@Estie

But I hardly consider that fair considering I believe it is not under the cheat options menu

If you're going to speed run Vanilla 3.0.x, use OBS Studio to record it, at 1920x1080 if possible

If you want to record games of angband, you should use ttyrec. It is rad.

As far as speedrunning goes, I think 3 hours is pretty achievable, though I've never tried to do a fast-in-realtime run...

Is there a tutorial on how to use ttyrec??

You just start it and run whatever unix terminal stuff you want and it records the byte stream that goes to your terminal to a file. You can even stream that file on the intertron using the termcast service and a utility called ttrtail. People already do this with sil and poschengband.

Will this work on Windows 10 too?

The big thing to be aware of with ttyrec is that it is specifically for recording stuff that happens in terminals ("tty" is for some reason a shorthand for "terminal"). Terminals are what Windows' old "cmd" shell is a crude imitation of. ttyrec doesn't generate video files, either -- it records the characters that the terminal displays. A compact, lossless "video format", but not exactly one you can share on YouTube.

There are significant advantages in using terminals, the big one being that you can (potentially) play the game on a server via SSH or similar and let other players spectate on your games.

I know I'm about 5 days late to reply but....

I don't really know if this laptop has the ability to record (my wifes and its not very nice) but in a week or two I am moving and I can get my laptop and record it in 1080 (or higher? have 4k res on the piece but I don't know what the max recording resolution is with the recorder) with shadow play. So you can get all those bits and watch me bang my head into a wall in ultra high resolution. 1Tb disk hard drive and 1Tb SSD should be enough, but idk, Angband is pretty demanding.

I really like the idea of speed runs on the older versions. Seems that the most recent updates (recent being within prospective considering the last v I played before the current vanilla was 1.7 something) were to streamline the ui and make less user input to complete player turns/moves. Without that a speed run really relies on the player optimizing their turn and memorizing their inventory positions.

BTW whoever was responsible for the auto * after using keys like i, e, z, a (ect) is my hero.

You don't need a very high resolution video for YouTube. 480 is fine, so long as you use a 40x80 screen size.

What's a good font size to use for ttyrec purposes?
