Darkmode: OFF

Splitting methods among runners are fairly undivided in this game. We decided on the trumpet blow splitting (most popular) as the standard for the board.

Adjustment, s
Trumpet blow Gnist, Remo, Zen, Mikl
Save icon 2.60 Suappi, Oggy

Fill in all uncolored segments in the episode section. They will automatically be moved over to full game.

The splits marked orange should not be moved between ep runs and full-game, as they're not accurate/comparable between the boards.

Start ep splits (grayed out) should not be updated and are estimates based on realistic splits (from Gnist).

If you want to add your times to the list, you may have to adjust them first.

If they split on auto save, remove 2.60s on first split per ep, add 2.60s on each operation.

Any adjusted best segments should be marked with an asterisk (*)

There are some exceptions to these splitting rules used in the board for any% and 100%.

All splits that do not split on the final trumpet blow of the job complete screen by default are listed below with their respective splitting times.

Speed between different languages in this game varies a lot. There are a total of 12 languages available for different digital (PSN) releases for this game (NTSC, PAL and NTSC-J: Kor).

Below are listed all splits in both any% and 100% runs of Sly 3 that are affected by languages and version differences.

English is counted in these comparisons to always use the H&S skip (Health & Safety skip). More on H&S skip in Sly 2 Forewords page.

This board uses only specific languages (Dutch and Norwegian) as a standard (Dutch for everything except episodes 3 and 4) although other versions/langauges of the game make certain splits faster than in Dutch or Norwegian on PAL.

* Splits that contain some cycle based elements but have a near insignificant effect on how much different languages saves.
** Splits that contain cycle based elements that have a significant effect on how much different languages saves.
H&S Splits that are listed fastest in English always contain game resets and utilize the H&S skip (saves ~7.2 seconds every reset).
Green = Community gold standard set to Dutch (PAL)
Red = Community gold standard set to Norwegian (PAL)
