Thread: Question about a point system

Started by: RCanon86RCanon86

pretty sure Cyberscore would be a better option for points

Easy to get them when there's very little competition

That's actually not always true
Some games, despite having small communities or next-to no competition, have pretty optimized times

Thread: Tips on growing a community?

Started by: WoofMasterArfWoofMasterArf

- Add basic rules so the discord / forum / community place doesn't become a sh!thole or a place where people just spam non-stop
- Try to interact with others, as in : ask what everyone thinks when changing rules (on the community place or leaderboard), adding categories, or suggest things
- Stay open-minded in general especially for the above things ^
- Try to keep things simple : personnaly in my case that's about everything related to the community ; routes should be simple to read, or atleast have some visibility stuff (colors, italic, bold parts) to make things easier to understand, rules should be simple to understand as well, and the community place overall should be easy to navigate (text-channels on discord should be straightforward, users shouldn't be spending 90% of their time thinking "what is this channel for ? should i post here at all ?")

There's definitly more to be said but that's all i know

Though one extra thing i like to do is checking on twitter about the game itself and interact when people mention it (for example sharing patches that makes the game playable on emulator, share some unknown facts, etc)
It's a small thing to do imo and it's not really related to the speedrunning community itself (more like the game's community as a whole), but i think it's good, especially considering some people that have played the game before could join the community, as well as people that never played before, but heard about the game instead (which is why having a simple and easy to read route is very important imo : veterans should be able to see what's special about the route, and newcomers should be able to understand the basics : how the game & route works, and what are the priorities when it comes to saving time)

Overall this can be a lot of work, but i think it's worth spending time on these things : someday it'll pay off
Also it'll get easier once people join the community, the hardest part is the beginning because you might have to do everything yourself

it's just like fighting games : use what you feel the most comfortable with
also we have no idea which game you're talking about

Thread: Favorite horror game?

Started by: ShadowFlare7799ShadowFlare7799

i've watched nightcry on twitch before
was interested in buying it but the controls and lack of polish made me change my mind

the game isn't bad but i think it's not worth the full price in its current state

Thread: SRC API: Retrieve emulator settings

Started by: wartabwartab

About emulators, we had a topic about them, a long time ago
https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Speedrunning/​thread/​19h43

You'll probably find some answers about which emulators people uses in it, though things might have changed a little

Anyway, it's probably better to just ask the moderators of the game directly, just in case

how was it??

Haven't played it myself but i've seen it entirely a lot

It's good i'd say, though i personnaly prefer the first one
2 is more open-world oriented, it also adds some nice stuff to what was kept from the first game (items, abilities, etc)

It's definitly worth trying, especially if you've liked the first game imo

New bug on game series pages :

Checking the "Show unofficial games by default" option doesn't do anything.
Already tried unchecking, saving, then checking and saving again : no changes.

Thread: Favorite horror game?

Started by: ShadowFlare7799ShadowFlare7799

not sure if i could pick a specific one, but some of my favorites are Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis / Last Escape, along with RE: Outbreak File #1 & #2, Haunting Ground and Fatal Frame / Project Zero 4 & 5

The Evil Within was pretty good too imo but, well, the action-part near the end of the game kinda ruins everything i think

Thread: super mario bros 1 ntsc rom

Started by: hyperkiraa96hyperkiraa96

it's normal that ntsc is faster than pal, that's how it is for older games

basically pal ran at 25 fps, while ntsc ran at 30 fps (50fps pal & 60fps ntsc for some consoles)
ntsc speed is how the game is supposed to run

Can't confirm myself if rules becomes visible after reediting.

Nope, still empty. Same for reediting guides.

It's not just edited posts either. Guides that haven't been edited in over a year also appear as blank to me.

Can confirm. This happens on the boktai leaderboards too.

Thread: No rules have been defined?

Started by: GhostlyGhostly

I can confirm that this happens on other leaderboards as well (https://www.speedrun.com/boktaids/full_game in my case).
It seems like rules still shows up if you don't edit them, so it's most likely something wrong with the edit function ?

Taco pizza.... bro.... whats wrong with you people....

To be honest, i've done worse...
Blasphemy-tier : apple on pizza

(It wasn't bad but you could barely feel the apple, overall, i'd say it was a wasted ingredient)
