Goal

  • Breaking the game. Not beating it, just breaking it. As fast as possible.

Samsara: THIS GAME'S TITLE IS LITERALLY HALF KACHI. THAT'S FUNNIER THAN ANYTHING I COULD COME UP WITH
Samsara: The softlock discourse is going to intensify heavily by me making this decision, but I'm changing the branch to "fastest crash".
My take on these kinds of runs, whether they're softlocks or crashes, is that they're just fun demonstrations of things that would never be seen or shown otherwise. If only we had some sort of class for demonstrations... Some sort of area for creativity... Like, a ground where people can play...

Looking at tracelogger it seems more to be just a crash (also ACE to boot, lol)

Welp, every 'fastest crash' is just an 'arbitrary code execution' waiting to happen!

I have an improvement movie for this submission: User movie #637874423713011500 Of which 6 frames where saved due to better "optimization", and 14 were lost due to setting GBA mode for console verification.
my personal page - my YouTube channel - my GitHub - my Discord: ThunderAxe31#1512 <Masterjun> if you look at the "NES" in a weird angle, it actually clearly says "GBA"
