[Reusable] Splits 2021-03-28

Tracks times for multi-course speedruns—similar to LiveSplit or other speedrunning timers, but with no extra programs required.

attachment.php


Try splits in console to start a run, and let the script handle the rest.

  • Individual records for all game speeds
  • Saves your best times for every track, in every category
  • Supports sneakerless and 1-lap runs
  • Set up custom runs, with any courses in any order you like

COMMANDS:
splits - Shows the list of available runs.
splits [# of run] - Starts a new run. If you manually change map, the run will end.

CVARS:
splits_mini - When On, all courses will be 1 lap. Saves under separate splits.
splits_sneakerless - When On, removes item boxes and prevents you from otherwise gaining items. Saves under separate splits.
splits_profile - When On, appends some extra text to your split filenames. Useful if you want to run the same category with different mods or characters and keep the splits separate.
autoaccel - Input assist feature intended for comfort. When On, this keeps the accelerator down during all standard driving; you'll still need to press Accel for start boosts and Drop Dashes, but shouldn't need it for anything else. Same as the HOSTMOD version.

INTEROP:
Splits makes some things available as globals, for mods that might want to alter their behavior or otherwise work with the data available.
SPLITS - Version number.
Splits_Runs() - Returns table of available run types.
Splits_Runtype() - Returns 0 if not in a run, or an index to the run table if in a run.
Splits_Save() - Returns the save table currently in use.
Splits_Reset() - Restarts the run.
Hopefully the script is self-documenting to an extent.

CONFIG:
Loads "luafiles/runs.txt". This file follows the following rules:
- Lines prefixed by ~ will be executed as commands, verbatim, when the mod is loaded.
- All other lines will be interpreted as custom run categories, in the following order:
1: Run name (displayed in menu)
2: Run split filename (used when writing savefiles)
3: File to add when this run is parsed. (Can be blank.)
4: List of two-character map codes, separated by spaces.

Example:
Code:
~autoaccel On
~color Slate

If this works in multiplayer, it's on accident. If you report bugs that happen in multiplayer, I will laugh at you.

Uses Varren's "customsave_io.lua" to save best times.
