[TAS] Mario Kart 64 - All Cups - 1P, GP, 150cc in 20:33.32, twitch.tv/weatherton 4K 60fps
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3243M.html
A run 7 years in making, this Mario Kart 64 TAS features weatherton completing all 4 Grand Prix Cups in under 21 minutes. Due to the nature of the game, knowledge of the internal code allows for heavy RNG manipulation, getting even the most unlikely items. This and the incredible movement precision are used to create crazy shortcuts, often completing laps in mere seconds.
The submission text contains highly detailed information about the strategies of every track, the RNG manipulation and a lot of other information about the run.

In-Game Time: 11'09.89
RTA Timing: 18'05.38
TAS Timing: 20'33.32
Note: TAS timing is from power-on through the last input required to initiate the credits and resets are not done until the gold trophy is actually saved. Real Time Attack (RTA) timing is from selecting Mushroom Cup through finishing Rainbow Road and resets are done immediately after finishing the fourth race. This results in a 2.5 minute difference in timing.
