Author's comments and explanations:
Human Theory TAS for Super Mario Bros (FDS).

The previous TAS didn't have the wall clip in -3 so I added that.

  1. 1-1: FPG
  2. 1-2: 1-2G
  3. -1: Underwater FPG
  4. -2: FPG
  5. -3: Wall-clip

feos: We don't publish movies with arbitrary limitations if they are not entertaining to watch, see Movie Rules. Excluding TAS-only tricks doesn't make a movie any more entertaining. Quite the opposite: since it results in a movie similar to a real-time run that a human can pull off, it can't satisfy expectations from a tool-assisted movie. Emulator tools give huge advantage, so the result should make good use of them to justify tool assistance. This movie doesn't. It only serves as a reference for real-time runners. Which would fit nicely as a Userfile, but not as a submission. See the discussion thread for more detailed explanations.


pillow, please don't submit movies that are slower than existing records on our site, otherwise your submission privileges may be revoked.
