Thread: Proposal for changing/simplifying the runs

Started by: TenkaTenka

hey man .. I have been talking to some people who seem to be a bit put off by how the runs are set up. I think we should think about maybe simplifying them a bit ..
Like, calling the runs Lion / Akira / Dural seems to be confusing for people. They dont seem to understand that thats the person you have to beat .. they think its the person you have to use.

Also having so many different runs for each difficulty just seems a little too cluttered and fragmented
making it hard for people to compete with each other.

I am not going to make any changes unless we both agree - I wanted to stress that.

However I think we could improve this perhaps by making it so that all difficulties compete on the same board
and just chop it down to 3 boards:

(Short Run) (Full Run) (100%)

- Short being the Lion run
- Full being the Akira run
- 100% = Dural must be defeated
and a rule states that any difficulty may be used.

We can add a variable similar to the Character variable so the runner can state which difficulty was used incase they want to filter/sort by difficulty.

Give it some thought .. I just want to simplify it so that people arent confused and put off by it.

If we develop a larger community and everyone thinks we should separate or remove some boards then we can take it from there. For now though, I think we should look at stream lining / simplifying it more.

Thread: Changelog - 15/1/2018

Started by: TenkaTenka

(edited: )

- Added background graphic
- Changed Color scheme to be blue/gold (trying to mesh with the bg graphic)
- Added Variable for Character - set all default runs to Kage (since its the only character we have used so far)
- Added runs for Hard - Lion/Dural and Easy - Dural
- Added rule for the Dural runs "Timer begins the moment you select your character", since its a real time run it really should be defined in the rules and this is how I have been doing it so far. (seems to be the general way to do it in Fighting Game Speedrunsl).

Let me know what you think, if anything should be changed/removed/added etc.

I'm 50/50 on the Color scheme .. I think it might need some tweaking. I do like how the blue/yellow meshes with the background though.

Thread: Discord Server?

Yea .. while SHVR SR discord is still very welcoming and supportive for all VR Speedruns, I feel like it would be more appropriate to at least have an additional place for us to communicate live so we arent cluttering up the chat with too much irrelevent stuff.

Thanks dude!

I'll make a "Changelog" post in the forum each time I add or modify something. Currently at work, but expect some changes to the site later today (probably around 6-7 hours from the time of this post).

Cheers. 🙂

Thread: Discord Server?

Was wondering if we could get a discord server set up for Lucky's Tale.

Make it easier to talk to each other live. It's also a great way to get newcomers on board if they see a link to discord in the forums or in the resources.

If nobody else is willing, I will set one up this afternoon. Just thought it might be more appropriate if one of the moderators did it.

Hi Lolkiu, was just wondering if you wouldn't mind making me a moderator for the board. I have plenty of ideas on how to improve it.

I would like to help make the board more personalized and presentable for VF2 but adding bg Graphics and changing up some of the visual themes.

I also think that each category could use a "Character" variable, so that the runs can be sorted by character. We could also have it so that runs with different characters dont obselete each other, so that you can easily find "the best Kage run" or "the best Akira run".

This is a good idea because it might show newcomers some strats for the character they specifically wish to use, and also allows people to claim their Character specific WR's alongside the actual Category WR as a separate thing.

For example, I am 12th on the leaderboard for MK2 (Arcade) but I also have the best Scorpion time.

Anyway, I have a decent amount of experience messing with variables and adding features to leaderboards on speedrun.com.

You can see some of the other boards I am moderating for here:

https://www.speedrun.com/To_The_Top
https://www.speedrun.com/DooM_VFR
https://www.speedrun.com/Lone_Echo

I think you will find that I am very open-minded and I am quite happy to oblige with whatever you feel like doing. If you prefer, in the interest of fairness I can opt not to be the one to validate my own runs, incase that is an issue for you.

Please let me know if you would be willing to let me co-moderate this board with you.
