History

It's important to note that Any% is the main competitive category of this game. The current tables reflects from Speedrun.com game stats. However, Any% specifically misses some important details about full history of this game. Because, DMC1 Historically went through the timing method changes 3 times. When DMC1 first established at 2013 the timing method that community went through was IGT. During that period, maxy held at peak for nearly a year and a half till Slickford managed it in 22nd of January 2021.

After that period the community worked on how IGT is counted, they found that it used frames to count the mission time. IGT even continues to run on the mission's result screen. The final verdict is the IGT in this game seems to just be RTA for individual levels, minus the menus and the couple of sections where IGT doesn't run. Therefore, community had a discussion and agreed upon switching to RTA over IGT.

Year 2021 had insane competition with 6 emerging runners: Out_With_A_Yang, coolkarmact, Muty71, DizzySplits and DanSpence94. Maxylobes and Slickford had heavy pressure to keep up with their time.
