<The date is Tuesday, September 13th, 1921. It's a stormy night, and the luxury ocean liner "Lady Crithania" is about to be capsized by an enormous wave. Many of its crew and its 2300 passengers will be killed outright in the initial overturning; in the transfigured catastrophic ship environment, most of the remainder will be unable to locate, reach and secure a safe exit from the sinking ship before it floods entirely.>

feos: I checked and confirmed that this submission, while beating an existing record, is still quite sloppily executed. Actions aren't done on the first possible frame, even where precision is not hard to figure out and where nothing complicated happens. But I was unable to get the first ship rotation sooner than in this movie, so it virtually remained unbeaten for a little bit.
Then Spikestuff implemented the route from the RTA world record and combined it with the res of the current publication. That ended up being about 170 frames faster than this movie (which actually ends a few frames after the last necessary input).
In Vault we only care about completed records. And even though this movie is shorter than the published run, it's still rather sub-optimal, as shown by another completed record, than now belongs to Spikestuff, ruadath & DwainiumB. That record is still sub-optimal as noted by Spikestuff. So we'd expect any new submission of this game to beat this movie.
Rejecting.

Why did you use snes9x as opposed to Bizhawk?

For the need to be informed. The improvement in the death abuse to make the ship turn over faster. However, what stands out to me in the input... besides the fact that it's snes9x (which is allowed) is the fact that the input itself contains RTA input in it. Link to video I did attempt at making it to BizHawk but gave up and truncated input back to where I think it's best for whoever to pick up from. That usefile can be found here: 59899626961255060

I personally didn't find the TAS entertaining, but I can see it being added to vault if the TAS description gets updated. I'd love to read on what makes this TAS optimised, if it is.

And this is the part where I call it out. Now excuse the numbers for not being accurate cause this is snes9x vs BizHawk. The very first input after regaining control after the ship up and Poseidon's itself is 2/3 frames slower than it should be. Using the classic TAS Movie Editor at 6109 onwards for that little segment of mashing B and removing 2 frames I was able to get in the door obviously 2 frames earlier with your input. This leads to everything can be adjusted in TAS Movie Editor. But here's the thing, time is valuable so we're just going to compare to the BizHawk movie I provided even though there isn't any major differences that'll be in play besides probably a frame that separates the two. The next sequence after getting out of that room is another 2 jumps, your timing of the jumps leaves you about 15 frames behind that userfile, is this because of your mashing you left behind again? I don't have any comments on the death abuse, cause I did it slower so eh on that one. (take notes whoever is actually using my file to fix that) You can skip the "Lose 5 Minutes" screen. You fail to do this. You have me beat on the respawn and climb there (again notes), however you lose to my input in the second half of that climb. That's where my input ends, so after that it's up in the air. However, for a relatively short movie this does leave behind quite a few mistakes especially against my now joke of a userfile after comparing to your input. The biggest stand out is you not skipping the "Lose 5 Minutes" screen and instead letting it go through.

Ship damage is random. I'm reaching this place on frame 8558. The ship starts rotating at frame 9700. And in this submission it's 8990. And it's random which direction it will rotate. http://tasvideos.org/userfiles/info/60431167774439216
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.
