Yeah, we just recently got a pretty good speedrunning community built up for nrush over on SRL. You should come join, none of us are using the van and it seems like you've gotten WR IL times for almost all the story mode with the van so you could probably beat the WR RTA if you tried it a few times. Crehl also made a patcher to make the game to use an unofficial server just for us on SRL, which has been really helpful since the official ones were extremely slow. We can all compare our IL times now without worrying about anyone being able to put up hacked scores. We can give you the download link for the patcher in the IRC, it's probably not a good idea to link here publicly if we want to keep it private among ourselves.

Crehl gave the server and channel above, but if you're not as familiar with IRC, then you can just use the Mibbit Web Client: http://speedrunslive.com/channel/
And then just type "/join #nrush" once it loads and connects to the server.

EDIT: We also now have an IL leaderboard here. Please contact me on TwitchTV, YouTube, Reddit, or Steam to gain access to add your IL times. Include your email address in the message, it is required to give you editing permissions.

Hey all - figured I may as well make an account and start posting.

Link to the hardcore levels 13:14.18 - http://www.twitch.tv/crehl/c/3162625
Still far from optimal and I wouldn't be surprised to see a 12:45 before too long. This is only considering the default interceptor; I'm not so interested in the van (or any of the other vehicles, for that matter).

For Skirmisher and anyone else interested, there's an IRC channel me, Cali, and a few others have been using for a little while:

Channel: #nrush
Server: irc.speedrunslive.com

I have no idea how many people here are familiar with it, but SpeedRunsLive (SRL) is what we've been using to do races (and you can see the results of those here) - figured it was worth mentioning :)

Thanks for the tip, i might start practising this, i'm still planning on improving Story and Harcore. Probably next time i'll be able to stream. I'll probably also start doing races now i'm confident in myself :)

Edit : GOD DAMNIT, WR has been taken by Crehl with a whopping 13:14.18 yesterday.
Imma start working on taking it back tonight :D

Hey, thanks for the compliment :D
I'm not sure exactly how i can drive on the laser grid, do you have a video to show me how? I've fiddled around a bit but it's still not clear for me.

The trick is to line it up so the wheels touch the grid, but not the car itself. Here is one example I have of the technique in action.

Also, WORLD RECORD Hardcore Levels!

--------------------------------------------------------

Hardcore Levels

Old World Record : 13:39.54
New Record : 13:30.00
Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVcSxnJHL0Q
I've made quite a lot of mistakes though, but i'm really happy about it still!

Hey there! Vulzi again,

After quite a lot of training, i've finally beaten the World Record for Story Mode :

--------------------------------------------------------

Story Mode

Old World Record : 7:18.76
New Record : 7:16.42
Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGzqa5ps6qc
I think it's still possible to improve it by at least a second though.

--------------------------------------------------------

I think i'm going to focus on running hardcore levels now!

Hello there ladies and gentlemen from the NRush forums!
Just like Phenomega a bit above me, i'm new here and wanted to present to you my best times for the first two Old Levels :

--------------------------------------------------------

Old White Lightning

Old World Record : 0:59.94
New Record : 0:59.63
Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYBjP9_N3g8
Just some general jump optimizations, especially on the manual jumps of the stairs
Probably possible to win around 0.10 sec with some extreme jump precision and no slides

--------------------------------------------------------

Ancient Blue

Old World Record : 01:10:99
New Record : 01:10:11
Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XND_i25u-vo
Extremely little to no improvement possible, maybe better landings? Or better route.

--------------------------------------------------------

Hope to see you racing soon!
