Submission Text Full Submission Page
Since you guys clearly can't get enough of this game I made this. It beats nitrogenesis's submission by 59 frames and Wak017's non-submitted run by 48 frames (I made the whole run after he posted it in the submission thread and compared my progress to it, so it wasn't done in vain), all from better optimized movement.
Thanks goes to Aqfaq, nitrogenesis and Wak017.
Enjoy!

DarkKobold Really Aglar? Really? ....*sigh*.... Judging.
Flygon: It's 2:31AM and I am adding YouTube modules. Aglar is to blame for my sleep deprevation.

DarkKobold: Replacing submission with one 3 frames faster.


Brandon: Claiming instantly for publication.

Encoding!!!
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. If TASing is meta-play, TASVideos Movie Rules are meta-meta-play!

Haha, I've just realized that the main menu selection cursor is a steaming pile of shit, literally! That being said, voting yes if only for the amazing amount of enemies you've run through. — Mommy! Daddy! How does Moses's mom run with him through the river? — It's... uh... it's totally fine, sweetheart! She's holding him above the water surface!

We're well into "no longer funny in any possible sense" territory with this frame war by now. Seeing as that's still effectively the only thing a run of this game has going for it - and even that, strictly speaking, has nothing to do with the run itself - you can guess what my response is going to be.

Voting no again as the run still doesn't feel TASlike at all.
http://www.youtube.com/Noxxa <dwangoAC> This is a TAS (...). Not suitable for all audiences. May cause undesirable side-effects. May contain emulator abuse. Emulator may be abusive. This product contains glitches known to the state of California to cause egg defects. <Masterjun> I'm just a guy arranging bits in a sequence which could potentially amuse other people looking at these bits <adelikat> In Oregon Trail, I sacrificed my own family to save time. In Star trek, I killed helpless comrades in escape pods to save time. Here, I kill my allies to save time. I think I need help.

This is driving me crazy. The workbench does not deserve to be slandered with submissions like this. That means yes.

I might as well wait for an encode before voting No again for bad game choice.

This made my day, again, because I love that this game is getting optimized beyond belief. Come on, you grinches, let's have a little fun for once : )

Looking forward to the encode (I really never expected myself to eventually say this when watching the first TAS). But really, I suspect it would probably need a sub 2-minute run to get sufficient Yes votes to be publish.

Are there 3 glitches in this run? O.o I counted these: - lifting the baby while running; - walking on water; - running through enemies for no damage. Yes vote. This has potential, especially if some more glitches happen =P

I really wish we could somehow publish the experience of a frame war, because that's really what this place is about. Unfortunately publishing the movie alone doesn't come close to capturing the feel of spectating this sort of event.

Hahaha I actually think this is worth publication now, especially since you basically just run through half the enemies in the first couple of levels. It's gone from RRFGJ to entertaining EDIT: Hell, if you add in a couple pipes to go down, it's basically SMB1.

Speak for yourself; I laughed out loud quite a bit when I saw DarkKobold's reaction.

Not as such, I only know that for the spear people, you can only get hit by their spears. As for the other things being gone through, it just seems that you can walk through some and others not. In other words - just as consistent as anything else in this game.

Unlike Battle Chess there's actually some content to this run and the history of this ongoing frame war is incredibly funny to watch. Yes vote and a further vote for detailed submission text that explains the frame war sequence with links to previous submissions. Thanks for keeping me entertained, A.C. ******
TASBot charity event prep is in full swing over on the TASBot Discord server for SGDQ, MCH, ESA, MAGWest and more! I'm posting TAS content on YouTube.com/dwangoAC based on live streams from Twitch.tv/dwangoAC. If you can help defray charity event costs via Patreon.com/dwangoAC my kids and I would be very thankful.
