This is a TAS of how to freeze Kirby Super Star!

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Snes9x v1.55 (why)
  • Freezes the game as fast as possible

Comments

In Kirby Super Star, there's a glitch freezing the game, this happens when the Wheelie helper is ditched at the same time you get on it. That's because you are not actually controlling Kirby, you're controlling the Wheelie helper. The Wheelie Rider is actually an ability! Therefore there's seem to be a glitch where Kirby is unable to be controlled forever. That's due to the helper not existing and the game code corrupted. Unfortunately, it only softlocks Kirby, and the enemies still move, and you're able to pause the game. If done in Revenge of Meta Knight, you're able to continue by waiting until the timer runs out. If done in other subgames, you'll have to reset your SNES.

Stage by stage comments

Main Menu

I go to Dyna Blade, since it's the fastest game with enemies that I can mix for the Wheel.

Dyna Blade, Peanut Plains

I mixed for the Wheel, turned my ability cap into the CPU helper , and I did the Wheelie glitch, I already explained what happened!

If I used the Japanese version, I can save even better by going to GCO and doing the ladder glitch.


Masterjun: Judging.

Masterjun: Softlocking the game as fast as possible is not a valid goal choice. Additionally, it is slower than the published run which can achieve the same thing. Also, Snes9x v1.55 is a deprecated emulator. Please use one of our preferred emulators such as BizHawk or lsnes.

Don't forget to read the Submission Instructions. Make sure you understand the movie rules.

Cancelled.

Chutacoacko Playz: I'm going ahead and submitting a KSS spring breeze run, although it's slower then MUGG'S run but faster than nitsuja's Spring Breeze TAS which was part of the any% no ACE run.
