You need to get the script verified by me, tbh. I have to ensure no essential details are missed out, which was the case in a handful of lores last year.

These things will always be a trade off between historical accuracy & completeness and time to market & somebody competent bothering at all. And Goose does a damn good job at publishing them with high quality, high frequency, high visibility, perfect narration and yet 99% accuracy & completeness. 100% would require a thing like speedrunhistory.wikia.com and large and competent editorial board. Maybe this could be a thing.

When Wouter removed his times in protest, not only did I "take" 2nd place, Boss and I each had 1:02 on 00A as WRs lol. Wouter had his 4s 0:58 untied back then.



What was the context of Wouter removing his times?  Anger at Boss or someone else not proving times?  (I'm not sure I'll be able to include this, but the screenshot helps a LOT if I do so thank you.)

June 9, 2004 - Wouter was PISSED we removed Steven Zwartjes' 1:31/2:03 and Control 00A 4:25 from the ranks ala Todd Rogers

Also what is the date this screenshot is from?

You need to get the script verified by me, tbh. I have to ensure no essential details are missed out, which was the case in a handful of lores last year.

Ace,

Here are my notes for this episode.  The vids linked are the ones I am going to show.  I have left out many times when someone tied the WR, and just shown the untied they followed up with (this happens 2 or 4 times on this level.)

PLEASE do let me know any pivotal information as most of the stuff I have about you is that you were an irrel 12 year old robot and everyone was mad when you unseated Illu's insane 54.

Ace, was your 54 00A untied WR streamed?  Is there a live highlight?

Episode 11  Jungle SA/00A LORE

Hello, welcome, introduce Lore

Show objectives, explain PAL/NTSC differences, explain level similarities & differences: 1) health, 2) ammo

      -tell story of Karl dying on a 100 00A pace, and being the first to go no BA on 00A
         (Karl himself was surprised he did this because he is a self professed scaredy cat on dying levels)
      - Karl would get Agent 55 UWR in July to complete untied sweep
      - 100/105 would remain untied for OVER A YEAR AND A HALF (VERY LONG back then)

WJ would get 58/102, December 2002... Boss would tie 102 00A Oct 12, 2003

Wouter Jansen, 00 Agent 58 (December 29, 2003) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZGZRAhTZ6Q   THE STORY BEGINS

so now the records are 58/58, Boss not too thrilled that Wouter just 4 sec untied their WJBB tied

skip ahead 1 month to show untied sweep: https://rankings.the-elite.net/goldeneye/past/2007/12/24 (Illu would get 51 A in December)

REALLY play up how 54 was the best run ever

Rayan Isran, Secret Agent 53 (June 12, 2008) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to66G39eKXs
Ace would tie 56 00A June 13, then Rayan Isran 00 Agent 55 (June 15, 2008) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-N_LwEY5r4

and just like that, Illu's glory, GONE, FUCKED, destroyed by a robotic kid... no fun or emotion or energy
talk about value of showmanship, people caring, me and others considered 54 to be the better run for YEARS

53 would remain untied through 2008, 2009, NOT A SINGLE JUNGLE WR IN 2009

2010, a man comes along... Marc Rutzou, 00 Agent 55 (April 21, 2010) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UldIW4CEl8

The strat comparison vids I made could potentially help highlight the differences/timesaves that were used in the later 53/54's:

Here are some comments on the more modern history from a famous rank 6 jungle runner!

