Dude, I thought about making a thread like this earlier this week.
These videos were so fucking dumb and yet I still liked them regardless at the time. I miss being 10-11 sometimes. "Sometimes" being the key word.
>mfw I remember the drama around Fleskhjerta getting banned in ROBLOX
Can someone post the actual video because I'm trying to remember what exactly happened in it. I don't understand why the fuck I would remember this if it was just Mario running around with that song in the background.
>RancherTwiz made the first video in this style that I saw, with the only difference being that he used Super Mario Advance 4 instead of SM64
>he took down all of his videos that were in that fashion and abandoned his account
I mean I understand that he wanted to move on but I wish I could've at least watched them again at least once.
>Old as fuck Project 64
>bad audio quality
>all within in the first 30 seconds
Jesus you weren't kidding
He has a ROM, so IMPLYING you could do it reasonably.
He likely wasn't that sperg and sped up time in-game to get close to his equally-autistic calculations.
And APPARENTLY these challenge runs are a small cult community.
He has a whole equally-long video about the coin limit and the binary limits in Mario 64.
>people who where in fifth grade in 2007 now can post here
*raises dinosaur claw
If you have the A-button held down, does that not still count as pressing it?
As most mainstream RnB is designed to appeal to youths who want to appear "gangsta" and have that rebel without a cause image.
Just without the leather jackets and motorcycles of course.
IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME
> videos of countless games being made like a small community. Halo, gta 4, sm64, gears, so on. No shitty videos
> most videos today are just plain ol shit, going as far as minecraft videos. Anyone who worked for machinima are now gone thanks to their shitty contracts
Oh how times have changed
I bet this guy writes the best lab reports on earth. I love watching videos like this, so much technical knowledge and methodology. It may be extremely autistic, but man is it informative and entertaining.
Dude what the fuck? I watched all of this. What the literal fuck? It's like this dude was doing a Yale leveled lecture on quantum physics with this shit. I'm scared.
>Thinking anyone will read a page before watching your video
>Using terminology that makes no sense
>Oh, if I just press the button before I start recording it doesn't count!
>People will defend this
why do people care about anything
it's just a challenge, requiring way more creativity than most any%
I decided to do some math to see how fast one needs to be moving to do this, the speed he needs to jump all those PUs is 1,478,593 units/sec, which, equals to in real life about 313 538 m/s
It's still hard to believe that Pokemon Hacks started as stupid shit like this.
Of course, they're still made by 12-14 year olds with teen angst and edge, but the tools, tutorials and ROM Bases that exist now are insane.
>Knowledge and effort are autism
I'll never get this meme. Just admit someone's good at something instead of trying to insult them.
>beating stages in the smallest number of presses of one button in particular as possible
That is the most arbitrarily banal category of running a game I have ever seen, it's like an incredibly boring version of speedrunning
That said I can't stop watching, it's absolutely fascinating to me
It's was somewhat cringeworthy, but hot damn I love music hacks.
It's the whole reason why I bought Undertale day one.
>like his location data just becomes too large for the n64 to process
That's not how that works and it's even explained in the video
Mario's location data is stored as 3 shorts (which are 16 bit ints). His location data never increases or decreases in size, it just loops back around. So if his x position is 32767 (0111111111111111 in binary) and he moves right one unit, it becomes (1111111111111111) which is -32768. Then if he moves right again it becomes (1111111111111110) which is -32767. And if he keeps moving right eventually he'll reach 32767 again.
Way to shift the goalposts. The post in question mentioned being a kid specifically. This is right on the border of what is acceptable, and I would argue a bit across the line.
Everytime I see halo vids i'm reminded of a horribly obscure machinima (or some shit) called burger khicken or something. It is a vid of a halo character running a gauntlet of sorts just to buy fried chicken and the cashier complaining sales are low as its hard to find.
I saw the vid once but have never sauced it since. Then again pre-2012 internet is a mythical beast.
>pre-2012 internet is a mythical beast
That's exactly what parallel universes are. Places outside the map that have the same collision detection as the map.
Also I just remembered I was wrong in >>324176212
His position is stored in floats then converted to those shorts, which is why his collision detection loops around. But the point stays the same, the amount of data that represents mario's position stays constant.
Yes, pre 2012. 2012 was roughly when the influx of normies exploded and ruined everything.
Social media is to blame.
The reason why MySpace never caught on with normies is because of all the constant drama that revolved around it, be it bullies, stalkers, emos, pedophiles, you name it.
