Thread: Wall clipping

I hate that Chapter 5. I was nearly landing on the wall in Edoras and trying to walk up it to the exit. I got this for the Gullies that may save some time if you go grinding for Black Speech first.

Now we're talking. That's very neat. We're going to need some sort of list of all these that are useful.

Thread: The Black Rider skip

Started by: BEWhiteDragonBEWhiteDragon

The launches and various things, like fish grab in Taming Gollum are dependent on having a high fps, I don't know the exact rate needed for each one, (I said 90 but it might be more), the launch at the start of tracking hobbits is the easiest to get (that's in ASM NG+) others are more specific like in Caradhras and require more precise angles to get the right launch, but they're not like the black riders one which is nearly random

Yes it's that inconsistent, 1 in 50 tries if you're lucky, not recommended unless you're after the best possible time. You just have to hope when you fall in, it launches you out, (assuming over 90 framerate)

Thread: Console VS Emulator

Started by: ZojalyxZojalyx

At the moment the rules are flexible, I don’t know if emulator is different (I'd guess it is). But I couldn't imagine how I'd learn to improve the run without save states. Like, I could see a time at some point you split console and emulator into two category's, and that disc eject glitch probably has to go into a separate category at some point too.

How do you fire a shot? I'm mashing fire and it doesn't work, I can move a bit, but no boom. Don't tell me my loads are too fast.

I think it's less problematic to just ban the trick, it gets messy otherwise. Although if ISlide wasn't using a laptop we probably wouldn't even know how this trick works, and would have used it. It's comparable to high fps, but I think that's just expected if you want to speedrun old games, not sure about this one, it's not something you'd expect.

For me it's 4 to 5 seconds. (Timing the time I'm waiting on the Desktop) So it takes over double the time for your game to do...whatever it's doing.

I'm not sure if this is a legit strat due to hardware possibly making a difference, but it works in some other places, like in frontline, and bridge, possibly others then.

I'm going to guess no, and even if it is, it might be too small a difference to notice or measure.

Who wants a free time save?

On the right vid I keep close to Cat after each 'checkpoint' and she goes faster. Works with Black Cat 3 and probably 2 as well.
Could be done better too. I think if you get far away she slows down, the first chase I think she's at the lowest speed the whole time.

I also switch the token behind the warehouse for one at the start.

I don't remember exactly how to do it, but I took the disk out after the 1st fight in the game, and got out of bounds at the first save point. And somehow got back in bounds over at the crossroads save point. But you would lose every fight, without leveling up first, but still, it's possible.

Loading level sections from the menu, after 'unlocking' them will reset your ammo. I'm not sure if this is a legit strat or not, but I just thought of it while attempting a hard mode run.

For Attack Of The Clones it would definitely be useful. That might be the only time though. Pity there's no extra weapons in the middle of the Wookie Resistance levels.

If you mean the disc eject skip, then it's already a separate category in the Chapters section. It really does break the game, it can skip nearly the whole of the first level for starters.

Thread: Cutscene skip

Started by: BucketPlsBucketPls

I went through the same confusion with 1-4, but luckily was able to beat those times regardless 😉. But it would be interesting to know how you got a save file which allows the first cut-scene to get skipped.

Uh...FinnGamer skipped more than just the first cutscene, but the second and third also.

Started by: defqon_Jandefqon_Jan

Since Freeplay RTA can start from a 100% file, I think extras could be okay for that category.
