NESBot TASes Super Mario Bros.

The idea behind a Tool Assisted Speedrun is to use save states, rerecords, and frame-by-frame advance to create a file that contains a series of recorded button presses that in theory can be played back on the actual console for which they are intended.

Well, TASing just became less theoretical, with the first ever "machine verified" TAS.
Using an Arduino prototype board, a robot was built that plays back an input file on a real NES. The result?

Re: NESBot TASes Super Mario Bros.

That was something else. I wonder what kind of input files it takes.

I had never seen a speed run of that game before. Didn't know you could wall jump in that game.

You are not supposed to be able to, but if you happen to hit it pixel perfect it is possible.

Yeah, it was pretty entertaining. I never thought it possible to get through that game so fast.

The why the game is so amazing, and still holds up today, the gameplay on it is through the roof.

Super Mario Bros. 2

The creator has set up a Youtube playlist dedicated to NES playbacks. Link!
Also, there is a new list on TASvideos.org with a list of console-verified TASes. Link!
So instead I'll just post the more interesting ones I see instead of all of them.

It requires way more time than I'm willing to invest. Some of the projects take months or ever years to complete.

The upside is when you finish it, it's pretty awesome to watch. For me at least. I know some people call out TASes for being fake, claiming they can't be done on a real console. Or that they can't be compared to a real time run, which is silly because they're not, they are created for entertainment purposes only.

Ok, I better stop ranting. Here's Mario dry humping the flagpole instead, and more.