What is Mario best known for? Now, which button does do that?
So, when normal running of SM64 was pretty much explored to the fullest as a new challengee the question came in "how about in which Mario uses his most known ability as little as possible? I winder how few of them he will need for all 120 stars"
And so it was done.
I saw his Super Scatman 64 like in 2007, I'm still subscribed to him ever since but he lately put only some smash bros replays so he's not really uploading content anymore sadly.
>I will explain why I am building speed up for 12 hours but first I'll have to talk about parallel universes
I liked the information about how they control Mario's movement and some of the interactions, but holy shit .
I can't tell if this guy is autistic, or if this is how any of us would sound if we played that game for 20 years straight.
even supposed hardcore /v/tards can't grasp the simple concept of just holding the A button down from when you had to previously press the button. instead people call him autistic.
But he is autistic anon. No one could figure out all these programming nuances and spend mind numbing hours upon hours to accomplish these things without it.
He's the good kind of autist though and his videos are fascinating.
>we'll finally get to the video
Imagine the orgasm he must have when he discivers a way to save another half long annoying A press.
Or even A FULL ONE! He must be masturbating the whole m64- video where it finally works.
>tfw you will never love and enjoy a game that much
We need more people like pannenkoek
>Mario can reach speeds high enough to propell himself into a parallel universe
>ElectricalBeast wasn't joking when he said Mario borrows power from the Time Gods and can Teleport
This is one of the most interesting things I've seen in years. a guy talking about parallel universes and slopes in mario 64
>expect short video about a neat trick
>get a lesson on quantum mechanics
Watched the entire video. Did not regret it A++++++++++ would do business again.
>Mario 64 turned form a platformer into one of the most difficult puzzle games imaginable
I never would have thought such a thing possible
>/v/ parrots Undertale is a tumblr game
>Creator obviously doesn't give two shits about tumblr sensitivity bullshit
>Creator most likely is a /v/eteran that's browsed here longer than most of the shitposters shitting on his game have considering he said his regret from fame is no longer being able to "shitpost" on his twitter
He probably edges for the entire twelve hours waiting for mario to exceed lightspeed and reach one of the PUs. Simple cloning or no joystick runs can only get you off for so long.
Mario 64 extreme glitch porn, not even once man
>Has normie female friends
>Tells others to get out from under their rocks
FUCKING Normies get out REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
He's done better than gaining speed for 12 hours, sort of. This is a theorycraft one to save some A-press that involves collecting coins for 10 days until a second 100 coin star appears, then collecting that one to get a bit of extra jump distance or something
almost all posts calling him autistic acknowledge that it's oddly fascinating due to the complexity involved, but to think any typical rational human would even consider doing this is silly, dude's definitely got something on the autism spectrum.
>mfw i started the autistic youtube/roblox comment fight against Groundon457
I have a confession to make
I was one of the people who started the Falador Massacre
>dude spends a shit ton of time building up speed to glitch through the map and land on invisible copy of the level
>proceeds to target 6 individual triangular polygon sections and uses them to glitch through the invisible copies several more times
>while he can't see what he's doing
>and while navigating through the labyrinth of invisible copies back to the original map
>when he gets back to the map he displaces himself through the invisible copies AGAIN
>just so he can get a few frames to bounce off an enemy and collect a start without pressing the jump button.
/v/, I'm looking for a Mario 64 video
It began with Princess Peach wearing big glasses and a mustache
Her letter read something like
>Dear Mario, I hate you
>I'm going out with Bowser now
>PS Do you like my new glasses?
Mario then jumped out of the warp pipe with angry eyes, and that's all I remember
I was thinking to myself, "Why does this video have so many (you)s it's just some guy explaining game mechanics" but holy fuck it went above and beyond that to a parallel universe
>one thousand fucking dollars for reproducing a mario glitch
Wait a sec, don't tell me he had to manually collect all those coins?
>Please tell me this is tool assisted...'
>(Creator) Okay. It is tool assisted.
>the perfectly timed shyguy in the end
Ok if anything was worthy of autism then this is it. Don't want to knock the guy but jesus how can anyone fixate on something so arbitrary as this in such a complex, deep manner.
Don't do this to me.
>Originally played Mario 64 when I was 10.
>Got to enjoy the first real fun 3D platformer.
>Love it immensely. One of my more rewarding experiences.
>20 years later, and nothing has filled the hole.
