Trying to record a Route 3 run with the good ending of the route, but I can never get to the bomb in time and end up forfeiting the run in frustration. Anyone know a decent way to find out where the room with the bomb is?

This route can be done 100% reliably on Mania without running out of time... as long as you're aware of what the trick is. If you're not aware of what the trick to this section here is, or even aware there is a trick to finding the bomb in time, it will feel like bullshit as Mania gives you barely any time to check rooms (because unlike SoR3 the timer counts down while in the rooms). You'll only have time to check 3 rooms, maybe 4? If you want to figure it out yourself, my recommendation is to record which rooms you find in which position each time you play the route (difficulty doesn't change the room layouts if I remember correctly). For full spoilers on what to do here, see below:

Spoiler:
Based on my tests, version 5.2 picks a room layout at random from one of two possible layouts, which is the same as in 5.0 and 5.1 if I remember correctly. I've listed the layouts as follows, with floor 4 being the upper starting floor, and floor 1 being the bottom one you need the keycard to access:

Layout 1

Floor 4: (Entrance)
Floor 3: (Trap room: double floor spark) (Keycard for floor 1) (Trap room: low ceiling lasers)
Floor 2: (Trap room: vertical laser) (Trap room: ground laser) (Disarm console)
Floor 1: (Exit & Shiva boss fight, keycard required)

---

Layout 2

Floor 4: (Entrance)
Floor 3: (Trap room: vertical laser) (Disarm console) (Trap room: double floor spark)
Floor 2: (Trap room: ground laser) (Keycard for floor 1) (Trap room: low ceiling lasers)
Floor 1: (Exit & Shiva boss fight, keycard required)

None of the room positions are duplicated between layouts, therefore knowing the layouts instantly means you know where all the rooms are (most importantly the disarm console) after checking your first room. The best room to check first is the middle room of the 1st floor first which contains either the keycard or the disarm console. If you get the keycard, run to the next floor down, and check the far room.

If you use the spoilers and anything's unclear, let me know.

I am playing version 5.2 and just tried to follow your guide but found this

Floor 4 (Entrance)
Floors 3 : (Double floor spark)   (Low ceiling laser)   (Vertical laser)

So it seems there are other possible layouts Sad

EDIT : I probably missed the keycard thinking it was bills on the floor...

What difficulty were you on? Did you record the gameplay footage? Most of my runs have been on Mania, so I don't know if there are indeed alternate layouts other than the two I mentioned on other difficulties, etc, but best to record all the details to figure this out if this is indeed the case and you're not mistaken. It should be testable using level select, too.
