Leaderboard suggestions

Sweden

Hey. I've just got some suggestions for things that could make the leaderboard a little better.

  1. Adding a wallpaper. I've put a few wallpapers that could fit well in a link at the end, so see if you like any of them. I personally think the 1st and 2nd one looks best.

  2. The rules says "Timer starts when you press A to confirm the new game", but on PC you don't have A to confirm. So maybe change it to "Timer starts when you confirm a new game" or something like that.

  3. The rules for Brutal categories does not include that it have to be played on Brutal difficulty, so it would be good to add this. Also, for the PC categories you should add that it has to be played on PC as well.

  4. I noticed that TheCaptainStream's Any% Brutal run is not in the "Any % PC" category, so that should be fixed.

  5. I've also made some ranking icons for the leaderboard, which might fit in nicely. There are two different variations, so try them out and see which fits best. If they need more improvement, let me know and I can try fix it.

Thanks did the changes and added the icons and wallpaper. I'm curious how did you find about the game?

Sweden

Well, I was looking around on Steam for a new game to play and potentially speedrun. Eventually I found Dark Sector, which sounded and looked cool, so I bought it. That's pretty much it :)

Nice, and someone posted about looking for glitches. If you find any that would be great.

Oh Ico since you can do photoshop would you mind doing the speedrun.com logo in the game's font and style? I imagine something like this speedRun.com

Sweden

Sure, I could try doing a logo. I've just not been able to find the font that Dark Sector is using. I can try looking for a similar font and see if it looks any good. Though if you would find the game's font, or any other good ones you want me to try, just let me know.

Alright, also I tried to message you on Twitter and Twitch, but you don't seem to be active there. It's hard to communicate with you and it doesn't help with discord you only put your name and not your ID number.

Sweden

I’m sorry for not responding, I didn’t notice it. :( I fixed my discord name now, which should be correct. Regarding your question about negative time start for console, could you explain a little what it means?

Exactly as it is said, timer starts normally except in the negative and becoming positive as the game truly starts. It's different for everyone so it's best to find out what your time will be thru trial and error.

I bring it up because console is terrible with loads compared to PC. There is a workaround for a better start and that's watching the starting game cutscene when you load the game. For whatever reason this makes the game start in less than 10 seconds.

I agree that the start should be more fair, and having a negative time start seems fine for console runners. If you feel that it’s a good thing to have, then sure, use it. As long as PC keeps the same timing I’m fine with it.

Though another option if we want a consistent and easy way of timing, is to just say that the timer starts when you gain control of the character. I’m fine with either.

Alright sounds good, due to how fast the game starts when you skip the cutscene I like doing a negative timer that will start positive when I take control of him.

Sweden

I just finished creating a speedrun logo with a fitting font, that I think looks good. There are two versions, so see which one you like the best. If they need further improvements, just let me know and I'll try fix it. :)

I like the third one, but needs to be a little bolder. Other than that it's nice and thanks, much appreciated :)

On the note of the timing rule change I think what's fair is after starting the game you start the timer on the second cutscene skip.

Sweden

I'm glad you like it! I just added a little bolder logo in the link above, so see if that's enough or if it needs even more. Also, I completely agree on that timing rule change, it sounds great and is fair for everyone.
