Thread: Request leaderboard moderation

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hi, can I be made a mod of JackQuest https://www.speedrun.com/jackquest ? I submitted a run on 5 May 2020. Moderator hasn't logged into the site since 1 May there are currently no runs on the board. His YT link is not recognised and I tried messaging him on this site (plus request on discord) but no reply.

Ah, I didn't verify that one originally so I just presumed it was All Bears. I will DM him to see if he can re-upload the video.

Thread: Potential glitches and skips

Thanks for posting! The first two were known of but I have never seen the third, quite interesting.

Although there aren't many active runners, there is a discord that is a little active (hopefully it is linked on the sidebar on this leaderboard). It's always good to see another swordigo fan! I would recommend you give the Up to First Shard category a try to begin with if you are interested in doing runs.

This looks great! On reflection, I don't think corpseflesh or twyn are very active anymore unfortunately. If the softlock problem can be worked out it is free WR!

The best place to ask is probably the mobile speedrunning discord at https:/​/​discord.​gg/​ChbAzUA

If you don't want to join there, I can recommend a few if you let me know:

- whether you or on Android or iOS
- the preferred length of run
- the genres you are open to
- whether you will only consider free games or are willing to pay for games / IAP

Sounds good to me. Tbh, I only ran / became temp mod for this game for MSD comp a long while ago and probably don't have enough experience with it to sensibly carry on modding it, so it would make much more sense for you to do it!

I don't know about alive. I haven't played the game since my newer phone stopped being able to open the app properly.

Ask in the game's forum to be sure.

Thread: questions about game requesting

Started by: castertheblackcastertheblack

There are some credible speedgames on coolmathgames, if I were you I would submit the request but in 'Any additional notes' do you best to sell the game. For example, describe interesting mechanics, any neat speedrunning-friendly features (like IGT), if you know of any other people running / interested in running it, mention that etc. I think site mods have said before that, whilst there are guidelines for what will be accepted, each request is judged on its own merit, so it is worth a try.

Also, if the example run you submit is less than 5 minutes, but only because the whole game can be beaten that quickly, make it clear that your run is not only a portion of the game, but the whole game.

Thread: What motivates you to Speedrun?

Started by: [Deleted user]

My two cents - don't force it. If you don't feel motivated to pick up the grind again then don't. Wait for you to naturally get the interest back. Personally, every now and again I lose the will to run and just do something else. I've always eventually picked it back up again after a while.

Incidentally, I have emailed Brad to see if the IGT feature could get added to the mobile port. With luck he might do an update at some point.

Thread: Phone version

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Sorry to be a pain, but I had a couple of other requests in relation to the mobile category:

1. Loads times on mobile seem to vary massively so I think load times should be deducted. It's a pain I know and if you wanted help I am happy to do the calculations as and when runs are submitted, either by adding me as a mod or letting me know when a run comes in.

2. I have found the most convenient and precise triggers for the start and end of the run as well as the start and end of loads is when the white screen starts to wipe in and when it starts to wipe off ( example here https:/​/​tinyurl.​com/​tmzbsyy ). This also has the benefit of avoiding the need to calculate the first load time.

There have been some runs already (we have chosed this game as the bi-weekly mini comp we do in the mobile speedrunning discord) and I have calculated the times based on the above https:/​/​tinyurl.​com/​rjmencp . If you are happy to make these changes to the mobile subcat can you let me know and the runs can get submitted here?

Ta very much!

FPA World 1 is available on Android and iOS now ( https:/​/​play.​google.​com/​store/​apps/​details?id=air.​com.​BorneGames.​FPAWorld1&hl=en ; https:/​/​apps.​apple.​com/​gb/​app/​fancy-pants-adventures-world-1/​id1480775752 ). Having done a run, I think the phone version runs a lot faster plus some jumps seem possible on mobile but impossible on web (e.g. ~ 53s in vid). Mobile has load screens between levels too.

A new subcategory would be great if possible?

Hi. Please can Android and iOS platforms be added? I'm not sure if there are any differences in the versions and whether it would warrant a separate category, but I will try a run soon and find out.
