It is a movie. I downloaded the .rar, expecting a much higher quality recording, but I was a little disappointed as it was the same quality as one can find on YouTube.

Very fast playthrough, though.

I was really disapointed by the quality of the DL too. But once he does the actual one, you will be able to watch the hole thing on high quality in one playing, no load/save in footage, they edit out(i think).

The YouTube videos don't complete the game. It stops in Blackshire after just getting Light and Dark magic.

It could have been done faster. A lot of time was spent on pointlessly using the mouse. Space Bar = Faster.
"Yes, but what about David Beckham and the magic mushroom?"

I quite agree. That was NOT fast. The guy needs to use more hotkeys, acessing inventory and perhaps not playing all those cutscenes? The idea of a speedrun is that you play the game as fast as possible, making virtually no allowances for anything that is optional or uses up even a few seconds. That includes cut scenes and using hotkeys.

Yeah, with hotkeys you can swap REALLY fast. If you know what they are you can use stuff really fast!

I kinda think his overall plan is abit unfeasible.

-Fewer spells needed. I still need Telekinesis, Town Portal, Lloyd's Beacon, Fly, Jump (for Silver Helm), Shrapmetal, and Armageddon. However, I do not need Poison Spray, Fire Blast, Blades (which one of my Druids was using last time in Tomb of VARN), or Implosion. I can avoid the Fire and Earth Guilds entirely.


That will take far too long. Too much horseshoe collecting and such.

Segment 3
-Fight to the Candelabra.
-Enter the next part and immediately cast Torch Light.
-Clean out the trapped chest in the area with all the sparks.
-Rescue Angela.
-When I reach the area where the path branches left and right, save.

Segment 4
-Fight through the dungeon until I reach the Spider Queen.
-Kill the Spider Queen and get her heart.
-Go further until I reach the treasure chest. Clean it out.
-Exit the dungeon and save as soon as I do.


What on earth is the point of Segment 4? Aren't the Spider Queen and rescue Angela quest optional? Time<experience/gold. Besides the rewards for those two quests aren't that great... perhaps I am wrong though. Maybe one of those quests is non optional.

^Both are optional. Rescuing angela gives you a reward of around 10 food.
Back from the dead? Maybe.

Exactly my point.

It's pointless.

Time>food, gold whatever.

Besides the reward is not all that great...
