Performed in a talent show for the 2-days-after-the-real-Independence-Day Independence Day we call July 4th. I got 4th place out of 4 people in my age group. Disappointing, but I really had fun out there.



Reminds me of when Michael Jackson lost all the Grammies he was nominated for in 1988, and then proceeded to give the most energetic and moving performance of The Way You Make Me Feel and Man In The Mirror he ever had or ever would perform.

I like what I saw, although one of the camera looks like the video was ripped from an old VHS tape set in EP mode (longer lenght but lower quality) :P. Not sure why you got last place but it probably depends of some factors. If, for example, everyone else hated Michael Jackson then maybe they voted solely based on musical tastes, which is ridiculous when it happens. I remember once my song got rejected from a contest because it was not mainstream pop enough.

EDIT: This is what happens when you copy a VHS tape over and over many times:

I shot that view in 720p HD, but the thing is, it's so far away from me you can see the entire audience (out of necessity, I had a 10-inch tripod :P ). Zooming in was necessary, and I have no idea how to upscale.

Oh i see. Yeah cams often use artificial zooming past a certain point, so that explains the video quality then.

This, guys, is a tool-assisted speedrun of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Watch carefully:

Thanks Streetwalrus for sharing the link.

Haha, nice one.

Reminds me of this one they pulled off this week at the SGDQ...

As they explained, they spam the buttons so much the NES can't take it and pretty much starts the game straight to the ending. I wonder if it works on an emulator...

They also did a TAS of SMB 1, 2, 3 and Lost Levels all at the same time with the same inputs. Pretty incredible.

Kinda. The problem is that no emulators support recording this many inputs per frame, but someone managed to get around that by using Lua scripting for button inputs instead.

Yeah, apparently they just discovered this perk of the hardware side and why it happens is probably unknown, no wonder why emulators aren't supporting it. So the best TAS for SMB 3 can only be replayed on the real hardware with a TASBot, gg guys, I wonder if the guys at TASVideos are going to accept this :P

They know why it happens. The game will read the controller input over and over until it gets the same input more than once, to avoid interference that can happen with DPCM. That's not a newly discovered phenomenon, but the way they exploit it is new. Normally the input will only be read a few times since there isn't interference all the time and the player can't press buttons as fast as the game can read the controller input. But when TASBot presses buttons quickly enough, the game will think it needs to wait more to avoid DPCM interference, and the controller input code will execute continually. Eventually, an interrupt fires and something goes wrong because the bank that's switched in when reading the input isn't the one that is expected to be switched in when that interrupt fires. I'm not really sure what happens after that, but I'm pretty sure they do, because without the correct manipulation they would be getting something like a crash rather than the game ending.

This won't be accepted on TASVideos for now. That's because there's no emulator with an input file format that supports this, meaning sending in a proper submission is impossible. It does however work in emulators, but like I said in my previous post, they had to use a custom Lua script for sending inputs to the game.