  • 2007: I am not sure this is correct but I think so: Clemens got 57 00A as UWR but did not proof it for a long time because he thought the run was so bad he'd just quickly get 56 instead (11 years later, his PR reads 57). I remember when we got the new rankings interface, people urged him that he as the champ should link all 60 proof vids to his times page, but he refused to upload the 57 because he felt the run sucked so much (cba to search the forum posts). Although it seems AZ hijacked his plans though with an unauthorized upload.
  • 2008: 53 SA with the strat that Ace used (running backwards at ammo dump) is obviously super retarded and definitely better than 52 would be in 2018 imo. This is not only due to skill but also the ultra luckbox boost ratio.
  • 2010 or 2011: Marc dupes the 55 00A TWR many times which, I think, was in an attempt to get his first or second UWR ever.
  • 2012: Ace gets 54 00A UWR at the onset of the twitch hype. He uses a healthy new line to approach the drone in the cave after Xenia, which saves a lil time. I remember he tested a mine boost strat for that part in the same session, so I'm pretty sure it was streamed. He did the last two drones and the ammo dump in full speed, which I think is insane at the end of a great 00A run because that would never complete for me (the last GL shot goes into the void almost every time, also on PAL).
  • 2014: Illu gets 54 00A TWR and also does three quick GL shots in full speed at the end. Maybe Ace and Illu know some subtle detail that I don't, because this really would never complete for me. You should ask one of them about that.
  • 2014: Henrik discovers the new ending strat with the mine throw. It does not save time over Ace's and Illu's method, but because of the consistency problems outlined above, it is insanely helpful and also just feels super good to pull off.
  • 2014: Illu gets 53 SA TWR with *running Xenia*. A landmark achievement with an *insane* strat, and I think the only player to successfully pull off that move to this day (let alone getting the WR with it).
  • 2015: dsx's 56 00A is a notable fluke. :kappa:
  • 2017: A super cool yet inconsistent strat for safing two strafe changes (and thus quite some time) is proposed (VID). It's definitely an agent-only thing in practice, if even that, but should be noted when discussing the ultimate limits of the WRs. I think it's also the first documented use of 2.x on Jungle.
  • 2017: Wodahs gets both TWRs with 2.2 (?).
  • 2017: Luke's GL selfboost into ghost health to get the WR was great to witness during the Kapap 3 release.
  • General: I don't believe the rumour about a huge PAL advantage (minus surviving on 00A). This run in fact indicates that NTSC-J is fastest.
  • General: The question "is lower possible?" can clearly be answered YES. If all the top players would put in a lot of effort with 2.2 and running Xenia, I think even 2s cuts could happen.

Goose, excellent as always but you should never post the script the same morning (or night in your case) you plan to stream it. There was hardly any time for me to answer your questions and add anything if needed. This has been a recurring theme. Speedlores have become popular and it is crucial you don't leave out good information or spread incorrect information.

Be more organized - create a speedlore (private, perhaps) channel in your server and post your notes there.

Ace does have a point. It might be wise to make a lore channel with notes on your server indeed. It does seem common you post about any last questions the day before. Maybe your busy and just had the stuff ready but if you could even a few extra days buffer, it gives a higher chance for someone to say something.

It is true.  Problem is that I work under pressure so I often don't start to even put notes together until 1 or 2 days before the Lore.  I will at least try now to alert everyone a week in advance which level I'm doing, so people can post cool runs or interesting facts.

Also, the latest episode is UP now!

Goose, I came across your YouTube videos somehow recently and they brought me back here after a nearly 15-year hiatus. I’m amazed that not only do people still speed run GE and PD, but it hotter than ever. The stories you tell of the progression of time cuts are superb and surprisingly captivating. I hope you decide to cover some PD levels in the future. Please keep up the good work.

Hey Bizi! Yes, I saw your comment on the last lore video... meant to reply to it.  Pretty insane to think it's been 15 years since you last played... I remember you posted a handful of times in 2005-06 as I was just joining.  Cool to have you back around and it'll be interesting to see what you can do!

We *are* planning on doing Perfect Dark episodes this year... Karl will co-host me on those.  Always a bit more challenging to get two people's schedules to line up and get it done.  But hopefully we will do it within the next 2-3 weeks; and hopefully a few episodes throughout the year.

Oh and btw, I'm going to do Bunker 2 00 Agent as February's episode.... anyone can feel free to leave vids & facts in here!

Wouter's 1:07 was part of a massive unhoard in 2003, not entirely sure why he was hoarding (does he even remember?). I sent him my PD NTSC and in return I could get access to his secret AIM getfile folder with these untied records he had, I could pick ONE, and I picked that sweet B2 untied! (I wanna say it was a 2s cut from Boss's 1:09 at the time?). Anyway, always thought it was cool being the first to see the vid.

a few things that come to mind quickly:

- One of  if not The most technical level in the game (overall movement + shooting, combined with precise aiming , many objectives, lures, different types of doors, warp under pressure etc.)

