Got4n: Doing this TAS was a total nightmare! Also, this is my first 3D Tas! But it was very funny!

NilsTFK: That's my first TAS, I actually didn't make any input because I still am not good enough to optimize them on 3D games. What I did was helping Got4n with a few tricks, spots, routes and giving him advices when he needed some (and when I could give him some). Most of the spots for the superjumps were found by either Pewable or me some time ago for a single segment project and recently for this TAS. I think Got4n has done a really good job and has put a lot more efforts into it. That guy is just insane and incredibely patient !


Super Jumping

one of the only glitch in this game. Founded by pewable , there is one extreme as hell. There is some easy which have 1/2 and requires 10s to do it on console and TAS Medium which have 1/20 and requires 2 min on Console and 10 min on TAS Hard which have 1/100 and requires 20 min~on console, and about 1-2 hours on TAS Impossible which have 1/500 and requires 2-3hours on console, and about 15hours on TAS.

This does not work on every platform, this rarely works!

  • Underwater swimming
Only working in Land of Livid Dead. Found by pewable. When pressing camera and there water just under ledge, well pressing camera while falling and you'll fall in underwater swimming

Stage by stage comments.

  1. Fairy Council
Nothing to say about an "hard" super jump.

  2.Clearleaf forest
Easy superjump, cut the maps, sometimes I make mistakes in the boss because If I go directly he break the missile power :/

  3. Bog of Murk.
Even if there is water, Underwater is not possible for reasons. w_w. Manipulated Razor to get on first piece. That's why first time is a bit weird.

  4. Land of Livid Dead
Underwater swimming to skip level 1 and 3 and boss

  5.Desert of Knarren
Nothing to say except Reflux was a nightmare to TAS

  6. The Longest Shortcut.
Nothing to say except shoes battle was very cool xD.

  7. The Summit Beyond Clouds
In the Boat part , I'll just make a glitch at end just for entairtaining. I fell at exact frame for no time losing :P !

  8. Hoodlum Headquarters
Mmh.. Boss was a nightmare to TAS, due to really diferrent perfect timing

  9. Leptys Tower
It is possible to skip whole first level, using shortcut in the level 2. And beating Reflux


Ladders hitbox sometimes are really bad.

Special Thanks:

Dolphin to crash many times :)

Pewable to all his glitches Ultimategamer95 for his speedrun.

Rerecord count is very low because dolphin crashed many times.

Oh! forgot to say that using TAS Input plugin was a nightmare because everytime I run it after 3-4 load of savestates, dolphin crash. Enjoy!

Nahoc: Judging...

Nahoc: Rejecting due to poor optimization and bad audience response overall. Game choice doesn't seem to be the problem here, but rather the running angles and overall look of the TAS. A more optimized version of this speedrun would certainly be accepted. Good luck with your future TASes, got4n!
