Thread: I've created a software that lets you save coords EASILY

Started by: SiaeSiae

Thank you very much. Everything works perfectly. I am very happy. Now the screenshots are really useful. I have another request for you, if you are interested in improving this.

1)We need a dynamic coordinate map. If I mark the coordinates of the lava lake, and then the coordinates of the village, I want to see them on this coordinate map with the x and z axes. This would be more useful for the cooperative. After all, sometimes you need to go back to the previous screenshot. Until your program remembers the previous screenshot. But once you have learned to recognize the text of the image, you probably know how to teach how to analyze these coordinates. Is it possible?

2) I suggest adding hotkeys that could be used to display or remove additional images. Sometimes beginners need to look at some reference materials on blind travel, some tables with calculations. Sometimes you need to display a picture of how to build a tower or how to trade with a resident. If the program has its own catalog with pictures, you can connect them in the settings, assign hotkeys and display them on the second screen next to the line with coordinates and the coordinate map. Is it possible?

It's a pity that this is not a universal tool for all versions and different screen resolutions.

Thread: SUB system in the leaderboard

If I can get people who know the src of this site to port all the races to Google tables, then I can get what Duncan talked about in our group. There will be an alternative page where you can see your alternative Sub number.

I do not think that this will be accepted because few people are interested . Due to the fact that you can not make different Subs for different categories, you will not be able to make a convenient numbering of Sub places. Unfortunately, this loses its special meaning here. I'll do it in my entertainment leaderboard.

Thread: SUB system in the leaderboard

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

There is a problem. I clarified that it is not possible to make separate subs for each category. I.e. we will not be able to make 1 Sub 13, 2 Sub 14... This will not be appropriate for another category. You can only do Sub 2, Sub 3... Sub 13, Sub 14... This will allow you to see an additional rating inside the SUB, but it will not clearly say that this is the 1st or 2nd Sub of the world in this category. No one will alter the tables. In six months or less, everything will be as it should be.

Thread: SUB system in the leaderboard

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

I think we can already talk about a new concept among speedrunners... It does not matter whether this system is accepted or not. For example, the 8th SUB of the world. In order not to be confused with the place that will remain 200th, you need to additionally call your result the 8th Sub of the world. To be precise, these are runs of less than 21 minutes, but more than 20 minutes. Now there are more than 50 people there. 50 people play at level 8 Sub of the world. I think the designation 8 Sub21 is appropriate. If you have to fix this, you will only need to change the numbers at the end. How do you like this additional concept? I try to take care of the existing values in the community. You won't lose your favorite thousandth places because of me. Simply, you will have a stable figure for determining your place by SUB. Everyone is already playing, considering their achievements of a certain SUB more interesting than a position in a large table. Even a beginner jumps with joy when he was able to overcome SUB 1h30 or SUB 50. Everyone has long considered their level using SUB, and not using the rating in the table. I suggest we just formalize it.

Thank you for your comments.

I think that the SUB system can be implemented in all categories. As far as I know the capabilities of the moderator in the organization of the leaderboard, then in each category can be added their own separate SUB, so that there is no confusion.

The division into the old seed and the new seed is unlikely to be here, but in fact it is not fair. You can't compare runners from different SET SEEDS. My new leaderboard will have separate leaderboards for each SET SEED. This will be done in Google tables and therefore formulas can easily make any filters, unlike the restrictions of this site.

If you decide to leave a comment, please explain the reason so that we can see the weight of the arguments. Just saying what you like or dislike may not be too influential, or superficial.

Let me remind you again that I only want one SUB variable, which would be a filter and an alternative number of stable places.

You will never lose your No. 8 spot or No. 20 spot, regardless of the number of people in front of you. The old system will also work. I'm not asking you to cancel it. But my addition will also give you additional tops, where in your SUB you can be in 1st place, celebrating a small victory. You will see yourself in this top on the 1st place in the same way as in 1.16.1 according to the Vanilla filter, Korbanoes remains the world champion. Just take a look. Then in the next SUB you will also compete, being in the top three on your SUB filter.

The only problem for implementing this is who will add a specific SAB to each old race? There are now more than 1,700 runners in the RSG 1.16+ table. This may be the main reason why supermoderators will abandon this idea. The fact is that we don't manage to check the races. Now there are about 1,100 races in the queue and this figure is steadily growing, despite all our limited efforts. Incredible verifiers appeared among us, who managed to check thousands of races in a short time. But even with these generals, our battle with content streams is losing. Against this background, it is difficult to force even me to edit thousands of races because I am a brake... ))

But I thought of a lazy solution to this problem. We don't need to edit everything now. Let the time pass when the active players themselves update their races with the new SUB variable. After half a year, it will be possible to filter the old races by the date before the variable is accepted. I don't think there will be enough of them then. This figure itself will be reduced to a few dozen, for example. I want to say that this will not require much effort from the moderators. Moderators will only need to create SUB lists once.

Briefly:
1) Please approve the new variable "Sub". (There will be Sub 1, 2, 3...)
2)Adding a race, you can choose your own Sub. (If your time is 20: 45, then you will have until Sub 21)
3)Sub will become an additional filter. (It will allow you to display a small top player within this time frame. In this top it will be possible to have the first place and have fun ))

When a lot of people participate in a category, as for version 1.16.1, the value in the usual distribution of places in order is lost. It seems to me that we need to come up with another form of identification of places where there would not be such ephemerality or illusory as now. What do I mean by that?

Let's say you have 500 seats now because you ran for about 26 minutes. After a while, your place becomes already 550 because a lot of people tried to run faster. Then what is the point of such a non-stable system?

The numbers of your place, in this case, do not mean anything at all. They are so temporary that even for a world record tomorrow there is no guarantee that it will be the first place. Confirmation of this is a recent case in the 1.16.1 category, where the new Illumina record did not last very long. As a verifier, I've seen it. Illumina was not happy about the event for long. New names appeared ahead in just a day or two. For those who know a little about psychology, this state of affairs seems even destructive, the cause of apathy and depression.

So, the places in the top are illusory. Among the lower places in the top, this is a common problem. You win the place with great difficulty, and tomorrow some " upstarts" )) cancel your achievement, push you far far down... Agree that this is not quite the right position. Although I understand that there should be losers in the competition, but not in the one thousand five hundred place... This has all reached the point of incredible absurdity in my opinion.

What does it mean 500 place or 1500 place? Doesn't mean anything at all. But in the 500th place there is now a player with SUB 26 and in the 1500th place there is a player with SUB for more than an hour. And I thought that SUB might be the solution to this problem of tops. Of course, on this site it is not provided that the places are distributed somehow according to the allocated SUBS, but I am developing my own, unofficial leaderboard, in which I try to solve this problem in advance. But even in the official leaderboard, I see an opportunity to do this, which I will tell you about later.

