Is it acceptable to have the video proof be in sections (ie, in six or twelve youtube videos)? In addition, is it required to have footage of the timer in the video?

As long as the actual run isn't segmented and it's just the video, that should be acceptable. Having splits or a timer running on the video is always --preferable-- but not required.

Thanks for clarifying Jumpyluff

I'm Going to route and hopefully run the 100% category

Yeah, I'll want to start with NG+, then NG+ All Missions, then NG+ All Missions Exterminator. I did an NG+ run the other day and got about 1:51:00.

I should hope that my first 100% run will be below twelve hours, which would mean about 12 - 15 videos.

Actually, the NG sections have some deviations. For example, the first On The Prowl skip can't be done because you need to break jackpot crates, cameras, and manually turn two cranks. Since dread point rewards diminish when replaying missions, it might also be needed to do some extra dread challenges in NG.

Also the current plan is to get as many skill points in NG as possible, as the reduced difficulty should make them easier, and many can be collected "on the way".

Also, do you know if the flail jump/mine launcher wallhack is possible in the PS2 version? Having tried both, I find the first to be impossible and the second to be far too unreliable.

Fortunately it seems that the NG section of the run will be mostly glitchless (completely glitchless depending on how I end up doing On The Prowl).

Without using the Flail/mine launcher glitches, I'd guess that a 1:45 - 1:40 is about the best time I can get in NG+, as my main time losses were On The Prowl, Sarathos Sprint, The Turn On, Jail Break, and Total Control (as well as the very first mission, the one before Advanced Qualifier).

I have also just found that the Ace Hardlight exterminator card is a complete non-issue in 100%, since you get about 350,000 doing all the dread challenges in Exterminator and about 250,000 getting through NG.

Without using the flail/mine launcher/wrench climb glitches, what do you think the fastest time is?

Also, what do you think the best setup for weapons is? I currently have:

Shock mod on everything except the turret

Brainwash on the turret

All ammo mods on everything except the vipers and the B6

5 ammo mods and 5 speed mods on the vipers

All speed mods on the B6

I only really use the B6 in Swarmer Surprise, so ammo mods aren't useful there.

Anyway, I've just got ~1:38:00 in NG+. I'll upload it later tonight.

Actually, going through the footage, its 1:37:05.
