I LIKE THAT (HALF) JUMP
he tries to complete courses in mario 64 with as few a presses as possible. for some he holds down a before entering the course and releases at some point during the course, so it's only half an a press.
every bit as autistic as it sounds
>dated for a week or however long
i dont think i've had a relationship that didnt start with fucking, how do people do this?
this isn't autism
it's called having a passion, being intrigued about how the game works
if ha was autistic he wouldn't be able to explain it properly in simple terms or make good replies in the comments
but hey, I guess all the people who made mario64 all have autism too right?
>You will never fuck Kaddykins
I watched a video of him responding to his autism with Caveman (or whatever he calls himself) and after admitting he has assburgers he also said he bought condoms for that AGDQ but never got to use them.
The heart wants what it wants, anon.
You ADHD fucks need to either put up or shut up.
I can honestly say that the only reason this video is big on /v/ is not because people are making fun of the dude, but because everyone is genuinely surprised by how in-depth he goes and because the 'wow' factor of jumping between parallel universes in a 20 year old game is pretty high, which fuels the 'Mario has the deepest lore' jokes this board has had for ages.
The video is worth watching twice. It's even better if you're a Computer Science student.
>you will never perfect scuttlebug raising
This. Speedrunning can be pretty autistic, but this video is just a really interesting in-depth explanation of multiple recently found glitches that just show in even more detail how the game works. If you think it's uninteresting enough to need a TL;DR, maybe you should take a break from /v/ today - clearly you've let memes take the wheel.
I only now realize that speedrunning is a real hobby or even passion that peope dedicate their lives to the same way that some others dedicate themselves to sports or the mastery of an instrument.
The implications of this are many, and none of them are comforting.
>not just enjoying the brief vidya-related funposting while it lasts and getting upset at a joke that's not even a full day old
There's really no other word to describe people like you other than big babies. Cry about it till it blows over, then cry about the next flavor of the week inside joke people come up with, ad infinitum.
Yeah, they found his nudes on Photobucket and then called his mom to tell her that he was sending them off to seventeen year old girls. His mom apologizes and then talks about how autistic he is. She even mentions his dark energy moon collar
So they just decide at a young age "well, I'm a useless fuck who's never going to be remembered for doing anything important, so I might as well just waste my life trying to play a game a few seconds faster"?
He cheated an extremely, extremely hard glitch jump and then just said that nonchalantly trying to fake happiness for succeeding in it. It was suspicious as fuck, as if someone really did that jump on the first try legitly, the reaction would certainly have been something more than just saying that with a plain face.
I feel bad for his mom a bit.
Ignore all these people.
Chibi didn't do anything wrong.
He did a frame-perfect jump, but since he didn't follow proper autistic rules in the process (as if speedrunning isn't already cheating), he's blacklisted from the "cool club".
Lesson of the life: Don't ever cross an autist. They will ruin your life for absolutely no reason.
CONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEM CONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEMCONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEMCONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEMCONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEMCONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEMCONDUCTOR WE HAVE A PROBLEM
Whatever. Why does it matter so long as he finishes the game quickly? These autists already allow others to abuse replicable glitches and bugs. There's not any fucking difference between exploiting some unintended behavior of a game to give yourself infinite money or whatever and just giving yourself infinite money with cheats. It's all cheating.
is there any benefit to ramping QPUs on a normal map or should I only use it when trying to do scuttlejumps?
is it possible to achieve an elevated QPU velocity without moving for 12 hours by using an advanced movement technique?
You need at least 12 hours of sinking speed in order to achieve QPU movement for a specific slope - different slopes have different sinking speeds. This is why you often need to go beyond 12 hours of sinking speeds to reach a higher-tier QPU in order to reach different levels of QPU for different slopes.
>he didn't hover his scuttle bug high enough to make the final qpu jump
The video was quite delightful to watch. The planning was meticulous, the solution ingenious, the explanations clear and kind... Then I've made the mistake of reading the comments, where all the intellectual bottom-feeders kept repeating the word "autism" to fool themselves into believing that intelligence is a bad thing. Such an effort just to avoid paying respect... Personally, I'm in awe. I'm glad there are still people like this in our world.
This picture contains material that might be offensive to some viewers.
Discretion is advised.
Is it time to uninstall /v/ for a little while? We have a really bad forced meme that can be triggered by something as simple as an image depicting Mario, the most famous video game character ever, on a board that's allegedly about video games.
Maybe I'll just come on for the Smash tournaments and hang out in XCOM 2 threads when the game drops.
> pretending that there is such a thing as a half press
No there isn't. Unless you were fucking born pressing that button, you pressed it down at some point. Even if you turned on the console while pressing the button, you did press it. So fuck you, bullshit discarded, entire video discarded because you are a fucking liar.
They think every board is filled with /b/ shitposters trying to ruin board culture.
How could it have been underrated if there hasn't been enough replies to warrant an overlooked joke? It was literally 3 replies. That's like pressing a button and calling it a half press.
admittedly the reasoning is sound
If you count pressing a button for something else, you shouldn't have to count it twice again just because its convenient for your argument.
He pressed the button in the overworld. So on the "dicked around in the overworld" category thats 1 press.
In the actual stage, however, he never pressed the button.
so to get that one particular star it did take him 12 hours, tons of fucking math, tool assisted precise inputs, and some "your mother must have vaccinated you as a baby" autism,
but it didnt take a single A Button Press
>your dreamgirl is an extremely generous 6/10 betahunter with a princess complex from attending GDQs filled with sexhungry beatvirgins
Why lower your standards so low? Have you actually given up?
Is this your 10/10 dreamgirl so you can justify fucking a pimpled landwhale because shes a 5/10 compared to this garbage?
Stand up for yourself man

