Hello all


#1

Hey, I’m pseudonym (or pseudo for short). I’m 20 as of this post, from California. I first learned of SourceRuns from someone sending me a link to DWaHMoV, and I was fascinated (I can’t think of a better word) by how much you can break HL2. However, as a casual game I enjoyed Portal more than HL2, and started watching streams of that (and HL2, but not as much).

I was always interested in doing it myself, but I’m a chronic procrastinator, so 2 years after seeing DWaHMoV, I’ve finally gotten the Unpack and I’m learning Portal routes (partly from Blizik’s inbounds tutorial, partly from XeiZ’s tutorial videos).

I can’t really say “My PB is xx:xx.xx” because I’ve been having some issues with LiveSplit and thus haven’t bothered to do runs with it running, it’s definitely 20+ minutes but I know that I have a lot that I can improve on cough anything after 18 cough

tl;dr hi I’m Pseudo, semi-professional lurker, AMA

Welcome to SourceRuns. Do you stream on Twitch or plan to?


#3

Not as of yet? It’ll be here if I do, I’d want to fix my LiveSplit issues first though.


#4

Hello pseudonym! Welcome to SourceRuns.org!


#5

What are the livesplit issues you have?


#6

I haven’t been able to get it to not count loads. I figure there’s a decent chance of there being a thread somewhere that could help, but I haven’t done a whole lot of full runs so I haven’t gone and looked it up yet.

Welcome!

When you have sourcsplit installed, right click and choose Compare Against, Game Time.
Did you already try this?


#9

Well, yep that fixed it. Thanks! Sorry for the late reply, I was away from my computer for the weekend.

Cool to see a new portal runner. If you need tips or to learn about tricks i run oob (but know most inbounds routs) and will be happy to stop whatever im doing when im streaming to lend a hand.

my oob pb as it stands is 10:30 something. so i’d say im upper average.
