Tool-assisted game movies
When human skills are just not enough

Welcome to my page! If you like TASVideos.org, why not register?
I am 34, from lonely southwestern Pennsylvania. My interests are in computers, networking, software development, website development, and electronics. I've been working with computers for about many years, and have a CCNA certification. For those of you who don't know what that means, its called "Cisco Certified Networking Associate". I received this certification by taking a 2 year Cisco Networking Academy course. I also work on arcade systems, and even managed to get an In The Groove machine working, even after being told by techs that it couldn't be done.

If you want to know more about me, just chat with me on IRC!

I joined TASVideos.org as a registered member in April of 2010 after watch a good number of movies. About a month after I joined, I noticed the site was actually a wiki. I became an Editor, and proceeded to work on a few things on the wiki. My personal life became chaotic, and I didn't visit the site that often. Early in June, I became a Site Developer since I'm proficient in PHP/MySQL. Around the same time, I also became a Vested Editor. In August 2010, I became a Admin assistant, overseeing the site's code and wiki editors.

After leaving due to personal reasons, I returned in early August 2018 to work on a project. I was then reinstated as an Admin Assistant to assist with site code and will be working along side Mothrayas.

This is a list of my current projects on TASVideos:

  • Documenting site code
  • Editing wiki pages
  • Implementing new features
  • General bug fixes
  • Home Page Overhaul
  • Encoding new submissions*

  * I usually only encode submissions that have a good chance of being published.
  This means the movie has to be entertaining as well as technical.
  I generally have a good eye for spotting improvements on games I know well, but I'm still learning.
This list is a list of all my future projects, in no particular order or priority.

  • Home Page Overhaul
  • Documenting site code (Ongoing)
  • Working on special project*

  * More information about this later!
This is a list of all my past projects on the site. They are listed in order from the first completed project.

  • Removed homepages from WikiOrphans
  • Added Vested Editor Role/Rank and removed Movie Editor Role/Rank

These are the movies I have published. If there is an issue with any movie, please contact me. Latest publications on top.

Here at TASVideos we make perfect movies... and then we beat them again — this time by 1 frame, which, considering the fiercely competitive history of this run, is actually significant.

And if watching this TAS on an emulator isn't satisfying enough, why not see it played back on a real console!

Note: Using RTA timing, this run clocks in at 4:54.03.

This movie showcases the competition mode of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Here, nitsuja and mmarks aim to complete each level in the fastest time possible. This run is also the fastest anyone has completed each level in Time Attack.

We also have similar runs with Sonic and Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Tails, Knuckles ring attack, Sonic 100%, Knuckles 100% and Sonic and Tails on NewGame+.


Watch this TAS be played back on a real Genesis.

- Takes damage to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Batman returns to stop the Joker's latest insane criminal plot once again, 20 seconds faster than the last time!

This game is one of those grappling hook games, with which Batman can just swing through areas quickly. Much of the improvement comes from bunnybathopping Batman's way through levels and somewhat improved boss fights.

Tom and Jerry in Mouse Attacks! was released by Ubisoft (known for their Prince of Persia games for the PS2) in 2000 for the Game Boy Color. Tom has captured and locked up five of Jerry's friends, and it's up to the little brown mouse to save them.

A series of glitches and tricks are used to quickly obtain all the special items, free Jerry's friends, and defeat each level's boss. The author, Mukki, explains these on the movie's submission page.
