I have to object here.
For most Individual Level runs, timing "ends when you freeze at the end", or in other words, "By freezing I mean when you can't move anymore". I presume you mean the part where your character cannot move anymore because they've hit an invisible wall. I thought this was the trigger too! But I got word from a moderator (SteveGaming6833) that the timing actually when you hit the "storyline trigger" (the Game Rules themselves confirm this!), which is a floor (at least for Chapter 1). For retiming my run (for reasons I'll talk about later), I actually went into the level and due to Roblox physics, was able to pinpoint the EXACT point where the storyline trigger was, thus causing both my run and bozai526's runs to be retimed.
Quick timeline before we continue! I got what seemed to be a 35.94, and it was damn near perfect for the time. (The better NG+ skip hadn't been discovered yet.) And yet, bozai526's run was a 33 FLAT! How could that be? So I put the video into vegas and timed it myself. It was a 36.33 instead! How could CharlesLXV (the original verifier) either let this slip past or retime so egregiously bad? So, I talked to SteveGaming6833 about this, and together with his clarifications and my work, we were able to retime the runs to what you see now: bozai526's 35.333 and my 35.201, giving me the WR (for one day..!), which I felt was well deserved. But the fact of the matter is: CharlesLXV reviewed the speedrun as is required by his job as Super Moderator, and whoever (bozai526 or CharlesLXV) made the claim of 33 flat, CharlesLXV accepted it without request, even though a more competent retime (even though YouTube's duration bar!) would reveal the flaw.
SteveGaming6833 and I already did the work to determine what counts as the end, and now some random person wants to go ahead and change it. I wouldn't be replying here if the same moderator who did a bad job with the retiming was now treating this wall by a random user as gospel, already posting it to the speedrun news with no edits. Now, if Charles65 (LXV=65) ALSO bothered to modify the Game Rules while he was at it, then I also probably wouldn't be making this. But, if you go to the Game Rules today, you will see: "Timing starts on first movement and stops when the chapter transition trigger is met." The chapter transition trigger which me and SteveGaming6833 have found and retimed for two runs in Chapter 1 RG+%. Charles65 does indeed have more powers than SteveGaming6833, and would be in the right to change this (despite how egregious that would be, I mean, bozai526's run has already been timed 3 times, let's not add onto that tally..), but he hasn't. Why is this? I'm not sure.
I point all this out because I really do care about this game and its speedrunning community. I invite all involved to come to a settlement that makes all parties happy.
I know how you can potentially do it because of how cutscenes work, now all we need to know is how to go backward. And for that, MIPHA, HOW DO YOU GO BACKWARDS?
if you dont tell us your run is more suspicious (as it should be, another mod should've verified it but nope you did)
fair point but if im celebrating the new year and my run is still stuck in verification i will judge the mods a bit
why hasn't my run from literal late October been verified yet? its too late for any kind of "first come first serve" excuse
if i sound pissed, i just did an annoying run a few minutes ago on a different speed game so that's why
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaf title says all nuff said aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaf
Those WRs are called "Technical World Records" since nobody other than you runs that category.
I refuse to believe the 20 second run is possible by any means. It has to be a splice. A very clean one at that.
I want to get this back up and running again, so I created a spreadsheet of our points.
Open for improvements!
Historically, OBS has been less reliable than Bandicam for me.
