Hey everyone! We had an idea of making these bi-monthly community round-ups here in order to let you guys know what’s going on around the community and keep you updated.
- After a long discussion and some voting on our Discord server, we’ve formed a new category for the Half-Life and Opposing Force leaderboards at speedrun.com. From now on you’ll be able to submit runs that use scripts! More details can be found in the categories’ rules.
- SourceRuns now has a couple of game servers that you can play on. The first one is a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server running KZTimer and kz_ maps. The other one is for a Half-Life mod Adrenaline Gamer. Both of these servers are located in Strasbourg, France.
- A LiveSplit Auto-Splitter has been released for Half-Life, Opposing Force, Blue Shift and Gunman Chronicles. This allows for automatic timer starting & stopping on game ending, as well as automatic splitting on every game chapter and level. For setup instructions, read the guide here.
