I have found a couple of time saves and posted a sub-3. It can be beaten, there must be at least a couple more places to optimise.

The answer to the advert problem is to switch off wifi and mobile data on your phone / tablet. Can't believe I didn't think of it before. Certainly works on this game and I will try doing that on other mobile games that I run.

On that topic, mobile gaming is sorely under-represented in speedrunning, so good to have another mobile runner around and hope you give other runs a try Yam!

Thanks Joeeigel. I am the only mod of most of the games in question (largely because most of them are uncontested at the moment) so guess I will carry on until another runner objects!

Thread: Adverts in runs

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

I run mostly Android games. Many have adverts annoyingly interrupting play and whilst some games allow you to purchase removal of ads, a lot don't.

For those that don't allow ad removal, I trim out the ads and post the edited video to youtube / this site and use the edited video for the purpose of timing the run.

Alternatively, I could post the run including ads so that anyone can verify that only advert has been removed and that no advantage was gained in editing. It would however mean anyone watching the run had to sit through an advert.

Presumably, removing the ads from the video before posting is acceptable?

YamCider - Good run. I'll try and improve my time with a bit more risk taking and see if I can wrestle back the WR!

I note you need to eliminate ads. I trimmed out the advert from my run using youtube editor (think you can see the flicker where I did that at about 1:18 on my 3:16 video). Happy for you to do the same or to keep current video and discount ad time if you prefer (which would make your run about 3:11 I guess or thereabouts).

If instead you would rather use videos including ads for verification purposes (counting out the advert time) I am happy to do that, let me know. I have made you a mod in any case.

Hi Guesst

Love the game and thinking of doing some IL runs, or perhaps a full game / chaps 1-3 run.

Can you let me know how you get such precise timings for the level runs? Is there a program you use?

Hi. Please can be added as a mod for Swordigo (http://www.speedrun.com/Swordigo)?

My any% run has been awaiting verification for 27 days and an earlier slower run from over a month ago was not verified. I Twitch PM'd both mods on 18 December and posted on the forum 2 days ago but have received no reply. I have no other way of contacting them.

MarcoDTL has not been on the site for a month and alfredodevars has not been on the site for 8 months.

Thread: Coin doubler used?

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Hi there.

I am thinking of trying a run of this game.

I know rules say no real money allowed but to get rid of the ads I need to purchase the ad-free add-on, and a coin doubler comes with that.

Are your times with the coin doubler, or without it?

Sounds like a really good time, getting much closer to the 2 hour mark. The easiest way of recording this game if you are playing on your phone is with a screen recorded app. The YouTube one works really well but there are lots of others available.

Thread: o last thing before i restart my run

Started by: GeyLordRobinsonGeyLordRobinson

I don't think it shows all the time as my pb save file is shorter than actual time plus it does show tutorial time (not included in speedrun). However, the difference was very small (around 1 minute by end of game) so save file is a decent representation of your pace.

I feel your pain on the last boss, his attacks are devastating.

However please if possible combine the recordings into one flv so that the whole run can be shown in one video. Youtube editor allows you to do this easily.

Hi, I don't object to spreading the run over multiple recording sessions - I have to do it that way as I cannot find the time to do it all in one sitting. You sound like you're on a very good pace.

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Cheers, I have looked through youtube and existing runs, but on current patch runs there are no real glitches / skips recorded at the moment. I am sure there are some to find as it is a pretty buggy game, but there is not a big speedrunning community for it.

I am running Lords of the Fallen. The game was renowned for glitches and bugs but few of them are actually useful (apart from an early tutorial glitch, which was patched out a while ago).

I have found some oob glitches which I can replicate, but they do not save any/ much time.

Has anyone found any glitches/skips that might be useful?
