Any% Current Patch

From Speed Souls - A Dark Souls Speedrunning Wiki

Dark Souls III Any% Current Patch is a speedrun category in which the player tries to complete the game as fast as possible.
The difference to the normal Any% is that the TearDrop glitch, amongst others, is impossible here. This category requires App Ver. 1.13 or further.


Rules

  • There are no added restrictions on how the player completes the game, they must simply start a new character and beat the final boss as quickly as they can.
  • Glitches, skips and sequence breaks are all allowed. Using other programs to affect the game or editing the game code is not allowed.
  • Runs are measured on IGTIn-Game Time. When finishing, runners are required to at least show the IGTIn-Game Time in their submitted runs.
  • This category uses all available glitches on App ver. 1.13 or further.
  • You may not use savefiles during your runs. Using savefiles is common when practicing certain parts in a run but these are not counted as 'official' times.
  • Any% is a different category.
