Hi Guys,

As you can see, I started RE rev2 this mid-march. I was focusing on Claire Episode 4 on Normal since I don't really have a lot of time IRL.

I was doing a not so bad job and my goal today was to try sub 7:35. I think I reach my goal with my last run but when the highscore showed, instead of 7:33 (as I was thinking), it showed 7:25. Even if I did an excellent run, I do not think it is possible for now to go under 7:29 anyway.

I have to watch my replay when I will go back from work but I think it's because I was so bored waiting that the door open after Alexia speech (it was at least my 70th run), I started to switch from a character to the other until this stupid door open. Do you think it is because of that (that is the only big thing I did differently) ?

If yes, does that mean my run cannot be accepted on speedrun.com? That won't be an issue, the think that upset me off is I think I reach my goal of sub 7:35 but, more than that, on the official capcom leaderboard, I am now top 1 and, if it is a glitch from this stupid switching character, I look like a cheater... that's piss me off! I prefer to be second with a real high score than first with a glitch.

Can the community give me an advice? I would be grateful
If it is a glitch, do you think I can ask capcom to erase this score?

Darn, I am looking for answer and I found my answer on a previous thread: https://www.speedrun.com/rev2/thread/8sej2
It seems it was a well known glitch.

Still, there is this ugly record of mine on the capcom leaderboard... I do not think I will be able to erase that with the regular way... As I said, for now, I just see an eventual 7:29 maximum...

Since it is IG time and this glitch disturb the timing, would it be too much to add that in the rules? I suppose there is other part of the game people can use this glitch... Or maybe there is somewhere else this rule is written? ^^

The glitch only effects the timer on countdown mode, your run is fine

Really !!!? That would be a great news if this glitch is only on countdown mode!

OK, so I have to check this run after work to understand how I won 11 seconds and I will be back to you.

Thank you for your answer StevenMayte, I appreciate that!

Like Mayte said, the glitch only works for countdown and you probably had better movement cause that episode is about movement and how quick you get the grenades/shots out at crucial points. But great time you got tho. Claire’s Episode 1 and 4 are the ones I run if I get bored enough lol

Yes, I was doing some tests with fire and explosive bottles since I almost never used them before and I did a surprising good run! Still, I was "chocked" when I saw the final result.

OK, I am a little bit relief since 2 moderators came to confirm it was not a glitch.

I am still at the office so I will submit my run tomorrow probably.

Thank you again for your answers guys, I really appreciate your feedback!

That is understandable and sure. 🙂 However, I am curious to see if that does mess up the timer on normal again to be sure...that and Episode 4 does not take too long to do a run on

i pulled up the IGT in cheat engine and made an IGT script for Livesplit, i can 100% confirm it only affects countdown

Interesting, I also got a 7:25 on Normal Episode 4 as well by spamming it but if that is the case. It slows down the counter of screen but not IGT.. hm

Did a run without partner spamming and got 7:27 with Claire's AI being a bitch towards the end so yea...No worries about partner spamming.

Haha Soulless_Persona, I am so impressed by your skill! I trained every morning before work during 3 weeks to reach the same IGT you did in one night ! I love it ^^

Lol, I have been on and off the game since it game out on console..Had it on PS3 then got it on PS4. I am better at raid mode than campaign tho but at least know enough to get around. Still, you did a good job and it takes a bit to get all the skills and weapons etc for the campaign. So 3 weeks isnt too bad at all

 
  ZeZombieFaceZeZombieFace

Thanks!

And Congratulation for breaking the WR. I was happy to be 1st for a whole day ! I will try again later but for now, I am fed up with this episode ^^
Do you plan to submit your run?

Haha, I didnt think I would beat it but I dont care to run campaign much so appreciate the competition! Gives me more of a drive to do it lol
I do but better to have someone else verify it...Hold on

Run is a bit sloppy

 
  ZeZombieFaceZeZombieFace

Yes, that's my goal to bring more player and more challenge 🙂

And I agree with you 100%, if I was mod, I would wait for an other one to verify it, too.

 
  Soulless_PersonaSoulless_Persona

I am more sued to the challenge in raid mode tbh... So it is appreciate but god the AI of this game is trash..Legit gives me such a bad headache
I auto verify stuff on RE6 but I am like the only mod there soooo XD

 
  ZeZombieFaceZeZombieFace

So, I am not the only one who get mad at them (specially Natalia in episode 4 drive me crazy).

I play raid mode too but I just discovered there was a red mode (do not judge me please haha). Still exploring it ^^

Anyway, I already said it but thank you again StevenMayte and Soulless_Persona !

Natalia's AI is the worst...it is so damn bad.

Code Red is where you will get most of your weapons and parts so keep that in mind...some with the re events...you have an account cause they are giving away a great gun
