Emulator: Gens 9J/9Z


  1. Aims for fastest time
  2. Variety and entertainment if it barely affects (1)
  3. Abuses programming errors/glitches
  4. Takes damage to save time

Alright, my third submission for this game, an improvement of ~20 secs off my previous run.


Most of the improvements made this time round can be attributed to better, more precise playing in the first few levels of the game, as well as quicker movement using shoulder bash.

Major route changes are credited to XYZ, who reminded me to use the Powerfist to end stage 2-2, and also discovered the glitch used on the Mortus.


Stage V2 V3 Difference
1-1 4502 4313 189
1-2 6994 6911 83
2-1 7245 6885 360
2-2 5553 5264 289
3-1 4875 4713 162
3-2 8259 8120 139
Total 37428 36206 1222

3 frames were lost in between levels (due to random lag).


XYZ is perhaps the single most important reason why the run is improved so vastly, kudos to him for discovering so many new tricks :)

Maximus and his trusty little movie editor once again saved my project countless number of times, so thanks again dude,

moozooh for all the compliments he had for my earlier run; hope this doesn't disappoint you,

and EVERYONE else at TASVideos. Enjoy the run

Truncated: Accepted as an improvement to the previous version. Good work.

Bisqwit: Tidying up some markup on this page (you can use # instead of *1) for enumerated lists), and processing for publication.
Bisqwit: Scratch that. It desyncs for me. Does it require some special input configuration perhaps? Or a special emulator version? I'm using the same version of Gens that I have used since June 2006... if this movie is not compatible with that version, well, tough luck. I have not been informed about new emulator versions that are not sync-compatible with the old versions, nor provided with patches... Moving along.

adelikat: Syncs fine for me, so I will handle this one.
