It looks like this publication is missing its Star-tier label on the front page. Amazing run :)

Keep knocking out those NES runs Alyosha, and you'll end up almost a shoe-in for the NES TASer of the year award! There's quite a few I would like to see improved/updated on here, especially Lagoon. Don't quite have the time (or the laptop...) to work on any, though.

Gotta go fast! I liked it and gave a 'yes' vote. The music was very good and, like mklip mentioned, the sprites could've used some more...quality control. Not sure where this submission will end up, though (we've already got MM4:MI). Could it obsolete another hack, earn its own spot on the publication list, or...?

It's all good, Kurabu! I had to resync my Landstalker run a couple of times (one was near the end at a 12 minute dungeon with multiple rooms that had to be completely re-done, due to RNG) before it was all said and done. It happens! Before you know it, you'll have this re-synced up, and you & Solarplex will have this shined up and ready for the Workbench :)

One idea might be to defeat Fahl up to the 400 gold level. It takes around 1 minute 10 seconds in the encode, no idea how that compares to later money grinding. I guess massive RNG cheating at the underground casino could also be tested.
At King Nole's Palce w/ the 7 Mimics, I just timed that Nigel grinds 804g/minute going back and forth in that little room. In the Verla Mine four-way junction, the rate is at 330g/minute. It would be worth it to test and see how much time it takes to reach the 400g level at Fahl's during the point in the game where Nigel (43 HP) is ready to take the boat ride around to Verla. I'll go ahead and test that out and edit in the results. edit: Wow, does higher HP make a difference! I stopped at only the 200g level, which took me over 8552 frames to reach, using frame advance and the same tactics. Enemies take far, far longer to kill. The Red and Purple Ninjas, respectively, took 18-20+ attacks each.

Ah, that's too bad. You could have asked, and I or someone would surely have helped out. I understand that attack power is exponential somehow (although more specifics would be interesting) and you also confirmed that there is a random element. How about sword type? How much stronger is the fire/thunder/ice/gaia sword than the previous? How much stronger is a charged attack? (Double?) I guess it will be more relevant for an any% run when deciding which life stocks to get, but there are instances in this run where it could have helped as well. For example, is it worth going into the cave behind the sacred trees at once? At the 19 minute mark there are lizards which take some time to beat. Perhaps the single life stock here does not save any time, and beating the lizards later with higher attack would save more time?
I agree. Going into this, I didn't think any RAM watch would be necessary as I thought attack power was more or less a linear thing. As for the magic swords, it didn't seem like any blade's base attack was stronger than the other (all charged attacks do extra damage, though). I tested this in the Kazalt Cave with the Bronze and Silver Golems and they appeared to take the same amount of damage, no matter which sword I had equipped. However, even if certain blades did have a significant advantage in situations, going in and out of the menu to equip them would cost around 200 frames (or 10 consecutive attacks). As for the Mountain Dungeon sequence break, defeating those lizards would be a bit faster, likely 3-4 hits or 60-80 frames, if I'd enter it after completing Green Maze, instead. However, they also provide 24 Gold which is necessary towards buying the Life Stock in Massan for 206g. More time would have to be spent in the Swamp Shrine obtaining money bags to make up for it. Since enemies at that point only drop 1 or 2g amounts, I'm not sure if that would end up saving much over killing the lizards.

