This guy is attempting an SA Speedrun

Recommended Posts

# ###########

http://speeddemosarchive.com/yabb/YaBB.pl?...09016715;start=

 

 

I'm planning to do a run of San Andreas, I reckon it'll be pushing the 7-hour limit very close, so any help regarding routes or shortcuts would be very much appreciated.

 

Second segment recorded just now - Ryder's three missions, in-game timer now at 00:39.

 

Watching them back on tape, I've noticed the video quality isn't that good again (and it  seems the VCR doesn't like to record loud noises either  )  , so I'm gonna purchase a capture card, and hopefully start recording in better quality once that turns up. Not gonna discard what I've done so far though, it's still very watchable 

 

Another progress update  -  3rd Segment finished now, 5 more missions, total time in-game now at 1:01. That puts me over halfway through Los Santos, and with most of the stupid minigame-style missions done 

 

Another progress update, just arrived in San Fierro, 2:40 on the in-game timer.

 

So what do you think? I think this may as well be the first SA speedrun.

(I'd like to see him do that one mission that takes you from SF to LS fast)

When he's done, he's obliged to upload the videos to that site for verification. Then we can all download.

Sounds cool. Hope my broadband comes back. Can't do sh*t with this dial up.

So he's trying to complete the story line missions in under seven hours?

 

That doesn't sound too difficult, hell, maybe I'll even try doing it.

Sounds very interesting. I'd like to see the video if he pulls this off.

 

Shame there's not much chance of many almost-impossible time-saving manuveurs like in the 'HL2-in-three-hours' video.

Just out of curiosity, is he using cheats?

Like the teleport codes and such?

 

Or just taking advantage of all the possibilities, like in VC when you could use a helicopter instead of a bike (After entering the elevator on a bike, of course.) to jump from rooftop to rooftop?

 

Either way it does sound interesting.

There cannot be any cheats used in any speedruns. Thus, there will be no cheats in this speedrun.

This sounds very appealing. Good luck to him! I know how hard it is to do one of these. My friend did one ages ago with GTA III. It took him literally hours. But, there aren't as many missions on III, so it's easier.

 

Make this page an update page reporting his progress and we'll throw a big silly hat contest if he wins. lol.gif

San Fierro finished off, now in Tierra Robada with a time of 4:28 in-game. Took longer than I expected really, mainly cuz I forgot that a few of the missions required travelling back to Angel Pine/Los Santos, plus having to "level up" lung capacity in order to be able to do "Amphibious Assault" was somewhat time consuming.

 

Thats the latest update as of Friday, April 15 2:05PM

I would be amazed if he could but there are quite a few time consuming missions that come up in the future, so we'll just have to wait and see.....

Well good luck to him! I have completed the storyline in 13 hours. But that is just beside the point.

To update again as well, now in Verdant Meadows, 4:55 in-game time, got all golds on the Pilot School, cuz I think the Hunter'll prove to be quite useful.

 

Like some people in that thread say, I think 7 hours is probably not possible, given the fact that there's probably gonna be an extra 20-30 mins of time added on for saving, loading, other stuff that the in-game timer doesn't record. Still, I'll carry on with it, see what time I can get, hopefully it'll still be short enough to be posted here.

That's crazy. I don't think I could play a game for 7 hours straight, big props to him if he does it.

Update Time 

 

Got my capture card working now, so I'm gonna go thru the videos of everything taped already and capture it before I continue with the rest of the run.

 

To start, the last bit of stuff I taped onto VCR just got captured, and I uploaded it to filefront.com as well (quality isn't great again, but thats cuz A - the quality was poor on the VCR and B - I'm not totally familar with how to capture yet  )

 

http://files.filefront.com/SEARCH/;3848126;;/fileinfo.html

 

^^ that's the link, 2 segments, 4 missions from the desert (1 - NOE, stowaway and Black Project, and 2 - Green Goo).

 

Any feedback about the video would be cool, especially if you know how to make it look better without increasing filesize 

 

latest update as of Sunday, April 24, 11:50 PM

the best way to improve the video quality is to re-encode it

with windows moviemaker 2, plenty of sizes to choose from there

 

sadly enough, clicking on the filefront download link gives an

error about an invalid download key..?
