PD needs a topic for this as well.

-some time ago whilst streaming on a full agent run, I heard a fucking FEMALE bodyguard in CI defense.

-also today I started up my game and it asked for language right away and couldnt find my file anymore. Then I restarted and it  was back again :)

Max forgot his PD cart at my place once. And when I was trying to identify the right cartridge the exact same thing happened to me. Then I just restarted and RedBull-file was there.  :)

yeah I guess the cart save glitch is just due to the cart being old. The female bodyguard yelling in CI defense is a complete mystery though

OK - READ THIS

so I decided to improve my Deep Sea PA for once and for all, after PRing on SA. Had a 5 hour session with no breaks whatsoever. Then after 5 hours I got a really good run, 320 pace (my PR is 333) then the game decided to GLITCH ON ME so I couldn't finish the stage anymore. I don't believe this has happened to anyone EVER before.

I'm not even angry at this, this is too troll to even be possible. The mayans were right. The world is going to end today. This video proves everything. Fuck my life.

Wrong, the same thing happened to me just 2 months ago (and thus probably to many others). I'm pretty sure it glitched for the same reason for me: Pulling out the backup disk next to Dr Carrol at the same time the last blond dies or a similar timing issue.

Not really new, I had a run with that glitch on my proof tape back in 2006 or so.  It's pretty rare though, must be a frame-precise glitch or something.

This are some of the strange things have happened to me:

- Defection - I went throw the level "calling" all the guards. Then I did go to the top of the level. I glitched to fall into the big cylinder at the beggining. There was a guard in there.

- Defection - I was doing a PA co-op with my brother. We were on the floor where a stupid guy recieves a phone call. Then we were hit. We turned, and we saw a strange thing... There was a guard on the platform out of the building.

- Investigation - I was doing a LTK run going for a first completion. When I arrived to the lasers zone I decided to wait for that stupid slow bot. I waited him for some minutes, but nothing... Then I came back to see where it was... Well, this is what I saw:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XH8sd78HMk&

- Infiltration - I was playing SA. I did throw the bug to the antenna. The bug clearly was on the antenna, but the objective was failed.

- Air Force One - This has happened many times to me. At the beginning on SA or PA. I was entering to the lift. Then I got stuck at the door and I suddenly fell to anywhere and died.

- Crash Site - On PA, after killing the clone, you have to run on a ramp to arrive to the place where the president is. On that ramp, I suddenly fell to anywhere and died.

- Carrington Institute - First time I reached the target time I did 1:43. On the green screen after the level there was 1:43. But when I went to the main menu I found that my "PR" was 1:44.

- Skedar Ruins - I have managed to play 84 consecutive games with bad pilars. Then I got 1 run with good pilars and after that, another 27 with bad pilars... Well, am I doing something wrong? o_O

This is the most strange one:
- Skedar Ruins - I was playing a counter-operative vs my young brother. He was not Mr Blonde... He was a Skedar o_O... Well, I don't know if this has ever hapenned to anyone, but I have never managed to get it again. I was without words when I saw it.


Well, that's all for now. I have seen more strange things, but I don't remember now. Sorry for my bad English.

Yeah, you aren't doing anything wrong, Skedar Ruins just sucks. The locations are random.

About Infiltration: you have to watch the bug land on the antenna, otherwise the objective won't complete. Did you use the "throw it from far away" strat?

About the infinite Dragon glitch: well, I just suck at it then, lol. I think I only got that once.

I once had the perma spinning bot too. I think it was near that moment-of-truth door (Agent). I have a vid somewhere if people are interested.

Here's some Skedar pillar math:
http://mathurl.com/blhwpe3
http://mathurl.com/d9mpcph

This is assuming that the random samples are independently drawn, which is doubtful. Many people (including me) think the RNG can get stuck or biased. Otherwise some things that happened to players would be close to impossible, like no Doak for 4 hours, ~15 bad cinemas in a row on Bunker 2 and so on. Your 84 pillars fall into this category, because it would be highly improbable with an ideal RNG. A console reset or starting a different level might help to reset things if you get super bad luck.

1) Which is the moment-of-truth door at Investigation? The one before the lasers or something?

2) Oh well, that was funny. I'm (well, I'll be as I finish the grade) Mathematician, and I had calculated those probabilities, but I didn't think anyone else would calculate them too, haha :D.

3) Yes, I think so... Sometimes I have had things like 7 or 8 consecutive bad cinemas on Dam, some hours (maybe not 4, but enough to stop playing the level) without Dr Doak, 6 consecutive tries with the exact same bad pilars selection at Skedar Ruins, etc. Well, I get bad luck many times at PD/GE, so the 84 bad pilars weren't very strange to me, but you're right, I should try to reset the RNG when this happens again... Thanks for the advice ;).

Today I was playing Combat Simulator.
Scenario: King of the Hill
Mobile Hill and 25sec. per point
Arena: Random
a team of normal and hard simulants against me.

Then I started a new round and the arena was AREA 52.
I spawned directly at the beginning of the game in the 'Hill-Zone'
and the 'Hill-Timer' started counting down from about 8 SEC (!!!) NOT 25!  :v

it was weird, got the point and after that everything went back to normal.
never saw this happen before. (and I'm playing quite a lot Multiplayer (Rank: 9 professional) )

So yeah, suddenly objective 1 was complete and the speech began!!!!

And I got it even TWICE IN 15 MINUTES!! or so.
I'll upload a video later. I might highlight the whole session on twitch.

Yeah it's actually slower because then you can't watch the "conspirators" cinema.

I'm 100% positive there IS some sort of way to use this to our advantage, but it would probably take sockfolder-esque amounts of programming research efforts.

Was doing Pelagic II, i ended up getting boosed while strafing down the spiral stairs in the power core room and i guess the boost happened near the end of the stairs. I fell through the floor and ended up beneath the power core with guards trying to shoot me and immense amount of lag every where. I didnt die and there was no way out. I'll post a vid of me under the core, I wish i was streaming at the time it happened.

Not sure if this is normal, but when I did my ER run on Agent, Elvis said his Pelagic II lines right at the end of Attack Ship. He did it in my practice run too, right before the final [fast] lift. I don't think I have ever got that before, but maybe it is because normally I am too fast for Elvis....

The "I'll secure the perimeter" one? Yeah, they recycled that line in Attack Ship. Happens every run if you wait for him to get there, but 99% of the time we don't do that, so...  :p

If it can be done consistently, it'd be very useful. While it would probably be slower than the WR strat, it would be great for consistency for mid-level speedruns and RTA.

that's interesting. Current WR strat on PA actually involves luring a guard to open this door for you. If you could get it opened by shooting through the wall, that could seriously save some time.

But then again it looks like a one out of million thing plus it hasnt even been tested on N64 yet :D

nice find nevertheless

I spent half an hour trying to dupe it on N64, but couldn't get it. That obviously doesn't prove that it's impossible, but it's strong enough evidence that it wouldn't be reliable for speedrunning.

Cool find though!

I would try shooting a Super Dragon grenade through instead of normal rounds to see if you could blow the console up without opening the door.

Very cool! That certainly opens up alot of possibilities.

My guess is you hit the shot right at the seam between two collision triangles. If so, it's just a matter of precision and could be done virtually anywhere in the game (assuming this isn't a special case where the triangles have been placed further apart than normal). Not sure if you need X-Ray to keep the room loaded though, might just pass through everything otherwise.

Still just guesswork though, i'll bring up the emulator and see if i can confirm it.
