Thread: TSR - Category Extensions

Started by: PatMonster101PatMonster101

i'm sorry but this game does not have a very large community and i really dont think every game needs to have a category extensions page. Just because you can think of categories to put on there doesnt mean it needs to exist as a leaderboard. And to be perfectly honest level centurions are just ridiculous. If you wanna do that go ahead but we really dont need to have leaderboards for that

i have never worked with co-op runs as a moderator before so i'm not sure how youd set it up on leaderboards the best. I think it would have to be separate categories

I implemented the leaderboard split for No bonus boxes / bonus boxes. I think I sorted in all runs correctly, let me know if I missed something

id rather not have people farm mod pods during runs. If you wanna use them, make sure you have them at the beginning of the run

would anyone be opposed to having subcategories for runs with and runs without bonus boxes? This would be a second row of tabs under no skips / skips, and would double the total amount of possible categories, but I think this would be the best solution to this

I originally saw these things more similar to vehicle modifications rather than game-mode changes. My suggestion would be, if it turns out you have to use them to be competitive, we can make a leaderboard split, so that theres one subcategory for bonus boxes and one for runs without. I'm not sure if thats the case right now, given that only one of the current records uses them, but we're keeping an eye on that

Of course I'm always open for further discussion there if you have any other ideas or concerns

Thread: Making the leaderboards

this was a deliberate choice when I originally set up the leaderboards, though I'm open to changing this if most people disagree with me there. Right now the glitchless / glitched distinction is set up as a different subcategory rather than a different category. The reason I did that is because currently there are very few tracks that have skips at all, and I just think it looks really bad if theres tons of main categories that have no entries. Like this it still looks like there are entries for every IL, and not like almost half the boards are empty

im not sure if i understand your problem but if youre working with 2 decimal digits make sure to type them in correctly. For example if the race time says .25 and you use a calculator that expects 3 digits, type it in as .250 cause otherwise it might misread it as .025

for time calculation I personally use this calculator: http://www.​unitarium.​com/time-calculator
it sometimes has weird behavior with how it displays decimals (for example displaying .1 as .099999999999) but you can just round that and this calculator has been proven to be reliable over the years

We also have added a No skips / skips subcategory distinction for both single segment as well as individual level runs. This is to cover the possibilities of players using strats (glitches?) that very clearly skip parts of levels such as those in Sky Road or any possible future discoveries

single segment categories are up! If there are any questions or concerns regarding any of the categories we are happy to discuss them

Team Adventure 100% is not yet added to the leaderboards, because we're not agreed yet on what that category should require. This will be added once we have found a solid definition

Time Trial leaderboards are live. Single segment categories will be added shortly

oh yeah it does track the difficulty youve beaten the events at so that probably needs to be included as well (or maybe you just purposely ignore that for simplicity sake and just say all stars and all keys). Either way I think its gonna be a while until someone actually does a 100% run

the way I see it, the any% and 100% categories should probably only include the Team Adventure mode. So the full category names should probably be Team Adventure any% and Team Adventure 100% rather than just any% and 100%. That's how the categories are definited in All-Stars Racing Transformed as well. So 100% as I see it would only include getting all stars and keys? Unless theres something else the game tracks during the Team Adventure mode that I'm not aware of

Getting all unlocks just seems like a tedious grind that would be very hard to track if you even have completed it

Thread: Making the leaderboards

All GPs is definitely a valid category, I just personally think All Tracks is probably more enjoyable. But in terms of how the GPs exist within the game, it totally warrants them to be a category.

My suggestions for a category list would be:
-All Team Races
-All Solo Races
-All Team GPs
-All Solo GPs
-any%
-100%
and then should it be neccesary, there could be subcategories or a variable for glitchless / glitched.

Regarding timing, I think the best would probably be to have Ingame time as a main timing method set for the game. For the "All X" categories, you can just easily add up the IGTs for the tracks, so that all platforms can fairly compete with each other. For any% and 100% youd just have to leave the Ingame time field empty so it just sorts by real time. Maybe for the sake of fairness you can add new subcategories for just those categories that split up the leaderboards by platform

1. on May 19 Frokenok did a run of All Solo Races and ended with 1:26:49, I have a run of All Team Races in 1:23:28. Hypnoshark did an attempt on any% but didn't finish it afaik. Werey also posted in the Sonic speedrunning Discord about having done a 1:25 in All Solo Races on the 23rd. These are the only runs I know of
2.-3. Autosplitters need to be manually made for each game, and I doubt anyone's made on yet. Traditional autosplitters only work on PC games cause they read the game's memory

regarding what I said earlier about categories, I just realized the Grand Prix in this game don't even include every track and that some are duplicate. Then it would probably be better to have an All Races category rather than All Grand Prix, where you just select each race individually

also All Cups should probably be split between Team Grand Prix and Standard Grand Prix

I havent beaten the game yet but it seems like habing the same categories as for Transformed should work. All Cups that would be played as NG+ amd then Story mode any% and 100%.

Regarding loads, removing loads for consoles is gonna be a problem so it might be useful to make subcategories for each platform
