Thread: Best Experiences while Speedrunning?

Started by: CoolHandMikeCoolHandMike

Best experience was getting a 05:05 time on Game Dev Tycoon's ByeGarage% category, followed up with a near-perfect run of ByeOffice% in 48:15 a few days later which meant I had finally managed to obtain WR on all 4 categories again. Only thing to do now is go for the absolute perfect times on every category.

Awesome, I'll get my hands on a copy as soon a I can then. Btw you should look into getting screen capture software like OBS or Xsplit for your runs.

Hi, I'm interested in running this game but I don't own it at the moment. I was going to buy a copy online but I thought I'd ask first if it is compatible with Windows 10? Cheers.

Thread: Share Strat Forum (Feel Free)

Started by: witchakornwitchakorn

The problem with letting the opposing officers grab free space is often it leads to you having to fight the same force multiple times. However I've often noticed that letting the main three kingdoms fight it out against each other leads to one of them going out and often you can grab much bigger space by killing the larger forces' Ruler.

There's another strat I have in mind but I want to try it in a run first, I'll explain what it is if it works.

Thread: All Hands?

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

Isn't the All Hands a bit unrealistic to have as a category considering the odds of getting a Royal and Straight Flush? You'd have to play literally thousands and thousands of hands before you finally got them. idk I think the idea is amusing but pulling it off would require extreme luck or multiple days of playthrough.

Thread: Longest speedrun you've ever done?

Started by: AxxisAxxis

The longest run I ever did that I never finished was a Bookworm Adventures speedrun, I was 3 hours into it and then out of nowhere the game crashed. The longest run I ever did that I ever submitted here would be my old Game Dev Tycoon ByeOffice% run which was 1 hour and 6 minutes, though now my current WR is 48 minutes for that category.

Thread: Better Strat? (Yellow Turbans)

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

Hi, I was running this game and came up with a possibly improved strat to the one used in the WR run. I wasn't able to get it recorded all the way but I hope to do so in the future.

The idea is to start in Yong Ai first and produce a Hex Mark Saddle to get access to a horse immediately which can then be used to speed up the battles. I also liked getting the Light Orb but I think it'd be faster to not worry about it.

Rather than playing as Lu Bu I instead used a Maxed Out Edit Officer with the Rapier since it's Musou Attack is ridiculously overpowered against enemy officers. Perhaps this is the way to go in the future?

Also I understand why having more officers is good, but surely it'd be faster to just have 1 and simply Station them wherever you need them to be so you don't have to worry about the others? During my run I had 3 Officers and started with 0 Lietenants.

The PB I got was 1hr, 2mins and 36 seconds, mostly due to menuing mistakes and I also missed a couple of bases during one or two of the battles I was in.

I'm not saying this is best, I'm just putting it out there as a possible improvement.

Edit: Did another run with only 1 Officer and got a final time of 54:11. Looking back however I think having at least 2 officers is useful since if you end up missing a base you can order the other one to grab it for you (provided it's still neutral of course)

The main reason I added all 4 difficulties if because they all act slightly differently. Though looking at them now it does seem excessive. I'll remove them now.

Go for it! I'm still setting up categories at the moment but if you want to do an IL run for example then you can. Good luck on finding that disc!

Thread: Order of races

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

Hey, I have some interest in running the GT games but one thing I don't understand is running each race out of order. For example on Sough's Any% WR they go straight from the Sunday Cup to Stars & Stripes Grand Championship. Surely it would be slightly faster to go straight from Sunday Cup to the Clubman Cup since it's right next to it, right? I don't recall there being any car restrictions on it.

Enlighten me so I don't remain ignorant.

Thread: Suggestions for new categories.

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

Good point, I did actually do a "Topic%" run a while back. The thing is with that run is that it felt a lot less reliant on RNG compared to other runs (of course it's still part of the run, this is Game Dev Tycoon we're talking about). I'll happily share the run though there wasn't much commentary while I was actually doing it and it's super unoptimized:

I haven't done 100% yet but it seems like it would be the same thing.

Demo% I've also technically done a run for before but I wasn't recording it, but I don't mind doing redoing it and showing it off as well.

iirc Snakeob was looking into doing an All Achievement run, but then he ran into the roadblock of getting the 11/10 achievement, after speaking to him about the other categories he seemed to show some interest in doing them as well, so I don't feel like at least most of these suggestions would be empty.

Thread: Suggestions for new categories.

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

As I've stated in a previous forum post I have some ideas for other categories that could be added, though I didn't go into detail on what they were. Feel free to consider these or not. Any feedback is appreciated.

Topic% - Research all topics as quickly as possible.
Demo% - Get to the end of the Demo as quickly as possible.
Console% - Release a console as quickly as possible.
100% - Unlock/research everything as quickly as possible.
Achievement% - Get all achievements as quickly as possible (the only tricky thing being the 11/10 one as it's extremely hard to obtain)

I also feel like there should be a leaderboard for Pirate Mode as well as it adds difficulty but also new things that you need to consider, such as reserching DRM and giving away an amount of your company for additional cash.

Cheers!

I would like to be a mod for this game, I have a lot of ideas for potential speedrun categories (Topic%, Demo% to name a couple)

I am very active on this page in fact and despite this speedrun page being somewhat...niche(?), I feel like having another active mod would be a great. My last run took nearly 48 hours to be confirmed

Thread: The World Record for Marathon litearlly says it's tool assisted.

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

For the WR run it said so in the title that it was TA. As for second place, it also looked TA'd, no human player can play THAT quickly and even though it looks like it made mistakes near the end, I've seen TAs misplace pieces so I don't think it's too far fetched to say that the 2nd place record is also Tool Assisted. Just by looking at a little bit of gameplay from 3rd place, you can easily tell it's a human playing. The moves a lot less smooth than what a Tool can produce and they even slow down on occasions to think about where they're going to go next, so in my mind it doesn't looked TA'd.

I might be wrong but it looks very convincing.
