Following the most recent Bunnymod XT update, rules on our GoldSrc leaderboards regarding verification have been amended.
Before this update, demos were barely ever used for “RTA” speedruns (runs that use the loading of saves) because of the setup you had to use. Now, thanks to YaLTeR, you can very easily have your game automatically record demos for RTA speedruns with the new bxt_autorecord feature. Griffin has written up a nice guide on how to get set up with this new feature.
As we look to improve methods of verification, we’ve decided to implement demo recording as a requirement, regardless of whether you record/stream a video of your run or not. This provides moderators with more analysis options which will in turn make it easier for us to maintain integrity.
We are also now requiring runners to provide evidence of their “in-game time” (displayed by BXT’s timer), which means either recording a video/streaming your run, or providing a screenshot of the time after your run is completed (read Griffin’s guide on how to do this).
New rules as displayed on the leaderboards:
- Demo submission is required to verify all runs. Even if you decide to record/stream the run you will still need to submit all demos from when the timer starts to when the timer stops
- If you do not have video proof of the timer stopping you will need to include a screenshot of your final timer