>Almost 30 and hairline receding.
GUYS I HAVE MADE A NEW BREAKTHROUGH IN THE COUCH DIAGNOSIS OF THIS MAN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXkoyGfe9s4
verdict: autistic. i love the guy to death and watched most of his videos, tried to find the upwarp 1000$ bounty and so on but its hard to explain it as anything other than this.
this channel is for more of the esoteric strat development, other channel is showcase channel. this small one has like a couple hundred views per video, he knows its not that interesting to normies
Who knew that Mario 64 was actually about calculating hyperspace jumps.
how the fuck do you even discover this shit
This is a new level of TAS autism, and it is fucking glorious. Guys also pretty good at figuring out how to use charts and stuff to explain insane shit that isn't even in the thought processes of a normal human being playing a game
Like at most somebody thinks of a glitch as something that makes a game crash or an NPC float in the air. Holy shit parallel universes how did anybody figure it out what the everliving fuck. I kinda understood it because he was very thorough in his explanation but how did somebody figure that shit out
Is Mario 64 the deepest video game ever created? Fucking 20 years after it's been released and people are still finding crazy shit like this.
>waits 12 hours
what the fuck am I watching
How come SM64 is the only mario game that gets this kind of attention?
TFW I was 21 years old when YouTube launched.
I hate treads where people talk about viewing YouTube videos in there childhood.
Because the game is incredibly fun to play. Fairly easy to emulate, and features a bunch of cool exploitative quirks. You got to remember that when you glitch the fuck out of other games, it doesn't quite have the same impression as this game. It's the platforming aspect that really makes this game interesting to watch and perform.
Speaking of Sonic, there are some crazy glitches in Sonic. One of the best Sonic TASes doesn't even feature Sonic on screen for 90% of the run.
So this is the power of the autism....
Not bad, not bad at all.
But seriously that was all actually really impressive.
Never said anyone would, this isn't Facebook, I don't need likes for my post
I don't hate people for being born after me, I hate myself and am depressed about the loss of my youth.
no. This guy is doing some amazing shit with what he was given, Sonic is autistic in every sense of the word, the games, the spin-offs, the media, the fans, it's all bad. Really bad.
And to think people believe MK64 has deep lore.
>but that didn't stop me
>playing mario 64 because of this thread
>jolly roger bay
>just kinda putzing around on the first star, ship sunk if it matters
>suddenly teleport to the bottom floor while I'm still swimming about halfway down
Okay you fucks, I thought you were joking about Mario lore being deep, but as soon as I got to parallel universes, I lost my shit.
I'm a believer now.
>tfw you dont activate your scuttlebugs
>You will never live in the pre-2007 era ever again
I'm glad Scatman John died when he did. 1999 was a good year, and I'm glad he got to end it on a high note. John was a good man, I'm happy he never had to see how things would turn out.
I was wondering if anyone on here used to watch those videos. Did anyone else watch this guy's channel?
>and now time for me to explain parallel universes
Even though that is just a term for that ground detection loop phenomenon I love how nonchalantly he says that
"Before we continue getting this star in SM64 we will have to talk about parallel universes first"
"In this video I will show you how to go through the level without picking up a Yoshi. But to understand that we will have to talk a bit about quantum entanglements first."
>Nikkonolascos Wrath of the Ice King
>remember looking forward to seeing a new episode every time I looked around his channel
>all of it is gone and has been gone years ago
Where does the time go?
>people have been reposting my image for nearly four years now
On the one hand I feel really good, but on the other hand I feel like time is slipping away from me as if I'm trying to hold water.
>there's an unkillable Goomba in the final level
>people are trying to figure out how to kill it to this very day
The SM64 glitch community is a lot more deep than I thought.
are you kidding?
myspace was popular as FUCK!
if you were around during that time, you HAD a MS page.
but really, its 2007, its unanimously agreed upon as to when everything went to shit
His videos are fucking stupid, of course there's going to be glitches when you use commands you normally wouldn't be able to in how the original game was meant to be played. Some videos are "okay" and informative yeah, but those like "water shell with metal cap" or "permanently squished" are fucking awful, when the fuck have you ever seen Mario grabbing stars like items/enemies? Move on with your lives and stop supporting this austist faggot.
>It all fucking worked
Thanks for the opinion, Anon! :)
We truly wanted to hear what you had to say, and we're oh so glad of you to express yourself! :)
I hope you have a good day, my friend :).
