Have you ever thought "I want to be a Judge, but I don't think I have the qualifications or the time commitment to do it"? The new Reviewer role might be perfect for you! Reviewers make up a trusted panel of experienced community members, working alongside Judges to curate what content makes it onto TASvideos. They are not able to directly process submissions like Judges. Instead, their role is to streamline the overall judging process by providing first pass reviews of workbench submissions. Examples of what Reviewers can do include verifying that input files sync and checking for any obvious mistakes in routing and optimization. They are also given a much bigger voice in discussions over difficult judgements and possible changes to our submission rules. For more information on the role, there's an in-depth writeup on the Judging wiki page. If you'd like to be a Reviewer, please contact Samsara, and then expect to wait for several hours because she's really bad at both sleeping and checking site DMs.

The recent release of libTAS 1.4.3 significantly improved support for Ruffle, a Flash Player emulator in active development. Since then, several full TASes were made of Flash games using Ruffle running in libTAS with confirmed sync for multiple users, proving that it is a reliable and stable TASing workflow. Because of this, we are now officially supporting and accepting Flash submissions! For those of you interested in creating and submitting Flash TASes, our Resource page for Ruffle contains highly important information that you need to know: https://tasvideos.org/EmulatorResources/Ruffle You can get libTAS 1.4.3 here: https://github.com/clementgallet/libTAS/releases/tag/v1.4.3 Ruffle nightly builds are located here: https://github.com/ruffle-rs/ruffle/releases Also, check out our first Flash submission: #7368: rythin's Flash Meat Boy in 02:51.10

libTAS 1.4.3 Released, more info here
The current Pokémon: Yellow Version speed record uses heavy glitches that allow the player to catalog every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? Yes! In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program which greatly expands the game and shows off cool stuff from elsewhere too. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments.
This movie improves upon the predecessor by using a payload which builds upon the environment in the game highlighting new areas, new Pokémon, and shows off a lot more that can be done with arbitrary code execution than displaying the digits of Pi and some minor animation. For more runs that involve arbitrary code execution, see our published list of movies which execute arbitrary code as well as discussion in our forum.
This video includes segments from some terrific games, including Pokémon Yellow, Gold, and Crystal, as well as from Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, Tetris, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. Please check those games out.
This video includes music samples from The Orange Box soundtrack. If you've enjoyed what you've heard, you can purchase The Orange Box soundtrack from Amazon or iTunes.
This video includes a clip from SpongeBob SquarePants (season two), which can be purchased in its entirety from Amazon or iTunes.