He was doing a speedrun of Paper Mario and there's one part where you can trick the game into letting you double jump but it's really hard to do, so he just used GameShark to let him jump at any time and then pretended he got the trick legitimately. People found out and he pretty much got blacklisted from having his records honored in the speedrunning community.
Or something like that.
that autistic kid that went nuts just staring at livestock all day ended up using his mental disorder to help farmer
the autismo who holds down the A Button for 12 hours in super mario just ended up masturbating into a picture of princess peach
>He pressed the button in the overworld. So on the "dicked around in the overworld" category thats 1 press.
>In the actual stage, however, he never pressed the button.
Doesn't matter, does it? He still pressed the button at some point.
Look, if I am skilled enough to shoot a bullet straight up and have it catch a wind and travel around the world and land in exactly the place I want after exactly one month, it's still murder if someone gets hit by that bullet. It doesn't matter when you do something, it matters why you do it.
The only way I can see this as true is a production error in a controller that made it come from the factory with the A button depressed. And then you could use it once for a half press by unpressing it.
That's not exclusively what I've seen the term describe, but alright. Even then it merely mocks dedication to one's interests. There's also a peculiar set of norms that need to be involved for all of this to work; namely: society needs to outline what activities deserve attention and the prescribed amount it allows for them. As long as we are not dealing with an addiction that has ruined a person's life, I tend to be deeply suspicious of such approaches. There also seems to be a degree of hostility involved when it comes to the term. People don't call others "autists" purely descriptively most of the time. If we drilled into that, some insecurities could be discovered. Either way, as far as I'm concerned, this makes about as much sense as calling others "geeks" or "nerds" in desperate hope that it will be seen as an insult. I'd wear it like a goddamn badge of honor.
Sure thing """""""""""""""""Henry""""""""
Say he has to press A to enter a level, and he has to release the button at some point to complete the level.
Outside of the level, he PRESSES and HOLDS the button. Inside of the level, he HOLDS and RELEASES the button.
It's a half press to enter the level because he never stops holding, and it's a half press inside the level because he never begins holding.
At least, I think that's how his notation works.
Wait, he didn't even finish the level? He ran so fast while standing still that he teleported to another level that is the same level and finished that one instead?
Then how does he jump? Have to push that button down to jump. Simply letting go of a even if you pressed it during black screen won't trigger a jump motion. He pressed the button 1 full time as there is no such thing as a half press. Something about this doesn't seem right. I am accusing you of cheating. I will analyze this later and conclude with more information later.
I know of people who use r/4chan
They said they wanted to look at all the good parts of 4chan without wading through the shit. They think dicks are posted everywhere and the site is riddled with viruses
The "parallel universes" only have floor collision detection. A huge chunk of the vid explained that he had to return to the actual stage to interact with objects like the elevator and the star.

