Author's comments and explanations:
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga takes place in the Beanbean Kingdom, where Mario and Luigi chase down the villains Cackletta and Fawful to retrieve Princess Peach's voice.

The objective of the movie is to beat the game fast without using any glitches.

Damage was taken to save time.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Hello Lu64, and welcome to TASVideos.

For a first TAS this is a very good and ambitious effort, but as people more familiar with TASing the game have noted, there are several issues with routing and optimization; especially the mashing (mainly using autofire at various speeds) loses a lot of time over the course of the run, often visibly so. There are also other occasional flubs, including sometimes stopping movement for no good reason. Because of these issues, I'm rejecting this run.

If you want to try again, I recommend contacting other TASers who are more familiar with running through this game and cooperating with them. Also, be aware of the downsides of using autofire, considering how many frames it loses in this game.

Better luck next time!
