[TAS] GBC Pokémon: Yellow Version "arbitrary code execution" by MrWint in 05:48.28
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3358M.html. TAS originally published on 2017-04-01.
The current Pokémon: Yellow Version speed record (http://tasvideos.org/1860M.html) uses heavy glitches that allow the player to catalog every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? Yes! In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrar...) which greatly expands the game and shows off cool stuff from elsewhere too. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments (http://tasvideos.org/5384S.html).
This movie improves upon the predecessor (http://tasvideos.org/2341M.html) by using a payload (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payload...) which builds upon the environment in the game highlighting new areas, new Pokémon, and shows off a lot more that can be done with arbitrary code execution than displaying the digits of Pi and some minor animation. For more runs that involve arbitrary code execution, see our published list of movies which execute arbitrary code (http://tasvideos.org/Movies-C3050Y.html) as well as discussion in our forum (http://tasvideos.org/forum/p/345831#3...).
