I'd like to see how you managed 2:06 in Framed. That's fast.
Yarr
I've uploaded it here. It could be improved I think. Tell me what's the difference between your run and mine.
Oh, so you're buying from the store after all? My route is the same but on hard I have to pick the locks to the two offices, the key upstairs is on a different guard, there's a guard behind the desk before the vault and I take some loot in the vault for the next missions. Also you don't have to open the gate when you leave, the mission completes when you touch the gate.

Yes, I'm buying from the store, but I'm not collecting extra loot to buy the equipment. For example, I'm not taking any loot in mission 12 to buy stuff in mission 13, at least not when I'm recording.

I wonder if thid would be allowed though...
I dunno about that. My runs were congrugent with each other, so I used only the loot I got in my runs. Getting extra loot, like in framed, would be a part of designing the run as a whole.

I'm going to stop working on this momentarily because I'm hunting a bounty for another game right now.

and what if someone pays you 200$ for keep working on Thief 2?
or 300 Bucks for Stalker STCS
xD
(no iam not paying via paypal, it sucks balls)
Yarr
Heh, I was going to run PoP:T2T for the $200 bounty but using keyboard + mouse really sucks, so I have to get a gamepad first. It would be great if you'd offer a bounty, but I'm sure they're not using dollars in Germany. Grin  Btw, I live in the Netherlands.
unemployed Dragon
aye but i still have 300 US-$ from my last visit :p
Yarr
You can't put dollars on your bank account can you? I think you'd have to exchange it for euros first. Is it possible to transfer between bank accounts from different countries?
unemployed Dragon
sure i've done this a few times ago, but we had "Deutsche Mark" back then :p
but lets stay on topic!

K, I got 3:22 on Blackmail using a completely different route. I may get faster times by picking up loot in other places, I'm testing which combinations are the fastest.

Edit: if you run around the pool with some guards chasing you they'll drop in one by one and die.

After

Edit: I got exactly 3 minutes Roll Eyes

I'm now going in through the front gate and exit the same way. For some strange reason when I got back the gate was closed although I had opened it when I entered. This doesn't always happen, so I should be able to go below 3 minutes.

Edit: 2:58. If you're really offering a bounty, you should post it here to make it official.

Edit: new times: mission 2 in 2:15, 3 in 2:03, 4 in 2:14 and 6 in 3:40. You can now see in the table in the first post which items I have bought in each mission.

@Dreadi: what's your route in Eavesdropping? I've managed to get 9:22 using the following route:

- Get inside the chapel with speed potion, get all the loot and the key at the pulpit and grab the tiara. (290 loot)
- Use invisibility potion to escape to the catacombs, lock needs to be picked.
- Grab hammer and necklace and exit through the other door, lock needs to be picked. (275 loot)
- Rush through the workshop with a speed potion and make the impression. Use invisibility potion to escape to the anteroom, grabbing the small statue under the stairs on the way. (15 loot)
- Listen to the coversation.
- Exit to the east and grab the two hammers on the graves. Get another hammer near a sarcophagus to the north. (225 loot)
- Put the key back in place and rush to the starting point with a speed potion. Total loot: 805 of the requireed 800

Edit: I've managed to get 9:06 using a different route. Instead of going into the catacombs, I get 365 loot by entering the church at the west tower with a rope arrow and raiding Karras' office. This also saves me from getting one hammer near the sarcophagus.

Edit: It seems that the game clock is affected by the framerate, the game runs faster but the timer adjusts to this. However, the sounds do not play any faster. While I was testing this mission without recording (at 85 Hz), I got 9:06. I've just tested the same route while recording at 30 fps and I got 7:50

All of my mission times are world records afaik, so it's up for verification. I even beat the old Soulforge record, which surprises me as the old record was achieved with a permanent speed potion effect bug.
unemployed Dragon
I'd like to verify. What exactly do I have to do in order to verify your speedrun?
Timing? Watching GLitches and veryfy them to work without cheating?
What about Tools which assist?
From what point to which point to measure the time?
...
and all those questions.
Yarr
Stuff like that yes, but we don't use tools around here. Also, the runner isn't supposed to know who the verifiers are as because I could bribe you or something like that. You'll have to contact mikwuyma, more info here

Oh, and Return to Na Pali is also listed in the verification list, so someone is trying to beat your record. Wink

Good, Iam interested what tricks and glitches other people can still find in the game.
But I've started a good time on that stand alone-addon Return to Napali with 26 mins.
What kind is this run?
A money run like http://speeddemosarchive.com/ThiefDarkProject.html ?
Or a normal segmented run?
Yarr
Money money money. Individual missions with items purchased. I'm almost done putting all of the missions on YouTube: playlist.
Nice speedrun indeed, I love the fact that you're using so many glitches. Mission 6 and 12 were just hilarious Grin

At the moment nothing seems to work, Youtube is extreme slow, keepvid doesnt even load... etc.
All I could grab is from running interference till tracing. Then any site from USA refused to load at all.

EDIT: okay YT and keepvid are online again, and i can enjoy the run now Smiley

EDIT:
wow youve totally rocked first city bank and trust
same to framed, so cool shortcuts and excessive usage of available inventory items and weapons to run and break thru the levels.
same for blood trail,cool speedpotion and slowfall combo
Vae Victus!
Khem, you don't have to watch any YT vids to verify... yet you have to tell of veryfing to noone here in public...

Pity, the game still has no(t enough) verifiers... (people! contribute!)
