Thread: 100% Mdisks

Started by: BmanRulesYou21BmanRulesYou21

It depends. So far I was only runner with 100%, and I tried to get everything. But after some time I started to questioning myself, if its really worth to save game -> go to the website (I'm / I was using french site that work ) get the code -> get back to the game and then get the Mdisk. In the end I think I setled that its not worth doing this all.

Now it won't be true 100%, so I kinda needed some other opinion on it. We can make it requier, or we can skip it.

Thread: Game Version

Started by: IanSynthIanSynth

Well back when there was no Uplay version, only GoG and steam, both were good, but there was a rumors that GoG version is free from "all bad stuff" which I think isn't 100% true.

Game can run differently on all PC, and it doesn't matter that much from where you get it. Now when there is also Uplay who knows which version is the best.

For me the most important thing is the settings you use. This determin if the game will crash, lag, or bug more or less, at least I can tell that much from my experience.

I mean do you have a hotkey to use to move splits, like you know you press K key and split move.

Also be sure to run as admin.

Did you enabled the hotkey to use in livesplit, and enabled global hotkeys in livesplit ? and also try running livesplit with admin rights.

No you can't find it ingame ruudf. This settings you can find in folder where you instaled the game, run SettingsApplication.exe and there you set your settings.

Also be sure that you run game and settings under windows xp comp and run as admin, this 2 maybe are not so important but its a old game that was never ment to work on newest system, so it safer to use windows xp and run as admin.

Yeah, back then the top was old not best know settings.

Also PoY though that the reason the game was faster was the Hz in settings.
Maybe its both something to do with Hz and one options that cap the fps, who knows, this game is old, broken, and weirds.

First, we set a hotkey to split, so you press lets say P while playing the game, the P doesn't do anything in game BUT it hit the split, everyone have there own settings.

De Castellac skip work in 2 ways. Old - You stayed in one place, wiggled the camera and while doing that, you spammed W to move forward and prayed that you had good angle to skip cutscene.

New - You run to the wood pillar, aim with camera and walk / run and you should get the skip a lot easier then in old way, but still its not 100%, but it gives you a lot better chance.

If you mean the video being played faster then audio in cutscene then I think yes.

The settings that are listed in first post, are the "best" know settings to us that are working good on different PC.

In last ESA or another marathon where Luoth was running this game, he did old, or his settings and game was running faster ( Also I noticed that monitor at marathon was cappable of running at 120 hz instead of 60 hz, but I wasn't able to confirm the connection ) BUT then he did the settings that I listed and game was working fine.

There is still this annoying audio glitch at the end, on the moon where audio just stop playing during Peyj reunion with Jade, but well at least it doesn't affect the runs.

Here is the video I was talking about -

The only problem is they only showed the good run, after getting good settings.

PLUS - we are using program called D3DWindower to run this game ( well some of us )
that let us play this game in windows mode and some other stuff.

I updated the main post with the "best know settings" that work.

With the settings I posted before, game didn't crash while doing 100%, so thats good, only problem is audio.

Audio glitched a lot earlier then normaly ( or with old settings ) and later audio glitch was a lot worse then with other settings.

But in the end I think its good trade, audio is glitched, but at least game didn't crash for me.
Will do another run with this setings and see if this will happen again or not.

We once talked about settings that we are using to play the game, and so I wanted to lis them what settings we are using, and well I wanted to give it a try and test different kind of settings.

So share your settings and the errors or other thigs that are happening to you while playing on this settings.

EDIT:
Run game with compability mode Windows XP (Service Pack 3 - Apparently Windows XP with Service Pack 2 fix the audio APPARENTLY) and as a Admin, and use the "best know" settings setting thats we found.

If this doesn't give you constant 60 fps, try enabling HW Vertex Processing.
It helped me and few others people getting constant fps.

THIS ARE OLD AND OUTDATED SETTINGSD, not sure if will work for.

So thats mine settings http://i.imgur.com/BbNuCde.png

Only thing that is bad, after credits in any% I got the "No Memory" error, and while 100% game crash while using last tripple elevator just before final boss with the same "No Memory" error.

Here are some other settings that I found, and are claimed to work perfectly (WHO KNOWS) or at least work good without any speed ups, or audio / video de synch

Thread: Bingo

Started by: TheVoicelessSpeakerTheVoicelessSpeaker

So at last can look at this more and think about that bingo.

With PA-1 and Meca Imp, its good to left specific ones like the lighthouse / moon PA-1 but for Meca Imp I would suggest only that one from Volcano after you get beluga. I somehow don't think that getting other non specific PA-1.

About photos. can't say much about it. Like getting all humans photo (hybrid also) or all bird, all insects etc. But can't say much more, because I don't remember how many of the species there are, and how many photo it take to complete 1 species.

Complete 1-2-3-4 race, do Looter cave 1-2-3-4

Win 2 pearl from Francis (that shark men playing the game)

Get specific Mdisk - or all of them, or 0 I dunno about that. Some of them are easy to get (the report from Ming-Tzu or Newspapers) so maybe get few specific, we need to think a bit more about that one.

Buy all buyable pearls, thats good one if only there was more to buy, because for now its for me means the same as playing and finishing the game. But idea was nice.

All key card is good, but the beating the hidden ball game 5 times from Mdisk is bad one.
If I remember right, you can't beat that game. After you get to the end, it just start from the start but it just move faster, can't be wrong about that thou.

perform oob, is kinda stupid.

Still in the end, we need to think more about the Bingo, so someday we will get good one.