Don't forget to always be yourself. :)
If you ever feel bad or insecure, please tell us! :)
It's never good to feel that way! I believe that with enough love and dedication, you too can be friendly! :)
How was your day today? )
I'm very curious to know, Anon. :)
All I remember watching was this 'drama' that would switch between Mario 64 and Pokemon, and the legendaries were central characters in their plot as they tried to stop this robed fucker. Forgot the name, but it had something to do with an "Ice King".
I'll be happy to see it outlast me.
There's more than a few versions of the same run. As the TASers figure out how to shave off a few seconds here and there. The one I saw was years ago. So I couldn't tell you exactly which one it was. But this is the newest one. And it should be impressive on it's own. Heavy glitch abuse.
I'M A SLOW MAN
ah... so this is what humans were meant to do...
I remember a particular sprite comic from around '03 or '04 with a self-insert Yoshi named "Yosh", and there was a strip called "Cooking with Yosh". Can't remember much else, but it stuck out to me for whatever reason and I've never found evidence of its existence since.
so which one of you jealous autists is this
anybody here have any links to some 2007/6 runescape pk montages with with like bring me to life or paralyzer what were those other songs that were really popular to put in pk videos too?
This is very educational from a game design perspective. It's not really that autistic, all things considered. A bunch of the stuff in his video is more about explaining how game engines work. Tearing apart the physics and tiny nuances in an engine is standard speedrun/ challenge run business.
If you can't appreciate it, it just shows that you're
Back in the day, you'd call these guys the elite hobbyists or game masters. Like real fucking game masters. It's a very cringey term since gaming has become normalfag dominated. When online guides didn't exist, you'd go to meetups and talk to these guys/ take notes. Since games were so simple back then and had to achievements or trophies, you had to come up with your own challenges.
It's all a bit archaic now, I realize. But being so meticulously precise and good at a video game should mean you're a fucking pro. A true, dedicated pro. Not some dipshit who claims to be MLG worthy because he pulls off a 360 no-scope.
All games/ hobbies are a waste of time. So what's the difference between grinding for literally hundreds of hours in a shitty MMO vs spending hundreds of hours taking apart a game's engine in order to pull of challenges? In the end, it's all for self satisfaction. Nobody else gives a fuck.
>Suddenly fucking Spiderman
That reminds me of this weird machinima where there was a girl that was called Tom and I think it was some kind of dirty joke. That's all I can remember. rip
You guys remember Pregame Lobby? How about when it came back for 3 episodes way way later and was shit then the guy that made it stopped again? I made so many friends over thsoe videos.
>If you run backwards along the border of water and the correct slope, you generate enough speed to boost to a parallel universe
THIS IS IT. I CAN FINALLY REACH GENSOKYO. FUCK ALL OF YOU NIGGERS I'M GOING TO THE BEACH. PEACE OUT.
Any of you guy used to go on any forums? There was this one I went to with this presumably autistic kid who would write unintelligible shit and everybody loved him, and he was obsessed with Metallica and Urkel. The webcomic the forum was based on went on hiatus a few times though and eventually the servers got fucked, and now there's nothing left. I never decided to reach out to join the Skype group they had since at the time I thought it was retarded. I miss forums nowadays. I actually did find the guy who made the webcomic, and now he's an sjw. I guess all good things come to an end.
>yfw it came full circle
I felt like I just watched a full season of some mindblowing show but it only took 25 minutes. Is this the true power of TAS?
>Building up enough speed to jump across MULTIPLE dimensions
>All so you can press A one less time
Don't get me wrong, it's cool as fuck and informative as shit, but god damn.
Apparently nobody read the part of the description where he says, "For the record, I used hacked coin values to film this, though it should work in practice."
He didn't actually sit there and manually collect every coin, he just set the value in an emulator and the got the last 100 coins.
It's just an overflow error.
Ya'll niggers think you can become a wizard just by reaching 30. It takes this sort of dedication to have any true mastery of the arcane arts. How can you expect to break the 2D barrier meet your're waifu when you can't even spend 12 hours to travel multiple dimensions in a 20 year old game?
I didn't understand until why this had so many replies until I sat through the entire video. i think I still don't fully understand. But goddamn, this is amazing. The only other /v/ related thing I've seen that has blown me away so much is probably that guy who built the perfect sim city in 3 years
>we went from the concepts of a half press to FUCKING PARALLEL UNIVERSES
WHAT THE FUCK
WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK
What the fuck is this nigga talking about.
