>but first we need to talk about parallel universes
>Why do you think he doesn't?
Well because it seems he has a lot of free time on his hands. Not something someone would have if they were in college or employed. I still admire how he explains things though and his voice isn't boring. He has talent.
so.... this is the power... of autism...
>Well because it seems he has a lot of free time on his hands
This video is a culmination of almost 20 years of glitch experimentation in a community, I'd wager most/all of the glitches weren't found by him aside from figuring out the slopes in that tunnel room, the acceleration time is irrelevant because Tool Assisted means he can just speed through it, and after routing it doesn't require a great deal of trial and error like an RTA challenge because he can manually control what inputs go on what frame with 100% accuracy.
Yeah, it's simply assuming a lot about him, I know plenty of people who are really skilled at certain things but lose drive when they try to apply it outside of a passion project, but I also know plenty of people who love their careers so much that they apply their career skills in their hobby.
Judging from the speed numbers, I think it's safe to assume that each single speed unit is about half a kilometer per hour. Mario's running speed in game is about 31, and converted straight across would make him nearly as fast as an olympic sprinter, so I think it's safe to reduce that number by about half so his running speed is roughly 15kmph. He's more jogging than running anyway.
When he starts actually traversing universes he's going about 239,350 kilometers per hour, or roughly 195.39 times the speed of sound. Now, this is nowhere close to light speed, which is 874,030 times the speed of sound, but it shows that the barrier between universes is more fragile than one would think, and might be able to be broken by technology of the near future, if not current technology.
Wouldn't this also mean that light carries over through parallel universes and that it is the one constant throughout all universes entirely, and thus discovering Faster Than Light travel would effectively mean the ability to travel to parallel universes as well as travel back and forward in time due to the infinite multiverse theory?
It's a videogame, real life doesn't work that way.
There isn't any way to currently know if parallel universes even exist, let alone the requirements to move through them.
>"let me explain half-presses"
>explanation blatantly outlines that a press is a three-step process
for a reasonably smart person he's pretty fucking stupid
We're talking theoretical Mario physics here for fun, you ultra-serious fucknugget, we know they don't apply to real life, humping a wall for twenty five hours doesn't fucking propel you into warp speed.
>humping a wall for twenty five hours doesn't fucking propel you into warp speed.
We can't be sure, no one has ever tried it.
Search 'The Humping Pact'.
It's about men who literally hump the fuck out of basically everything in Brussells, including walls.
I'm certain some of them would of entered some extra fucking time fuckery with all that humping going on.
Nigger if you fucking watched the fucking video, he explains the third part doesn't have any use or effect in the game so it's disregarded. Holy shit stop, nitpicking to make yourself feel better. Clearly this autistic guy is smarter than you.
Mario 64's graphics bugged the hell outta me. I never realized until I was fifteen that the round objects were just clip-art, giving the illusion of a 3D image. And those black balls rolling around in Bob-Omb Battlefield just add insult to injury.
>Mario has had the power to fuck with parallel universes this entire time.
>He has hid his power level this entire time
>it's accompanied by a stupid post
Why is this so common
>The release doesn't do anything
but it does, it ends the various actions that he explains the "hold" part of the press sustains, like slowing descent when you have the wing hat
you don't get to disregard a third of a process because it doesn't jive with your bullshit explanation

I realized that when I was 10.
The stairs in OoT are just textures.
I knew something was off, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I saw it more as I got older. Keep in mind I was seven at the time. I noticed it with Ocarina of Time, too.
He has a bit of a lisp. Also, the vocal awkwardness associated with Asperger's only comes out in social settings; most aspies can speak just as eloquently as a normal person if they're by themselves or if they're explaining something that they know a lot about.
I know this because I am one.
>"The initial press doesn't count"
>"Because I said so."
Because in the context of the entire run it's already counted. If you have to jump to get into the level then you can just keep holding it. He calls it a half press because then you know that it requires a press but if you are doing a full game run then you can use an earlier press
When doing IL you only count actions made during the level.
Each IL is eventually combined together, along with movement to get from each level to the next, along with setup, to make a full run.
The button press does count in the full run, but when reading it as an IL, you don't include it.
It's like including the time required to get a required powerup for a specific level in a TAS.

