Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask TAS in 1:24:57 by MrGrunz
This tool-assisted speedrun by MrGrunz (me) aims to beat The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask in as little a time as possible by abusing several tricks and glitches.
I know you guys had to wait long for this (actually planned on finishing this in like early 2010), but here it is. good quality needs time, which apllies to the actual TAS and also to the encode. The TAS was finished over a month ago already, but I decided to wait for Aktan to encode this first before publishing it on youtube, so I could provide this very high quality encode. Huge thanks to him for doing such an amazing job.
It was made on an emulator, using frame-by-frame shooting, savestates, and rerecords to overcome things like reaction time and human error. As such, it is purely a form of entertainment, and is not designed to show skill.
The various tricks and glitches, such as the Fairy Fountain Wrong Warp Glitch and Bottle Duplication Glitch, have been described by me here: http://tasvideos.org/3194S.html
This TAS is the result of 2 years of hard work on the game. My goal was to get a time under 1 hour and 30 minutes. Although I discovered many new tricks while doing the run, I only barely subbed 1:30. Words can't describe how happy I am that I finally finished this project and I guess most people out there are very happy to see this run eventually done as well.
There's no way this run would've been possible without help from others, most notably, Slowking, who planned the whole route with me, had many great ideas behind a lot of the strategies I use, checked my WIPs and also motivated me all the time.
This run was made by me. It should not be uploaded without first getting permission from me.
Any anti-TAS comments will be deleted. Seriously, if you're just going to call it "cheating" or something equally ridiculous, don't even bother commenting at all. Save us both a bit of time.
