I personally think that live TASing is boring.

Perhaps a live explanation of an existing TAS would be more fast paced than the inial trial and error. Personally I'd love to get an insight into how BXT scripting and such works because I have no idea where to start currently.

I'd love to take part in this. I run Portal glitchless and Portal 2 singleplayer with glitches.


Sadly, I'm not even close to a world record, but I'd still love to take part in this.

Add They Hunger part 1 to the Goldsrc list!! Quad done that awesome 5 min run. Saw someone talking about doing a sub 4 one as well, reckon that's quite do-able. (not by me lmao but someone good)

Neither Portal (Glitchless) or Portal 2 SP have been submitted yet, so why not submit them? I presume we'll usually pick the best players who've submitted from each game but the more submissions the better, especially if nobody submits those games/categories.

LynnWicked submitted They Hunger Episodes 1-3.

Both questions are answered in the original post:

feel free to sign up here with your availability

We started to compile a list of people that we know run certain games.

That list is not the submissions list, it is just a list of suggestions for who we know run certain games, so none of those are confirmed.

Do we have a schedule yet for SR Marathon ?
Also, will anyone do the TAS-SPT showcase ?

I think for the tas part we're gonna showcase renders. Both Source and GoldSrc, we'll pick something.

I would quite enjoy a mass portal race, so i'm on board with it.

According to Laffer curve, there is a french famous idiom that says "Too much tax kill the tax".
According to that french idiom, "Too much Portal races kill the races"
According to the leaderboards, around 250+ person run (more or less "speedrunning") Portal.
If we allow everyone to race, then I can bring a loooooooooot of french people who does 30 minutes Inbounds by try harding.
Thus, I would be really enthusiastic to watch NoirCat, Jukspa, BiiWix & Fnzzy playing live and the reason why I don't want to watch the guy who called Guiness World Record Book for his 34 minutes run .
Finally, I want to add that's my opinion and my opinion only, but you can't do a mass race for that kind of event.
Maybe multiple Portal races with different levels and stuffs, I don't know, ask Exe.

I think Portal races are pretty bad in general since the game is pretty short and if it's a race the commentary is going to be more about the race than the tricks used and you're already short on time to explain things. So if you haven't seen Portal runs before you have no idea what's happening. In any game races can be fun if you're playing, but they are pretty bad to watch. Usually one guy gets the lead early and then you just watch the guy who's in the lead on a smaller screen. Of course there's some exceptions, but for every exciting race there's dozens of really boring ones.

A mass race would be just a joke since if there's more than 4 people playing you actually can't see anything.

EDIT: Spelling
