I'm not sure if the Switch console should be added to the consoles list, but is adding even worth it? How much slower would it be over the strats on PC? I'm assuming it's not worth splitting the game between console and PC at the moment either.
Console has the disadvantage of not having mouse precision for performing skips. That being said, runners are allowed to run it on any platform and I will get switch added as an option for run submissions. If you need any help getting into the game hit me up via dms!
Thanks! If precision is the only issue, does that mean console could theoretically match PC times with practice, or are there certain things that are FPS-locked, patched, etc.? Additionally, how up to date are the guides listed here?
In theory console should be able to match in terms of execution though it would be at disadvantage as we use a load remover for PC times and loads on PC are about 2ish minutes over the course of a run. The guides that are floating around can explain most of the tricks but there isn't anything with everything in one place. Which category were you thinking of running?
Just Any% for now. I was mostly going to work off of the 5 year old video, but maybe that's not a good idea? Is there any way we can manually calculate remove load times (BioShock does this for console sometimes)? I'm assuming there's not nearly enough activity/interest to split PC/console yet, which is very fair.
The older video will get you the basics of the route. The top runners atm are using a spine skip from low percent and there is a new animation cancelling skip I found to get past two more fights, but you can add those in later. At some point I'll make an updated video
