Thread: Possible incorrect timing?

Started by: EightbitSteveEightbitSteve

I was browsing this game for short WR's. Whenever I do a record that uses milliseconds I always time the record using a frame counting software. In this case I used Avidemux which is from what I understand the most widely accepted method for timing runs. On Teagan's run the clock at the bottom and the split clock are out of sync. At the start of the video the bottom clock starts on the correct frame at 0 and the splits start about 34 milliseconds later.

At the end frame the splits say 2:19.74 and the timer at the bottom says 2:20.10. The clock at the bottom and the splits are still not synced up and are now .36 apart.

When I have the software count the frames instead of using the timers it says the segment is 2:20.307 and not 2:20.018 like the record indicates. It would seem to me that since the timers are both wrong and seem to get further out of sync as the video progresses that frame counting is the only accurate method of verifying this time.

EDIT / UPDATE: I just timed the second place run that is timed at 2:20.18 using two different frame counting methods. Avidemux and www.watchframebyframe.com and the time was 02:19.83 using both methods.

Does the Any Clear category include co-op runs? If not can we please add a co-op category?

@Saxman2012 said he had a run he was going to upload. I saw his video on YouTube and it is a bit faster than the run we have recorded. I don't want to upload our run just to have it beaten immediately when he uploads. I am going to wait awhile for him to surface before uploading.

When can we expect the categories to be added? Thanks for doing this Antlerz.

Those types of things are usually added as a tab on a particular rom set. It's easy to add if the mod is watching this forum.

I agree we need a 2 player - 6 player category. I have a run ready to upload if a three player category is added.

Can we please get a Co-op category? I have an already completed run for the 6 player UCB rom version. Lets start with the 3 players first. Thanks.

Started by: EnigmaGameZEnigmaGameZ

Depending on what move you are doing the enemies will respond in a specific way. I urge you to watch some of the other speed runs to see exactly when and how they do a down stab move. The game is very intricate on how these are performed. Even a slight variation can cause you to miss.

Should probably set it up so you get notifications for future items.

I suppose it was because I have no published runs in this game. In any case I am happy to have you be a moderator. I guess it is time to upload my runs. I'll have them sorted out in the next couple of days. Thanks so much.

Congrats on becoming a moderator. Now we can finally get moving on some things long overdue. I would guess your first order of business is to ban that trash run. Second I hope is adding a 2 Player category. I will upload the run shortly after that.

Hello. I would like to be added as a moderator for the "Golden Axe" series. I have attempted to contact the admins a few times and it has been at least two months with no responses. I have some runs I want to upload to that series. Thank you.

Started by: EightbitSteveEightbitSteve

I think we are officially done trying to improve the CoOp run. Is the run I have perfect? No it is not. It is however the product of eight months of attempts and nearly 2500 rerecords. The randomness in two player is just insane. I feel so sorry for anyone who attempts to beat our run. Be prepared for a lot of pain and suffering. We are just so burned out on this game and I just can't take it anymore. We are gonna move on to a different game for now and let other people try and match it before coming back to it.
