Thread: Consider merging Remasters platforms together

@Morpha26Morpha26
I don't recall ever rejecting RTA, much less that insistent about it.

As I've said 4 months ago, I don't mind merging. I've mostly left it, as is, for there to be a consensus among the runners.
The remaster was still relatively new, at the time, but if people believe merging console and PC, and switching to RTA, is the best course of action, then I will make it so.

Thread: Emulators

Started by: OblimixOblimix

I recently became aware that a couple of the runs (that I had approved oops) were actually done on emulator.
This is generally not allowed, as emulators still, to this day, don't completely emulate the PS2 perfectly. This gives an unfair advantage with loading times, and game speed in general.
I have corrected this and rejected the submissions.

Feel free to voice your complaints and/or if you notice anything else suspicious.

Sorry for the late response.

I mostly left them as is because there was a discussion on switching to RTA as the primary timing method. People were also unsure, at the time, if one system had an advantage or not, as the game was brand new.

I don't mind combining the platforms, if we can can agree to sticking with IGT in the future.

I added the 100% (S-rank) category as requested.
I wrote some rules for it, but tell me if I'm missing something or got something wrong.

Adjusted categories accordingly:

NG will remain as a normal mode only run, in order to prevent cutscene skipping.
NG+ and NG+ Ultimate will have Easy, Normal, Hard and Critical subcategories.

Thread: Added categories for HD releases

Started by: OblimixOblimix

I've been rethinking the categories, and I wonder if maybe it would be best to combine the HD categories into one instead. Spreading it out so thin diminishes competition, so I believe it'll look quite barren before long.
I could keep it as it is, but wondering what everyone else thought.

@OneCoolMan
Might choose that wallpaper, but I'll need it in 1920x1080 for it to not look awkward on the site. I will keep a look out for one.

Yeah, wallpaper is in need of remaster as well. I'll keep a look out for anything new, but do hit me up if you find anything good.

Thread: Different Versions of the game

Started by: smashf13nd1989smashf13nd1989

Emulators are generally frowned upon in speedruns. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a PS2 emulator that perfectly emulated a PS2 (one that included frame drops and load times), so I doubt it'd get accepted.

Thread: Timing

Started by: ngBurnsngBurns

I like reviving the dead, but yeah timings must have a standard.
Starting the timer the moment you click on "new game" is the best thing imo.
Ending timer would be the moment the screen goes black/white after killing Nobunaga (goes white in ps2 version and black on PC).
In-game timer is valued higher than RTA. The leaderboard will first sort by in-game timer and then real-time (in case of a tie).

I don't know much about the skipping of cutscenes or the additional weapons, so that can still be open for discussion if it belongs to NG+ or not.

I took the liberty of adjusting the categories as you suggested. They should make more sense now.

That's fine. Better to have the categories prepared beforehand and ready for potential runners.
I'll see what I can make of it.

Your run is still there, but name has disappeared. I'll write it back once they fix it.

Having same issue now as well. I can add new runs without much issue, but I can't edit or delete existing ones.

Oh, I guess it's different from DoD then?
What are the benefits from NG to NG+ without ultimate mode then?

Also site is being weird with submitted runs atm. Can't edit some while others just disappear for some reason.

Are you only able to skip the cutscenes after having watched them once before in another playthrough?
If so, then I can understand the complications with that.
