let's talk about parallel universes instead
>Hey guys remember this thing?
>Lol guys remember?
>Mods start deleting Mario threads
>WAAH WAAH FREEDOM OF SPEECH WAAH WAAH HIROSHIMOOOOT
I wish there was a parallel universe where all you newfags would stay
I love that video but dear lord we don't need 3 threads at once, each with the same jokes being repeated over and over.
Give it a rest.
>one of my favourite all time games is now a meme
>every time I'll mention this I'll get flooded by "TWELVE HOURS", "SCUTTLEBUG", "PARALLEL UNIVERSE", and "HALF PRESS" and will be ridiculed for liking a meme game
Welp, guess I have to hate even SM64 now. Fuck you people.
>he couldn't activate his scuttlebug
Stay salty man.
I would say it would blow over in a few weeks... but given this guy's track record, he's gonna keep producing more of this sort of stuff, and it's gonna get crazier each time.
This shit ain't autism.
It's college level stuff being applied to something you are obsessed with.
The guys pretty good to be honest.
You know there's a point where someone is so dedicated to their autism that it becomes admirable. This went way beyond that point and is the most autistic thing I've ever seen.
This is spending thousands of hours on something that has no relevance and will get you no jobs, because of your obsession with one particular game when he could be practicing the very same concepts in broader terms
In short, it's literal autism
an a press is an a press. You can't say its only a half
It's official. Fags have ruined video games by turning them into a series of precise monotonous inputs to get the most efficient results.
Think I'll switch to huffing paint or something
Is there any video game character who could defeat Super Mario?
And I don't just mean Super Mario Bros. 3 Super Mario, equipped with Hammer Bros. suit, with an arsenal of suits in his inventory as back-up, who can breathe underwater and who defeated the sun itself. I don't mean Super Mario World Super Mario, capable of stomping entire castles to the ground, equipped with Feather Cape for limitless flying. And I don't mean Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario, who can breathe in space, regain a third of his vitality with one coin, and the one who recreated the entire universe from scratch, and who can survive inside a black hole. I don't even mean Paper Mario Super Mario, with the power of all Star Spirits and The Thousand Year Door, with abilities such as Starstorm, Clock Out which stops time, and Supernova, who was actually killed once but came back from hell to the land of the living to destroy his killer; and thus having the ability to freely move between life and the afterlife. I'm talking about Super Mario 64 Super Mario, with the Wing Cap, Metal Cap, Invisible Cap, capable of cloning other beings, with Scuttlebug Jamboree, Goomba Staircase, Goomba Oasis, utilizing Pedro Spot, being able to create HOLPs allowing him to release objects from his hand at any point in space no matter how far away, with the ability to increase his speed to infinite amounts several times the speed of light and inter-dimensional travel to Parallel Universes and back, and being able to misalign the QPUs of his foes trapping them forever in a world they cannot interact with, with all his abilities mentioned before, and prep time.
It sucks that this game is suddenly considered shit.
How many hours prep time? 12? 25? He may be able to remake the universe in his image but without a full 10 days preparation he's not getting the 2nd Whomp's Fortress star without pressing A
It's not actually half of a press.
If it's just that one star, from start of level, it's pressed once.
If it's the whole game, chances are it'll be pressed for something else and held, meaning that it'll still be being held, but wouldn't have been pressed in that level.
But if you don't want to watch the video:
Basically Mario's position value gets trunctaed when the game checks for collision detection. That means that when Mario's way outside the course, it can act like he's standing on an invisible, incomplete copy of the course. That's a "parallel universe". By building up speed using glitches that are somehow similar to the well-known backwards long jump glitch, you can then traverse bizarre routes in and out of parallel universes to end up at locations you want to get to without actually jumping.
I honestly didnt realise that there's entire categories for finishing a game with as little button presses as possible until just last week.
What the fuck is wrong with those people
ALSO WHY THE FUCK IS THIS A THING
It's a hell of a lot more satisfying to complete a challenge that can't be solved with conventional thinking rather than following the path designed by developers to be easy enough for anyone to follow.
WHY DOES IT FUCKING MATTER HOW MANY TIMES HE PRESSES A?
Luigi is Mario fron another parallel universe
>tfw you get back to your own universe
Why does everyone hate this guy? I actually think it is cool people are discovering stuff 10 years later.
Overall it shows that had good knowledge of how the game engine actually work.
Now if he applies that new games that would be great.
