Thread: Assault Android Cactus Runs

It's not because the game isn't on this site that isn't not a legitimate speedrunning game.
It just means no one here did a run and a leaderboard.

How exactly do I do that?

By contacting the mods, either via their twitter, twitch account or whatsoever.
Maybe posting in the forum of these games might help too.

Happy New Year !

Resolutions huh... i guess finishing what i started with boktai would be a good start. Maybe learn some other games for once too.
Also, getting a job would be nice Kappa

How about you ?

Thread: How Do You Know?

Started by: VertigoVertigo

It kinda depends actually.

Technically, if you want to be really competitive, you should start when you gain control of the character and stop when you lose control of it (like after a final boss for example).

Otherwise well... it all depends on the game i guess ? Some games you start when you can move the character, or start reading dialogs (like in Digimon World i guess).

In my case, for Boktai, i start it when i start the game, after putting a name for the character. There's still an intro where i don't even need to press anything, but i don't care about it that much, to me it feels better that way, mostly because it's simple, and, to me again, it makes sense, since the intro happens after choosing the option to make the game start.

You do realize that this isn't the admins' fault, but the moderators of said games ?

Point him out while saying a TAS shouldn't be on a leaderboard for non-Tool-Assisted speedruns.

I see... Well, i guess i'll leave it like that for now, afterall it's not like there's gonna be more variables and stuff for ILs, atleast for now.
I'll wait until more of these are made before changing it, it seems like a big waste of time too, especially considering i'm the only active person for that game.

As for combining the runs, nah, Dry and Wet are very different, IL-wise, so combining them would not be a good idea.

Again, thanks for all the help.

ILs:
It's not useful to make Sub-Categories for such a thing I guess, since it's only 4 Categories in total right now. If there should be more "Variables" like WET/DRY or something like that, I'ld pay off imo.

That's true, it's not that useful, still, i don't like how it looks right now though, i feel like it could look way better than how it looks right now...

As for Full Game, i'll do that, thanks 😃

Also, thanks for all the explanations, i was kinda lost about how to do subcategories to begin with, especially if the leaderboard weren't empty.

Thanks for the answers guys.

Basically what i want to do with http://www.speedrun.com/ides :

Full game runs:
Subcategories for difficulties (Easy, Medium and Hard), while keeping Any% and 100% as main categories.

ILs:
I'd like Clockwise and Counterclockwse as categories, while having DRY and WET as subcategories (thus deleting 2 main categories). As for Day and Night, i'd just forget these, they don't matter at all, and if you're going for a serious time it would be stupid to do ILs with the Night settings anyway.

I wouldn't mind trying to do that myself, but last time i tried i almost lost all the runs for the Boktai games, good thing i had the idea of opening all the times before changing anything so i could submit them again.

PS: As for super-mod, i actually am the super-mod of http://www.speedrun.com/ides , and, sadly, probably the only person actually putting times on it now. It's maybe pointless to change the leaderboard, but i have plans for it, plus a good relooking wouldn't hurt if it makes it look better.

Hellow !

I'd like to make some changes to a leaderboard, but i'm actually not sure about how i should do the changes.

Basically, i'd like http://www.speedrun.com/ides to look like http://www.speedrun.com/tsiiyh

The problem is, i've noticed that if i just add subcategories, all runs disappears and i cannot have access to all of them anymore (especially the ones that aren't from me). Also, in this case it's not just adding subcategories, but deleting some of the main categories also, and use subcategories to make it look better (atleast imo).

So yeah, any idea about how i should do that ?

While i am only a mod for http://www.speedrun.com/ides , i'd like this one and http://www.speedrun.com/Initial_DMountain_Vengeance grouped in the "Initial D" serie.

Thanks in advance.

Thread: [Suggestion] Times in milliseconds?

Started by: XelnaXelna

Personnaly i think 3 decimals is better. Probably because one of the games i play actually have 3 digits.
An option would definitly be nice though.

Thread: Thoughts on Movie Based Games?

Started by: Lance_Lance_

Personnaly, i think movie games are kinda "random".
Sometimes, it's garbage, but sometimes, it's great and innovative.

I think it really depends on who's doing the movie game, and what has been asked for the game by the producers / whoever it is.

Still, in general, imo they're mostly bad or barely decent. I mean, sure some of them aren't THAT bad, but they're not innovative either in any way, they're games... simplistic games.
