Thread: Loadless Time Notice

Started by: SamtasticSamtastic

(edited: )

Now that June 1st is here, we are now using in-game loadless time for Oddysee. The new autosplitter will pause the timer between loading and screen transitions and only time actual gameplay. From now on, we will now compare against loadless times so that performance for realtime runs won't matter. It's all about the frames baby!

Could someone create a column for the following 2 games - Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus and name it 'Loadless time'

We have adjusted the rules starting from today to include loadless times in our runs.

Your run will be rejected automaticallly form this site if you don't show your in-game times at the end of your run. If you finish a run and doon't show your in-game times, then I will reject your run. If you submit your run and show your in-game times at the end, I will accept your runs.

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.

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.

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.