Too bad isn't any games like Mario 64 now and it's the same stuff over and over
>don't know what people mean by 12 hours
>get to 10:36
>think it's just an interesting if pointless look at the Mario 64 mechanics
>suddenly 12 HOURS LATER and PARALLEL UNIVERSES
Okay, so I have actually watched the whole thing instead of the bit where he drops 12 hours and PU
And this guy is a genius, plain and simple. He thought of every single thing there is to think. He went through a different dimensions just to return to core dimension, use elevator in that dimension and then continues to travel through dimensions towards the goal. In the end, he finds that bug he was supposed to bounce off is misplaced and what does he do? Thinks on his feet and realignes the bug to the favorable position.
I love this guy.
Are you kidding? I never feel like I don't understand what he's talking about, it's really quite impressive that he explains this stuff so eloquently and in a fairly short amount of time.
10% of people call him an autist out of shame and awe
30% of people call him an autist as a term of endearment
60% of people are just in awe
100% of people are currently living in misalignment in a parallel universe
Mario is just part of the world, so it's actually just the world reprogramming itself
post yfw you will NEVER EVER be in a scuttlebug jumbaree
>tfw we're in a parallel universe the Berenstein universe and the reason why SJWs are so prominent and Europe is going to shit is because our qpu is misaligned and the key to jumping back to our own universe involves Mario 64 and Pannenkek is the only one who knows it.
My God he's our only hope.
So you are saying that a video game made almost 20 years ago has the key of creating a parallel universes that rest of the scientific world has not even had glimpses of?
And I thought that he was the autistic one.
The parallel universe in the context of mario 64 is used to describe the phenomena of mario traveling out of bounds while his collision box is somewhere else. It is never implied that mario is actually traveling to another physical universe, it is simply some jargon used to describe something complex in a concise matter. Almost every video game has terms like this and you're fucking stupid for taking it literally
That half A press guy could have become a theoretical physicist, a computer scientist, or a mathematician with his life. Instead, he'll remain a permavirgin in his mom basement playing Mario until he dies alone.
It's a fucking work of fiction. Of course there isn't any REAL multiversal travel because again, it's a work of fiction. However in the context of the video game, you are essentially travelling across multiple Universes.
Can any vidya character beat Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome? The same Doug Dimmadome who is the founder and inventor of the Dimmadollars, the coiner of the phrase "Dimmadarn", who also was the founder of the Blubber Nugget brand Whale Nuggets, the same Doug Dimmadome who was reunited with his long lost son Dale Dimmadome after he drank wish granting lemonade, whom also shows Crash Nebula on Ice at the Dimmsdale Dimmadome, owned by Doug Dimmadome? I though so, you're Dimmadone.
But its not. Its causing glitches to happen and calling it parallel universe because someone saw the term in a scifi movie once.
Taking it literally. Because those amazed by it arent this retarded.
One is a real world name, one is a wrong name for another real thing. You dont call Mario Bros. "Cheeseburger".
Doctors get paid a lot, but the amount of years you have to put into medical school and the stress you have to go through if you choose to be a surgeon is generally not worth it.
>It's actually a 0.6666 press
Someone tell this to him, he needs to know the truth
The glitch in the context of the video in the discussion.
Are you this butthurt at me for breaking your dream of accessing parallel universes from your shitty N64 cart? Look harder, perhaps you will find Narnia in your closet.
However, he performs multiple glitches in the video, all of which have different effects and require different execution. How do you propose that we differentiate these different glitches in a short and concise manner so out conversations don't turn into "Yeah that glitch at 4:55".
In an attempt to break records in playing old games such as Mario 64, this guy wants to reduce a playthrough from a current 4-A-pressed record to 3. A is the jump button.
In order to perform this game breaking feat, he literally breaks the game. From abusing room rendering shortcuts Nintendo did to make an enemy fly like 10 meters in the air, to building up virtually infinite speed, this guy explains his achievement method by method, trick by trick, glitch by glitch.
According to a rounding function performed on Mario's location, he and others figured you could step outside the map's boundaries into the empty void, but still interact with the map's geometry, thus skipping enemies and obstacles. They called this parallel universes because analogies.
By building up his speed for 12 hours and jumping between "universes", he could use the map's geometry to slowly descend from a tall spot without jumping to gain height.
It's impressive and incredibly idiotic.
There are 3 stages, press, hold, release.
and press+hold would be 0.66, not fucking half, do your fractions.
And with that, he would have a 2.66 press, not a 2.5 which can't be rolled down.
