Nah, we won't delete segmented categories. I will figure the best solution.

Thread: Another Rejected Run...

I accepted that run, cause I was able to get somewhat close times with some not best RNG, and that run shows keybindings and stuff at the end, but I really wish you include demo next time, cause I'm not the only moderator and I just feel that we might not be fair with your runs.
But it still feels weird when I look at speed which you have and keypresses at same time.

Next time only with demo, we have to analyze why we have that feeling.

If it was a feature to separate them in one table then yes sure, otherwise it is just bad presentation of what actually is RTA and what's segmented - people go to leaderboards and 98% of time they only look on first time there, they don't care if it is rta or segmented that is written in some column - that causes misunderstanding in forums/chats/youtube comments.

If you want to run segmented in a game that has ILs you should just do that instead, what ImFuryPro was doing is other thing - he just doesn't understand difference between single-segment speedrun and single-segment video (or he does understand and tries to look better than he is, but I have no idea if he is good or bad at a game, cause he haven't beaten any run legitemately so far).

So segmented stays segmented - moreover it should be in misc. RTA/SS in serious sam is enough of an arbitrary category to be honest, because you get refill on every stage. So it basically makes RTA/SS an IL rush. Doing segmented IL rush makes no sense, so we won't be doing that.

well yeah, but for demos there is a dsda which is archive and makes more sense to send demos there

but in that case, demo would actually be better than settings screen, so send one if can, please

Thread: Another Rejected Run...

not trying to be a nazi mod or anything, but speed looks abnormal and we discussed that on twitter

I also checked how autosr50 looks like and it looks a lot like what is shown in your recent runs

your old ones are not like that

up: also - don't think that's just me hugging my 4th place lol, I can delete this run if you really want this

show it right after you finish your run
no background menuing, no waiting, nothing - just show it as you split after last map and I will believe you

Thread: In-Game time

Started by: Tezur0Tezur0

Sure, but rule should state something like "if no saves/loads used during the run add both RTA and IGT, otherwise ONLY RTA"
Might change that by myself tomorrow or so, when I'm not on a phone 😃

Started by: SeliaveSeliave

SDA haven't updated their rules ever since they were written, and actual misunderstandings already had place (yet rules were only fixed for 100% I believe), so you are not first, you are not last, that's alright. For the fact that rules here were incomplete - yeah, now I sort of realised that name "Single-segment" never stated a proper explanation of what that segment is, so yeah.

No worry, glad we actually managed to figure some solution without going as low as throwing stones at each other 😉

That's like the massive category of glithes where you leave the area that is designed to be your gameplay area and go look for weird stuff.
Pretty much what Ewil said.

Don't want to insult ImFuryPro - runs are good, BUT they are not single-segment (don't state for our single-segment rules at least).
I'll change times, so that they are accurate (since I messed with them). Hope you understand.

Ewil - thanks for those IL tables - great job you are doing!
About HD - don't know, me and freezard were doing fine on those, guess no harm to it though.
About 2 - yeah sure.

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.
