Finishes Chapter 3, 2475 frames ahead of the currently published movie
Some incredible luck manip in chapter 3. Got the 3 armor offers without declining one, and some really tight encounters during the 7 broad sword/7 half plate fights
Also this new strat gets an extra level, but will not increase the final level at the end of the game, so there is about 600 frames more that will be realized by the end of the TAS
Extra HP is manipulated which will reduce 1, maybe even 2, medical herbs used before the final fight

227 frames improved over version 5 (774 frames total improved from the published movie). About 180 of these are from staying at the inn at the beginning to get a better day/night cycle, most of the rest is from an even more absurdly unlikely set of level ups. Also a few frames were scraped from screen transitions.

See for details. This is an improvement to the published movie. Gets up to the Chapter 3 armor selling. But there is a routing improvement in Chapter 1.
I don't know when this will ever be finished, uploading it here so there's record of this work

#32172505606083811 - DW4-SingleActionManipulation

Uploaded 7/10/2016 9:07 PM by adelikat (see all 20)
sometimes you don't have the luxury of having previous actions to start a manipulation from. This script is the last resort technique. You start it on the lag frame before the action. The logic is that it will mash random buttons such that it will delay the ability to press a button to scroll to the next action. Then it delays a frame and presses a random button. There's a max of about 30 frames that you can delay this way. There's not a lot of RNG variance either. But this script can get decent results when there are no other options.

Similar to the ManipCritical file except it is used to manipulate the enemy to miss

#32172349239565591 - DW4-ManipCritical

Uploaded 7/10/2016 8:57 PM by adelikat (see all 20)
This file was used to manipulate critical hits in typical situations, where they were not the first action in a round. The wait options at the top were based on how many previous (non-luck manipulated) scroll moments there were. The further back you could start the bot, the better the results. This file uses the DW-4ManipCore file
