Starting today, Half-Life 2 Speedruns will be timed using the "0th tick" timing method.

If you are using 2838's SourceSplit for livesplit, the update should be automatic, but if you are using Fatalis' SourceSplit, or haven't been prompted to update, you will need to manually install 2838's SourceSplit, which can be found here: https://github.com/thisis2838/SourceSplit/releases.

To confirm you are using the updated build, do the following:

  1. Right click on livesplit and click "control"
  2. Click on "SourceSplit: Settings" (if SourceSplit is not there, then add SourceSplit to your layout or install the new SouceSplit if you haven't already)
  3. Look on the top right. If it is version 3.3.4.5 or higher, then you are using the correct build

If you do not have the new SourceSplit installed, please use the installation guide and add it to your layout

What does this mean for you?

  • Runs submitted after the rule change will have to use 0th tick. Runs not using it will be rejected
  • Runs submitted before the rule change will not be retimed (unless a special case deems necessary)
  • Category extensions will require 0th tick

Prior runs to this discovery will not be invalidated and will remain on the leaderboard.

Please note that It has come to our attention that Half-life 2 Old Engine versions 4044 and 2733 are no longer legitimate. Due to the age and activity of this particular board, we have agreed to continue using these versions as we would like to continue to celebrate old engine scripted than let it die due to a technicality.
