Hello. I noticed that the TAS was getting some progress so decided to check it out and these test runs are looking really good. Like I said before, I'm the main RTA runner for this game and would like to help with anything I can on this project. I don't really have much experience with TASing sadly but this could be a nice opportunity to start out.
Okay, now with that out of the way, how about some strats and whatnot? First, here's the current Any% WR in case you haven't seen it yet: http://www.twitch.tv/yuuki_s/c/6547351
While I do plan on running 100% at some point soon, most of what you do in Any% you also do in 100% plus the Golden and regular Carrots of course.
Other than what's on the WR, there's some little things more.
For example, the second electric fence skip at Carrot Factory (which I failed miserably on the run but it's possible). Alternatively to that, if you stand in at certain pixel on the right of any conveyor belt, you get teleported to the other far side of it. It should be able to abuse it to crazy levels on a TAS since it's really precise as to do it on RTA.
Also, Theoretically you could maybe skip the first electric fence by going around it with TAS execution. I never been able to do it tho so I can't be so sure. Combine that with the fact that you can stand on one of the pipes for a shortcut to skip the switch for the fence and you'll save a bunch of time.
Lastly, First person view cancelled jumps. If you jump and then hold the first person view on the frames where Bugs is about to jump, you prevent him from moving so he immediately lands again. How can this be useful? Well, the only way to actually cancel rolls is to jump. You roll, you jump, you first person to cancel the jump and all this puts you back into standing. From here we can easily do a kick hop. So all this would save some small frames here and there we'll optimize the run bit by bits. Might be pretty situational actually but might as well use it.
Oh, and if you wonder about why the run skip most of the dialogues between characters, that's a PC exclusive glitch, Music storage, so don't worry much about that.
But, yeah I should be getting more stuff as I go so if anything I'll share it here :)
