Is this leaderboard going to get updated for XD edition? It's seems to be pretty much the same, without the lag. I'm sure there's minor differences, but i can't really say (perhaps some geometry fixes in fight house?).

Or should i request separate game leaderboard?

i guess seperate game leaderboards would be the best shout since an updated/remake edition almost always changes some stuff

I'd request a board to be honest. Looking through some remasters and remakes, the common thing seems to be that they're split, especially if the title is different. Some boards accommodate remakes/remasters, but not as many from what I'm seeing. That and a new board will have active staff that can make changes.

I'd like to have a responce from one of the mods before requesting a new leaderboard. So far every strat seen in Murpagator run worked in XD, and the only difference seems to be not being able to fully skip dialogue between missions, at least on keyboard which would definetely lose some time, but keyboard has much easier time dashing around which might open up some crazy strats.

I'm absolutely interested in working with everyone to balance out the boards. Which is why I've reached out to BlueMetal to be a moderator, once they're on the team the process of getting everything in order should move forward smoothly.

Also I may be doing a run soon myself with XD out now 😉

I've now split XD and the original version, with XD being the default since it'll be most widely available. Feel free to submit runs!

I've also set the boards to use IGT to continue in line with Murphagator's run. But if we agree to use RTA instead, that's an easy change. From what I've noticed, IGT and RTA are almost identical if you include the time from beating the final boss to when the final save is done. IGT imo would be easier to use since it seems to be pretty stress free. For RTA I've been starting timer when pressing A after creating the save file and stopping it once the final boss dies. Any better ideas for RTA timing, I'm all ears.

I requested a separate board yesterday before new messages here, because the only responces i've got were suggesting that, and no more responces since then. And it got accepted today.

Personally i don't really care which board should be main, but if it's this one, i would really like to have individual levels added to the leaderboard, because of president report after missions having really good clear timer and i'm more interested in doing that, rather than full game runs.

I've also set up discord server for speedrun discussions: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​fPcEZwG

Alright, understandable. I'll revert the change here on this board. At the very least I updated Murphagator's run with a working video link, so it's still there as a learning tool.
