Thread: Levels

Hi.

I know we're only a small game here but Im looking to add individual levels for each track so we can run those too. Will be timed using the in game lap timer, and obviously have video evidence. Timer only shows with NO Weapons mode.

Thought it would be nice having something easy, fast and fun to run. ill work out the rules once i work out the SRC side of things as im inexperienced with it still.

Open to suggestions or whatever.

Just a reminder if anyone wants to relive the beginning of the end haha.

Its actually pretty interesting reading thru this again and seeing peoples reasons for and against -ns, rta and igt.

The discussion however was about 3am my time and i was lying in a hospital bed i couldnt listen in. I only caught the last half hour and the mood had settled but i got the vibe the loudest voices that day are what prevailed, not the feelings of the community as a whole. like i said tho i wasnt there so i cant really speculate, just a vibe.

Fishing for the jail setup is hard enough, whats one more condition? haha

We've been told the benefits of IGT so if it were to be taken away there could be scrutiny for why it was implemented in the first place.

Thread: Category Layout and Definitions

Started by: muffineatermuffineater

As far as the PX stuff goes, i cant speak for everyone and my memory is a bit battered but when i initially stumbled across d2 speedrunning on speeddemos and saw segmented runs, i put a note aside to look into it and forgot. then about a year later i guess i stumbled onto it again but this time on youtube then twitch. The guys that stood out were Nightfall, Ryu, MrLlama and Teo. They all ran p1 (maybe nightfall started running px more im not sure).

I just assume most people initially ran p1 coz of those guys. it was the standard run. i dont think the boards had px till a while after. too much time invested into p1 for people to change.

learning where exits are is helpful and learning where they are not can save alot of time too.

and also if you take up blazers suggestion id recommend a barb so u can run around in a frenzy yelling at all the weaklings 😃

Thread: Looking for a rom DL

If you keep practicing im sure youll get more consistent. I dont know this for a fact but im assuming one of the reasons we have to use mGBA emulator is that it runs closest to the real hardware (FPS etc) so i dont think a different emulator will help. but like i said i dont know that for a fact.

now that ive done about 100 manip attempts and understand the npc movement/frames interaction better im usually within 4 frames. are you adjusting your frame in flowtimer to allow for the npc movement? if you write the trainer id or frame number wrong thats gunna mess ya up too obviously.

Thread: Tips for a new speed runner

Started by: WebHead1998WebHead1998

Hi there. bumpin this thread just wanted to ask a question. i took the above advice and got mGBA for save stating a squirtle for practice. Is Modest with 31 HP, 20 ATK, 11 DEF 30 SPA 1 SPD AND 22 SPD ok? or should i try and find one better? i ran 2:49 with it with alot of pauses to read guides and resets on deaths.

thanks.

Hi There. The Moderator for Death Rally https://www.speedrun.com/death_rally has been inactive for 6 months. I have runs pending. I have created a new thread in the forum with no response and also tried to contact them via youtube with no response. He/She has no other social media contacts on page. I have read the moderation rules and could moderate the game as a last resort. I have Diablo 2 runs on here and I think I am active enough on the site to cover the commitments of this small game/community.

Thread: -act5 runs

Started by: blazer-flamewingblazer-flamewing

On my 1st attempt i took the wp at frigid, clicked on the top of the list (thinking it would be Harrogath) haha.
then on 2nd attempt didnt buy more tps after my 1st shop... on my 3rd i finally finished at 17 mins i just ran normal sorc speedman spec with nova/static.

This IS fun, good way to break up a grind or do something different. Id run it if it was a category. Short and sweet.

Thread: Classic -> Expansion conversion discussion

Started by: DonForgoDonForgo

i initially swayed both ways on this. Its LOD so should be LOD toon creation, but i didnt think that for very long. At the end of the day if somebody WR's with classic strat, everybody running that catagory has the option to start as classic or lod. everyone in the same boat. Its no biggie.

Its no different from any other strat, if u wanna compete u gotta use the best strat, or find your own.

Thread: Hi Im new. Quick question please don't sue me

Started by: SawalSawal

This is a great little community.

A suggestion would be, if u haven't already, check twitch for D2 runners streaming and check if they have discords. Discord can be a great resource for asking questions. Also some runners have their info on their speedrun profile page, twitch/youtube etc.

Also theres a couple of good map reading tutorials on youtube. A lot of the maps and "tiles" are directional, for example if you're looking for an exit you know is "left" it mostly doesnt mean West, its relative to the entrance tile or other tiles. Understanding the Left, Right, Up concept helps alot when starting out.

Good Luck have fun 🙂

Thread: We need to address -ns

Started by: IndrekIndrek

(edited: )

Can we have a poll? Im sure it wouldnt take much effort to share it around. Streamers can mention it on stream or in discords. It could give an idea of what runners and viewers are thinking.

I dont wanna sound harsh here, but theres probly less than 20 WR capable runners, I think their feelings on -ns and RTA vs IGT should be weighted accordingly. They have the most to gain and lose.

Thread: Jail Strats / Seeded Maps / Battle.net Maps

Started by: RyuQuezacotlRyuQuezacotl

Ive only submitted a few runs but have been trying to run this game on and off for 2 to 3 years or so now. My submitted times dont reflect this. Long story short i have had kidney failure for the last 5 years. spent 3.5 of those on dialysis, nearly died, have since had a transplant and other procedures. From the dialysis I have nerve damage in my hands and legs and cant sit at a computer for more than 2 hours or so.

Hence why personally I really like the idea of seeded runs. i cant play for 4 or 5 hours a day to wait for the right rng run to happen. i try once every few days for a good ish run and thats it. With a seeded or even the battle net style runs i can try to compare myself against other runners without also competing with other runners time investment and availability.

I dont think adding seeded will take away anything from the current categories, if anything we might see new runners. Right now is a great time to be a D2 runner and also a viewer.

Just my 2 cents.

Thread: Few questions for moders

Started by: 327327

i can see an argument for both. having a single Category like “Players 1 Normal Druid” then every druid run submitted on that one list but put (Hardcore) next to name or time for HC runs.

but as a mediocre runner i like that SC is its own category honestly. and i run to improve my own times like Teo said. maybe be in the top 10% of a category one day....
