Submission Comments
The unasked-for sequel to the Family Feud TAS, now with less N-words! This time around, a fourth round is also played, made possible by some multiplayer shenanigans and intentionally messing up a bit. This TAS has new questions being answered, complete with ridiculous answers and a breakdown of the text recognition program.
  • Emulator used: Bizhawk 2.6.1
  • Uses luck manipulation
Warning: this TAS contains some coarse language, so keep that in mind when watching.

The part where you learn stuff

Breaking the text recognition program

The text recognition program only checks if the letters of answers are in order, not what's in between, probs to account for spelling mistakes (also: you can usually replace 't' with 'd'). We can abuse this. Example: if the answer is 'ice', 'the incredibles' will also work. This is because the game reads it as 'the InCrEdibles'; it ignores the non-capitalized letters here, thus you are left with 'ICE'; a valid answer.

Comments

Beginning

At the beginning of the movie, the number of players is set to 2. This is done to make the fourth round possible without too much delay. The bullseye round is skipped, in order to get straight to the fun part of the TAS. The family names are set to A for family 1 and B for family 2.

The questions

Some luck manip here to get good questions. In round 3, the last answer is intentionally skipped, to be able to get round 4.

End

At the end is the fast money round. Not much to say here.

Samsara: Judging.
Samsara: It seems like all relevant constructive criticism has already been received, as the thread has more or less just devolved into argument baiting and actual unironic use of the term "snowflake". Since I don't see the quality of the feedback improving, I am cancelling the submission to dissuade further negativity. PP Unknown, I apologize for how this submission was treated.
