Please join the Mobile Speedrunning Discord, we have all the resources you need and would love to know what games you want to run!

My personal favorite is Game Screen Recorder. Super lightweight and fast recording with external audio.

List of rejected game requests
It would be nice to have all the details of a game request that was rejected. Much like a user can see a list of rejected runs.
The most obvious reason would be if the game was rejected for a minor detail and needs to be resubmitted (as a series, for instance). Also would be nice to include the rejection reason underneath.

Hey PugGaming! As GionniBlood says, you can turn on airplane mode before playing to disable ads. Also, on Android you can get an app called NetGuard VPN that disables internet transfer for apps you specifiy during VPN connection.

Wonderful job on the new update. Looks crisp and clean! Keep it up!

A few bonus things:
- splits.io gold splits are not highlighted gold any more.
- Wondering why this link was removed from "More": https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​changelog
- So, so excited to see what y'all do with graphs 🙂

Forum: Frozen Free Fall: Icy Shot

Thread: Game Update and Possible Timing Issue

Started by: OxkniferOxknifer

Hey y'all!
This game is no longer available on the app store on iOS or Google Play. Meaning, everyone who is running this game has had it downloaded and hasn't deleted it. Save this game if you value it! I'm not sure if any emulators are available at this point.

Timing issue:
Timing is currently based on decrement of your first snowball to snowball count hitting zero. This is for the sake of standardizing timing all the different sorts of modes. The issue with this is that a player who ends the game with more than zero snowballs left will have +4 seconds added due to Free Fall, whereas a player ending their run with their last snowball will stop timing before the ball bounces around and Free Fall begins. If the game gets more popular (which it probably won't, as it is currently undownloadable), we may have to figure out a different method for timing. But for now, we'll keep it as is! Remember to record from the beginning of the level to the results screen just to be safe, as timing rules could change.

Thread: Rollback Reuqest

Started by: TagerplayerTagerplayer

@Tagerplayer this is due to a known site error that causes runs to go invisible if they don't match up with cats/sub-cats. It sounds like all you need to do is add those sub-categories back in (exactly as they were named before). The runs will match up and become visible again.

For future -- If you want to make changes to a category/subcategory in this manner, you'll need to have links for each current run open. For instance, all Story Decks runs should be open as tabs. Once you update the leaderboard, you can reverify each run by editing it and selecting "verify. " The runs will appear under the new/revised category. Let me know if you got questions 🙂

On Freerice FaceBook page:
May 9 at 8:03 AM ·
The old Freerice site is going to shut down later this summer but we've now built a new home for the Freerice family at http://beta.​freerice.​com/ and our Android app in the Google Play store (with an iOS one coming soon)

If you haven't created an account on the beta, make sure to do that now!

All our loyal, high-achieving users on the old site, rest assured, your old scores have made a huge difference and for that, we would like to reward you with legacy status on the new site🏆️

Please click here to find out how, and fill out the form so we can reach you.

Thank you all for helping us achieve #zerohunger

So friends, it looks like the old site is shutting down, so the speedrun.com leaderboard might need to be archived. Once it officially shuts down, I think I'll request we create a new leaderboard for Free Rice 3.0.
I've kept a well-documented spreadsheet of all runs with grain totals, and I'll definitely keep that up as we move into the new website and app. As of today, we've fed 19 people as a group and I'm grateful for your help!

By the way, the new app is funky fresh and looking good. I recommend you download it. If you need any help with finding resources for recording on mobile, hit me up in the mobile speedrunning discord!
https://discord.​gg/D5gZYrs

Or hit me up in the Free Rice Discord, link in the sidebar!
Let's keep up the runs for rice!

Hey BattleMaster! Any audio is better than none. External audio is the main way mobile speedrunners record audio proof because internal isnt really available. Audio is required because it can help prevent splicing and other methods of cheating.

I like that you have a lot of suggestions, though it would be much easier to chat if you joined the mobile speedrunning discord 🙂
