Thief (2014) Forum  /  New rules for IL runs

(edited: )

I have made a change to the rules for IL runs to be that "Time Without Loads" now means, for all chapters, the RTA time, excluding load screens only, starting from the first frame when the title of the chapter reads ("The Drop", "Lockdown", etc) and finishing the first frame of when the word "COMPLETED" reads on the screen, with the exception of the prologue and "The Dawn's Light". This means the in-game timer is irrelevant, which in turn means that for existing runs, I will have to re-time them.
Lastly, "Time With Loads" means the full IL run including load screens and also including the cutscenes that start after the initial load screen - so those MUST be included! Or I will add the time manually to runs without them.
The only exception is the first cutscene for "The Drop", since the rules also say that you are allowed to manipulate the RNG for the painting and safe, etc, if you wish, meaning that a reload may remove that cutscene.
