In other words, play the game once and it'll always be played back the same way.

But you explained it a lot better!

2+ months! That's a lot of dedication - but it shows in the final result

It would've taken much longer if I was busy. I basically had 2 and a half months free or so that I used to TAS TR4. So basically I worked on it full time. (I did take a 1 week break in the middle of Underneath the Sphinx).


By the way, if anyone's wondering if you could replay the TAS live in front of you in an emulator, you can. You'll have to use Bizhawk, the same BIOS I used (written in the author notes in the link in the OP), the correct game version and my movie file. You just load the game and "play movie", and you're done.

Just a small update, the TAS was accepted in TASVideos, and a 4K encode of it will be made (hopefully soon) by a site publisher. I will post the video here when it's out

I didn't realise that you were also doing a TAS for TR4. I really need to check these out, although I should probably start with your speedruns for TR1.

I've seen your speedruns for TR1, TR2 and TR3 but I still need to check out your speedruns for Last Revelation and Chronicles.
