  Amberdrive

Hey there,
I speedrun this game quite often and only cannot stream it because my PC and my internet bandwidth is too slow. Also recording via Fraps drops my FPS to 10-20. Maybe with a new PC soon...
I wanna try to get a (small) community running.

However, there is only a "beat the game" category, which is literally any% according to the rules. Plus I think any% is quite boring for viewers, since most time you spend is flying from place A to B only.

The used glitch mechanic (strafe/fly) also doesn't work in the latest version of the game (Origin/Steam/Whereever) but only on cracked, modified and old physical copy versions.

Therefore I suggest a new category like "Delta - Glitchless" (or/and "AnyDiff - Glitchless") which has some challenges, low RNG, different strategies and needs close to perfection in player mechanics.
Another category would be like "Delta - Glitchless - All Objectives" (or/and "AnyDiff - Gltichless - All Objectives").

Thoughts?

It's cool to see that people still are interested in this.

To be honest I think the flying glitch/circle jump is what makes this speedrun exciting both to run and to watch, but I see what you mean in your post. It sucks that it is hard to acquire a copy the game with the flying glitch/circle jump. I wish such a version could be purchased digitally.

More categories could be interesting but personally I think that there needs to be speedruns out of a category first, then it could be added to the site. As far as I know there are no full ss runs of glitchless or any other difficulty at this point, making the addition of categories unnecessary, as they would just be empty.

I'll be looking forwards to seeing your runs when you are able to record them Amberdrive.

I get your point that it is advisable to have runs in a category before creating that category. An empty category could defintely lead easily to false assumptions. However, maybe others will start playing that category as soon as it is available. Let's see what I can do...

So, here we go:
My first upload and recording of my glitchless delta run.
As mentioned FPS drops from time to time but quite satisfied nevertheless.
Now I'm gonna contact other runners to challenge my time. Let's see if that keeps things rolling.

With a new high-end PC I started running this game at 60+ fps and maximum graphics again. Back into business.
Got a new PB

I contacted some (old) crysis runners to challenge my time, let's see about the feedback.
David (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDB9w1SClrrFe-4HT72webg) who recently placed 5th on the any% category tried first time on the glitchless delta category. I'm thrilled to see another (successful) run 🙂
