I personally prefer auto-pilot mode. I like the idea of ending input as soon as possible and letting the game finish itself even if getting to the credits takes longer. I'd argue that the majority of what we publish here is based on this method (i.e. jumping into an end trigger to allow momentum to carry the character to the end trigger instead of having to have directional input all the way to the end-point). It's not universal on the site; but we're typically focused on shortest input, not shortest time to the credits screen itself.

My own personal preference is time to reach ending -- After all, null input is still input. But that's my philosophy. It's generally easier to measure "end of input" than it is to measure "time to credits", simply because we can very quickly identify the length of the movie file, but not when that movie file hits the ending. For logistical reasons, "end of input" is probably better for contest conditions.

Can I get official confirmation from FilipeTales that he is in team 4? Edit: I’m just going to assume it’s confirmed and add him to team 4.

I always want to participate but always end up with no free time to really work on inputs. So, as in the last 3 editions, i'll just do my research if the game is interesting, this time not joining a team. This said, is it ok to post here my findings so everyone can (if is the case) benefit from it?

Im going to say no you shouldn’t post any findings until after the contest, as some teams might want to take advantage of something they find that other teams haven’t found. Definitely feel free to post information afterwards though when we work on a submission.

Sharing game resources for DTC games in contest is an ancient time-honored tradition. On a serious note though, don't do it. Information finding is an integral part of TASing, and you should not take it away from the competitors.

That would be like having a spelling contest and there is someone revealing half of the correct letters of each word. This is a contest about TASing an unknown game, so researching it is a major part of the contest. Helping with that to "benefit everyone" ruins the point of the contest.
Warning: Might glitch to credits I will finish this ACE soon as possible (or will I?)

If yall pull together a team last minute that would be hilarious.

Sure, let's have second thoughts together. If MUGG and WarHippy say yes then yes team.

So since a team 5 is confirmed I’ll add everyone who has confirmed so far, and if MUGG confirms later i’ll add him too

Since MUGG expressed interest in joining but there was no teams available at the time, I’m giving him permission to join team 5 after the contest starts if he does not confirm participation before the contest starts. This doesn’t mean anyone can join team 5 after the contest starts, only MUGG. I realized I was being too strict with the signups and I apologize for that.
