was watching some speedrun today , and the guy had a lot of mistakes and spent time yet, the final time was better than mine. i have older pc and run at 30 fps all minimum .

i wonder just how much does better hardware and fps help you . my loadings suck too , also , i noticed some dialogues need a lot more to be skipped than at some people's runs ...

i bet that having a 60 fps in game and have it on SSD would have an impact

Use the load remover built into livesplit, this will remove the loading that happens during cutscenes meaning it will be more fair for you, of course fps and a ssd makes a huge difference, thats common with any game 🙂

at least there is an in game timer ... most fair way ...

The built in in game timer is broken, it still counts down during cutscenes meaning if you cant skip the cutscene as fast as somebody else your losing time, the load remover is the "most fair way".

omg . yeah . no wonder why my times suck. but will definitely sacrifice my :/C and install game there ... it's an SSD with puny 128 GBs ...

BUT , if i submit a run , what time do mods take in consideration then ?

You can use the load remover if you so wish, just submit the time without loads at the in game time.

If you have a ton of ram you could in theory create a ram disk and install the game on a ram disk, which would basically make load times non-existent.

i'll try to defragment the game's folder and setup the damn load removal timer I managed to get it working somehow yesterday but my splits were not setup properly ... I made two splits , chapter 1 start and chapter 17 end . but it automatically ended I think on start of chapter 2 . which i don't understand , since there isn't automatic splits available ... I could really use a hand with this livesplit setup for TEW2 specifically ...

Do you use the steam version of the game or are you playing the cracked version, cause if your playing the cracked version there is a chance the load remover might not work, it also might not work on the latest patch of the steam version also.
