZe

When submitting and specifying the milliseconds, most timers just show 2 digits, which is why most people only submit their runs with 2 digits for the milliseconds. If they specify "69", it doesn't get interpreted as .69, but as .069 which is clearly wrong. If they would've wanted to submit the time as .069, they would need to put a 0 in front, just like in .069, if they don't, they most likely don't want to submit the time as that. I've had to fix a lot of verified runs in the past, cause neither the runner, nor the other moderators noticed this, so this is definitely a common issue. Probably with almost all if not all runs that have a digit other than 0 in the third place and a 0 in the first place.

Thread: Following game and notifications update

Started by: Lighnat0rLighnat0r

Did the notification system break completely or something? My last notification came in at 8/2/2015 11:51:15 PM and there should've been a lot more notifications since then. Other users don't get any notifications either.

It's interesting that the search uses a different algorithm than the API: http://www.speedrun.com/api/v1/games?name=edge&max=1

Thread: [Suggestion] Virtual Categories

Started by: CryZeCryZe

I just came across this leaderboard http://www.speedrun.com/lok_sr/PC_30FPS#Any_Glitched and noticed that they abuse the individual levels to distinguish between platforms cause they are not comfortable with all platforms being in a single leaderboard. Others make multiple games for multiple platforms and others even make multiple games per version (Terraria). You could theoretically filter the leaderboard through the combo boxes, but that can become kind of annoying, which is why quite some leaderboards like the Legacy of Kain leaderboard abuse the system in some way to get more leaderboards out of it. My suggestion would be to allow the creation of a virtual category. A virtual category would be an automatic combination of filters that are automatically shown as a named category. This way people don't need to abuse the system while also having separate "categories" for the different situations. This would also allow runs to be part of multiple categories (1 actual category + some virtual categories), which does make a lot of sense. Someone running Any% No Tuner in The Wind Waker, is also implicitly running the Any% category, which is why the Any% No Tuner category could be a virtual category.

They talk about this a bit here:

"we're working hard [..] to make Twin Galaxies THE place, that's it." "We definitely have more tracks than any other place"

Thread: Impersonation

Started by: InTheLittleWoodInTheLittleWood

Well, it's not for malicious reasons, but that guy probably shouldn't impersonate him anymore in the future, which he always will with that name. So imo he should either be "renamed" (by asking probably) or just banned.

Thread: Impersonation

Started by: InTheLittleWoodInTheLittleWood

I told Sgt. Kabukiman and pac about it. Btw, you should delete your Best Segments in the Run Editor. Since today's route was a bit different than yesterday's route, your best segments will be wrong and that will confuse LiveSplit in a lot of ways. So I'd suggest simply dragging your mouse cursor over all the cells in the Best Segments column and then pressing the Delete Key on your Keyboard to make them use the current run. You could do it for individual segments (in the future for example), but this time it probably makes more sense to just do it for all segments.

Thread: Introducing SpeedrunComSharp...

You could query if the World Record for a single game changes. I don't think you can query for World Records in general. The API doesn't really support the leaderboards yet (only through the legacy Records API).

Thread: Introducing SpeedrunComSharp...

Started by: CryZeCryZe

SpeedrunComSharp is an Open Source .NET Library that can be used to easily interact with the speedrun.com API. It provides 100% of the functionality that is provided by the API. It also provides the legacy Records API to query the Leaderboards and Personal Bests of Users, which is currently not possible with the speedrun.com API itself. Traversing the API can either be done by using the Clients provided through the SpeedrunComClient class, which provide a 1:1 mapping of the speedrun.com API, but also through the objects returned by the API themselves. Once you have an object, you can use its properties to easily traverse the API and get to other objects.

Here's how that can look like: Example Usage

There's also a lot of helper objects like the "category.Leaderboard" which provide objects of the Records API, that are obviously not part of the standard speedrun.com API.

The Library should also be compatible with Mono and therefore run on pretty much any system. Looking forward to your feedback 🙂

Thread: [Bug Report] Game Forums don't properly link to Series Forums

Started by: CryZeCryZe

If you are in a game forum like the Wind Waker HD Forum, there's the hierarchy of the forum up top:
Forums - Zelda - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

If you click on Zelda, it directs you to the Series page and not the actual Zelda forum, which might not necessarily be a bug, but it's against the user's expectations and makes navigating the forums unnecessarily hard.

Also, if you are in a forum thread there, the Series isn't mentioned at all anymore. Maybe that should be changed too.

Thread: .lss files for splits

Started by: ThatDrunkenDwarfThatDrunkenDwarf

Yeah, there's a splits i/o field when submitting and editing a run. You can go to http://splits.io/ to upload your splits and then just put the ID of the URL in the splits i/o field of your run. The splits will then appear under your run and people will be able to download them. LiveSplit 1.6 will also have a speedrun.com Browser where you can look at the leaderboards of games and download the splits directly (if they are available)

Thread: [Bug Report] Leaderboard Header unaligned due to inline-block

Started by: CryZeCryZe

The Header of a Leaderboard saying "Leaderboard" is sometimes really misaligned due to the inline-block property used. Here's an example of how misaligned it can be:
http://puu.sh/idZjA.jpg
This is from the Splatoon Leaderboard.

The issue is caused by the
.floatedheader h1,
.floatedheader h2 {
display: inline-block;
}
beginning in line 1309 of this CSS file.

display: block; fixes it

You should also be able to follow games and users to get notified about PBs of those users / games. Not sure if this is planned. With all those notifications, it should probably be some kind of Timeline actually.

Thread: Total Run time

Started by: Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531

LiveSplit will have that beginning with 1.6. It's slightly wrong cause we didn't record the history for splits that you resetted (just those splits, the other splits of a run are all recorded), but we do that beginning with 1.6, but everything beginning with 1.6 will be handled accurately.

Thread: [Bug Report] Users appear multiple times on the leaderboards

Started by: CryZeCryZe

For some reason users are now appearing multiple times on the A Hat in Time leaderboards:

http://www.speedrun.com/ahitbb#Any

Edit: This seems to be the case for every leaderboard apparently. All submitted runs are being shown, not just the Personal Bests. Might be an issue with the "Platforms / Regions obsolete each other" implementation.

Edit 2: Apparently Versions are not obsoleting each other by default anymore (since there seems to be a setting now). So I guess this can be closed. I'm not sure if this should've been the default for already existing leaderboards.

Started by: CryZeCryZe

Tahoma is not available on most systems that are not Windows, so a full Font Stack is needed to make sure similar fonts are used on other systems.

This would be great for simply downloading the WR splits (we could even automate that in LiveSplit).
