Hi, we don't allow this for runs currently, but of course you could still use it for practice at least. If you need a new copy of the game you can still pick it up pretty cheaply, if you want to know which versions have Citadel Skip before you buy it then check this link: https://wiki.jakspeedruns.com/PS2_Version_Check or ask in the discord 🙂

Probably should be removed. I'm happy with my times that used it being removed.

Just to add to this I don't think The Whorleater is beatable either (on either difficulty) due to the changes made to it in 5.0 (though one day gear will catch up and make it beatable again once you do enough damage in one hit to skip the last invuln).

Thread: Skipping Krew fight

Started by: baterbater

Wow that's crazy! I definitely believe you given that you described it exactly as we understand it. The only real lead we have is that we can kind of replicate the effect on emulator by locking him in place so that his animations don't work properly. It may be something to do with him getting knocked in a certain way or something along those lines. To know that it can happen right at the start of the fight is super interesting as that would save even more time than the known ways it can happen and may be possible to set up.

Do you know whether it was your first attempt at Krew or you died a bunch of times to him first? I ask because enemy behaviour can change a bit after multiple deaths.

Thread: Report a site bug

Started by: ZephilesZephiles

We have a weird bug where the site tries to convert the word "number" to an emoji in the rules of Jak 1 No LTS. I have been unable to fix this. Is an administrator able to have a look at this?

This appears differently depending on the browser (it's pretty obnoxious in chrome, for example) but is of course visible in the source code if it isn't visible on the one you use.

Hi,

I believe it would be beneficial for people with the "verifier" role to be able to edit times before verifying them as people often have a late or early split at the start or end of their run and the time has to be corrected - this is frustrating for verifiers. Is there any possibility of this being allowed?

Thread: Negative times

Started by: blahpyblahpy

RTA timing would mean ignoring the actual objectives of the race and playing it identically to a time trial. Perhaps it is just not fit for this site until high scores are implemented.

Thread: Negative times

Started by: blahpyblahpy

Sorry, I should explain since you all seem to be misunderstanding. This isn't messing with the IGT. The IGT is working as intended. It's a type of race that is behaving as intended, for example Freeze Rally mode in Jak X and Relic Race in Crash Team Racing. In both games collecting items in these races freezes the timer for a couple seconds (this is intended!) and then at the end if you managed to collect every single item it also deducts 10 seconds from your finishing time (this is also an intended mechanic!). This means that if you managed to race fast enough while collecting items constantly you can actually finish with a negative time!

Some games (especially racing games) have ILs where you can freeze and deduct time during the race by collecting items. In those games it is often possible on some ILs to end up with a negative time as a result. Is there any possibility of this being implemented?

If I may suggest, something like a "negative time" checkbox would work perfectly.

Wait until it is released and then we will decide.

For reference this forum isn't used a lot, if you have discord most of the discussion is there, there is a stick in each game's forum with the link

Thread: 0 milliseconds

Started by: blahpyblahpy

Hi! Someone in an IL for a game I moderate the leaderboards of set a time which had exactly 0 milliseconds. Is there a way to make it show as 0m 14s 000ms on the leaderboards or can it only be shown as 0m 14s?

This thread will record players' times for categories of Jak 1 that aren't on the main leaderboards. To get a category added on here just post your PB (don't get too silly though).

Thread: Looking into learning Jak II

Started by: synchronizedrapturesynchronizedrapture

Hey there, first off I suggest joining our discord server (https://discord.gg/HUzXuNn) as there are a lot of very helpful people there 🙂

You can run on either PS2 or PS3, technically PS3 is faster in load times but it's also more annoying because of the punch glitch. Everyone who runs Jak 2 plays on PS2.

We don't mind giving explanations if there are specific things you are struggling with, I'd suggest watching the world record speedrun and seeing how far you can follow it along 🙂
