Because it was relevant to the discussion in this topic.
Quote from: InkosiDeVinyl
Just a question.. Now we all know 1:16 on Dam SA doesn't exist because of the lag that will occur on the hut alarms. What about emolators? Are there any   lag at all? Then you can just shoot 5 bullets insanity while backing up. And pluggin in a N64 controller to the computer ofc.

bcks:  
  I think it gets like 1:12 or 1:14 or something, they shoot through the walls without opening most or any of the doors.
JacKs 1:14 is there now also.

Just a small question.. Lets say you have this brand new controller. You want it to be more weared down. Is there like a method to get it weared down in a very short time? Ofc you could just rub it around insanely, but doesn't that take ages?

Where exactly is one supposed to aim the mine throw on Surface 2 A?

Be precise, like how far to the right and how high ... don't be afraid to use fractions in eighths. lol

Also is detonation time important?

Anyone know of a reliable source for replacement thumbsticks? Im looking at VPgames.com and joystores.com one has refurbished and the other says used. I could just order and see if there any good but I thought I would ask first.

Thanks

I think I've gotten mine from VPgames before, not sure, it might've been different suppliers I bought from on Ebay, but they've generally been good, usually like new. You can always send them a message first asking for more detailed condition, and say you'll leave negative feedback if it's not what you expect; that is, if you're buying off Ebay.

Are any of you guys familiar with Natalya warping a bit in the first room in Control? She makes her first turn right when she's out the lift. Then just before she makes her 2nd. turn you wanna look down and strafe into the wall amidietly (If you strafe too far to the right she wont warp, or sometimes even being slower) You wanna look at her when she turns the 3rd. time, or just before she disapears (about 0.5 seconds after you hear the lift closes) and then quickly run up to her. The music will be 2-3 tenths better. I still dunno if she actually warps, but i don't see no reason why the music would be inacurate when you strafe into the wall around the 2nd. corner. The music doesn't get inacurate when you strafe into other places.

Im confused, you mean the turn she does to the computer? If so, if you turn and look at her she will turn it tighter. Been doing it like that since way back when I got 359 lol.

Yeah i think that's what she does! I dunno what you mean when you're saying "if you turn and look at her she will turn it tighter" I just strafe into the wall (The wall to the right of the 2nd. turn she mades) and then look at her exactly when she is turning (Yes, turning to the computer) Making it 358 speed without it is kinda annoying, but it's kinda easy with this strat.

Well the thing is if you strafe into a wall or look down I have noticed the music on Control may make it sound faster than in reality. Do you mean the actual turn AT the computer? Or the turn to the dark hall with the computer in it?

The turn to the dark hall. I don't think the music sounds faster than it really is cus if you strafe into other places the music will sound worse and she is easely noteable slower. I have even experienced her being 2 seconds slower lol. When you make her turn tighter AT the actual computer do you mean using lookdown like Cervone did on his 359? (And Bryan too i think)

You mean when you are looking up (while looking at her) right when she turns at the computer? Does it save like 1 tenth?

So what is the purpose of competition?  If you're always fighting then how could there ever be a winner?  I guess it lasts to whatever your countries average life span is.  Otherwise not everyone has time to spend the better half of it competing.

But there is one point that's irrefutable.  I could have charged people to play me GE multiplayer when they've been over.  Made .5k but others games I play might earn me 5K and there's one person making a million off poker.

So if I ultimate lose at one particular game I won't feel dissappointed. ;D

Who said the competetion will go on forever? One of them will eventually retire. You can't still get WR's when you're 60.

Hey folkes, I've ordered a new 64, and when I get it i'm going to be attempting to bring down my Facility PR's. However... I remember 49 being a perfect run for me and would love some advice on how to bring THIS down.

Well what i do is just do exactly like in the 45 vids because i'm a copy machine. Anyway.. Flawless strafing, fast turns (Mainly after the keycard guard and console) fast warps, use your mines properly, exit earliest possible = 45

I allready have an NTSC console. It's a PAL console i've ordered. The reason i'm not playing on my NTSC is because the arial lead is knackered (I used the same lead for PAL & NTSC)


And Inkosi I was kinda looking for tips that are less obvious.

I dont think you were going full speed once that entire run.

Start was slow, but extremely slow after stairs all the way to console press. lots of little strafe changes through out the run and such. thats what i observed. mostly going not full speed and alot of wide turns and such

0:11-0:13: Keep you thumb on two c buttons the entire run. Left strafe when you approach the guard.
0:14-0:16: The same. Right strafe to the entrance and change to left when approaching the console. You only want to go forward a split second to kill the guard that blocks the entrance.
0:20: Don't change to right strafe. Keep in left strafe.
0:22-0:24: Use two mines to boost yourself. Don't detonate too early or it will be a bad boost
0:35: You took a very wide turn here. Place the mine right on the edge of the wall and detonate right when you get past the guard. You'll get an awesome boost.

Hope it helps 47 took me quite some time, so it's all practice

You also even went past the keyguard at the start wich costs alot more time than it seems. I guess Marc and Alex pointed out the rest. I can easily see you getting 47 if you just try using the 45 strat, maybe even 46.

45 strat? Lol thats like saying "try the silo 102 strat" or "try the bunker 45 strat". It's not like everyone can just play the levels like the WR vids and cake x time. Although improving every little aspect with help can result in a few seconds cut.

Well actually nobody can't. You wont even get sub 50 on the very first time you play it even though you know the game and the levels layout well. It's all about improving second by second.

Have anybody experienced, that when you are too nervous your eyes get super blurry for a second? Just curious.. It happened on my 159 missed stairs when i was about to shoot the crate in the tunnel to boost myself. I played blind for that short moment, but luckely i hit the crate timed perfectly lol.

Change your avatar ffs Marc. I keep thinking tis Cervone

Anyway my nerves vary depending on the run. For example, if I have a great run on Silo my hands just tend to feel weak and my coordination  sort of lacks. But if I have a super insane run (bunker 2 46 with 2 sec lost on end door) it is like sometimes I forget how to even hold the controller and my mind just goes blank. Seriously i just turned and hit B at a random timing that run or something, I just could even think AT ALL. Ah well, not like 44 would have been great or anything...

Yeah nerves suck, I have real problems with them sometimes. My heart races and I get a little shaky I guess, or I'll blank out and do a random wrong button press kind of like Dave was talking about. I used to get really sweaty hands too, but now I rinse my hands in cold water/dry once an hour or so when I play which keeps them cool and dry...I do this even more often in multiplayer sessions and get teased for it in VA ha.

The blurry eyes thing kind of made me think of how sometimes when I get important calls at work like from an angry client, my throat gets all flemmy and I have to keep clearing it...really embarrassing.

I've somehow been able to control shaky hands through out the months, but my heart can go like when i'm running. Sometimes it can be good because you're really focused, but when you have to be accurate like the alarms on Dam, it sucks.
