SM64TAS History

Super Mario 64 is one of the few games that seems to draw people to this site by the thousands. The ability to beat the game with only 16 stars was jaw dropping. We are now down to 0 stars.

This was the first published Super Mario 64 run. In its day it was an astonishing demonstration of breaking the game: MIPS the Rabbit and poor collision detection were used to get the second key early, and a "Backwards Long Jump" trick was used to get up the supposedly-infinite staircase and access the last level early. This "Backwards Long Jump," or BLJ, became one of the most important moves in any% Super Mario 64 speedruns, while MIPS is now, sadly, entirely missing from them.

Ever wonder if Mario was actually a ninja wearing blue overalls? Now you know.

This run completes the game after collecting a mere 16 stars. It was originally intended that the player collect a minimum of 70 to finish, but a few bugs allow Mario to pass through doors and barriers that require a minimum number of stars to open.

Mario has a very wide range of skills for mobility and some of the physics of this game are easily abused by an experienced player.

(Almost) Exactly a year later AKA (Mitjitsu) produced a run that was 46 seconds faster than Spezzafer's orginal run. It was largely improved by better precision via use of version 0.6 of the TAS input plugin, which introduced a "virtual analogue stick," as well as new glitches and strategies.

As soon as AKA's run was published, Rikku submitted a run that was 7 seconds faster. The improvements largely came from better precision and new strategies. The was the lead-off of what became known as the "SM64 wars".

AKA quickly responded with another 7 second improvement. Most of the time was saved by not saving after collecting a star and taking a new overworld route. Rikku then posted a 3 second improvement, which was the subsequently published version.

This 10-second improvement is half made of no saving and a different overworld route, and half of just framewise optimizations. It was arrived into by AKA (now known as Mitjitsu) and Rikku together.

The rules of the SM64 wars were about to change. It seems if you can't beat them join them: that is, team up with someone else. AKA, teaming up with Swordless Link, managed to come up with new stars, strategies, routes and optimizations, which lowered the previous time by 16 seconds.

This version of Super Mario 64 changes the route of the previous runs.

MIPS became obsolete, so to speak, with the new-found ability to use the BLJ to bypass the door he used to guard. Not needing MIPS meant not needing the first 15 stars of the 16 star run, resulting in an astonishing 1 star run. This was a kind of Holy Grail for players, and the new movie by AKA and Swordless Link sparked shock waves of awe.

Well if you need 1 star, why do you need any? This was the question answered later by the authors of the 1 star run, with their new 0 star run.

The latter encode and torrent provides high quality encodes.

The records above had been further whittled down in time by minor time savers (usually related to the now-pervasive BLJ). Click on the "obsoleted" links in the above movies to watch each epoch transform, leading to faster and faster times. Eventually, even the idea of having to collect two keys was considered too slow, resulting in yet one more major improvement.
