In regards to hotswitching, it says you can't on any level before fall. I think it says "Not in this simulation" or something like that.

I agree with Bullets, separating the category further would not be helpful, especially considering there's only a few runs at the moment. And having use of a new game + file for All Secrets makes it easier to check which levels have already been done and which haven't.

All Secrets is no longer in misc. Seeing as it has become active recently it'll stay there for now.

Don't press the big red button Ellieceraptor :P

Seems weird that you can SUPERMOD people if you're a SUPERMOD, but can't un-SUPERMOD them.

I won't delete everything. I might change the background image we are using right now, as it is blurry and isn't a scene in the game as far as I know.

Ninja-Edit: Has anyone noticed that I changed the Speedrun.com logo yet, I did it a few months ago. Same font as SuperHot and everything.

Edit2: I can remove myself as Super Mod.

Just wanted to make sure it would be allowed before they were verified.

Gonna leave the runs until Soulcloset sees this. Want a second opinion on new rules and stuff before I go verifying runs.

Completely forgot about the other skips at the end. Should be 18 minutes easily

The rules currently state that you can only use the level menu between certain levels. However, in hacker, after you have hit yourself and before the level ends, you can escape to the menu and access the level list and go into fall. This skips closing the game, the chats and the box room. It saves a good 2 - 3 minutes and from fall onwards the story mode continues as normal.

Wondering if this should be added to NG+, as it gives a significant difference between the two and saves a lot of time compared to Any%.

I have done a run with this strat and the time save is pretty clear. Just a case of whether or not it's allowed.

Run starts at 37:30 and the skip is at 49:50

@Ellieceraptor Thanks, I would honestly have recommended you as a new mod to be honest. You know Any% and Katana% pretty well and you are one of the most active people here.

@Soulcloset Kura asked if he could be a mod in the past, there's a thread about it from a few months ago. That's why he's a mod I think. No idea what he is up to though as he hasn't been on here in a while.

I've been busy with work and trying to find a new job, place to live and everything. I do check in as often as I can though and verify what I can when I can but it does take time.

If there is anyone that seems trustworthy, is active enough and would like to be a mod, I don't see why they can't be one.

The new game + run is similar to the any% run, but you can use the levels menu in between certain sections, saving a lot of time.

The all secrets run requires you to find all the secret terminals in each level. To be able to do that multiple times you would need to clear your save file by deleting the super.hot file in your AppData. You can make a copy of it though if you don't want to lose your challenges and endless mode progress.

If you haven't already, watch LtDisco's sub 20 Any% run and Ellieceraptors sub 11 Katana% run.

Holy fuck, those runs were godlike and absolutely amazing to watch. Everything moves so quickly at some points that I had to rewatch them twice just to make sure I saw it right.

Congrats on the amazing runs guys.

Will be up and watching. Good luck with the run!

So the Xbone version of Superhot came out about a week ago now. Anyone played yet? Are there any glitches you've found that aren't in the PC version? Differences? Talk about it all here.

Just seen and verified your run Ellieceraptor. It definitely seems that the timesave you get is only useful during a highly optimised run (sub-20 worthy) that needs those few seconds shaved off. I think it's best that it is included in Any%, rather than as a separate category.

Additionally, the NewGame+ run isn't too different from Any% unless more glitches are found that require a completed save file. At the moment there's no point having it be a separate run.

That's my opinion anyway, I don't know what other's think about it.

@Soulcloset It seems to save about 10 - 20 seconds on top of the current skip. My menuing isn't 100% perfect so it could be less than that. Also gonna reword the rules for this skip in Any% and NG+ to make it a bit clearer, feel free to change them if you feel the wording is weird.

EDIT: If any more skips or glitches are found using the levels menu, then it can be amended to state that you cannot use the levels menu for any% and you can for ng+

Once you complete the game, you are able to choose levels to play. Restarting the game through restart.bat in the options does not lock any of the levels.

Playing through with a new file, you don't have access to the levels selection screen, as seen here at the beginning of the game, before kickstart.

And here, after you exit to menu from subway. This is after waiting for the download, however the levels menu isn't there before that anyway.

This glitch is only usable once you have completed the game. This means either a New Game + category needs creating for this and similar glitches in future, or we as a community allow it for Any%.

Will test LgkLewd's strat with a blank save file, as it sounds like it might only work after you've completed game once. If it doesn't work with a new file we might have a new game + category.

At the moment, people have been loading superhot.exe after a reset, leaving the level without completing it and then starting a run, saving about 10 seconds. If you do mess up on kickstart, you can always back out and try again.

Good example is LT_Disco's WR run here http://www.speedrun.com/run/2yw6e23m
