It hasn't been noted here yet, but there's an alternate set up to get past Kraid's door that should be an improvement in the any% tas https://www.twitch.tv/chx42/clip/SpotlessHandsomeNeanderthalCmonBruh basically, you can abuse the way the game is loading the rooms. get stuck in the blue door offscreen above the camera. shoot door, morph and roll left (frame perfect left press) the game will load kraid's entryway during the fall and you can slide past without the bug boost. Hacker/randomizer maker MetalMachine put out a lua script that helps visualize offscreen rooms in NEStroid, and that's pretty much how this skip was discovered. There's more info in the NEStroid speedrun discord, and the link to that should be on speedrun dot com's nes metroid page. ps: i didn't work on 100% after all :D --retrogaming2084/Josh

Great job on the new Castlevania TAS challenger!! It's amazing that after all these years, there are new tricks to be found. Appreciate the submission comments too, I wasn't exactly sure what was going on with the new tricks. Happy holidays, y'all

Anyone working on 100% or have plans to start it? I'm dabbling now. No hard commitments. Got about 6 frames saved going into the first blue column. Been speedrunning this game lately and figured the 100% category could use an update on the site.

Haven't watched the whole thing yet, but nice job with the axe! I was wondering when my run /w Phil would be challenged. Cheers--Josh

What do you exactly mean with full rupees, full bombs? Having 16 bombs, 255 rupees in any point of the run or finishing the game with 16 bombs, 255 rupees? I'm not sure this will work with rupees, but it's way to arbitrary.
I'm trying to say those things are arbitrary, and I like the run as is.

I'm sad that this run got cancelled. Of course I have some personal bias about NES Legend of Zelda, but: The luck manipulation and combat was very precise, and it was fun to watch. A great deal of effort was put into this run. I like this variant/ruleset since it shows many rooms and areas that the other runs do not, and it's not too long and drawn out. I feel a run where all keys, bottles, full rupees, full bombs, big shield, white sword, etc. need to be obtained would make the run too long, too redundant and would overstay its welcome. I would rather have seen this run published as a 'full inventory run' or name it as everyone sees fit, and then the debate could continue regarding goals and improvement and what categories or rule-sets would obsolete this tas.

Finally got a chance to watch the run now that I'm back from vacation. Your updated route looks fantastic. As far as the technical aspect of the run, the movements and attacks look spot on. Only one question/comment about the holy water: If memory serves, the holy water doesn't halve the bosses HP value; holy water doubles sub-weapon damage to bosses. Why grab it on LEVEL 4 blob fight? I'm too lazy to re-teach myself all the openMSX commands and test it real quick, but I thought I tried this once in the past.

I didn't have time to watch the whole movie yet, but the run looks very good from what I saw. Love this game. The precision looks excellent! I cringe every time the mudokons barely make it under a meat grinder or just miss a bullet.

The owner of the gambling den is going to go broke if Link has to afford all that stuff!

I just played through MoG the other day. Should be a very rich game for TASing. There are many options to explore such as route, items, resource management, luck manipulation, and taking damage to save time. Should be a good challenge! Let me know if I can help.

Note to everyone who plans to encode: I don't want to see Link moving OVER the doors in the dungeons. The encode of the current Swordless TAS has it, and that looks awful. config > videos... > uncheck "allow more than 8 sprites per scanline"
Agreed. The TAS looks solid! Well played.

My favorites are Lolita, Tropic of Cancer, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. I started to read Pale Fire, now that you mention it, Mukki. I never finished it though.

The run looks very good. I also really like this game. Hats off! Too bad Maria is so broken in this game. Will there be a Richter run from you guys? :)

Lately I have been playing more turn based table top games with friends, but sometimes they are not available to play. I did find ways to play many of the board games I enjoy online though. Perhaps some of you would be interested in playing. BrettspielWelt is one place to play. The name translates to `German board game world` as far as I know. There is a client to download, and registration is optional. BSW has about 40 different games to play, and each game has an online guide to help people with rules and the interfaces. Personally, I prefer to find the rules that come with the games on PDF file as they are not condensed, and the rules are generally better written. I find the interfaces are intuitive. I like to go to BSW to play games I know, learn about some of the finer points, and introduce myself to new games that I have not had the opportunity to play yet. It has a lot of the popular Eurogames that emphasize planning, strategy and resource management over randomness. If I find a game that I like, I will usually order a copy to introduce to friends, or if I am lucky, one of the game stores in town has a copy for sale. I think there are a few language versions available, including English. Here is a link to the site: http://www.brettspielwelt.de/ It has the client, FAQ, command lists, rules, etc. The game designers and publishers grant permission, or sometimes pay BSW to program and host the game (I think) so people can check it out. Some of the designers play as well. Some games that I like to play on it: Caylus, Yinsh, Finsture Flure(Fearsome Floors), Funkenschlag (Power Grid), Go, Dvonn, Lost Cities, San Juan, Settlers of Catan. There are still more that I am interested in trying. My user name is JoshtheGamer so if you get curious and log on, you can find me if I am on by using /tell JoshtheGamer <message> or /ghook JoshtheGamer (joins game room I am in). Users may not speak English, but most do. People on BSW are generally quite good (you may type /info username [caps sensitive] to see the number of games played and win percent). Many are friendly and are happy to help new players. I am also learning how to play Go. Does anyone else play? (I think Bisqwit likes Go if I remember right.) I am registered on IGS, one of the seemingly more popular Go servers, if anyone is interested. Username: JoshuaGo http://www.pandanet.co.jp/English/
