Super underrated game with fun and rewarding hook-based physics. Easy to learn, but still with a high skill ceiling.

Sayonara Umihara Kawase.

I've been grinding on and off since 2017 now. Still trying to achieve my goal of being the best runner ever, which is getting close now but it's also quite far away.

All of your suggestions are just meme categories that don't have a place on a leaderboard honestly. I still hope to see you submit runs to the current categories though 🙂

I also don't need help with moderation right now. But if I do need help, I'd ask a more experienced veteran runner for the role. Thanks for showing interest though!

Hey! I suggest joining the Discord channel for easier discussions around possible new categories: https://discord.com/invite/DjspPTX

Non-Pacifist / Every Enemy
A 100% category already exists which requires killing every enemy, which is exactly what you're describing.

No Dash / No Slide
This sounds boring as the game already has a lack of deep movement system, so it doesn't seem like it'd be very interesting to speedrun.

Pacifist / No Destroyed Enemies
First of all I think "Any%" is already fully Pacifist by using the "Dash Jump" glitch, so there's that.

Also many levels use the "self-destruction" mechanic after touching an enemy to get boosted far distances, many other levels are pacifist as well, so there'd be an overlap where runs would be exactly the same. I don't think it would be a very unique category (compared to the current ones) where the gameplay is very different, and it comes across as a more challenge run that a speedrun one.

Just my thoughts though, feel free to drop by the Discord if you want to discuss it further or if you have any other ideas. Thanks for your suggestions though 🙂

Hooking physics-based platformer with tons of levels and multiple endings to choose from. Very simple to learn, but hard to master. Also incredibly satisfying once you learn to get good at the movement!

That's crazy!! I assume you've had no luck contacting the runner about how he did it?

That makes no sense seeing that 14.84 is shown as saved, meaning it’s the IGT. There’s no ”timing” done by the runner. I doubt you could actually manipulate the IGT like that anyway, but who knows? Either it’s using secret techniques only he knows, or it’s cheated (however that would be done).

Thread: Should I upload every PB?

Started by: wawawiwa1wawawiwa1

I don't think you need to submit literally EVERY PB that you get (unless you really like to see your exact progression), but rather the best one you get after you're done with your session for the day. At least that's what I tend to do.

Syndicate (2012) is highly underrated. There's tons of skips to perform and a couple new ones found recently actually! Perhaps you can be the one to find more? Give it a look if it's the type of game you're interested in!

Thread: What games do you recommend to speed run on PC?

Sayonara Umihara Kawase: https://www.speedrun.com/sayoumi
Inertia: https://www.speedrun.com/inertia

These are the two I currently speedrun. Lots of IL's but also full-game categories to suit your fancy if you're more into that.

I’ve put a ”N/A 0.001s” run on all that isn’t possible. N/A = Not Available. This is because just as you said, no difficulties, so submitting om Casual difficulty is the current option for submissions because you can’t remove categories for specific levels due to how Speedrun.com works.

Thread: What is the longest speedrun you have ever completed?

Started by: TristanReidelTristanReidel

Shining Soul - Any% Warrior in 3:20:05, which for me is insanely long. I tend to stick to shorter games, or simply just IL's so this run was super tiring for me! I'm still glad to have done a long run like this, to sort of test my own limits.

Thread: Verified an IL as 7.83, shows as 7.00

I found a solution the the bug:
- Mark all of the zeros and copy-paste in something. This will empty the field and allow you to edit the run and fix the visual bug.

But it's still a weird bug that I hope gets fixed as it seems quite obscure that people might not know how to fix.

Thread: Verified an IL as 7.83, shows as 7.00

Started by: NordanixNordanix

I understand how the bug works now:

Normally the time field is completely empty, but if you click on it the three zeros appear, and if you were to edit the run (or just verify it) the run will appear as X.000 but still being tracked as intended. I tried this on one of my own IL's and it can be replicated every time it seems. Hopefully this can be fixed as it requires you to delete the run and re-submit it to fix the visual bug.

I just verified an IL as a 7.83, but it shows it as a 7.00 on the leaderboards. It does however rank accordingly as if it was a 7.83, so it seems like just a visual bug. And when I press "Edit run" it will show that the time indeed is a 7.83.

Anyone know how to fix this or ever experienced anything like this?
