Thread: Voting for a 2nd Moderator

Started by: desa3579desa3579

With Cheat% being part of the speedrun.com Leaderboards now we need moderators for this page. We think that two moderators should be perfectly capable of handling the newly created Leaderboards, one of which is going to be myself just to have someone from the already existing moderation team watching over these boards. As for the second person we'd like everyone of you to vote who you think would be fitting to fill out this role. As per usual, we'll be giving a few days for people to put themselves forward as potential moderators followed up by a voting of those who are interested in becoming a moderator. Just answer to this thread with one or two sentences (As long as it is short) on why you think you would fit as a moderator. These little summaries haven't been done in the past, but with Cheat% being a fairly small community compared to the rest it is a good way of being able to judge who would be a good fit as a moderator for those who vote.
The deadline for applying yourself as a potential moderator will be September 4th, 23:59 CEST. Afterwards you'll have another 3-4 days to vote. The amount of votes available will be judged by how many people apply themselves.

Sincerely
The KH Moderation Team

Do you have any questions you wanted to ask for this specifically or did you just open up a Forum post to announce that?

Stop the timing after clearing the final objective, so:
Final Trinity
Final Puppies/Returning the Puppies
Final Keyblade
Final Boss (Ansem IV most likely)

Thread: Category Extension Rules

Started by: desa3579desa3579

Hello everyone,

As of right now we have a few "Full game runs" included in the category extensions. These are
All Trinities
All Puppies
All Keyblades
All Bosses
The current ruleset says that obtaining the last required piece/completing the last objective is when the timer ends, but recently there has been the idea about changing this to beating the Ansem IV. This would affect these categories heavily so we wanted to have this potential re-ruling up for debate, do you want runs to end on the final objective or when you beat Ansem IV?
Keep in mind that the board (Including pending runs) currently hosts most runs with the "Final Objective" rule and 1-2 runs that follow the "Final Boss" rule. The boards will be adjusted and either pack of runs will be removed from the boards as a result. Please make sure that whatever you vote on does not get influenced by the fact that runs will be deleted, so please make sure to not choose the "Final Objective" rule just because more runs would get deleted than if you would choose the "Final Boss" rule. Go with whatever you feel makes more sense for these categories.
You can now vote by upvoting one of the following possibilities. Make sure to only vote for one possibility and make sure that you are or have been a runner of KH/KHFM. Not following either of the rules runs the respective vote to be invalid and will not be counted towards the total.

Oh I was talking about you doing a run yourself^^
To show that you truly are interested rather than just thinking of the idea being nice

You probably got the biggest chances of success for a new category if you show your interest on that with an already existing run.

I just know from a lot of other speedgames (Especially pokemon) that consoles are usually afster than the legal emulators.

Just out of curiosity: How come almost everyone is running this game on emulator? Are emulators that are faster than console allowed for this?

It depends on the route you're using, but you can probably get good times with that setup already.

Thread: Load Remover vs RTA Timing

Started by: TheScruffingtonTheScruffington

That's correct. The way it has been handled now is that the consoles are split now into Pro and Base. We figured that splitting it even further would clutter it up to much (Especially with a definite PC port in the future) so we decided that if you are really dedicated into coming out on top it seems to be a reasonable investement as you can usually get them for 50-70 €/$/whatever you use.
We do have filters at least for HDD and SSD. It's obviously not the same representation, but it's better than nothing.

No, the Ps4 Pro is a lot faster than the Base PS4 is. You can see that if you watch the demo speedruns.

The difference to games like Celeste and Carance of Hyrule is that the IGT in this game is RTA. It counts during loads.
It also stops when you are idle in a menu.

You can not go around that unfortunately. The only ways to avoid that without a capture card is
1: Using Remote Play
2: Pointing a webcam at your gameplay for the final Chapter and have it visible at all times during it.

Otherwise you can not submit your runs to the board which is really really unfortunate.

Thread: Add plat trophy category?

Started by: RedeemedRikuRedeemedRiku

Nobody has ran it before which is why it's not on the boards. By the way we handeld the other boards, if you have a run for it it could probably be put on the boards, but that's up to the mods
It's better if we have a run already instead of adding an empty category

Yes, there is a playlist that showcases all these runs right here:

I still have to update it with a few runs, but later tonight all runs will be included.

If we have the OC version it will be it's own category with it's own Timing method (most likely) as the games memory can just be read. That procedure makes it 100% accurate.
There is nothing we're delaying by doing that.

Thread: Load Remover vs RTA Timing

Started by: TheScruffingtonTheScruffington

I myself would be fine with going both ways. But I'd tend for RTA. I'll explain both right here:

RTA: With RTA it would be a lot easier to handle for everyone. It's more convenient, we do not have to worry about timer inconsistencies and theoretically the whole game could be ran without a timer as from what I heard beating the game shows you your IGT which perfectly represents your RTA time. That way splicing could be prevented as well as the length of the video/a retiming of the run would be backed by the RTA timer. Retiming the runs would be long as well and we can probably expect to have a lot of runners. No matter how many moderators would be present, we can reasonably only retime up to 1 run per day if we were to do it very accurately.
The only problem is the hardware difference, however my idea would be to at least split Pro and Base to let people be competitive. It would not be fair to require people doing a up to 400$/€ investment to be competitive looking at it realistically it will take no longer than 1-2 weeks until Base Runners can not reasonably catch up anymore. A harddrive investment isn't as big as decent SSDs can easily be bought for 50-60$/€, but that way we'd have it split into two consoles and can keep it competitive for a huge majority of runners.

Loadless: Going Loadless opens up different possibilities, but also causes some problems.
The biggest one is that once we get a lot of run submissions, which would be foolish to not expect that, we will have a gigantic backlog no matter the amount of moderators we have. To prevent that, we'd have to be able to get a perfect loadremover that cause no issue whatsoever.
However Loadless would allow us to keep competition on one board for every single runner. Everyone would be on the same playing field, has the same chances for WR and we'd have Base+HDD competing with Pro+SSD.
That's about as much positives as I can come up with personally though. Thank you for reading, I'll edit this message if I can think of more.
