LOL, already there's a silent no voter. Reveal yourself. I loved this run. I'm glad to see it submitted. Great job, thanks for making it. Easy yes vote.

Zero stars in SM64. Navi dive (escape via water in the Lost Woods) in OoT. Some other small things.

At least he correctly identified you as the DoT skip finder. You'd be surprised at how much ignorance still exists about that. Enjoyed the video overall though. Makes me really want to see a new TAS done at some point. Maybe I'll try to do that over Christmas if I have time.

This was a really entertaining TAS to watch. Reading through this discussion has made me sad though. I'll never understand why a lot of people I see posting on discussion threads can't seem to lighten up enough to enjoy these amazing pieces of art for what they are instead of arguing over categorization and pointless technicalities.
This is what most of the discussion on this website is, though. They love technicalities and pointless distinctions. I completely agree with what you're saying - if someone wants to later beat the run, there's nothing stopping them. Until that happens, it makes a lot of sense to have a good run on the site, even if it's not 100% optimised. They've done this in the past anyway, like publishing that suboptimal OoT TAS by abeshi years ago just because nobody else had put one out with the then-current route. I wasn't happy about this at the time, but in hindsight, I think it was the right move. It would also encourage more people to get into TASing, knowing that they don't have to be 100% optimal on their first try.

I hate to be "that guy", but my post is going to be very negative so feel free to skip it if u enjoyed this run and don't feel like reading pure sadness. This submission makes me disappointed to even have an account here. This is not what I signed up for at all. How the fuck did we even get to this point? The OoT topic on the forum here has been dead for a long time. Nobody has even expressed any interest in TASing the any% route even though the old TAS is outdated, yet this bullshit gets submitted and it's even fairly well executed. why? cause fuck me thats why.
All you ever do is pester people about making TASes or complain that ones you like aren't being worked on. You've been on this site for almost a decade and haven't contributed a single run. If you want a new OoT any% TAS so badly, make it yourself. I really liked this run and voted yes. The more TASes, the better. It shows off tons of unique stuff that you wouldn't see anywhere else, which is reason enough to publish it.

Agreed with MrWint. This is a speedrun. The version that saves the most time should be published. Come on, are we really going through what happened in 2012 with my OoT TAS? Where a lot of the site refused to accept it because it was on the Japanese ROM, despite it saving 12 minutes in text alone. This is seriously just "PAL isn't the 'original'" (dumb argument, a lot of us live in PAL territory and the PAL version would be the one we played first anyway). The judgement should be overturned IMO and the rules should be edited to say that whichever version gives the fastest time should be preferred. A lot of people on this site love to go on and on about how things are subjective because it justifies them arguing about the most inane rubbish for 10+ pages. Let's just make the rules clearer, so it becomes objective. The fastest version of a game should be what's used.

Really enjoyed this TAS (even though the hack itself is the pits). Voted yes.

I am just gonna sum up that with runners from Banjo Kazooie now saying that they would prefer to use mupen, that makes it OoT, Mario64 and Banjo Kazooie. Pretty much 3 of the most popular n64 games who all don't wanna use bizhawk. I personally hope this bizhawk only policy gets abandoned from TASvideos
Agreed. It's been a disaster. I think you should switch to Mupen. They'll definitely allow you to submit it from that. The reasons you gave for using Mupen are already compelling, but there's no way they won't want an any% for a game as popular/loved as this, so it'll be accepted.

If it only saves about 20 seconds, I would say just continue on PAL (unless there are other route changes that only work on NTSC or something). I'd say just TAS it on Mupen but the fact that this clip works easily on that is an emulation problem and similar things can be done in other locations that either don't work on console, or are much harder to do, IIRC.

The solution is obvious. The "BizHawk or bust" rule is a failure, and people who actually TAS N64 games clearly dislike it. Allow Mupen (even if BizHawk is still preferred), or risk not getting new N64 runs on your site. Easy.

Thanks for the heads up. Photobucket has been a crock for many, many years now (ever since direct linking became basically impossible). Updated my avatar.

The best solution to something like a TAS of OoT or SM64 being done on Wii VC and published here is to have it officially be considered a Wii game, but have it still show up in the N64 list, just with a note on the publication saying that it was done on VC. Most people who are looking for an SM64 or OoT TAS will check the N64 section, so just have the publication show up in both Wii and N64.

And exceptions should never create precedents.
NO THIS IS TASVIDEOS ALL RULES ARE ABSOLUTE AND WE MUST FOLLOW THEM LIKE ROBOTS THE RULES COME BEFORE THE TASES

Loved it. Fantastic improvement, great job! Hope the silent no voter will give their reasons. Something tells me it'll be rule related... Seems to be a trend in these MST TAS threads, LOL.

If you guys are happy having a run that's outdated by 5 years, that's fine. Rules shouldn't be absolute though. It's obvious the site would benefit from publishing the new run.

An exception should definitely be made for that MST TAS so it can be submitted here. It was awesome, and my run is really outdated at this point.

This is a really cool run and was very impressive, so I voted yes. I really think any improvements should start from SRAM though and follow the fastest route possible. It's always a good idea for TASes to be as close (route and rule-wise) to the console counterparts when possible.
