It would have been fair, Octoinky, but I decided to take a chance and run, and the pres called security on me. Oh well, since then it hasn't happened (not on my 1:28)  so I'll consider it like a 1/1000 occurrance and not base it on anything.

Hehe, Air Force One is now officially my first 300 point level! Woo hoo! My 1:41 on PA was 1:41.10 too, and I got caught on a door. (I've since gotten 1:41 about five times :b ) I'm guessing as low as 1:38 is possible, but I tried for a while after that to no success. Oh well.

In just 2 days I've tied 2 world records!  I think I should do something else when I have no homework, my game clock jumped 8 hours...  I got :17 chicago, :57 CI and :28 war.  I consider :28 war a world record, considering we have no proof that it is possible.  Same with :10 duel, only one guy has :09 and I never even heard of him before it...  Wish me luck, I'm still after :06 SA.  I've been working on it for hours, it's so hard!  I feel it coming, maybe another WEEK and I will.

I'm fairly sure that 0:09 on PA is legit.  I'm not so sure about the 0:27 on WAR!... but that's been beaten to death.

Anyway, 1:34 on Rescue A.  Sorry Perfectdarklich, you were too slow updating! :rollin

I think :09 duel PA is very well possible, and as I try for :06 SA (7.11, arg!!) it becomes more and more reasonable to me.  BUt :27 war...you'd have to get shot in the back 500 times by your fellow maians with callistos to go that fast!  Oh well, although I would like to see my purple OOs on the :28 war as the record...

As much as I hate to admit it, :09 Duel PA is definitely possible...

Anyway, as for actual new records, I can say I just got a 2:29 on Crash Site PA, along with a 1:48 on SA to boot :)

Air Force One SA - 1:27 (sorry Infiltrater!)
Crash Site SA - 1:47 (sorry Paragon!)

Hmmm... maybe GohanDZ, Infiltrater, and Paragon can all form an "I Hate Snap" club.  Heck, they'd probably get half the Elite to join.  I'd probably join out of peer pressure. :)

BTW, Infiltrater, you said that on AF1 SA, the  cinema started for you at 0:49.  Obviously you lied, since the Pres doesn't call security after the cinema.  I guess what you actually meant was that the Pres finished his line extremely early; however, this is rather common.  It happens because you can skip the Pres' line accidentally while you're skipping Jo's.  It does NOT make the cinema start faster, because the Pres still has to go through all his gestures.

So you haven't really stumbled on a 5-second glitch.  Sorry. :p  

Anyway, my 1:27 AF1 was fluky as hell... I was just trying for 1:29!  I got the cinema to start just after 55 seconds, but I didn't even do very well at pushing the Pres.  I couldn't believe my luck.

Yeah, I wasn't lying, the cinema started extra early, but I didn't remember exactly how I flubbed that run. All I remember was that I used to screw up quite a few runs early by running and the pres calling security, so I just jumped to a conclusion that since I couldn't remember what happened, that probably was it. Little did I realize I wasn't using my brain! :)  But I wouldn't call it common or anything, it just was some sorta fluke glitch thing that I bet will never happen again anyway.

And Snap, you seem to be ruining quite a few of my good moods lately... ;)  If there is an "I hate Snap" club, I elect myself for the President and CEO. j/k :)

Let's see... that's how many records of mine you've broken or tied? Oh let's not count... I actually am in a semi-good mood now (having gotten a crappy 5:44 on Defection PA, but before it was 12:something! I also got 3:35 on villa PA). But I'm still King of AFO! *cringes as he will no doubt see "SD"s smattered across the AFO record row tomorrow*

Whew, I finally tied Sucrams Chicago SA time of 0:30.  That took way too friggin long.  No I can spend another day of hours trying to tie the crazy PA time.  

Jeez.

discombobulator--do you think the chicago levels are maxed out?

Also, this may have been mentioned before, but reading over some stuff that squareguru wrote it sounds faster:

Run to get the equipment first, then come back, throw the mine and now hope that some guards will blow the barrels for you that chased you from the beginning.  Now finish as normal, and maybe because you don't shoot the barrels yourself it would save a second?  Let me know what you think, or maybe it's just a bunch of BS and will never happen anyway

Hmmm...

I don't think that would save time.  I already shoot the barrels basically as I strafe.  I think PA can be improved to 0:30.  Hey sucram, instead of pausing slightly to watch the tracer bug on PA and turning around to do the bomb spy before getting the Equipment.  You can toss the bug and keep strafing toward the equipment.  Do the equipment before the bombspy.  I think this might save time.  I haven't really tried it yet.  It might though.

Congradulations on getting 30 Discombobulator.  Its kinda funny that it took you so long because after practicing on PA I tried SA and in just a few tries I got 30.;)   I think the max is 29, on one perfect run.  As for PA, I would have to agree with  Discombobulator that 30 is would be maxed.  Octoinky, I'm pretty sure that way would not save any time.  I actualy tried doing it that way and I couldn't even get under 35 seconds.  Discombobulator, I don't think it would help any.  I basically just strafe to the equipment without ever stopping.  I just don't get it until after I use the bomb spy.  Its just easier to do the bomb spy first.

Wheee, 2:19 on dD: Investigation, and I strangely did not even open the first door for the cleaning bot before the lasers.  I think if you do open the door, the bot is going slowly ;)

Not really...But luck is definitely involved with the bot in this level just like in Agent.  Target time for first set of lasers going down, 1:37...But that is weird because on Agent it only takes 42 more seconds on a great run to finish the level after that.  The only difference is that the second drone gun nails you while going for the last door every time.

