From my point of view. In theory, your run could be ruined by a misclick (reset button for example) even between the final hit and the fade out. Also, most games ends when it's not the game anymore and it's the ending screen/credits aka fade out.

But my most important argument about it is that it's MUCH easier to end a split on fade out than last hit when you need to highly focus on your movements/actions even if the final boss is "easy".

My only counter argument that I've not tested out would be that different versions could make the game different on that part but I doubt that it's an issue.

P.S. we could also discuss about having more categories than Any% but it would be on another post.

When I submit a run to a two players category (tested in Streets of Rage 1 and 4's leaderboard), I select "Player One" in the "You are" box and it fills the first box with my username which is fine. I input the 2nd player into the 2nd box and I fill everything normally but once it's submitted, the players are switched around so instead of Name 1 to Player 1 and Name 2 to Player 2, it is Name 2 to Player 1 and Name 1 to Player 2...

I don't know what triggers that but it doesn't seem to be a problem when I don't select myself in the "You are" box and just fill my username in the player 1's name's box.

I'll precise it again, you don't need to mention any completed runs submitted on the leaderboard since I'll take them all in consideration (or almost). Just give me some time 😛

Thread: ILs leaderboard

Started by: cestpatoucestpatou

@ckellyeditsckellyedits If you do an IL from Level Select, likewise from a run, I need to see it from the menu to the result screen displaying the IGT. Also if it's from a stream, obviously you need to highlight the run so it doesn't get lost after few weeks. But yes it would works and I would update your time on the specific place about it 🙂 You can also notice that someone did few ILs so far (one on hard and the other on mania?).

You can message me directly from this website or anywhere else that is linked in my profile if needed once you need to submit something that isnt a run you will submit to the "real" leaderboard of runs. I wont go through youtube and pick the best times from every video I find because it could get very quickly overwhelming but if some of the authors of those videos want to submit, I'll accept them.

@ArtelierArtelier yes, that's how I do but you don't need to do it since I also need to find the correct place in the video to link it which is at the result screen of each stage. It would save me only 15s if you do it so no big deal on this haha!

@Neromustdie1Neromustdie1 Give the verifiers a little bit of time, you know that the board have been released yesterday so there's a lot of runs submitted and we also have life. It can take up to 3-4 weeks to validate a run if we want to but that's why we are 4, to accelerate the process. Have a little bit of patience, we will do it 🙂

About having everything, as long as youre fine having a lot in misc, why the f not? Also, if you quote the past 3 games' boards to make this one the same, well... The other games had three to five characters so it was much easier. Also, don't ever quote me SoR3 board with almost half the board empty XD

On another note, a speedrun is all about completing the game the fastest and there's other boards that do it like that. If you prefer the term, it's technically "Any%". Also, if you look at SoR1, Axel is DEFINITELY worse than Blaze but there's noone, not even me, that can prove it in a run on easy.

So up to you guys, you prefer to have everything but in misc or having it this way, where a speedrun of a game should be? I just categorically refuse to have a board like the other SoR games that there's everything but it is a mess and ugly. Up to you guys

Hey! About the categories, you'll see them in 2 days or so when they will be released by the moderator Sm_Izumi. But yeah, there will be categories per difficulty and you'll be able to play any character you want as well so they will all be included.

About the discord idea, there's already the official SoR4 discord done by the creators (?) and a fan based one done by Mr. Din called Brawlers Avenue so take which you prefer but if you only want to discuss about SoR4, I suggest the first one.

About PBs, you'll see soon enough once the board will be up 🙂 Keep practicing/running and I hope to see you soon on the board!

Thread: Important before submissions

Started by: Sm_IzumiSm_Izumi

For me, the board would be Arcade solo, arcade coop(2p), boss rush solo, boss rush coop (2p) and it will be timed with IGT since we dont have the same loading speed and theres a timer already for that... For Story mode (1p and 2p), we could put it in Misc and if people really want it and submit, put it on the "real board". Also, sub-categories would be difficulties and variables (and not sub-sub-categories) would be the character Axel, Blaze, Cherry, Floyd, Adam, SoR1 char, SoR2 char, SoR3 char just like on River City Girls leaderboard ( speedrun.com/river_city_girls ) or Golden Axe Beginner ( speedrun.com/golden_axe#Beginner1 ). You can already filter by variables you want so if you want the WR with Floyd, just be first with Floyd even if its 6th on the leaderboard overall. if you want the "real WR", play the best character. Also, it will be a much MUCH better looking leaderboard than the messes of SoR1,2,3...

