Another silly Mario movie
« on: May 15, 2006, 02:02:06 am »
Thanks for the help in the movie maker thread that let me put the soundtrack on this. :)

It's not a 3D animation this time, but rather a tool-assisted speedrun of the original Super Mario Bros I made two days ago. Well, not really a speedrun, as I didn't go for maximum speed (and played around with some enemies). But I made it to show that you can beat the game without touching any enemies, powerups and most importantly coins, which is incredibly hard in a few stages like 4-3, and impossible in 8-1 and 8-4 unless you're good at walljumping.

Rather than converting the whole run to AVI, which is mostly boring, I picked out some highlights. Note that this is tool-assisted - I used frame-by-frame advancement and save states during recording to do some inhuman things. The rerecord count was 1329. Sure, the walljumps in 8-1 and 8-3 are doable with practice, but skipping in between Goombas with shortjumps and dancing just outside the hitbox of a Hammer Brother is something you can't do in real-time. I was constantly one pixel from being hit - it didn't serve any purpose, just showing what can be technically done in this game. :P

The soundtrack is Bubble Bobble Hillbilly Rodeo remix by djpretzel. Please forgive me.

Hehe. :) This "run" was inspired by some of the crazy speedruns on this site. Note that all of these are tool-assisted, for "legit" speedruns go somewhere like here.

Chompy: I can't believe I forgot to do that. :P

Goodnight: Naw. Just tried out some savestate recording, but it's much more fun (and less frustrating) doing legit ones. Then again the only games I speedrun are the Metroids and Iji.
