Item Abuse TAS
11/25/10 edit - Happy Thanksgiving (to those that celebrate it)! As a little treat, I spent some time re-timing the annotations and implementing pause annotations again! Nearly anytime an annotation shows up, the video will pause for a full minute, so most people should be able to read all the annotations now.
Viddler mirror here. It has the original music, but no annotations, so take your pick.
Oh, and before people start asking, the audioswapped song is "Speak to Angels" by 009 Sound System. It was changed because somebody thought it was funny to flag this video for copyright infringement, and it muted the audio. Eh.
TASes are recordings of games "formed by constructing an input file slowly over time using an emulator as a tool to overcome human limitations such as skill and reflex, then playing the file back to give the impression that the game is played extraordinarily" (from TASVideos.org). Tools such as savestates, frame-advance (not used in this TAS), and slowdown are used extensively to produce superhuman play. Not the most fun thing to make, let me tell you (especially with ZSNES.)
If you wish to request a game for me to TAS, read my channel page description first for the "rules."
Hack created and requested by penangbenny
Don't mind the HUD difference after the non-scrolling castle and after the yellow switch-palace type area; penangbenny forgot to add those rooms in until after I was done with what he had already given me, and I was not about to re-do everything. Also, even though it says it's version 1.3, there is no big difference in the actual level (really, the main difference is that 1.7 has one or two different backgrounds, and a few more spike-walls to not allow some walljumps I made in the TAS.)
By the way, the TAS was made using ZSNES since it was back when snes9x didn't agree with my computer for some reason (it took until April 2010 to get the thing to agree with me.)
A few words from the hack creator, if you want to read them:
"This H***hole is made by me, Penangbenny.
This ROMhack was inspired by MoltovMarioWorld's Pit of Despair
This ROMhack level was mostly made to show Super Mario World pushed to its absolute limits requiring just basically every single glitch in the game and BEYOND. I have also made a TAS of my own H***hole, and will post it probably in May.
If you are insane enough to play it, the link is below:
Woot, my first honors.

I like these comments so much, I feel the need to quote them in the description.

0mn2: "I remember one part in Super Mario World where you had to fly under the goal posts in order to get to one of the secret levels. That, in itself, took aeons for me to do because it basically required you to fly through a whole level of saws and other hazardous Miyamoto insanity.
When I saw the cape flying present in this video, I cried. I cried blood. And that's just the cape flying.
You are proof that evolution is no longer a theory, but a law. "