It seems to me that it is possible to assign places to each SUB. For example, the first place is SUB 13, the second is SUB 14, the third is SUB 15... If you look at the table now, there will be 1 person in the first place, 2 people in the second place, 7 people in the third, and so on. The bigger the SUB, the more people there are. I suggest counting places in a SUB way. In this case, on SUB 20, all seats from 93 to 120 will be considered as the 8th place. And even when in the existing top it will no longer be 93 and 120, but 203 and 415 places, it will still be the 8th place. Agree that this is much more reasonable and interesting.

Within a single SUB, a large group of players can form, who will want to indicate their seniority if they ran faster. This will be quite possible if there is a top inside a single SUB. Thus, a player can have an 8-place position in the SUB, and a 20-place position inside the SUB. It turns out such an interesting number of places 8/20. 8 will be a stable place, and 20-a variable place for those who prefer to see the ascent to the top of the SUB.

So for a player who is trying to overcome the boundaries of his SUB, there will be much fewer opponents, not a thousand, but a couple of dozen people. This will be more convenient. Then it would be great to do such a simple sorting of the races by their main SUB. There's not much to do for that.

When I moderated the map for speedrun, I was able to experiment a bit and realized that we could introduce an additional SUB variable for players to fill in. It can then be output through a Filter, just as you can output the race results for a certain version of Minecraft. So, for 1.16+ , you can choose SUB 20 and display only a small list of competitors, a small top, where the best thing is that you can be in the first place. )) You can be at least somewhere in the 1st place. )) It will be fun mini championships, if you want.

Someone will eventually leave SUB 20, moving to SUB 19. Your place may be the first, even through no fault of your own... )) Where else will you get so much joy, where your rivals give way to you, and do not displace you? This model, unlike the existing one, is not aimed at the disorder of a person, but at his inspiration. And to do this, just enter the SUB variable and set all the standard parameters for it.

Of course, we will have to do some work to add SUB to every race that currently exists in the rating, but it is worth it in my opinion. After all, the popularity of speedrun in Minecraft will grow, the number of participants will increase, it will not decrease. These 1500 places have long been of no interest to anyone and cause only ridicule if you say that you are in 1500 place in the world in speedrun in 1.16.1. Instead, it would be more pleasant to realize yourself in 60 place and inform your friends about it. Please like it if you like the idea. Offer this idea to your community and so we can someday influence the adoption of this innovation.

Well, let's say we have a variable SUB and we can output a special top for this SUB through the filter. How will it be seen in the overall top that instead of the illusory 120th place, you have a stable 8th place in the world?

Editors need to specifically refer to SUB 13, for example, as "# 1 SUB 13". And so on (#2 SUB 14, # 3 SUB 15). At the same time, the old top system remains familiar, but it will be possible for many people to see themselves as No. 3 in the world in it, despite some details. If you filter out the details about this # 3 SUB 15, then you can find yourself, for example, in the 20th place among all #3. Everything. So your seat will be 3/20

If a fairly rare world record is already set that adds a smaller SUB, such as SUB 12 or Sub 11, then the moderator will only need to edit the names by changing the number. In this case, you can lose your 8th place, getting 9, but this will be rare because WR is increasingly difficult and unattainable.

I think this is quite a useful tool in our vast top.

Thread: My thoughts on how to properly prepare proofs of your cool PB or WR

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

(edited: )

In order to filter out real records from fake ones and ease the torment of verifiers checking disputed races, it was decided to follow 5

Reason for rejection:
"Insufficient data for verification. Send all the data and repeat. Details here: "

1) Worlds. The main proof of this game
2) the Pb Set. Additional proof with a link to a playlist of videos with normal PB progress
3) a Lot of work. Additional proof is a link to a selection of videos of many hours of attempts in this category.
4) Broadcast. Additional proof with a link to this broadcast
5) Raw video. Secondary proof of the raw race video
6) the Openness of the player. Not resistance to verification.

1) Worlds. The main proof of this game

is That you need to save 3 worlds:
№1 World (Previous)
№2 World (WR or Cool PB)
№3 World (Stop recording)
Save everything in one archive immediately after recording and put a link to it in the comments.

You can't re-enter these worlds. Don't enter them. Put them separately and archive them.
World No. 1 controls the probability of gluing
World No. 2 is compared with the race data, confirms the time and other parameters
World No. 3 additionally controls some possible deception attempts

Without #1 and #2, a high-ranked race will not be considered at all. If you are used to deleting the previous failed world, your race will be rejected because it is unverifiable.

So, you don't delete world #1. If you reset it, you continue to record how you create world # 2. Otherwise, if world # 1 was long, you can start recording from the title screen and create world # 2, where world # 1 will be visible.

After setting a record in the world No. 2, you continue to wash down the video to post a seed in it. Then you need to go out and create world # 3, from which you can immediately exit. After that, you can stop recording or continue, showing your emotions of joy. You have done everything correctly.

2) the Pb Set. Proof of a link to the video playlist where normal progress in PB will be displayed

If you installed a cool PB without intermediate ONES, this is a big minus. You don't need to send intermediate results to the site, but upload them to your YouTube playlist. Keep a timeline of your success. If you are shy or don't want to clutter your channel with this, but make these videos with access via the link. Collect enough of your PB's in a playlist with link access. It is good to have at least 5 intermediate PB. If the PB is not present or not sufficient, the race will be rejected as doubtful due to insufficient data to fully confirm it.

3) a Lot of work. The proof is a link to a selection of videos of many hours of attempts in this category.

Usually, all honest players go to a high result for many months and even years. It is important to note that your progress should take at least a few months, preferably half a year. If you set a record in a few days, a couple of weeks, or even a couple of months, we will have the right not to consider your result provable and not to understand your channel.

4) Broadcast. Proof with a link to this broadcast

If there is, add a link to the broadcast where you set this record. This will add some more weight to your race. Get addicted to broadcasting on YouTube or Twitch. With OBS-Studio, you can simultaneously broadcast and record the race on your computer. This broadcast can be an additional proof.

5) Raw video. Proof by raw video of the race

This proof may sometimes be required if the examiners ask you to do so.
If you want to edit or edit a recorded video or comment on it, first archive the original video or create a copy. Some video editing programs can change important parameters that will make your race unverifiable and rejected.

If you were asked to send a raw file and you have a raw video recording of this race without changes, then send it via a file sharing service, such as Google drive, leaving us a link. YouTube videos can be transcoded. This won't do. The only exception is broadcasting in some cases.

If there is a chance that there will be extraneous sounds in the video that you don't want to publish, you can record without a microphone, but you can't change the raw video or optimize the sound quality. To avoid this, record without a microphone. Videos with cut-out audio are also not allowed. There must be either the sound of the game itself, or the sound of the microphone.

If you anticipate that the reviewers may request a raw file, then prepare it in advance and leave a link in the comments for the race. This will be a sign that you are trying.

6) the Openness of the player. Proof is not resistance to verification.

If you have to ask for a long time to send all the materials for verification, we consider it an attempt to hide the deception or shortcomings of the race. If you have included all the necessary data in the comments and they are easy to find and download for verification, it means that you have nothing to hide. However, sometimes the reviewer may ask you to answer questions, send screenshots, or show a screen with game settings, game files, video editing programs, etc. (as part of the race data).

