some real nifty shortcuts and glitches he exploits to achieve the end. Ultimately I think this fellow has played this game a few hundred times too many.

And I thought I was good at that game, cashing in at just more than 4.5 hours.

Spiral out, my friend. You will find your way back to yourself, we all will.
I'll be waiting, and shall see you on the other side...

Regarding the Mario 3 movie earlier, the term is "Tool Assisted Speedrun". The guys use emulator as tools to record the "perfect" videos of games being played through as fast as possible. The two most important techniques on these videos are slowing down the game (you can even play it frame by frame with new emulators) and re-recording (saving and loading it up to do a difficult spot the fastest way possible).

Read more about tool assisted runs at: http://bisqwit.iki.fi/nesvideos/WhyAndHow.html



Also since the recent release of a N64 emulator with these powerful recording tools, there already is a Mario 64 Tool Assisted Speedrun that clocks the game at 16:27.

Noting that there is a lack of any recording aberrations ie: flickering due to interlacing on tv's, or tracking and audio inconsistencies due to vcr recording, I am often hesitant to give much credence to these miraculous feats of game play. Though I did enjoy the Mario64 video for it revealed a number of shortcuts and glitches I was previously unaware of.

example of a ligit gaming feat (see its interlaced)

Actually, I say its completely real, but was recorded on an EMULATOR!!! That's right! an EMULATOR!!! The guy probably used save state and restore state buttons at least a billion times. Some emulators can record what you're doing, and if you restore a save point, then it looks completely natural.

JFASI, that mario64 run Omit posted is legit, it's the same run that was presented at Speed Demos Archive, but which has already been replaced by a faster version also legit.

The Tool Assisted Speedrun of Mario 64 is by far much more insane, but it is as the name says, recorded on a emulator and by using save-states and slow-down.

The fastest I ever saw someone beat Super Mario 3 in person was 12 minutes at a friend's party, and it was on a real NES.

JFASI, go to Speed Demos Archive, you can trust those recordings to be 100% legimate and done on real consoles.

SM3 in 11 minutes... hacks and lies all around.

At the end of the video there is a website - someone has already gone to the website and translated... the game was beat using an emulator and saving every second - literally. Everytime he died, got caught by a hand, messed up, fell, etc he restarted a second or two back. It looks good and got people thinking... but it wasn't actually done. If you have / had the skills at the Jap to Eng translation when the website did talk about it he straight up admitted to using an emulator, no intention to get as big as it did Im sure - but something with that much skill gets around quickly.

End.

I would apply to the "Some people read the entire thread and post" - because after reading I am under the impression most people think the guy used an emulator... I am simply saying - he did use an emulator. My post also was for the Super Mario 3 - not the N64 that the above posts would be about... owned.

And im simply saying, or trying to say for my last 3 posts or so, that there is a whole site dedicated to emulator runs. Each one of the emulator videos have labels and "warnings" that they are made with a emulator and a link to the site that explains how they are made and why they are made. There's nothing wrong with emulator runs, they are quite enjoyable in a fact, but it's the stupid ass people who make assumptions and then get dissapointed when they hear the "truth". Also some idiots steal the videos from the site, remove all the labels and warnings, then post it and go yell out at some forum: "zomg! OMGZ! r0X0rZ! THIS GUY BEAT X GAME IN Z-minutes! IT'S THE COOLARAST THING EVAH!!!! CHEKC IT OUT ZOMG! OMG! FAGH!" This makes me very sad

I highly recommend you go and educate yourself with the concept of emulator runs if you're going to watch any gameplay videos in the future.

Then you can choose from either the Emulator Assisted Speed Runs or the Console Speed Runs
Personally i enjoy both of them a great deal and can appreciate both of them for what they are.

You can always get the normal or low quality versions. Besides most of them come in segments so you don't have to download the whole XXXXMB ammount at once.

If you don't like downloading huge files, download the emulator movies, they are about 10-100kb in size, but of course you need the right emulator and the right rom to run them correctly...

My favourite speed runs are the Metroid Prime runs. How they figured out how to beat that game in 1:04 I don't think I'll ever know but it's pretty cool. I can't get under 3 hours
