F-Zero X is the 3D sequel to the popular SNES hovercraft racing title. It offers a wide array of cars, tracks and play options, and has had an active speed-running community since its release in 1998.

This TAS completes the 6 tracks of the Jack Cup in time trial mode, where you choose any track to drive solo aiming for fastest possible completion of 3 laps according to the in-game timer, accurate to the millisecond. A special input sequence is used to unlock all cars (you normally unlock cars by playing in grand prix mode).

This TAS saves 1'10"614 (in-game track totals) over the previous Jack Cup TAS by Lord Tom. For a per-track comparison, check the author's comments.

Death Race is a standalone challenge within F-Zero X, so a standalone movie seemed the best way to present it. The goal is simple: destroy the other 29 ships as quickly as possible according to the in-game clock.

This TAS completes the F-Zero X Death Race as quickly as possible, with a time of 5.866s. This improves the prior fastest TAS time of 8.927 by Katsukawa Sojuro aka Xenos (who reports an unpublished time of 6.993s by throwing the car off the side as this TAS does).

The unassisted world-record is 24.745s by Daniel, played in PAL (20.621s converted to NTSC). There's no video of that time, but this video by the same author is almost as fast.

F-Zero X is the 3D sequel to the popular SNES hovercraft racing title. It offers a wide array of cars, tracks and play options, and has had an active speed-running community since its release in 1998.

This TAS completes the 6 tracks of the Jack Cup in time trial mode, where you choose any track to drive solo aiming for fastest possible completion of 3 laps according to the in-game timer, accurate to the millisecond. A special input sequence is used to unlock all cars (you normally unlock cars by playing in grand prix mode).

This TAS improves the "cup-time" by 19.088 seconds over the awe-inspiring unassisted world records. In addition, each track beats all known individual-track TAS's - specifically those by Jimmy K Thai (JKT), a ground-breaking player and long-time world champ.

WIP of the first 4 tracks of the Queen Cup.

Sector Alpha will almost certainly need re-doing, at least to optimise the DTDs. Blood Hawk may potentially be faster which will warrant a complete re-do.

Red Canyon 1 and Devil's Forest 2 are both fine as is.

Mute City 2 is basically a very old and unoptimised demo that will need a complete re-do but I (reluctantly) included it anyway. A faster strat or strat variant might also be possible.

I've been working on this off and on for the past two years, trying to make time-trial TAS's of each track. Well, there are 24 tracks and each one so far has taken 20-40 hours, so not likely I'll ever finish, but I'd hope to get some interest for a Jack Cup run, individual level table or some such since it's quite a great game.

Currently, I finish the first 2 tracks, and 2/3 laps of the third. Thanks to WMJ and all the rest at mrfixitonline for help and strats!

Enjoy!
