Color a Dinosaur is coloring software for the NES, in which users are tasked, as the name implies, to color one of the 16 dinosaurs present in it. It also has a cult following on TASVideos, as throughout the site's history, most of the TASes were submitted on April Fool's Day, and thus spawned inside jokes on the site, especially by older members.
Here, warmCabin saves 28 seconds on the previous four color theorem run by using a script that utilizes a tuned graph algorithm to figure out the most optimal coloring pattern to use for each dinosaur. For more details on the algorithm used, you can read the author's notes.
