Please be sure to switch back to the timing screen at the end of the run. It makes life a lot easier for us.
Thank you in advance

Yes, the All Brushes category definition is "Get all brush powers and their upgrades"

In NG+ it's a lot easier since yen gets carried over to the next playthrough, and at the end of the game you get 2 million yen which is more than enough to get the PS and CB upgrades

There's a bug in editing series themes where there isn't a colour picker, just the Hex code for colour.

Thread: Speedrunning on PC - Best category?

Started by: BexDaBexBexDaBex

PS3 is the best for NG+ without question, for the NG categories PS3 is one of the worst actually. For those categories PC is definitely the fastest version to run on.

Thread: Any% All Games

Started by: Kinnin11Kinnin11

Due to lack of interested I've put All Games as miscellanious. If I don't get any responses to this to keep it i'll delete it and rename Any% (Beat RotK) to just Beat RotK. The latter is mainly because I dislike calling it any% because there's no true any% in this game.

Thread: Vid requirements

Started by: Kinnin11Kinnin11

Now that we have an accurate emulator i'm increasing the vid requirement of the main categories by 5 minutes.
This means that for 100% it's sub 2:15
for MKU it's sub 30
for Beat RotK it's sub 1:05
for All games it's 1:55

Runs that currently don't comply will be grandfathered in for now.

co-op definitely seems like a category that more people are interested in, and there probably will be a category for it if it's a significantly different category.

As for Guess Star we're not completely sure yet how to categorise that so stay tuned for it. we might use the IL leaderboards function for it though

Thread: About Individual Level Speedruns

Started by: infinityJKAinfinityJKA

I'm not sure if there is going to be enough interest from people to actually go for IL speedruns right of the bat. If there are enough people interested and have done a couple, I might reconsider. There's still a lot to be figured out surrounding categories in the game, and what people want to run. Also how we want to make categories here, since it's very easy to make a very ugly leaderboard out of this game.

Thread: i want to submit my MAIN STORY speed run %any

Started by: PokewoodPokewood

Once i finish the game myself, I'll open at least any%(though probably All Puzzle Pieces and 100% too, but i need a bit more info on those first). This is mainly because i don't really want to have the final boss spoiled for myself. I'm sorry if that's a bit selfish, but if i wasn't sick i probably would have finished the game by now.

I have been feeling better today though, so i hope i can open up any% tomorrow. No promises though. Once opnened you can submit your run.

As with any event of a size like BSG annual, a lot of work needs to be done on-site to make sure the stream will run smoothly and everyone will have a good time. As such we're actively looking for people interested in taking a shift for hosting or tech, or any other sort of help at the event. If you are interested in helping out you are of course welcome to.

In order to ensure that everyone, including volunteers, can get the most out of their stay, all shifts are limited to a maximum of 4 hours. New volunteers are requested to be at the venue the day prior to stream so we can properly instruct them on how everything works and on everything they need to know.

We're currently looking for volunteers for:

Hosting:
Hosting involves, among others, announcing runs, reading out donations, plugging incentives and talk about the charity. If you're interested you're also welcome to help with runner interviews between runs. Hosts can also pick what games they'd like to have a shift during, we will still try to schedule you into a block around 4 hours.

Audio:
Audio involves monitoring audio and adjusting audio levels if needed.

Tech:
Tech involves setting up games, keeping track of the timer and all the involving software, making sure everything is properly cropped and just in general making sure the stream keeps running smoothly.

Other:
Aside from all the stream-related there are plenty of other things that will need help. Stuff like cooking, cleaning, first aid, picking people up, driving, and so on. If there are any such things you'd be interested in helping, feel free to let us know as well.

In case you are interested in helping out, you can fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/9gwJhoagRdpNs3yF3

We ask runners to submit their runs individually. At the end of each form, you will find a new link to the form to submit additional games.

Entry fee
Because of the difference in venue you will have to pay your tickets at the venue itself. The people at the venue will handle this themselves. Tickets will be €8,-, slightly more expensive than usual because of this.

Food and drinks
Due to venue terms of use we are required to not allow any drinks into the venue. Both drinks and food are provided by the bar in the venue at very low prices.

Runners from outside of the benelux

yeah. I don't think the current format of srcom allows us to easily make stuff like individual courses(or individual helpers in HtH) work smoothly. It would just make all the boards a mess(even more than it already is) and I like to try and keep it as clean as I can.
