Thread: Questions about Paramonia

Started by: SRGTsilentSRGTsilent

Hi there

It is quicker to skip Scrabania than it is to skip Paramonia.

You need to load a checkpoint on the first save slot on where you see the two lights lit up on completing Paramonia and Scrabania. Then you start a run on either the second or third save slot.

The official Oddworld Speedrunning crew proudly presents...

THE ONE LIFE CHALLENGE!

Here are some of my guidelines I wrote for this challenge.

-Your goal in this challenge is to complete Abe's Exoddus whilst saving as many Mudokons as you can.

-You only get ONE LIFE. If Abe dies, the challenge is over.

-If you want to take part in this challenge, please visit this Discord server (insert Discord Link here)

-Ask a moderator add your name below.

-Once you start your challenge, you can save your progress at the first screen of Feeco Depot if you wish. Then you can resume. You need to type the words @Magic8Ball into your name chat before you start the challenge. You will be given a set of combinations to do to start the challenge. You can also save at entrance screen of Soulstorm Brewery.

-Your score will be saved after the challenge.

Thread: New Games have been added!

Started by: SamtasticSamtastic

Hi Folks

I would like to confirm that two new planned titles have been added to the site. Once the games have been released and people have been playing them, I will update the site with categories such as any%, 100% and maximum casualties.

I will look forward to uplaoding my fan game to my website when it is made. I am working very hard on this game and will keep you updated.

Regarding Soulstorm, there has not been a release date yet for Soulstorm, but I am preparing the game pages.

We should work on the glitch if it’s useful for speedrunning.

Thread: Abe on DosBox

Started by: SamtasticSamtastic

Since the main Windows port crashes a lot on Windows 10, you may want to consider runnnig the same speedy port on DOSbox which may prevent crashing! I will be trying it today, but DOS version works well on DOSbox. Here's how to get it working.

Thread: Emulators

Started by: SamtasticSamtastic

So today I've been doing some runs on Bizhawk and I feel that this emulator is the best. It's 100% accurate and you can record input and save on the memory card for final in-game time.

Here is the official project page for Bizhawk:

I now use a DualShock 4 controller, I used to use the Dualshock 3 but now Motionjoy doesn't work anymore. Xbox 360 controllers work also with both Abe games.

I'm thinking about submitting my run for Abe's Exoddus any% this year. Abe is 20 years old this year and it'll be a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Abe and Oddworld and also there's a storm coming..

Well each cutscene skip I think lasts for about one second or so.

Thread: Cutscenes

Started by: SamtasticSamtastic

For future runs on all Abe games, cutscenes need to be installed whilst playing the game. I had a message from an SDA moderator and he suggests that future runs will need to include cutscenes. So therefore, runs without cutscenes will be rejected on this site too.
