Heyya gang,

I've extracted some data from the Speedrun.com API, however, I can't for the life of me find the detail of specific id/code meanings. I know runners names are anonymised but I'm talking specifically in regards to platform, region, gametype, genres, engines.

Can someone help me out with this?

Heyya Guys,

I feel like I'm doing the community a huge disservice as I'm hardly active as a mod which is super unfair to all of you.

I am planning on resigning on Mod, from now I will remove my self as a mod and become a verifier and will make all mods that are currently serving as super mods!

Thanks for letting me have the helm for a brief period, you are all awesome!

Much love

Hi Guys,

WE'RE SHAKING IT UP!

Thanks for all the mod submissions. I will review shortly and appoint new mods. I will make a post once I've decided.

In the meantime please see below for a full list of rules. Of course, if anyone is unhappy with the rule changes/video proof criteria do reply in post and we can all review together:

  • Popping the 'select location bubble' will indicate the start of the run. The video must include this or it will be rejected. (Dec 2020: This includes cure mode)

  • Timing will end once the 'Victory' screen is displayed. Runs will be rejected if this is not recorded (Dec 2020: This includes cure mode).

  • In-game timer may be used, however, runs will be timed independently anyway (Dec 2020: I use WSplit, if it's down to the 0.0001 then I use amerecTV as I can do frame analysis).

  • You do not need to show what genetic modifiers are used, however, it may be useful to film this or mention in the comment for the video for others wanting to run this game (Dec 2020: this rule still stands, however, at the request of a mod, must disclose what modifiers were used. The rational being... what do you have to hide?).

From 22/12/2020 (Any runs submitted previous to this will be accepted with the exception of the Dailymotion/video link rule).

  • Only embedded links that display video - Daily motion links will not be accepted (Plus it looks tidy to have the video on the boards.).
  • No overlays on the screen (Dec 2020: I have seen at least 1 vid with a Twitch overlay, none of this please. If this causes an issue for those streaming to twitch then let me know and I can backroll this).
  • Frame rate: 30 or above please, I've seen some runs that fall below this, again for consistency please can we ensure this (Dec 2020: I feel like this should be a given, i'm drawing a line with this one unless there are special circumstances ie, a crazy, untied WR or something of the like).
  • All videos MUST have game audio (Dec 2020: I've just added this but I don't care if this was not clear before hand, it's a no brainer. EDIT: I did want this to be effective immediately, however after looking at some of the backlog of runs and at ethan's suggestion, this rule will only take effect AFTER 22/12/2020.
  • No mirroring apps allowed. If there is a strong enough case to allow these then make your voice heard. Too many variables I'm seeing that could lead to cheating.

I would like us to go into 2021 strong and approving the new mods is the first step. I'm still working through the back log of runs and if any of the pre 22/12/2020 rules are broken in these I will ignore these (with the exception of the Dailymotion/video link rule, if you don't like it, just upload on youtube. it's not hard).

ANY FEEDBACK IS MORE THAN WELCOME. ASK QUESTIONS, MAKE SOME NOISE, let's GET THE CONVO STARTED!

Heyya,

UPDATE 30/12/2020: Okay Mods have been selected:

ethanofdoom: Mod zylladys: Mod Pronoob: Verifier

Submissions are now closed, however if the need ever arises for more then I will open them again. Many thanks for everyone that submitted :) Just as an FYI we will get through the backlog, just give us time :P Thanks for the patience!

UPDATE 22/12/2020: I will choose new mods by the end of the year, I may pick one sooner, just keep an eye out! I will announce on the boards when I have made a decision.

Just wanted to throw a line to everyone...

I believe the boards could use 2 more mods on board as frankly, we need the extra hands on deck for this. We haven't been active and it isn't right, if you guys wanna run a game, the last thing you guy want is lack of acceptance of runs. So in that vein I wanted to apologies for the lack of activity.

So... The only pre-requisite is that you have an approved run or waiting to be approved (I will be clearing the backlog today).

Again, i'm sorry about the shoddy modding guys, I will try and get better with this.

Best regards,

Heyya gang,

long time no speak.

I just wanted to mention that GamerWolfSix's Aganist All Odds WR has been accepted as a nice place holder for time improvement.

From now on, every run must be completed, single segment. ANy that are not in this format will be insta rejected.

Many thanks all and have a wonderful Christmas.

Heyya peeps,

I've just been made mod for this wonderful game.

I just wanted to quickly say hi and I am working though the backlog of submissions so just bear with while I verify them.

If anyone has any suggestions please post or let me know, more than happy to listen and discuss!

Hey all,

Just a quick one regarding coordinate flag skipping using console. This method of running is banned as it is neither fun or skillful.

Many thanks for Wolfpack_7M who submitted the record time of 15 seconds for Invasion using this method, thanks for making me aware of it.

If there is a real demand for this category it could be added in the future, however, the demand will have to be pretty big for it!

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if timings for IL's can be just set to RT as it seems to be putting players with longer times on top of those who have shorter times. Good example of this is on Freeform Training, where the 2nd and 3rd placed times are in fact much lower than they should be.

I only ask this as to bring cohesiveness to the leader boards.

Thank you,

WTF.

Hello,

Due to inactivity of past mods of this board i requested and was subsequently made mod of the FFSR board. I have added a discord link for those who want to talk about FF and have added IL's due to the function of and in game timer. These changes were made in an attempt to make the game more approachable to run and to make the board more well rounded.

I have a few ideas for more categories but for now i think this will suffice. Any suggestions are more than welcome.

Thank you,

Ok firstly, loved this game in the day. Interested to run it. Are there any obvious tips or tricks that a newbie runner to the game should know?
