NES TAS of 2011
We allow libTAS to run PCem as a DOS machine emulator. Only TASVideos releases of PCem are allowed. Such releases are marked st to indicate single-threading - modification required for determinism, not available in the original PCem. libTAS is needed because PCem doesn't have any TAS tools. The setup required may be non-trivial, but game support is overwhelming, because PCem emulates much more hardware than JPC-RR does. See the relevant section of the Movie Rules: http://tasvideos.org/MovieRules.html#Dos libTAS specific rules also fully apply: http://tasvideos.org/MovieRules.html#LibtasMovies Guide on TASing DOS games in PCem+libTAS: http://tasvideos.org/EmulatorResources/PCem/DOS.html Huge thanks to people who helped making this possible: keylie, slamo, Dacicus, Nach, and fsvgm777!
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!

We have been working on a complete rewrite/redesign of TASVideos and are now ready to open it to public feedback/testing. A demo of the site can be found at https://tasvideos.mistflux.net/. Details can be found in the thread.

A fair amount of publications, both current and obsolete, are lacking a YouTube encode. In order to preserve our history on YouTube, I am calling for new encoders! If you have some CPU power to spare (and you're going to need it), feel free to choose any publication from the above list, upload your YouTube encode to your own YouTube channel as well as to a file sharing service (e.g. MEGA). Should you require any assistance, you can ask me (either via forum PM or Discord DM). For starters, here are the encoder guidelines. And here's a comprehensive publication manual. It also contains links to the current encoding package as well as the required stuff. Don't forget to make your own encoder logo. Note: If you wish to do downloadable encodes as well, there are published movies that can be re-encoded so that they meet our current standards. If your contributions prove to be valuable for the site, you may be promoted to the Encoder rank.

We now accept a new goal to Standard: Forgoes Major Skip Glitch. Runs that avoid large skips can be considered for publication to Standard assuming they are otherwise fastest completion. Details can be found in the movie rules. Suggestions for revisiting rejected runs can be done in this thread.

After years of work and months of public testing, we are finally ready to go live with the TASvideos rewrite! The new site will be launching on January 1st, at 4:00 PM (16:00) UTC. Transition time should take around 2-3 hours, during which the site will be down. The site can be previewed and tested at https://staging.tasvideos.org, though it may be down frequently as we get closer to the go-live date. Please continue to test it as much as you can while it's up, though! Keep in mind that this staging site is strictly for testing, and is not meant to serve as an active replacement yet. Data can and will be overwritten while we test things, so don't put anything meant to be persistent on there. Post your feedback and bug reports in the rewrite discussion thread and the Github repository.

TASVideos has just undergone a major overhaul. It now has new features such as https, dark mode, mobile friendly design and others. Expect some bugs for the near future and report them to https://github.com/TASVideos/tasvideos. Additional topics will probably be made in the near future for discussion of features and other things.

When moving to the new code base, we were able to copy over user passwords. However, the old password storage was not secure. If you log in to the new system, it will upgrade that storage to something safer. The idea was to allow a seamless upgrade as users could log in right away. However, I do not want to keep insecurely stored password for any longer than necessary. On January 23rd, I will remove old style passwords. - If you log in before this date, your password will automatically "upgrade" (It is still recommended you also update your password) - If you fail to log in before this date, you will need to use the forgot password workflow in order to be able to log in again (which will include setting your password)
