Hi-res dumping

You can use DeSmuME git#41e9b16 for hi-res dumping. To avoid SRAM issue, follow these steps:
  1. Delete SRAM files and boot Spirit Tracks on DeSmuME.
  2. Pause emulation and load the movie.
  3. Create savestate and unpause emulation.
  4. Load the savestate.

Why did you use Japanese version?

  • In Japanese version, some puzzles in Tower of Spirits (ToS) are shortened or deleted.
    • In ToS 5th visit, 2 puzzles in 20th floor are shortened.
    • In ToS 6th visit, 25th floor of NA, AUS and EU version is optional. ToS 6th visit starts from 30th floor in Japanese version, not 31st floor.
  • I'm Japanese.


Commentated video is available. (Japanese only)


The movie here ends upon defeating Malladus.
For publication, you can use epilogue extended movie file. (DeSmuME 0.9.9a movie, mic sample included)

GoddessMaria: Hello, Karage, and welcome to TASVideos!
For your first submission, you have done well on this. The optimization was solid and didn't appear to be any gaps in the overall gameplay quality. Audience reception was also overall positive. That being said...
Accepting this into Moons.
Stovent: Joint Publication with Spikestuff.
