This is just shortest input time, not double-drawing the solution for puzzle 100. If it's better to judge the shorter version, use this one.

This program does a brute-force search for solutions for Polarium. It uses some features to eliminate worthless solutions:

- "battle": is looking for solutions covering exactly the same tiles, having the same (current) endpoint, having the last two directions identical. Only keeps the lowest score.

- remove unsolvables: obvious, can be improved for sure.doesn't make use of parity for example.

- remove needlessly complicated: disallow wasting the border. currently missing the special case about edges.

- remove bad starting points: we can safely assume that the starting point always has a "better" row/col - position than the endpoint.

- remove too bad score: don't brute-force through the solutions if we already found the shortest solution, and the score of the current puzzle is bigger than the currently lowest score for a solution.

V6.0.1: bug fixed: program now also finds the shortest solution for stage 34, which involves doing the first step onto a row from outside.

full testrun, defeats all levels and all bosses. Game is japanese, but you don't need any reading skills for this one.

Some comments:

I have absolutely no idea how I did the last hit to the first boss...

In the ice level, you need to stay very close to the border of the platforms to jump far enough. You can't just run that close to the border, you must jump there.

If You know some secrets about this game let me know.

just 3/4 through act 1. (if i continue with this speed, the test run requires a few months, and the final run... well, even longer)

still not sure about the goal choice. is 100% kills, 100% collectibles, 100% bonus rooms a good goal choice or not? that would essentially be a tool-assisted longplay. it might be better to just collect all stars, which is enough to play all bonus rooms. i need some opinions on that.

You want to edit something in the middle of your movie without the hassle of manually editing some movie files? This tool is for you!

You want to create a multiplayer TAS with LSNES? Try this one out!

In a future version, this script will also take care about tracking important RAM values. It will make it a lot easier to compare your attempts.

If you want to use this one, you also need the config file.

If you don't understand the functions provided by this script, there is also a manual which is almost as big as the script itself.

Just going for fastest time in this game would be really boring because you can avoid most battles without losing time.

100% is a lot more difficult though. Even in the very first level the fastest solution is definitely not obvious, and the Bonus stages will be even more complicated from a TASing perspective. And with 2 players, there will be a lot of action going on.

Do you think this can become a nice entertaining TAS?

SMV file begins from a snapshot

an alternative strategy for ploktown. if it gets optimized it should be faster than in kooz's run. sadly this isn't the case here. note: the rerecord count is definitely more than 0

Yay, finally all levels are beaten.

13628 frames faster than the published movie so far.

Note: The published movie didn't display the very last final screen, this movie does. This requires pressing 'A' after 6104 frames of waiting for the credits.

If you see any mistake let me know.
