An interesting alternative we could try is having load removal compatible with captures of console, like the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy does. It detects the black of the loading screen to stop the timer, if this is viable for RE8 then we could use RTA and remove load, and even try to have It recognise the elevators so that's taken out altogether. (Although I'm not sure how this would work with RE8, unless you can give it the loading images too) As a base xbox runner i'd hate to see the 'pay to win' sort of situations just using RTA would create without any tweaking for console, but i agree that IGT is a bit ineffective for what we want to achieve with a run. (It's a shame the Microsoft store doesn't have both the box and pc versions on it like 7 or I'd just run PC but alas). The idea of not approving runs if too much time is spent in inventory is a good one, and might be what we need to do if we use IGT. Either way the leaderboards will be a mess, so we might just need to suck it up and separate the consoles entirely if we can't find another option

The Discord had a quick discussion, and for the Mods for easy reference, here's the suggestion for 100%:

All Boss-crystals (4) Mini-Boss Crystals (Axe-Guy, Hammer-Guy, Big Bad Wolf) (You could just say all types of crystals, because the enemies tend to drop at least one of their types just going through anyway) Big Treasures (Golden Chests on the map) All combinable Treasures (5, 11 Pieces) All Unique Treasures was also mentioned but that might be hard to classify All Labyrinths (4) All Meals (6) (In the same vein, all Hunting locations was suggested, which would probably go hand in hand with all meals)

Ahh it was just because i found none of them that I thought they were NG+

The other issue with Meals is that some appear to be NG+, as you can't get the high quality ingredients in a standard NG playthrough. But if we figure out the cross save issue then the ones that can be done in NG should be done, and for NG+ runs all have to be done (which means having a set up file that doesn't have any of the meals previously completed)

That sounds like a decent amount. Maybe the Big Treasures include the Golden Chests on the Map

But even then, the achievements are file wide and would also require a total reset like reinstalling the game. It's a bit of an ask for every run. I don't think 100% is viable for 8 unfortunately.

The meals also don't reset so unless we want to do a multi-run all achievements with the above things to include weapon upgrades I don't think 100% is viable. That being said, an all achievements run would be interesting

I've since discovered that the Goats of Warding don't respawn once you get them... at all. So either we forgo it as a requirement (Which, IMO, takes out most of the point of even doing 100%), or we have to reinstall the game for each run, which is a bit much.

So it seems there isn't a final count of certain items like in 7, so what would we include for 100%?

What I think should be included: Goats of Warding (20) Labyrinths (4) Meals (6) (Although it appears some of the ingredients are NG+) Boss Crystal Forms (In case a skip is found) (4) Combinable Treasures (5)

What could be added but are a bit sketchy and I think are a bit much: Backpack upgrades Weapon upgrades Mini Boss Crystal Forms (The Daughters, the Axe Dude, Hammer Dude)

Those who want to run 100%, what are your thoughts on what should be included?

Can also confirm Xbox One version. Seems like a fun little exploit

As much as I love IGT i agree with changing to RTA just for the inventory. RE7 had a huge amount of inventory optimisation, and while Village doesn't have the same inventory system it still should be required to do fast menuing in a speedrun (as terrible as I am at it)

Hey! I'm interested in running this game and I came across this thread. I think a seeded Adventure Mode Category would be an amazing addition, as it would be more like a traditional speedrun in terms of memorising the route and small optimizations. I'd be happy to work with y'all to find the best seed and to help with routing if you're down

New to Twitch too, I'll try that out, thanks a bunch!

So I'm new to the community, and I don't have a capture card for my Xbox, would I need to wait until I can afford one before I can record and submit a run or can I film my TV and submit that way?
