Thread: Need better way to sort Low% runs by % Value

Started by: VideoGameRouletteVideoGameRoulette

ya, I tried doing something similar to this, except we didn't archive the existing board which could be a good idea. As for obsolete option that didn't help at all it would take the fastest time regardless of % so my 12% sub 1 hour run would always beat my 10% 1 hour run since time was faster regardless of the boards going by %, so I'll give the archive trick a try for now since by the sounds of it any more work then that isn't worth it till the updated redesign process is completed. Thanks for the advice.

Thread: Need better way to sort Low% runs by % Value

Started by: VideoGameRouletteVideoGameRoulette

Hi as everyone probably knows Low% leaderboards are the hardest to get working correctly on almost any board i've seen that allows for submission for multiple % amounts so we need a way to sort by first % or items collected then by time after that otherwise the leaderboards just keep getting confused how to determine when another run has better parameters, example i have a 10 and 12% run submit for Axiom Verge but it still thinks my 12% is better since it has the better time but in reality the 10% is better and should be shown instead at the top.

Thread: Controller profile error

Started by: FratRatFratRat

from my knowledge it should be as simple as copying the profile i uploaded to profiles folder then open ds4 windows and switch to the profile to enable the profile on that controller.

For those wondering what i had to do to setup the controls to line up correctly I'll write a guide shortly.

the reason PC version is separate from Console is due to codec scenes being skippable on PC and not on Console so time difference is major. Now as for making a separate category for emulator I don't have any issue with that this way each can have its own leaderboard.

Thread: PC Any% Route

Started by: 2916

pretty interesting but the question is, does the time loss having to work around the elevator in this way still out weigh the time gained from playing on pc with no delay in load times and faster codec calls? I know in all boss mode the difference is huge so it makes the run much faster in the end, but with all the backtracking needed for the stinger cause of the elevator being completely broken on pc version I'm not sure if this would truly produce a faster run or not would be interesting to test out though thanks for the information.

Started by: DrixqDrixq

it is because each ending has its own separate leaderboards so you can compete in other categories. Good enough explaination?

¤¤NOTE by default it shows the overall of both routes together, but using the filter options you can check out leaderboards by console ending and a few other options.¤¤

all valid points which is why i thought i'd bring it up figured between us all we could think of something.

Thread: Consideration For New Category

Started by: VideoGameRouletteVideoGameRoulette

I totally understand and agree with what your saying I'm just trying to point out that console times will never be as fast as PC for this category when the perfect console run just got beat by PC in one of the most casual runs I've ever seen so thought I'd point it out there.

2 Major Differences On PC vs Console
Skip Codec Calls 1 Button Push
No Load Times

so this mean effectively every codec calls gets PC players free saved time over any console run and this isn't seconds of time saved this can be up to a few minutes per codec call skipped depends on length of the codec call being skipped.

Thread: Consideration For New Category

Started by: VideoGameRouletteVideoGameRoulette

Hey guys thought I'd bring it up just because i finished watching the newest submission for All Bosses and couldn't help thinking that we might need a category just for PC players cause as hard as it was to watch the run he did complete the run in the time advertised, but i can't help feel like the PC version has an advantage over any console with codec calls being skippable and virtually no load times between cutscenes, so before we go accepting any more PC runs we have a decision to make do we accept the run and just leave the categories as is, or do we make a new category for All Bosses (Console) and All Bosses (PC) just to separate the PC from Console runs. What do you guys think any thoughts let me know down below and we'll make a decision on the process asap.

My opinion like twin snakes i think the PC version is just a little to much different from the console versions to allow it to complete along side the console times, but I'll let you guys decide how we approach this in the near future.

ya the elevator door gate is only present in the PC version of the game, PSX, PSP, and PS3 versions all work fine including integral editions of the game. Unfortunately any% isn't possible on PC only All Bosses.

Alright lets explain technically there would be 3 categories to this game, Large Skips(Any%), All Bosses(Low%), and 100%.

Any% or Large Skips consists of using glitches to skip major boss fights.
Low% or All Bosses means you'll have to fight each boss along the way.
100% would consist of obtaining all items and defeating all bosses (not including bandana or stealth)

considering nobody runs 100% and no major rules have been established at this time for the category we are left with just Low% and Any%.

Prior to Large Skips route being found all bosses was considered the any% of the game. Now with the new route in place Large Skips has taken as the Any% route, but to less confuse the MGS community it was called Large Skips instead of Any%. Now I do agree that consistency from game to game should be kept when it comes to categories this is just how they have been named for years and if we changed it now sure new runners would maybe understand more or less which route Any% should be considered, but for those who actually follow speedrunning this game it may confuse those few veterans.

I can confirm what Valient says about the Friday the 13th Leaderboards both of us hold the top 2 spots in the game and neither of us can get ahold of the only super mod in the thread. Also the only super mod of Friday the 13th hasn't even been on the site in over 1 month to add onto everything else Valient has already stated if that helps out in his case. If anyone deserves it he does, he's put more work into this game then some of the TASers out there and that is saying something!

Hello, I've been running Metal Gear Solid for about a month now and constantly running into the issue of runs not being verified its been 4 weeks since my last run has been verified, each new PB has been replaced by another in the time waiting for any of my runs to be verified I have messaged all mods of the game with not a single reply one of the mods hasn't even been on for 6 months the others have been on the site within the time frame of my PB's being submitted but none seem to verify any run anytime they jump online.

Above is the link to the leaderboards that needs moderation. I can help moderate these leaderboards if need be i'm very knowledgeable about the game and according to this submission video i'm currently 3rd in world for any% Large Skips.

I can also help fill in some of the guides and resources for this game as well to help populate the site with more content if need be cause there is a serious lack of content for this game and I'd like to help improve that.

Been awaiting verification of this run now for 3 days no luck getting in touch with any of the super mods of the game on twitch and 2 of them have been on the site recently without bothering to verify the run yet. I can understand not everyone has the time to verify a run every day, but if this is what I have to look forward to moving forward in submitting further runs of this game I'm gonna need a way to submit runs faster because how things look now if more people decide to run this game in the future this would be something to solve now before we have a gridlock of runs un-verified.