Woo hoo!  A double post by me in the world records thread ;)   I just got a 2:24 on Crash Site PA on tape.  After looking at the run, I am really fast in some places, but made two dumb mistakes elsewhere.  For example, after "Objective 2: Complete" fades away after the escape pod, the timer is 00:30.  Later on though, I get stuck on one K7 guard while exiting the cave, and even get punched and go dizzy!  Other than that, I get stuck on a corner at one other place, but nothing major.  Well, good luck with this, Sucram :)

I see myself closing in on crash site A, but I don't know if I can get it.  I average a 1:34 but ended with a 1:32 once.  I also tied the <i>old</i> crash site SA...you've made another enemy snap ;)

Well, it took awhile, but I tied Snap's 2:33 on Rescue SA.

But the best run was my Pelagic II SA time of 2:08!  And that was without using the newest strategy for skipping two speeches like on Agent...It was really, really smooth and there were no obvious mistakes anywhere I think.

I haven't gotten snaps new trick to work yet.  I think the SA pelagic II time has improved 15 seconds in 2 weeks.  Do you think any better would be possible paragon?

I'm not Paragon, but better is easily possible.  Pelagic II SA will never be maxed out, guaranteed. There are just way too many random variables.

PII will definitely be a level that never reaches a "perfect" limit, but an inhuman limit.  Either way, neither of those two have been reached so far.

I just played for only like 15 minutes on Crash Site SA and got a 1:43 :)   Maybe I'm just better than I was like two months ago, because right now I can see a 1:40 on SA and maybe a 1:29 on A.  Must...Take...Control...of TV, parents using it to watch $%&*ing Olympics ;)

dang, 1:43??  I can't see where I'll improve my 1:49 more than a second MAX.  I still can't get agent below 1:32 either.  This is definitly my level :)

Back, and with that 1:29 on Crash Site Agent on tape :)

A trick I have discovered is how to take the bots out wayyy faster.  The only tricky thing is if Trent Easton will leave quickly.  When I get up to the first two bots, I throw a remote mine behind them both on the wall, but do not detonate it.  Then I throw a second mine to the far left of the other two bots.  Now I detonate both mines and hopefully kill all four bots at once while keeping the president in good health.  Finally, I find switching to Unarmed - Punch works best here, and slap Trent once and hope he leaves.  Oftentimes he will not, but when he did for me on my 1:29 run, he left at 00:51 or so.

As for target times, I can see the timer after the escape pod at 18.5 on Agent, and 30.0 on Special Agent on beautiful runs.  So I can see a 1:40 finish time on SA, but the bot trick is more difficult there because I always get toasted a little bit by the surrounding explosions, and fire damage is instant death a lot of times on the higher difficulties...I have yet to try it though (I got my 1:43 using the strategy for the bots in Snap's Agent video).

Tied Snap's 1:27 on AFO SA (and I didn't push the president at all, and I got 1:27.60 or so), and 1:39 on AFO PA. 1:39 certainly isn't maxed either... hehe, and I'm getting closer to that 57 on Agent... 58.25 today. :)  Snap, you took away my Air Base, so suck on that! Err... yeah. Umm... *walks away whistling with head down* ;)

Bulletproof glass can be destroyed with explosives.  Well maybe not all, but the one I am talking about can.  In Carrington Institute, there is a little glass railing thing.  You can't destroy it with bullets.  So in PA, you have the Devastator.  Shoot it at where you started.  Now, instead of strafing down the ramp downstairs, you can fall from where the glass was.  This cuts off seconds of time.  I know I can't explain it well, but there is some glass behind where you start.  If someone already does this then I am sorry I wasted your time.  If not, someone explain this better.

Yay...I got Carrington Villa Agent 1:17 on tape... five different times!!  ;)   Blast this level!  I know know that times of 1:15 are possible, but those final shocktroopers are so insanely random the other parts of the level become a mindless bore.  Many, many times have I activated the wind generator at :54, and even at :53! only to get screwed up with one of the final shocktrooper guards.  Let it be known, I will not rest until 1:16 is mine!!  *locks himself in room with PD*

Great job Paragon! Can you give us some pointer times? I just want to see what part I have to get faster on. Either the begining or the end with the guards. Anything would be great. Congrats again!

Hmm, let's see here, I've only watched my own video like 100 times... :)

First of all, you should be able to fall off the cliff in the beginning in under 10 seconds.  My fastest ever was like 9.25 I think, but it was only 9.80 or so on my 1:16 run.

Move into open area at :19.  Hit bottom of spiral stairs at high :28 or low :29.  Then after moving through the kitchen, down the stairs, through a door, down more stairs, and through another door it should be high :41 or low :42.

The key part is with activating the wind generator (well, it's really the shocktroopers, but this part is the most critical strafing area).  I right strafe into that area and hit the far panel.  Then without turning, I left strafe out and hit the second panel...On my 1:16 run I hit this panel from a mile away practically -- it is crazy.

After leaving I right strafe now to the wind generator and disarm a guard on the way there.  Then you can hit the panel on the generator at :53.  From then on I rarely check the timer, except after killing the first three shocktroopers and strafing back by the stairs I take a peek.  On the 1:16 run it is at 1:04.

So, I hope this is enough to help for now.  The critical areas for this level, in order, are:

1.) Killing shocktroopers at end
2.) Hitting two panels before wind generator
3.) Sniping guards in beginning
4.) Activating wind generator panel and spinning quickly
5.) Slipping through the first sliding door very fast
6.) Rarely changing strafe!