Come on now.
the guy is doing the level in as few A button presses as possible
in order to do so he exploits an integer truncation glitch and that's where the parallel universe talk comes in
I was seven when I got Mario 64 too and I understood what was happening immediately - that some things were flat and some things were made of shapes. It's very obvious.

>Misaligned my scuttlebugs

Today isn't going right for me at all.
I saw these videos on my feed like 3 weeks ago and watched a bunch of them. Now /v/ is suddenly shilling this guy hard.
What happened? They've been up for a long time, why is there so much exposure now? Is there some cross-site ad campaign for his videos or something?
I mean I get what he's talking about but it jsut seems kinda stupid to go to such lengths to justify you stroking yourself to how "skilled" you think you are.
>"Oh you did a mario level with one a press well I did it in one half sucker!"
Can you make one more thread about this joke? I don't think three is nearly enough.
>literally offering a grand to whoever can figure out how to reproduce an instance of mario warping a vertical distance under currently unknown conditions
This guy is something else.
The reasoning is that, if it can be performed reliably on all stages, it could revolutionize all tool assisted runs of SM64.
It could potentially make it possible to get 0 A presses in the entire game, as well as completely cut down on the time required to do both a 0 star and a 120 star TAS.
This find is potentially on par with the backwards longjump skips.
The guy seems dedicated enough to have looked through the entire broadcast to simulate every single button and analog stick movement the guy did, maybe it had something to do with it
It's interesting how this works but christ

Why do people climb mountains, anon?
This man's dedication and understanding of concepts the programmers likely didn't even fully realize is fucking sublime. The best part is the idea it takes probably years of figuring out and lining up multiple precise mechanics in order to bypass the simplest one in the game is so fucking ridiculous you can tell he didn't' give a rats ass about recognition.
He literally did it because he could. Because it was a means to achieve a goal. Because it's

Amazing! I can't wait to crosspost this hot new ebin meme thread on /r/games and get tons of upvotes!

Yeah yeah, autism is just a buzzword, but this shit is ridiculous to the point of pure insanity and amazement.

/v/ mirrors the majority of society in having a jaded mentality when it comes to displaying passion over something-- especially vidya-- probably because so few people are open about such things out of fear of being labeled or ostracized.
"Autism" is the same as "tryhard". So long as the person is enjoying themselves without actively bothering others in their pursuits-- the problem lies with the person unhappily obsessing over the happily obsessed.
>tfw jumped 3PU and got misaligned on my way to work this morning

