Thread: "Timer starts upon taking control"--why?

Started by: kobepilgrimkobepilgrim

^ although I have to say having a definite point of start (e.g. the button press when pressing new game) that you can synch up to seems to be a better option than having to just know when you gain control.
imo it's a lot more secure for inexperienced people.

Thread: Grow Home

Started by: samisdrunksamisdrunk

Grow Home: available on Steam and PS4 (I think on ubisoft's steam clone as well)
small 3d platformer where the goal is to grow a giant plant by controlling it's thicc tentacles to thrust themselves into juicy rocks.
in the end it'll bloom & your job is to get the resulting fruit to your spaceship which coincidentally dropped you at the start of the game.

secondary objectives are, but not exclusively: gathering all crystals, which are spread over the game's world.

it's a small game, any% is currently somewhat 15minutes.

Thread: What is a good capture card for a Wii?

Started by: CallMehAlecCallMehAlec

this or any variation of it will do.

although you might want to get a hdmi-output for your wii and then get a capture card w/ hdmi support.

Thread: Window capture successfully captures title screen, but freezes there

Started by: EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly

So you tried both Game & Window Capture, that only leaves Monitor Capture,
with that just crop down the area to the game's window.

if that doesn't work, then obs just can't grab that game.

@OddsomeOddy I did for like 10 years, it's not THAT bad.

@OP might want to try if this problem persists w/ another pc if possible, if it works on other pcs, try reinstalling windows.

I wish Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae & Monster Hunter Generations would get more traffic on site,
for MKH it's more like no one wants to run it, while for mhgen it's no one wants to submit here :C

Thread: Adding subcategories/variables independient for each subcategory

Started by: [Deleted user]

(edited: )

if you want a subcategory to only appear in one category, you want to select it in the "category" dropdown menu,
this will prevent it from appearing in all other categories.

if you don't want it to appear as subcategory, just uncheck the "use as subcategory" checkbox.

Thread: New Layout!

Started by: PacPac

(edited: )



The text in a spoiler will only be readable if it is selected

a real issue: the space inbetween subcategories is way to large, causing a new row to appear even tho there would be enough space for the rest of the subs to fit in.

Why not make this game IL only?
There are many games that have this and MP:FF would def. have a use for ILs.

Given, the game is crappy af imo, but it seems like something worth picking up for speedrunning, the sidehop is quite fast.

anyway, when would you guys start/end a split for an IL?
-I'd just start when pressing ready (when the last guy presses ready for multiplayer)
-alternative: possibly when gaining control at the start of the level

-end when attaching to the grabber @ end of level (when the last guy attached for multiplayer).
-alternative: end when Mission Complete appears on screen

Full alternative: just use IGT as shown at the end of the level.

example run for M01: Outpost using Start @ ready & end at grabber (I didn't really try)
Skip to 2:20
