Thread: Cheats you can use before running

Started by: SuperalSuperal

wow this was posted THREE. Weeks Ago. and I didn't answer hahaha

I like watching the games I like develop more than I like running them myself, that's why I usually enjoy setting up the ground work for everyone else to run and have fun. 😃

I was pretty sure someone, at one point or another, would run it, yes. Usually, in the games I mod, it happens every time. But even if, at one point, I lay the ground work for a game which nobody will ever run, it's fine, because I always do run it a bit myself, so no leaderboard will ever be empty anyway. 😃

Thread: Console and EMU separation, Arossavi moderator

Started by: SuperalSuperal

Hello everyone!

Nice to see some activity on the leaderboards! Arossavi and I have had quite a few discussions about possible differences between the console and emulator versions of this game. After countless comparisons, we came to the conclusion that the emulator allowed for some faster strategies on many levels as well as some improvements in consistency for some tricks. This includes, among others, water bounces, some wall clips, and some cuts. The impacted levels are, as far as we know:

Snow La Coasta (Water bounce, barrier climb)
Manic Mines (Roof clipping at the start of the level)
Lumberjack Lake (Water bounces)
Scarecrow Creek (Water bounces)
Wood Stockade (Water bounces)
Rushmore Rapids (Water bounce)
Fish 'N' Ships (Water bounce)

All those differences do not save a huge amount of time over a full run, as there are many instances where you can make up the loss somewhere else; however, in the case of ILs, which are getting slowly maxed out, the differences are quite huge (over a second sometimes). As such, I have made the decision to separate console and emulator for ILs only at the moment. If the full-run categories do get maxed out at one point, we will consider a separation there as well.

As I have been busier for a few years now, and considering that Arossavi has done a great job with researching the game and providing me with help regarding the leaderboard status, the state of the community, and understanding the game more, let alone his activity, I named them moderator for this game. We will still take any decision together, but they will at least help with verifying runs and checking this forum often.

Thank you for reading.

Thread: Discord and milliseconds

Started by: SuperalSuperal

(edited: )

Hi everyone!

I'm glad so many runs have been submitted lately, and I'm sorry for the time it took for me to verify them, as I have been quite busy lately and often forgot to check this website.

In order to fix that issue, I've created a Discord server which, if you are able to join, can serve as an exchange platform for the community and as a way to notify me when you upload a run, in case I missed it. Indeed, I'm much more active on Discord than on here, so it should speed up the process of getting your runs validated. You can find the Discord on the side-bar, or at this address: https://discord.gg/h4rsNRn

On another note, I recently added milliseconds to the leaderboard to fix potentially ties for first, and to allow for an overall increase of the fairness of the leaderboard. However, older runs still do not use ms, so I am in the process of manually adding them to the runs.

From now on, too, it will be compulsory to add milliseconds to your runs, preferably when you submit them, or at the very least to use livesplit (or a similar timer) on the video itself. For Level Time Trials (not the full game, but Individual Levels), we will obviously take into account the in-game time, as it is the easiest and most precise way to proceed, so no need for an external timer there. I will not reject runs if this rule isn't followed, but the milliseconds value will be set to 999 in case there is no indication of the ms time anywhere. It might sound trivial, but a whole second on races of a minute and a half makes a world of difference.

Thanks everyone for reading this and good luck with your runs!

Superal

Great to know! I'm finding myself pretty busy at the moment, so I cannot really run the game myself or spend much time on it. Can't wait to see your new run once you compete it, though! 🙂

Great find! I remember watching something similar at one point but I had never managed to do it myself, so I assumed it was way too inconsistent to even be used. However, finding a proper set-up might help speed the glitch up and make it more reliable. I will try to have a look for more uses of it when I have free time in about a month.

That would be very neat! Getting the cat snacks is a very big time loss in House, so cutting that altogether would be great.

Also, even if you can't get it to work consistently or in a run, feel free to share what you found! I'd be glad to have a look myself and try to find a way to make it work and/or to make it more consistent. 😃

I'm very well active. 😃

Looking forward to watching your run! This game is a favorite of mine, but I recently haven't had the time/patience/dedication to work on running it myself. I still find some interesting stuff like the No Flashlight glitch I came across a while ago. So yeah, looking forward to seeing your run and your route! 🙂

Good luck on the run!

Thread: Can i be an admin?

Started by: HammMannHammMann

Hello,

I am the current admin for this game. I am not actively running this game but I do check this website everyday for verifying times and answering forum posts, so there is no need for other admins on the basis of activity.

As for your suggestions, I would definitely agree to them if there was already activity in the main categories. For games like this one, I would rather have only a couple basic categories with multiple times on them rather than a series of categories without any times posted. This is why, for now, regardless of the content of your suggestions, I would like to keep this game with the two main categories (Time Attack All Races and All Cups).

However, I would agree to having more categories if there were already runs for them, as it would bring activity to the game. I am interested in the "All Mirrors" run you mentioned. If you were to provide a run for it, and if it were competitive enough to warrant a spot on the leaderboards, then I would gladly accept to add the category as an official one. Don't forget that a category not existing does not prevent anybody from creating it and running it, even if it is not official (yet). 😉

Thread: Tips in routing

Started by: gairingairin

Hi!

As of now I think Pacmanpowerghost's route is the fastest since it's the only existing route I guess haha.

Tips I could give you is to determine the fastest order of photos for each level while making sure you have enough energy for each (and that you make as few detours as possible to fetch the energy). Pacmanpowerghost does a good job at that.

I made a small improvement to his Garden route in my IL PB if you want to check it out (shooting the door early saves a few seconds).

I was supposed to work on this game but college has been busy for me, so hopefully I'll have time to work on it soon! Godd luck! Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

Here is a rather easy way to finish Tombstone Pass in about 20 seconds (for 3 laps). The glitch was found by Normal Universe.

For some reason this came through my notifications when it was posted (it was when the notifications on this site were bugged). I am still active to verify runs where I am a mod, so no worries about getting your runs verified! 🙂

Thread: Podium icons

Started by: SuperalSuperal

Hi! Welcome to the new runners!

I tried to make this game's page more attractive but after failing to find anything else than a background, I'm now here to tell you that if anybody wants to make icons for the podium rankings (thus 1st, 2nd, and 3rd), I would gladly use them. It's not necessary at all but it would definitely look cooler on you guys' profiles. (They would also need to have a resolution of at least 64x64).

That's all for me 😃

This is now done. I was waiting for more opinions on this before updating the leaderboards, that is why it took so long.

Thread: Differenciating X360 and DS

Started by: SuperalSuperal

Hi,

I noticed from the new WR in Economic Victory that the game on X360 is very different from that on DS, giving a pretty huge advantage to X360. Would it be necessary to break the leaderboard into two parts, one for each platform? It would ensure more fairness in the representation of records in my opinion.

Thread: Cheats you can use before running

Started by: SuperalSuperal

Hi!

Before running, you are allowed to use the following cheats to unlock all tracks, cars, and abilities/gadgets. It allows for more fairness between players – some might not have a certain power-up that is very strong during races and would thus be in a disadvantage.

MONKEYSPOILERS All drivers/cars
CHIMPGIVEAWAY All tracks & challenges
GADGETCLEAROUT Every gadget

Since I was added as a moderator, I did it myself. The box was pretty hard to find but doing as they said in the Help forum worked well, so I'll take it haha 😃 Anyway, uploading your runs in a difficulty other than Cheiftan will let your run show in the leaderboard now 🙂
