- Playaround
- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Forgoes time-saving damage
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Tekken Force, a paramilitary organization protecting the Mishima karate fighters, is nearly obliterated by the mighty Ogre. Heihachi Mishima's only hope is his grandson Jin Kazama, who lives with his mother Jun, unaware of his legacy. When the Ogre attacks his home and presumably kills his mother, Jin seeks out his grandfather and learns the martial arts of the family. On his nineteenth birthday, Heihachi announces the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, hoping that Jin will use the opportunity take out the meddlesome Ogre.

Tekken 3, like its predecessors, is a versus fighting game. New features include prominently featured side-stepping, allowing characters to retreat into the background and back during fights, more combo throws, fifteen more characters, and reduced jumping capabilities to allow for more realistic combat. Also included are two minigames: Tekken Force, a beat-em-up stage that unlocks a new character, and Tekken Ball, a beach volleyball variant where characters are hurt by the ball.

This run features Mokujin, who first appears in this game and later appears in all but Tekken 4, where he is temporarily replaced by another character named Combot. Unlike Mokujin, Combot can only mimic a different character's moveset for every match instead of every round. Mokujin is meant truly to test how well you know who you are, how well you can play as said character, whether you can play the matchups you are given, and whether you can keep the opponent from guessing which character you are.


Note: The credits are missing due to an emulator glitch.

While this movie by Spikestuff seems slower than his previous TAS, it is in fact faster by 0.03 seconds in in-game time. This is because the game improperly lags during the True Ogre fight in the emulator used in the previous publication (PSXjin). This run was done on BizHawk's PSXHawk core called Octoshock, which doesn't have the aforementioned issue. Not much has changed otherwise.

This is an improvement of 25.41 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to setting the game to 1 Round and mainly focusing on ingame time.

Was out of general curiosity, to see if I can keep the focus on IGT as well as knocking down the TAStime too.

This won't be submitted due to it reaching the same IGT (which will never change).

No encode will be provided, DO NOT provide an encode.

Edit: Found out under a year later, that this is an 8"85 for some damn reason. When I completed it, it was infact an 8"80. So something goofed.

It's no 8"80, but Hunting Swan, in my opinion the hardest 1 hit KO to execute.

The .bk2 file provided is Nina, it's still possible through Anna due to them sharing pretty much the same moveset and speed.

6426 Frames, I broke it as always.

Not submitting as this accomplishes jack shit.
Spikestuff learns how to save 1 frame in menu to save 157 other frames.
Don't provide an encode

This is also the stupidest thing, due to the fact screwing around in menu will either improve or worsen the TAStime.

Still got that 8"83 (526) IGT though so party~.

And this has no "entertainment" put in it, because it doesn't effect RNG and because this is a dead version.

This is a Lua file for Tekken 3 made by Spikestuff & simplified by samurai goroh

Mmm, seems that I made an error on lines 59 & 63. Instead of:

     gui.text (  16, 85, character.moku1 )
It should be:
     gui.text (  16, 85, character*moku1* )
Note: Change asterisk for brackets

And similar on line 63 (change dot for brackets)...

10"61, or better known as 635.

Fights: 6 (51), 7 (72), 9 (73), 10 (96) & 11 (54) are all shocking.
Can this be improved on further while manipulating the RNG for fastest In-game time?
Or will this be the TAS that's going to be submitted?

Reminder that Paul is still shit even with manipulation.

Japanese Version
Bios: SCPH1000

A 11"86 (712) compared to Yoshimitsu's 10"51 (645)

Even if you get the fastest fights (63 frames) you would still be slower than Yoshimitsu.
A perfect game involving the fastest possible fights for Paul creates the total frame time of 693 for Paul. 48 frames a fight is the fastest you can get with Yoshimitsu (528).

Note: A 47 is a rare occurrence. It only occurs when the timing bugs.
