Are you sure about SRC not supporting subcategories? That's how https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​gtamemes is built, I'm not sure how but that's how it is.

I might be alone in this opinion but hiding "All [Heist]" categories under Misc is my least favorite outcome of this, IMO they should be the ones in main category slots and single heists should be as miscellaneous.

I like Derpeth's idea, but this introduces some difficulty when using the LiveSplit because AFAIK when selecting a category there it won't see categories in that case (like the case is for gtamemes board, if you try to select a game you'll get a game name list instead).

I hoped some things could've been trimmed off or hidden, at the moment it's still very cluttered, having 13 categories all on display at once is an eyesore. Now with Casino Heist and Doomsday Heist CMM's it's only gonna get worse.

>Silent & sneaky & big con aproaches should be done fully in stealth otherwise it is just agressive aproach with extra steps,

Should not start restricting strategies arbitrarily, do whatever approach however you want, maybe doing aggressive stealth is faster than aggressive regular?

>timer starts on host being outside after starting scoping out the vault (scoping out the casino has to be done only once while vault has to be done every run)

I can see how this makes sense but it's still dumb.

Maybe instead of Heists being split by subcategories instead we have a Yes/No variable for Mastermind runs. The runs are pretty much identical and posting the same run in two leaderboards is counterproductive.

There's way too many categories displayed at once right now.

What I suggest is:
Combine All Heists + Criminal Mastermind under one category, then split them by subcategories. This applies to Main and Doomsday heists.
Hide all IL heists under Miscellaneous, as they were earlier.

So the format would look something like
Main Categories:
1. Main Heists -> Splits into Criminal Mastermind and Any difficulty
2. Doomsday Heists - same as above, and call it Doomsday Heists, not Doomsday Heist All Act's (which afaik isn't even grammatically correct).
3.-5. All Survivals, Lowrider Missions and Casino Missions

Miscellaneous Categories:
Fleeca, Prison Break, Humane, Series A, Pac Std., Doomsday Act I, Doomsday Act II, Doomsday Act III

I personally don't like calling it "Any difficulty" in terms of Heists, maybe someone has a better term for runs that are not Mastermind compatible.

Leave any further suggestions you have in this thread.

Thread: Interior Vigilante

Started by: iguanaiguana

This is still in exploratory phase, but I figured it would be better to post it here than let it get lost in Discord logs.

Current idea is:

- Move Ammu-Nation shooting range challenge to be the last thing you do before TbD waiting time
- Before Ammu-Nation shooting challenge, make a save icon replay
- After you're done with shooting challenge, dont walk out the door, instead warp, save the game and do the TbD wait thing. (at this point you can enter any interior again to cancel interior world, i.e ammu-nation).
- After the wait, you have to navigate to TbD in the interior world. You can use pickups, peds, map and cars to help you out. This is not as hard as it sounds, you'll get the hang of it.
- Do 12/13x TbD and pass Vigilante. Do the usual 50x Taxi, deliver the fares in interior world and after that enter the ammu-nation shooting range to cancel the interior world.
- continue as normal.

Some small sample size tests I conducted:
current {crash, ok, crash, ok, ok, ok, crash, ok, crash, ok} = 60%
look behind on the drive {ok, ok, crash, ok, ok, crash, ok, ok, crash, ok} = 70%
interior {ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, crash, ok, ok} = 90%

RoK said he also did some testing and got 4/5 - pretty much the same as I did, but on a smaller scale.

Thread: Apartment Warps

Started by: DewWorkDewWork

"from when all 4 players gain control of their characters to the point of the green flash at the end."

There's times where host gains the control first and host is usually the person with the timer and it's pretty much impossible to determine whether or not everyone else has control at the same time because of desync issues.

I already suggested this in the discord at one point but it had mixed results. I personally think it's a pretty good idea since it removes at least most of the random elements from the run, but then it wouldn't be RTA anymore, rather a segmented run.

Only RTA matters and this warp is already used in some newer runs, so it's fine.

Thread: Co-op speedruns and player order

Started by: iguanaiguana

Whenever submitting Co-op runs, I'll always be set as the Player 4 even thought I set myself as Player 1. This case is the same for 2 player co-op games, the one submitting will always be set as the last one and everyone else shifted one position backward to compensate for that.

