Thread: Can a run be accepted without Splits I/O splits?

Started by: RhinozzRhinozz

Generally you aren't obligated to provide any kind of times/splits. That is purely for your own convenience as a runner.

The true Mortal Kombat tournament is held every generation between the South American community and the rest of the world, aka Outworld, in the secret island of speedrun.com forums. They must win 10 consecutive arguments in the forum to be taken seriously.

Thread: What if game = speedrun?

I agree, not enough people in the SR community know about Defrag. I remember being fascinated by it back in the day when I was learning proper movement for Quake Live and finding cool movies like this: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5483f2

I don't see anything wrong with that Defrag thread.

Thread: recording on xbox360

Started by: TRLBottasTRLBottas

Xbox360 not an XboxOne, so it can do none of that. Options are pretty much capture card or pointing a camera at the screen, which can be a passable temporary solution.

Thread: Switching discs with Bizhawk

Started by: ChuChuTexanManofLuckChuChuTexanManofLuck

For me it just kinda worked, though it took a few different ways of loading it. I think it mattes which cue file is first in the xml. I did it for original RE2 and since I had done Clare A I had to start my xml with that disc being the default one and then switch to Leon B.

Use the Tools>Multi-disk Bundler to create an xml playlist thing with all of the game's CDs(their cue files), then launch that as a rom. Then you should be able to use the PSX disc controls and open the tray then swap disks. It is kinda wonky.

Thread: Can a mod ever overrule the community?

Started by: emeraldalyemeraldaly

I don't see moderators as necessarily a part of the same hierarchy we are talking about. Mods manage the leaderboard and resources connected to that, just like they would a forum or a discord server. The community structure to me is neither a democracy nor a tyranny, but a hierarchy based on experience and knowledge. Often the top 'class' overlaps with the moderators or some of them, but the title of moderator itself doesn't provide anything exclusive on its own other than extra responsibilities and the respect they potentially gain from doing that.

That is exactly the aforementioned line though, so it counts. And honestly people who do that probably still won't submit until they do a bit more research and another run.

Extremely offensive? I get that the context is that people used it in a derogatory way, but it is still literally the first three letters of the word Japanese. Like come on...

There is one factor people aren't mentioning. It is very subjective, but for most games it is possible to make that judgement. If the person made an effort to actually speedrun then it is acceptable even if it is slow, but if they didn't then I have no guilt in rejecting it.

Might as well remove the ranking numbers cause it isn't verified that there aren't runs that would fit in-between two spots somewhere on the internet or a random hard drive or VHS tape. Come on....

Well nobody here is going to just link it to you, but there are easy ways to figure it out. Research the game pages and their guides. Google and talk to the communities to see what the appropriate versions are for speedrunning and potentially how to get ahold of them.

Are you ...sure you're from Florida? Anyway I think all the RE games were released for PC, pretty convenient.

Thread: Frame rates

Started by: petaQpetaQ

Depends a lot on how the game was made, for most modern games it shouldn't matter. For some it can cause anomalies with physics, collision detection, or other systems while not affecting the actual speed of the game. But for older games where speed is directly tied to framerate it would be a consideration. For example in my main game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night it turned out that even with a relatively modern release on the Xbox 360 with a progressive hdmi signal old broadcasting standards caused slight differences in game performance. North American Xboxes still output hdmi 60 at a refresh rate of 59.94Hz, while the European ones output 60Hz. The port of the game didn't really take this into account so this does result in a very minor advantage to EU systems. (about a second difference per 20 minutes)