Personally I'm laughing my ass off at the OC and the butthurt it creates but I hate how self-concious /v/ became over the years
Not even a day and everyone is screaming "FORCED MEME" just because people are spamming threads
Get that word out of your head and just enjoy the fun
Game Genie or Action Replay. Moonjump code--allowed him to fake a frame perfect jump by holding L.
Unfortunately, the dude who discovered that jump, the guy who literally memorized the frame data for every possible jump scenario in TTYD, was watching.
I'm not sure if you're serious, but no.
Some of the tricks certainly are, but most of them rely on difficult tas only movements and wasted time for the point of fewer a presses.
>tfw you'll never have a scuttlebug jamboree because it doesn't exist on any pu
Anon, he's a computer science major trying to apply what he's learning and learned to his favorite video game.
Its not autism, its actually a really good way to apply and cement what you've been taught in your own time.
Contemporary /v/ hates any original content that's actually related to video games in a way that isn't negative
If you want to make video game related OC on /v/, it has to be about how x game is the BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY so that the redditors who came here after TOR can understand it

I fucking love you people.
>i-i-i-it's actually only a half press. here's my 25 minutes pseudo-intellectual autismal rant to prove so
stop shilling this fruitcake
>25 minutes pseudo-intellectual autismal rant
I can sum it up in a short sentence, since you apparently have no attention span to listen to a five minute quick explanation:
He presses A before he enters the map, which does not count towards the registered presses ON the map, and only ever releases it, and due to how SM64 registers a press (Pressing down on the button, holding it, and releasing it), it counts as less than one press, which is rounded down to half.
Oh shit, I'm late to this thread. I only watched a few of that guy's videos (0.5x, that one where he goes mach speed, and 255 coins). Those were very interesting. What other ones are good?
>nuh-uh no he didn't
literal autism. kill yourself
Anon, think of it from the point of view of the entire game.
Lets say you're getting two separate stars in the game. The first requires you to jump once, the other requires you to have A held but you don't need to jump.
You press A while getting the first star, then don't release A. Keep A held down all the way through the second level so you can do what's needed, and you'll only have done one A press for both stars. "Half an A press" refers to "I pressed the A button in an earlier level and can keep using that press in this one without raising my counter."
Does that make sense? Because that's pretty much exactly what he said at the start of the video.
It takes a special kind of autism to invent a concept like "half a press"
tl;dr version for fags who can't read:
>press A in an earlier level
>keep A held in this level
>only press A once in the long run instead of having to press A in both levels
It's a challenge to finish a level. It's as if you went through halo with only a pistol.
The point of the half press is to narrow down the difficulty of finishing the level. He could've done it easier with more than 1 press, but why?
>mfw tic toc clock
le addddddd XD
stop trying to defend yourself, faggot. you pressed A, stop making up your own autistic rules
This is has got to be a new form of bait. I've never seen so many people pissed at something so small.
And the use of the word "autism" so much, its like I'm back in the days when Chris Chan was all the rage.
thats actually very interesting
i have adhd but am otherwise pretty normal (or as normal as you could get on 4chan) but maybe i should start applying for some sweet disability grants
>if ha was autistic he wouldn't be able to explain it properly in simple terms or make good replies in the comments
he wasn't able to explain himself properly.
he proves he's wrong immediately by stating an A press starts with PRESSING A then goes on to describe the entire CLICK cycle as a press
You fucking idiot, learn to READ.
Let's say getting every star requires 5x A presses. It's discovered that you can beat one level that previously required one A press by holding down A from an earlier level.
By doing this, you bring it down to 4x A presses in context of the entire run.
This is why it's better than a full A press, in the context of a full playthrough it lets you go through the entire game with one less A press.
You dense motherfucker.
What franchise did Nintendo release over 200 titles of?
