when you beat the game you can look at your save file and it has the final time

I think?

DKC2 Any% - 1:31 (50%)

I didn't see anything explaining how to count the time after Screech's Sprint, since they don't tell you your time after you finish the game...so I turned on my stopwatch for K.Rool and added 3 minutes to my save time.

Definitely a lot of dying in this one, I know I can drop it by a lot...will try again soon. smile.gif

Is that single segment? At least I know this game won't be any longer than SM once I get it down.

Hah, no. I saved and left it a couple days and came back. I saved before some annoying levels or sections of levels.

The game only counts time when you're in a level.

Well that's what I get for not paying attention to my time before doing K.Rool lol. It's 1:27 on the save file right now.

Here's some notes for those of you running DKC2 like me (ie. not insane SDA world record holders). I'm bored which is why I'm bothering to type this.

In my last run, I did the following wrong that stand out:
- I didn't do a true single segment. I doubt anyone cares since my time wasn't special but I didn't have a few hours straight to sit down. (My Super Metroid run is the same) I will try again this weekend and actually do the whole thing in one go. For DKC2, I saved at the halfway point of the game and came back to it last night. You're welcome to take my times off for now if you want to make sure they're all actual single segment runs, Schala.
- I didn't use warp barrels. This will speed me up by about 5 minutes at least.
- I didn't use the speed booster on Rickety Race (go backwards at the beggining of the race). I died too much jumping too early at the high speed, so I just did it normally and didn't die at all. I might practice this one, as I used to be able to do it flawlessly. You can save maybe more than 30 seconds on this level by using the speed booster.
- If there's one place I could really save time, it would be in boss fights. I died twice on Kleaver, three times on Ghost Necky, and once on K.Rool.
- I need to relearn how to move around in honey. I did absolutely terrible in every hive level.

Big time savers from doing things well:
- Any level with Squawks I blew away. If you know how to really control him it's incredible how fast you can move. Let yourself sit on the brambles on the bottom, you won't get hurt. Hold down while flapping to hover better. Memory thing but fire before you see the enemies, especially on Screech's Sprint.
- Didn't die on Web Woods, Toxic Tower and Screech's Sprint, in my opinion the three toughest non-Lost World levels. Also, I finished Toxic Tower faster than I ever have, which is a big plus. I was so happy when I finished that level!


Since I'm really terrible at Mockball, I will probably concentrate on DKC2 for the next while.

I wouldn't mind a playthrough of dkc2 after all these years, and being able to whip through super samus world in a fucking half hour also has its appeal :> WE'LL SEE

IN SMB NEWS jadin beat almost all my world 1 times the first damn day he played, including dark world. That is somewhat unnerving; I got those times after like 3 weeks hahaha. Nice to have the competition!

See one thing I like about the speed runs in meat boy is that the longest levels in the game are still less than a minute long. I would die IRL if I had to repeatedly restart a run of some game that took like hours

In-game timer is up to 20 minutes or so faster than actual playtime. The fastest TAS is somewhere around 27 minutes or something, realtime?

haha wtf

Going through world 1 in meat boy and trying really hard to beat hood's scores. So far so good, except for one level where you're beating me by 3 hundredths of a second and I can't for the life of me shave off that much looool. Also delighted to find my score of 5.93 on 1-15 is only a dozen or so places behind CHICKENSTACK's score of 0.00, incidentally the SLOWEST 0.00 run in the whole world

So it's just like every other leaderboard that's online. I should check my score on Elevation on Bionic Commando:Rearmed. I was #1 like a month after the game came out and I was really really far ahead of everyone else. I'm guessing I'm like #870 now.

Who wants to speed run BCR Super Hard.

So you're saying you should be able to act like this to a forum administrator, or a teacher, or a police officer, or your own parents and get away with it. You're supposed to respect these folks.

If you or a friend has the Sailor Moon S (uncut) boxset, or any of the Sailor Moon movies (uncut), and would like to sell or trade them, please contact me!

The way I see it, me and Axem are lucky in that we have around 4 years to avoid becoming an utter fuckup like you. It's a nice feeling, being young.