Resisting these requests or red tape with promises to do it much later may be regarded as an attempt to hide something. If you really value your results, you will try to find a few minutes to respond to the requests of verifiers in time. There are cases when players resisted verification and created additional difficulties for themselves, showing disrespect for the hard work of verifiers and moderators. A disgusting manner of interaction, a bad reputation as a cheater can take a Central place in the verification of the race.

You can't justify the urgency of your business or moving to another city while proving the legality of your race. If you plan to be very busy in the near future (1-2 weeks), do not send your race until you are free. Otherwise, your "employment" will be seen as resistance. Just choose the right time to start your proof and bring it to the end.

To avoid blocking dishonest players and allow them to play fairly after critical errors are detected, all disputed races will now be rejected with the wording " Insufficient data for verification. Send all data and repeat. "

Warning:
1) if there are no necessary worlds to check, then the race is rejected without consideration.
2) If there are worlds but not enough PB, then the race is rejected without consideration
3) If there are worlds, there is PB, but little labor on your channel, there are no multiple attempts, then the race is rejected without consideration
4) If there are worlds, PB and a lot of attempts over a long time, but it happened outside of the broadcast, the race can be considered after some time of studying your content. Because of the record in the broadcast, this decision would have been faster.
5) If you have 1-4, but we still have concerns due to oddities in your race, we can ask for a raw video file. If it is somehow corrupted or does not match, the race will be rejected because the data is not verified.
6) If you provided all the listed data with great disrespect to the inspectors, taking them many hours or days, then your race may also be rejected, even if it is legal. It's just that in WR, we are increasingly guided by the principle where doubts outweigh evidence. If there is a slight doubt, especially in WR, the race will be rejected until the player is fully prepared to prove the validity of their run.

Thus, we are trying to make it harder to get world records and cool PB, leaving this goal only for serious players. This applies mainly to RSG categories, but may be required in other categories in some cases. Thanks for understanding.

If you want to edit or edit a recorded video or comment on it, first archive the original video or create a copy. Some video editing programs can change important parameters that will make your race unverifiable and rejected.

If you were asked to send a raw file and you have a raw video recording of this race without changes, then send it via a file sharing service, such as Google drive, leaving us a link. YouTube videos can be transcoded. This won't do. The only exception is broadcasting in some cases.

If there is a chance that there will be extraneous sounds in the video that you don't want to publish, you can record without a microphone, but you can't change the raw video or optimize the sound quality. To avoid this, record without a microphone. Videos with cut-out audio are also not allowed. There must be either the sound of the game itself, or the sound of the microphone.

If you anticipate that the reviewers may request a raw file, then prepare it in advance and leave a link in the comments for the race. This will be a sign that you are trying.

6) the Openness of the player. Proof is not resistance to verification.

If you have to ask for a long time to send all the materials for verification, we consider it an attempt to hide the deception or shortcomings of the race. If you have included all the necessary data in the comments and they are easy to find and download for verification, it means that you have nothing to hide. However, sometimes the reviewer may ask you to answer questions, send screenshots, or show a screen with game settings, game files, video editing programs, etc. (as part of the race data).

Resisting these requests or red tape with promises to do it much later may be regarded as an attempt to hide something. If you really value your results, you will try to find a few minutes to respond to the requests of verifiers in time. There are cases when players resisted verification and created additional difficulties for themselves, showing disrespect for the hard work of verifiers and moderators. A disgusting manner of interaction, a bad reputation as a cheater can take a Central place in the verification of the race.

You can't justify the urgency of your business or moving to another city while proving the legality of your race. If you plan to be very busy in the near future (1-2 weeks), do not send your race until you are free. Otherwise, your "employment" will be seen as resistance. Just choose the right time to start your proof and bring it to the end.

To avoid blocking dishonest players and allow them to play fairly after critical errors are detected, all disputed races will now be rejected with the wording " Insufficient data for verification. Send all data and repeat. "

Warning:
1) if there are no necessary worlds to check, then the race is rejected without consideration.
2) If there are worlds but not enough PB, then the race is rejected without consideration
3) If there are worlds, there is PB, but little labor on your channel, there are no multiple attempts, then the race is rejected without consideration
4) If there are worlds, PB and a lot of attempts over a long time, but it happened outside of the broadcast, the race can be considered after some time of studying your content. Because of the record in the broadcast, this decision would have been faster.
5) If you have 1-4, but we still have concerns due to oddities in your race, we can ask for a raw video file. If it is somehow corrupted or does not match, the race will be rejected because the data is not verified.
6) If you provided all the listed data with great disrespect to the inspectors, taking them many hours or days, then your race may also be rejected, even if it is legal. It's just that in WR, we are increasingly guided by the principle where doubts outweigh evidence. If there is a slight doubt, especially in WR, the race will be rejected until the player is fully prepared to prove the validity of their run.

Thus, we are trying to make it harder to get world records and cool PB, leaving this goal only for serious players. This applies mainly to RSG categories, but may be required in other categories in some cases. Thanks for understanding.

Thread: What category should a beginner start with Minecraft speedrun?

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

A frame that you can fit in any categories to your liking:
1) Short categories
2)challenge or achievement
3) Simplified full walkthrough
4)Complete Minecraft walkthrough

You can guess that if someone likes the Full inventory category or performing some kind of achievement, challenge, then why not try this category on the second step? I didn't mention any categories, such as the Hero of the village. I think this also applies to the second step because it takes a little more time and requires skill.

For a beginner, the most important thing is not to take on too complex categories, so as not to be upset by failures. After all, some masters have succeeded by making thousands of unsuccessful attempts. Famously said radicalelder: "It's a good way not to feel bad when you reset and get a useless (dragon%) spawn." It's very frustrating to waste a lot of effort without getting any PB (Personal Best). If you first set simple goals, short categories, you will be in a good mood to continue training. I think that the most important thing in this hobby is not the result created in pain, but life in the pleasure of what you play and you succeed. You may not be able to appear among the top players in a year or 5 years, but you were overjoyed when you set an achievable goal and conquered this small peak. You went up and beat yourself in the past. I think that the main victory is that you will have a lot of reasons for mental comfort from what you have mastered and what you have achieved. World Champions don't have as much joy as a rookie who jumps with happiness when he has improved his PB. Even if it was not a full walkthrough, but just Full inventory, it gives you no less joy. There is a lot of joy ahead...

Start with the smallest, short category. Start enjoying your every success. You don't have to send your own PB to the site. Beginners like to spam with their PB's. This is not necessary. Do as I do. On my channel, I post all my PB, but I send one to the site that I can't improve for a long time. The joy of this is no less. You play primarily for your own joy.

