Thread: Xbox one still alive question for a moderator

Started by: LlamaJjamaLlamaJjama

Since there's no way of getting in-game time on console, you would have to submit with real time. This can be got from the video time, so just streaming and then exporting the video and getting the time would work fine 🙂

Thread: Source Unpack vs Steam version for Glitchless?

Started by: [Deleted user]

The main difference for glitchless would just be performance. When you save or load in steam version you get big stutters, this doesn't happen in source unpack,

Are you comparing against in-game time or real time?

What Tendersteel said, you just need to make sure that you're comparing against game time, otherwise it won't automatically change.

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

Started by: GyooGyoo

Hi, I'm looking to get (super?)mod on the portal category extensions board. https://www.speedrun.com/Portal_Category_Extensions

Both of the current mods have been inactive on the site for quite a while. I've made attempts to contact biiwix on both discord and twitter with no response.

I'm already supermod on the main portal board, so being mod here should be no issue.

Thanks 🙂

Thread: My run glitchless is considered to obsolete

Started by: FmGGFmGG

I'll change the run so that the time without loads is the same as the time with loads. This should make it show up on the leaderboards. 🙂

Thread: low fps and freezes with source unpack

Started by: EvandarEvandar

There are a couple of things you can try:
- Set the priority for "hl2.exe" to High in task manager
- Disable autosaves by typing "sv_autosave 0" in console

Hope these help 🙂

Thread: Could demos be fraudulent?

Started by: [Deleted user]

(edited: )

You say that "we rely on them for top 10 verification", this is in a very small part true. For the most part we rely on live videos for top 10 times. The only thing that demos actually help us verify for a top 10 run is whether a jump script is being used.

The rule is that you require both for a top 10 run, since having exclusively a video or demos is flawed in terms of conclusive proof that the run is legit.

This is quite a common problem with old twitch highlights, it would just take a long time to find and fix all of the broken links

In the "resources" tab, if you scroll down to the bottom, you will find the Source Unpack. Download this, then run the portal.bat file and you'll be playing on the old patch.

Are you running the 'normal' batch file for portal, or the one in the rinput folder called "Portal+RInput"?

Category-related changes on 4/30/2017

All miscellaneous categories have been moved to a new page: http://www.speedrun.com/Portal_Category_Extensions
If you had any runs in these categories, they have also been moved and added to the leaderboards.

This leaves the four 'main' categories on this page: Out of Bounds, Inbounds, Legacy and Glitchless.

Thread: Time without loads

Started by: JonahJonah

How does time without loads work, do you just manually remove the time of the loading split?

My assumptions from what I read is that you can do it anytime within the week, so you could organise it for whenever's comfortable.
