Thread: Making FPS visible on screen on PS4?

Started by: FlizbriFlizbri

FPS is locked on consoles natively so you don't need to show it if you are running on console.

Thread: Request for discord server

Started by: NoobSalmonNoobSalmon

I wrote this in the other thread but can we make a speedrun server for the game? I feel like it would be helpful for new runners as well.

I personally started learning the run before all the glitches were found and i kinda had to re-learn the route since i noticed the changes in the newly approved runs and i'd prefer being up-to-date now 🙂

I can start the server myself i just didn't want to go out of the way to do it since i'm not really an active member of the community yet.

Thread: New timing method

Started by: NoobSalmonNoobSalmon

DotT:R is officially switching to in-game timer (IGT) comparision from real time (RTA).
That means if you are on PC, you can use Livesplit IGT script to determine the in-game timer.
Submitting your RTA times will be optional, however if you submit your RTA PB, make sure to fill in your IGT with your RTA time.
Top 3 runs on the leaderboard must have an accurate IGT time, otherwise the RTA time will be displayed.

Since there is no exact, constistent compromise for console runs, make sure to submit your RTA time only. (Leaderboards might be separated between PC and Console later)

Comparision is now determined from the IGT, your RTA time is optional. I added RTA to IGT on the previous runs to avoid blank spots. If you can't determine your IGT, submit both of your times with your RTA time.

if you are refering to this as a race then sure, it's allowed, and you can submit if you both record your runs. if you are refering to completing a run where you complete only one part and another part is completed by someone else then it's generally not allowed in single player runs.

Retiming old runs would be painful so I'll just fill in the IGT section with the RTA times but if you do another run then you can submit with the new rules. It is currently in-progress to be updated as I wanna make sure to apply the ruleset to all platforms if possible.
Currently still the board is RTA sorted and I'll update to IGT once these things are solved, thanks for the patience.

Pros:
- Event location: Very accessible, the environment is great. I think the hotel and the event space is great, I would not change this place. Food places are also good in the area.
- Hotel: Breakfasts were amazing, hotel staff is nice, bar is a cool place to hang around. The rooms are comfy.
- Event Space: large and comfy, I felt generally nice walking around there. The arcade room was also amazing this year.
- free PopCorn and free ice-cream are great to have even though I was not the biggest fan of both
- in generally: the environment, the people, the production are probably the best experience in Europe if you are interested in speedrunning

Cons:
- the lack of PCs: There were not enough PCs to practice on during the marathon. The majority of the runs were PC games and there were more CRT TVs in the whole event then actually PCs. Why? I had to go to practice 8 in the morning just so I can have a free PC. Why is this a thing? Yes.. we were given instructions so we can ask people to hand the PCs over to us if we want to practice and they don't use it for practice, but everyone pretty much wanted to practice. The lack of PCs in the quiet practice rooms in the first few days were also a big mistake in my opinion. Why was it established after like 3-4 days instead of day 1? Some people actually disconnected the monitors from the PCs so they can connect their console to play games. And yes, I'm aware that you can ask people to just don't do it.. But the problem with that it creates such an uncomfortable situation that makes you hate yourself for asking for a PC so you practice a bit.. Why should you feel that way?
The marathon runs are PC run in majority, this needs to be fixed next time. This was probably my biggest issue and this feels like a problem I want to be sorted out for next ESA.

- The event stream area was crowded and loud. Not only they put Stream 2 in the same room, which I understand why it was a thing.. (more accessibility to stream 2 I guess) But the random yells and claps could be heard from both streams across and sometimes it was actually very difficult to hear the runner from the audience and the game.. I kinda want stream 2 in a separate room, maybe a bigger one than in last year but definitely not in the same room. Also TTS is a good meme for donation reading but it feels a bit detached that this supposed to be a marathon where human interaction is important.. and not a robot voice reading donations in a monotone voice.. Please ask people to be readers next time on Stream 2!

- Street Boyz: Probably the most annoying thing in the whole event. Putting it next to stream 1 was probably the biggest mistake first. The random popoffs and yells actually were audible during the runs and also one time someone yelled so loudly it actually distracted the runner from his run. I don't understand why the staff didn't do anything after this. or didn't care but it was not a good idea to keep the panel in. Also, once the actual run went on stream 1, they removed the panel to outside. Why couldn't it be done in the first place? It was distracting, loud, obnoxious and yes.. i understand it's fun.. but there are people who actually watch the stream and they don't actually care about the popoffs or the game.. and they actually want to enjoy the stream..
My advice for next year: If a similar thing is gonna happen, I think it should just be separated the panel from the streaming event in general and do it either outside in the first place or in a private room. Stream 1 should be stream 1 and should be top priority. Putting random stuff next to it will cause this hinderence again.

- People still leave their garbage everywhere and it's annoying: I don't really know how to fix this honestly. If there are hundreds of people at an event this will bound to happen but please take care of your own trash at least next time. ESA staff is not designated to clean your stuff. As an adult or almost adult human you can do it yourself. It's really not that hard.
