Suggestions for Runners

Recording Devices/Software
OBS Recording/Streaming Software
Elgato Recording/Streaming Capture Card

Upload/Streaming Platforms
Youtube, Twitch, dlive
(save your VoD so that the video won't be automatically deleted in the future)

Recording/Streaming Settings
Each user will have a different setup and you must plan accordingly by having the correct settings
If you have a lower end PC use a lower resolution, bit-rate, and FPS (in-game if possible and in the recording/streaming software) to circumvent laggy or poor quality video

Adobe Premiere Pro with the correct export settings

LiveSplit or XNoteStopWatch for a rough estimate or timer overlay
For an accurate timer use a Time-code script in Premiere Pro for a clean and customizable timer
(tutorial coming soon)

Hi. Just wanted to ask which Gobblegums are not allowed for runs. I've submitted a few runs but got denied (But also verified?) due to using Power Vacuum. Just want to know so i don't fug up 😛 Thank you.

Go by each games/categories rules. Power Vacuum was recently banned.

Since my post was cited here. My position was primarily addressing "joke runs", and possibly "afk player(s)" The rest of the items mentioned here are the moderators' current discretion, which I don't necessarily totally agree or disagree with.

What if a run is the highest quality you can make it, but isn't up to the standards. Will it still be accepted?

@PixelsPixels We generally accept any runs that are in the range of decent to great quality. If the video is skipping/cuts etc. we will not verify it. Specifically though we'd have to see the run in question and go from there.
