https://www.speedrun.com/redfaction - I'm obviously biased, but Red Faction (1) is a great game, with a great community of speedrunners who are all constantly finding new skips, tricks, and strategies.

In general, if you have a video, upload it to YouTube and submit it.

Whether specific aspects of the video are acceptable for a run would depend on the game. If I were you, and if the game was on the site already, I would ask that question to its moderators.

Yeah, exactly - record a segment, then quicksave, quickload as many times as necessary to get a good next segment, quicksave, repeat.

Can you have multiple quicksaves at one time?

Also is there a listing anywhere of currently known strats/skips in the game? Specifically any quicksave/quickload tricks?

I'm considering doing a segmented run of the game.

Does this game have any type of quicksave functionality that could be used for segmented runs?

Thread: How to get Red Doom

Started by: GooberGoober

Red Doom is modification for the PC game Red Faction. You'll need to get a copy of Red Faction, and then install the Red Doom modification.

Buy Red Faction: http://store.steampowered.com/app/20530/Red_Faction/

Download Red Doom: https://www.factionfiles.com/ff.php?action=file&id=517097

To install Red Doom, simply extract the "reddoom" folder to your "<Red Faction>\mods\" directory. (Normally this will be "C:\Steam\steamapps\common\red faction\mods\reddoom" for Steam users, and "C:\games\RedFaction\mods\reddoom" for non-Steam users)

To launch Red Doom using Pure Faction (highly recommended third-party patch for Red Faction, get it at http://purefaction.org ), launch the Pure Faction Launcher, select "reddoom" from the "Mod" dropdown, then click "Launch."

To launch Red Doom using stock Red Faction (without Pure Faction), run rf.exe with the following command-line argument:
rf.exe -mod reddoom

If you run into any difficulties, post here and I'll help you out.

Happy running!

Also - I've just added specific rules for the IL runs, in case you're interested in running those as well! 🙂

On the advice of the crew over at the Speedrun.com Discord, I included load times in the run because there's no precise way to track game time (as compared to real time) in Astray. That being said, I manually measured in my video editing software the length of the run minus the time lost to load screens and provided that time as "Time without loads" on the leaderboard, in addition to the "Time with loads" as shown below - I encourage you to do the same. 🙂

Time without loads: 17m 10s 030ms
Time with loads: 17m 57s 910ms

Good luck with the run! 🙂 I'm really happy to see someone else interested in running this game, and I hope you're able to find some skips I missed.

PS. For segmented runs (which I've been planning on doing one of), just cut out the load times entirely. 😉