This man gets it, I need another autism Magna Carta from this man
>"Yeah that glitch at 4:55"
Whats wrong with that? But sure, call it your parallel universes or whatever. You should first present it to scientific community though, they might be really interested in hearing about a technology that can take anyone to a parallel universe.
>He doesn't want to go beyond lightspeed to a parallel universe to activate his scuttlebug.
You're the autistic one my friend.
>Whats wrong with that?
Because you shouldn't need to refer back to something to understand what someone is talking about. That's the reason why most glitches have actual names
I do agree that "parallel universes" isn't a good name though because in reality the game sees it as mario's collision data looping back around because of integer overflow.
I like how you're able to talk about a glitch by using the video as a context but talking about a specific glitch in the context of a specific video game triggers you because of how people decided to call it.
If its tool assisted, why cant he use a tool that automatically completes the game when it starts? Then he is not pressing any buttons ever at all and he can gloat to Miyamoto just the same.
The scientific community would laugh in your face though. If you were trying to improve the run, would you carry around the video with you to show people what you mean every time you mention that specific technique, or would you develop a term for it? The name is arbitrary it could be anything as long as people understand what you're talking about in conversation. When you meet someone with Wood as their last name do you assume that they are made of wood?
>cloud to butt
>twelve to I'm a pedophile
>parallel universes to how I'm retarded
These threads crack me the fuck up, I'm so glad this script exists.
REMINDER THAT THOSE WHO DISLIKE THE VIDEO ARE SONYGGERS WHO ARE ASSMAD THAT THEIR MOVIE GAMES DON'T HAVE ANYTHING THIS INTRICATELY DESIGNED TO THEIR GAMES
I bet Crash Bandicoot doesn't have this shit.
I think you are taking it too literally. The term is only used when talking to others who fully understand that the term isn't used literally, it isn't used to introduce the concept to someone without explanation. When I go fix someone's computer I don't throw out terms like trojan or ad-ware because they won't understand what those terms mean without explanation. The terms are only useful to those who are knowledgeable about the field, but literally they make no sense.
So instead you get the situation where you talk to someone about a parallel universe in a Mario game and they run out of the door to share it to the world like a madman because hey, its literal parallel universe, what is more important than that?
I love Crash Bandicoot games but it's basically a 2D platformer where instead of going to the right you go forward. Doesn't really make use of the third dimension in my opinion.
Still a great game.
Do you even read my posts? Within the community the term is useful. The name is arbitrary, but shown your prior inability to come up with a new one, you really don't care about that. You're no better than the people you're berating for "forcing" this meme, as you're also taking it literally.
Assuming you're actually serious, how is this "ruining" video games? How is attempting to break game mechanics in silly ways purely out of passion "ruining" video games?
Why does it offend you and in what possible way are you negatively effected by this?
What the fuck is wrong with you? A lot of people who watch the video don't know about coding or the technical terms to describe what is actually happening. So he uses a term anyone is familiar with.
>building up speed for TWELVE FUCKING HOURS
What the fuck, this is some god-tier autism right here.
No man, it's amazing but some people's brains are just not clever enough to understand what's happening even with graphical aid.
This technical shit is what keeps old games alive. It's not like games like undertale has anything to offer other than the sensation of 'hacking' the game.
>tries to explain half-presses
>explanation of a press clearly shows three steps
this nigger can travel to parallel universes but he can't into basic fractions
Oh don't get me wrong, I'm able to follow what the guy is saying the whole time, he does a good job of explaining shit, but how the fuck do people figure these sort of things out? It's impressive as fuck, I certainly wouldn't be able to do it.
Nintendrones have been known to be social outcasts, like me. It's not impressive considering its the same guy that TAS'd his way to a hidden coin and found a goomba spawn never used in the game. Yet I fail to find the wrong in this, to me, it's at least more respectable compared to speedruns after Chibi's error.
>"So you see, with the use of parallel universes, we can collect the star with just a little time on our hand and creative thinking."
>"uhhh yeah thats uhh neat anon. I better head out now, getting late"
THE 12 HOURS ARE IN-GAME TIME
HE FAST-FORWARDS AND USES A PROGRAM TO CONTINUOUSLY PRESS THE SAME BUTTONS
HE SAYS THAT IN THE FUCKING VIDEOS
HE COULD BE WATCHING TV FOR A FEW HOURS WHILE THIS IS GOING ON FOR ALL WE KNOW
so we're still pretending that pressing a button isn't a three step process?
calm your tits, anon
i'm getting worried about you
anon we know this. It's still fucking stupid as hell creating a theoretical playthrough of only a handful of button presses that a computer can only do.