- A space for players leading the pack to show off their stuff (Isran, Clemens, Rutzou)

- Isran getting i think it was 58? with 1.3?? which is absolutely insane even today  (correct me if i'm wrong)

- All of the innovation / Strategy development over time is remarkable. Henrik the biggest innovator here?

- Green tying 54 is pretty intense, good chance to do a bit of a deep dive on Ludovic's Elite Profile (preface to PD lore coming soon..)

- Alex Anderson should get some love and ppl will froth if you play his insane  dupes / fails




this is a really interesting level and one of the best we've got to really show how good the elite are at this game, and how difficult this game can really get.

also how much potential there still is for an ambitious player to get untieds.

Ace's Handy Notes:

- Wouter's 1:07 was last run to use the slow last camera strat (get close & aim)
- Boss had the level swept 24/50/106 in 2004, and the 106 was tied by yours truly in June 2006
- I broke the 1:16:00 barrier with 105 shortly after (like a few days?) after 3 more 106 dupes, first untied (if you exclude Train SA) and the run has an insane last warp
- Just 10 days later (so early July 2006) Boss invented the clipboard strat and got 104, 103 and then 101. I think the 101 was just a few minutes after the 103 according to his WR post.
- CuteAce went into depression after this
- The next activity at WR level was late Jan/early Feb 2007, about 7 months later. I had a handful of 101 fails, some 58s (though I didn't think they were legit), even a semi-legit 56 fail but again didn't think it was too legit.
- After I got 1:01 relatively quick I decided to keep going and got 58 the next day on a run where I did not even expect it... my whole family was in the room (one of those meetings :nesquik: ) and I wasn't really paying much attention to the run.. when I completed the run I was like 'cool a completion lets see what it is'... I was in shock & celebrated with the HCAID (healthy cute ace indian dance).. run was with 1.3 yes (and my last 1.3 PR until mid 2013!)
- Clemens ties 58 in early 2008, so my 3s untied would not last longer than a year (no surprise.. Clemens was dominating the game)
- After my inactivity in 2010 Marc/Clemens go for 57.. you might want to talk about the end of the DC/RI era and start of the DC/MR rivalry (with B2 00A, Dam 00A, etc) around this time
- my 56 had a missed warp (for no reason) if I got 55 I likely would have stopped, but it just so happened I got 54 live (I have a picture of the chat reaction too), the 54 is on an inferior system too (I had no JAP at that time)

Actually I was the one who told Boss about the clipboard strat. I was inspired by what I believe was an old Miikka TAS of Bunker 2 SA, where he used the normal WR strat but shot a bit before entering the room with the crates to lure the clipboard guy a bit closer. This made me think that perhaps he could be lured out further and on 00A we obviously had to go through this area twice so it made alot of sense. Found this old post of mine in which I described the strat ~10 hours before Boss posted his WRs, so it would've actually been possible for someone else to have beaten him to the punch.

Also the 3 minutes later was apparently 1:04 after 1:05 tie:

Henrik - do you have any information on theoretical/TAS strats?  Any videos?  I'd like to cover some examples of possible theoretical strats that could be used to get in the low 50s or high 40s.  Different routes through the Bunker that are pretty close in time, or might be faster, anything like that.

Any vids would be much appreciated!

Since we have to get both keys and do the lure on 00A, it kinda limits the routing possibilities. I think the TAS run showcases most of the theoretical strats:

1. Cell warp
2. Combined Safe key + Clipboard lure ("The impossible Bunker 2 00A strat")
3. Ducking to destroy 1st cam, and taking the outside route to mainframe room (and shooting 3rd cam from outside).
4. Luring safe key guard a bit closer.

The combined lure can also be accomplished by going back the same route you came from after the mainframe room:

https://youtu.be/5hTDRJN1QYw

Can't think of any others that would be worth mentioning.

Edit: Lol I just realized something that might make the "impossible" strat cake. To be continued in the strat topic...

