I’m just getting started on speed running HL2 (new engine). I’m all set up with HL2, SourceUnpack, LiveSplit, etc., but I’m confused about the best way to use LiveSplit. I loaded up the splits by Gocnak at https://www.speedrun.com/hl2/resources, and they get triggered when I’m playing through the game, but I’d rather focus on small segments at a time and see how fast I can get them.
I tried creating some splits at the start of the game, e.g. get through the turnstile, get into the cage, get to “pick up that can”, etc., but when I play through again, they don’t get triggered automatically. Is that supposed to be possible?
Additionally, if I want to work through the whole game with Gocnak’s splits, can I resume a run later with the timer at the correct setting? Or does it all have to be in one go?
Thanks, sorry for the noob questions. Haven’t really managed to find a clear explanation of LiveSplit anywhere.
