  FoxxyShazamuraiFoxxyShazamurai

Alright, so I'm using the rocket launcher set up in front of the megaton door (Thanks, petite_miku for the guide) and I'm getting consistent results in achieving the cripple without being truly crippled. I come out of the quick load with the crippled foot step sound and animation but for some odd reason I gain very very little to no speed each time. Am I doing anything wrong to achieve this or am I the victim of my game bugging out? I run the game vanilla and the only changes is I used the multicore processor fix. Many thanks to anyone who may help!

Not a wierd issue at all that's what happens almost everytime you don't get speedcripple. The speedgain is 0 when this happens. The reason you might never get it is because incorrect timing. You need to quickload after the missile explodes but before you hear the missile explode. Feels free to record yourself giving it a few tries so I can tell you what is wrong about your timing

Alright, since I've been trying a good twenty minutes with no luck I recorded about 40 secs of what my attempts have generally been looking like

Ok, so, I made a little list of your timing on the first half of your attempts, that should help you get the timing better. Another thing, sometimes when you start the game it can randomly decide that you will not be able to get speedcripple on this game launch. Relaunching the game might help sometimes. If after 3-4 "perfect" timings you don't go fast, restart the game. now for your timings:

0:04 - a few frames too late
0:07 - too late
0:10 - way too late
0:13 - perfect
0:17 - a bit too early
0:19 - a bit too early
0:22 - way too late
0:25 - perfect
0:27 - way too late
0:30 - a few frames too early
0:32 - a few frames too late
0:35 - perfect

You're welcome, hope you manage to get speedcripple and start running soon! Have a nice day 🙂

Update: After a few restarts of the game I ended up getting speed cripple third try! Thank you for the help and hell maybe soon you might even see a run from me on the board