@PikachuPikachu I dont feel that theres any need for mods, only verifiers.

@codetakucodetaku I think that low% is out of the question because if you want to settle that up, it's technically no food, no weapons used no special attack (star move)... At that point, why not one handed, blindfolded, etc. You can come up with so many categories just to satisfy few "achievements". Also, it can be easily achieved on low difficulties but nobody in their right mind would do it on top difficulties.

Besides, if anybody wants to do ILs leaderboard, I can do an excel spreadsheet and record everything difficulty wise, character wise, etc. and put it here so people could compete for that as well.

Thread: Turbo?

Turbo is not allowed on this game. You can use it to train on some part to know what to do, how to do something but you should never use turbo in a run.

Thread: Console Separation Update

Started by: Sm_IzumiSm_Izumi

(edited: )

It is proven that the difference console VS Emulator is "huge" enough to separate them and it SHOULD be separated to be fair to everyone. Yes, runs wont be much affected by that difference since NO runs atm are so good that few seconds makes a difference on WR time or not, but thats not the point.

To add to this, it was removed before due of making the leaderboard looking better despite reducing chances to the console players to WR and I think that it was done by Galedog out of nowhere on top of that if I recall right. (I'll edit if I'm wrong) So, naturally, it was just a question of time until it would have gone back.

Besides, @AnthopantsAnthopants, if you think that it's the worst, bring some of your reasons/ideas to make the discussion go forward. I would be happy to see a healthy discussion about the topic. I agree that the changes over the past few years looked mostly unexpected and without discussions/reasoning but Izumi/Galedog could discuss more about the reasoning for those changes of the past and/or right now if needed 🙂

Have a good rest of your day and enjoy debating 🙂

EDIT 1: It could also be discussed on the discord server OR in private if needed 😛

Thread: City Hall

Started by: cestpatoucestpatou

(edited: )

There has been only 3 categories of City Hall on 26 possible that have runs in them and it has been roughly 9 MONTHS. Should we/you consider removing them? You have tested it and it was not concluding at all. You don't have to since there's still "interests" in it but I think the results are showing a lack of interest... We had plenty of runners that didnt wanted to get into it or just play it casually so no need for a speedrun board for it.

I've started this to open the discussion about this matter. We could also discuss about the misc category that got almost no runners but there's some that have still few (1-3) so it is "fine".

EDIT: I also put this here because it is clearer and more forward to NOT have City Hall if not needed mainly for newcomers (if there will be any).

Thread: Categories - console

Started by: cestpatoucestpatou

Hello everyone,

I've added few subcategories to also have Genesis on this leaderboard instead of separating both of them. There's few but important differences between the versions so that's why I haven't just let it stay as characteristic but transfered that to a subcategory.

If you have any questions or comments toward that, feel free to comment here.

P.S. Two major differences between the consoles are :

1- Time between end of fight and start of fight are different due of blood disappearing on Genesis that isn't present on SNES.

2- Different damage dealt with the same move on every moves

Started by: cestpatoucestpatou

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if you guys are able to watch his run because I would like to know how he does vs me and where he saves so much time. I know that the TAS is like 14 minutes but if we can't access his video anymore, it's like that he has no proof anymore ^^" And his run was verified by someone that is not a moderator anymore so yeah, I was wondering if I'm the only one in this situation

Thread: Midknight Question

Started by: PMniacPMniac

Sorry I was a little busy lately. So I have tried it and yeah its difficult to trigger that. Mainly because if you dont hit "Forward", its the bedazzle move that you do and if you arent precise in those 3 buttons (X,Y,Z), you will throw the enemy. But I've been able to put the move out like 2 times in 25 tries.

On another note, in a speedrun, I doubt that it's the way to go 😛

About that, I've already done a guide about it that you can find on this website or youtube. Or you can look at my streams when I'm online and I could show you how or you can also DM in discord and could do a private session about it. You can also find a way yourself XD Anyway I think the topic gets slightly off and its pretty much done now 🙂

Thread: Defacto run?

Started by: 40wattrange40wattrange

The game starts on normal with Adam (left character) preselected so it could be that.
If you want to consider the popularity, it would be Blaze Easy.
If you want to consider the most challenging speedrun to beat 1st place, Blaze Hardest.
If you want the most difficult run, Axel or Adam Hardest.

Basically, on a very high skill level, Blaze and Axel are roughly the same. On a beginner level, Blaze is better. On an intermediate level, Axel is better and Adam is bad at every level XD

If you want to be more precise about your question, I could answer better.

My personnal favorite is blaze easy since its very casual
