The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Any% TAS in 15:54.91 (RTA Timing) by The Tas Master
Skip to 3:05 if you don't want to watch the intro.
It's finally here, the very first Ocarina of Time TAS done in under 16 minutes, which was thought for a long time to be impossible, but with the new way to do the Get-Item Manipulation Glitch, it was made possible.
Ever since my Go Home and Die% TAS, a couple people had asked me if I was going to make a new any% TAS for this game, the idea ran through my head for at least 2 years, and finally, I decided it had to be done. I probably wouldn't have done it at first because of all the RNG there was for GIM, but after the new method was found, that motivated me to complete this TAS.
If you haven't seen the Go Home and Die% TAS, you can watch it here:
This TAS is the result of about a month's worth of hard work on the game, originally, my set goal for this TAS was to get at least a rough 16:35, but 15 minutes and 54 seconds really exceeded my expectations, so I can proudly say that I am very happy with this result. 🙂
One thing to note about this TAS is that everything up to the Gohma fight was done by me. For the Gohma fight, I used inputs from MrGrunz and Bloobibla's Ocarina of Time TAS, the same thing was done for the Wrong Warp, everything else after that was done by me.
This TAS was made using a different emulator called Bizhawk, and because of this, I was able to make this TAS using one file.
Q: Why does the game look so weird, where's the distance fog, and what's up with the yellow light in the Temple of Time?
A: I had to use a different graphical plugin called the Rice video plugin for this TAS to make GIM work, if I had used any other plugin and tried to perform GIM, the emulator would crash, same reason for the light in the Temple of Time.
Q: Why did you climb back up to the top of the Deku Tree to the chest?
A: Once I got the Deku Nut with weird camera, I had to climb up to the chest containing the Dungeon Map, I then have to stand in front of it until the A button say open, the reason for this is because the Deku Nut and Dungeon Map have different item values, so when I stand in front of the chest, it overwrites the Deku Nut value and turns it into a bottle with a blue potion.
Q: Why did you do Mido skip the same way you did at the beginning, couldn't you just WESS past him?
A: A WESS only has a speed of 13-15, which isn't fast enough to clip past Mido, to clip past him, the speed of the WESS would have to be 18.
