Author's comments and explanations:
IMPORTANT NOTE: The ending credits theme is a copyrighted song. So in any encodes of this run, you will need to either mute the song or replace it with something else.

Time: 2:33:37.01

Rerecord count: 74,940 (although I think desmume removed a few, tbh)

amount of "YAH"s: too many to count

A long time coming! I started this run about 2 years ago with a fellow named 1000liter, but after the first WIP we kind of fell out of contact. Since this I've just been working on this off and on.

This run beats the game about 50 minutes quicker then the RTA run.

Run comments

Most comments about the run can be found in the captions of the encode I provided.

Known Improvements

-3 Bully Dogs I couldn't manipulate to be frozen, which made me lose about 5 seconds each time.

-Manipulating the Staltwart Blade in OC to use his charging attack could save a good 15 seconds. Couldn't find a way to do it.

Thank you to Spikestuff for being cool and making the encode for Re:Coded. 4k!

Thanks to Samsara for being a chill person to chat with.

Also thanks to Pok3monrocks, Drazerk, and Saiyanz for showing interest in this project.

Finally, thank you to both the KH speedrunning community and the TASvideos community for being great places to hang out.

ars4326: Judging!

ars4326: Hi, arandomgameTASer. Congrats on finally finishing this (and thanks for including commentary with the encode)! It's apparent that much work went into optimizing movements, equips, and fight strategies, throughout (watching Roxas's limit break abuse was especially a treat to watch). Outstanding job, and looking forward to your next TAS.

Accepting for publication to Moons!
