Damn, I wanted to post this.

It really is amazing. None of us will ever play a game that well. It's art.

do you think he has all the timing and placement memorized or he's just so damn good at moving around.

I think he's just practised a lot. He's probably drilled himself to the point that it has become instinctual.

Wow, I don't think I could finish that game in an hour, even with the use of both whistles.

It's not just the speed that's impressive, but the execution. When he starts bouncing off cannonballs... 1UP 1UP 1UP 1UP 1UP 1UP ART.

In the midst of downloading it now. Better be good, I interrupted my porn downloads for this.

It's better than porn. It's inspiring.

I understand Tingram's pretty good at SSB Melee.


Despite playing them all the time, I'm horrible at most games (save for Minesweeper, Solitaire, Freecell, Spider Solitaire, etc...).

Hey that really is fast. He should have practiced more than enough for this.

I remember when I used to play DMC, but no this fast and accurate.

Well I'll try at least.

Yes, he won quite a bit of money playing SSBM, perhaps that is Tingram. :o

Wait, why did I think Smb was SSBM? Oh well, it can&#39;t be Tingram anyway, unless he decided to buy a Japanese version of the game for some reason and play it on a Famicom.

Yeah.


Anyone got links to similar retro game videos?

My hunt for retro videos died after Mame&#39;s replay feature.

I was thinking last night about altering some open source emulators to enable you to record your movements as a sort of script (small file size) and then upload it to a website I&#39;d make, like for game records and high score competitions etc.

It would rule, but I can&#39;t be arsed.

Kawaks, Mame have the funcion.

I&#39;ve been taking part in the Mame&#39;s Action Replay Tournaments too. Won High score for Tumble Pop.

I&#39;m definitely not doing it now that MHAQS has told me that it&#39;s already been done :)

My grip on reality and acceptance of the world as it is today depends on the sole premise that this guy has used an emulator, save states and a screen capture sw/recorder to put together this video.

That is a possibility.

I just didn&#39;t want to spoil the magic. I&#39;d rather believe in this one.

That&#39;s what I thought, too. But then I noticed that there seemed to be some discoloration in certain spots that is consistent with what you&#39;d expect to see on an older console playing through, say, a VCR or such.

Jet Set Willy

I didn&#39;t notice any VCR artifacts, I assumed it was just the WMV encoding making all of the poo. I might watch it again, more suspiciously next time.

El Fugitivo
December 3rd, 2003, 19:47
I considered that, but I still think it was played through a VCR. Hard to tell with the relatively poor quality. Still, even if it was through an emulator, all cut up, each of the levels seem to be whole sessions. That&#39;s impressive enough in it&#39;s own right.

Jet Set Willy

Yeah, even if it was cut up it would be impressive, as making the cannonball bits seem seamless is just as hard as actually performing it for real.
