This TAS goes for Fire Flower strats.

In 6-2 we grab a mushroom.

Someone will need to:

  • get FPG in 6-2
  • get a fire flower in 6-3 or 6-4 (6-3 preferred)
  • resync the rest

I hope that we can save 1-2 framerules with FF, as the only other improvements are in 7-4 and 8-4.

I added entertainment from 7-3 on, and found some improvements in 8-4 that force me to waste them.

Someone can resync 8-4 and:

  • add entertainment
  • save 1 or more frames in the first room
  • save 1 or more frames in the walljump room
  • save 1 or more frames in the turnaround room
  • save 3 or more frames in the water room
  • get a good Bowser on top of that.

Minimum time allowed: 10:09.903

  • I'm too frustrated to do this.
  • Also, please upload this to userfiles/WIP page (aka here) when done.

This TAS saved 34 frames over what I got yesterday.

Here's the breakdown:

  • 1-1 to 7-1, as far as I know, is unchanged.
  • 7-2 drains a timeunit (270) and saves 12 frames, thanks to xy2
  • Then I resynced the rest
  • 7-3 saved 2 frames (somehow)
  • 8-2 saved 21 frames due to faster BBG
  • 8-4 water room lost two frames
  • 8-4 boss room saved a frame

With all this, the TAS time is now 10:10.003

  • so mad about this


What improvements are left?

  • 4-2 has 5 frames
  • 6-1 has 10 frames
  • 6-4 has 1 frame
  • 7-1 may have a framerule to save. BBG
  • 8-4 has 1 frame in the first room, 1 frame in the walljump room, has 1-3 frames in the fish room, and 2-4 frames in the water room.

This is the 8th TAS of VS Super Mario Bros 'warps' where I'm involved. This is the fourth one on this site.

  • v1 is on YT
  • v2 is on YT, but the file is lost to history

With the help of dhxo in the first 6 of 16 levels, this TAS has many, many more tricks & timesaves. This is 282 frames faster than my v5 uploaded a week ago.
YT Video not recorded yet! Sorry!

Improvements over v5.1:

  • 1-1: 58 frames
  • 1-2: 9 frames
  • 4-2: 206 frames
  • 7-2: -1 frame (lost a frame)
  • 8-2 should have been 20-21 frames, but no, it's even.
  • 8-4 room 2: 5 frames.
  • 8-4 room 3: 3 frames.
  • 8-4 last room: 2 frames.


Compared to s5564 (aka v3):

  • 1-1: +14 frames (+14f) <----?!?!?! Well, I guess that's the slower timer. Rip.
  • 1-2: -6 frames (+8f)
  • 4-1: Even (+8f)
  • 4-2: -188 frames (-180f)
  • 6-1: -21 frames (-201f)
  • 6-2: -21 frames (-222f)
  • 6-3: Even (-222f) <----Wow! Expected another 21 frames here, but no!
  • 6-4: +12 frames (-210f) <-----hmmm.....
  • 7-1: -21 frames (-231f)
  • 7-2: +22 frames (-209f) <-----Either we have some work to do here, or the firework here crosses a framerule, which means we have work to do here.
  • 7-3: Even. (-209f) <----Interesting
  • 7-4: +12 frames (-197f) <------From this, and 6-4, I can safely deduce that there are no framerules in any castle. This is a very groundbreaking discovery.
  • 8-1: Even. (-197f) <------ WHAT?!?!
  • 8-2: -21 frames (-218f) <-----probably the BBG.
  • 8-3: +22 frames (-196f) <------WHAT?!?!
  • 8-4 Room 1: -1 frame (-197f)
  • 8-4 Room 2: -9 frames (-206f)
  • 8-4 Room 3: -10 frames (-216f) <-----Wow, didn't know I saved that much.
  • 8-4 Room 4: -7 frames (-223f)
  • 8-4 Final Room: -39 frames (-262f) <------Better Bowser.


What improvements can be made?

Aside from FF strats:

  • 4-2 has 5 frames to save. I know this because I got a better time by 5 frames before dhxo uploaded his fm2.
  • 6-1 then has 10 frames to save. That stems off this result.
  • 6-3(?!?!) 1 framerule
  • 7-1 BBG here would save a framerule.
  • 7-2 Somebody, please get a 272, it'd save a framerule!
  • 7-4 probably has something.
  • 8-2 better BBG would save a framerule.
  • 8-3(?!?!) has 1 framerule.
  • 8-4 maybe a frame or two in the first room, and that's it.

With the help of dhxo in the first 6 of 16 levels, this TAS has many, many more tricks & timesaves. This is 272 frames faster than my v5 uploaded a week ago. It goes to the end of 7-3 currently.

  • 1-1: 58 frames saved
  • 1-2: 9 frames saved
  • 4-2: Wrong Warp is huge 206 frames saved
  • 7-2: 1 frame lost. We're so close (1 frame) short of 272.

After this is done, I will experiment with FF (fire flower) strats. I'll probably power up in 4-1 and 6-3.

dhxo helped pull off tricks that I couldn't easily do on my own. He gave me a fm2 up to the start of 6-3, and in just two hours, almost an entire world more completed.

This TAS is at the tail end of 8-3. Four levels are faster, as well as the start (two from dhxo), one is slower, and the rest are even. Overall, this is 93 frames faster so far.

I'll update this when I have the time.

Four months and two weeks after my last TAS on this game, another one comes on to the scene. This is 2.28 seconds slower than the last one uploaded on 2/12/17, but is widely considered to be faster, better, and more acceptable for the TAS community.

Since a different ROM got used, every single level got redone. Two levels are slower (1-1 and 6-4), five break even (1-2, 4-1, 6-2, 7-4, 8-3), and the rest are faster.

  • ROM used: VS Super Mario Bros (VS).nes

Fun fact: if my previous TAS of this game were to be converted to this ROM, it would be ~pi seconds faster.
