Who is Swixel
And is this guy legit? Those are some terrifying leaderboard times. I'd probably get epilepsy watching him haul ♥♥♥ through a level. Really wish you could download replays locally to see how these guys do it.

if Swixel is around the forums we'd probably offer to post a few of his videos. AndyN asked me to look into whether he's legit or not and we couldn't decide. Thats got to be the biggest compliment!

Well... the dev himself said it is possible to cheat and there's no way to prevent it unless he implements a diablo/simcity-online online DRM to check if the player edited the files

Here's the video (at 1h16m): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=jXvj5iCJR9c#t=4605s

In that case, I choose to believe that my time of 99 minutes 51 seconds in Royal Flush is to date the first legitimate single player win in that level. If you did it faster or are a better player, you are a cheater. Leaderboards are a mixed bag, haha. I like that I'm one of 34 people to beat the level, I don't like that I'm by far the slowest!

He does haul ♥♥♥. i know it lol.

He hauls ♥♥♥ in a completely legitimate, though incredible, fashion.

I'd do him.

...sorry, what was the question?
Swixel Apr 30, 2013 @ 10:38pm 
I hear he's played over 20 hours of this game, mostly in coop;
and that his fingers once belonged to the Stig.

Anyway, as Wilford Brimley pointed out, not many people have *played* (or beaten) the level yet, so I doubt I'll come out on top when all's said and done. Obscenely fast runs? Sure. But I'm not even in the top 10 for some of the first act levels, which should tell you what I've spent a lot of my time messing with...

Yeah, leveling the poor king of Monaco's house :( took all his money and freedom spooned the hell out of him.

It's early game yet, the speed runners are just getting to the later levels. We're coming for your scores Swixel (:
Swixel May 1, 2013 @ 2:06am 
Good, I'll have something to do later ;)

Heres my 5:15 time on red carpet before swixel inevitably ruins it. Just wanted to top the leader board just once. =3 Have fun with that.
Swixel May 1, 2013 @ 2:02pm 
Tooks five runs, but I beat your 4 minute score too ... dying really blows your time out =\
[Dolt] Mantaray-Dave May 1, 2013 @ 2:04pm 
Swixel is legit.
Fearful Ferret May 1, 2013 @ 5:04pm 
I'm sure he's legit. Nobody has been seriously speedrunning the later pickpocket missions yet (except Swixel), and I don't doubt that low times are possible. He just got there first.

I would love to watch some videos of this!
