Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

So there it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIqZ2ULDRZI I also improved secret level 1 run by more then 50secs, it was one of my oldest ...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

Since I wasn't really happy about my route, I made a bit painful decision to run it again. It brought some real frustration again, but I was rewarded at the end! Not only I saved 7-8 secs by new route, but also another 12-13 by better execution, so the final time is 4:33! Since I was low on shield i...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

If you met these robots there, it was rare situation. Never happened to me during speedrunning, but these robots like to roam. I know the level well and I know how many of each robots is there, so I'm actually quite sure if it is 100% run even before checking the replay, which I always do to make su...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

After many failed tries, after great tries lost by raoming secondary lifters running into mega/smart missile shot, or not getting cloak from enemy before reactor room, or some unexpected unlucky situation, or by stupid mistake by myself, when I was on a great shape etc., I finally managed to finish ...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

It would be quite fine, if robots don't roam. That is the biggest problem here. Especially all light drillers and some heavy drillers. And two of secondary lifters also likes to be out of position which means end of run, you can't spend time by finding them. My route triggers most of matcens, but it...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

I discussed this somewhere more than year ago. And it was one of reasons, why I decided to go for deathless speedruns.
I personally think it should be part of "deaths" category, but it feels kinda lame to not enter the exit.

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

I am sure individual levels should be done cold start. About secret levels, you have to play previous level, die before destroying reactor to set your weapons to default, then save it (unless you can do it first try :)). Two more things: Like in full game category, there should be a difficulty optio...

Re: Going Rambo on D1 level 6 (And other levels)

Hi, Phozon. Thanks. I though about it and also wrote a message to Spooty on youtube long time ago, but he didn't answer. I also did quite worthy IL collection on hotshot (no death), but I saw there is only full game category on speedrun.com.
Btw great record on trainee, I really like your run!

Didn't play for quite a time, but yesterday I turned Descent on again. Improved level 7 from 7:03 to 6:21. Still improvable, but that boss fight was close to perfect.

I understand you perfectly, I told it a few times in past, level 24 is best of the game. First tries are frustrating, then it become more and more fun.

My experience was similar. Levels 1-5 were quite easy. Then level 6 was way more problematic for me, but still playable. When I reached level 8 things changed a lot. I remember I gave up there and get a break. After some time I came back to the challenge and did it. Then level 9. I don't really reme...

So, level 25 is done. Lost about 5 seconds at the very end, because the last heavy driller was out of his position (that usually does not happen), which frustrates me a bit.

I DID IT! Nothing super fast, but this level is just impossible to YOLO everywhere on insane. I'm convinced 7:20 is still by far the best reached time.
