Fallout 3 under 15 minute speedrun video by Rydou

This is the very first run to beat 15 minutes ever in Fallout 3.

For those who aren't familiar with the game, he's skip the dialogues and clip through walls by quick saving/quick loading.

Every time you quick load, the collision detection doesn't work during something like 10 frames, allowing him to clip through objects and walls, in some extent.
Also, he's playing in very easy, that explain why the damage received are pretty low. Also, at the speed he's running, he doesn't actually receive that many damages anyway. This is the default difficulty used by the community.

About the speed glitch :

When you cripple your legs, your speed is set to 0, then bring back to 60% of your normal speed. By quick loading just before getting crippled, you can confuse the game into giving you 60% without actually being put to 0 ( because we don't actually really get crippled). So you get a huge speed boost, and walk at 160% of your normal speed.

This speed boost can appear in two versions : One which is "breakable", it will last as long as you don't quick load again. The second one is "unbreakable", you can quick load or load a game without losing it.

This time can still be improved, even if my raven rock was godly, my vault 87 was pretty awful, so I would like to get a sub 14:50.

As the same time, he might try to get the sub 30 on FNV glitch less, and then get a decent time on FNV Any% because the run is now 2 min faster than it was.

The leaderboard :

And my twitch page for those potentially interested to see the eternal grind :

NB : Apologise for some weird audio issue, due to copyright problem with youtube, forcing the removal of almost 4 min of the audio track . This video edit has audio record from other old run to match the blank.

Not very pretty, but it does the job, and for those who might think it's because of splicing, you can check the unedited run on twitch :