When you look at the standings now, you see an unassailable mountain of names with incredibly fast results. It seems that it is impossible to conquer this peak for you. There seems to be no reason to be particularly happy when you are in the 60th place or even in the 20th. But you must understand an interesting illusion of time. After all, once the best time was so big. I remember when 1.16 started in 50 minutes and they were the Champions. I created a file with the history of world records. Look:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oVWftKpb3KdUfSZZP8JOcQ6HbbzaLNUnsy62HIUHwrA
You will see there that in the spring of 2017, RSG 1.9+ was over an hour old. Because when you run for an hour, you are the 2017 world champion. Can you imagine? You are not a beginner - you are the 2013 world champion if you run in 2 hours. )) So you get a good reason to be happy.

Interesting? Given example...
I never chased after new technology, knowing full well that in a few years it will become more affordable when it becomes obsolete. At the same time, I will get this thing as functional and useful, but easier and cheaper. I just know how to wait and live in the past. Similarly, if you do not chase the expensive and difficult to achieve now, learn to be content with what is outdated, it will be a great reason to spend time happily. Retro champion is a great result. ))

A 2013 champion or 2017 champion is a champion, even if they are at the bottom of the table right now.
1. tyger_plays. 2: 12: 00 WR (2019 Mar 13) is currently ranked 340. Did you beat him to it? Congratulations!!!))

Want more fun, novice speedrunner?
Try to divide the leaderboard into small segments. For example, remove the top 200 or top 50 players in your mind and imagine that the remaining place at the top is the top that you want to conquer. Do you imagine yourself the champion of the 200 seats. Then discover the top 100, top 50 and become the champion of the 50th place. If there are about 350 people in RSG 1.9+ now, then you are a 300-person champion. Isn't that something to be happy about?

There will always be those who are better than us and not all will become leaders, but everyone can find a reason for joy by organizing their own competitions. So, I watched Japanese speedrunners having fun like this for a while. They had their own standings, their own website with results. They competed with their clan, among their friends. You can learn from this.

Some of you are actually world Champions in your country. Even if you are not the strongest, but were the first to submit your run on the site, you are Champions for your country or for your friends. Understand this fascinating principle. For a long time, the champion for Russia was Keyta, now it is Dimeax. This way you can create different statistical dimensions for the standings and find a reason to be happy.

Players have fun making their attempts with the sub 60, Sub 50, Sub 40, Sub 30 statement. When they succeed, they become Champions of the past so often. Set yourself the same goals and become Champions not of all time, not of all people, but of your friends, your country or your city, for 2017, not for 2020. That's great, too. Life consists of pleasant little things. Let it be just a lot of fun, if there is not something super-cool and great... Am I right?

1) Obtain Item (usually takes 1s-5 minutes)
You need to find and take an emerald, a diamond or a Golden Apple. With structures, this will be fast, but without structures, it will take a little longer. The essence of this category is successful search or extraction of resources. This is not difficult, but if you want to do it quickly, you will have to think about improving some of your skills. This will start your progress. For example, you need to learn how to use hot keys and place items correctly and conveniently in the hotbar.

2)get Item-Cake (takes 20s-10 minutes)
The task is complicated by the fact that you need to use more components. You need to collect the ingredients for the cake and craft it. You will need cane, eggs, and wheat.

3) All Swords (takes 1-20 minutes)
You need to craft all the swords from all the available ores.

4) All Wood Logs (Takes 2-20 minutes)
You need to get all kinds of trees. To do this, you will have to learn how to quickly look around and move around the world.

5) SSG Enter Nether (takes 3-10 minutes)
6) RSG Enter Nether (takes 3-10 minutes)
You need to get an iron bucket to make a portal and enter the Nether. This is the simplest thing. You can use this skill in the following categories. As you improve this, you will automatically improve your crafting and movement skills in Minecraft.

7) All Minerals (takes 1-10 minutes)
You need to mine Coal, Iron Ingot, Gold Ingot, Redstone, Lapis Lazuli, Diamond, Emerald, and Nether Quartz. Check the rules.

8 ) SSG Full Iron Armor and 15lvl (takes 3-15 minutes)
9) RSG Full Iron Armor and 15lvl (takes 3-15 minutes)
In addition to the fact that you need to quickly get to Nezer, you need to collect a lot of iron, melt it down and craft armor. In Nezer, you need to gain 15 experience levels by collecting quartz or visiting biomes in 1.16+.

10) SSG Peaceful (takes 3-20 minutes)
11) RSG Peaceful (takes 30-60 minutes)
This is an attempt to complete the passage of Minecraft, without wasting time and nerves on the battle with mobs. A very useful category for beginners, which will allow you to go to the end without losing health and get used to reaching the end. Then you just need to increase the complexity.

12) SSG (takes 30-60 minutes)
13) RSG (takes 20 minutes-2 hours)
Having mastered the passage with hostile mobs on Easy, set the difficulty to Normal or Hard. At the same time, we will starve more often, the wounds will be stronger, and the arrows will hit you more accurately. This will make you move faster and more carefully. You will learn all the survival skills.

14) SSG All Bosses (takes 30-60 minutes)
15) RSG All Bosses (takes 60 minutes-3-4 hours)
You need to complete Minecraft by killing the Edge dragon, Wither, and Elder Guardian. If you want to practice killing Wither (10-30 minutes) and Elder Guardian (1-5 minutes), you can also participate in these separate categories.

16)All Version
Try an endurance marathon )) You need to go through all the versions in a row.

You don't have to participate in all the short categories. I consider them training. It is best to completely pass Minecraft. It is always the center of attention.
In fact, for training complete passage of beginners, I recommend using a special mod:
https://github.com/DuncanRL/speedrun-mod/
Works in version 1.16+ with Fabric
The mod allows you to train individual skills:

Nether
Fortress
Bastion Practice
Eye
Stronghold
End Practice
1.14.4 Trading Practice
TNT Practice
Bed (One Cycling) Practice
...

In the mod, you will already have all the necessary items and items. You don't have to search for a village or fortress. If you do not succeed, you can train it with this mod from Duncan.

Designations:
SSG-Set Seed Any% Glitchless
RSG - Random Seed Any% Glitchless

Thread: Are resource packs allowed?

Started by: DavidDCCorbeDavidDCCorbe

I'm testing a lot of texture packs, and I plan to start publishing a list of allowed textures in a while. There are more than 4000 textures at the moment and this is a lot of work... I will take into account all the requirements of speedrun, test the resource packs, and prepare screenshots. This is a big project. I think this work may take more than 2 months. For now, you can follow the basic principles recommended here by others.

Thread: Appreciation to the moderators and verifiers of Minecraft speedrun

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

(edited: )

I have been checking races since April 19, 2020. It took 5 months of this work. I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this and our team, so that the players and even the reviewers themselves would get some comprehensive ideas about the work done.

There is a curious rating of checks among us. You can use it to see who checked how many races. Initially I saw it in this form
https://photos.app.goo.gl/RALUdWxrUWRy1swz6
Then it was corrected and it turned out this way.
https://photos.app.goo.gl/7fQqLTNfonfMAW2Q7

I have my own statistics of what I checked. For each race, I create a data file that I save. Therefore, I was able to calculate how much I actually checked. Until September 15, 2020, I checked 951 races. This does not match the first table or even more accurate data. I thought that the calculation excludes the races of which I turned down. Of those, I rejected 100 runs.

