At the time of writing this, I am the sole runner of this game. As an attempt to showcase my progress and generate interest, I will be posting some of my accomplishments here.
First is the DoK Leaderboard page I created on www.speedrun.com. My goal is to make that a hub of information, once I have more to share and there are more players.
Secondly, I have been tracking my progress on BBI’s forums. If you wish to see more in depth explanations of how I’ve been improving, check it out here:
My first speedrun of the DoK campaign was completed in 3 hours, 4 mins, and 31 seconds. Right off the bat I wasn’t happy with this run because Kalash Site went horribly wrong among other sloppy mistakes. But everyone has to start somewhere.
Well over several month I have improved that time considerably. My last personal best beat the game almost 40 mins faster than my first run. It was finished in 2 hours, 24 mins, and 35 seconds. Again like all speedruns, it wasn’t perfect and there are places I know I can improve to probably lower my time by at least another min. Check it out below.
So overall I’m happy with my progress. I’ve also been glitch hunting in this game. I just made a bunch of threads in the Tech Support forum that you can check out. I also upload them to my YouTube channel. I’ve also been working on a guide. It will be a large document that contains all the strategies I’ve found and how to use them yourself. I’d also really like if someone with some experience using CheatEditor to help me out and develop a load-time remover plugin for LiveSplit for this game. That would cut out the load-times from this game and not make running this game hardware dependent to get a fast time.
I’ve also done whats called an IL (Individual Level) of Beladin Dune Sea. I was able to beat that mission in 6 mins and 37 seconds. I think it could go a little bit faster, but not a whole lot. I’m working on an IL for Khashar Approach next since that is also a very short mission. Check it out below:
Ragnarok and myself have agreed to do a speedrun race of this game on SRL in early November hopefully. Anyone is welcome to join. What will happen is we will set up a race using SRL, and viewers are able to watch our streams side-by-side to see who is in the lead and such. The race results will be recorded on SRL and future races will be tracked and compared across the entire platform. It will be really cool. I’ll add more details when there are available.
So whats up everyone? Anybody else interested in this sort of stuff?
