I do.

Oh, that's too bad. I personally don't like PointResize, 'cause it looks to pixelated.
... that's the point of it. Any other way to resize is wrong because you don't see the original pixels anymore.

[quote="Ilari"]Out of point and bilinear resizes, point resize wins hands down.[/quote] Why, were there any doubts about this? Point resize for the win. Actually, I am against HD videos to begin with. I prefer 1x resolution, but at least point resize is the one that looks like it.

The movie file is only required to sync on an approved emulator, the fact that it may also happen to sync on real hardware is a pleasing curiosity and nothing more.
And, as you probably already guessed by reading my previous post, I 100% agree with you :)

Also, I think we just explained earlier in this thread that this probably won't sync, which I'm surprised wasn't a factor in the judgement.
To be honest, I'm very surprised too, and I definitely admire Mukki for doing the right thing instead of following all those "baw it won't sync" comments.

Wait, so the poll *was* actually reseted, why hasn't there been any heads-up of sort? People might forget to revote on this...

Thanks for the encode, HappyLee! Amazing improvements are amazing. The whole run is fantastic, in particular I like:
  • the killing spree in 2-2 and 7-2, there are no fish left in the aquarium, lol
  • how the koopa comes back to life in 3-1 after you hit the flag (and the other thing in 7-1)
  • the "200" points rolling over the screen in 6-1
Yes vote and recommendation for at least a moon, preferably a star.

This isn't bad (lol CNZ1), but there are some things I noticed, too. - in general, I agree that bonus stages should have been avoided. If they're left in, one can abuse them, go to the slot machine and get a triple jackpot to get 100 rings. - in particular, the slot machine in ICZ1 doesn't seem to manipulate luck well enough; 100 rings should be obtainable at the first attempt, I think. - weird path in ICZ2. He went out of his way at the beginning to grab a few rings, while there are a lot more at the end when he collected the 100th. - no elevator trick in LBZ1. - the luck manipulation of the glowing spheres bonus stage in LBZ2 doesn't seem optimal. - no 100 rings in SSZ2 *hides*

Because I really like your TAS, it's one of my favourites.

That looks like a generic Japanese font, your browser is probably automatically switching the page encoding because there are some kanji in the video description. Thus, the whole page displays in a different way. Try to fiddle with the encoding settings.

I agree with adelikat, all the listed TASers are indeed very good (and I already voted for a couple of them, in fact), but maybe there are other ones worth mentioning. +1 for reset poll and additional nominations.

Amazing. I wonder, will anyone work on a 100% run of this game eventually?

What happens if 2 (or more) winning entries are tied at the end of the polling stage? Second poll with those entries only?

An example of something similar to a TAS is a Piano Roll, look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5395Y0hwJGU With a Piano Roll you can get a piano to play any notes, even faster or more complex than what a human would be able to play. You can take all the time in the world to prepare your Piano Roll in the way you want it to be, and if there is a mistake, you can re-record it to play in the correct way. Likewise, a TAS is a list of button presses, ideally (or really, see Nesbot and Droid64) fed to a joypad, to play a game as perfectly as possible, even doing things a human can't do. There are several ways to create a TAS, with many tools you can use (hence the name). You can slow down the game and play a single frame (to make it simple, 1/60th of second in America, and 1/50th of second in Europe), you can go back and fix your mistakes, you can find out that the "random" ites are not really random and manage to get the best items all the times, and so on. Nobody prevents you from using all the techniques in the world while you create that list of button presses. Once it is ready, that input should always replay in the same way (still like the Piano Roll); if it desyncs, then something went wrong. Many TAS-related concepts can find examples in simple words in the real world. For example, you might read of a "frame rule" sometimes, e.g. "I can beat that level 10 frames faster but there is a 20 frames rule so it's pointless". Imagine you're on the street, running towards the station because you have to catch a train. Of course you try to run as fast as you can, but... there is a traffic light right next to the station. If you arrive there while the traffic light is red, all your running was wasted because you have to wait for the green. This is a frame rule. If this happens in a TAS, the "runner" can either slow down (but it would look unprofessional and not entertaining) or do something unexpected to keep the viewer's interest, such as collect all the coins, kill all the enemies, run backwards, dance, whatever. As long as you arrive at the traffic light in time for the green. My English is bad but I hope this is clear. Either way, welcome to the forum!

You know, this game is awesome enough, that I wouldn't mind to see both a "glitched" branch with heavy shortcuts and glitch abuse, and a "intended routes" branch, even though I have to admit that I would be more inclined to see the "glitched" branch, to be honest, it can have more of that "wtf" TASing feeling, as a rule of thumb it's never too entertaining to see someone driving on a track without exploiting any glitches, no matter how perfectly he is driving. At least in my opinion.

This is very good and I have no doubts, this is a clear yes vote even as it is. However, I agree that this isn't the "real" ending and I would really like to see the second playthrough, either as a separate movie or even within this same one, the game is short and enjoyable enough.
