I've created this map to play for myself and decided to make a 4-part video of my playthrough. You can find the first part on youtube to get a genera...

Ah, thanks for pointing that out.

There's indeed no replay.dat in the save file.

So that concludes that...

Help! Problem with the replay function

Allright, I'm having a problem. I wanted to film the replay of my latest speedrun (the 3.59.58 one), but I can't play it. I'm now in version 0.11.13, and I played on the map I created in version 0.11.8. Knowing that would cause trouble, I looked for a way to convert the map to 0.11.13 so I could pla...

Re: Update a map - didn't work for me

Allright, I'm having a problem. I wanted to film the replay of my latest speedrun (under 4 hours :) ), but I can't play it.

-SNIP-

Moved my question to the technical help section:

Re: Factorio Speedrun in Less Then 4 Hours!

@Artman, this is probably it. With great efforts I might be able to shave off a couple of minutes, but I think I reached the limit of what is possible with my current strategy (Someone could come up with a different strategy that is faster still; This would be a good moment for DaveMcW to come in wi...

Re: Factorio Speedrun in Less Then 4 Hours!

Just finished another run on the same map, same rules as last time (peaceful, rich ores, ingame timer so with reloads (reloaded more liberally this time). Breaking the 4-hour mark was really satisfying, this will really (really!) (really?) be my last run for a while. Maybe I'll try a live run and tr...

Re: Factorio Speedrun in 4:44 (EDIT: Video's are up!)

Thanks for the feedback :) Good point on using the heavy and light oil for power, I didn't think of that. Just hooking up a couple boilers and steam engines (does someone know how much fluid/s a boiler uses?) might save time, as I'd have to set up power anyway. It'd have to be a reliable constant so...

Good point, I've edited the opening post with a statement. Also, I'll talk about this somewhat more comprehensive in the upcoming video.

Re: Factorio Speedrun in 4:44 (update from 5:23)

Thanks, I'll do my best to get it up quickly! @kovarex/devs: I'm still on version 0.11.8 (hint:no blueprints were used ;) , I didn't update on purpose because that disables the replay ability (even though worms won't shoot you anymore in the newere versions :evil: ) Yesterday night I managed to play...

Re: Factorio Speedrun in 4:44 (update from 5:23)

I just finished a new (and for now my last) run in 4:44:42 About 2h in the run I knew this time would probably be quite an improvement, so I didn't bother trying to film-capture the old 5:23 run. Instead I'll make a video on this one, including all the numbers and strategies I figured out. It might ...

Re: Factorio Speedrun in 5:23:43

Killing aliens was actually one of the weak parts of my game. I mistakenly set alien bases to small, which meant I had to spend 20 minutes laser-turreting small and far apart bases to collect the stuff (you only need ~380, 100 for the modules and 260 + losses for science). I don't know what the aver...

Re: Accumulator / Solar panel ratio

Without checking your math, the day/night cycle changed a bit in 0.11.8, so that's probably why you now get different results.
