Zipless with a DJ Hero Controller by epicdudeguy; I feel this belongs here although he was not able to finish the run due to time contraints, as this was part of a marathon

Thread: new any% warp record, guys! and new TAS coming soon!

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

Well aren't those some exciting news, congratulations on the new world record! As for your millisecond question: the millisecond field is disabled due to leaderboard aesthetics and consistency; in our opinion this field only makes sense if, e.g., first and second place are tied and precision below a second is necessary in order to display who has the world record.

However you are of course invited to include the exact time in your run description to show and document the precise time / number of console frames!

@Oreo321Oreo321 "Marking runs with or without an autosplitter" is not our goal, it would rather be an additional feature we would get for free once this is resolved. The problem at hand really is that entering 000 for milliseconds only for IGT currently does not have any effect.

Sorry for necroing this thread but the (in principle great!) solution that has been found a year ago features a slight flaw, which I'd like to bring to attention with this post.

The original Prince of Persia leaderboard recently has been adjusted to feature milliseconds for in-game time because of the memory-based autosplitter we have. In order to balance the aesthetics of the board we decided to keep the real-time column (which is irrelevant for competition, yet offers an interesting bit of extra information) free of milliseconds. Because the game runs at 12fps, on average roughly 8% of runs will finish with an in-game time of 000ms (i.e. x minutes x seconds and 0/12 frames) so this is more than just a marginal occurence.

The current problem we have is that
- the "enforce ms" feature works globally, meaning enforcing ms will do so (a) for all subcategories & (b) for all time columns (RTA, IGT, Time w/o loads) featured on the board so this is not an option for us
- adding the 000 manually (with the "enforce ms" option turned off) only works in the RTA column, that is, entering "000" in the RTA column leads to this:

and adding 000 only in the IGT column is treated as entirely redundant:

In conclusion, I believe the easiest-to-implement solution here would be to extend the current "manual 000" rule to all possible timing methods (and not just for RTA, as it's handled currently). This would be also be the most useful solution for us personally because it would allow us to clearly mark the runs which have used the autosplitter, i.e. an autosplitter run would be listed as 21m06s RTA/19m37s000ms while an old run would be listed as 21m06s RTA/19m37s, allowing for a clear distinction of the two.

Following up on @7eraser7's request: could you please rename the title of said board from "Prince of Persia (mods)" to "Prince of Persia (Mods)" (i.e. capitalize the M)? Thank you in advance!

We from the Daedalic speedrunning community are in a bit of a situation: the moderator of two of the Daedalic games (The Night of the Rabbit and The Whispered World Special Edition) deleted their site account a few months ago, and now we found out that these games are left without any moderators. Sadly, none of the other runners for this game are in the Daedalic speedrunning discord---therefore I'd like to take over moderation for these two games.

Moreover, I hereby request the removal of @WuschelpinguinWuschelpinguin as super-mod of Harveys New Eyes. In fact I already contacted them June 2018 via twitch whisper (only communication method available) to join our discord so we can discuss this very issue, but I never heard anything back from them since.

Thread: Prince of Persia on Genesis/Mega Drive?

Started by: SigmaExcelSigmaExcel

Hey! Sorry for the late reply, but there are no notifications for posts on a game series page, so for future requests I'd advise you to post in the corresponding game's forum directly.

Indeed there are a lot of ports or the original Prince of Persia, so how we usually handle things is that we add them by request only so we don't have a bunch of empty categories. Thus if you did a run of the Sega Mega Drive version (or know of such a run) please send us the video or let us know some other way, so we can add a SMD category to the PoP1 board.

I'd like to request having CapnClever removed from the Prince of Persia 1 and Prince of Persia 2 - The Shadow and the Flame super mods for he has not been active in the community in ~3 years (this is also where his last action as a mod dates back to). Thank you in advance!

No, you have to start from a fresh file; what you're describing is an NG+ situation (starting with 15 HP collected in a previous savefile) which is not what an Any% speedrun is about.

Hey! As a mod of Anno 1404 I'd like to make some changes to the Anno series page (add a theme, replace the terrible current logo, add a link to the community discord). However, it seems that the series page currently has no moderators (although I'm not sure since when) so I was hoping you could help me out!