>I'm talking about jumping without jumping
>now let's goo off on some weird ass bug shit through a wall for no reason
>whoa, let's rev up speed ofr 12 fucking hours
what the fuck
95% of the replies are just anons trying to fit in.
Basically, any post that gets about 7-10 reactions to it, will tip over and everyone else will start posting reactions just to be a part of something.
Count the action mario can perform in a square
Now count the number of squares in that part of the level.
NOW FIND THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF ACTION AND SQUARES TO TRIGGER IT
>>Oh, if I just press the button before I start recording it doesn't count!
Is English not your first language? It's a game run, A is pressed before entering the level, therefor the A Press is registered as part of the Castle segment
Do you know about "Parallel Universes"?
its never about just playing the game anymore is it?
It's amazing that he spells out what a half press is, AND IT DOESN'T INVOLVE ACTUALLY HALF WAY PRESSING A BUTTON, yet these retards crop up in the comments every fucking time talking about half way pressing
this is like the fourth time I've seen it happen this week.
video's interesting as all fuck but at this point I think it's people just trying to force it into a meme or something
6 hours late but I also watched that shit. It was called Wrath of the Ice God. Really loved it back in the day. I tried watching it again the other day but I couldn't help but skip a lot each episode. Either it was always this boring or my attention span has diminished over the years.
>Regigigas never did anything
Rather than actual PU I bet the game transports mario back to the edge of the map in the opposite direction from where he exited. Like how the world is round and you just go back to where you start after you walked a certain distance.
I know I'm replying to an old post, but that's pretty much humanity when it comes to competition.
I mean, step back a second and think about sports as a whole. People go fucking ape shit, FUCKING APE SHIT, like literally rioting and tearing each other apart, over whether or not a sack of leather gets passed through 2 metal poles or not. The entire world economy, human existance as we know it, is intensely influenced by this.
It's just in our blood. We get these ideas for challenges, and push ourselves to the enth degree in order to accomplish them. Of course, sports are celebrated, so theres huge drive, and I'm by no means saying sports are useless, just that it truly serves no purpose on its own unless otherwise hyped up. By existing it validates itself.
Also, remember, no jump runs are a huge part of the speed run community. Not to take credit from that dude, but I highly doubt he figured all that shit out himself. The entire speedrun community has this shit down, pat. This was likely just an explanation to casuals like us on what a lot of speedrunners already know and factor into their play naturally without thinking about it. The work he likely did was figure out that particular route in that particular level, but this is shit thats been built up by multiple people over multiple yeras for the sake of competition.
>Spending 12 hours in order to gain enough speed to enter a parallel universe just to not fully press the A button

>In late 1998 Larkin was diagnosed with lung cancer, but he continued his musical work despite being told to take it easy from his substantial workload. In June 1999, Larkin released his fourth and ultimately final album as Scatman John, Take Your Time. Shortly afterwards, he was sent into intensive treatment. Even while suffering, Larkin remained positive, saying “Whatever God wants is fine by me ... I’ve had the very best life. I have tasted beauty.” Scatman John died at his home in Los Angeles on December 3, 1999 at the age of 57. He was cremated and his ashes were scattered at sea near Malibu, California.
I knew he died back then, but not from lung cancer. He didn't deserve the pain.
Uh, what the fuck did I just watch? Holy shit, is this guy legitimately autistic?
Fuck me, there's still this much we still don't know about breaking old games? Let alone something this mind-breaking? I can just imagine some Zelda MM method where doing something like this can just launch you to the moon or something. With geniuses like this, the possibilities truly are endless. What a time to be alive.
This sort of thing likely exists in every old game, it's just that only a few are beloved enough for people to find them. If OoT wasn't the hit it was, no one would no about the wrong warp that takes you from Gohma to the end of Ganon's castle. If Super Mario World wasn't so popular, we might never have found out that you can manipulate sprites to execute code that warps you to the end credits.
>tfw Mario is canonically faster than sonic
I mean, it was a good video, I watched the whole thing. But holy fuck.
>mfw after 12 hours of manipulating quantum mechanics and jumping through universes he ends by bopping off of the scuttlebug he sets up at the beginning
He mentions it briefly in the video, in his video where he gets into the secret aquarium with 0 A presses, he builds up speed in the same spot but for 25 hours instead of 12, since otherwise he can't reach the syncing speed of each slope in order.
