Thread: Amiga Version

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Hi Guys/Girls,

like most of the time I did a run for fun on the Amiga for this game.
So I just wanted to ask if it is possible to add Amiga as a platform so I can submit my run here.
Would be really great.
(I am using WinUAE for emulation).

The Amiga version got some serious slow down issues (same for KQ 1 and most other Sierra games I did run), so even on max speed as soon as there is much animation stuff going on on the screen the game got really slow (Acidrain or in the Spacecantina i.e.).
I am still fine to share the same leaderboard wiht you of course.
So I did beat it in 31m 52s you can check out my run here.

Btw if some of you is active in the speedy adventure discord you can catch up with me there most of the time.

Thanks and Cheers

Thread: C64 Version and IL Runs

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Hi

1) I totally agree on your point about using original hardware. Using Trainers/Cheatcodes is up to the different Leaderboards and comunities here on src, Snoopy for the C64 for example allow Trainers to beat the highest difficulty. This is really something every speedrunning comunity has to decide by themself, but of course accept if no trainers in any kind should be used for Rick Dangerous.

2) This really depends most of the time the game leaderborads will be split if the versions are to different what is comon but sometimes they dont do and point out that you better should request this as its own game. There is no exact rule how to proceed with this. If you would split up the board here into the different versions that would be really great.
C64 has way less screens to solve and is of course shorter then the Amiga version.

3) I just hate the 2nd level in Egypt 😃
Well pretty sure that most games that consist of Levels also have an IL Leaderboard it not that unusual, but of course for RD it would be very grindy and not worth it thats right.

Okay lets see how long it will take me to submit a fullgame run.
Still impressive that you managed to beat it.

Cheers MilkToast

Hi,

thanks for the reply. Yes this was also coming to my mind. For the C64 Version there is a Trainer available to select each stage, but dont know if thisis also possible for the Amiga version. I just know that there is a cheat which lets you continue the last level:
Type "pooky" at the high score screen = Continue from last level.
Maybe it would make sense to request the C64 version as its own game on src due to is difference in total screen you have to complete.

Hi happycamper,

yeah I looks like we should change the rue for when the timer starts.
If I recall correctly I did not change anything in my DosBox (OS W10).

I will adjust the rules and retime the already submitted runs soon.

For the new rule starting the timer I think we should go with:
- As soon as player recruits the starting hero (press ok)

Thanks for taking the time and checking it.

Forum: The Legend of Kyrandia - Book One

Thread: Floppy Version (Amiga)

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Hi all,

I did finish a run on the Amiga for Book One.
Due to that is the floppy version of the game, it is different to the CD-ROM version.

- Most annoying is that you cant (or I dont know how) skip the text in the cutscenes, this adds a lot of minutes to the run.
- The walking speed seems to be much faster
- There are loading times between the screen transitions
- The Cave Section is different, iirc there is a fireberry bush missing so you can only reach the river of lava as a wisp
You can check out the map here:
https:/​/​gamefaqs.​gamespot.​com/​pc/​562667-the-legend-of-kyrandia-book-one/​faqs/​55827

So I just wanted to ask how we go on with the floppy version?
- Same Leaderboard ?
- New Category on the Leaderboard ?
- New Game added to the Kyrandia-Series ?

You can check out my run here:

So what do you think?

Cheers and Thanks

No we have plenty of room to improve the rules 🙂
I also did not differ between the different factions and their starting position on the map like in Warlords 1 what also makes a difference how fast you can win. There is much stuff yet to be discussed.

Game difficulty yes it also an additional option in the future but this aligns with the factions mentioned above because unless we are just quite a few runners I did not want to blow up the leaderboard to much in the beginning.
But who knows how things will progess.

What we also maybe consider is to disallow game reload to manipulate the RNG (not sure if this works in W2 but we banned it for W1 so you cant grind a ruin until you find dragons and stuff).

Hi Hapycamper,

thanks for the suggestions. Yes the rules can of course be changed until it is fair enough. I was not sure about them because there was only me at the beginning running this game.

1) Yes I can change this rule to "Options select Beginners". I am overall not sure about the options maybe we can figure something out what suits running the game best.

2) Not sure about this: The loading times should be the same on every modern computer I assume so I can not imagine that there will be some heavy difference between the runs. Yes I was thinking about this too, but if you dont have time to study the pressure is on you right from the start so you have to make your decisions as fast as possible. I would suggest to stick to the current rule for that.

I will update the rules for Beginners.

Really looking forward for some runs from you, I was just setting up some benchmarks for this game I have no clue if they are really fast or not. (for example JoMama blasted my Isle of Sorcery Run)

Cheers

Hi Jesse,

thanks for the answer. First I was trying to contact you via Discord, but I was not able for whatever reason to find you there and before spaming one of your YT vids I thought Twitch would be better. Anyway it works somehow to get your attention 🙂

If you like you can of course add me as Super Mod, I am also the mod of different other games/series on src so nothing new to me. Also there is the User Eino here on src he is an expert on Golden Axe maybe as additional option for you.

Cheers MilkToast

Hi,

thanks garland 🙂
Yeah the music is really great.

So would you recommend to request this version as Golden Axe (Arcade) to not get confused with this leaderboard?
It would still belong to this series right?

Thread: C64 Version and IL Runs

Started by: MilkToastMilkToast

Hi,

I did for fun a run of the first level on the C64 (which is way shorter then on the Amiga) and I dont want to grind the whole game (I hate the egypt level) at the moment, so I just wanna to know if you can please add IL runs as well and maybe seperate them by Systems.
Would be great if that is possible.
You can check out my run here:

Thanks and great run on the Amiga, I was never able to beat this without a trainer back then.

Hi all,

I completed a run for Golden Axe on the Amiga.
So after Sega CD got added to the Leaderboard I was wondering if this is also possible for the Amiga verison as well?
In general if the version differs to much I had to request the game again at src, not sure if this is also the case here.
You can check out my run here:

If this is for some reason no option, I am fine with that of course.
Cheers and Thanks

Forum: The Secret Of Monkey Island

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.

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

So what are the differences between those?

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
