Hey Adam and thanks for responding quickly!

It's really nice to see that you're on board with changing up the categories somewhat.
I think I'm the only runner that has submitted runs with personal music on the stream and I can totally get behind why that should be a no go by default. I'll stop with that and go to original homm music for my runs.

Regarding manip runs I think mike is better suited helping with how to best verify those runs since I haven't tried it yet.

Thread: Suggestions on categories

Hey guys. Hope all of you are doing well in these months of the plague.

I'd like to propose a few things regarding the categories we have at this moment.

As you may know mikethev discovered a very significant manipulate where you basically have the OG version of homm2, load a specific scenario first then go campaign and that in turn will give you the exact same seed every time depending on which scenario you load up first (you have to reedo this step every new game, right?).

The run mike has up at the moment is very impressive and lets be very honest, you cant beat it with straight up tactics of the past unless you get VERY lucky.

Today we have cheats and no cheats category. I think mr. flogoo has one run submitted in Archibald campaign under cheats category other than that all other runs are no cheats.

I'm not suggesting removing "Cheats Allowed" category per se but I am suggesting that we replace "No Cheats" with two new categories.

1. Any%, usage of the manipulate mechanic and all old rules apply.

2. No Mikemanipulate (I mean the name for this category is up for debate but the man discovered this and should get all the praise of course). This category is straight up rules of the past without the manipulate being allowed.

This would in my opinion give the option of either master the game really in depth discovering what configs of scenarios would clear the game fastest or just play the hands you've been given.

Both categories have their own challenge and would (hopefully) reinvigorate the Homm2 speedrunning community.

What do you guys think? Is this suggestion reasonable or do you possibly have any other ideas? Total trash thought by good ol' Hydra or does he have a point?

What do the mods think?

Hope to hear from someone soon!

Ah yes it worked, sir. Thanks for the tip!

The run has to be reverified (sorry adam!) but it does indeed autoembed.

Glad you enjoyed it mikethev!

Hey guys

Does anyone know if it's possible to add another link to a run that has already been submitted?

In my case I'd like to add a youtube link to my recent run.

Can't seem to find an option for this.

Cheers in advance!

One more thing to think about in the last battle for sure then. So many minutes could'v been shaved of that last map. Road to sub 1h has begun!
