Yes, this leaderboard uses the 1964 emulator.

Thread: GoldenEye XBLA Rankings

Started by: FitterSpaceFitterSpace

I've made two google sheets that can serve as a rankings page for this game. One is for controller runs and the other is for Mouse & Keyboard runs. These sheets give us a points system similar to the one on the-elite.net, which encourages people to play more of the game to get a higher score.

Controller:

Mouse & Keyboard:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DlVILX3dpjVDKb98Ydinj1Qnnh-_6vzASAeXOBdkJs0/edit?usp=sharing

Google sheets is not an ideal place to have a ranking system, but it's the best we have for now. There is an effort to get a real website up and running but that's going to take some time. In the meantime, this google sheet will be good enough. The main reason this exists is because speedrun.com's individual level leaderboard has a really lackluster user interface that makes it impossible to see all the mouse & keyboard times on a single page. The only way to see them on speedrun.com is to click each level/difficulty combination individually and look at the times from there. The spreadsheets also have some other nice features, like a point ranking system and an "overall combined time" section that encourages people to lower their times even if they already have a world record. I've also linked the controller spreadsheet on the sidebar, for easier access. If a real website is made for XBLA rankings, that will go there instead.

Definitely. I'm fine with whatever changes they make to it, as long as it's easier to view subcategories on IL pages without having to click on each level/category combination.

Earlier I posted about how I think the IL leaderboards need an overhaul and I thought this kind of design would help a lot for IL subcategories:

Obviously I'm not a graphics designer or anything so it looks pretty bad, but the idea is there. I'm confident that the site developers could make something similar that looks a lot better than my mock-up. This would be so useful to a lot of speedrunning communities.

@skyweissskyweiss The front page only shows 25 runs at the moment, so if you have your front page set to show more than that, it only shows games you're following. I'm sure it's just a glitch and will be fixed soon.

I like the front page so far. I was about to complain here about the text being too hard to read, but the spacing between the letters was changed when I refreshed the page so I'm pretty sure they're working on it as I type this. Overall I quite like the new design and I think the rest of the site should go in the same direction.

Thread: cheating in speedruns

Started by: cha0zcha0z

There are some potential solutions that could be a lot easier than that. First, press F3 and you'll see the frame time. At 60 frames per second, that's 16.6 milliseconds per frame. If you timescale to slow down the emulator, the frame time goes up because each frame lasts longer. So it's an easy way to tell if someone is slowing the emulator down. There are some other solutions too but nothing concrete yet.

IL leaderboards with subcategories are clunky. There's no obvious way to see all the times listed for a subcategory except whichever one is the default. I think a good way to handle this would be to have some kind of filter at the top of the screen, similar to the full-game leaderboards, that lets you choose the subcategory and see all those times for all IL categories.

Right now, the only way to see a time for a subcategory IL is to click on each level/category combination you care about and see the times for each one individually. Here's a real world example: GoldenEye 007 (XBLA) is about to have a split for controller and mouse+keyboard controls. This is fine for full-game runs because subcategories are useful there. But lets say Mouse+keyboard becomes the default subcategory for IL's. If that happens, there is currently no way to show the IL board for all the controller times. You would have to click on each level+category individually and then click the subcategory to see the controller times for that one stage.

Right now, the only good way we can separate controller and mouse/keyboard is to either create a new leaderboard for it, or create new levels and categories. For example, there are 20 levels in the game, but we could add another 20 just for keyboard/mouse so that way all runs for both controllers and keyboard/mouse are listed at the same time. We could also create 3 more IL categories, so there would be "Agent (controller)", "Secret Agent (controller)", "00 Agent (controller)", "Agent (mouse and keyboard)", "Secret Agent (mouse and keyboard)", and "00 Agent (mouse and keyboard)". But you can already tell that would be pretty clunky, too. There's also the possibility of simply hosting the rankings off-site, like the-elite already does for the N64 game. But I think we want to keep it on sr.c if possible. In short, the IL leaderboards need more attention because the user interface isn't good enough to make things easy.

Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: lewisandsparklewisandspark

If what you say about alkamaass is true, then I agree that they shouldn't be a GoldenEye XBLA mod. I think these games and their communities need to be treated fairly and with respect, and that kind of behavior is not acceptable, in my opinion.

