F-Zero is a futuristic Racing Game.

Recorded on Snes9x 1.43 +v10

Settings that are enabled: WIP1 timing Fake Mute desync workaround Sync samples with sound CPU

     - no warps or passwords used
     - no programming errors or glitches used
     - aiming for fastest possible time
The lap times are:

    1. 27"13 (because of starting from 0 km/h and double bump on opponent)
    2. 24"89 (A new strategie is used to get lap times under 24"90)
    3. 24"88 (one reason for it is that i got far into the lap,that's why 2nd   lap is 24"89 and this one is 24"88)
    4. 24"89
    5. 24"88 (same effect like in lap 2 and 3)
World Record Times of Big Blue:

Total: 2'06"96 (0"29 sec slower than this time)

Starting Lap: 27"20 (0"00 secs slower)

Fastest 1-Boost Lap: 24"90 (0"01 secs slower)

This is a run on the track called Big Blue which is 0"29 seconds faster then the previous World Record run,what is actually really a lot in this game.

The World Record on this track is 2'06"96.So there is a difference of 0"29 to this Tool-Assisted-Speedrun.Some of you might think it's not much,but in this Game 0"29 secs are a lot.

In order to make the TAS fast i used a new technique on boosts. A boost gives you more speed (from 562 km/h down to 486km/h for a while) with this technique i short the time of the boost where it has the speed of 530km/h to 486 km/h.Following to that i can use the part of a boost from 562 km/h to 430km/h more often during on boost.

That technique can save 0"06 during one boost.

FractalFusion: Claiming for judging so that no one else does.

FractalFusion: I'm rejecting this run. See post for details.
