Are there currently any actual differences between these runs, or are they separated to future-proof the leaderboards in the face of any future discoveries?

@xdawnpiercexdawnpierce Right now I don’t believe there are a whole lot of differences between the two categories. The big thing that comes to mind would be garage skip, which is only doable when playing in roomscale because you need a few steps of room to do it. I also think a big portion of it is to future-proof the leaderboards like you said, because garage skip is a thing who knows what else might be possible.

I really prefer playing while seated in a swivel chair so I can steer with my head and just rotate in my chair. So roomscale wouldn’t be the category for me because I’m not planning on doing anything where I need to step forward in real life. If you’re willing to attempt to do those kinds of glitches then I would play in roomscale. Otherwise it doesn’t really seem to matter what you want to play and submit to. Perhaps in the future there will be more that can be done in roomscale!

In my opinion, I don´t care if it is roomscale or stationary because I can still do minecart skip and stuff as well as turning my full body in stead of using the quick turn thing. also what is the garage skip?

@Vector_DeltaVector_Delta @Parakeet_Dude Hey, so garage skip is just a glitch that can only be done while playing in roomscale because you need a few steps of room to do it. I’ve personally never done it so I wouldn’t be a great person to ask how exactly to do it. But it’s referring to the little garage door that you have to keep peeking around the corner for the enemies to open it and attack you so you can kill them while on the island.

It’s not a huge time save especially if you play New Game+ where you can just mow them down with a rocket launcher after two cycles anyways. But from what I understand the skip has to do with pausing and unpausing and then taking a couple of steps forward in real life. That’s why you need to play in roomscale so that you can have a big enough play area to do it in. After taking those steps forward while unpausing, you should be able to clip right through the garage door and walk right on by.

Again, not a huge time save. But I think a lot of the reason that the categories are separated is to future proof the boards just in case anything huge gets discovered like some way to get past the chimera wall or something else along those lines.

If you guys are wanting more info about the skip then I would head to the discord and ask people over there. I’ve asked about it before and got it explained to me along with every other question I’ve needed answers for. The community is luckily as helpful as they can be and it makes things a lot easier for newcomers.
