Forums  /  Introductions  /  Want to start speedrunning and had some questions . . .

Hey all,

I'm queenchanleen ( and I've been thinking about speedrunning for a while now. I'm mostly interested in speedrunning FFVII, Resident Evil 2 remake on PS4 and Brigandine: Legend of Forsena on PS1 or emulator. Anyone have some tips and resources to get started? Also, if you play a PS1 or PS2 game on PC emulator, does it count as PS1 or PS2? Or do you need to physically play on a PS1 or PS2? And if so, how do you get a timer on that thing? So many questions . . .

  ThatEpicNoobThatEpicNoob you should ask the communities of the games you want to run on a PS1/PS2 emulator. And you should be able to use LiveSplit on the computer, so if you can use an emulator for the games you want to run, get LiveSplit and some kind of screen recorder. For running RE2's remake on the PS4, you'll have to check the rules for that game to see if you can do that. And you'll want to purchase a capture card, but use your phone's camera for now.
(By the way, splits are completely optional)