Mario has around 50 including crossover titles and racing games, over the span of about 30 years. About 1.5 games a year, roughly.
Nathan Drake appeared in 6 games in the span of 9 years including crossovers, so about 2 games a year.
>be bad at TAS
>make up meme category of non-existant half press
except that time is the only valid metric of skill in TAS
try again lil buddy, the big boys are waiting
no, uilililiilia was actually interesting and not a wannabe TASer who isn't skilled enough to TAS
>50 titles including shit like games where he just happened to appear in, otherwise it's around 30 at most
>In the span of 9 years and three consoles, already shit out 6 games where the selling point is NATHAN DRAKE
>it's ok to asspull random categories nobody on earth runs because i get blown the fuck out in natural categories like any%, 100%, etc
What, you mean it grew on a fucking tree? Did the good speedrunners of old harvest it by hand and deliver it to the ye olde market to sell it by the dozen? Was it cultivated by practiced hands for hundreds of years?
How could our GMO catagories compare?
I think it's fine. I like seeing how games work, some guy just thought about how to do something sort of neat based around how the game was built.
The 12 hour thing is pretty fucked, though
>in that context
>people are actually arguing about whether it was a full press or not
YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS UP. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
It's a needlessly long way of getting a star in the level. First he gets a Scuttlebug to basically fly so he can position it in a specific spot, then he goes to a ramp where he can build speed for 12 HOURS, then he uses that speed to go to what he referred to as PARALLEL UNIVERSES, resulting in him basically teleporting all over the place until he reaches said Scuttlebug, allowing him to jump on that and boost himself up to the platform the star is on. He did all that so he could beat the level in half a press of the A button in a game that's over 20 years old.
I know half of this board is retarded and the other half trolls, but how is this any less impressive than a normal TAS? I'd argue this is much more difficult and impressive than a normal one because it requires even more out of the box thinking to complete seemingly impossible challenges than a normal TAS.
>Godot couldn't see red
>"Henry" couldn't see half jumps
>tfw I thought this guy was autistic
>"let me tell you about parallel universes"
>now I'm more impressed than anything
It's been explained repeatedly in the thread what the difference is. You can continue using the press of an earlier level instead of pressing it within the level, meaning you can use one press over 2+ levels instead of one press in each, saving you a press in the long run. That is the difference.
You're only sperging out over the name, if he called it "Rolling Rocks With A held in an earlier level but never pressed within the level" you wouldn't sperg out the way you currently are.
Isn't seeing the creative ways to exploit a game at the most base level of its coding what TASes are about? How is arbitrary restrictions leading to new and creative ways of doing this a bad thing?

>come up with a shitty memetic autism post
>lololol guys I suck dick
You aren't even responding to the argument you retard.
The video is a demonstration. In a regular run of the game, he would have already had the button pressed from the last time he pushed it. Making it only half a press or simply just pushed it in again and not letting go of the button.
THIS GUY IS FUCKING MAKING US QUESTION THE BUTTON WE'VE BEEN PRESSING FOR DECADES AND IF WE'RE REALLY PUSHING IT
>discuss CS 101 concepts
>couch it in made up autismwords about mario

How do you "be bad" at TAS. It's literally all knowledge and planning. There's no skill or reflex involved. You can spend all day on a single frame if you want. The guy is a literal computer scientist. He's pretty much built for TAS.
shibbolethed the mad guy that other guy was caricaturing right here boys
yet he's a shitter at it and has to run made up categories instead of 120/70/0 star
not mad, just bored of the same sperging day in day out on 4chan
but "u mad XDD" is literally uncounterable, so you win this round!
extreme autism cringe in that video
>being autistic with a shitty emulator makes you good at computer science
There's a reason Name calling is at the bottom

M8, he had to have known about all that shit within the game to jump to this conclusion
Autism or not, he knows something about computers

This fucking meme has forced me to create a separate folder to save all the shit it's producing instead of just saving it all to my regular reaction images.
