I set out to improve my previous Maple Treeway TAS (1:20.404) by around 2 seconds, but holy crap did we knock that goal out of the park. I aimed to work on this TAS by myself, but many others in the TASing community began taking interest in this track. By the end, there were six of us working on it, and I think that this type of collaboration helped make the creation of this TAS a lot faster and made the TAS itself more optimal.
To learn about the optimizations and work that went into the run, see this Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1H...
Huge thank you to Sware for recording the run as well as editing the overlay display. On the left you can see an input display as well as our six names. Any time someone helped out with optimizing a certain section of the track, their name is shown, and when they were not able to help with a certain section, their name is grayed out. I forget who came up with this idea, but it makes it a lot easier to view the contributions of each collaborator. On the right you can see a SPEED display, which is a measure of our X and Z-axis speed, which is a more accurate display than the simple speedometer code. The XZ speed is calculated by sqrt((xpos-xprev)^2 + (zpos-zprev)^2).
Again, thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. I'm very glad to have helped create this run. I really enjoy how it turned out.
