THE GLITCH USED IN THIS RUN REQUIRES A SAVEFILE WITH AN ALREADY-COMPLETE FILE ON ONE OF THE OTHER TWO FILES! THIS MOVIE TAKES PLACE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CURRENT STARFY TAS!

  • New Game +
  • Fastest Time
  • YOLO

Comments

This run starts from a savefile. It's the only way to do this kind of run, which could be considered "newgame+" or "glitched" or a combination of both. I would love to thank Cfox7, FaschZ, LightningWar91, SwordlessLink, Toufool31, and all the people who voted "Yes" for the DKR run for encouraging me to do this. ;)

An update: After some comments about this run being invalid due to the first file being mandatory, well, it's not. Here's a file showing that I could clear all saves, and this glitch would still work assuming I had played all the way to the last boss and saved there before.

Another update: Someone told me that this run is invalid because I've simply glitched it to load the first file. Well, not exactly. If you went through the credits, and went back to the file select screen, you'll see File 2 as complete:


Nach: This run does nothing more than show off a glitch. Showing off a glitch by itself is not enough to qualify publication.

If this run started the game from the very beginning and then proceeded to beat it, then this could be published as a kind of glitched run. But since the start is tainted, a movie like this best belongs in Game Resources.

Rejecting.
