Thread: What's the lightest recording software?

No they don't, they wouldn't take down the videos otherwise, duh.

Either way it's not smart to encourage it on a site, bad things could happen, worst case scenario, the site could be taken down because of some idiot encouraging piracy.

Thread: Time Attacks/Time Trials

Started by: MeowsMeows

I think an option to change the "Individual Levels" into anything else would be nice indeed, considering there's even racing games on this site afterall.

I mean, it does make sense, in a racing game no one would use "Individual Levels" instead of "Time Attack"

Thread: Is a virtual machine allowed?

Started by: locloc

Alright so, since the game isn't on the site yet, you will have to request it via this link: http://www.speedrun.com/requestgame

Ideally, you should include a link to a speedrun of it (if you have one ofc).
If it gets accepted, you'll be mod for the game, you'll be able to approve and reject runs by others, and customize the leaderboard too.

As for messages, sadly, this is a feature that has been requested but still isn't implemented yet. Currently the best way to contact peoples is via :

- Game forum if they're mod in it
- Their twitter / youtube / twitch / whatever accounts

I think it's allowed in general, but if your game is already on the site, i recommend asking in the game's forum, or contacting the mods to ask them, just in case.

Anyway I do not agree when you say to contact the mod via twitch or twitter, I am not asking anything out of speedrun.com and if the mod has taken the responsability to mod a game in speedrun.com, he should be active in speedrun.com I should not have to chase or follow him in any other media.

What would you think if someone would go to your twitch channel complaining about somehting like this while you are in a live show or run? In my opinion you should try to avoid this unless it would be completely neccesary.

I kinda agree with that, but please remember that :

- That person is still mod
- As a mod, it's his responsability to take care of the runs and the leaderboard
- If he doesn't do his job correctly, it's his fault

Sure, it's kinda rude to come in his stream just to complain, but it's his fault to begin with, this wouldn't happen if he'd do his "job" correctly. As a mod there's not much to do either, it's just approving runs and watching a bit over the game's forum, if he can't find 5 minutes to do that then what's the point ?

Seems that only popular games have mod proactivity.

Yes and no, tbh it just depends on the mod himself (or themselves, if there's more than one).

Thread: PAL/NTSC converter for N64?

Started by: KylovicKylovic

What's wrong with the gameplay you have now? I am pretty sure converter are just to convert to different formats, I saw some of your N64 Runs, and I see nothing wrong, maybe it's just me.

Please tell me you know that NTSC > PAL when it comes to speedrunning. Please please please.

Anyway about the gameplay:
Reminder that a game in PAL is made to run at 50hz, it's not just the signal that's different, it's the whole game most of the time.

1) Click on "Test streaming" (or whatever it is in english)

2) Click on "Edit Scene"

3) Resize manually using Shift + Mouse and the "red lines" up, down, right and left.

Imo for the splits it depends on the runner, some peoples don't even use multiple splits, they just time the run from start to finish without splitting.

As for control scheme, well it depends, even if it's kinda the same thing as for splits : peoples uses what they're the most comfortable with. Still, sometimes keyboard is better than a controller, sometimes, it's the opposite.

Still, imo when you're good with what you use it doesn't matter much.

Thread: Some suggestions

Started by: xDrHellxxDrHellx

Hellow,

I'd like to suggest adding Normal and Hard difficulty settings for runs, also, puttings all 11 chapters for the Level Leaderboard would be logic since, well... there's 11.

Thanks in advance.

imo if you don't actually play before choosing an android then i don't see why you should start the timer before it, just sounds like a waste of time, unless if you change androids in the run... i guess.

Timer starts when the player presses "Ready" with selected Android for the run, player starts on Zone 1 Stage 1 and plays untill you hit "Complete" in the ending screen against Medulla.
Boss Dialogue will be set to "Skip" in the Game Menu .

Since there's multiples androids and you can choose them before starting to "play", that seems fair imo.

As for the leaderboard, if you guys needs suggestions i guess i could help, i doubt it would be a good idea if i were a moderator or something like that though, i don't play the game, never heard of it, and so far i don't plan to play it myself.
