Thread: Rule regarding FPS

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

We have discovered that if the game's FPS exceeds certain limits like 70FPS or drops below 10, certain skips become possible that would not normally be so. Under normal circumstances the game's FPS (2006 PC port in particular) will fluctuate between the mid 20's and 61. As such, the external altering of the game's FPS is disallowed.

Thread: Epic Games version

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

Addendum to this rule: NG runs are allowed, but only without a clan. NG runs done on the Epic Games version must show the clan status after the run (Status -> Online info).

Thread: Epic Games version

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

Now that this game can be played on the Epic Games launcher, it has come to my attention that it's not possible to play the game in offline mode. This makes it unusable for NG runs as they require offline to prevent online clan buff inheritance. NG+ runs are fine.

If the video recording stops, then it will be invalid unfortunately.

Thread: Spiral and Kalina Ann Question

Started by: KevinHBKevinHB

Spiral is not used in most runs because it costs time to get it and it's slower than Shotgun. DMD is not very optimized so it's possible Spiral is useful there. I don't know how Kalina Ann's damage works, but it does good damage.

Thread: Any% and AMM Vanilla change

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

(edited: )

Late post, but after playing through Nioh 2, I have decided to rename two categories of Nioh: Any% is now Credits and All Main Missions Vanilla is now Any%. This is due to the Any% of Nioh 2 ending in the last main mission of the base game (unlocking NG+). Now the Any% categories of the two games are consistent. I also made Any% the default category.

Update: Changed All Main Missions LVL1 to Any% LVL1 and All Main Missions with DLC to Any% with DLC.

Thread: Bloody Palace (Co-Op)

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

I've added the Switch exclusive Bloody Palace (Co-Op) in the ILs. The run will be submitted under both Dante and Vergil. Both runners accounts (or names) will be required for them.

I will eventually add Bloody Palace (Free Style) once the new moderation tools come out.

Thread: Load removing autosplitter is live

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

There's been a bug found in the timer, where it will split if you restart M20. This obviously does not invalidate the run, but it will default to RTA. This will eventually be fixed.

Thread: Load removing autosplitter is live

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

The load removing timer (LRT) with autosplitter for LiveSplit started by Auddy has been finished by Mysterion_06_ and hies. It features load removal between rooms, which cuts off about 2.5 mins of any run, the option of splitting by each room and automatic reset in main menu (NG) or difficulty selection (NG+). As of now, the loadless time will be used to rank PC runs.

All PC runs must show the LRT at all times, otherwise they will be given the same LRT as the RTA. Old runs have a shared LRT/RTA due to srcom automatically ranking LRT times above RTA even if they are slower. Console runs will only have RTA. Individual levels including Bloody Palace go by in-game time alone.

The timer only pauses between rooms and in the in-game start menu. The reason why loads between cutscenes are not cut is that the 2006 version would save more time overall compared to the HD Collection, and if only HDC would have it, it would be reversed. As the timer pauses in the start menu, runners are allowed to take a breather if they so wish, though it is not encouraged as it makes reviewing the run more cumbersome.

Furthermore on Heaven or Hell, M20 does not split because Vergil's HP bar doesn't get loaded properly since the mission ends so quickly. While annoying, it is easy to time the end from the video.

Thread: Individual Levels for main game

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

(edited: )

I've added all 20 missions and all 6 difficulties for both characters in the Individual Levels section. Rules: Everything goes except super costumes and items. This means you can have maxed out HP/DT/Styles/Devil Arms/Guns. The timing method is IGT given at the end of each mission. Submissions require video and must show the difficulty select menu (before or after attempt) and result screen IGT.

Addendum: difficulty select menu can be shown either before or after the attempt. This means you can restart the mission faster by choosing restart mission instead of quit.

Thread: Switch as a category

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

I've added Switch as a main category. Runs done on Freestyle mode will go in it, while runs done on Original mode go in the other categories. In the run submission form, I've also added a variable above Platform so that the PC/console separation isn't visible in Switch and DA.

Thread: Petition for Community Vote on board revamping

Started by: DECosmicDECosmic

I have discussed this with PvtCb and we have created two polls for the runners of this game (people with submissions in it) to vote on. I will DM all runners of DMC3 who are in the Discord server using the DMC3 runner tag. I will keep the polls going until all eligible people have voted or two weeks have passed.

Poll #1 - Leaderboard categorization
Option #1: Combine PC and console subcategories to two (PC, console)
Option #2: Keep things as they are

Poll #2 - Any% & DA
Option #1: Move both to Miscellaneous
Option #2: Keep things as they are

Thread: The Abyss as ILs

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

I've put the Abyss in the individual level leaderboard in 100 level segments.
The rules are: Beat the Abyss levels X to Y. Timing is RTA. Timing starts from pressing continue on the Abyss and ends on the last hit of the last boss in the segment.

Thread: Category combo and Dante's Awakening

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

I have combined PS3/XBOX 360 and PS4/XBOX ONE as they are similar enough. This makes the leaderboard less cluttered. I have also changed PS2 to PS2SE (Special Edition) and made PS2DA (Dante's Awakening) which is the vanilla version only available on PS2. You can submit those runs there and now there is no need for another leaderboard just for Dante's Awakening.

Thread: Bloody Palace is now IL

Started by: SimoteusSimoteus

I have put Bloody Palace in the Level Leaderboard and changed the timing method from RTA to IGT has it appears it is pretty consistent among different platforms. This way it is free of the other sub-categories (difficulty/platform). All BP runs must have the IGT at the end of the video.