I believe everybody that currently moderates GoldenEye XBLA should be removed and replaced with DuskyLW and DaisyFan. DuskyLW truly cares about GoldenEye speedrunning and its communities for both N64 and emulators, and DaisyFan is an outstanding 007 series speedrunner who is passionate about all the games and their small, dedicated communities. Those two are, by far, the most qualified people to moderate what I think is going to be a popular game to speedrun. As the XBLA community grows, they should add new moderators as they see fit.

Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: lewisandsparklewisandspark

I can back up what @alkamaassalkamaass is saying. I'm a 007 series moderator (and an active member of many 007 speedrun communities) and I feel like the way the GoldenEye XBLA moderators run the leaderboard is a little inappropriate and unprofessional. To me it feels like some streamer and their community rushed to make a leaderboard for a popular game so they could benefit from it, rather than letting people that run the game moderate it. I'm not saying that I should moderate it, but I can list a few people that I think would make for a better fit than the people currently on there.

If that's not bad enough, the same group of people made another leaderboard for GoldenEye N64 because they don't like the community on the-elite (understandable, but inappropriate, in my opinion). They also made a leaderboard for Project-007, a game with no title, release date, screenshots, or gameplay anybody has seen (https://www.speedrun.com/project_007). The discord link on that leaderboard goes to their personal discord server. Does anybody think that #cookie-jar-general in the Bambywamby31 community server is a good place to organize 007 speedrunning? I just think that the way that game is being handled right now is a total mismanagement of what could be a seriously awesome community.

Thread: Discord server

Started by: alkamaassalkamaass

I think it's a little odd that the discord link on this page goes to what looks to me like a personal discord server. I think it would be more appropriate if the game had a dedicated discord server just for discussion about it. There are a few 007 speedrun servers I could see it being a part of, like the-elite or the 007 series discord, but I think it would be best to create a server specifically for GE XBLA instead of using your own community server for it.

Thread: AMD and Xenia

Started by: bambywamby31bambywamby31

Right now the game has a lot of problems for people with AMD hardware. Looks like for the time being, it only works if you've got an Nvidia GPU. It'll surely be fixed eventually but it might take some time for the Xenia developers to make it work for everybody.

Thread: Autosplitter by ShikenNuggets working properly?

Started by: jonnyakijonnyaki

Assuming you downloaded the splits from the resources page, it's probably because 100% runs need 2 extra splits because of a route difference. If you remove the last 2 splits in zone 3 (one for the secret level and the other to return back to area 4) then it should work for any%. I've edited the title of the splits on the resources page to reflect that. Sorry for any confusion.

@QuakerCraftQuakerCraft
Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get a notification that you posted here. I haven't played the DS version, but isn't it essentially a different game than the console version? If so, it would probably be best for Rogue Agent DS to have its own leaderboard with you as the moderator. I've never played that version before so I don't think I would be the right person to moderate for it. If you want to request for a Rogue Agent DS leaderboard, go to https://www.speedrun.com/games and click on the "Request Game" button in the top right corner. My only request is that the title of the game on the leaderboard should be something like "GoldenEye: Rogue Agent (DS)" to fit in with the other James Bond handheld leaderboards.

Thread: Upcoming console release

Started by: GjenfodtGjenfodt

What sequence breaks are you referring to? I'm guessing the console versions have shorter crouch jumps like the older PC versions did. in the 1.02 PC version, they made it where Shelly brings her legs up more when you crouch in the air, and that lets you reach places you can't get to on 1.0. They were gonna change it back in the upcoming 1.1 update, but thankfully they're keeping it the same so pretty much everything still works in that version. Assuming the console version has the old crouch jump behavior, that makes a few tricks impossible, but most of the game should be the same at least. Check out some of the older PC runs and that should be more like what you'll do on console. One of these days I'll get around to buying the switch version so I can test this stuff too.

Thread: Upcoming console release

Started by: GjenfodtGjenfodt

Sorry, I forgot to add version numbers for console. Unfortunately all the version numbers are a bit confusing because this leaderboard was created back when the PC version was in early access. So Updates 1 and 2 are for the preview campaign (there are other updates too but nobody ran them at the time), then the 1.0, 1.02, and 1.02a are post-release PC versions. Once again, there are other versions on PC nobody ran.

I'll add the console version numbers later today. When you do a run, if the version you're playing on isn't listed, just select one anyway and make a note of it in your run comments and I'll add the number you want. I'll do my best to keep it updated and add new versions as they're released, but the version numbers are different between the different consoles so I might miss some.