How many times have you people talked about this today?
Don't you ever get bored of talking about the same thing over and over again in a span of 5 hours?
>The activation process requires almonds to be soaked in water for a period of 12 hours. Advocates believe this deactivates the enzyme inhibitors and brings the nut to life. Once the almonds have been soaked, they are then dehydrated at low temperatures (40 degrees) over a 24-hour period. Dehydrated almonds have a similar flavour and texture to roasted.
>There is almost no research that indicates whether “activation” works or not.
as someone who found out about him last week, the recent commentary videos are really easy to understand having no experience with this shit. i watched some of his older videos too, and while they are interesting it's not quite as fun to watch and way more confusing without the voice-over commentary and such
>12 hours to activate almonds
>12 hours to build up enough speed to warp to PU
I guess we have a problem of language here. What defines a "Button press"? what is the exact definition? Is the release of the button a part of it or not? Who is authorized to make such definitions?
>this nigger has a 1000 dollaroos bounty bug hunting video
Of course. More popular games usually have more of them exposed. For example, something like Halo 2 had that popular weapon switching to sword lunge trick that allowed you to both sword lunge insane distance, and get out of bounds with it. Especially with the help of other players doing the same. Sure, that one was well known, but there's plenty of examples in every game where you just break what should be possible.
The button press is the full cycle of pressing the button, holding it, and letting go so it can be pressed one full time. The half button press isn't actually pressing the button half a time, it's a notation saying if you start the level with the button pressed you can achieve things you couldn't if you didn't start the level with the button pressed. In a full run, that "held" state would piggy back off of an earlier button press and not need another one, whereas if you play the level in isolation it would need a unique press. So the comnunity just say it's half a press when looking at a level in isolation, because theoretically these would be combined into a full run.
A lot of games have bad geometry that let you build up speed or eject you at high speeds, but I'm not if modern games use a single 15 bit integer that rolls over infinitely to check for floor collision
it honestly doesn't matter, i don't get why people keep posting/commenting about the definition of a presses. the challenge isn't "no a press", it's "least a presses" so it's not exactly misleading either.
Well the original glitch was found on an actual Japanese cartridge, so good luck with that.
If it was just interference with the cartridge pins, it wouldn't be possible to recreate on an emulator
>mfw he comes up with the solution in that cave tunnel having surgical precision with the geometry of the cave
how do you even think in that?, I would just give it up at that point, even if my brain was capable of thinking all that parallel universe thing
that's fucking genius I say, the man is not an autist
its a genius
Can i get a quick sanity check here:
This is a run where the goal is to press A as few times as possible, and he's gotten the entire game down to a "half press" which is pressing down A once, then HOLDING it for the rest of the run?
Okay. This did me in. I need to sleep before I chip away at my sanity and end up like the Scuttlebug somehow.
He has the entire game down to pressing, holding, and letting go (so a full cycle) of A less than 37 times. On this particular video, he presses A fully twice, along with holding A from before the level started.
Yeah and he fucking earned that stroking right faggot.
>an old videogame no one cares about outside of nostalgia
I wonder what it's like being underage in the year 2016.
You know, besides tremendously retarded.

He's a school teacher named Scott Buchanan.
People seem to assume that if someone has put a lot of time and effort into something they don't have a social life. They're not like the average /v/ neet that shitposts and plays video games for 18+ hours every day.
We've have reached full circle from being ostracized by our peers and family about video games being our hobby and a waste of time.
Now we're ostracizing someone for a similar hobby that is also about playing video games.

He is, but you can't see it on your computer screen. It will take ten years
unless you're misaligned.

Glad I'm not the only one.
They freaked me out as a kid. They don't have a head, and their eyes are just floating on their "body," which I thought was some kind of weird brain. It definitely added to the creepy atmosphere of Hazy Maze Cave.
The fucking gas tunnels didn't help either.
They were redesigned in subsequent games to be "cuter" and look more like a Mario enemy.

You're laughing now """""Henry"""" but I will be laughing in the end!
He's used it quite a few times especially on his alt channel but he never really commentated. It's usually yellow text, annotation, or in the description.
In his defense this is like the 20th time I've seen this thread posted since the video came out. No one even posts his other videos (like the no button stars).
Moot would be ashamed by the lack of original content.
>they don't call me the scuttlebug whisperer for nothing
Is it possible to break real life like super mario 64?
What if we could go fast enough?
From my understanding, even when you're outside the level, the game's collision detection still thinks you're in it, essentially creating a copy of the level's geometry,
integers have a set range of numbers they can be due to having a set bit size
if you go over that number, you come out at the other end of the scale
it's a modulo operation, like he said
it ain't that hard
I don't see how you think that someone would go through the effort of shitposting on a PC and a phone simultaenously but not just restart his router when banned

>good work men
Are those the men who fuck you in your faggot ass on a daily basis while you go into spastic convulsions over a stupid video game from 20 years ago.
Get rekt nerd.
He enters the stage while holding A, so technically the stage takes no A press, because it happened before the level.
It's not actually a "no A press" run because he's holding it, so to distinguish the 2 runs, it's called half an A press. A 1 press run would be a run where he presses A inside the stage.
not wanting to fuck defenceless children makes me deserve to die now and apparently be a gay under 18 child.
