Put your age completion times here. Here are the rules[R.4]:
1. You may ONLY use the standard Cyan MOULa client(no H-URU client or skydiving client)
2. No grey hat assistance
3. You must work alone except for when apsolulty required by an age.
4. You ages must be in the "default" stage when you start.
5. You MAY look at clues to solving an age BEFORE starting but this must be in-game, no walthoughts/hints.
5. You may use walthoughs/hint/clues. Looking for/at these during "speed runs" are not timed.
6. No exploiting glitches to get faster times. If you want to use "jumping"/"pysics" gliches you may submit a time stating that these glitches where used to get faster times. Your scores will go in a different leader board.
7. These rules may change as I fix any "issues", you may post times following an old set of rule if you include the revetion(R) of the rules that you followed. Please try and use the latest rules whenever you can.
8. When you post your times put the age name and time in the post.
9. Only post times in Build 918, when a new build comes along if something has changed that could effect times
I will make a new thread and "high score list".
10. Any times that look supushily too low will require proof(an explanation of how this was achieved will work) to added to the high score list.
11. Any ages that you visit appart form the age you are solving do not count toward your time and do not need to be reset.
12. Once I have some times for an age I will start posting "high scores" and "ranks" for that age. "high scores" are the lowest times and "ranks" are letter grades S, A, B, D. (based on the Sonic ranking system)
13. Timers should be started once you arrive in an age(after loading).
14. "Complestion" is acheived by getting to an ages finsishing Borah cave. If an age does not have a Borah cave then solving all of an ages puzzles and seeing all of the ages main feactures counts as "completion". Gathering the sparklies, relto pages and clothing is not requred BUT if you get a competive time and gather some of these items you will receive bonuse points!
15. The garden ages(red and green books) must be timed togeather and theey must be set to defualt togeather.(minus loading screens)

-SCORES-
Are now on the own thread.

Sounds interesting, I'll probably give it a try. The rules look pretty good, except for this one:

This one is not very clear and also hard to verify. For example, I have Teledahn completely memorized, except for the plates you have to push in the prison. How would you be able to difference between looking at a walkthrough, and me trying out all possible combinations? In the end it doesn't make any difference.
Oh, and I could theoretically have a walkthrough in form of a KI note.

Define "completion":

Journey cloths and pillar?
Relto pages too?
Relto pages and reward clothing as well?

11. Any ages that you visit appart form the age you are solving do not count toward your time and do not need to be reset.

So time spent in Teledahn does not count towards completion of Gahreesen?

Regarding Kadish Tolesa, in general, since the sparklies are readily available, does this mean aquiring that sparklie as well? This takes several more minutes

Define Start:

- Do you start at the linking book in the pillar in Relto? or...
- Do you start upon first entering the Age?

Define Finish:

- Are you finished when you first enter the Bahro Cave? or...
- Are you finished when you return the Pillars (second visit to the Bahro Cave)? or...
- Are you finished when you appear back at Relto after returning the Pillars?
- To finish, must you also gather all relto pages available and sparklies?

Sorry haven't checked the forms latelty.

I will update the rules to answer your questionts.

Also since some ducussions of times may involve spoilers this thread may work better in the "spoilers, hints and tips" section, so prehpase a mod could move it there. Thanks :)

That is correct, Teledahn also does not have to be reset. :) Also if you want to visit shapers office that does not count eiather. Lastly no loading times count either and net 6s also don't cont :LOL:

For the other posts I've modifed the rules based on people comments, thank you. Walthough are now allowed since dgelessus made a good point.

Not sure what your goal is.

Are you trying to set some sort of speed record for MOULa?

I don't think there's really much of a goal behind this. It is just in human nature that you compare and compete in a friendly manner. :)

Oh, and regarding a MOULa speed record - that is EXTREMELY hard. Best tactic is:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
  • Find a good day regarding pod portals
  • Do Er'cana and start baking the pellets
  • Rush all other single player ages, making breaks for the pods in between
  • Have a bunch of people do the garden ages, and come in just when they open the door
  • Do the pellet drop, get the code, etc.
  • ???
  • Profit, maybe?
That is obviously close to impossible. The chance of some sort of failure anywhere is just too high - MOULa is large and time consuming. If you wouldn't have the pod portals and the Er'cana pellets, you could obviously be faster. Oh, and you also have a minimum time of a few hours.

The "goal" is just to have fun trying to figure out the fastest way though an age.

I'll get this thing started by setting the bar (very low) for others to beat:

Cleft: 10:50 - I did collect both the Relto pages, but that's not what slowed me down - it was forgetting to get the first cloth and having to go back for it. :roll:

I did not bother with the Relto pages but had a bit of snafu on closing the door...I.E. the avvie didn't like the board leaning on the wall so it took a few seconds to kick it out of the way...lol

Cleft: 7:57

Edit---
Just tried again getting both the Relto pages and no hang-up on the door

Cleft: 8:16

'Yeesha' talks too long...lol

TIP: You don't have to listen to the speach, you can go off and do something else and come back latter.

Also I guess "rain cleft" is diffrent then cleft.

Not to be too picky, but I'd like my apostrophe. :wink:
But, seriously, shouldn't Charura's name appear before mine as she's currently the top entrant?
