It's pretty much impossible and would need it's own category due to the fact the PS2 can not load the game fast enough.

If you can confirm that the games internal FRTE is consistently at 29, 30, or 31, there should be no issue. Make sure to join the discord if you have further questions.

Heya, we're mostly active on the Discord and don't read the forums much.

I'm actually the guy who found this in the community. It only works without the reaver, which is why it is not used. It also only saves about one second in the intro section of the game. After which there is not enough room to benefit from the momentary slowdown you get if you do it without TAS.

You trigger it based on sound/animation cue. After the second to third step, before raziel transitions into the running animation from a completely still standing position, release the movement keys, then press them again.

oh its annoying. but it can be done. youre just not gonna spend the hundred hours or so to do it.

but if you really want to, check out the livesplit discord

latest at the time, which already excludes a major glitch. everything shown should still be possible.

Bavaria, GermanyTheDuriel7 years ago

id say that any run of the game will be a sufficient enough guide, as there are no glitches remaining in the run that cant be figured out by just watching them. "long jumping" is mostly a matter of practice too.

if a crack is required, and said crack modifies or replaces game files the answer is a big fat NOPE. assuming anyone were to find out... though i suppose you just told everyone... otherwise nobody cares outside of emulation, which simply needs to be disclaimed and categorized.

ohhh wow, this is starting to get interesting. cant say how much of the info you have there is actually new (since we, as in the lok community) have had access to the games own debugging erm... "tools" for a while now, including multiple pre release versions. im gonna have to watch the full video once i have some time

that being said id like to invite you to our public discord if youre interested in a more active chat https://discord.gg/8Ynyd8V anyone else interested in the Legacy of Kain series is also welcome :D

@MicroTransactions im surprised you actually did something :D but thats just basic googlefu. weve known that stuff for years ;P

"it's a bit difficult to pick it apart from that point" is a MASSIVE understatement

download the nvidia inspector package. the nvidiaProfileInspector will then allow you to find the specific game, and set various framerate limiters.

you can wrap the game using dgvoodo or similar tools. though if you do so, and want to submit a run, you must double check that the games internal frame rate (FRTE) is still 59/60 using the trainer form the resources section.

edit: and yes talic is correct, your nvidia/ati drivers should have a scaling option for non native resolutions.

legacy of kain defiance. a 10 hour linear game, with a 21 minute run. lots of fun with glitches, and cutscenes can be skipped.