Lol, wow. I don't recall Lavos being THAT hard :D

(I have since obtained increasing peace from this point in my life, although the memories of it have regularly haunted me prior for almost a decade. Nonetheless, I'd like to share it. Apologies if my past actions offend anyone.) A few months after turning 19 in 2003, I enlisted in the United States Army. I was, in large part, influenced by the money and benefits it provided (not wise, in retrospect) and, on a smaller level, had a sense of patriotic duty due to the events of 9/11 still being relatively recent. I visited the local recruiter's office and, a week or so later, was transported to the MEPS facility in St. Louis to complete the ASVAB, a comprehensive physical, and other processing requirements before taking the oath and signing the contract to enlist. I had a considerably high ASVAB score and was able to choose from different sets of MOS's, or jobs in the military. I recall passing up a really good one (air traffic controller) to pick a combat MOS of 19-D, or Calvary Scout. Again, not wise in retrospect. My report date back to St. Louis for OSUT (one station unit training; 16 weeks) training was four months from that point in early January. Upon returning home, my mother was not pleased with my decision (I don't blame her. I didn't even speak with her about considering this, beforehand). We did kind of work through it, though. My circle of friends were proud of me. Fast-forward four months later, me and a barracks full of recently dropped off recruits from the night before were abruptly woken from our brief two or three-hour sleep with someone in full BDU uniform bellowing "WAKE THE F- UP!!!" If I recall right, this person ordered all of us to line up in formation outside the barracks, around 4:30 am in the wintertime in Ft. Knox, Kentucky. We were all wearing just an Army issued pair of PT sweats, our civilian shoes, and a black cap (as that was all we were briefly issued shortly after being herded off the bus, the night before), shivering against the bitter cold. After around 20-25 minutes, no one in uniform came back out to order us further. As it turns out, we were just hazed by a Private from another processing platoon who already had his BDU uniforms issued to him. Still in considerable shock over the upside-down changing of culture, we were led back inside by the older members of the platoon; to maybe get another hour so or sleep before being abruptly woken again for the real morning formation. ...welcome to the Army? Anyhow, I'm going to skip ahead further to about the second month of OSUT training, while abridging details in order to get to the main points. Long story short, I talked myself into going AWOL and heading back home. My naive, 19-year old mind conjured up the battle plan of reporting to sick call in the morning and, on my way back to the training barracks, skipping over to the phone booths about two blocks over and calling a cab to take me to the airport. The cab driver didn't buy my story (as I still, very much, looked and had the demeanor of a recruit instead of an active service member) and refused to take me off base. Shortly afterward, a drill sergeant from a neighboring company caught me hanging around and asked (i.e. ordered) what I was up to. I answered honestly (although thinking back, I might have saved me a world of hurt by lying and telling him I was trying to sneak in a call home). He marched me back to my training barracks and into the company First Sergeant's room. The First Sergeant, after a stern talking to, took me in his civilian truck back to where my platoon was training at that day. I was then taken to one of my platoon Drill Sergeants who found out what happened. You could accurately apply the expression "all hell broke lose" on me, from that point onward. There's some vivid details that I don't recall (or, perhaps, don't want to recall). There was threatening and screaming in my face...and then me being taken to another Drill Sergeant's room were there was more threatening and screaming in my face (with only multiple Drill Sergeants and me inside the room). From that immediate night onwards, I was punished and placed in an extra duty/overnight watch after our platoon would return back from a day of training. I recall being in a very dark, very scared and depressed place. Word got out about my dishonorable act amongst the other Privates in the platoons--I was more or less shunned and treated like Gomer Pyle from Full Metal Jacket. Just about every Drill Sergeant knew my name now and would, from time to time, sneer it out as they saw me pass by. Here's a memory that still stings a bit to this day when I think about it: Shortly after being caught, I was called into my platoon Drill Sergeant's office as he called my mother back at home and ordered me to tell her what I did. As much as I tried to hold back the emotion, I was crying to her over the phone as I explained myself--while that Drill Sergeant mocked my crying sitting in his duty desk directly across from me. Let me tell you: As a man, that cuts deep. That one took time and prayer, years later, to forgive. Anyhow, in those first couple of nights as I was on extra duty/overnight watch, I tried committing suicide. ...not by cutting myself (as, thankfully, I didn't have access to anything like that) or anything overt, but by consuming at least a full bottle of pills that were issued to me while visiting sick call (I did go at other times, prior, for legit reasons). Now looking back, those antibiotic pills didn't do much besides leave me feeling a tad loopy in the morning when I was woken for PT (physical training). But as someone who was not in a sound state of mind, it was a genuine attempt. For my attempt at going AWOL, I was issued an article 15 (military term for non-judicial punishment) and placed on 30 days of extra duty. Long story short, I ended up overcoming this (and I thank God for it) yet still couldn't shake my reputation from the platoon. Even close to two months after the incident and on the eve of graduation, certain guys still verbally abused and threatened me. About a week or two before graduation, we received our orders to where we were to report to next for our active unit. Much to my disdain, the guy who gave me the most abuse ended up being my "battle buddy" for my next duty station at Fort Drum, NY. Furthermore, a lot of the guys who didn't like me were reporting there, as well. Experiencing first-hand how quickly one's reputation changed in training, I became greatly anxious at the thought of reporting to a new, permanent unit and being treated the same (if not worse) for the next 2 years and 8 months. Graduation went well, and family and friends made the long drive to Fort Knox to see me in my Class A's; looking like a sharp, new man. They were proud of me. Once home, I had about 10 days of accrued leave and was finally able to relax some. ...but the thought of returning back to that environment greatly bothered me. I realize I'm likely abridging considerable details, and might not quite be conveying the pain that I endured at that time, but I made the decision about a week into my leave time to not go back to the Army. (I'd love to finish this all in one post, but I've got some things that I need to do today. I'll edit in the rest later on, when I get time). edit: So I believe I've mentioned twice that friends and such were proud of me for joining up and graduating? Well, that changed once I decided to go AWOL for good. ..it's funny how in this world people can go from being proud of you to expressing scorn for you. About three weeks after I went AWOL, I tried to keep a low profile and one of my closest friends caught me out shopping one day. He motioned me over into his truck and we went for a brief drive. When he knew for sure what I did, I still remember what his initial response was to me (when talking about a possible solution to get me out of the Army): "Maybe I can take a sledgehammer to your leg!" The tone was the most hurtful, as he dropped me off soon after our brief conversation. Or, when I sought comfort from another close friend of mine, I made a surprise visit to his house one evening. After his initial shock upon seeing me, he told me that I couldn't even go inside his house because his mom recently started dated an ex-Special Forces veteran who would have likely had me turned in, on the spot. Or, one night as I was driving through town on a weekend night (months after), I was noticed and waved down by an old acquaintance who used to work with me at a restaurant. I was relieved to see him at first--until his then-fiancee yelled out to me from the passenger side seat, "I know you! You're the dumb*ss that went AWOL!" ^ I know these above memories are a bit jumbled. There are the ones that stick out in my mind the most during the 6 months I was AWOL and trying to figure out a solution to get out of the Army. I suppose it would be one thing if these incidents occurred from random strangers--but for them to occur from people I closely knew, especially, caused a significant amount of pain. Anyhow, abridging this story further, my mother drove me 16+ hours to upstate New York so that I could turn myself in to Ft. Drum and be punished and discharged from the military. I spent 2 1/2 months up there, where I was eventually served another article 15 and separated from the Army with a general discharge (under honorable conditions). Like in Ft. Knox, it didn't take long for my reputation as an AWOL soldier to spread amongst the active duty population. Long story short: I didn't make too many friends while there and endured quite a bit of emotional abuse and scorn. After receiving my article 15, I was placed on 45 days of extra duty (basically working from 0600 to 2200 hours, or much later on certain occasions). Winters in Kentucky pale in comparison to those in upstate New York. There were nights where the wind chill dropped down to -30 degrees F, as I was ordered to remain outside and chip ice off the parking lots. ...man. Looking back, it's crazy how much my life changed in the span of 16 months. All in all looking back, I realize that I wasn't ready to commit to something like the military. I more or less made the decision on a whim, and didn't take the proper time to research about it or speak to people who could help me form a more educated opinion. The inner pain it caused was intense; probably a 50/50 split from those I came across in the Army to some of my closest friends who didn't quite have my back "through thick and thin", after all. Again: Apologies to anyone who is patriotic and is offended over my past actions. If I could do it over, I wouldn't have joined. I just wanted to share a dark piece of my past, and to say that I've also made peace with it, forgiven all involved (including myself) to the best of my ability, and have moved on.

