This one syncs fine too. I didnt complete the mission, but I did get like 5 kills in and no desync issues.

This seems to work pretty well.

I test pressing start at earliest frame, I test save states in the race(I get 4 take downs in a row to get my boost meter up, make save states and load them during the camera change when performing a take down), try to get as many near miss as possible(with this game, its very finicky do that).

I dont complete the first race, as this was just a test. I'll probably finish it later.

As always, dont expect it to be optimal.

Using DSHawk branch of course.

Unoptimal, mainly because its just for testing purposes. I test making save states during load screens and loading the save state, making a save state during combat and using that, on the field and such. No desync issues so far. I tested slow motion as well. I did have some issues with the touch screen controls where I had to unpause the emulator to make it comfy, but that must just be me using a laptop with no mouse adapter.

And I beat the first mission with 50 seconds left on the clock. When 3 demons remain, the portal closes and a new one opens and it takes a while for it to come making you lose time.. I'm sure that you can get above 1 minute if you manipulate luck and play better than I did. I think I did pretty good, avoided miss shots unless it manipulates luck and avoided getting bombed to lose all energy. On to second mission which appears to be an autoscroller. This will be fun.

Edit I will post an encode tommorrow as I have heard people having trouble with it syncing. Rest assured, it syncs on my end probably because I'm on linux.

I was disappointed to see nobody tased this game. There does exist a playthrough on youtube, but it plays on easy difficulty and I wanted to see it played on expert with tas precision.

Its not completely optimal, I'm not done yet with the first stage, but I will complete this soon. Really grateful to be able to tas on linux!

Its also using a tap image.

I have not tested the script yet, as bizhawk linux lua function seems to be broken, but I believe it should work fine.

How to use, when the cursor is on an enemy that you're targeting, run the script. You don't have to pay attention either as the script will pause the emulator once it succeeds at getting the hit.

Yes, I am planning on redoing the FFVII NES Tas. Im still very curios to see how fast it can be beaten.

Game is a somewhat good tas candidate as you can have enemies kill each other.

Other than that, this game is pretty boring. I'm not sure if I will complete it or not.

The game IS very hard to optimize though(something I didn't put much effort into).

Zip file which contains save state data: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1te-qqCyPHL4NcvtIN8gemr2eJAMg2e/view?usp=sharing

A test tas to demonstrate odd desync behavior. The furthest I've gotten was to luke, leia and yoda face off that ended up with desync. Sometimes leia doesn't appear which happened the first time I reached it. Pretty intense moment too.

To sync as far as I did:

look up mooseswb2part1 for rom(not sure if it matters what rom dump you use as there's all dumped the same way) place the save state file in ~config/ppsspp/PSP/PPSSPP_STATE edit ini file in ~config/ppsspp/PSP/SYSTEM/ppsspp.ini on line FrameSKipUnthrottle to False

open up battlefront 2 once in the native emulator to set location

in native ppsspp, go to controls edit controls and remove unthrottle key in exchange for speed-toggle and set that to tab key. Then set state load to 2 open ppsspp with libtas runtime backup save files in memory - off go under input - configure input and disable fast forward play back and literally hope for the best. Each time you play you'd likely see different things by the time I square off with a bunch of jedi after killing han solo in that alleyway. I do die to obi wan while I kill him at the same time, that's a part of the movie. I know its unoptimized, but this a test and is prone to desyncs. Once fixed, I will redo these with far more optimized.

How far can you get?

While I did beat the world record, somehow someone beaten the first mission by 2 seconds. I also didn't manage to beat all known records in the levels, and I'm honestly not sure why. 3D driving games are difficult to optimize, and I'm not planning on doing this again.

Could someone make an encode for me?

I couldn't figure out how to shoot, and accepted some damage as I didn't see it as much of a time loss and the fact its just a testrun.

That picture puzzle is really easy to solve.

Why can't I proceed? I get past 4 missions, and can't proceed any further..

This is just minute and a half faster than my other wip.

However, while that may not seem like much, this run incorporates a newer route where I get 2 enemies in a random encounter and beat them in the fastest possible way. I also get to buy clouds ultimate weapon without selling anything. I can also proceed with buying tifa's ultimate weapon once I'm out of aeris's house.

In other words, this will be a massive improvement.

8 minutes faster than my 3rd attempt!

I don't know what to say about improving this any further.. I mean, I could restart again and try to manipulate battles to be smaller and get the best equipment and work my way to kalm to buy ultimate equipment, but its so hard to say.. I'm sure I can improve this section more, but routing this game is like routing ffxiii.. But worse..

Very hard game to optimize, already more than 1300 rerecords off movement alone. Duals weren't really manipulated...

I'm just placing this here for safekeeping. Taking a break from the game as those "grand staircase" really started getting old. As well as the repetitive nature of this game.
