Thread: Individual Track Leaderboard?

Started by: Italy2003Italy2003

There are dedicated sites for Time Trials and a speedrun leaderboard isn't that. Asking for a leaderboard to be added with so many variables like HP is ridiculous.

I made the leaderboard just for book and didn't make anything else yet, so just give me time, and I'll change it.
No need to make a giant essay about it.

I can upload mine when I get a chance. Unless you have a specific route you want to do, which it'll be different, of course.

No, it still won't be reliable enough, 'cause of the hardware.

Oh, ok. Did you not have backups of the recordings?

Pretty sure I cannot delete an account that is linked to this site, that's something for an admin to do.
There is no reason to add a level leaderboard for tracks.
The leaderboard would be way to big, seeing as though there is already 50 license tests. No need to make it 26 or so bigger.
Track ILs are best placed at places like cyberscore, forums like gtplanet, or dedicated time attack sites, not a speedrunning board.

And CoopeZz, you need to calm down. I'm tired of your harassment of these leaderboards, just because you aren't getting your way. You don't change the rules of the leaderboards. Start being respectful and quit being a child.

Started by: calcifer050calcifer050

I realize this is late, but from reports from people who own the PS Classic, I'm not gonna allow runs to be done on it.
Framerate issues and inaccuracies plague the "console".
This'll save everyone from having to own one.

This is Pole Position. F1 isn't in the title and has nothing to do with the series.

No one has suggested it.
If you or anyone else does one, I'll add it.

It'll probably be a new console, but it's not getting added right now, since it hasn't been released.

Thread: How good is Negcon controller for speedrunning?

Started by: [Deleted user]

It is immeasurably better. The game handles the neGcon differently than DS1/2 and the JogCon.
Handling is better and speed isn't lost as much during turning, drifting and not drifting.
The WR before neGcon was a low 28, and with the neGcon, you can see what the runs are now.
They aren't impossible to buy nowadays. With a shipping proxy, Amazon JP, ebay has them, and yahoo auctions.

Thread: Leaderboard Changes

Started by: n1nj4ofshr3dn1nj4ofshr3d

I have added as many consoles Pole Position was released on, as much as I can find.
Changed timing to In-Game Time to avoid confusion of loads on consoles/emulator/etc.
Changed the category from "High Score (12k)" to "Qualifying Lap" since all the runs done were just the first lap.

Thread: Splitting Arcade Difficulties

Started by: josef733josef733

You used the word "difficulty" in the wrong context. I thought you meant in the options menu, Rookie, Pro, Ace.
I guess I'll add them in Misc. since they aren't full runs.

The difficulty doesn't change anything about the tracks, just the AI, so there would be no time difference, in theory. Doesn't make sense to clog the board with runs that are identical.

Thread: Rework of leaderboards

Started by: CPZCPZ

Why do you feel the need to separate PAL/NTSC when this game was release on 3 different consoles with varying loading times? There's an in-game timer and at the end of each Arcade/Trophy/Championship, and that can be used for times submitted alongside RTA. And, I can't imagine anyone tested if PAL is slower than NTSC for each console release. Just because a game was release in both regions in the PS1-era, doesn't mean PAL is slower. Gran Turismo 1, PAL is slower than NTSC, but Gran Turismo 2, it's the other way around. That would clean up the board, so there isn't a sub-category for everything.
The rule of "Any car can be used" shouldn't exist, unless there is a plan to add a New Game Plus sub-category, even though there is no post-game. Allowing only the starting cars for runs except cars unlocked throughout the category should be the rule of runs. Example: Using cars unlocked through Arcade Mode in an Arcade Mode run.

Thread: Category Extensions?

Started by: CPZCPZ

We don't need more moderators, and "Sunday Cup" isn't a full speedrun, and there's never been interest until now, so it won't be added.

Apologizes for a late response.
Grand Prix Mode doesn't have a reverse option, so you can't watch the credits after you finish the races in Time Trial Mode.

Thread: Need opinions: Removing License Test Leaderboards

Started by: n1nj4ofshr3dn1nj4ofshr3d

There's only ever been 1 other person with interest in an all license run in the over 2 years this community has been around, so there isn't gonna be a leaderboard for it.
And, for the privacy of the posters of Cyberscore, I'm not gonna submit their times here.
If it's removed, there won't be anything in Level Leaderboards.

Thread: Need opinions: Removing License Test Leaderboards

Started by: n1nj4ofshr3dn1nj4ofshr3d

I realize there are people who submit license test times here, but this leaderboard isn't the "official" one most people use for real times.
This is: https://cyberscore.me.uk/game/342
It's a UK site, but has all the best times from years past.
I believe this leaderboard doesn't have a place since most people don't know about speedrunning, or don't care about it, so it'll never be a place for everyone. This means there will be better times out there from years ago which are records, and the ones here aren't. And, it's not like I'd move those times here, 'cause that's not right at all.
I just need some opinions on the matter, and this will be posted in the first 4 game's forums as well.
