  1. *Sighs* Alright, this is the final time I'm doing this run. Couldn't let DarkLeafNinja show me up haha. Enjoy.

    You know, I post in a speed run topic, and somehow it doesn't occur to me to actually list my times. They're mostly pretty sucky, but I might as well. I'm guessing we're only supposed to post the times we got in Rankings Attack, not in the main game, since you can use skills there. Just in case, I'll put my main game time in parentheses after the Ranking time if I had a better one there.

    Green Hill:
    Act 1: 1:07.24 (0:58.69)
    Act 2: 2:23.78

    Chemical Plant:
    Act 1: 1:17.83 (1:14.97)
    Act 2: 2:42.05 (2:41.99)

    Sky Sanctuary:
    Act 1: 3:17.92 (3:07.05)
    Act 2: 3:29.73 (2:53.42)

    Speed Highway:
    Act 1: 3:27.59 (2:56.20)
    Act 2: 3:18.20 (2:50.31)

    City Escape:
    Act 1: 2:30.03
    Act 2: 3:26.94 (3:17.93)

    Seaside Hill:
    Act 1: 3:00.94
    Act 2: 3:41.55 (3:28.86)

    Crisis City:
    Act 1: 3:59.58 (3:32.05)
    Act 2: 3:39.03 (3:09.76)

    Rooftop Run:
    Act 1: 4:07.16
    Act 2: 3:27.25

    Planet Wisp:
    Act 1: 5:23.03
    Act 2: 6:52.16
     
  3. Some bitch thought he could steal my first place in City Escape Act 1. I proved him wrong.

    I think I figured out a much easier way to get the same time (if not faster) as my complex bouncing method, which makes consistent speedruns of City Escape Act 1 much easier.

    Cinos Hedgean on XBL, best being a 1.49.13 on GH Act 2 but I've set a one shot at each time on each of the stages in the online time attack mode, but nothing too spectacular so far... Really temped to get the PC version instead.

    Have a wonky video of me doing 1.49.29 on the demo

    Updated again, and this time I finally managed to upload the rest of my times as well (as well as an update on a couple of acts I did before that I improved time-wise on).

    I now wonder how long it'll be before we see times that'll be pretty much unbeatable in the Retro Rankings.....eh, time will tell, right? :v:

    I beat my 0:49:14.

    0:48:64 now. I'm trying desperately to break into the top 100.


    0:47:24. I'm giving it a rest for now.

    Are we doing Bosses too? I just got 3:46 on Egg Dragoon Hard Mode.

    By the way, my Xbox Live Gamertag is NamoDyn. Steam is also NamoDyn but I don't have Generations on Steam yet.

    Decided not only to allow boss times to be included (since lolwhynot), but also decided to add in a thing for scores for the 30-second trials.

    Once I get home and can do so, I'll start covering scores that others have, as well as my own. Hey, could be fun to see who obliterates who in the score rankings. :v:

    Current best speed run:
    Planet Wisp Act 2: 4:07.95 (I might post a video of this run if I can get it onto my computer so I can edit it. Been running/recording the game on my brother's computer and the network between computers seems borked. It's like a 4gb file due to being raw so not sure if a free file host can deal with it)

    Currently number 2 on PC version leaderboards. I might be able to improve my time by a whole minute using a few tricks I found.

    I managed to get 00:51.68 on Green Hill Act 1... no idea how you people are getting times in the 40's.

    The top time for GHZ is 00:36.38, what the fuck?

    Working on my art!
    30 second trialing is fantastic yet for some reason I can't get good scores for the first 3 classic levels. I wonder why.

    And ya I don't get the 36:38 GHZ 1 either.

    BTW if you guys see a friend request from PJMan586, that is I. accept it so I can find your signposts.

    I have gotten 00.51.68 and beaten my previous best time of 00.55.63 but the leaderboards are still showing my slower time. Does it take a while to update or am I being screwed over?
     
  13. It takes a while, I get the same problem a lot.

    I've spent the past two hours trying to beat YOUR time, Goryuck, since you're the only person here who I have on PSN. I just got 00:49.38. Beat you by 0.11 seconds :P
     
  15. ...............Challenge Accepted.

    Edit: 00:48:64


    The ball's in your court now.

    I'm having fun with the 30-second trials.

    btw, Goryuck, how does it feel to have your score for Sky Sanctuary Zone act 2 be beaten by 5.2 points? :v:

    edit: also, beat yer score for Speed Highway act 2 by 5.6 points. Ya really need to step up yer A-game, dude.
     
  17. The same way you must feel as I beat it by 99.7 points :eng101:

    And beating Speed Highway Act 2 by 7.9 points!

    Alright then, I must throw down the figurative gauntlet then.

    Methinks it's time I show what I'm really made of and set myself in as high a score as I can for each and every single act.

    In other words, challenge accepted. :v:

    Sorry for double post, but I'm shaking from what I just did.

    I just beat Goryuck's Crisis City act 2 score by 19.6 points.

    You are a skilled man, Goryuck, but in the end I managed something better for once. :v:

    1:44.84, which brings me to 22nd worlwide on Speed Highway Act 2. :v: Fuck yeah.

    Seconding Demi's question, how the hell are you people doing Act 1 in under 50?