It may also not take into account those races that were rechecked by moderators after me and came out under their name of the reviewer or were rejected by them. On this I can conclude. 951 (total) -100 (rejected)=851. 851-838=13 this seems to have been fixed by the moderators. In any case, I checked 951 races.

In total, our team tested at least 7,000 races. I think that this can be multiplied by 10% of rejected races and get a more realistic figure, somewhere around 10000. This list does not include Illumina, which could also check something. There may have been some other people who contributed. I don't know.

In any case, all the participants did well. A phenomenal job has been done. I know it can be difficult, but we help hundreds of people find a little joy of success and promotion in their favorite game. You understand this feeling when you participate in competitions yourself, even with a little success.

I thank the entire team for their significant contribution in the form of ideas or time spent on the joy of children and those who do not want to grow up and stop playing. I also thank you for giving me the opportunity to develop this project together with you. It is interesting. Thank you so much.

So, 10,000 races, if you multiply by a minimum of 5 minutes of checking each of them, it turns out that we spent 833 full days checking the races. Most likely, this number can be doubled. After all, checking many races could take 20 minutes or 30. I remember that a couple of times 7-10 hours checked some All Achivements long in 20-25 hours, speeding up the video. Yes, we have to check with acceleration.

There are also ordinary complex races that you check several times. So let's multiply 833 days by 2. previously, there Were no accelerated checks, as now, with the growing popularity of speedrun in Minecraft. So I'll multiply by 2 for statistics )). I think it will be nice to understand that we spent about 1666 days in checks )) for today. There is a bit of Nezer in this figure. )) This is more than 4 years. Just imagine if one or more people did it. So you now have an idea how this work for the players really takes time.

I'm too lazy to calculate how much each of our team spent their time on this, but I was curious about how much on average I gave my time to this joy, mainly to children.
((9515)/60)2=158 days. What?)))
I spent almost a year in five months? ))
Not... Statistics are lying... ))
I don't know.... How?
I checked some races in 2-3 minutes. Okay, divide it in half and we get about 80 days. So, I didn't notice that I spent two months of my life entirely checking out races. Out of 5 months, I sat for 2 months and checked the races. Even if my calculations are not accurate and I only really checked for a month, this is also impressive. That's a lot...

Therefore, dear moderators and verifiers, past, present and future, I am well aware of the sacrifice of time and effort you are all making and I do not regret the words of admiration for all of you. Each of you is a legend in some way. I will mention only some of the most striking ones for my degree of communication. I don't speak English and sometimes I can't understand the Google translation of what they are discussing. Correct me and add if I miss something. I would like this topic to be dedicated to some introduction of players to the reviewers, where they can write a few words about themselves or someone to write about them, if you know them well.

Illumina is a retired super moderator, veteran and champion table leader who has promoted and continues to promote this movement to the masses. Over the past few months, his audience on twitch has grown tenfold. I got on the team because of him. Of the latest achievements, we can highlight his speedrun on all versions of Minecraft, which took about 25 hours. Unique person.

Some of us are developing new features for speedrun. This way the circle of project participants expands beyond the team of reviewers. Someone creates mods for training, someone creates tutorials. This is very encouraging. It is hoped that there will be a special client for a speedrun, which would exclude the forging of races and will accelerate their validation.

Sorry if someone just couldn't get to know them properly yet. Many of you are great speedrunners and more. It's amazing how you combine school, work, life, checking races, your own PB and WR. You are unusual people, the best of the best in this area of The minecraft universe.

Since no one is paying for your work, I think it would be nice to thank you and mark it with likes. That's why I started such a post on the forum. I think that if I had a good translator and knew you better, when I gave this speech at a tournament where all the participants of our competitions were gathered, all these thousands of people would have given you a standing ovation for a few minutes. If they understood what you were doing for them, how much effort you were expending, they would all stand up and applaud you as their heroes.

Some are surprised that there are not many speedrun leaders among the local moderators and verifiers, and there are no particularly prominent successes in competitions at all. This is because instead of training and trying to play, we spend a lot of time checking. What is comforting in this case is the knowledge that we can all boast that we have tested some new world champion. Somewhere down there is our nickname. )) We invisibly ran his championship race with him and sanctified it with glory by clicking on the "Verifi run" button...

To some extent, especially if we support a player or have chosen an idol, we naturally share their success, the joy of success. I think it should be comforting and encouraging for us, as testers, to have some unity with the players when choosing favorites and waiting for them to reach the top. I think we should enjoy our work in this way, getting the excitement and sense of brotherhood from it with someone familiar and interesting. We can receive words of gratitude from colleagues and well-wishers who are happy with our efforts. We also need a little leniency because we sometimes make mistakes and take a long time to Mature to do something great.

I believe in each of you and I know that if you value people, even the smallest ones, they get a lot of energy for their talent. I can't spend any money to appreciate your work, but I hope that you will feel a surge of energy from my understanding and respect for you and your work. For me, this list with the number of checks is a monument to our joint work, where not only the head is important, but also what supports it. )) Even if something is at the bottom, it is no less important to the whole world... Thank you to everyone who creates this world, lights portals to new dimensions...

Thread: Verifier tips for speedruners

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

(Please remove too large a quote, leaving the fragment with the complexity.)

Thanks for the question.
- Does it make sense to speedrun on high difficulty?

- It is more profitable to pass at an easy level. There is no dedicated topic for hardcore fans. But in hardcore masters such as Illumina, there is a distinct caste, an elite. Agree ... Let someone seem to have defeated hardcore masters such as tarokitchen and others, playing at an easy level, this is not a clear victory.

In my opinion, hardcore masters outnumber their light opponents by an order of magnitude, even if this is not reflected in the standings.

Difficulty level is not an equal playing field.
Hardcore changes the game a lot:
1) Hunger occurs more often, and recovery is slower
2) Damage from lava, fire and falls is stronger
3) Damage from mobs is stronger, sometimes twice. Skeletons, Piglins and Ghasts shoot more accurately.

Hardcore players are probably more cautious, more prudent, more experienced and arouse my particular admiration. Although I also prefer hardcore, I do not recommend them to get carried away by those who are not in this passion for speedrun for long. Hardcore is time-consuming, too many failures. If you are not a big minecraft fanatic, then play at an easy level and do not worry.

The only champion in Hardcore was and remains the Japanese legend tarokitchen in the RSG Pre 1.9 category. I remember how in one of the races he could set a result of 23 minutes in version 1.7, which is considered more difficult than the now popular 1.14-1.16.

Only this summer 2020, modern champions began to approach and surpass his result achieved 2-3 years ago. However, they do it on Easy mostly. I believe they never beat him or surpassed him. They look like champions, but they are actually a black belt in combat speedrun in Japan.

Major, frequent fixes for many speedrunners from verifiers ...

Read paragraph 27 https://www.speedrun.com/mc/thread/2xb4s/1#d5l39

V E R I F I C A T I O N:// Fixed category

Please be careful not to force the verifier to make corrections.

