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!

Cheers. I think you would need to create new corrected categories and manually move each run over to the new tabs by editing each one, and only after clearing out the old tabs would you then delete them. A big pain so I'd understand if you don't fancy doing it right now.

 
 

The boards include columns for real time as well as in game time but the real time column seems redundant, plus it's misleading as most runs erroneously post real time as equating to in game time. It would be better to simply remove the real time column don't you think?

Also, just a suggestion, but I think it might look tidier if Grass Dungeon, Water Dungeon etc each have one tab, and PC / Mobile be sub-categories within those tabs.

Finally, rather than have Grass Dungeon lvl 1 etc in Miscellaneous, shouldn't those go into a separate IL leaderboard?

Or, if everyone's happy with the way it is, no biggy.

 
 

I definitely recommend the sequel to anyone interested in mobile speedrunning - there's a decent growing community around this game (https://www.speedrun.com/Speed_Run/thread/p4afw).

The standard of proof is dictated by the mods who hopefully try and get a consensus from the community for the game. If the community are happy with "I got x:xx" as proof, then that's the required standard. If the community consensus is that a run must be performed and recorded in front of a live studio audience and blessed by a catholic priest to be official, that's the required standard.

If you beat the top time but haven't complied with the proof requirements, then what you have is an unofficial WR which means nothing to anyone that didn't see it with their own eyes.

Great stuff!

 
 

Hi!

1) Yes. As long as you have a recorded run of it yourself and link to it in the request there shouldn't be a problem.
2) Normally crashes are tough luck and end of run, however if crashes are an inevitability in your particular game due to bad coding etc then I suppose some kind of provision for it could be made in the rules for the game, set by the mod (you, if you have requested it). Perhaps subtract time spent restarting?
3) Good question. Personally, if I enjoy speedrunning a game then I will enjoy routing then running at least one good run, and then hope that someone else sees it and has a go themselves and makes it a competition. I have a few games on here where no one else has yet had a go, and I wont bother grinding to improve my time on those unless another runner gets involved.

I run mobile games on my phone (sometimes with a controller but mostly touchscreen), there's a lot to be said for that.

What is your app called Twinzam? Does it allow for splits?

I think emulators are fine as long as they don't give an advantage. I have often felt that there is a slight advantage to playing mobile games on a keyboard / mouse interface but if you are going to not allow keybinds for trinket and spell changes then that will help to minimise this. I think emu should be permitted and if further down the line it seems as though emu is giving a material advantage then we could consider a separate emu category.

 
 

Interesting! doesn't look like there were any unusual inputs?

 
 

Most of my games are uncontested but there are three or four with at least one other runner, and my best experiences in speedrunning have all been when there has been a sense of co-operation in optimising a run or at least some competition driving the runs on. For me, it is worth doing a speedrun of a game you enjoy even if you are the only one, as it is fun to do the initial routing and there is always the possibility that someone will see it and compete. However, I don't enjoy/bother grinding run after run unless there is someone to compete with. The only exceptions are if there is a personal target (e.g. sub-60).
