After having my run rejected due to being an "April Fools" joke. I decided to improve it and post it again. This is no joke.

Here are some important memory addresses

This movie was created in SNES9x 1.43 v17 svn123

Due to the fact that there can be 4 different people that end up being the accuser, there are a total of 1296 different combinations.

Here are some things I've determined

About the people:

Mr. Green being the accuser is always the most optimal for the end sequence.

Mr. Green accusing himself is in fact the quickest accusation.

In order of quickest to accuse it is:

Peacock > Green > White > Scarlet > Mustard > Plum

About the Weapons:

In order of quickest to accuse it is:

Wrench > Pipe > Knife > Candlestick > Rope > Revolver

About the Locations:

In order of quickest to accuse it is:

Ballroom > Billiard room > Dining room > Hall = Lounge > Kitchen > Conservatory > Library > Study

And in order of the quickest to get to the accusation screen:

Mustard > Scarlet > Green = White

The people/weapon/place are determined based on the frame number alone, no matter what order i pick my characters or which characters I use, the correct things will always be the same if I click "Start Game" on the same frame. Therefore it was a balance of finding the combination that would finish the quickest with the correct group of people selected as the character. It turned out that Scarlet accusing herself was the quickest, though Mr. Green accusing her was very close.

P.s. Not an april fools joke!

Nach: Reje... er, Judging.
Nach: This game still isn't that great nor all that interesting. However it's not even half a minute long, and therefore doesn't need much to keep an audience captivated. This like Monopoly tries to aim for the fastest ending. However unlike Monopoly, the run isn't as entertaining where we get to see the computer force itself to defeat with amazing luck manipulation.

All this being said, this run is well planned and luck optimized in aiming to force the fastest ending, and after several submissions this one is quite optimal. Since the audience response is quite good, and the murderer starts of with a funny admission, I'll accept this.