--------------------------------
R E J E C T
I also want to publish a single list of the main reasons for rejecting the race:

// There is no video or there are copyright issues. Remove the sound and add the race again.
// World creation not shown. Please add a delay to your macro so it shows each screen of world creation for at least one frame. The macro does not fully display the launch of the world.
// Calculators are not allowed
// Fabric api not allowed. Remove this mod from the "mods" directory
// The same video sent twice.
// Add this entry where you start from the title screen of the game. There is no confirmation that this is an RSG.
// Suspicion of using a macro or script. Restore the display of the mouse cursor.

// No seed. (You must include the seeds of peace in the submission comments. Please add the seed and repeat.)
// The F3 data cannot be verified. At the end, you need to remove your timer, chat or webcam from the left side
// The link is confusing. (Great video where it's hard to find the start time of a player. Please add the time you want to check and repeat.)
// Seed published at start. (This is strictly allowed only in the pre 1.9 version for co-op games where "Co-op Spawn Finder" is used)

// Snapshot. (The use of an incomplete version does not participate in normal competitions)
// Forbidden modification. (Permitted strictly only OptiFine up to version 1.15 and Sodium, Lithium, Phosphor for version 1.15 and higher)

// The texture pack does not follow the guidelines in the rules
// Using shaders is not allowed

// A forbidden glitch was found. (In this category, the use of special glitches and bugs of the game is prohibited)
// Clear water. (It is forbidden to use this advantage)
// Used zoom (It is forbidden to use this advantage)

// The cooperative start is not correct. (The second player entered the server before the time set 0 command)
// Theoretical proof of the completion of the cooperative race. (There is no video evidence of other players entering the portal. Please add a confirmation link in the comment and repeat.)

Thank you for paying attention to this. I hope you will make the necessary adjustments to your races yourself before submitting them for review.

Now I want to give detailed advice. Some of them are captured in the rules, and some are advisory in nature. However, following these guidelines would be enjoyable for verifiers.

----------------------------
T I P S
1. Show Start Screen
2. Show the selected difficulty of the game

The complexity can be confirmed in another way, in the F3 parameters, but not in all versions, but after version 1.8.x:
Local Dificulty: 0.00 - Peaceful
Local Dificulty: 0.75 - Easy
Local Dificulty: 1.50 - Normal
Local Dificulty: 2.25 - Hard
Local Dificulty: 2.25 - Hardcore

3. Please use two timers (more details later)
Timers must be clearly visible.
The timer should only be started after entering the command time set 0 in co-op, starting to move in the game. Some start the timer and start generating the world. It is not right.
Often players use only one timer, less often without any timers at all, which forces the verifier to count the time manually. This complicates verification. Two timers are the best standard.

Trust me, having two timers is a tribute to our work in checking your races. It is sometimes difficult to count IGT manually, especially when players are paused. It seems like a trifle to you, but we spend a lot of time to verify your data later. Timers help us a lot. Do not be lazy to help the verifiers by showing two timers in your races, RTA and IGT.

There is no strict obligation to use a timer yet. You can see some of the players' races taken, however they don't have timers. This might decide that you don't need timers either. But it takes a good reason to be free from timers. Your computer slows down even without timers and you can't optimize everything. If you do not have lags and you play without timers, then you demonstrate your laziness and disrespect for the work of verifiers.

Imagine a situation where the player pauses the game many times. IGT excludes pause times. How can verifiers check this time? Sit down and write down on a piece of paper the time of one pause, the time of the second pause, etc. Then you need to add everything up. This is extra work in this age of technology ... I just feel sorry for my time. And if what we do for you is dear to you, try to do something for us. Take our simple tips and share them with your friends so we don't have to test every newbie.

If your computer is slowing down and you can't use the timer, then open the statistics at the end of your race, rewind down to the game time data. This is the IGT time.

4. Do not block anything on the left side of the "F3" data and game chat. The exception is the fairly transparent timer on the left.
At the end of the run, you must enter the information, the seed command, and press F3. Information should not be covered by anything.

The correct position of the timer is on the right, but not in the corners of the screen. In corners 4 and 6, there may be YouTube or Twitch logos that sometimes close the timer, which is inconvenient when checking. The position of the timer on the left, in corners 1 and 3, is possible if it is semi-transparent and does not prevent you from seeing important chat data and F3. ((Adjust the semi-transparency of the timer on the left or remove the timer from the screen at the end, showing F3). Well suited for the timer position 8. But I recommend more to do the timer in position 5 on the right, maintaining the convenience for checking. You can place additional windows with a webcam, stream chat, donaters and subscribers in the right corners. Zone 7 is suitable for this, but place the timer in one of the places in zone 5. https://photos.app.goo.gl/rw2joePQ79LuZq6Y6

5. When filling out the form on this site, submitting the result of your race, be sure to enter two times.
First, you need the time of a regular timer from the beginning of the movement to the end. Then "In Game Time" is needed, which should be less. its essence is that the time of generation of worlds and a pause is subtracted from the time of a regular timer.
IGT time you can specify the same as usual. If you do not specify IGT time at all, then your place in the leaderboard will be incorrect.
If you don't want to count your IGT or don't know how, then write it equal to the time of a regular timer.

Even in a co-op game where a place is not ranked by IGT, if you do not write it, then your place will not be correct. In co-op, you must also write your RTA time in the IGT field

If IGT differs from RTA by about a minute, I start checking it closely. Sometimes I find that the time stated by the timer does not correspond to reality. Real IGT time is much less, which can be seen with the naked eye from Mir and Nether downloads. This happens within 10 seconds, not a minute.

If this embarrassment occurs in a cooperative game, then I understand this lag, due to server lags. But if it happened in a single player game, I consider it to be some kind of system error, a glitch. Yes, other moderators may disagree with me, but I believe that the result of the competition should be obvious from different points of view and prove visually. Otherwise, it looks like software cheating. Even if I'm wrong, I want to stick to this clear logic for everyone.

I don't care if the server counts the time slower due to lags. At this time, the player continues to move in the RTA time dimension. And I cannot forgive the server for its lags, considering this time to be accurate. Even if there are server lags in the single player game and I have to accept the lags of the official Geo IGT timer, I will not. I'll stick to the simple logic that the only thing that should be subtracted from the RTA time is the world load time and the pause time, which is visible on the screen.

In this regard, I have a request that if your IGT is somehow very different from the RTA, then write in advance in the comments why and where you pause. Otherwise your IGT will be fixed. If the video is complex, then IGT can be equated by me with RTA, so as not to dig into it. Therefore, you better point out in advance the moments where there is an excuse for your abnormal IGT.

The timer is not always a proof for the verifier because the verifier also tracks the video gluing. The start and end time of the race is controlled, especially for those who do not use timers at all. Also, timers may not always be stopped in time or simply glitch. Therefore, it is better for you to double-check your result yourself several times so as not to slow down the verification pipeline of the verifiers. An indication in the comments about the features of your race, glitches, lags, pauses, reboots is only welcome.

