Eligible To Edit Files/Textures For Speedrunning?
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:07:48 PM »
I am a little curious here to ask if it'd be eligible or morally allowed for me to edit some textures and or other files n things around in the game to mayyyyybe make it a little bit easier.

As I am now, I'm starting to become quite swell enough at the game to where I don't need to look at my character to dodge, it becomes automatic for me. So because of this, I thought to make an easier crosshair to look at (as no offense, but the default one is too big and I don't like it <)'-')>). This is what the new crosshair that I made looks like:

In addition to this, I would like to try and make the bonus MissilesForSpecial_Dict things a littttle easier to catch when I'm zooming across the rooms n such. I haven't changed anything of it yet, so I'll wait depending on the responses for this.

Why not? It's just aesthetical changes. Alternate crosshairs would be nice, now that you mention it.
And even if it wasn't just graphic-related, as long as you're transparent about the modifications you used on a speedrun or similar, I think it's all right.
I recommend making backups of things you modify, so you can easily revert back and do tests. Apart from that, go wild!  >D

Ohhh yes yes I've learned the.. hard way.. of making sure to make a lot of backups for when I tool around with stuff. I'm sure Ima find more creative n neat things to make with these tiny changes though! ?? ? ? ? ??

Seems to be to be entirely ethical. :)
