LiveSplit is a new timer software for speedrunners that is both easy to use and has a high degree of customization.
Importing Splits: Along with its own LSS (LiveSplit Splits) files, LiveSplit can open and automatically import splits from other major timers such as Llanfair, WSplit, and SplitterZ.
Dynamic Resizing: LiveSplit can be resized to any size so that it looks good on stream. As LiveSplit’s size is changed, all of its parts are automatically scaled up in order to preserve its appearance.
Layout System: Users can modify every part of LiveSplit’s appearance using layouts. Every user has the ability to add or remove parts along with being able to rearrange and customize each part of LiveSplit.
Live Graph: As the run goes on, the graph automatically resizes and changes based on time lost or gained. If users do not wish to use the live graph, a static graph may be used instead.
Sharing Runs: Any run can be shared to websites such as PBTracker, AllSpeedruns, Congratsio and Twitter. Splits can also be distributed using Splits.io and Ge.tt and imported from a URL. Additional websites will be supported in the future.
OBS Plugin: The LiveSplit plugin for OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) allows users to easily use LiveSplit in their streams, including putting LiveSplit over a background or a game capture without the need to chroma key.
Gamepad Support: You can easily use gamepads, steering wheels, foot pedals, special mouse keys for controlling LiveSplit if you want to. You don’t need to simulate keyboard keys to use them. It just works.
Component Development: Anyone can develop their own components that can easily be shared and used inside LiveSplit. Additional components that will be released can be found in the Components Section.
Twitch Support: With Twitch sharing, you are able to change your Stream’s title and game on Twitch based on what splits you have open. Just open the Share Window, select Twitch and update your title whenever you want to. You can even define your own format.
SpeedRunsLive Racing: In LiveSplit 1.3, you’ll be able to start and join races on SpeedRunsLive within LiveSplit itself. The timer will automatically start when the race is beginning and it’ll automatically write “.done” whenever you complete the race. Also, you’ll be able to compare your current run with the other runners during the race, as long as they use LiveSplit as well.
Comparisons: In LiveSplit 1.3, you’ll also be able to dynamically switch between multiple comparisons, even mid-run. You can either compare your run to comparisons that you define yourself or you can compare it to multiple automatically generated comparisons, like your sum of best or your average runs. While racing on SpeedRunsLive, comparisons for the other runners are automatically generated as well.
