TR1 Tool Assisted Speedrun
 
Hello everyone :D


I've been working on a glitched TAS of Tomb Raider 1, for those who don't know, "Tool Assisted" means a sequence of inputs designed by the author of the TAS (in this case, me) to complete a game as fast as possible, usually created by playing in a rerecording emulator with tools such as frame advance, slowdowns, savestates, and memory watch.

In other words, it's playing the game in a special emulator with special tools such as frame advance and savestates and watching memory values (such as speed and position etc..) to achieve perfect gameplay.

There's already a TR1 TAS that was made by Lapogne36 and is the current publication on TASvideos, but new strats and timesavers were found since then, making it outdated.

Some technical details:

Quote:

Movement speed:
Running: 47
Standing jumps: 50
Rolling: 50 (gets gradually lower and the end of the animation untill it reaches 0 when the animation is finished)
Swimming: 50
Sliding on slopes: 50
Running jump: 75

As you can see, the running jump is by far the fastest way to move, to the point where it is often better to take a seemingly non-optimal trajectory in order to make one more jump instead of running.

Weapons:
Pistols damage: 1 (per gun)
Shotgun damage: ~18 (depends on range)
Magnums damage: 2 (per gun)
Uzis damage: 1 (per gun)
taken from Lapogne36's Tomb Raider 1 TASvideos submission

Currently I'm finishing up the Lost Valley!

Here's the progress so far:

Lost Valley


Tomb of Qualopec

Peru area done!

St. Francis' Folly

oh god these lions at the end took way too much time

Colosseum


Palace Midas


The Cistern


Tomb of Tihocan


City of Khamoon

Thank you :D, Not at the moment, No. Though as far as I know, PCem is able to emulate them. but I don't know if TAS tools will be implemented anytime soon.

Now, as promised, Lost Valley is ready!

Hope you enjoy :D

Really great work. :tmb: It always amazes me how glitched speedrunners can find all these hidden nooks and crannies to achieve these amazing times.

BlackWolftr 09-07-19 06:42

This is probably the global tas record. It surprises me that speedruners always find some new bugs, ways, etc. But once again congratulations.:jmp:

Woops 09-07-19 10:30

Thank you both :hug:
Qualopec should be ready by tomorrow night, or maybe the morning after, depends on how Larson behaves!
