Thread: Fake run On Serious sam TFE/TSE

Ewil, I made you a mod on TFE and TSE LBs, so please, sort this out and create segmented categories, since you said you were willing to help.
I must go now.

Thread: Fake run On Serious sam TFE/TSE

Started by: SeliaveSeliave

I wonder how didn't I notice that myself, because I was actually looking through it yesterday (50:something TSE run).
That's not allowed BY ANYONE neither SDA nor http://www.speedrun.com/serious_sam

In fact - that's first time I see someone actually doing that, so I'm truly shocked.
That's actually why I created timing thread, where I suggested adding both IGT and RTA

To ImFuryPro - show me that SDA thread please, it seems that it is not everything that's written there and if so I'll contact them, since that NEVER been the case and was always restricted by community of a game (which normally goes through SDA submissions more closely than I do here).

I wouldn't go as low as calling someone a cheater, but we have reasons to believe that those runs are FAKE and are montaged (we have music resets/ammo bumps in corner with no reasons, also final Playing Time is significantly different).
I was actually contacted by FootBigMike about that before, but he didn't state it THAT badly, so I was like "sure I'll look into it when I have time" and created threads.

As for now I will change times of all these runs for what Playing Time shows.
If you don't like that, ImFuryPro, you are free to remove your runs.
Wouldn't go further in speech until you answer with SDA thread you were talking about.

Thread: In-Game time

Started by: Tezur0Tezur0

Hello, I want to ask you all here 1 question.

In classic series after you finish game, which of 2 timers, that are shown on stat-screen, is more accurate?

Right now the rule "IGT if no loadings" seems a bit nazi. I was considering doing that for a long time now and will be adding separate IGT and RTA columns, also "Has manual loadings" variable with yes/no answer.

Please spread that post to other runners, I need info about that. (REALLY NEED EVEN)

Thanks.

Thread: New mod required for old games

Started by: Tezur0Tezur0

Since old games got so much interest I simply can't handle all that alone (there are some things needs to be done to LBs and I don't have time for that this November).

Big_Jim is THE mod, though not really active (like at all :D) as a runner right now.

Freezard is missing T_T

Yoshipro does some stuff from time to time, but I need a dedicated person that will do a certain thing (that will take some time, though not much).

That might sound like some hard and serious job interview I'm trying to start, yet it is not.

I need someone sane, without lust for power and friendly, so that we can make series LBs better.

Thanks for adding my run, it was half-improvised long time ago, but pretty neat that somebody got to series aswell.
You may add me as a moderator, I'll work around IL tables and will make things look a bit better 😉

Thread: Difficulty Curve

Started by: Tezur0Tezur0

As for now main difficulties are Tourist, Normal and Serious as they add the most reasonable Difficulty curve to the game, changing some strats and making some impossible, also adding some challenge to game other than tricks.

There was a discussion long time ago between me and Freezard, after which we decided that for ILs main difficulties will be Tourist and Serious as the biggest Curve between tricks/survival, though that was about HD series which don't allow to RJ on Tourist, yet it's the easiest difficulty to do harpy/gnaar fly tricks.

For ILs having something inbetween would make no sense, since you can grind it on easiest for speeds and on hardest for challenge (Mental is hardest since difficulty doesn't differ from Hard (not Serious) + enemies become invisible from time to time).

For HD games adding fullgame Normal and Serious makes no sense so far, because they are just much longer. Maybe they will be added under Misc if interest to those categories will appear at all.

I created Serious for both TFE and TSE.
Also added Mental, but I'd explain why did I add it in Misc categories in other thread.

I think I agreed to this, though I wasn't able to delete bfg edition
Just port all times to d3 leaderboards, I'll manage the rest.
Also copy forum threads if there are any.

Thread: speedrun.com Doom speedrunning main thread.

(edited: )

First I need to say that doom speedrunning community is one of oldest in existence and amount of runs done on IWADs (ones that you can find here) is bigger than couple of thousands in different categories, including ILs, TASes, episode runs etc. Ofcource it is impossible to port all that into sr.com without turning it into complete mess.
So why creating doom series on sr.com?
It is very simple - to provide RTA competetion for most known doom games and to show what game is capable of. Normally doom is about demos, that's how it was/is/will be , but that doesn't mean that those who just want to run game semi-casually (or not entirely seriously) have no chances of appearing on any sorts of leaderboards. That's why we created series page.

!!!!!!!!!
Where to find all those thousands of demos?
There is one big archive right here - doomedsda.us - it is being updated every monday. Please note, that DSDA is an archive and not leaderboards, so it has all times for every map, which were ever made and sent there. Also I'd recommend joining doomworld.com forums, for all recent activity inside community. There is also a discord where some people are discussing mapping, runs and stuff - https://discord.gg/zNxGGKQ
!!!!!!!!!!

This thread is created for main discussions and questions that you have. Feel free to ask anything here.

I think that after ESA I'll randomly make 3 (so far) groups of people and randomly select a game for each group.

I actually think that best way of doing things is just adding a variable.

Thread: More difficulties

Started by: Elia1995Elia1995

Nobody really runs NM episodes aswell. If we will add episode NM runs there will be crazy ones from DSDA and that probably will be everything. Other difficulties will not be added.
Just a reminder that Doom series on SR.com mostly for presentation of doom speedrunning and for RTA competition of IWADs. For more stuff you REALLY should check doomedsda and doomworld

Started by: MolotokMolotok

Well I'd split categories to With/Without EE-glitch. Removing all glitches is really arbitrary IMO and let's be honest, district 2 without any glitches becomes a bore (wang car glitch is still fine). But if it will be any%/any% glitchless/any% no EE-glitch that would also be fine.
I mean - only EE IL runner is you Molotok OpieOP