Conclusion (read script)

Ace's comments:

Spoiler
- You may or may not want to mention that I had 4 106s before 105.
- My first untied being 105 is debtable. I had Train SA 141 before Henrik unveiled the new strat and his slew of untieds (I guess that technically doesn't count and mentioning 105 as my first untied would add some 'hype'?)
- You mentioned Clemens' 0:55 remained untied for over a year (it was only 9 months)
- Minor detail about my 0:54 - it was achived on June 18 not June 17 of 2013.
- About the 1.3 comment.. I meant by 2013 every other record on my timespage was done with 1.2. 0:58 was the only remaining 1.3 record that was still on my page.
- Do talk about about how 0:54 SHOULD have been tied earlier I guess (Alex several close calls, Marc 0:54 failed last cam, 0:53 clipboard, etc in 2014/2015/2016) and it was an Act of God that prevented them from getting it, similar to Facility 0:52..

The episode will begin in roughly 20 hours from this post!

Re: The Goldeneye Lore Series - Episode 13, Which Level?
« Reply #121 on: March 22, 2018, 07:39:39 pm »
Which level should I do for the next episode?  I haven't decided yet, and have been quite distracted with other projects.

I was thinking possibly all "Cradle," but I'd need to know stuff like the exact values of damage from ZMG, nades, Trev's health, etc.

I've also had Surface 1 SA in mind for a while, but it might be inappropriate to do such a snowy level just as we enter spring.

Any suggestions are welcome, and if there's a level you really want to see, this is a good chance.

I don't know if there is much interesting lore on Control, and I know the level is the longest out of all of the levels, but the idea of a possible Control skip is fascinating to me and I think covering the work that has been done to try and find it could make an interesting story on top of the WR progression. Granted I'm pretty new here but these lore episodes are the reason why I'm here now so I thought I'd mention my curiosity about this stage.

Egypt would be cool. It hasn't changed too much over the years and the three difficulties are nearly identical, so doing the trio could work.

Dam 00A would be EXCELLENT. Lots to talk about, such as Ace 1:58 controversy and false accusations by Clemens & his gang, Marc 1:55 quality & temporary LSU, basement strategy finally developed after 20 years and the Goose speedbully by Ace, Illu 1:59 and the amazing Banjo video, Marc/Clemens rivalry for 1:56, the YABT, etc. All of this coupled with the fact that it is one of the most popular levels to watch for viewers[1] would make for a very, very exciting video.

I'm saving Dam 00A for the Season 2 finale.

I'm also saving Control Agent as it's the best level to do during GDQ... can use the protect moments to read donations.

This really only leaves S1, S2, Statue, Archives, Cradle and Egypt.

I'm kind of saving S2 for Dusky to get a WR, or at least give him time to do so.  Archives is tricky because I absolutely *must* show Karl's Aqua video, so it'll be bad for Youtube viewing... but Archives is very viable actually.  Hmmm, Archives might be the simplest & make the most sense this month.

I definitely think it would be good to go the multi route with Archives, Cradle, or Egypt (I agree not appropriate to not do Control right now). While I do think Surface levels would be more appropriate for the Winter months, you did do Jungle a more appropriate Summer level in January. But I definitely at least agree on holding off S2 with Dusky's high potential for what he can do on the level.

But I think a multi difficulty with one of those 3 would work quite well.

Ok, now that I finally got another video out of the way, I'm going to focus on SpeedLore.  I have no choice but to do it in exactly 2 nights, so I have pretty much no time to prepare.

I am going to do CRADLE, all three difficulties.

I will show Agent, which really only involves WJ's 35, then GM 35, then a bunch of 35s by new players including Mouser's, which enraged Boss to go for 34.

SA/00A have their typical progression stories, culminating in the drone strat, and numerous failed quests for 35 00A until Karl got it.

I need to know the following:

- how much health does Trevelyan have on all three difficulties?
- how much damage does the ZMG do?
- how does Trev's body armour work in regards to explosions?
- how/when/who discovered the drone strategy to be viable? (I know myself and Bozon had it happen to us way back, but never turned into a viable, communicable strategy).

ANY information surrounding the Trevelyan kill and his health is paramount to this Lore, and with that simple information, I should be able to get this Lore ready to go for Friday night/Saturday morning.

I believe Trev's health is high enough that it requires 3 ZMG headshots on Agent, and whatever it is, is doubled for SA/00A. He's invincible until reaching one of his spots, can be hit once, and then goes invincible again, hence we do the double ZMG reload trick to do enough damage.

