Captain America and The Avengers is a story about American heroes,"Captain America" "Hawkeye" "Iron Man" and "Vision"(The Avengers???).But Iron Man and Vision are beaten by Boss Mandarin,so we can only use Captain and Hawkeye.Unfortunately,Hawkeye looks so weak,then,I am sorry he will not appear in this tas.This run is 628 frames(about 6.46 seconds) faster than my previous published #3743: Xipo's NES Captain America and the Avengers in 14:27.72.There is no secret in the improvement.I ascape twice "Red Alert" in Pittsburgh and LasVegas with lower Screen Y-pos.In fact,we can escape most of the "Red Alert" if we don't mind losting more time.

feos: Encode, system fix.

Nach: Nice improvement, accepting.
feos: Pub.

So long discription! My tablet is ready to collapse :-) Encode please!
TASing is like making a film: only best takes are shown in the final movie.

NES TAS of 2011
Hey, great! I will encode it. I only suspect FDS is there by mistake. http://tasvideos.org/userfiles/info/22813775500842679
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!

Things I like:
  • The map of the USA that is called a "map of America"
  • The "exits" that are clearly and obviously dead-ends
Things I dislike:
  • The "red alert" zones with a background so appalling they made my eyes hurt, head spin, and me stop watching the TAS
Since I didn't finish watching, I can't vote... those red alert zones though... ow.

Dimon: What are you talking about? For me, the description is only one or two paragraphs, and it loads fine on my mobile device. (Also, an encode has recently been added.) xipo: Good job improving the run. I admit, though, that I don't know the game well enough to notice the improvements. I think I may be misunderstanding your description. * When you say "there is no secret in the improvement", do you instead want to say "there are no new tricks in this improvement" or something like that? * Do the "Red Alert" zones work like the enemy planes in Bionic Commando? It sounds like you're saying one of the main improvements was to avoid more of those zones.
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:

The first revision of the submission text had a formatting error that stretched the entire text onto one line, therefore making the page super wide.

I saw the name and cringed, thinking it was the awful SNES port. Then I realized it was an NES title and felt a little better. A pity this game still doesn't look very good. Meh for entertainment. You did what you could!

I don't argue, it's fine now! When xipo submitted the movie, his description was a very long line and I needed to increase the page scale every time (I hope you don't need the details). Description and encode providing was done by feos.

Dimon and Nitrogenesis: I understand. Thanks! I'm sorry if my tone was wrong. Anyone: any thoughts about the questions I had before? Thanks!
