Thewizard1247 brings up the point that screenshot of best time should not be allowed as proof because some levels are glitchy (e.g. 8 track) and screenshots can be easily bodged.

I originally allowed screenshots in the rules as I know a lot of people do not always record their gameplay and I wanted the lb to be as inclusive as possible, but I did not know about the glitches at that point. I'm happy to put it to the vote. Anyone NOT want video of run to be mandatory?

 
 

An alternative, although a bit arbitrary, would be to add an agreed base time, e.g. 10 seconds or whatever, to every run time (IGT) so that the leaderboard could still accommodate negative IGT.

 
 

I am WR for that game and stoked you want to try it. The discord is https://discord.gg/4v9CGAf where you'll certainly find help with the run generally or feel free to post any issues / questions on the game's forum https://www.speedrun.com/Swordigo/forum (there are already one or two threads there discussing the route and some guides). Your proposed method of practice sounds sensible and good luck!

Nice one. I haven't got an iphone personally but I have heard good things about the screen recording on iOS11 so hopefully your game is supported.

Looks like a really interesting game to run with some cool tech. I notice the game has IAP - are any IAPs needed / relevant to the run?

Also, I'm a bit confused as the run ends after level 30 but there seems more of the story still to go, and I see there are 40 levels in the game?

Incidentally, if you are into speedrunning mobile games you are welcome to https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg. There's a lot of talk about what mobile games are good for speedrunning and a good place too to introduce other runners to your games.

 
 

Sorry I haven't had a chance to deal with this yet.

In short:

1-1: GCTK24 manages to OOB by restarting at the very beginning but I have never gotten it to work and may have got patched out.

1-2: You will see from my run that I am not good at this one. You have to jump on the cyrstal to the left, on to the boxes and then pull towards the camera to breach the invisible top of the barrier. GCTK24's run is a better example of how to do it.

2-1: This is a hard skip and I don't even try it, best to look at GCTK24's run for an example. I think the key seems to be the second jump and timing the movement left but I could never work out how to do it (I managed it just once from my recollection).

2-3: There is a skip by bumping into the mob near the beginning, as below. I do not use it as (a) it is inconsistent and (b) it drops 2 chests (or 3?).

4-2: You will see in my run that on the third crushing block in that level I position myself on the edge of where the block will land, and when it lands it propels me into the stratosphere. As soon as that happens I steer up and slightly left until it seems I am over the mountain, and when the camera shifts to under the crushing block near the end (looking up) I nudge up a little and mash the hit button until eventually I come falling back to ground and (hopefully) the end of the level.

I think those are the only known ones atm but I think there are lots more to be found. in particular, the super jumping (as per 2-3 and 4-2 mentioned above) can work on a lot of mobs / blocks but I have not tested out what other skips are possible using it. The only problem is the minimum chest count required to progress into new areas / the final boss, so any chests you skip using OOB you must get somewhere else instead.

 
 

"I might look into some Mobile gaming stuff or something though if I get really bored for enough time"

If you were interested in trying any runs on your phone / tablet then you're welcome to the mobile speedrunning discord at https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg for plenty of suggestions for games, or if you let me know what platform, genre, run duration etc I could make some recommendations here.

Can we make sure individual level runs are submitted with In Game Time only, and full game runs are submitted in Real Time only. Cheers

Lol, I wonder how many of the tracks can be glitched like that...

 
 

Guessing the game doesn't have a purchase remove ads option?
Btw, there is a discord for mobile speedrunning at https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg, someone there might know the answer.

 
 

I see that another IL category 'Normal levels' was added but I think only one category is needed (Any%) so it would be better to rename 'Boss Levels' as 'Any%' and get rid of the second category. Boss levels do not need to be a separate category from normal levels, they are a level like any other.

 
 

BTW Heromaster, please feel free to join the mobile speedrunning discord: https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg

 
 

You named the IL category 'Boss levels' when you created the leaderboard, I have no control over it as I am not mod. If possible please can you rename the IL category 'Any%'? Thanks!

 
 

Turning off wifi and mobile data works against ads on most mobile games. Where there is an option to purchase remove ads I always buy it to support the dev.

 
 

Imo the "pc/mobile" isn't necessary but just my opinion.

Also, as the old PC runs listed real time rather than igt (even though igt was the correct one to use) they are now out of position on the lb. Presumably they can be edited to switch to igt?

I think current misc categories should be ILs too.

I realise I sound like a whiney brat - it's just my ocd tendencies coming through! I realise the alterations are a pain and not vital so please ignore me if you like. Alternatively, if you want me to do it I could be made a mod, tidy up the lb and then come off as mod afterward?

To whoever cleared up the tabs, thank you!

 
 

Hope you don't mind me putting it here, but if anyone here was interested there is a new Mobile Speedrunning discord server at https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg. There's not many mobile game speedrunners around but it's a growing community!
