The Adventures of Bayou Billy is my early tas.And it is still a multi-mode game like Vice - Project Doom [3133] NES Vice: Project Doom by Sonikkustar, Alyosha in 12:30.23.This run is 3884 frames(about 64 seconds) faster than the previous published [988] NES The Adventures of Bayou Billy by Xipo in 17:14.10.At the beginning,I find the last Gemini BOSS will lost much HP if Billy has no equipment(no weapon and no clothes).Then I also find other improvement point,especially in stage2 and stage7.
Stage1:It is Fighting Mode.Improvement comes from details and better play.
Stage2:It is Shooter Mode.Please don't think it is automatic scroll.The scroll moves with counter $005F.Counter $005F add 1 after shoting one enemy.And enemy's appearance follows the 64 frames rules.So Heavy Manipulates luck plays a
crucial role.
Stage3:It is Fighting Mode.It's describe is same as Stage1.Stage4 and Stage5 are Racing Mode,I won't explore it in this article.
Stage6:It is Fighting Mode.There are two glitchs in this stage.We can make the bad guy(on white) disappear if he stand outside the sceen.We can make the bad guy(on green) ignore our existence if Billy stays in special place.
Stage7:It is Shooter Mode.The Counter is also $005F,but the rules is not unchanged 64 frames.The rules is random.I'm lucky in that I find $0461 is the rules frames.Then it is Heavy Manipulates luck turn.
Stage8:It is Fighting Mode.It's describe is same as Stage1.
Stage9:It is Fighting Mode.I make Billy lost his equipment according to plan.