I KNEW that I remembered cutting down a Sacred Tree as a kid, without Axe Magic! That's awesome. It'd be great if somebody could record a movie of that so that we can study the input and pull it off consistently. Also, my laptop ended up dying out about 2 weeks ago (I completed the final bit and submission text on our family desktop) :/ The AC charge port shorted out, and I'll either have to find a means to replace it or invest in a new machine. So until further notice, I'll be taking a break from TASing. The any%/'statueless' will be an interesting project; considerably shorter, but a lot more to think about due to Nigel's weaker state.

Looks like our current run got some love on niconico (currently over 4K+ views). Also, the uploader has another recent video of a segmented TAS that improves on some of the stages... (includes visible input)

All I can say is that this is an amazing concept. This sounds like it could eventually help make more accurate emulators, also.

Hey MUGG, I'm curious about your Computer Science program. Where do you see yourself when you're done with it? What would you like to do with it? I think that's very cool to pursue something like that (I'm not too tech savvy, admittedly). I could see that, and being bilingual, taking someone far.

The game won't allow it, unfortunately. Once you win the 400 Gold prize four times, he basically calls you a con-artist and won't allow you to play any more:p Now that I have the full run done to look back on, I do think a better money grinding route would be able to save at least a trip at the two points where I have to stay put for a while and grind (Verla and King Nole's Palace). It was certainly a challenging part of the run to figure out, during the making of.

