RTA timing ends on Frame 1630, the last input that enters the final room (as per the rules), although I'm not sure if this is appropriate for TASVideos timing and if the final room can be treated as an epilogue section or not.
ENCODE/PLAYBACK INSTRUCTIONS: The same caveats largely apply as my K.O.L.M. submission, although this one actually runs way way better.
  • The recording WILL play and display on-screen with the release version of libTAS stated above, and can be verified that way, but it will NOT encode- the console will spam errors, and the output video will be totally broken.
  • The recording will encode on an interim version of libTAS, with "Interim 9204a7d6 (2023-09-14)" (artifact link) being used to produce the temporary encode above.
  • Required arguments: "-g gl --no-gui". Vulkan does NOT work, even for encode; software rendering can be on or off, doesn't matter.
  • File SHA-256: 7ED7837AFC132CF2021EE0F387A6ABD4A6908D76A448F6C887A76E427AEE3094
  • The Armor Games sound plays twice at the beginning.
  • The final room has rendering issues, but nothing that affects sync or gameplay in any fashion whatsoever.
DESCRIPTION: Good god this game is broken. Only one new tech is used as compared to the original K.O.L.M., pause abuse; it is used at the beginning of the run to skip mandatory dialogue and take control of ROB earlier than otherwise possible, and to be able to get through sun areas where you would otherwise instantly die. Decreased time over RTA comes from superior execution, such as not being distracted/confused by the visual noise from the pause spam, pause spamming as little and as briefly as necessary, etc. This took me roughly two hours to record, discounting the time I spent pissing around or responding to Discord messages and whatnot.
