About this game

This is Race Game sold by Square in 1999. For details, please read my previous submission or wikipedia.

Emulator

  • PCSX-RR v0.1.3
  • TAS Soft Graphics Plugin 0.2
  • TAS Sound Plugin 0.2 (When movie playback, I recommend using Eternal SPU Plugin etc. It provides superior sound without desync.)
  • SCPH-1000.bin

ROM Version

(U) ROM's 9th stage "Fantasia" is very easy because of many guardrails which don't exist in (J), so I used (J) ROM.

Aims for in-game time instead of real-time

Time attack mode shows result: lap time and course record etc. I stop input a few seconds to show result window.

Starts from a saved state or SRAM

This run uses save data to use fastest secret character "Invincible". This become usable after done story mode 9 times. Preliminarily handicap is on by changing option setting. This raise maximum speed about 50km.

FractalFusion: Replaced movie file with one that supposedly works with this verification movie: http://winback.web.fc2.com/tas/chocobo_racing_invincible_46118/chocobo_racing_verification.zip
Mukki: Judging...
Mukki: While I agree with DarkKobold's comment that a run based on a compromise between both movies would probably be the best goal for our purposes, there doesn't seem to be an obvious solution to this. This movie is a good example of what should be expected from a newgame+ run. The incredibly fast character and the extra track make this worth watching independently of the existing publication. Accepting for publication.
sgrunt: Seeing as I handled the other run, I might as well do this one too.
