Submission Text Full Submission Page
Man what am I wasting my life on...
It started as a regular submission that was proven to be not entirely optimal. Several times. And again. And again. And then people took it as a challenge and just crushed this game as a team.
I put the names in the order of latest improvement (or how do I say this in English?) If I missed someone, poke me.
Overall, I think this game is quite impressive in how it replicates a game from a more advanced console, and the variety of gameplay in different levels. It only has 3 of them but come on give the devs a break!
I was personally only interested in the last segment of the movie where you have to wait for a wasp to pass and then you jump on a pirate and then you jump on more wasps. It was the only place I managed to improve (I touched the entire stage 3), and then I just waited for the framewar to end to test that place again, and surprise, my instinct hasn't failed me, lol. It's just 3 frames faster than the fastest WIP by Memory but otherwise the framewar indeed looks done.
If anyone still feels like beating this time, by all means go to helll join the party! Or not.

ThunderAxe31: Claiming for judgment, in hope I don't get dragged myself in the party as well.
ThunderAxe31: It seems to me that it's going to be enough hard to improve it from this point.
While the title is quite known is some areas of the world, the game itself is not that good, so I can relate with the overall reaction towards this movie. Accepting for the Vault.
feos: Pub.
feos: Reordered the authors to reflect the overall improvement found by them.

Great frame war, unfortunately doesn’t change how boring the game is. Voting no on entertainment.

Indeed. Voted No.
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!

Well were there any glitches or tricks used? Also this is really not much of a game tbh. Amusing to see this incomplete port though. Meh.

I kinda liked it even outside the framewar :< voted yes EDIT: In response to Mike above: kinda? If you press A right before you land on an enemy on the last stage, you bounce higher. Routing out the jumps in that level was tricky.

We worked so hard to reach 2:11.63 in record time and it's clearly entertainable.
Cuphead TASes desyncs unfortunately.

Imagine not watching Toy Story or not remembering Woody's name. Entertainment is subjective. On the topic of subjectiveness. Voting No on Entertainment as well. Congrats on the people who worked on the collaborative effort of the actual movie.

7 No votes, 7 Meh votes and 7 Yes votes. Perfectly balanced as all things should be. Hey, 7/7/7. 777. Maybe this TAS will be lucky enough to be published after all. :) Seriously though, I almost joined the frame war at some point but good God I hated TASing the game and didn't make it past the first ledge. Run here seems optimized, but entertainment wise it is too short and slow to really make it all too fun, if that makes any sense. No vote.

Are you serious? Voting no based on entertainment on a 2 minute video with fascinating glitches? Talk about low attention spans. Resounding yes from me.

It’s always fascinating to me how people get offended by other’s opinions

Who exactly got offended? Subjective responses outlined below: - unfortunately doesn’t change how boring the game is (no) - entertainment wise it is too short and slow to really make it all too fun (no) - game wasn't fun to be honest (meh) And so on. Don't see emotions engaged beyond that.

Yes, that links to my post. "Are you serious? Voting no based on entertainment on a 2 minute video with fascinating glitches? Talk about low attention spans." Let's deconstruct this: - "Are you serious?" Displays surprise, a bit of a knee jerk reaction admittedly - "Voting no based on entertainment on a 2 minute video with fascinating glitches?" Statement of fact. See all prior posts in the topic. - "Talk about low attention spans" Seems judgmental at first, but also fairly objective. Why else would so many people be voting no/meh to a video that's less than 180 seconds long?

Because people didn’t find it entertaining?

I think the real reason is how gameplay of this game compares to what a given person uses to enjoy.

I like this movie but the game is glitchless. There are absolutely 0 glitches that I recall being used.

It's not used in the TAS for obvious reasons.

Did you watch the run, and see the part where he skips from world 3 to the credits with some kind of glitch? Despite witnessing that, still voted no/meh based on entertainment?

........... That’s not a glitch. That’s the amount of the levels this game actually has. Also you are asking an author of the movie “did you even watch the movie?”.
