@Meta do the runs on the challenge board get submitted to the main game leaderboards?

After the challenge is over, we’ll discuss with the GR2 moderators to see if the challenge runs can properly fit into one of the categories after their moratorium period

"You are only allowed to bind keys through in-game settings." Game is currently unplayable for esdf since these keys are hardbound but i have high hopes this gets fixed in time for the challenge :)

@Ericg08 that’s actually strange, funnily enough I also use ESDF and I didn’t have any issues haha

How will downloading LiveSplit work on PS5?

Rules says you are allowed to change FPS in game settings throughout the run.

Are there any plans to make a rule that says you cannot go higher than 60 FPS or something, but still change it between 0 to 60, so even the people with hardware disadvantage can have a chance claiming the top as well?

@A2Hsmoke livesplit is not required for console runs - apologies I’ll make sure that’s reflected clearly in the rules a bit later today

@maltemller No plans for that right now as there is currently no known high fps strats. At the moment I believe the highest in game framerate setting is 144 so I suppose we technically have a 144fps cap. Beyond that, we can discuss as more discoveries are made! :)

Edit: 240 FPS is the highest cap

Some people have early access and will be playing the game as early as today. It's a 2 week bounty and some creators get it 3 days early.

This bounty seems too short to be fair, they get 3 extra days to learn the mechanics and route. 3 days for a 14 day bounty is massive.

@Meta will challenges be a thing where people can creare them. I think it would be pretty cool to have that feature.

@Act_ That's the plan! We don't have a vision for how exactly that would look like yet, so if you have any feedback or suggestions - please let us know :)

I like the display this had on the home page. It's very nice.
