Thread: I just published an Interactive Dread map

Started by: chriscchrisc

I linked the teleportals as per @SpifferstheGrand's recommendation. I updated the I also added ShinyZeni's 1.0.3 world record... which was beat before I even published it. Unfortunately it takes about as long to add a run as it does to watch one, so until I figure out how to streamline it (or figure out a machine learning solution) I'm going to have to limit myself to adding one run a week.

I'm putting dread on hold for a week to add some SM rom hack maps and then I'm going to focus on adding some arrows to show the routes.

Thank you for the feedback and encouragement.

I made an interactive map that I hope some of you may find useful. Right now if you click on an item then click the time it links to a casual 100% run (no sequence breaks), an Any% speedrun, and a 100% speedrun.

I tried to add arrows to show the route taken but it didn't look good since I've only recorded item/boss times and not the actual path taken. If I learn some machine vision I can rip that data directly from the videos, but I'd have to learn a lot of new programming tricks to do that. I'm guessing people in the auto-splitter community might already have something similar to that so if someone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

I don't know if this is useful enough to be added to the resources tab or not. I'm mostly posting it here to get an idea what changes I could make to turn this into a useful planning tool or even just a visualizer. I think it'd be really fun to have it display the youtube video on the map itself so you could watch it zoom across the world, but like I said, machine vision is currently outside my skill set.

But enough rambling. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for reading!