I am saddened to hear of this young woman's passing. I don't recall ever having the opportunity to interact with her on here, yet I feel a sense of loss due to Rachel being a part of this community of ours. May the good Lord hold her, now and forever, in eternal rest. May all her loved ones also be comforted in this tender time. In fellow mourning, Adam.

Unfortunately, it's a one-time use item (although it doesn't remove from your inventory, once used). It would great if it could be used multiple times! I'll go ahead and edit that detail into the submission text. Thanks for the great feedback so far, everyone!

Nice to hear that you managed to resync it! I'm looking forward to seeing it on the workbench. Two questions out of curiosity: - I understand that monster AI is different when redoing, but does the game also have subpixels which carry over between screens? Otherwise I don't understand why the screens without monsters wouldn't sync. - Have you figured out how is damage is calculated? Is there any random element to it? Are you monitoring monster HP? (Also BTW: it's どうも.)
Hey, Truncated :) I'll try to answer your questions to the best of my knowledge. 1) I'm not sure on the subpixels part, but the screens without monsters or NPCs do tend to re-sync rather successfully. I've only experienced a few cases where re-syncing them up caused them to be off by a frame, or so. I think, in most part, this is due to me having the habit of holding down the directional keys a few frames before input is allowed. So, all in all, they do sync back together pretty well. It just becomes an issue when such screens are sandwiched together between screens loaded with monsters. 2) As Vayarda and Taloof have stated, I have noticed that attack power is determined by some form of exponential calculation (especially once Nigel/Ryle hits 14 and 20 HP). There is a slight random element to it though, in that oftentimes you can defeat a foe or boss one strike earlier if you tinker with the RNG a little more. On boss fights especially, I'll record my ending frame count and time-attack my prior records until I can defeat them at the earliest possible strike. Other than that, I haven't utilized RAM Watch or anything to track their HP (I'm admittedly not very savvy in this area) . Lol. Yeah, my Japanese has gotten pretty rusty :p Also guys, I'll have the run submitted here within a few hours! I've decided to go more with international time and submit the run a bit earlier.

Exposure, on behalf of TASVideos I apologize for the way your run was essentially undercut by another member and obsoleted before you got a chance to have yours even judged. Some people are just extremely self-centered and take no regard toward the consideration of others. I sincerely hope this doesn't reflect poorly on every other member of the community.

I agree. What kind of reputation does that give TASVideos if a more experienced user (who's also a publisher) takes a rookie user's game submission, improves on it, and then submits it exclusively as his own--not even 24 hours after it's been submitted to the Workbench? If that happened to me, not only would I not come back here again, I would make sure that others would know about it, as well.

There's a big difference between obsoleting a 10 year-old published TAS and basically undercutting someone's submission while it's still on the Workbench.

We are re-synched and good to go! The minor readjustment in the teleport room only cost a couple of seconds, as I'm behind by just 212 frames otherwise (including a few improvements made in the process). All that's left is a little money grinding (12 mimics/88 gold a cycle will go by very quickly) to buy the unique items back at Mercator, then it's time to finish the final Palace! My target submission date will be next sat. on the 25th. Thanks everyone for the positive feedback and encouragement, throughout :) This project was quite a ride, and I hope the final product doesn't disappoint!

I'm thinking along the same lines; perhaps a forum thread would be the best place for these. As for the run itself, it looked well done. My only real criticism is the extra long countdowns at the end, which took away from the otherwise speedy pace.

Ouch :( That is sad to hear. Here Ars, you can do it! http://puu.sh/d9Iua/2e4d584ee6.webm
Haha, thanks for that man :) どもありがとう! Now that I've got some rest, I'm only just a tad disappointed that I'll have to cut out the 'hovering Friday' trick (I'm VERY glad, in retrospect, that I forewent buying the Death Statue). The good news is that most of the labyrinth is monster-free, so syncing everything back up shouldn't take no more that a couple of hours. I might have WIP 10 up this evening, after all! edit: There's some good news out of this, after all. After further testing, it looks like the game flags the 'warp to Kazalt/activate Mercator teleporter' event completed about 482 frames after you close the last dialogue box from Moralis (after he invites Nigel to Maple if he ever returns to the main continent). edit 2: More specifically, the event flag is completed once Moralis exits the screen. Furthermore, I can manipulate this to occur much faster since I have control of Nigel; I can block his and the maid's programmed walking paths and cause his "Come to Maple" dialogue box to open early. Big plus: I can keep 'hovering Friday' in after all. Big minus: I have to manipulate a Casino Ticket drop, again (1 in 512 odds). edit 3: Nabbed it again! Time to resync!
