explain every single important glitch in the title.
haha, I don't have that kind of time -nor in my approximation should such a lengthy writeup be required to enjoy the movie. Your pasted explanations strike me as sufficient for the viewing purposes of anyone curious or unfamiliar with basic building-block exploits in this title. If you'd personally like to TAS this game and seek more info, perhaps ask in the community discord?

Your replies strike me as sufficient enough to make you sound like you don't want people to watch your movie. If you'd personally like to have people watch your movies, perhaps learn how to explain stuff not everyone might know? No vote.

Would also like some more info! if it took 8 years to route, then it's not so straightforward.

At least I'm not fucked up like you Samsara.
Honestly no matter how low she went she won’t be as low as someone who defended an actual pedophile, someone who doesn’t believe in climate change, someone who doesn’t believe racism exists or the importance of BLM, and the list fucking goes on. I’d stop typing if I were you. Go ahead and fall back into personal insults like you did with Samsara, that’s all you can do.

I still think [4137] SNES Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose! by EZGames69 in 19:49.99 should be starred. And I will quote Memory's post in the movie's thread because I couldn't have written it better.
Memory wrote:
This TAS is excellent. To me it achieves something that is very difficult to achieve in TASing, personality and style. To me this movie feels like a cartoon character bending the laws of reality to mess with their opponent, which in this case is the game itself. Think this classic Looney Tunes scene. It's ironic or perhaps fitting considering the source material of the game here. The TAS messes around with the world, defying gravity, making sounds in tune to the music, even breaking the background in the train level. I definitely laughed in response to the start of the balloon level where he flew up past the top of the screen to reach the end early. Flying can sometimes feel cheap with TASes but here it feels satisfying. It is used to great effect in the playarounds during autoscrollers, which leads me to my one singular disappointment with the TAS. I feel the playaround on the train level loses a bit of... Well... Steam, and slows down towards the end. The TAS also has some good variety to it, with a number of methods of movement on display. The more gimmicky stages didn't distract from the core gameplay, but actually added to the experience. Sure the gameplay in the American football section was fairly simplistic, but it felt superhuman jumping over all the opposing players regardless. The one potentially negative segment of the game was the roulette and the minigame chosen by the roulette after each level, but honestly, I found it kinda comical how Hamton was abused and they're honestly rather short. I would demand this movie for stars if not for the playaround slowing down, but I still feel it's strong regardless.

Honestly I agree with everything you said, I would also like to see this movie in Stars. The only downside of the TAS is the slowing down in some parts, like you mentioned, but nothing that actually bothered me. it was entertaining throughout the entire thing.

Thanks a lot everyone :) As for the dark areas, I'm fairly sure that's my fault with the temp encodes. Some areas that appear really dark when I view my videos aren't that dark in the actual game, so it really would depend on the publishing process. Also the judge/anyone who views the actual movie could confirm if there are many annoying dark areas.

I followed this PR for a couple of weeks before it was merged, and when I first saw it was I grabbed the latest binary to try it out. I had planned to do some specific movement in Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness, just for showcasing that a TAS is now "possible"- unfortunately the emulator wasn't on my side. First off the emulator is not user friendly at all- everything is scattered around and just doesn't feel "stable" At first I couldn't figure out how to use the savestate hotkeys properly (thought it would be a separate hotkey for each slot, but apparently there's one hotkey for saving in the "current slot", one for reloading from the "current slot" and the last for choosing the "current slot"- this had me mixing up slots quite often and honestly got me frustrated from the first 30 minutes. - There's some sort of fade in effect every time you reload a savestate- that was especially annoying when trying to skip the first FMVs and going through menus because every time I reloaded a savestate the screen would go blank (for the fade in effect)- I'd advance 1 frame to see if the FMV had started or not. I kept seeing a blank screen, advance 1 frame then save and reload sometimes. I kept seeing blank when the FMV wad actually running. Of course it went on until I reached about 2 seconds into the FMV before I realized what was happening- then I was taunted again by the menu which on has a fade in effect of its own which made it hell. - After getting through the menus and getting in-game the game played fine. Took me quite a bit of time to get about 20 seconds of gameplay (out of 2-3 minutes showcase) but I was done because the savestate system was just so frustrating. I try to replay the movie and, surprise: desync. About 5 seconds of gameplay went properly before a desync happened out of nowhere. I tried replaying the same movie from a savestate from after the desync spot and hit another desync after that... - I ended up just settling for the 5 seconds that actually worked- "time to dump a video"~ Woops "No."~ PCSX2 It crashed. Twice. After fighting with it for some time I ended up trying a lossless avi, and it worked. Kinda. It dumped audio and video into separate files- when joining these the audio wasn't in sync with the video. At that point I rage quit and deleted everything related to PCSX2. - Just wanted to share my experience with these new tools- and they are everything but useable.
