You guys planning on getting some hardcore speedrunning done on the upcoming break? Or will you just be too busy basically?

Unfortunately, I will likely lose my 40 runs/month pace as I will be travelling for 2 weeks. =[

I might look into some Mobile gaming stuff or something though if I get really bored for enough time; or maybe just download OBS on a family computer and record a few web games or something. Besides that; preparing for longest speedrunning break since I started doing it.

What about y'all?

I'm thinking I'll try to put some runs on the pages with no runs yet. try to lower the number of them

Nice. Old pages that got put up before runs were required hit that sweet spot between "uncontested world record" and "I don't have to do the work of setting up a game page" w/ a little mix of "I hope this mod still exists."

well, there's about 40 pages of 0 run games on the site, so maybe I can lower that number a bit

Planning on learning and running the longest run I will have attempted so far (LEGO Star Wars any%) (around 1-2 hours) Thursday and Friday since I've got school off.

I feel ya. Now I regret spending so much time playing games casually as a kid.

 
  KomradeKomrade

yeah, all that free time when I'm a kid, spending it with friends and going outside.

i could have been a speedgod instead

If you were interested in trying any runs on your phone / tablet then you're welcome to the mobile speedrunning discord at https://discord.gg/F2fJjUg for plenty of suggestions for games, or if you let me know what platform, genre, run duration etc I could make some recommendations here.

I work retail. Time off for the holidays? LUL

I'm taking time off in January for AGDQ and my birthday, but neither of those will be cram-packed, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, with runs.

If anything in terms of speedrunning im going to be grinding Need For Speed: Carbon to try and get sub 2:05 (or in other words, top 5, but the top 5 runners are really good 😛 )

And possibly learn some other games ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@drgrumble thanks. I have a game in mind I will probably work on, but I gotta figure out how to record the video basically.

I tried using a Android emulator earlier this year (since I'm trying to make one of my computers a complete emulation machine), but it turns out have phones have some pretty crazy hardware in there, so my graphic card appeared to have trouble running games.

If you find a way that solves my problem please let me know 😛

I just started pointing a camera at the screen. It actually works quite well.

IN general, it does seem like the iPhone seems pretty straight-forward, but I haven't tested it yet. Supposedly you can set to record you screen, but not all games are supported, which is a little what I'm concerned with, give I won't be around a laptop or something to plug into to record.

Nice one. I haven't got an iphone personally but I have heard good things about the screen recording on iOS11 so hopefully your game is supported.

I'll be at work after Christmas but hopefully I'll get myself some splitters or something so I can get a nice and crisp video to stream with. And I'll check on OBS and some Discords including the Sonic speedrunning one that Drakodan recommended when I introduced myself. Sorry for such a delay. In the meantime, I'm still currently brushing myself up on Resident Evil REmake and will look through some other games I have.

Me, gone for three days, wishing I had instead sat home and done run after run. 🙁
