Thread: Using mouse and keyboard on a console game

Started by: emeraldalyemeraldaly

This is really special, atleast imo.

Because you can just buy that thing to play with mouse and keyboard on PS3, i think it's "fair", as everyone could buy it.
At the same time though, it costs money, and i think about to spend extra amounts to "stay competitive" isn't always a good thing (says the guy that spends way too much on UV setups for Boktai Kappa ).

I think the best solution, for now that is, would be to allow it, and maybe add a variable on runs, with "Keyboard / Mouse" and "Controller" as options.
The variable would mostly be there to keep track of which runs uses what, for now it wouldn't do much, but i think in the future, if you have to change things again, it would be really helpful. On top of that you could use it to see what people uses the most on console, which, again, could be helpful in the long run.

Anyway, this thing costs about 20$ it seems, i think that's alright (though it's still a decent amount for "just one game").
I think if it costed more, like, say, 50+, it shouldn't be allowed, because clearly not everyone could afford spending that much just for running a game.

i think you should ask this in the game's forum, you'd get more responses

My goal and how I see it right now is to be a top runner for a game while having the option to run a second game just for fun or to go to when I get burnt out on the other.

Might be better to just start your second game with a casual playthrough then.
I think it would be better for you that way.

If you like the game enough after playing it casually, you could consider running it.
I think in the long run that would help, otherwise i believe you would end up taking the second game too seriously, or just not like it enough to keep things fun.

(It's possible that it works differently for you, but for me, that goes well)

Sounds like you're just trying to do too much.
Speedrunning should be a fun activity, don't go too hard on it.

Take it easy.
Getting good can be important depending on your goals, however sometimes it takes a while, you can't always rush things.

The important part is having a good time.

Also, maybe interacting with the communities for your games would help, especially if they do races.
It's a good opportunity to practice, derust, and have fun without taking things too seriously.

Plus, you can learn things from others. It may sound weird, but just talking about strats can be enough. Some strats are easy enough to be learned that way.

Thread: Is pausing the game recorder allowed?

Started by: Diamond_GirlsDiamond_Girls

While it's "ok", i think it should be avoided, especially if it takes a while.
The main issue, imo, is that for splicing runs (as in, editing vids and faking runs), that'd be a perfect occasion.

To be fair though, things happens ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

yeah no wonder it's 38gb, the bitrate is way too high

your bitrates are 20 000 & 60 000, that's overkill, try using 2000 & 6000 instead
(also you could probably change VBR to CBR to keep a constant bitrate, instead of varying between 2000 & 6000 when it's needed)

From what i've played (finished PS1, played a lot on PC, and tried PS2 as well) :
Compared to PS2, there's smaller loading times (PC has close to none with how smooth everything is, and PS1 has smaller ones).

I haven't had any issues about areas unloading.
However the boss glitch (the boss in the mansion with Carnby) is still present in PC & PS1.

Though apparently one way to prevent it is to first start a game with Aline and then exit & play as Carnby.

This isn't our choice. It's the way the Variables are designed and setup on this site.

Tbh i'm pretty sure there's a way to make this look a lot cleaner, leaderboards have evolved a lot, we aren't as limited as years ago.

I'll sit, but considering the RE2make leaderboard has something similar, i doubt it'll be changed.
Hopefully someone will prove me wrong.

And yeah, i guess now that i know there's actually no 60 fps runs, it is nitpicky, however before you replied to me i didn't know there wasn't any, which was surprising to me, because back when RE2make came out, people were doing both 120 and 60 fps (also to be fair, i'd rather run on 60 fps because of my PC, and i couldn't imagine no one else would do the same).

it's not nitpicky : i wanted to filter by FPS, i saw 2 options, which didn't make sense to begin with. I started with the first one.

Then after the first option didn't show anything, i though it wasn't working properly and tried the second option, which gave wrong results.

This is bad and confusing leaderboard design.
