Thread: Special version for PC?

Started by: SetonkeysSetonkeys

An older version of the game has certain bugs and quirks which have been patched out of the recent versions. As such, many runners opt to get the older version. You don't need it though, you can run the game on the current version.

Thread: Switch version just released

Started by: NinpalkNinpalk

Hi, we are still determining how best to handle the Switch, PS4 and Xbox One versions. Most likely, they will become their own variable alongside original console and PC, however that is not finalized. Feel free to join the discord though if you want up to date knowledge on the speedrun!

Thread: World category?

Started by: AQLGamersAQLGamers

I would say no. We already have each level individually as an IL, and doing them by world is just arbitrary. If you are not interested in running a main category like all levels, then just do IL runs.

Thread: Would I get banned for this?

Started by: kingkongdongkingkongdong

this being said if you are interested in speedrunning the halo series, you will want to go to haloruns.com, as the halo speedrunning community runs its own site as opposed to using this one (Hence why only category extensions and co-op runs are on this site).

Thread: Re-worded advice for new speedrunners (from a newbie)

Started by: BestFriendBestFriend

I've been speedrunning for over five years now, and run over 60 different games, yet with only one exception I don't care how well I do compared to WR. If you ask me, speedrunning is less about being faster than everyone else and more about being able to improve your own times. In no way am I trying to say that people who strive for a WR shouldn't, but you can speedrun without doing that. Going back to what OP was saying, don't beat yourself up over what one runner can do and you can't, instead get a good time with the strats you are able to do, and over time learn more and more. Not only is that a more successful strategy imo, but it makes for a happier speedrunner. Just my two cents, and I know a lot of this was already discussed but it is worth emphasizing.

Thread: IGT vs RTA Timing

Started by: robthegamer115robthegamer115

So after a few runs have been submitted and I have seen a few runs from different versions, I have reached the conclusion that IGT is completely inaccurate.

Looking specifically at the Football Cup runs done by ComradeMidas and Doopster made this apparent. ComradeMidas begins the race ~0:33 into the video and ends the first race ~2:56 into the video, meaning his IGT should be around a 2:23. Instead, they have a 1:55.288. Now look at Doopsters run. Their first race begins ~0:32 into the video and ends ~2:48 into the video, meaning their IGT should be around a 2:16 (or around 7 seconds faster than ComradeMidas). Instead, their IGT is a 2:10.528

At first, I thought this was a version difference between PAL, NTSC, and whatever version our Russian runners are using (It may also be PAL, I'm unsure sadly). However, look at the current WR run for all cups done by Genia. Their first race begins at ~10 seconds into the video and ends at ~1:53 into the video, making their theoretical IGT around a 1:43. Their IGT actually is a 1:43.348, meaning their IGT is almost certainly 100% accurate!

At this point, all I can say is I am confused by this games IGT. If anyone has ideas as to how all of this can be explained, please let me know. I'm sure it has at least some explanation regarding frames per second, since afaik games in Europe (and I presume Russia?) run in 50 FPS as opposed to 60 FPS like the USA.

Anyways, to solve all this, main timing has been switched from IGT to RTA to make things consistent (hopefully).

Thread: Character Subcategories (And guidelines (should probably read this))

Started by: PullPull

This is not an option on the leaderboards, however personally I believe if people really wwant to do runs with other characters, then do the four separate character category and just get rid of the all category. After all, is it really fair in the first place to compare a Pura run to a Coco run? However, if that is not an option, then I would just create variables.

Thread: Report a site bug

(edited: )

Hi, I am a mod for https://www.speedrun.com/ty2 - A runner submitted a run around nine days ago, but with a dead video link. As such, I keep trying to reject the run, however every time I click reject, the page dies before I can even type in a rejection message. I thought giving it some time would solve the issue, but it has not. I don't know why this is the case, and am more than willing to give more info as needed. I will contact the runner outside of src in the meantime to let them know the situation and that the run is being rejected.

EDIT: Upon further reading the past messages in this forum, it appears I have the same issue regarding google chrome. The run is being rejected now using IE.

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

Started by: GyooGyoo

Hi, I am already a moderator for Rugrats: Royal Ransom ( https://www.speedrun.com/rugrr ) and would like all other mods to be removed, as none of them have been active on the game for over a year, and 4/5 haven't been active on the site in over 4 months. I tried contacting the one who was most recently on via twitch, however never got a response. This message I sent him (redmoss) was sent on 12/17/18, 3 weeks ago. I understand that getting rid of other mods and making myself super mod is not technically necessary, however I believe it just creates confusion if people attempt to ask a mod something and only 1/6 mods are even active. Additionally, can SlyCooperPlays be removed from the rugrats series as a supermod ( https://www.speedrun.com/rugrats ) given he has not been on since June? If there are any questions regarding my requests, I will answer them as quickly as I am able to.

Ok @Liv thank you for your response. Admittedly, myself and the other mods overreacted and apologize for wasting your time. We were worried that for some reason the game was basically being taken over without any valid reason. After discussing this with the SM64 rom hack series mods, I now see we were wrong. There is a mutual understanding between all of us now, and we reached the same conclusion that you stated.

Also, we understand that they are "Secondary Rom-Hack Series" Mods, however given they have had 0 interaction with us and have had 0 to do with the game, we see no reason for them to suddenly moderate the game.

Thread: mod?

Started by: [Deleted user]

No offense to you LPhantom, but even if there was a need for another mod (which there is not), we would go with somebody who has been with the community already for a while, has proven themselves responsible and mature enough to handle it, and has shown that they can be active in the community. You've barely been on the site a month, and have not submitted a single minecraft speedrun. Just in general - never just ask to become a mod unless there is a very good reason for doing so.

Thread: NTSC PS2 Version

Started by: uematsufreakuematsufreak

sorry for the late reply on this! PS2 I believe was added as a console due to playing the game on PS2 saving load time from my understanding. Regardless, it seems that whatever change was made is fine.
