I usually just use warm water and soap every 2 hours or so. My hands will just be freezing for the next 30 minutes if i use cold water.

I sometimes keep a slightly damp wash cloth beside me. If I start getting too sweaty I just touch my hand to the cloth and keep playing.

As far as nerves go... just imagine how unfun it would be if your heart never raced when going for a time... although nerves has messed up many a warp for me!

hahaha, i have been waiting for this to come up for a long time now...

i actually play with weightlifting chalk-dust in a container next to me because i get pretty sweaty hands and they get pretty slick.  the chalk makes my turning so much tighter *that's what she said* and has been a lifesaver many times over...

When I speedrun, I make sure to dehydrate myself for 36 hours in advance of the speedrunning session.  That way I don't sweat at all.  It took me nearly 3 years to master this technique but it really works.  Don't drink ANYTHING during the 36 hours before your session

Lol i don't really get sweaty hands. A controller is just not very clean so i like to get that dirtyness out of my hands. My thumb wouldn't slide of the controller anyway, as i use the sides of my thumb

My hands usually start to sweat after 20 minutes but I'm used to playing with sweaty hands. I don't wash my hands until I end the playing session.

Why does Ryan have Frigate 00A 1:11 on the rankings when there's a 1:10 vid on Youtube. I know the 107 weren't legit, but it doesn't say anything about that on the 1:10 vid.

Well the 1:10 is also fake. I think he admitted to it and also people pointed out that for a brief moment you can see his best time is 1:11 for like 1 frame, or maybe that was on the 107, not sure.

Lol yeah the 110 is faked as well.  I dunno why everyone thought it was legit.  When I posted my faked PRs, I included that one, yet everyone seems to ignore it

How can I obtain Aztec - Objective A strat? It never happens to me   (I just obtained it once, on Agent).
Do I must to arrive fast to the place where Objective A completes, or it doesn't helps? Do I must to shot to a concrete place to enemies open the door?
Please, answer me... I think this strat is one of the only things I need (and completing Egypt with good records to me) to improve about 50 or 60 world positions...
This strat will help me a lot on this level, and I need completing Aztec to play on Egypt too.
Thanks.

Sorry, didn't understand your post quite well. Do you have problems getting the guards to open the glass door, or don't you know how to get Obj A completed?

The first thing. My guards are stupid or something, I think... They just opened the glass once, in my Agent PR.
Sorry for my bad English . This question is also hard to ask in Spanish to me (because of my expresion), so my translation to English is worse .

Glass only opens a small % of the time. The more guards you lure, the higher your chances however. But all WR runs do fastest possible lure, if your copying that technique theres less of a chance. try for 3 or 4 guard lure to boost your chances

Hi everyone again I have another doubt:
There are some stages (like Surface 2 - SA and 00A or Streets) where I need a greanade or a greanade launcher to improve my PR's, and an enemy shold give it to me, but there's no-one with a greanade launcher in Streets, and there isn't anyone with a greanade in Surface 2 neither (this one appeared only once to me: in my SA personal record). Is there any trick to make them appear or it just need to be patient and try a lot of times each stage? (I think I wrote everything ok, but my English isn't very good...).

just be patient.  it can take as long as 1-2 hours to get a grenade sometimes, but other times it can happen 3 or 4 times in 15 minutes.  just be patient and hope for the best!    also, is that a picture of you in your avatar?

Could someone post (or link me to) a strat for runway SA 23 ? When to start priming the grenades, when to release... Angles they are throw at ? Would be helpful, thanks.

Prime the first one as you travel halfway down the ramp.

  as soon as you get that boost, start priming.  Count to like 3.9 seconds, or whatever count you feel comfortable with, and release it on the ground.  Get a boost.  Do it again.  Immediately (after what is now your 3rd overall boost) start priming a nade for the battery throw.  Odds are you'll get guard boosted which times the throw perfectly and hopefully one more guard boost to the plane.  All this is an easy 23.

Not 1-2 secs more like 0.5. Val will see you earlier resulting in his message showing up earlier. That point right on the wall is the spot, that you can be seen earliest.

They strafe against the wall for a few seconds so Bond can leave at full speed. This is also done on Archives SA/00 at the safe, leaving Trev on Statue and a few other levels.

Am currently going for 1.57 on streets 00 but want to make sure i'm not screwing myself out of a chance at 1.56. I'm starting out with 2.2 until val then switching to 1.2. In doing so when I run into the wall I cannot turn smooth enough to make it in without hitting the right side of the entrance (example streets sa 1.57). Am wondering if going out of his view again negates the benefit of using 2.2 at the start?

Also just rewatched my 1.57 and noticed I didn't strafe into the wall for 0.5 seconds like you guys do, did more of a touch and go is this wrong?

The touch can work but he has to see you.  By staying like we do, you're making sure he sees you.  The touch is less consistent but if it works for you, go with it.

As far as the view thing... it doesn't matter.  From the moment Val sees you, he creates a circle of whatever radius you can go in and still talk to him.  It has nothing to do with his field of view.  You can go on the other side of walls and he'll talk, so as far as that goes you're fine.

I think it depends of the angle you are using. In my case I holded it 3 seconds. I hope this helps.

Marc Rutzou: When you said you are speedrunnig just a year: did you refer to you started playing GoldenEye a year ago or you started some time before but you started doing fast runs a year ago? Just for curiosity.

Where do I must to shot on Statue to complete the Objective B faster? I tried to shot to the people and to the wall, but I always failed the Objective.

I played it on and off from 1998-2003. Didn't play GE at all from 2003 until i got introduced to the elite in 2009 and began speedrunning it from there. I've just got introduced to Perfect Dark when i joined the elite, so that explains why i'm better at GE.

My personal situation is quite similar, but the contrary. I started playing Perfect Dark on 2005 or 2006 (I don't remember). When I completed it, I went for the cheats and on July or August - 2008, I found the-Elite.net. I started speeruning Perfect Dark ending 2008 and in 2009 I bought a GoldenEye. I played both games about 3-5 months and I had a 8 months break. Now I'm playing again both games again. My Perfect Dark times are much better than my GoldenEye times, but the difference of completing the game is about 3  or 4 years, because I completed Perfect Dark on 2006 or 2007, and I completed GoldenEye a month ago.

You have to shoot Trev to make him talk right away.  On SA and 00A you should shoot him right in the chest and he'll instantly talk.  However on Agent you need to get a limb hit because a chest shot will kill him.  So Agent is a lot harder to complete.  And also, if you're too close to him when you shoot he'll fail (and he'll also fail if you miss), so try to study the WR vids so you know where to stand.  You might also want to try raising the brightness on your TV if you're having trouble seeing Trev since that level is so dark.

Ok, thanks. I'll study the videos a bit and I'll try to obtain a good record.
Let A be a pizza of radius z and height a. Its volume is V_A = pi·(z^2)·a = pizza.
