The Analgesic Productions Discord server has a channel in it for speedrunning - at the moment the discussion is largely about Even the Ocean, but it's for all Analgesic games, so Anodyne would fit there, too! I added it to the leaderboard sidebar for Even the Ocean, and I think it would be great to add it here as well, if you wanted to. Here's an invite link: https://discord.gg/34KpJ9g
hi! glad to see a leaderboard for this game has been made. i want to be an active participant in setting this game's community up and figuring out the leaderboard management, strats, routing etc. etc. so i made a discord server for Woten speedrunning! https://discord.gg/DkkpsRv
i thought it would be the best place to talk about things moving forward. hope to see you there! thanks ^^

hi! i was thinking of running this game and it's nice that there are others who are interested in it.
i have a similar question about input methods - i was thinking of using a gamepad-to-touchscreen input mapper (which requires root) to use a controller instead of touch. i do think that helps out, just due to having physical buttons instead of a flat surface with no response. what are your thoughts on that? i would have been inclined to allow alternate input methods (maybe with an added leaderboard column to disclose what's being used), but maybe that's just for my own personal gain. now i know that there are others interested, what are your thoughts on it? i'm able to use regular touch input if it's decided that other input methods are banned, although i do think it would be nice to have physical buttons to press. knowing that that's not natively supported by the game is what makes me hesitate.
i also have some root software that allows me to stream my phone's screen to OBS, so i'd be using that with LiveSplit as if running on any other platform. i assume that would be allowed?
edit: btw, how about a discord for this game? i can get that set up. i know it's a small community, but i feel like it's easier than the SRC forums.
edit 2: this is what i use to stream my phone to OBS: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobzapp.screenstream (root only required for audio)
this is what i use to map inputs to a controller: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.catalyst06.gc2tpro
i have left, right and jump set up on the dpad/left stick and A, as well as start to pause and select to press level 1 to start a run. obviously i feel that autofire/double-mapping that gives extra features ought to be banned, but other than that, the only upside to this is having physical buttons. i think it helps my gameplay a bit; noticably, although not a massive improvement. can still play the game just fine with raw touch.
