Hey all, I don't know what happens but when I try to download these splits (zip file), I get redirected to a user called "Splits", although the link is correct and leads to a zip file.

I don't think that this should be necessary. Same thing with talking to the schoolmaster right after talking to Zoe after returning to twinsun. Imo it should be fine to just head to the Pearl

Since i'm not a mod i can't answer that. Imo it is an exploit and not a glitch which means that it is totally legit in a glitchless run.

I think it is not a Glitch. It's an exploit.

Thread: Restructured page

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Hey there!

I wasn't really satisfied with the old page so I changed some things:

- deleted difficulty separation (since it's the same route and the run depends more on luck than on skill / execution on higher difficulties)
- deleted in-game timer (the PC version becomes pretty bad when it comes to performance. Just don't capture/time in-game time to stabilize your game (gonna get slow at some point anyway...)
-Added Turok Speedrunning Discord to "Discord"-tab

Note:due to the changes there might be some deleted runs. If you are a victim, please submit your runs again.

That's it for now!

Thread: No SG obsolete? / Glitchless: What is allowed?

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Hey there,

Although I'm not a runner (yet…), I was confused about the category NoSG because nearly all the banned tricks and glitches aren't in use for any% anymore (e.g. the jump save glitch is pretty much obsoleted by meca warps and holo clips). Imho there is no point in running noSG since it would be too similar to any% now. Just my 2 cents. 🙂

Another thing is in glitchless runs. I watched the current WR and the runner used to skip the gazogem factory by jumping in a specific manner to reach the “balcony”. I think the rules are made by the community so I would love to get a whole catalogue of tricks that are not allowed (or are allowed in specific places). For example is the trick after the third fragment (where you just walk through the fence after defeating the boss with the glove) allowed or not? I mean it's just walking through a gap in the fence...

Thanks in advance. Would love to become a part of LBA Speedrunning after all this time. 😛

Greetings
DvD

Thread: Splitting up PC and PS

Started by: lylyahikolylyahiko

I think it would be more fitting to have seperate leaderboard-pages like Turok 2 and the remaster have. Both games are way too different from each other (and in the case of Turok 2 both have different engines, too).

Hey there! There is a Discord Server for the Turok Speedrun Community, but there is no channel for Evolution, yet. But I highly doubt that this is a big thing to add. 🙂

Thread: Should "set_cameraoffset x" be banned?

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

The thing is that all the things you can use with the "read"-command you can type in one by one. Saves some time to do it all simultanously with the read-command. And there is no way you can cheat with this command since the console shows what is executed and what is written in the file.

Thread: Should "set_cameraoffset x" be banned?

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Its an option that doesn't show up in the Options-Menu. There is no command before that, that activates it (such as sv_cheats 1 in half-life). In the run i used a command called "read xxx.txt" which loads more than one other command simultanously. but i have to write this xxx.txt before i can use "read". So i have to "manipulate" (i have to write in this xxx.txt before starting the game) a file.

So its a mixed bag

Thread: Should "set_cameraoffset x" be banned?

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Hey there!

"set_cameraoffset x" is a command that sets the camera offset in relation to Turok's actual position.

I am thinking about banning this option/command from speedrunning because it allows shooting through walls in a specific manner that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

See the "glitch" that is possible with this command here:

Some say that it's just a normal option that is nowhere to be found in the Options-Menu. But on the other hand it's just like a command like some cheating commands in half-life for example.

I'm not entirely sure about this one...

Hey there!

Since I am in the mood of taking turok 2 speedrunning serious I've added some categories for practice purposes. Feel free to ask for more categories. :3

yea, that was it already...

Have a nice day 🙂

Like the machine skipping by rolling up the machine in the PC version (can approve it works)

Thread: N64 IL-Leaderboard?

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Hey there again,

Some interested newbies who speedrunning Turok 2 on N64 have asked me why there is no IL-Leaderboard for them. To tell you the truth I don't know why.

If there is any more interest in this I will contact Bismuth9 (supermod) since only he can change the page in that manner.

That was it, have a nice day you guys :3

Started by: DvD_01DvD_01

Hey there!

Just in case you missed it: there is a guide available now which is simply put just a glitch overview for Turok 2 classic PC version. I would have written a complete level-to-level guide by now but there is way to many changing in my private life right now. I don't know how long this will be but how it is now, I really can't do anything videogame-related.

And here is a question:
If there is somebody who runs on N64 and has the time to write a glitch guide for the N64 version of the game, I will publish that one as well since it might help people learning and understanding the game on their specific version.

That's it, have a nice day guys. :3

Oh, and when you have any questions, hit me up on the Turok 2 Discord or on my private discord. I'm not overly active on twitch right now.

Hey there! There is no restrictions on which version of the game you are running. It might actually be interesting cuz I didn't even know there was a Japanese version of Turok 2 lol

Since I'm running PC only I can't answer that. I think it might influence the overall performance only a little bit.

I'm looking forward to your runs. Good luck!

I followed your suggestions because why not?^^

This actually might be a good thing. The runs on both platforms are pretty different from each other since the save-related glitches the PC-Version has can cut like 2h off an N64-Run. Let's see what i can do here. 🙂

Other than e.g. the Turok 2 Remastered version the difficulty settings are not that different from each other. Short: there is not that much of a difference that it would be necessary to separate them (imo).

misc is a good idea though there are not many guys running the classic Turok 2

Hey there!

Glad you're interested in running this game!

afaik there is no complete Single-Segment Run on the Internet for classic Turok 2. The only run I think is not Segmented is this one:
I can't verify it as legit and unspliced cuz I'm not at home right now.
