Thread: Why not use IGT for timing levels?

Started by: stathxstathx

IGT is just too inaccurate for any contested levels imo (which'd lead to a lot of non-equal times achieving ties)

Those categories are potentially possible imho, yea.
However, there haven't been any All Worlds runs at all (not even of any%) so I'm reluctant to add more categories in that regard, but if there was a run I'd probably add the category.

Thread: Can i apply for mod?

Started by: Findme4Findme4

I'm generally open to mod requests for games like Archero, but I don't know your retiming experience and would generally prefer users with a good amout of Archero experience as well, so you won't become a moderator now, but might become one at a later date.

Thread: Important change to IL verification/retiming

Started by: TheHSbF6LeoTheHSbF6Leo

(edited: )

TL;DR: IL retiming is now focused on contested runs.
To mitigate the impact of this change, JDMI has been appointed as a new moderator and IL timing rules have been partially simplified.
Due to the currently very high amount of uncontested (meaning the run is the only one in its category) IL run submissions, I have decided for now to at least partially not retime these uncontested IL runs - meaning, if you submit to a previously empty IL category and don't ask me to retime your run, I might not do it. I'll retime the previous run of the category as well if there's competition (please remind me to do so, if I forget).
This change was necessary as I now have significantly less free time to use for retiming and retiming runs where their actual time is irrelevant (as they are uncontested) was a massive unnecessary time investment.
To track this, I have added the "Verified" variable, which denotes retimed&verified runs from other runs. (I might rename it, though...)

Thread: Any% tutorial island should have separate categories for Lag boosting

Started by: Sonic77852Sonic77852

@Sonic77852Sonic77852 Leaderboards will be split when there's a requirement (e. g. you make a run that's clearly better than a lagboosting run, yet the latter is a basically unbeatable WR for you). They're not split right now because there's very little runner activity/high level lagboosting runs.

@JDMIJDMI It's a very "fun" (read: pretty annoying) quirk this game has with inconsistent framerates - On devices with requent fraerate dips, your framerate will spike above the intended 60 fps, which makes the game run faster than it's supposed to.

Only the original six (so no locket, bracelet and book), since they were the only ones that existed when I started this board (I might change it to all nine in the future though, although the averages from before will be kept the same then).

Thread: All Deaths Rules

Started by: OxkniferOxknifer

(edited: )

Just a quick note: Boxes itself can't kill you, so "Crushed by Crate" is impossible (suffocation itself isn't though and I'm going to guess we mean the same thing here, however I'd like to keep both box- and platform-related suffocation under one name). Let's sort out naming and what is different first and then there'll be a new category, All Unique Deaths.
Also there's three different hidden spikes, since two have one semi-hidden stage and one doesn't).
Die to all of them in an AUD run (and die to suffocation!).

By the way, if you want to run All Deaths, you should look at this guide: https://www.speedrun.com/cb_ce/guide/1hgsp

ILs already exist, for every level in every world, with the different completions, so...

(They're under Level Leaderboards if that's what you are asking)

Thread: The difference between NMG and NR

Started by: Th3on3CTh3on3C

(edited: )

Another update: As you might have noticed, the Any% NR times went down from a bit under the normal WR to less than a minute in Marda, Grasi and Winda and slightly over a minute in Zipsa. This is due to a glitch discovery by @SkycloudSkycloud, Timer Reset Glitch (TRG). This glitch allows the ingame timer to be lowered to up to ~6 to 7 seconds before the boss of the world if performed multiple times. TRG is performed by using the emulator-only reset button R (this might not work if you have hotkeys enabled) right when cat bird is disappearing in the final portal, resetting the level, making the player play the boss level again, but also lowering the timer, as discussed [TRG being emulator-only and making the run basically a glorified IL means NR will probably stay in Misc. for the foreseeable future].
(Also, PNP+ has been renamed to Forced Transition Pause (FTP) to differentiate it from normal PNP [since they are pretty different and FTP isn't really a better PNP], although you can of course still call FTP PNP+.)
Have fun and keep on speedrunning cb 😉
Bonus info: here's a run with an input display using TRG, so you can see when to press R to make TRG work (since it can be pretty confusing to hit the correct timeframe):

surely not because the game deleted all my saves for a while, I estimate I have about 160 emu hours in reality
