That's good to know. Do you know a good place for a savepoint just before the speed run starts?

I save just before I destroy the last generator, so every time you need to restart just begin from destroying it and watch the cutscene.

*sigh* I'm taking a break from the transformer speed run for now. My timing with the traps are way off, usually with the slamming wall...

I also had a bad memory with those walls. My experience is that when I hear/see the walls immediately in front of me slam, press LB/RB and run forward till there are two walls slamming and blocking the way, stop for a brief moment (0.2 sec maybe) and release LB/RB just to reload the shadow meter. Right after that (those walls shall be open for now), LB/RB + run again to the end.

Thank you! That tip helped me get through those damn walls and I got the achievement

So can someone verify once and for all where both speed runs start, and where they both end?

I finally unlocked the first speedrun achievement thanks to your tips 0/

Here is the start :


(The slope is just 2 steps ahead)

And the end :


(From here, just jump to the right. You'll die but the achievement will unlock)

Hi Wicelow,

Thanks for the pictures, I suspected that the start was near the slope bit but I did not realise that it had to be done on the second run through! :-)

Thanks

Excellent, was your run flawless? also how long did it take you, I have tried this but dont hear the checkpoint ping after suicide dive to the right?

I also saved after picking up the treasure at refinery entrance, towards the entrance of the room, would this matter?

I saved just before the slope and unlocked it only after a few failures so I don't think your save will be a problem.
(Everytime I tried, the game started just a little before the slope, on top of the small stair and a cutscene plays when you move forward.)

Many trys but no achievement so I do know this f****** part of the level, so it was surely flawless.
When you jump at the end, the first it didn't unlock for me.
The second time I kept the LS in the right position after the jump abnd it worked.
Don't know if it's related (maybe you jump a little further that way) but it doesn't hurt to make it to be sure ^_^


2nd speedrun still missing >_<
I think I screwed myself by going too far after the start of the speedrun and overwriting the save file...
Well, I'll play the level one more time when a video/picture solution will appear.

Damn this second speed run is starting to piss me off. The third of the piston things always gets me and I have no idea what the timing for that one is.

I just got the 1st speed run completed, using the suicide technique & using Shadow Speed while jumping.

I saved at the start of the falling platforms room with falling blue goo.

Bring on speed run #2.

This is driving me insane. I just finished the 2nd run but no achievement. I did not pause once and it just didn't unlock That's it for one day I think

Same here, 1250/1250 just finished speedrun 2, speedrun 1 is easy, the 2nd one is a pain, as you rush like mad, but you dont need to, well you do, but take your time on the crushing wall, and platform area, there is room to take your time there, dont rush, once you relax a bit its easy.

And the end :

thesuicide jump can be done much much earlier.
after sliding down the ramp turn around and jump to the first wall, then go all the way to the right and aroudn the corner to wall 2. go up this wall, then when you get to the highest point and have to jump to the right to shimmy around a ledge that is shaped like half a hexagon, get on the right bit of it and jump backwards.

youll jump over the outermost corner of the ledge where the blue stuff is being shot up, just miss the final ledge with the thralls, trigger the checkpoint and acheivment unlocked.

I used the suicide jump when I got it, the checkpoint doesn't trigger but it still gave me the achievement.

For the people that are not sure where the second speed run starts and finishes i took some pics to help out


Save at this point if you reload it will spawn you back inside but the run doesn't start till you jump to the fallen stone




After the moving conveyor of stones were you need to jump the gaps and avoid the fire balls slide down the ramp and the achievement will unlock if you were quick enough


Hope his helps anyone that is stuck on this achievement good luck

I think the second speed run starts at the top of the transformer room just as you go into the passage. I've been using the checkpoint just before that on the broken bridge to do the run.

For the 2nd run, save on the big stone bridge at the top of the room , before the tunnel.

This run isn't to bad, just shadow power past all the thralls and for traversing the ram trap, just activate shadow power...and go down/up right when one hits the wall.

The last tunnel with the fireballs looks intimidating, but you really don't have to time anything, just use shadow power and continue jumping..that's what i did..lol

Question

Anyone know the amount of time you have for either speedrun?

Or is it more a matter of just not screwing up a jump/dying etc.

Cheers,
--Bovine.

Edit: Heh, got the first one just after posting this, used the suicide method .

Just got the 1st speed run achievement using the suicide method...3 or 4 attempts from the location pictured in the post by Wicelow (Thanks!!). I would recommend this for anyone struggling with the 1st speed run as I did yesterday. Now I can tackle the 2nd speed run

Edit: 2nd speed run completed...1250/1250...How do you like me now??
Thanks to Highlander II for the screen shots

With the suicidal jump revealed, the first speed run is really not a big deal now. Hope everyone will get over the second one soon.

I can confirm that the suicide jump (from the right side of the half-hexagon ledge) works on the first run through.

Got it on my first attempt after memorizing the course.

Good question.

I still can't unlock the 2nd achievement.
I don't think I'm screwing anything so maybe I'm a bit slow during the run.

When I load up for the second speed-run I start on the bridge right before the tunnel (no problems there, right?)..

..I've gone through the obstacles like 4 times, rather quickly and nothing. Anything that might of happened or am I just going to slow? I would hate to imagine it's the latter.

This is starting to aggravate me..
