Thread: Phone version

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.

Thread: Added categories

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

ItzSlaY requested I add a 100% category, and I also see that in early 2019 a new 'pro' difficulty was added to career mode.

I have amended the leaderboards accordingly. I have moved all existing full game runs to 'Amateur / Any%' because, as far as I know, the previous career mode is equivalent to the current amateur league, but I haven't played the game enough recently to be certain. If anyone notices that current amateur league career is materially different to the 'old' career mode, please let me know.

Actually, having re-read your post, I think you might have just got the first piece of the mageblade (rather than the whole mageblade), as you are taken back to the plains after getting it. What you need to do now is use the portal to travel to node 7 on the map (linked above) and take the lower path onward, using the bomb ability recently acquired. The nodes on the map are, for the most part, numbered in the sequence you follow in a normal playthrough (the only difference is that we usually travel up to 19 after getting to 15, to get the shadow trinket).

Im not sure how far through the game you are. If you have just got mageblade then you normally head to worlds end keep (see node 52 on map at https:/​/​drive.​google.​com/​file/​d/​0B3hRqcfMGu5aVTJPeFl4Y3VuNTA/​view?usp=sharing )

Hmmm, that sucks. If the game was active I would say split categories, but unless / until there are new runs I guess its unnecessary to create more categories. May be allow all versions and review if/when any runs are submitted with new version?

Thread: Are IL’s possible?

I don't see why not but I dont think many people would run ILs because to get good times you would have to get the very best gear, which will either take a lot of play time or cost real money.

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

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.

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?
