TAS Ristar "Bonus Stages" by mmarks

I have improved the movie previous of GGG to 28 frames. They were small improvements, but the longest was 5-1, good not so long. Maybe I expect more improvements.

Game Objectives

  • Emulator used: Gens 11b
  • Aims for fastest possible time.
  • Plays at the hardest difficulty
  • Genre: Platform


I tried to improve a movie and thought about this.

I was seeing if any improvement area and I did, now you will see in the table below.

Comparison Table

Stages New Time GGG Time
1-2 6:08 6:10
3-1 8:52 8:55
4-1 4:71 4:75
5-1 6:23 6:46
6-1 9:52 9:62

Suggested Screenshot: Frame: 12654

Possible improvements:

There is little chance of improving, 1-2 already did it. In 3-1 I think you can improve more than one frame. 5-1 and 6-2 improve cost.

Enjoy the run.

Flygon: Added YouTube module.

klmz: Accepted as an improvement to the currently published movie.

Flygon: Encoding, due to no one else having stepped up to make an encode that is authorized to have their encodes published.

mmarks: I changed the module and edit stuff sticks. Also added my module next to Flygon's one.

Flygon: Reverted due to TASVideos policy, sorry mmarks. If you wish to get the policy changed, please appeal to sgrunt.