Any explanation? if this is somehow game specific, its in https://www.speedrun.com/gtao

Started by: iguanaiguana

1. Start Loose Ends holding a phone call. Answer the call, glitching it using the fixed M4 spawn around the corner.
2. Blow up all the cars in the mission. Shoot the admiral in the beginning and the barrel next to the Rumpo.
3. Kill the 2 guys on the billboards and the 3 guys on the 2nd to top floor (one on the stairs leading to the top floor, one between the ice creams and the one standing near the previous guy). Kill the 5 guys standing around the briefcase.
4. Pick up the briefcase and fly the heli to start Loose Ends again.
5. Fly to the roof with the Sniper rampage, save replay here it if you want to, kill the new set of 5 guys that spawned around the briefcase.
6. SPRINT over to the roof to clear the gap and land near the briefcase. Shoot the Rumpo with an MP5 (or another light weapon) to trigger the 4 aggressive NPC spawns and pick up the briefcase.
7. Run around near staircase, going up and down it, throw in some occasional pauses at different spots. In the beginning be careful, there is likely an NPC around these stairs, he might not be but he could be, and he can deal some serious damage.
8. If list 1 is completed and you feel like list 2 could be half-way completed by now, leave the compound using the different heli that spawned. Do NOT fly directly to SSA, leave the compound area flying WEST a little bit, towards Umberto's cafe, before turning to SSA.
9. Finish off List 2 and deliver first 3 in List 3.
10. Fly back to the same roof with the briefcase, stand and walk around the staircase again, throwing in some pause buffers just as before.
11. If you've completed list 3 and think list 4 also has 3 completed now, fly to SSA and deliver last 3 cars.
12. Fly to the helipad at the airport to complete both instances of the mission.

NOTE: Instadeliveries MAY NOT work if you have a rainy weather, spam replays to skip the rainy weather if you happen to get it.

List 1:

The a little old setup

Quote


Short summary:
- Start Loose Ends holding a phone call
- Kill 17 NPCs
- Pick up briefcase, make a replay over the briefcase.
- Start Loose Ends again
- Shoot the Pony to trigger 4 NPC spawns.
- Pick up the briefcase in the replay
- Land at CP, walk inside to trigger some autocompletions.
- Go to SSA, deliver some cars.
- Back to CP if you want to autocomplete some more cars.
- Blow up the spawned cars.
- Finish the mission

The old way

Quote


1. Deliver first 3 cars in List 1

2. Start 2x Loose Ends.
2.1 Blow up the vehicles the mission spawns (if you don't you won't have any traffic)
2.2 Run forward to trigger the enemies that spawn from the Rumpo.
2.3 If you don't get the asset cutscene (pause -> wait 0,5 sec) and repeat until you do.
2.4 After you do, do the pause trick again a few times (the more = the better) while you are still om1, if you get om0 it won't do anything anymore.
2.5 Die.
2.6 Die again OM1 after spawning at the hospital (drown holding a phone call).

You can pray that in Lists 3 & 4 the bottom 3 cars will be autocompleted or if you want to be consistent: finish off List 2 & deliver first 3 in List 3 & do the process listed in paragraph 2 again.

The oldest way

Quote

Using mass ped spawns to fuck up SSA lists. This is still mostly unexplored area, I think it could be much better.

0. Deliver first 3 cars in list 1 and collect the first 3 for lists 2 and 3.

1. Start Dirty Lickin's 5x or 6x

2. Drive to SSA, if you enter Little Havana you should get the asset complete cutscene. If you dont: pause the game a few times.

3. Check the list at SSA, if bottom 3 are complete: (this can be skipped -- after asset cutscene you can pause the game a good few times and jump into water/suicide)
3.1 suicide to fail the mission -- if not, pause&unpause until they are.

4. Finish off list 2, deliver first 3 in List 3

5. Start Dirty Lickin's, repeat the process used in the beginning.

6. If bottom 3 are completed:
6.1 fail Dirty Lickin's by disrupting the fight
6.2 save&load to clear up the peds

Thread: Strat - Juju Engagement (2* Naval Engagement)

Started by: iguanaiguana

Juju Engagement, using Juju Scramble strategies in Naval Engagement to avoid crashing.

0. If you're just starting out with this strat it is recommended to get a large melee weapon before the start (large as in big enough to knock down an enemy).

1. Kill everyone except for the one guy that spawns the 2 briefcases (shown in the video).

2. Pick up the solo briefcase on the pier, as usual. Knock down the last remaining guy with a melee weapon or using your gun(demonstration). When he's knocked down on the ground, make a F3 replay running around him.

3. Walk away from him as to not pick up the briefcases and kill him. (OPTIONAL) You can pick up one of the briefcases here, DONT pick up both of them.

4. Drive to the café, at the front door activate the F3 replay, which should trigger two cutscenes and complete the mission.

The aim of this strat is to avoid cop stingers, which could potentially crash your game.

Thanks for the suggestion, but you should be able to add comments anonymously on the document itself.

Since I don't actually own a PS/XBOX system, I'm just guessing how this works using this as source.
I've added the following line to the document now:
PS/XBOX: hold R1(PS) or RB(XBOX) and hold left/right on joystick
