Well, where i live, there's a retro store that sells GB Players, usually the guy would always sell the disc with the GBP for 30~, so i guess i'm just lucky

Otherwise, if you can't be as lucky and get a disc with the GBP for cheap, GBi is probably better yeah
It'll probably save some money in the long run, on top of having, afaik, higher quality when recording

As for DS capture boards, i wanted to avoid advertizing, but if there's scammers, then i may as well share where i got mine i suppose

Got mine from wich is apparently ran by the same guy that did
If you want to go for a DS capture board, i'd definitly recommend these, though it might not be the cheapest option since merki is in the EU (shipping to US in general is ridiculously expensive)

If you don't want to go for emulators, then :

- Use a Gamecube with GB Player, then use a capture card to record (could be less expensive than second option, GB Players are around 30 and you'll need to buy some extra cables probably, also SD capture cards aren't too expensive compared to HD)
- Use a DS capture board (expensive), don't need a capture card to record since it's already in the DS, just need to connect the cables to PC (might need a USB soundboard to get rid of static noise from DS audio though)

DS :
- 2nd GBA option
- Use a 3DS capture board (probably more expensive than DS, unless you do the wi-fi streaming method, i don't know much about it though)

DS capture board can be from 65 to 200, depending on how you do it (install the capture board yourself or not, send a DS or not, etc)
3DS capture board, afaik, is 300+

(prices are in € since i'm in france)


best of luck with the runs !
hopefully the game will be accepted on the website :3

i see

i think showing folder download and installing on video would be too much (too annoying mostly)
if you find a way to make everyone use the same rates (same server, same settings, or anything similar), then you could just have that command in-game that shows exp when you kill mobs

I think doing things this way might be less troublesome, in the long-run it might make things easier as well when it comes to verifying runs

if the rates are the same, then the exp numbers would be the same in every runs (easy to spot people who modified the rates etc)
also, the base exp should be on database (ratemyserver being a very good one), it would be easy to find exp for mobs (if the rate is x10, take the exp from ratemyserver and multiply by 10, for example)

a week-long run sounds really long, but since it's a MMO, it makes sense

i think something fun could definitly be done, if the game is accepted (wich will probably be the hardest part, along with setting up the rules for every run)

i could see First Job or Second Job changes being fun categories, and if the job change quests are doable, there might be some strategy needed for them (for example Monk job change can be difficult if your Acolyte is too focused on the support role)
MVPs would also involve strategy, especially solo

If group-runs were to happen, i think it could be fun to do runs where everyone uses a different base class (Archer, Swordman, Acolyte, Thief, Magician, Merchant)

I don't see anything about 100%

However, in this case since it's a MMO, i guess what you could consider a "full run" would be reaching max level (99/70, or 150/70 in Renewal's case)
When it comes to drop rates, i'd say official would make sense, however in that case that'd be hardcore

It also doesn't help that not everyone has the time to setup a custom server
Imo, you should reconsider this ? I can't think of any way to make this work

Honestly, i loved RO, still do, but i don't think it's gonna work for speedruns, or atleast not without a lot of work (to make it fair for everyone, even those who can't setup their own server)

Also, speaking about first job changes, i wonder how you could do this, since there used to be quests for these, but if you add the Renewal changes, then said quests aren't doable anymore

PS : There's also the DS game, wich would definitly take less time while also showing the good stuff from RO (musics, job system, on top of adding a nice story and stylus features)

PS(2) : Just in case, i've checked for other MMOs, i noticed that WoW was on this website, however from what i see, it seems to be done on official servers ? So again, i'm not sure how you could do this, especially now since even if you had to use official servers, they'd be gone (EU official servers, afaik, aren't a thing anymore, because of something they should have changed regarding user data)



What speedruns have you personally attempted?

There's too many, counting ILs, so..


How long have you been speedrunning for?

Atleast 4 years


What platform do you use? Do you use any specific equipment or software?

For streaming ? Twitch
For playing ? PS2, PS3, PC, Wii U, DS, GameCube (though i barely use that one anymore)

Equipment :
Avermedia ExtremeCap U3
Extra cables

Softwares :
OBS Studio


How do you prepare for a speedrun?

I usually just try to stay calm and relax before starting runs
I grab some biscuits, just in case

Sometimes i practice a bit before starting the stream / run as well (especially after not touching the game for ages)


How do you stay composed during your run? What do you do if you fail?

Depends on the game and how bad the fail is
If it's not too bad, i'll keep going (unless it's very early in the run and / or if it's something necessary for a good time)
if it's pretty bad though, may as well reset, unless it's a practice run


How seriously do you take speed running?

Used to take it kinda seriously, not too much anymore though


What do you do in emergency situations for example toilet/snack breaks?

No such thing

Toilet before stream or between runs
Snack breaks between runs if it's necessary, but usually once i start playing i forget to eat

et comment on fait ça ?

1) Commences par ouvrir LiveSplit
2) Clic droit -> "Edit Splits..."
3) Dans "Start Timer at:" tu mets une valeur négative (par exemple -5.00 pour -5 secondes)

Voilà, ensuite quand tu lances LiveSplit ça va commencer à -5 secondes.
Comme l'a dit Nariom ça se fait sur certains jeux, car le timer ne commence que quand tu prends le contrôle du perso (genre Zelda Twillight Princess)
Après ça peut aussi être pratique si t'as 2 ou 3 menus avant chaque run (et pour les Races sur SRL c'est pratique aussi, ça te laisse le temps de régler quelques trucs dans les options etc avant que la run démarre)

cool but when add pm system tho

Honestly even if it would be nice to have that, i think it's not really necessary anymore, everyone has discord or twitter nowadays (and if they don't, making accounts is fast and simple, and gives lots of advantages)

we actually have some people interested in Lunar Knights in the boktai discord
there's a route that's being worked on as well, kinda

PS : also if a page is made, please add it to the boktai serie, thanks

Is either necessarily better than the other for speedrunning use?

i think PS2 (with fast loading enabled) is faster than PS3, though i haven't read anything about that in a while so i could be wrong


when I do runs, should I still mark them as PS1? Or PS2/3?

You should mark the console you use (for example if you're using a PS1 disc on PS2, submit the run as PS2)

(You're litterally just putting the disc in the consoles, and it works, it's a legit, "official" way of playing the game, so it makes sense to submit the run as PS2 or PS3 if you're using them)

you can be a mod on multiple games

Not a bot but that topic should be deleted anyway
Also wouldn't be surprised if that person eventually came back to post spam either


Ragnarok Online, hands down

Aside from MMOs, i really like these :
- TLoZ : Majora's Mask
- Resonance of Fate / End of Eternity
- Boktai (serie in general)
- Resident Evil 3
- Tales of Graces f

There's a few other game OSTs i like, but these stands out imo