Trev's BA is such that he has to take 1 limb hit or better on Agent and 1 body hit on SA/00A to remove it all, and only then can he die to explosions. This is why we try to shoot him and have him burned by the drone simultaneously, and why on SA/00A, we would shoot him first, then nade him later (as seen in older runs and Boss's 00A 0:35). It's what makes the nade strat in the hut more difficult, especially with him running away.

The drone strat was known for a long time, but it appeared to be some magical, cosmic event, and was only known by Bozon and a handful of others. One day in Clemens' stream (I believe this was when he jokingly banned Boss when claiming some new Extraction Agent door warping ideas, lmao), the idea was brought up by someone and was discussed in depth by me, Randy, Wodahs, Spec, and others. Most of the findings were documented in this thread as the strategy progressed. Henrik later made a video getting into the technical details here.

The key to making the drone strat work was the idea of combining BA removal with the drone explosion simultaneously. I think the reason it went underlooked for so long is it's a far more difficult shot on SA/00A than on Agent (where we already had a Trev kill strat), the last bullet hitting the drone has to be far left enough for Trev to get hit by it, and it was fairly unknown overall.

Some other interesting videos:

Axel's wonky SA 0:39 as seen in your mysterious happenings video.
Sammy's SA 0:35 which was achieved while everyone was playing the drone strat, demonstrating how easy and underplayed Cradle 0:35s really were. There are probably more 0:35s with nades during the drone strat gold rush.
Jimbo's SA 0:34 which used the nade strat.
Marc's 00A 0:34 for some Rutzouvision / "aggressive audio" :nesquik:
Clemens also got completely screwed over in one of his 34 pace runs early on, but died going down the ramp. I can't find the video though.

You completely ignore the biggest issue with the level before the drone strat. Sure, it's easy to do the nade strat when you already know the drone strat. However, when you are getting 1 potential run every 30-60 mins it's a different story. You seem to be suggesting that nerves aren't a factor in this.

The irony is that nerves play the BIGGEST factor of all, in any run.

One more question though: How does the "nade" strat on SA/00A work then?  Or the suicide strat?  Like, does Trev just sit there and get damaged by two pulses of the explosion?  Why doesn't he go invincible after the first pulse?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aA2pkXjfiYs

- my 1st recorded run after 8 year hiatus
- great song / LCD (lol)
- watch the "credits" for some fun history

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJyDwnyKRoU

1st ever recorded trev drone kill (on agent)
- amazingly not 34 , 35.000000
- amazing how myself + the rest of the elite didnt take this and try it on SA / 00A for the untieds back in 2013!

For the record I had like 5 or 6 36’s on ooa before I got 35. It is really bad to play with that strat because most of the time trev doesnt die. Then you get back boosted entering the hut most of the time by the drone or guard. Then if you get through both of those obstacles you have a good chance of dying on the comp.

Anyone saying that the old strat was easy are looking at history with rose tinted glases and tbh are totally clueless.

Health: 17.0
Body Armor: 2.0

ZMG limb hit does 1.0 damage. Body does 2.0 and headshot 4.0. These values are doubled on Agent.

Quote
One more question though: How does the "nade" strat on SA/00A work then?

A single explosion pulse is enough to kill him without any previous damage, if it's close enough to remove all of his body armor. Normally the explosion does somewhere between 0.0 and 2.0 damage, but a close explosion can do more than 2.0 (dunno if a drone explosion is large enough to do that though).

Quote
Or the suicide strat?  Like, does Trev just sit there and get damaged by two pulses of the explosion?  Why doesn't he go invincible after the first pulse?

The suicide strat is quite interesting actually. I made a post/video about it here. Essentially, when your near the hut wall, Trev will be in a wierd state where he switches back and forth between running (in circles) and standing still. The invincibility flag is unset whenever he switches to standing still, so what can happen is that he gets hit by a pulse while running, becomes invincible, then switches to standing still, and becomes vulnerable again in time for the second pulse.

You may also want to briefly mention the possibility of Cradle 0:33 at the end of the speedlore, as it's inevitably going to happen sooner or later and is simply a matter of time. While Randy did experiment with a few possible strats for 0:33 that involved either shooting the console from the opposite side of the machine while running through the hut (mentioned here), or bouncing a grenade off the wall to destroy the console as you exit (mentioned here and here), the most viable strat for 0:33 proposed thus far seems to be Henrik's nade + drone kill strat (mentioned here). It essentially involves farming a grenade at the start of the level and then mixing it with a ZMG, using the ZMG to kill Trev via the drone method and then tossing the grenade over the machine to destroy the console as you run through the hut.

