So basically, I'm a college student majoring in computer science looking for some "smaller" projects to work on, and thought since I know a lot about speedrunning I would reach out here.
I'm curious what speedrunners or viewers think would be a PC application that would be helpful?

Or if it's something that isn't speedrunning related, I'm also very open to the idea! I'm mainly just trying to challenge myself, broaden my resume, and generally learn from this and make a useful application 🙂


Well, speedrunners running games on PC will usually use OBS to record their runs (or an alternative recording software),
and Livesplit to track the time on their runs.

@Oreo321Oreo321 they’re not asking what software people currently use, they’re asking what software/applications runners would want that doesn’t yet exist. They’re looking to develop applications people think would help them in this hobby.
