Thread: Lag Frames

Started by: nu1xnu1x

Consider reading this post: https://www.speedrun.com/smb/thread/g4qh9. It has some potential fixes for the fps issue (lowering the detail level, using rivatuner, and using the ogversion of the game). Also try having as few background processes as possible. Btw does the problem persist if you are not streaming/recording?

Do you have the Super Meat Boy race mode dlc? AFAIK that is incompatible with the ogversion.

Some monitors also have an option to change the framerate.

Thread: Problems With Streaming

Meatboy can cause these problems and I'm afraid there is no simple fix to that issue. It looks like you have tried many things so I don't have many suggestions. Things you could still try is using GPU encoding in OBS and rivatuner: https://www.speedrun.com/smb/thread/tw32f

Ah yes it was one level too many, I guess it is no good then. Skipping 3-4 + 3-5warp is the next best thing. Not sure about ogmo, getting him early loses about 8seconds, you'd need to time how much it saves.

The point of doing dark forest after forest is to get the required bandages for josef+naija so I suppose there isn't much point in doing that on console. Skipping 3-1 - 3-5warp for later should be faster than what you are doing currently since it reduces the amount of map exits and enters.

Also most likely using pink knight and spelunky saves time somewhere so there might be route improvements related to those.

Might be worth looking at this run: It looks like it only uses characters available for consoles.

I am not aware of many console runs for 106%, this is the best I know: . I'd say a console 106% could go below 1:20 (losing about 3 minutes for slow loads etc and the rest for lack of naija). I'd suggest not thinking about the WR too much as it can be very discouraging initially.

Splitting the leaderboards won't happen as it would unnecessarily divide the player base and besides there aren't very many console runners to begin with.

Not sure there is enough interest for warp zone ils to warrant adding those to the leaderboards.

Most likely the time save/loss will be negligible compared to the current version (with the exception of timer glitch). It is unlikely that larry would change and I very much hope it stays that way.

Of course there are other characters that can get a faster time. Also if you are willing to forgo the il rules you can use a storage jump.

Started by: AlcoweAlcowe

They might get verified but there is no guarantee. Also you don't really want to be resetting that much on forest. It is easy to get stuck doing that even though mistakes in forest are usually pretty insignificant when considering the whole run. It is better to get more runs out of forest even if you are a bit behind.

5C is already a problem, the new level is harder and probably slower too. There already is an il entry for that level.

I meant the distribution of players on the leaderboards of course, the number of owned copies is irrelevant.

There is a reason why they all cater to pc players, just look at the distribution of players on pc vs on consoles.

Depends how many run the category. Not every category needs to have an entry on this site. The leaderboard is already quite cluttered as it is.

The level of verification required across the years have changed. This is common in many speedgames. Worth noting that the leaderboards don't have all the fastest times including in 1-8.

What makes you think they do not adhere to the rules states?

There is always the option of getting another monitor. It is not ideal but it is an option.
