Thread: Separate PS4 board

I don't know enough about the xbox one version to have an opinion about whether or not it should be grouped in with the PS4.

Thread: Separate PS4 board

Started by: EightbitSteveEightbitSteve

I would like to request that a PS4 board be created. There are some significant differences between the PC version and the PS4 version which I will briefly highlight below.

1. Patches: For PC it is possible to play the game on a previous patch. This allows for glitches that simply cannot be performed on PS4 version. The largest of these glitches are the damage that the Elite bat and other melee weapons do to bosses. Honestly this should be reason enough to have a separate board because comparing them is pointless.

2. The parachute trick can not be performed in the same way that it can be on the PC version. The PS4 makes you hold the parachute button down for about a second before deploying it and is placed on one of the analogue sticks used for movement. This cannot be remapped on the PS4. On PC it is simply a button press with no 1 second delay. This may not seem like much but it means that a really key trick in the game where you access the roof stash simply cannot be completed as early. This is also relevant in a few other places throughout the game.

These two reasons make comparing PS4 runs to PC runs laughable. It is simply not competitively possible to compete against PC runs using the PS4 and therefore in my opinion the PS4 should have its own categories on this board.

I would assume the XBOXOne would also need its own boards but I have not played the game on that platform and cannot comment on the differences. I would assume the patching thing I mentioned earlier would be very relevant though.

don't feel bad at all man. I appreciate at the response. Just want to get the timing sorted out. I do not understand how Toads time was determined at all.

Thread: Rejected run and Timing question

Started by: EightbitSteveEightbitSteve

I am not upset at all about my rejected run. It is a bit of a bummer that the rules were updated after my run was approved for so long but at least I am helping institute change.

As far as timing goes I have had this problem on a few other boards and I just have some general questions about how you time the runs. It doesn't really matter that much as long as all the runs are timed the same but when comparing my own runs to runs on this board things are a bit weird.

I use Avidemux to auto calculate length because I can easily set a start and end frame and it just spits out the time for me. I think the confusion comes when people are using a different software or using fuzzy math to determine the time based on the frame rate and number of frames.

Assuming the start frame is when you press A on the end command and the end frame is the first frame of the bob sled score screen (which is what the rules say) then my software tells me Toads run is a 3:32.067 which is light years away from the 3:19 that is it is listed at on this board. The run I am about to upload to replace my rejected run clocks in at 3:24.650.

My question is should I submit my run assuming that there is a 13 second difference in our timing methods like in Toad's run or should I just submit it at 3:24.650 and let you sort it out.

My apologies! I didn't even realize that board existed.

I have no idea what you even mean. There is a 18 phases category, a 100k points category, and a 8 phases category.

I totally missed this reply. Can you try and contact him for me. I have attempted to contact him in the past with no luck. I would like to get this sorted out so I can submit a run.

@Dangerless I will contact the person who keeps uploading single player records @WDRickGrimes047 and see if he wants to become a mod. It still does not solve the mystery of how @WDRickGrimes047 is getting his runs approved frequently when the mods list have no active social presence and other runs are getting totally ignored.

We have submitted a run to the Sunset Riders (Sega Genesis) board under the co-op category. The run has been unverified for over 30 days. I posted on the forums of that game with no success and tried to contact all the moderators who seem to have left gaming all together. During this period other runs have been approved including a few in the single player categories. I am not sure who is approving those runs and completely ignoring ours. I have also resubmitted the run hoping to gain the attention of whomever is obviously still monitoring that board but to no avail.I do not wish to be a moderator for the game, what can be done? Thanks.

A run was just approved for the normal category days ago so somebody is definitely monitoring it. I just want to know why that run was approved and mine is a month old?

I have had a pending co-op run for over a month now. I am just curious if this even been looked at or if I need to escalate because the moderators are no longer active.