>oh wow a computer can play this game really efficiently
No one cares.
I hope he came up with this with months of work and communication from some dedicated forum, and not just by himself
>reporting does not require a captcha anymore
I was waiting for someone to post this
If he presses the A button to enter a course and holds it, that is half of the press. If he continues to hold and releases it in the course, that is the other half.
He explained this pretty clearly, Anon. He even graphed it for you. You're just so stupid.
Suddenly? I hated SM3DW. Just look at those ghost houses. There were no hidden exits, nothing. It was just running through it from point a to point b. That game was a huge disappointment from the very beginning.
>He even graphed it for you
yeah, all three steps of it
>You're just so stupid
the irony is fucking palpable
You are retarded.
There are 3 steps to a button press normally: the press, duration(hold), and release. Some games care about the release(fighting games/negative edging), others don't. In Mario, there are 2 steps that matter. The press and the hold. The release does nothing but allow for further input.
Since pre-holding the button alters Mario's actions, he's saying it doesn't count as a full press because only half of the button press THAT MATTERS is necessary. I don't care to argue over that because I'm not autistic enough, but there you go. There are only 2 relevant button registers for Mario. Pressing and holding. Since some of his actions only require the hold, he considers them half presses.
>WITHOUT THESE KICKS
>I FALL THROUGH THE ELEVATOR
>BUT WITH THE KICKS
>I CAN RIDE IT UP
who thought autism could be so gangsta since slim jesus?
Fuck parallel universes, I want him to explain this motherfucker
in a parallel universe, touching marty teleports you to bowser's rainbow road, but you have to glitch through 42 PUs consecutively at once at in under .4 seconds until you break the spacetime continuum, allowing the game to reset and marty to be unlocked
then you touch position him in front of peach's castle and bump him through the doors as bowser, putting him in the dungeons of sm64 where it all happens
Confirmed. My uncle works at CERN's Nintendo division.
A Button press is made up of two actions: Pressing the button down, and releasing.
He enters the stage after the first action was committed. Slitting the press into three actions doesn't make sense because holding down a button is the result of the initial press.
I was disappointed with it since it was revealed, like seriously, it's just a New SMB game with a Z-axis, but no, there were actually people that were glad this was happening because it's the 3D Mario they were expecting instead of the ''collectathon'' cancer Mario 64 brought in or something.
>this level of tortured logic to gloss over sheer autism
I'm enjoying these threads immensely if only to appreciate the rare quality of sperging on display
Daily reminder that if you haven't spent 12 hours building up speed in Mario 64 you don't know SHIT about video games.
How can you say you love vidya if shit like this isn't impressive. I fucking hate normalfags.

it's ok, we still love you the way you are
The invasion of normalfags is what caused the autism meme
Calling someone an autist here is the same as calling him a nerd
You should all be nerds you normalfag scum get the fuck our of my board
You shouldn't ever ask somebody why something is funny.
If you need the comedy explained to you, then you will not get anything out of the explanation.
Of course, this is just a dismissive insinuation that the video isn't funny at all, and you're just a stiff no-fun allowed twat. I get it. ;^)
What really astounds me is how deep is the stuff that this guy is dealing with, and yet he can explain it all with ease.
I really doubt the college thesis of any of these anons who spout "autism" will ever get this much attention and admiration/criticism.
And sure, in the end everything what he does in this video is pointless, but it's no different than posting on /v/, browsing facebook for hours on end, or just playing a game normally.
Honestly, figuring most of this out probably took him less time than we've spent on /v/ the past few years, and at least he learned practical applications of college math, which is a lot more useful than anything you'll ever learn here.
Only negative thing I can say is that it looks boring as fuck, but I guess it isn't for him, so good for him.
>graphing out the actual hardware inputs
good god, this guy would actually be great in a STEM field but he's too busy being a retard. maybe even a logistical field, or finance
but NO, I WANT TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES

This isn't any different from smashfags and fighting gamefags counting frames and shit smh tbh fam

god god, this guy would actually be good volunteering in a soup kitchen but he's too busy being retarded. Maybe even a charity drive or an animal shelter
but NO, I WANT TO SHITPOST ON 4CHAN
it's the longest possible way to explain that he needs to keep the A button held for the bonus of air acceleration in Mario 64 but without actually jumping. It could be avoided completely if he just said "keep the A button held" instead of "half press."
Entanglement and other weird physics bullshit has been bothering me lately and I'm literally considering whether the madness of this video holds any keys to explain quantum mysteries. Holy fucking shit this video is hardcore.
