SourceRuns Wiki


#1

We’ve figured a Wiki about speedrunning Valve’s games would be a pretty nice project.
After some hard work on it, we’ve decided to finally post about it on the forums.

I’m glad to present it you - THE SOURCERUNS WIKI.
You can reach it through the header menu or through the board redirect on the main page of the forums (nice try on clicking the text, hehe).

Most of the Wiki is yet to be done, most of stuff is still WIP. If you see something that shouldn’t be in that place, let Cameron:D know about it, so he might fix it some time.

We kindly ask every one of you to contribute in this project by writing an article, or two. You can write about everything speedrunning-related, as long as it’s about speedrunning or breaking Valve’s games.

Nice found guys


#3

What do you mean? We didn’t find anything there.


#4

I mean nice idea


#5

A few things:
-The English needs to be fixed
-Darkevil didn’t find flying in Engine 11+, Typical did years ago
-We should also have a page for each runner, and the works they’ve done and participated in, and what they have contributed to SourceRuns.

We should definitely add a player wiki similar to SDAs
http://speedrunwiki.com/Category:People
http://speeddemosarchive.com/quake/mkt.pl?profile

And I thought to maybe use some kind of interview template to make it easier/get more info. Inspired by this:
http://speeddemosarchive.com/quake/profiles/template.txt

The Quake profiles looks like this:

http://wiki.sourceruns.org/wiki/User:S

Hmm


#10

Nah, I’d make individual pages for people, and keep user pages as user pages (i.e. feel free to do whatever the hell you want with yours)


#11

In my opinion Someone should write some stuffs of Half-Life 1 (like object-boost, scientist skips, ecc.), not only stuffs of Portal or Half-Life 2


#12

Feel free, its a wiki, anyone can create end edit pages :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

Ok, I’ll write what I know…


#14

http://wiki.sourceruns.org/wiki/Half-Life_1_Tricks:

It’s not complete but for now the page includes 15 tricks


#15

Just a few things if you’re going to be making pages that cover something as big as Half-Life tricks.

A. Proper English is a necessity, don’t attempt this if you’re not fluent in it. We don’t want this to look unprofessional.

B. This is really messy, please learn formatting.

C. The difficulty thing needs to go, as the only applies to the person performing it.

D. Separate PS2 and PC. You’re the only one here who uses the PS2, so it doesn’t need to be on the same page.

E. What is this Oasiz stuff?

F. Some of these descriptions aren’t really that good, refer to the explanations in the HL2DQ Tricks List.


#16

Sorry, but I think the HL1 tricks page is worthless in my opinion. Whats the point of having a little page with a few tricks and short explanations, when you can create a page for EACH trick with better explanations and everything.


#17

Oasiz wrote some stuff for the Quad’SS,

btw No problems, I’m gonna delete this page


#18

The most difficult thing you’ve ever done in speedrunning?


#19

Making Half-Life single-segment in 51:01 was the hardest thing


#20

Improved, any more suggestions/ideas?
