This bk is originally from me just playing the game normally and encountering the glitch.

For one, I am not sure if that works outside of towns but the idea is that you jump, attack, then you can press and hold jump. Holding jump is like jumping in a lot of games where you hold it and you jump higher.

--"WRAM" is for SNES! Other systems have different memory domains. If you are not sure, then just leave memory.usememorydomain("WRAM") out or replace it with the correct memory domain.

Displays all the key names for the controllers. Good for accessing lua table buttons when you retrieve a table via joypad.get(1) for example

No idea where this was from originally.

I am putting this up here for others to judge if the actual inputs look sloppy. First 3d game, and also first 2 player game. The actual video when watched looks fine IMO, but judging from the input.

A couple notes

  • No fine tune rotations. D pad only.
  • In between missions on the world map there are deliberate delays.

Questions or Thoughts?

Interesting cheat code to go straight to 9-4 from the title screen. Hold Down and Start on title screen. Done in 5240 frames in about 1900 rerecords. This is not compatible with tasvideos rules since this level select is not intended for normal play.

1) Lag sucks. Probably will not do anything further with this game since just trying to manage lag would take up all my time and that is not fun. 2) Last boss can definitely be down 2 frames faster at least, tasstudio just crashed when I had done it, and not going to redo it. MIGHT be possible to do it in 7 jumps like the SMS tas one, but I don't know.

Having trouble extracting , modifying the field in the rerecord count header, then compressing it again. Bizhawk crashes when loading it.
