Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.2
  • Grabs some cash
  • Aims for shortest input
  • Manipulates delays/numbers heavily

General

The fastest way to get insane cash is playing the Keno as a Mr. We put some bet and pick enough numbers to get 1 million dollar. After the draw, leave the game, enter slots, leave the game, game over.

Detailed informations

0x7010 delay timer. Minimum is 0x1E and highest number should be 0x29. The delay timer can "overflow", and reinitialize with a small ammount (from 3 to 7). The subroutine is located @ $B182.

The numbers I rolled and the delays I could reduce is...

  • 70 - 0x1E
  • 60 - 0x1F
  • 50 - 0x1E
  • 40 - 0x1E
  • 20 - 0x22
  • 10 - 0x1E
  • 30 - 0x25
  • 55 - 0x24
  • 62 - 0x28
  • 80 - 0x28
  • 51 - 0x20
  • 52 - 0x27
  • 18 - 0x20
  • 64 - 0x29
  • 46 - 0x1E
  • 30 - 0x1F
  • 48 - 0x21
  • 31 - 0x22
  • 4 - 0x1E
  • 7 - 0x1E
  • 39 - 0x23

Miscellaneous

As you can see, the game is entirely depends on that subroutine and your input, so a bot probably could find a better sequence and obsolete this movie.


Samsara: Judging.

Samsara: Accepting as an improvement to the published run. The rating of the previous publication and the votes on this submission warrant a drop to Vault, however.

feos: Since I have a dump already...
