Author's comments and explanations:
Basically vanilla Mario 64 but every time you collect a coin, you get faster by 5%. All the basic stuff. This is Whomp's Fortress. Enjoy!

While you still can...

feos: Judging...

feos: There are several reasons why this movie can't be accepted.

As pointed out by OmnipotentEntity, this movie is slower than the currently fastest corresponding TAS segment that uses the original game and collects 100 coins. It's also slower than the "no Backwards Long Jump" record. Which breaks this Movie Rule:

This movie only plays a single level and doesn't complete the game, so it breaks this rule as well:

This movie uses a hack of Super Mario 64. The whole point of that hack is "Mario gets 5% faster every time you collect a coin". Here's the relevant rule:

"Mario gets 5% faster every time you collect a coin" only has several hits on Google if you omit the quotes (0 hits with quotes). It's also still quite new, so not strong following to talk about so far. It's also not known if the fully optimized TAS of this hack would look any different from how the vanilla game is played, despite this suggestion.

The branch. Collecting all coins is already done in [2208] N64 Super Mario 64 (USA) "all 120 stars" by MKDasher, Nahoc, sonicpacker, Bauru, Eru, Goronem, Jesus, Kyman, Mokkori, Moltov, Nothing693, pasta, SilentSlayers, Snark & ToT in 1:20:41.52. With duly optimized movement, the question about the most optimal amount of coins collected becomes definitive for this hack. If you just collect all coins, there's no proof that the speedups added by this hack will make it look different enough from the "120 stars" TAS. If skipping some coins is more optimal, then the speed benefit added by this hack becomes iffy in itself, in which case, one might instead just watch a vanilla game TAS.

If a full run of this hack is done, the "all coins" goal is unlikely to get to Moons if we look at the votes for both submissions. Other goals will most likely look too similar to the current publications of regular SM64. And having this hack in Vault is outright impossible.


Missingno0fficial, if you make another submission that obviously breaks the Movie Rules, you will lose submission privileges.