If the community wants to help the verifiers, they can do so by judging their race. The first judges of your race should be yourself. Try to find fault with him. Nobody needs reticence. Your victory must be clear and unconditional. Level up on those to whom it is impossible to find fault.

If you can provide me with any compelling arguments, then I'll consider. If it's important, then prove it. But make a new PB better. Try using two IGT timers next time. One from Geo and the other from Kohru in LiveSplit. If the result is strange, you must prove it, help the verifier understand your characteristics of the computer or the programs used. Better to avoid any oddities. You must have a motto - clear victory.

6. Choose your version of the game carefully. Errors are very common where version 1.4 is indicated instead of 1.14.4
Try to double-check. Basically, the verifier spends time correcting the race data.

7. If your race does not start from the beginning of the video, then indicate the start time of your race in the comments.

8. There should be a seed in the commentary.
It would be great to write a few words about the traits of this seed if it has benefits. For example, it would be valuable to write that on the spawn there was a village or a desert temple nearby, that in the Nezer you immediately appeared in the fortress, that a lake of lava was easily found, that there were good caves ... Maybe someone will come in handy. Your seed can become famous. Just write that the seed is cool.

9. When playing with a friend in co-op, you must open the world to the network, allowing only yourself to cheat. Then you must enter the command "time set 0". After entering this command, a friend can join the game.

A friend's video is not required if you end the game in person. If you were killed and a friend finished the game, then his video is required. Include a link to it in the comment.

10. Do not use prohibited mods. If you have a weak computer, use "OptiFine" (if it is allowed for this version of the game). Will slow down the recording less. You can also make the chunk loading range shorter. I recommend 8-10 chunks.
For version 1.15+ Optifine is banned from August 16, 2020. Fabric Loader + Sodium (+Lithium+Phosfor) is recommended instead

Do not use other mods for Fabric. A common mistake of inattentive speedrunners is to use "Mod menu" and "Fabric api". Don't forget to remove them from the Mods directory.

You can remove lags at the beginning of the game, where the first mining of blocks freezes, the blocks that have already been mined may not disappear. To do this, you need to set the following graphics settings:
Performance / Fast RENDER - OFF
(It's enough)

11. Don't use a texture pack. The more vanilla your Minecraft looks, the more trust and respect you have. Best quality vanilla textures are fine. Transparent menu and inventory interface is prohibited. Shortened weapons are prohibited. Brighter allocated resources are prohibited.

12. The last change in the rules gamma set to not great 5

13. It is very inconvenient at times to check videos on google drive. Create a YouTube channel. Upload the video there, allowing access via the link, if you do not want to open the video to your other subscribers. YouTube is the most convenient for reviewers and I recommend storing your PBs on such a channel. On Twitch, sometimes it is impossible to flexibly control the video, to make the speed higher and the video quality lower. Twitch is not very convenient for this.
For example,
Chinese speedrunners often save videos at bilibili.com. I cannot download it from there and check it carefully. After all, some categories need to be checked by frames, by milliseconds. bilibili.com is not suitable for this. It is better to post a link to download the video if there is no other choice. I can download it and check it.

14. If you are late to stop the timer, you do not have to indicate that time. You can indicate a more accurate time by looking at it carefully on the video frames. We are not obliged to clarify it to each player and fix it. If the time is a little longer, we do not correct it. This is your task.

15. It's just a dream. )) Do not submit all your PBs to the site. Try to send your best time, which you can't improve for quite some time. We call this PB spam. It really takes a lot of time to consider every outcome of your every day of progress. Try to send your best result in at least a week, and preferably two weeks or even a month. I personally do that. If I know that I can improve my time in a few days, I don't consider it important to send it to the site. I've been coaching one category for a month now, having installed a dozen PBs, but I haven't sent any of them to the site. I encourage newbies to do the same, respecting the time of the verifiers.

16.You cannot move to make sure the seed is right for you. An exception can only be in a cooperative game. You can only change the first person view to the third person view. The beginning of your movement is perceived by the verifier as starting the timer. Your time may be corrected because of this.

17. If your IGT timer shows too much lag from real time for no reason, then your IGT time can be corrected by the verifier. The time will be set equal to the RTA timer. If you want to help the verifier understand this, then explain in advance in the comments where questions and misunderstandings are possible. You can indicate where you have a special pause in the race or another reason for a large IGT gap. Otherwise, there is a chance that your video will be rejected.

18.Explanation of timers:
You can use two timers
1) Usually LiveSplit timer https://livesplit.org/downloads/
2) IGT timer here https://www.speedrun.com/mc/resources

The easiest way:
Minecraft IGT in LiveSplit Tutorial

IGT timer works automatically if you start it before playing.
It does not automatically count the time of world generation by your computer, as well as the pause time in the game when you left the menu with the "Esc" key. This makes your IGT time the most accurate.
IGT timer refreshes the time on the screen when exiting the world generation, at the end of the game, and also during pauses.

IGT time you can specify the same as usual. If you do not specify IGT time at all, then your place in the leaderboard will be incorrect.

It happens that someone indicates the time of their entire video as the RTA time (when filling in the data of the run submission form, this time is upper). We are not interested in the timing of the video. Time must be specified from timers. As a last resort, if there are no timers, we ourselves count the time from the beginning of the movement in the world to the end of the game. This would be a rough calculation and it is in your best interest to use timers and display them on the movie recording screen.

19.It is recommended to show the game settings at the end of the race.
1) Chunk drawing distance
2) Disable dynamic lighting
3) Disabled shaders
4) The presence of fog (In detail)
5) No Fast Math (Performance Settings)
6) No Lazy Chunk Loading (Performance Settings)
7) No Clear Water (in the Quality settings in version 1.9 - 1.12.2. Since version 1.13, this parameter has been removed from Optifine.)
8 ) Default autosave interval
9) Statistics can be shown to confirm some controversial achievements.
10) In the category with achievements, you need to show all achievements
Example:

Perhaps I will supplement this list. When referring to players, I will refer to points from this entry, wanting to draw attention to a specific tip.

20. I recommend downloading and duplicating your PB on YouTube and on your disk. Twitch sometimes rejects a recording. In addition, it is not very convenient for us to check the video on twitch. Download your PB. This way you won't lose your result if something happens. If the video is missing, we can ask you to restore it. Be sure to write about this to the verifiers or moderators.

21. in connection with deception, attempts to present other people's races as their own, we can now demand additional evidence from top players and not only. You need attempts to pass, several hours of video with failures. Need previous PB, too, not in 1 day laid out. If this is not the case, there is a high probability that the video will be rejected, especially if the player does not make contact and does not try to provide evidence. Therefore, I advise you to collect a playlist of your attempts to speedrun, so that you can provide a link if necessary.

