Do you speedrun non-Sonic games?
« on: November 29, 2014, 05:40:55 AM »
(Not sure if this topic goes here)

Pretty much what the title says. I'm curious if people here tries to speedrun other games.

In my case is Mega Man X5 Any% category. it's quite interesting to do. I did a (horrible) X only run and my PB is 24:29(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qkd0ERphAKI). Major timesavers in this game are, destroy the colony with the Enigma Shot(5% rate of succes -_-),using Zero becuase he can literally rape bosses with SDC(slash-dash-cancel) and obtaining and using the Ultimate Armor because of the unlimited Nova Strike. After that it's just knowing the stages and boss patterns(wich after playing the game like 50 times you memorize). The biggest problem is (of course) the Enigma Shot and its randomness.

So in the end, do you speedrun other games or have an interest im doing it?

As my avatar might suggest, I'm into F-Zero. My main speedgame is F-Zero GX. Currently rank 20 on the Max Speed ladder. Might not sound like much, but the competition is really strong as some players have been playing for many years, whereas I only got into it about a year ago. It's mostly ILs though. For full game runs there's not as much competition.
If you're not sure why I mentioned "Max Speed ladder" specifically, that's because there's 3 different ladders (charts) on FZeroCentral. In GX you can adjust the acceleration/max speed of your machine before starting the race. 0% being highest acceleration, 100% being Max Speed. When you set your machine to 0%, it's possible to do Snaking with many machines. It allows you to go much faster (~2.5x the normal top speed) but it destroys your hands due to the button inputs required. Any long-time snaking player has some kind of permanent injury from it. As a result of that I choose to play on the Max Speed setting, where snaking is basically not possible.
GX has a lot of speed tech, could go further into it but I'll just leave it at this hehe

When it comes to Non-sonic games to speedrun. I'm spend the majority of my time doing metroid games, the main games that i will most likely be doing are metroid zero mission, super metroid, and prime 1. i also try to speedrun the unlimited mars route of blazblue. I'm a bit rusty at metroid because unlike sonic games you can't IL Metroid xD

Yes there's one game I speed run, and that would be a rather obscure game called Airfix Dogfighter. There's 2 campaigns that consist of 10 missions each, I've managed to beat both campaigns in less than 1 hour.

Well, of course. Sonic all the time can get a bit old :^)

I've done ILs for multiple non-Sonic games (as my Cyberscore profile shows). When it comes to Single Segment, that's a bit of a different story. I've done a little bit in Mega Man 10 Bass – Easy and did one joke run of Donkey Kong JR. Math, but that's about it.

I've also ran Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus in the past, but was never able to get a good enough run to upload.

Aside from sonic games I speedrun Dustforce at the moment. My run's obsolete by now though as there was an update that added a new overworld and some new levels, so I'll have plenty to do when I get back to it. The primary competition for Dustforce is also in ILs, but my main focus is Single Segment.

Used to also speedrun Rayman 3, but it actually became so broken that I stopped enjoying it. More and more finnicky glitches, less and less actual gameplay.

I've been involved with the open-source game Red Eclipse, an online FPS that has time trial courses as a sidequest. On the most recent version, I've made single-level videos for all the official TT levels, but the important thing about it being open source is I can make changes to the maps myself, and those changes have been officially accepted for the soon-to-be-released upcoming version. Needless to say, v1.5 is going to remove nonsensical routes like the one in that linked video.

Used to run VVVVVV back in the day. FieryBlizzard's runs on SDA are probably what got me really interested in the whole idea of pushing a game as far as possible. For sure, they're the reason I got the game myself. Yeah, I enjoyed it, and maybe I should come back to it sometime, but I'm never touching his 13:03 any% or 17:27 100% runs. I have no hope of completing No-Death Mode either; I suck at the Gravitron.

If I were better at NES games, I'd consider speedrunning those too. But alas, I haven't found the time to make it past World 8-2 of Super Mario Bros.

But really, full-game runs are a bit too much for me. I like ILs better.

When I was younger, I did IL speedruns of Goldeneye but nowhere near on a competitive level, just for fun.

I'm starting to plan out a full game speedrun for Magic Knight Rayearth for the Saturn, but I'm only in the early stages of route planning and starting to memorize dungeons right now.

I tried to do a speedrun of the level "SPECIAL 1-1" in Super Mario 3D land on a 3DS and did 31 "seconds". However, the record is much better than this, which convinces me I should never do speedruns. I suck too much at speedruning.

The only other game I speedruned is Donkey Kong Land on a true GBC. I finished the game in 38 minuts. (game time, not real time)

But I like to focus on a single game or two at a time. I'd need 900 days a year to get anything done at all ._.

Rockman X2, and also DuckTales Remastered. I was thinking of running Crash 2, but that speedrun is... a bit too demanding.

If I ever manage to get this DS modded for capture, I might run Mega Man ZX... But before ZX, I'm thinking of doing Rush Adventure full game runs.

I know there's a lot of IL's on YT and I know AdamAK has done a few campaign runs, but other than that I'm not sure. It's not exactly a popular speed game.

Kinda? Starcraft 2 is all about the efficiency and micro. AoM relies on funny strats to go fast. There's also a fairly decent amount of glitches with triggers. They're both RTSs so the general macro is similar
