Maybe the exact wording of the rules in the categories is too vague, but personally I don't agree with your request to ban mega tickets for the whole game or some categories. Every category says:
"You can use gold which you received free (for example by following on facebook via the ingame mechanic)"

This means you are allowed to use the gold you gained for free for any purpose you like. Only this (free gained) gold!

I am willing to specify this exact rule (in detail). So everybody knows, you are not allowed to buy premium currency with real money.

But for my understanding there is no need to ban the use of mega tickets overall. You gain 20 gold for free before starting (if you connect to facebook and twitter) and later in game 10 gold for your first bank. The only other way to get enough mega tickets early in the game would be buying gold for real money.

Since real money is allready banned (and I have specified this now) I dont think there would be a problem. The only other way to get mega tickets wold be by exchange your earth dollar (1 decillion earth dollar for 1 mega buck, and you need 10 mega bucks for 1 mega ticket). So I don't think it would be possible to beat oil company in just 2 seconds with the free currency rule.

And even if it would be possible to rush the game in 2 seconds (without spending real money) I would say: Thats what it is about: A speedrun.

But if I have overlooked something (and maybe I have?) feel free too convince me of the opposite. So it would be nice if we keep up the discussion about this topic.

For your request about deleting the categories:
- Moon & Mars%
- Everything%
- Beat Earth
- 100%

I don't see a problem in deleting this. So I would say we keep this topic open and wait around 6 weeks If anyone can bring up a plausible reason for this categories too stay open? Or maybe find some ideas of a specific rule-set for this categories?

If not I don't think there would be a reson to keep theme there. The Game-Hub is about you, and all other runners. You can bring your ideas to came up with new categories or with closing some. I don't see a problem with this.

For recording you can use OBS. It's free and easy to use (lot of easy and quick tutorials for setup on YouTube). You just need to add a scene for the game capture and one scene (window capture) for livesplit. There is no need to have the livesplit window on top of the game you are running. but if you want it visible ingame you need to play in window mode I guess.

@KomradeKontroll there was previous Poster who bumped this thread. I just posted after him. But now he is gone so maybe he deleted his post.

Edit: And here you can see how this "sorcery" works: https://prnt.sc/h9dckx
Edit 2: Why is it possible to delete postings hours ago?

I got tricked.. and now you too 😓

So what about the exact ruleset? Is touching the ground allowed? Or you guys want it without touching the ground? The reddit rules (without touching the ground) are:

The floor is lava - if you land, you get turned into a Lose-io
Wall riding and jumping only - sliding doesn't count as a landing
Abilities can be used
Leave spawn airborne
Finish line is the enemy spawn / final point - Use your ultimate to touch down!
Record your run
Show lobby settings (no cheating snakes)
Include a timer

And btw in my opinion the posted run from DemonStrate should be set in an extra category because this run is made by using the old mousewheel exploit which is fixed (since a month?) and gaining this speed is no more possible.

I use OBS for streaming (very rare actually because my internet suc...) and if I "need" some overlays and/or splits displayed (I don't would know how to make a LiveSplit Windows as overlay in shadow play).
For every other thing (montages etc.) or for IGT runs i use shadowplay because I just need to press one button and I'm done.

Overall I think you get way better quality (especially in fast games) for less resource usage with shadow play compared to OBS. But maybe thats just my OBS Setting which suc... 😃

edit: rip.. didn't noticed how old this posting is.. hope this doesn't matter.. whatever ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My former nick was just "Perk" for a long time. But after I became a big fan of MLP (especially of Pinkie Pie) and after some of my friends made fun of me because I'm the same way hyperactively and sometimes annoying like Pinkie I've changed my nick to "PerkiePie" because it's somehow related to Pinkie Pie! /)

The ending of FF-X made me cry like a baby 😭

It was my first Final Fantasy I've played and I really loved the story. And the end scene where Yuna was running through Tidus and fall on the ground.. that was really sad )=

 
 

Like KomradeKontroll said: Go for the swag! 😃

Just wow! I came here because I followed a link on the sr.com discord where some guy asked why are there so many mods for this game. :c

Just want to thank you awesome guys for your hard 24/7 work on this highly frequented hub. Kappa

Requesting to be promoted to Super for the Game Day of the Tentacle Remastered (https://www.speedrun.com/day_of_the_tentacle_remastered) because the only other mod (and actual Super) is still unavailable for the "daily" tasks because he has no pc/internet access except on mobile. Currently the game-hub gets more active and it would be nice to get some help in handling this.

I don't want the current Super to be removed or something like this. He will be back!

I still have left 4x Keys for Space Pilgrim. One key for each episode (4 keys in toal) as a giveaway for someone who is interessted in running the game.

If you want to run a short rpg/point 'n click adventure settled in a SciFi universe just contact me on Discord (DM - I'm on the speedrun.com server because you maybe need to share at least one server with me) or on Steam.

Especially Episode one is really nice. You will get a nice flow during the run. Games after (and including) episode 2 will be a bit longer when it comes to the gametime. Even more things do to etc.

There is no need to do anything special to get the keys. Just contact me somewhere. I don't post the keys public in the forum to get it taken by bots or someone who just "hoard" games.

Timer starts when "New Game" is selected on the main menu and ends when "To be Concluded ..." starts to fade / fly in.

Screenshot to visualize: http://imgur.com/a/iCTuC

If you have forgotten to start / end the timer or you simply don't use a timer (like LiveSplit and co) just leave the time empty when you submit you run and I retime it for you.

 
 

You can also speed up the travelling animation on the Hope City Transport Map by holding Shift

You can sprint by pressing shift. Also you don't need to click on items/persons. Instead of this you can press "Z" to interact with the object / person.

So remember:

Shift = Sprint
Z = interact

You can also use the Arrow keys to move!

 
 

@tocaloni1 I don't see why I'm writing here. Maybe just because I'm bored.😉

If there is no issue with long verification times I don't see a problem with this "inactive" mods. Most of you guys act like beeing a mod is something special which gives you "power" and makes your life better. If there is an issue with long / or no verificvations someone would post it here and become a mod. So why you bothering about this?

Full-game

Same method as Episode I

Timer starts when "New Game" is selected on the main menu and ends when "To be continued ..." starts to fade in. You can end the timer on the first letter ("T") on the fade in.

The used screenshot is from episode one but will look the same in episode two.

If you have forgotten to start / end the timer or you simply don't use a timer (like LiveSplit and co) just leave the time empty when you submit you run and I retime it for you.

Depends on the games. Usually I prefer single player games with a great story like FF series, Elder Scrolls series or games like Life is Strange etc. but I also play some multiplayer games. But usually only with the same friend. If we both a like a game which support multiplayer or is only multiplayer we buy it and just play the s#!+t out of it 😃

I also preorder games if I'm sure I will play them and like them. Like GTA series, the actual Life is Strange etc. I also try out many EA title on steam. Even if many of them will never be finished or actual just disapear, some little charms are discovered this way. Like The Forest! Awesome game =)

In first place I try to finish the game by myself. But if I got stuck I look for a guide or tips and tricks. =)
