This game sucks. Therefore I present to you a movie that punishes the audience 50 less seconds than the published movie
This movie was made using FCEUX2.1.1 and I highly recommend watching it with the emulator, as we have included some nice subtitle entertainment.
It includes many accessories for your viewing pleasure.
- A lua script for viewing various game data
- Savestates for each level. FCEUX2.1.1 supports drag & drop for savestates, so it is easy to watch any level you wish by simply dragging the provided savestates onto the emulator.
- A memory watch file we used in the making of this TAS
This run was inspired by my famtasia challenge
. This is one of the few remaining survivors from the dark ages of famtasia. This isn't from a lack of trying though. Many a great TASer has attempted to optimize only to be slain by this evil creature.
And why did they fail? The nasty RNG for the mini-game map screens at the end of each level. But one lone TASer prevailed where many great TASer before him failed: Using the mystical powers of Lua, he managed to conquer this evil beast once and for all. Ok, why am I talking this way?
DarkKobold was able to disect the RNG (well, as it turns out there are 2 RNG's which was the source of all the pain) and find the optimal solution for each map. With this hurdle conquered our team quickly ravaged through this game.
There is a big glitch shortcut taken in level 8. Using the bat + taking damage it is possible to get inside the wall thus passing a good portion of the level. Thanks to yunshui for this discovery!
There is a weapon glitch too. You can fire rapidly by pressing the opposite direction you are facing the frame after firing.
The auto-scrollers are done from inside walls due to a glitch with the bat
Lag is a real pain in this game. Did anyone even test this game before they released it? A lot of TAS strategy in levels was built around finding a way to reduce lag. In particular, Level 8 where you could easily rack up thousands of lag frames with a bad strategy.
- Aims for fastest time
- Takes damage to save time
- Manipulates Luck
- Abuses programming errors in the game
: Replacing submission file with one that has fixed subtitles. The movie content was not changed.
: Accepting submission! Nice to see another Famtasia run bite the dust.
