Thread: speedrunning mod rules

Started by: nasupernasuper

Usually, it's only necessary when in-game chat shows that some player is using mods as it is the only moment when we can realize that someone is using them. Still, to make a run "100% legit" it'd be nice to reassure that no players have mods installed, even though they are not displayed in the chat.

So fyi, this isn't our job as it's obviously not paid. We are moderators because we love the game and we've spent hours running it. Take into account that it's summer, we have lifes, we go on holidays, we spend time with friends, etcetera. Your runs are not going to disappear so stop getting that nervous and be a little bit more patient. WE WILL VERIFY THEM.

-Yours faithfully, moderators.

No, that does not count as a glitch. And no, for the moment holdout is not a speedrun category.

Started by: JoostagramJoostagram

There seems to have been some issues with runs not showing in your own profile but they showing in our verification list, so don't worry about it, other runners also reported the issue.

Thread: Speedrunning Mod

Started by: davidwiki8davidwiki8

The only allowed mod for runs is Speedrunning mod, no matter the purpose of the other mods. And also, Speedrunning mod is compulsory for all PC runners.

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

I recently requested that some inactive moderators were removed from Payday 2 leaderboards. Now, I'm requesting to be made super mod for PAYDAY game series https://www.speedrun.com/payday as the two mods there @Lavender_cobra (Last online 1 year ago) and @Cpt_Falconator (Last online 8 months ago) are inactive and I don't have any way to contact them. If possible I would also like them to be removed as mods for the series. Thanks in advance!

@Dangerless, @CommanderCH replied when I contacted him and already removed himself from Super Mod. However, I don't have any way to contact @Lavender_cobra or @mnbmnb336. Therefore, for the reasons I posted previously I would like them to be removed as Super Mods of Payday 2 (https://www.speedrun.com/pd2).

Hi, I would like to remove some super mods from Payday 2 (https://www.speedrun.com/pd2) as they have inactive for quite a long and didn't get really involved in the game.

We've spoken about this many times. To do that category, we are waiting until overkill confirms that there will be no more new heists.

You'd have to specifically ask the runners to see if they uploaded other player's pov.

Thread: Speedrunning Mod

Started by: davidwiki8davidwiki8

After carrying out a survey about the use of RNG mods on the PAYDAY 2 Speedrunning Discord server (which you should join if you are interested in running the game, check the sidebar), and taking into account all your opinions, we’ve decided to create a specific Speedrunning mod based on the RNG modifier mod originally developed by Dr_Newbie. Znix included all the changes needed to adapt it for speedrunning. We hope this huge change can help to develop the game further and get even more runs submitted, as it reduces the time spent to get nice runs. Nonetheless, it also means that some changes need to be done to the leaderboards. We will try to explain everything here (prepare for a long but hopefully worth long read):

The idea was to make the mod completely optional to those runners not willing to reset thousands of times. But ZNix helped us to make sure nobody was cheating by adding a feature which is basically a mod list on the top right of the screen. For that reason, as we want to keep the runs fair for everyone and to make sure no one is using mods of any kind, ALL RUNS NEED TO HAVE SPEEDRUNNING MOD INSTALLED , even if the rng is not being modified.

The download for the mod can be found in the Resources tab. It will take you to a Google Drive folder which contains the Speedrunning mod, and a text file with both the info you need to install the mod and the features it comes with. (You can read the file online, and it’s really advised).

We have developed a ruleset regarding the mod, hoping to control the use of it so that it’s only a way of saving the time you would spend resetting and doesn’t mean a real advantage over whoever decides not to use it:

• Speedrunning mod must be used in every run, either individual levels and full game runs.

• Only the Speedrunning mod and SuperBLT (required for the mod) are allowed. NO OTHER MODS ARE ALLOWED. The Speedrunning mod features a list of mods installed. If anything else appears on that list, YOUR RUN WILL BE REJECTED.

• The mod comes with an updated in-game timer, featuring hundredths. That timer is ONLY INDICATIVE. When submitting a run, submit the time displayed on the crew stats as we have been always doing.

• You are allowed to change your RNG settings between days. However you must restart the heist for the new settings to be applied, so you will have to restart IN THE PREPLANNING SCREEN. If you restart during gameplay, the time displayed on the in-game timer will be added to your final time.

• Your RNG settings must be possible when playing vanilla. IF YOU USE AN IMPOSSIBLE RNG SETTING ON VANILLA, YOUR RUN WILL BE REJECTED.

• Changing RNG with the mod is only allowed in individual levels and not in Crime Spree nor Contractor% . However, the mod automatically prevents the RNG from being changed in this gamemode, so you need to keep the mod installed when running this category.

• If another player (that is not the host) is using mods, at the end of the heist, you must show which mods are they using at the player list. Still, only speedrunning mod is allowed.

For any questions , help, or concerns regarding the mod or anything, feel free to leave a message here and we’ll try to answer asap. Thanks for reading and good luck (you won’t need it anymore LUL) with your runs!

Thread: how does removing load times work

Started by: ZeffnZeffn

Brief explaination: You'll have to use a pointer scanner to find out the addresses of the loading screens with cheat engine. Then create a .asl document where you program that the timer must stop when those addresses are detected.
Good luck with it.

Started by: DJLennardDJLennard

Well, I think this is like the other categories that have been proposed. Until PD2 support is over, no more categories will be added and the final leaderboards will be made. And NO MODS! (JK)
Anyway, you might want to join the discord server and speak about this there, it's easier for everyone.
