Thread: So you want to be an Adventure Speedrunner

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Speedrunning Adventure games is great fun, but it can be tough to get into it. It requires a lot of practice and time to set up a decent time, 'cause one major mistake like missing an item or having bad rng can mess up the whole run, which can be frustrating.

So how do you get started? Of course you can go the hard way and start right away with the full game, but as mentioned before you have to put time and effort into learning all the mechanics, tricks, routes and skips. We have already provided you very detailed guides you can go through, but especially for starters this can be very overwhelming. In my own experience after, getting my first run verified I really got hooked to speedrunning, 'cause I accomplished something I always thought would be impossible, and now it's one of my favourite hobbies.

So if you are interested in starting speedrunning we recommend beginning with the offical Monkey Island Demo which has its own Leaderboard. In general your run will only take less then 5 minutes so it's perfect to get a feeling for this type of videogame. You learn all the basics of the SCUMM System, and after finishing it you feel way more prepared to run the full game.

To get the Demo to run you need the following Software:
- DosBox (it's free to download you can find it here: (https://www.dosbox.com/)
- The offical Monkey Island Demo (you can download it from the Resources-Section)

I provided a Guide in the Guide-Section on how to setup DosBox and getting the Demo to run and, of course, how to run the Demo itself.

We hope this will start your interest to join the always-fun world of Speedrunning and see you on the Leaderboard.

Thread: Version differences

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

There are 3 different versions of the game I am aware of (at least for the Amiga)

- v 1.04
- v 2.00
- v 2.03

So what are the differences between those?

@LivLiv
Submitted it now.
Was not doing it cause I already did know it would not be verified. But of course you need it. So please check the game again.
Thanks

Hi,

I was about to submit a run for https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​The_Dig but I realized its again a game which is only moderated by El-Nino who has dissappeared for along time now. Can you please grant me Modrights for the game?
Nobody of our Adventure Community knows where he is and more and more games he used to moderate are already changed the Moderator like
for Loom, Indy3, ZakMcKracken etc.
Thanks

Hi Qellogz

Thanks for the answer.
No Problem all good 🙂

Alright I will submit it, I am fine with your suggestion lets do it.

btw:
Why not create a Leaderboard with speedup and one with no speedup? But its toally okay to stay on the same leaderboardas the others until more people get into this game.

Thread: Other Version / Amiga i.e.

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Whoa was not aware of so many Defender-Runners - cool.

I also did two runs for this game (100%) and (Any%) on my Amiga-Emulator.
Both Version (NES % Amiga) seems to differ to much to be placed on the same Leaderboard in my opinion, so I wanted to ask, if you can extend the Leaderboard for additional Versions of this great game.
If not I am of course also fine with being put in the current Leaderboard.
You can check out my Any% here (100% seems not to be a thing here)

Thx & Cheers

Thread: Amiga Version / Disc Version

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Hi all,

so the Amiga version does not have the option to speed the game up, so only normal speed was possible.
I was able to get a decent time, but of course its far from the other records.
I just wanted to ask if we can make another category for this version to cover this up.
If for whatever reason not, I am also fine with beeing put in the current leaderboard 🙂

You can check out my run here:

Cheers

You can choose if you like to have RoboSparkle or Mmeaninglessnamee.
Lets see when and what result we will getting.
Okay?

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

Hello,

we from the Giana Sisters Speedrun Community (2 peoples atm) are missing our Moderators (RoboSparkle & Mmeaninglessnamee) for quite some time now.
There is some stuff to do (verifying runs, clarify rules etc) so it would be great if you could promote MightyMike9001 and me to a Moderator for this game.

Thanks

Thread: Amiga runs

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Alright everybody,

as you might noticed I submitted a (maybe) decent run for the Teampath using my Amiga-Emulator.
It seems that the overall differences to the PC-Version a just minor things, so playing this on the Amiga should also work to compete with the PC.
Well I only did the TeamPath by now, but I am planning to do the other 2 paths as well so we can better compare the versions.
(Maybe it turns out to be like in Monkey Island 2 where the Amiga version is (of course) superior 😉 )

Bye

Hi,

great work retiming our runs thanks mate.

The version WojT__gl is playing seems to be the special edition so it might be legit.

About becoming a moderator:
If you like to you can also suggest me as an additional moderator, I am already one for some other games so I am kinda legit. I am not sure if they will grant moderator right to a person which is kinda new to all of this.
(We did the same at Loom, Firefyte became SuperMod and made me normal Mod)

Cheers and keep on running 😉