When the use of the scuttlebug was finally revealed it actually blew my mind. I cannot process the thoughts that led to these discoveries.

Last night this video was basically techno-babble to me. Mind-blowing, yes, but I was completely lost by the time parallel universes came into play.
I watched it again this morning and everything clicked into place, now I understand most everything he did and why he did it.
Hey guys, Pannenkoek here.
Just wanted to mention that this isn't explained properly in the video, but the trick takes 12 hours in game time, not real time. In reality it's only about 8 hours of running because the time distortion starts to kick in once Mario is getting near light speed.
are you seriously implying that this cancerous website didn't start off on a fucking clubfoot?
jesus christ, it's like you honestly believe the delusion that you've painted for yourself.
Pictured is the lost 4 hours.
An A press is still an A press, it can't be half an A press.
Does this mean Mario can travel through time?
This is easily the best thing to come out of 2016 so far.
this game is the fucking bee's balls, sure it's got some dumbfun mechanics like the catsuit and shit, but it's a great time with some great visuals and soundtrack. People who hate this game are too busy circlejerking over "m-muh turn-based Mario RPG's" or "muh Super Mario Galaxy 3 WHEN???"
Since when was this board right about the obvious games (DORF = Good, CoD = Bad, etc)
The term "0.5 press" isn't literal, of course it's not fractional. If you wanted to be literal, then you'd call it a full press or not even a press depending on context.
E.g. it's a fucking term.
I'm digging the memes that are gonna come out of this.
you're in the wrong universe, anon
realign and get your speed up, only 12 hours to go
ok i didn't even read to the end of the post to see that you are fibbing, "henry"
by the way the word is time dilation, and that would have no effect on our perception of time, only mario's... well sort of. it's complicated. even more complicated than parallel universes!
but just for kicks, let's say that mario's running speed of 32 units is equivalent to roughly 20 km/h, or about 5.6 m/s, a fair guess for an average person's running speed. certainly mario is more athletic than the average person, but he's also short with stubby little legs so he probably has a short stride. anyway, the speed that pannenkoek attains for Rolling Rocks is about 479,000 units. that comes out to 83,160 m/s, 0.02% the speed of light, not enough to experience significant time dilation
for kicks, the largest PU speed I've ever seen was his climb to the ledge to enter secret aquarium. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujLjEbCykOQ
here he obtains a speed of about 992,000 units, or 172,222 m/s, 0.05% the speed of light
am i an autist now too?
it's because the definition of 'half an a press' has nothing to do with the number of operations in an A press.
it has to do with doing a single-attempt, full 120 star run versus an individual star run for each star.
the star in question on HMC would take 1 a press if you did JUST that star. but, if you did a star just before in in a 120-star run (or even a 2-star run, to be honest) that required an A press, you could be holding A from that A press and do the rolling rocks star in Hazy Maze Cave. so, in this case the Rolling Rocks star required 0 a presses - it just leeched off a previous one. if you do the star on its own, there's no previous A press to leech off of, so you have to press and hold A.
and the word they use for that is a half a-press.
That guy is right. Buttons are binary. Either pressed or not pressed.
Though on the software side there are 4 states:
1: No Button
>Previously 0 and is now 0
>Previously 0 and is now 1
>Previously 1 and is now 1
>Previously 1 and is now 0
The guy in the video calls running off a ledge with a button held a half press because he gets the benefit of the airspeed without actually jumping.
>FIVE THREADS A DAY I CAN EASILY HIDE JUST PISS ME OFF SO MUCH I NEED TO POST ABOUT HOW SPECIAL AND DIFFERENT I AM
>HOW DARE YOU HAVE FUN
How do we get rid of contrarians /v/?
please read my dissertation re: half a presses to be found in the post two above yours. that is the only correct answer, it comes from the man himself (and his tight knit a button challenge crew)
it has little to do with the state of the A button

I never knew those spiders were called Scuttlebugs.
Short ints are smaller and integer operations are faster. Mario's all-important physics needed the precision but collision detection against all those triangles probably needed the speed, possibly the space in memory as well.
this was answered in another video
essentially the further out you go, the less precise the conversion is from mario's actual coordinates (float) to his collision coords (short) is. so eventually mario's movement will become heavily restricted, as any move he tries to make will truncate incorrectly and the game will not allow it. this will eventually worsen to the point where you can't move at all once you arrive in a PU. after that, if you keep jumping PUs, you'll only be able to move to every other PU because of the in accurate truncating... then every third, then every fourth, so on
I WANT MONEY
