Hello everyone! This is a tutorial on setting up our automatic splitting and load removal tool for runs performed on Cxbx-reloaded (the fastest permitted Xbox emulator).

If you are playing on another platform, the autosplitter files included in the above tutorial's description may not support your setup. Reach out to us in the Barbie Speedrunning Discord for help!

If you are unable to use the autosplitter (or don't want to, no judgement), you can follow this tutorial for timing without loads using a video editing software:

Okay so what does someone who has played on actual hardware do? Seperate console from emulator boards otherwise there is a clear advantage for emulator which is never the right call in speedrunning

Hey Bregermann, I've updated the title of this thread to say "recommended" and I can also comment further on how this aims to make the playing field more fair in general. Currently, the autosplitter is only set up to do automatic load removal for this particular emulator. However, load removal is totally possible through frame timing in post on console, and if you're using direct capture (with an Elgato or similar) of your console to your PC, you can also make the automatic load remover work! I plan to make a tutorial on this at some point soon, but kkrider and I wanted to get the load remover out with a setup tutorial for emulator because it works. If you'd like to talk about it more, I'm happy to talk about it in the Barbie Speedrunning Discord (linked in the video's description on youtube)

i can see how the process of having to take out loads manually is definitely more tedious but its still possible. not everyone will be able to use the autosplitter but it doesnt actually make results any more different to someone who cant use it when all it does it automatically pause during loads, which is something you can do manually yourself live or cut out after the run it complete. theres a lot of speedruns that take out load times and whatever method someone uses to do it shouldnt matter, this is just an easier way to do it if its accessible to you. i think we're at the point where its been seen that taking out loads is probably the best route to go though.
