Thread: Free 2 Play Games that can be speedrun

Started by: RexyIsLiveRexyIsLive

Mobile is a good platform for F2P. There are loads of games I could recommend including Cat Bird, Swordigo, Data Wing, Speed Run 2, Super Bear Adventure, Sword of Xolan.. If you are interested, let me know what kind of game / run you like and whether you are on Android or iOS

Thread: Re-worded advice for new speedrunners (from a newbie)

Started by: BestFriendBestFriend

In regard to the OP, I think it is great advice. I would only add that if you are new to this and feeling down because the WR for a run you are attempting seems so far beyond your ability levels, you will be amazed what you will become capable of with enough practice (and the best practice is getting things wrong).

Thread: getting into running/routing/glitch hunting

Started by: vuanendientuvuanendientu

Sounds like you have already got two really good options in mind but if you did want to try out some runs on android then you'll find lots of suggestions at https:/​/​discordapp.​com/​invite/​F2fJjUg

My personal (and shamelessly selfish) recommendations if you wanted a mobile run and like glitch hunting would be:
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​aralon_sword_and_shadow#Any
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​aralon_forge_and_flame
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​dungeon_x_dungeon#Any (I know there is a wrong warp but haven't figured it out)

Icky, I think you misread emeraldaly's post. He was laughing / sobbing because a lot of his games (like mine) have almost no runners, let alone 30+. He wasn't mocking the OP at all, if anything it was self-deprecating.

Also "calling someone an asshole isn't personal".... ok

Thread: IL start time

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Cool, thanks. I'll play around with it and if I find anything I'll let you know.

Yeah, the loads are annoying. I also fear load times may differ between devices meaning, short of subtracting loads (which would be a massive ball ache) slower devices will be disadvantaged.

Thread: IL start time

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Cheers! I have only done recorded runs of the first three missions so far but will work my way through all of them and then may be tackle full game.

Off topic, it feels like there should be some out of bounds or skips to find due to the number of border objects, but I haven't yet discovered anything. Have you experienced anything during gameplay that might be promising?

Thread: IL start time

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Hey LMI! I've done one or two IL runs and presumed start frame would be on 'tap to continue' (after the level has loaded) as load times may vary across devices. Example:

Would it be possible to adjust the rules, or do you want to keep it as it is?

Thread: Speedrunning a game without playing through it casually

Started by: emeraldalyemeraldaly

Yeah it is kinda sad when I think about it. I used to love just stumbling through a game blind (I must have sunk 300+ hours into skyrim including probably 10+ hours crafting spoons), but I've since become obsessed by the speedrun mentality.

Thread: Speedrunning a game without playing through it casually

Started by: emeraldalyemeraldaly

I haven't played a game casually for 3 years except for games without any existing runs already, where I play through it normally but merely to work out what the route should be (so not strictly 'casually'). I don't know if I'm capable of enjoying a game casually anymore.

The final boss in Shadowgun is crying out for a nickname. Any suggestions?

He reminds me of a celebrity but I can't for the life of me think who it is. There's a touch of William Dafoe..