I know you're not crazy about TAS'ed emulator runs, but I made this proof of concept video a few days ago to demonstrate Henrik's strat being used in an actual run in order to show that Cradle 0:33 is definitely possible with it (also mentioned here). The run uses save states and rerecords, but I think it shows that Henrik's strat for Cradle 0:33 may not be as crazy as it sounds and is definitely doable on console with enough grinding.

A couple other interesting things you could look into if you feel you're low on content:

While explaining how annoying the older grenade strat was to grind, you could show the suicide strat as a decent alternative (although no longer useful with the drone strat). Here's a 0:43 by Ogran.

Cradle is the only level currently with easy WRs on all difficulties, which is why there are 23 people with the sweep. You can build off that a bit with the fact that you got both SA and 00A in the same night, and Andrew Wash (Learninglab) got the reverse sweep all in one night. Also the fact that lower-ranked players like Birdie and Sakuya (at the time) were two of the first to achieve 0:34s. Possibly the ugliest 0:34 with a nasty stuck at the end. You could use some of this to build off the idea of "is 0:33 possible?!"

After the drone strat was figured out, Cradle had one of the highest counts of WRs for any level on any year in history. There were more Cradle WRs in 2015 than all of 2003-2014 combined. See here.

Rich Noe got the first Agent 0:34 with one ZMG, which was really cool at the time, but kind of irrel at this point now, lol.

Part of Marc's unhoard to become champion included both Cradle 0:34s. Beforehand, it appeared Birdie had the "NTSC untied". :nesquik:

Is it really even a time-losing stuck? There's a spot that you can hit that triggers the end, there's a video, I think by Luke, where the level finished without going down at all.

From what I've gathered by TAS'ing the level, the trigger that stops the mission timer is ever so slightly below the hole in the floor (like a couple feet or so). It is possible to drop slightly and then jump back up, though (kind of like in Surface 1), so maybe that's what you're referring to.

That's definitely an interesting ending for sure. I'm guessing it was just a one-off anomaly kind of thing and not useful in practice?

EDIT: So I played around on Cradle a little and was able to trigger the fadeout countdown timer without actually dropping down through the hole (video of it here). This could explain Axel getting the ending while trying to pause out. I wasn't able to trigger the ending by simply hitting the outside corner of the hole like SGT RAGEQUIT did in his 34, though. He may have just lucked out and got a really high 34 despite the small stuck at the end.

I guess I should mention this too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9v2EJ6Y-AU

Not really viable but fun to speculate about. Can be done from various parts of the level. If only there was some spot where the hut remains unloaded, similar to the aztec black room glitch when you load too many rooms at the same time. Don't think there is though.

Thank you guys for all the help with Cradle information.  I think this is shaping up really well now.  Lore will be in about 23-24 hours from now on my Twitch stream.

Here are the NOTES for this episode.  Feel free to take another look and add ANYTHING else that pops into mind that I left out.  Or suggest any other good/funny/interesting Cradle run I don't have listed which could be shown:

CRADLE LORE NOTES

Hello, welcome, introduce Lore  (script)

Show objectives, talk about CRADLE, why we're doing all three difficulties

Start with Agent, "this is how most of us beat Cradle back in the day..."

Cory Hanson, Agent 203 (Dec 17, 2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDKHPBKfKwU
- explain "instances of damage"
Aaron Morgan, 00A 43 (Feb 14, 2015) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SoUw9_2lVU  (suicide strat)
- explain suicide strat (trev gets into a weird state where he goes between standing still + running in circles, throws nades randomly while spinning)

SUI Strat:
Icy - Today at 10:51 PM
when he's in one of his spots and you're within a certain range of him, he'll randomly hurl nades at you
LUKE (CELESTE) - Today at 10:52 PM
and then he tries to run / spin or something ?
Icy - Today at 10:52 PM
yeah, when he's unloaded, he changes states rapidly from running and spinning in circles

Already in 1999, people figured out you could kill Trev on the run

Crazily enough, my 37 was also a skip from 44.
