HappyLee: Happy New Year, everyone! I'm more than glad to submit the first movie on TASVideos in 2011, which is also the first surprise of me to all of you. The surprises will keep on coming!
: And Happy New Year to you, coach HappyLee! Mamma Mia, what a world you're living in!
HappyLee: Mario! What brings you here!
: Oh, I've been looking for you for a long time, I tried so hard just to escape from the world of video games for a while, and now I see you, so it was worth it.
HappyLee: Why me?
: Because people know that you are keen on playing Super Mario Bros. And you have taught me lots of skills, such as moonwalking and the shell glitch, haven't you, coach HappyLee?
HappyLee: I'm much flattered! But I'm just your friend, so call me HL.
: Okey Dokey. Surely you are nicer to me than my last coach klmz. But he is such a nice coach, who taught me how to grab the flagpole without the flag falling down, and that was amazing.
HappyLee: Yeah, but I do miss Mana and pom, have you seen them recently?
: Sorry, I can't remember. Oh, my memory is failing, I almost forget the most important thing. I have also come here to congratulate you on your latest success. You beat the SMB warped run of klmz by 1 frame, which I think is the one of the most unbeatable movies on our site. Nice work, HL!
HappyLee: Well, you know, this is the perfect movie I've been always talking about, both in entertainment and speed. How did you feel when I was playing?
: Oh, I just couldn't believe I could complete the whold game that fast. Look, I have even taken a photo of my trip as a souvenir! Well how about that?
HappyLee: It looks cool.
: Running makes me so exhausted, you know I really appreciate your walkathon idea. So anyway, how did you find the 1-frame improvement?

1 frame? 1 frame!

HappyLee: Well, numerous ideas have come to me recently. I thought there might be a better way to slow down the speed in the fish scene in SMB 8-4, so I tested it on 2010-12-18, and it worked. I tried other ideas, too, some of them were extremely close. However, but none of them works.
: Pardon me for my great curiosity, but I'd really to know some of your ideas.
HappyLee: OKay. I'll start with the level 4-2 for an example. The fastest way to move yourself to the right place is to enter the top floor of the bricks, but it is still 2 frames to the next 21 frame boundary. To increase the entertainment, I chose to go through the bottom of the floor.
: Time is up, I guess I have to leave. See you next time if you need me!

Nach: Judging.

feos: Added YouTube module & link to streamed comparison video.

mmarks: Replace Youtube module

Nach: Most entertaining version of this route to date. Nice job on going for highest score too. On top of all that, you found a frame to save as well, amazing! I have no choice but to accept.
Darkpsy: Published!

[Chugs half a bottle of Vodka] Voted no due to it being only a single frame improvement. ENTIRELY UNACCEPTABLE! I mean seriously, if this was a 22 frame improvement, then it'd be without doubt an instant Yes. [Chugs back more Vodka] Now where's that damn no key.. ah shiet.. i hti yes.. ahn wel.. [No seriously, this was an easy Yes.. just wish that another 21 will byte the dust. :)] Mr. Kelly R. Flewin

NES TAS of 2011
Spoiler. World 8-4, frame ~16170.
Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting.

Why can't people submit perfect movies? It would save the site so much time having to improve on them.

YES VOTE! I never thought the old one could be improved. I'm sure a lot of hard work went into making this TAS. I really enjoyed the slightly different routes through all of the levels (1-1 over the first ? block, 4-2 through the bottom row of bricks).

Hahaha, this is awesome. Lee, you're one unstoppable dude! Also, your English is pretty much impeccable by this point. You really try hard at things, don't you?

Yes for the movie, of course. I'm curious about something, Happy Lee. Why do you don't wanna TAS any other game? Your SMB movies are, for lack of better word, perfect, and would be great seeing this "perfection" in other movies. Why don't you give it a try?
My first language is not English, so please excuse myself if I write something wrong. I'll do my best do write as cleary as I can, so cope with me here =) (ノಥ益ಥ)ノ

Super Mario Bros 2J? I'd love to see that. Anyway, good job on improving this TAS. :)

There's 3 No votes at the moment.. and not a single word in here of WHY they were voted No... I think the entire system needs to be retweaked where if you vote No, you MUST put a response in the thread indicating why or you will be banned from voting for the rest of the year. I feel this would stop vengeful NO postings [How dare the person obsolete my TAS I spent months on and then say he did it in a week! I'm voting NO and hope everyone else does too!] and actuallly bring forth honest C&C. [And a temp ban if you just make some lame reason "Voting NO because I was bored" isn't good enough... although "Voting NO due to bad game choice" is borderline good enough." I dunno.. I mean I try to state why I vote No when I do and I don't think it's too much to ask.. but then that's just me... Mr. Kelly R. Flewin

Voting No to this suggestion. It assumes that the default is accepting the movie. (Because Yes votes won't have to be justified,) and it leaves users in an uncomfortable spot when the must come out against majority opinion, and it's (in my opinion) not a big problem, because the judges already are responsible for determining a movie by it's merits and just a simple unsupported No vote is vanishingly unlikely to affect the judge in one way or another. So voting No as this is a radical and potentially drama and damage causing solution to a non-problem. Much <3 though!