Some people don't want to clog up their YouTube channel with non-interesting content, game walkthroughs with mistakes or failures. Some people don't see the point of trying to stream. In order to meet these circumstances, I want to offer you a compromise. You need to record your runs as you normally do. Then you can combine some of these failed attempts and post them with access via a link to YouTube. Personally, I find it even useful for the player, especially when you can review your mistakes and comment on them so that you don't repeat it. So I'm going to create a selection of my failed attempts for each category. Since I'm doing speedrun reviews on my channel, I can post it in the public domain. My subscribers are not so fastidious as to demand special editing from me. And so, do not delete your failed attempts, collect them and post them to confirm your skill.

22. Beginners should not try to go through the entire minecraft at once for a while. For starters, there are shorter and simpler categories. Read about it here https://www.speedrun.com/mc/thread/u0c5c in short, the scheme is something like this:
1) Any short category (get Items, All Wood...)
2) Partial passage or some kind of achivka (Enter Nether, Full Iron Armor 15lvl...)
3) Simplified full walkthrough (Peaceful, SSG)
4) Complete passage (RSG, Co-op...)
23. Do not correct an already accepted race. If you decide to fix your race after you accepted it, it will be sent back to the moderators for review. Make an appointment in advance with the person who accepted your race. Specify what you want to fix in the parameters so that your race is not checked a second time.
24. If there are large lags and freezes. Optifine, which is allowed before 1.16, can help. In 1.16+, you can use Sodium and Fabric. Drawing chunks in Nether in dangerous places can be done 10-8 chunks. You can also pause in the portal until the chunks are loaded.
25. The default auto-save settings are about 4 minutes. This is due to the autosave of the game's internal server, which cannot be changed. If you set autosave for 6 or 12 minutes, the difference between RTA and IGT will increase. So, the difference in 30 minutes of the game can be about 4 minutes, which certainly pleases the player, but is self-deception or an attempt to deceive the verifiers. Don't do this. If the verifier did not notice your pause in the game, send them a link to this place or specify it in the comments to the video, so that there are no misunderstandings. Otherwise, your unusual IGT will be equated to an RTA.
26. Sometimes access to YouTube videos may be blocked completely or partially in some countries. This is done by the author of the music or movie fragments used in the video. Sometimes it is impossible to check such a video. To avoid this misunderstanding, you can send your video to YouTube without sound, or edit it in the YouTube editor by deleting the sound. At the same time, do not forget that for high-rank races, you may need the original, raw video, if you are asked to provide it later.
27. Live Split does not show thousandths of a second. So 35 milliseconds in Live Split means 350 milliseconds. When adding your race, try to keep this in mind.

The most accurate auto-save time is 3 minutes. By default, the game's internal server is saved after 3.3 minutes. This can be viewed in the file optionsof.txt in the line ofAutoSaveTicks: 4000

Thread: Verifier tips for speedruners

Started by: VRplaYKVRplaYK

(edited: )

DISTRIBUTING A LINK TO THESE TIPS YOU WILL EASIER THE WORK OF MODERATORS AND VERIFICATORS (WE WILL NOT HAVE TO WASTE TIME CORRECTING NEWBIES)

This material will be updated. Therefore, add it to your bookmarks and follow new tips.

The first post contains an abridged version of the tips. Details in the second post.

If I didn’t point you to a specific tip by sending only one link, then I just want you to read the entire content. This link is sent to many. You may not need to fix anything, but it would be great if you are aware of the problems of the verifiers when checking the races and help them by spreading this information. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I check the races and often have some inconvenience to check. I'm tired of sending comments to players in private messages. Therefore, I will collect here a list of my recommendations and send only a link, hoping that players will read and make corrections.

An example of the correct filling of the submit form for runs:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/H7GXiia4TgryWZYf9
----------------------------
T I P S
1. Show Start Screen
2. Show the selected difficulty of the game
3. Please use two timers (more details later). For example a LiveSplit timer with RA and IGT settings. Also, the timers should be clearly visible. Or at the end of the race, you can open the statistics and show the game time there.
4. Do not block anything on the left side of the "F3" data and game chat.
5.IGT time you can specify the same as usual. If you do not specify IGT time at all, then your place in the leaderboard will be incorrect.
6. Choose your version of the game carefully. Errors are very common where version 1.4 is indicated instead of 1.14.4
7. If your race does not start from the beginning of the video, then indicate the start time of your race in the comments.
8. There should be a seed in the commentary.
9. Do not forget to enter the command "time set 0" in the co-op and only then allow others to join. Your confirmation video or your partner video should show the beginning of the game poem. Otherwise, the result is not considered.
10. Do not use prohibited mods and mods modifications. Get rid of lags with OptiFine or Fabric + Sodium. "Mod menu" and "Fabric api" don't forget to remove them from the Mods directory.
11. Don't use a texture pack. Careful with Vanilla Tweaks. Much is not permitted in this package.
12. Recommended gamma 3
13. It is recommended to post videos on YouTube. Twitch may delete your videos after a while.
14. Specify the most accurate time yourself, if you like. We are not fixing a time that is slightly longer than it is.
15. Don't spam each PB. Know how to wait a little and break your record, saving our time.
16.Publishing a seed at the start of the game is not allowed, except in some cases.
17. If your IGT is too different from RTA, for a minute or more, explain the reason to the verifiers in the comment. It's just that IGT usually differs by 10-20 seconds.
18.Explanation of timers:
You can use two timers
1) Usually LiveSplit timer https://livesplit.org/downloads/
2) IGT timer here https://www.speedrun.com/mc/resources
19. Show F3, seed and basic settings for a clean speedrun at the end of the run
20. Download your videos from PB and duplicate them to restore them if they are unavailable or damaged.
21. Collect a playlist with your previous attempts and old PB by posting it in the comments. This is additional evidence in controversial points.
22. Here you can find tips on which category to start participating in competitions if you have doubts or failures. https://www.speedrun.com/mc/thread/u0c5c
23. Do not correct an already accepted race.

Sorry for google translation. If something is not clear, write in the comments. I will try to answer.

Here you can read about moderators and verifiers and leave a thank you for their work for you:
https://www.speedrun.com/mc/thread/ttvxa/1#nwn9n
24. If there are large lags and freezes, use the allowed mods and set fewer drawing chunks.
25. Too much difference between RTA and IGT, if there are no pauses, is a known bug for the timer, caused by changing the auto-save settings in the game to non-standard ones.
26. To prevent your videos from being blocked on YouTube because of music, you can upload your videos without sound. Otherwise, verifiers may not be able to access it.
27. Specify the milliseconds correctly. If the timer shows 35 milliseconds, it means 350 milliseconds. In versions Pre 1.9, milliseconds are not needed. Considering that this is a very common mistake, I don't want to fix everyone's time. I'm just deleting milliseconds altogether.

-Why is the race not checked for a long time?
-Your race may be in the queue waiting for verification, which can even take 2-3 weeks. Verifiers may just get tired. Try to maintain a friendly attitude towards them to encourage them to do more checks than they can.

Thread: Is ReplayMod allowed?

Started by: LowderLowder

Competitive speedrun does not allow modifications except Optifine.

You can record workouts with whatever you want. You are not required to send all your runs to the moderators. Sometimes write down just for yourself with this mod.

LowderLowder and KilleDragonKilleDragon like this.
