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.

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..

Hey! Nice game, I may well give this one a go - are there any glitches or exploits in the run?

If any of you are interested in speedrunning mobile games in general you should check out the mobile speedrunning discord at https:/​/​discordapp.​com/​invite/​F2fJjUg

You might want to check out a similar proposition here for tips https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Speedrunning/​thread/​iblxr (which I saw EZscape is now endorsing, which is cool).

Thread: Remove RNG from speedruns

Started by: g3nericACEg3nericACE

IMO there is a place for mods which remove specific RNG if enough people are interested in running it as a separate category. For some games it could make an otherwise near-unrunnable game runnable and for others it could simply open the game up to more runners. As long as no one is kidding themselves that they can be judging such runs against unmodded runs then I see no harm.

Thread: Speedrunning to reach a target score?

Started by: RetroEsportsRetroEsports

There are score based games that are speedran on a 'time to x score' basis (e.g. https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Doodle_Jump#10_000_Points ) but personally I am not a fan. Seems a bit arbitrary but just my opinion.

Thread: Making good leaderboards

Started by: PrincessRescuerPrincessRescuer

One bugbear of mine is boards where they rank by IGT but the RTA is also provided for just one or two of the entries so you have a column that is pretty much empty apart from one or two times.

Cool, I'll probably nominate it next time round (this coming Monday)! DtM has been suggested for comp before, unfortunately Oddmar is ineligible as we only play games that are free on both iOS and Android.

Feel free to drop by the discord!

Thread: RNG

Started by: drgrumbledrgrumble

Game looks fun. My question is how much RNG is there, particularly in the opening stage, i.e. are enemy spawns (number and type of enemies) random, and is damage output partly RNG? The reason I ask is that we have a competition in the mobile speedrunning discord ( https:/​/​discord.​gg/​F2fJjUg ) every couple of weeks and this could be a good game to choose (first stage only probably), but if there is a big element of luck then probably not.

Ah sorry I didn't spot that there is IGT. Ye IGT is likely to make it pretty hard to cheat (but never underestimate the resourcefulness of a scumbag).

"NO VIDEO SPLICES! All runs must be recorded from start to finish with no stops/cuts"

I'm not familiar with the game so I don't know what splice tells there might be (e.g. cycling animations between level transitions, continuous music during loads, etc), but you may want to set some criteria for videos, e.g. "Must include game audio", "Must be recorded in 480p minimum" etc. If there are no game features that provide giveaways for spliced runs, then it might be tricky to root them out regardless of video quality though.

Sure thing. Hopefully it will pick up some more runners.

Hi! Can you describe in more detail the proposed categories? Like, a daytime only category would surely just be running around the back of the house to trigger the cutscene then running back home...

Also, great run! If you are interested, there is a mobile speedrunning discord at https:/​/​discord.​gg/​F2fJjUg , it's a great place to find new mobile speedgames, share your progress or just chat.
