NES TAS of 2011
Here the ending starts at frame 4948. In the previous movie it starts at 6980. 00:33.87 seconds faster guys!!! PS: encoding... EDIT: the input of the previous movie was totally copied until the jet glitch restart.
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!

Even more broken than the last time! Easy yes vote.

If half the starting input is copied from the previous movie, should the old authors be added as coauthors? Regardless, congratulations on improving the glitch!
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.

That's interesting, let's hope the record time soon crosses the 1 minute line, so it becomes especially obvious this run needs its own category. Yes vote.

This Input was copied from 1920M anyway. Edit: ok, checked the diff in Taseditor and it appears to be different, although you can't tell it by the game Output.

How does that work? Faster run = new category? What?

Wow, this is great! The part after input ends is a lot funnier because of the random sprites falling down the screen before Rash appears and then disappears, turning all of the colors negative, and the faster game over. Great improvement, Marx. Yes vote!

What's going on, from a technical standpoint? Was one of the objects loaded a checkpoint from Rat Race or something, which would explain the weird pallete?

The point is not that it's just faster, but that it skips entire game.

More speed + more entertainment = yes vote. Definitely a trip once the glitch is applied!

Sorry, I guess I meant, what specifically was going on. What was it loading instead of what it should have been.

Note: I'm not going to accept any movie which requires extra input at the end to complete. Ensure that your movie completes the game. When you're done improving, give me a link to your new file, and I will replace it.

Right now two battletoad submission is being compete. I really can't improve beyond 58 seconds so I'm about to cancel it but what do you guys think, should I wait or cancel it?

Marx, can you describe the process how you TASed this game? How you managed to beat previous run without learning the deep stuff on the game engine?
