I believe that if REAL "speedrunning scientist" etc research is done to determine if sound effects off DOES save time, then we can look into altering the proof policy as needed to accommodate that insane meta. Otherwise, stick to what we know and keep sound on in your PRs. It would be criminal to have to backroll a train 58.

I turned it off because it made the laser feel smoother.

I'd like to see this tested and see if it can formally save time.

<notice the constant 30hz while sounds are off>

That was with just one drone gun - escalate by 1 billion % for each guard shooting at you and the laser hit being played twice a sec or so.

It's the same on streets, entering the RL sets with no sound = feels smoother.  :kappa:

it saving time or not should be irrelevant for the question of if no effects should be allowed imo (although the time save potential should be researched regardless). if using a capture card for some reason made you lose 1 frame, we would still require it to be ranked. there comes a point where the watchability/ability to confidently verify/enjoyment factor of a run declines too much to be worth it.

Very true. I guess I just want to point out that good discussion on the topic (if it ends up truly saving time) might be healthy and in-depth to see what we can do with it, if anything. I totally see your point.

point seems moot in a lookdown world. we've always gone to insane lengths because of our passion to cut time as much as we can. that's what we do and what we are good at. for me the proof policy about sound is more about not adding anything that isn't part of the run and keep it in its actual form. make music videos on the side.

I'd like to see how it compares in eg a Train Agent TAS with it on vs it off, both done optimally.

I agree with Grav it would be irrel if it saves time or not, we already went trough some good points to why there should be sound, among them the proof modding.

Also how shit would it be to have to play with sfx off? Think about it.

Was really hoping for 58. I guess the guards were just a bit too slow opening the last door.

Yeah, I kinda thought that was 58 when I got it. Watching it back it was a pretty slow run though, with amazing locks.

(8) https://youtu.be/h0Ck0lrNDow - I was certain this was 1:23
(9) https://youtu.be/4nECkFonBv4 - I was certain this was 1:25

My eye for a run must've been really off today. Though when I rewatch the runs I still think (9) should've been a clear 1:25. And (8) was definately very low (music seems to be slightly ahead or equal to Marc's 1:23?), Nat seemed a bit slow so I did a safe leave losing .2. Heartbreaker.

(10) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA1n9xnsFpI

(11 & 12) - 2 in 5 attempts (also got 1:25 on the 6th attempt):

Got a 1:50 locks fail the very next run. Was really hoping for two in a row, would've been pretty sick.

Silo Agent 1:00 (17)

Train SA 1:23 (2)

Train Agent 0:58 (6)
Train Agent 0:58 (7)
Train Agent 0:58 (8)

Shit locks on those 58s. Barely feel a difference in my gameplay after a long break on Train. 56 looks promising.
