Well, this here is going to be the first "New Super Mario Bros. 2" TAS here on this site. The run itself was a little difficult to get through especially with the TAS tools citra has.

Game objectives

  • Aims for the fastest time
  • Emulator Used: Citra Canary 2306 (Latest Update)

Well, I guess since we start from scratch, there are no coins collected unless you progress, so sometimes, the coin counter can waste frames at a few spots, (Post1-T, World Mushroom Entrance, World Flower Enterance, World 6 Enterance and Post 6-T.) but I'm pretty sure that doesn't matter as much.

Got a couple things I would also like to talk about

1-Tower

When approaching the snake block next to the goal, I thought since the snakeblock moves in the same direction that the player is running, it would give me more speed like most platforms would do. Instead it looks like nothing changed. I still got 474 regardless of the outcome so I rolled with it.

6-5

Apparently you gain speed by twirling and jumping off of the seasaws no matter what direction the seasaw is headed. I tried so hard to grab 369, but I don't think the level can get faster than a close 368.

Other comments

This run should be entertaining enough especially since the Tanooki Leaf is being used most of the time. Learned a few things while using it.
I also figured out that you can actually get 475 on 1-T just neeed a little more optimization. However, everything else is just fine. I still loved the outcome. I'll try this again soon once I find more improvements in-game. Enjoy.

feos: Claiming for judging.
feos: Looks good. Really close to the human record, but still more precise, especially in vertical climbing. Accepting.
Spikestuff: Bah, bah.
