Hello everyone. There are some big changes coming to Resident Evil HD Remaster. The first big change is we are going to be moving from IGT to LRT. This change is happening so all players are on an even playing field regardless of their PC specs. The way the LRT works is the timer will pause during the door loads and the cutscenes. This is where high end cpus give the runner their advantages. IGT will be a variable available on the board. We want to thank TheDementedSalad for creating this LRT for the community.

Now here is the second big change. Due to how the LRT works, vanilla runs aren't losing 6.5 seconds per door which makes it comparable to doorskip runs. This effectively removes the need to separate vanilla and DS. Analog skating does not hold enough weight to have separate categories that will be identical in terms of the route. If any runner wants to use doors, they can now analog skate. Runners that wish to run the game "pure" can still use doors and mash if they want. Runners who want to use doors WILL NOT be at a disadvantage. Runners who want to mash WILL be at a disadvantage. Showing your inputs will be required for any submission.

Every run will be retimed to fit the new LRT. TheDementedSalad created an ASL that only tracked the loads on the doors. Several runners did tests so that we could find the medians required to retime these runs. The results can be found on a chart below.

I should mention that the medians found for runs with the old doorskip were just off of my machine. No active runner uses the old doorskip, so finding people to test would have been difficult. Additionally, Salad made another ASL that paused during the cutscenes as well as the doors so we were able to find out exactly how much time we must subtract when it comes to cutscenes. The amount of doors shown below might seem a little off, but the game sees several rooms as one big room, therefore it doesnt split when going through said doors. The LRT still pauses on those doors so that had to be put in the equation.

Runners that have submissions in both vanilla and DS, we will take the fastest time between the two and put it on the board.

We know that this system is not 100% flaw free, but we do believe that competitive integrity is on the line with these changes.

You can find all of the LRT calculations under this post. Feedback is much appreciated. We will begin work on the boards this week.

For new DS, we gathered 1,840 numbers across 13 different machines and the median was 0.53.
