I don't think there is.
We'd have to set one up.

Thread: Optimal language?

Started by: Gamesfan34260Gamesfan34260

I know it might be a lot of work but could anyone see if there's a time difference with the different languages?
I imagine English is a lot slower than German for instance since we naturally talk quite slow.

No, there's no lag on emu assuming your PC isn't a potato. I have more performance issues from OBS than I do S&D on PCSX2.

Whilst it'd be cool to have that it won't help.
The main problem I think is that the game slows down on console when it lags, which it does...a lot...to the point where some runners quit entirely cuz they couldn't handle the framerate issues.
So the main issue stems from the PS2 itself having performance issues which couldn't be resolved, it might be fine on PS3's back compatibility though.

It's been a few days and no updates.
Is there any progress on what categories will be introduced / what they'll be called? (I'm personally quite fond of my "all missions%" idea)

I'm not so sure it'd be 2 hours, let's assume each playthrough is half an hour, only the final run would need to be longer cuz of the battle arena and races, so let's tack an hour to the start, you've already likely got the money from the main game to buy all the equipment so all you need to really do is find a way to consistently win the mini-games which should be easy enough with the right equipment...maybe approaching the 2 hour mark?

Well you get every tank on the screen when you confirm after a mission but you also get more tanks when you do alternative versions of missions like when you fight in the town rather than fighting the plane or I think when you fight the first castle and the run-down looking town (I seriously remember none of the names) in the opposite order of the speedrun but I could be wrong about the latter one.

Maybe what Rubii wants is an "all missions%" or "mini-games%" but if there's more potential ideas then that'd be cool to consider.

There's also 2 weapons (One is useless tho) and a flag which I usually use in my runs cuz it reduces your weight, so you might get the weapon?
I agree tho, probably not worth it.

PS3 is not an option as far as I see, hopefully the moderators will add that.
I personally don't see an issue with adding it as a platform and wouldn't call it "emulation" in the sense that the tag is likely meant for.

Thread: I would like to start running Batman Begin !. I have some question

Started by: Lu-ILu-I

As far as I've seen, this game has quite a few glitches, most of them aren't helpful though.
There's skips you can do which were not intended but I'm not sure you can call them glitches.
Stuff like running past enemies who are meant to stop you or avoiding certain sections don't require you to break the mechanics, they just require you to avoid death essentially which is why I'm reluctant to call them glitches.
Just read the rules and check the other runs to get an idea of what to do, that's how I started running this game anyway.
You can skip the cutscenes if you watch them in the player first but I think you need to have completed the game in order to watch them from the main menu...or maybe that's a glitch with my emulator, I couldn't skip cutscenes despite having several completed saves until after I watched the cutscenes from the main menu.

TL;DR, no/limited glitches, other runners have optimized the run so take notes, beating the game before running is optimal.
Good luck!

It's been a while since I've played on my PS2 but what do you mean inaccurate?
Faster load times?
If so, fair enough, although from the little I've seen, cases like that just end in their own category.

Ah, then I can't say for sure, it was working fine after I disabled Shield so maybe it was just you?
PS: Your link to Twitch is broken for me, it says the channel doesn't exist, I had to backspace to get it to load a channel. (MetalEXE)

Do you have Adblocker enabled?
I had this issue when using Brave on my laptop, it worked when I disabled Shield.
It might be an issue with Shield specifically but I think suppression programs like that register videos on this site as something you don't want, don't know why.

I actually checked earlier, obviously it wasn't at the same part but I loaded in 1 second whilst the other runs were 3 seconds.
I should test it at the same part, just in case I was checking a spot that loaded faster / slower than the rest of the game.

Maybe it's cuz I'm emulating it but I'm not really noticing a huge amount of lag...I do hope this isn't one of those games where the game speed is tied to framerate.
I COULD test this on my actual PS2 but that'd require finding it and setting it up. (It's been a LONG time since I touched my PS2 XD)
Definitely lots of looking for the enemies though, I don't have a save on the PC I'm currently using so I had to restart the game and I'm sure I spent 20 minutes looking for the last enemy...twice :'(
So I guess I'm at the mercy of RNG XD

Tbh, if I were categorizing it, I'd just copy the way Ultimate Destruction is laid out, any% then NG+, at least that would make sense to me.
I'll certainly give it a shot though but um, when I do, is it okay if I ask you to verify stuff before I share it on Speedrun.com?
If I'm being honest, speedrunning is somewhat new to me so I'm not all too familiar with the rules 😛

I see, thank you.
Also, by NG+ I am referring to how if you load a completed save, it restarts the game with everything you bought.
If it's acceptable, I can link a 30 second clip showing that, cuz I'm not sure I'm explaining it very well.
