As the title says, this is what makes them so easy. I discovered this during some testing on the program menu.

As such, the difficulty is inconsistent with the rest of the games. Should this be raised in the rules?

Not sure what the right call is, on the one hand, the game is kind of a joke at 2, but having to change settings might be difficult for some due to menu lanuage.

Since I'm the only one that has runs up now that @YoJoeGaming is banned, I'm fine with raising this to the level that the rest of the games are on (4) and redoing my runs. I'd volunteer to make a tutorial since I just figured it out anyways.

um okay kinda sad to see him go, he was one of the few competitors i had with some more obscure fighting games like super gem fighter

Yeah, me too to be honest... but apparently most of his videos were simply stolen play throughs that happened to be fast. I guess it's why he never seemed to actively compete on any one thing. sigh

I'm working on that though. Trying to get some folks I've met in the fighting game speed run community to try DS out and maybe drum up some interest via Speedyfists in April. I submitted some runs to Speedyfists and hopefully I'll get accepted.

And hey, if you'd like to submit something for DS3 I'd gladly duck out or turn mine for it into a race with you! FYI, You'll likely win as I'm quite the choke artist when it comes to competitions.

i dont have anything for recording gameplay with at the moment and as some people may have noticed ive started losing interest in speedrunning as a whole the past year. i do love Darkstalkers and i still play every once in a while and a race sounds fun but i don't know when i will decide to get equipment for a stream here is some info about me you may not know, i am a high school student at the moment finishing the second half of grade 11 and i don't have a job and with any allowance money i get im way more likely to buy a new game that interest me as for now i really want to play resident evil 2 so thats what im saving up towards, but anyway you shouldn't duck out of your run if its being streamed ill try and tune in, sorry

That's cool. Understandable. RE2 looks awesome, but I'm too terrified of Zombies to play any RE games... lol. It's a good choice though.

I'm 33 and I've pretty much been playing DS3 since it came out, though I really wasn't that great until college. Now, I can't really compete against other folks well. I have an autoimmune condition that makes a lot of the usual tricks and supers involving lots of quick button presses almost impossible during a 1v1 match. My muscles don't move the way they should after a while (Heck I have trouble with it while speedrunning, even when I know what the AI is going to do a lot of the time). So speedrunning allows me to still have fun with the game.

If you do ever want to come back though, there is emulation. If you have a PS4 or XBox One, you can plug a controller in to your PC and have one of the lowest latency inputs possible on Fightcade. Only thing faster is an arcade stick connecting via Bluetooth or actual hardware.

I'll let you know if I get accepted though!
