Thread: Pause during speedrun

Started by: kecaokecao

All submitted runs on the full-game leaderboard here have to be RTA (real-time attack) which means that you can't pause the timer. You can take a break mid-run, but you'll have to keep the timer running.

Yep, looks like you did.

You can do so by either enabling V-sync in your graphics card settings or using programs such as RivaTuner or Dxtory.

Thread: FPS cap

Started by: KaopokeKaopoke

All new speedruns need to be capped to 60FPS from now on. Why?

It looks like at 55 fps and above, the physics slowly start breaking. The higher the fps, the more likely the physics will break.

At high fps bullets travel faster in Lair of Poison, and butterflies go crazy fast. The broken physics at high fps can also be used to your advantage, as shown here:

Cutscenes seems to play fastest at low fps. The higher the fps the longer cutscenes take to finish, resulting in awkward pauses between sentences. The loading finishes faster the higher your fps is.

I did notice that some animation did not fully finish at 50 fps, like the ''Where are you going, have you got the money'' animation. On 50 fps he does not tap his palm with his hand, while at 60 he taps it twice. At 120 he taps his palm 4 times.

Also, at 1000+ fps, some animations, such as parrot walking in his cage, play a lot faster than normal.

So the game doesn't seem to have a completely perfect FPS, but 60 fps seems to be a good balance.

Thread: Why do we use the Polish retail version?

Why do we use the Polish retail version?

The Polish retail version is the oldest version of the game and has the most glitches of all, this is why it's been used.

Thread: Regarding IL run rules

Started by: KaopokeKaopoke

(edited: )

Hello, I have noticed in this PB video that the Lap time that is shown at the top when you finish a lap, can sometimes slightly differ from the time shown in the race results. The rules actually already stated that you have to show the race results, but there are some PB video's on the leaderboards that didn't show them, and we accepted them. I'm not sure what we should do with those runs, but I'll leave them on the leaderboards for now. So any new runs that don't show the race results will from now on be rejected.

I'd say that replays are valid as long as you show the time, but I prefer seeing the Live Run so I can see all the HUD elements. One thing to consider though is that replays might have a low tickrate which means that the replay may show things differently than the live gameplay.

You can jump around with a walnut in your hands. To do this, hold jump while either falling or when walking up a steep place.

In this thread you can post all the glitches that don't seem to have any use for speedrunning (yet). Maybe someday someone will find a use for it!

I'd like to request the adding of Pingwinek Kelvin to the Kao the Kangaroo / Kangurek Kao series.
It's not a Kao game, but it's in the same universe and not very well known so we'd like to give it some more exposure.

If your OBS shortcut has Studio in it, it's OBS Studio. I personally recommend switching to OBS Studio, it has more customization options and still gets updates unlike OBS Classic.

Okay, I forgot that the events actually counted towards the percentage, I changed All Cups to any% now. But I believe that the current timing method is better, IMO the run doesn't end until the game confirms that you beat the game by playing the cutscene.

I just created a category for all cups, I think I defined it correctly. If not, just tell me 🙂

Thread: Need some clarification on any%

Started by: KaopokeKaopoke

When exactly does an any% run start and stop? And when have you finished the game?
My suggestion would be that the timer starts when you select a new empty profile you have already created beforehand, to avoid having to make a new profile everytime.
But when does the game end? When the credits screen appears?

Thread: 'No Video'

Started by: KaopokeKaopoke

From your latest FlatOut runs, I can tell that you are probably using OBS.
If so, to remove the stutter, you might need to either lower the resolution or go to Settings>Advanced and then change the x264 CPU Preset to something faster.

Thread: Best PSP for speedrunning?

Started by: KaopokeKaopoke

So I currently own a PSP Go, but not all games are available in the store, like Kao Challengers which I'd like to speedrun. So what would be the best PSP to get for speedrunning? Or is an emulator like PPSSPP just fine?

They should be IMO, that's why I think it's a better idea to have a seperate game page for Kao Challengers. In fact, I made one right now: http://www.speedrun.com/kao-ch

Are you talking about The first game of the series? I have the same problem on my PC, Kao 1 doesn't seem to work on most new pc's. It works on my Dell Optiplex 360 though.
