TAS Ristar "Bonus Stages" v2 by mmarks

I have improved only 23 frames of my previous publication. The following levels were improves 1-2, 3-1, 4-2. The most interesting was 4-2, you will see below

Game objetive:

  • Emulator used: Gens 11b
    • Rom used: Ristar (UE) [!].bin
  • Aims for fastest possible time.
  • Plays at the hardest difficulty
  • Used password for the bonus stages: DOFEEL
  • Genre: Platform

About the Game:

This game involves passing the time of the levels of Sega Records. What is it?, Are generated by sega times, times are quite slow (Some are fast and others not). A time fast was 4-2 to finish in 17.82, that I found very fast, until I could improve a lot (not much), but it will be seen later in the stage by stage comments

About the Movie:

I have been testing if there was something to improve but I found it at 3-1 and 4-2. It was not as easy it looks, but could be made possible. I did not have much room for improvement but something had to do

Time Table:

Level This time Old time Savings
1-2 6.07 6.08 1 frame
3-1 8.40 8.52 7 frames
4-2 17.59 17.79 12 frames

Stage by Stage comments:

Level 1-2: I thought that in the other levels to more quickly grasp the object below. So I tried with this level and only improves 1 frame

Level 3-1: In this discove that he had 4 frames of delay at the beginning and in the end had 3 frames of delay, it that achieves this time

Level 4-2: This level was key. Because I was trying to improve but I got nothing, until I discovered that in the last part more or less in this frame: from 9843 to 9882. And I could improve the time above 8 frames and the object 4 frames of improves. With that I could achieve a fair time

Suggested Screenshot: Frame: 9845

Possible improvements:

I do not think there are potential improvements for now

Enjoy the run

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