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)

Thread: Speedrunning a PS1 game

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)

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

Thread: A question regarding emulators

I did, aparently "Unofficial emulation" is not allowed. What is that is that refering to using a ISO that doesn't belong to me?

Basically official emulation would be things like Virtual Console : it's technically emulation, however anyone can get it, and it was officially "made" by Nintendo.
PS1 / PS2 games you get from the PS Store on PS3 / PS4 also counts as official emulation.

Unofficial emulation is when you use emulators made by other people (for example emulators on PC in general, like Bizhawk, Gambatte, etc).
If you hack / mod the Wii menu, you can also use emulators that weren't made by Nintendo to play games, there would cound as unofficial emulation (afaik).

I think i explained that pretty badly, but, well, i'm bad at explaining things anyway.

this is unacceptable

They're not paid for this, they're doing it on their free time, and sadly, they probably have a life too

Also, reminder (from first post in this topic) :

Please keep in mind that using this thread is a last resort, in case the current moderators are not responding or refusing your help without justification. You should always start by asking the Super mods of a game/series as they are also able to add mods. Best way to contact game mods is probably through Twitter for now. Also try the game forums, many users get notifications when threads are created for games they follow.

Moderator inactivity doesn't apply until around 3 weeks, depending on other circumstances, and it is expected that you try to contact them (exceptions may be made if they have been offline ~3+ months.)

An admin or full mod will respond to your post when they review it; if there is no response, it hasn't been reviewed yet.

Thread: Are you happy with yourself?

Started by: CoopeZzCoopeZz

Probably not.

But i've decided a while ago to stop thinking about it.
Afterall i don't think knowing the answer to this will change anything.

As long as i'm living my life and doing what i want or feel is right, it doesn't matter, i suppose.

Thread: Emulators?

Started by: NightTopNightTop

You can use Emulators most of the time, however only specific ones (or specific versions) because of accuracy.
Also not every leaderboard allows runs done on emulators.

Below you can find an old topic about accurate emulators (pretty sure people still use most of these nowadays)

Hi

Well, if you want to record runs you'll need a capture card, wich one depends on wich console you plan on recording, so we need more info to help with that.

Otherwise for PC games, or if you want to record both the game and the timer, you'll need another program for it, i recommend OBS Studio, it does all that and you can also use it to stream (wich is actually the main feature i'd say).

As for the timer, if you want one on PC, you could go for LiveSplit, however if your pc can't handle it a good alternative is WSplit.
