I'm just a bit worried that these TASes might get a bit old or samey so I'd like to give myself the option of scaling back or something. While I've just about routed enough of pretty much every track to know that they can all be beaten while facing backwards, most of the tricks that I pull off that end up being the really entertaining bits of the TAS are things that happen either by accident or are otherwise made up on the fly. With 30 tracks to go through, it can be a bit hard to consistantly come up with something interesting/unique, especially on some of the more...let's just say "limiting" tracks.
Anyways, here's Mighty Gazelle's TAS, finishing off the top row of F-Zero machines...Mute City 4 from the Expansion Kit:
With the second row of machines cleared, I figured now is a good time to...not so much put the backwards TASes on hold but more like have a bit of an intermission. Right now, I want to divert my focus towards discovering more about the glitch that allows for triggering AGG in mid-air. For those who haven't seen it: youtu.be/U8_qPPXhZcw I've made some decent-ish progress in that area but there's simply way too much I still don't know and that will almost certainly remain the case once I eventually present my findings, a fact that irks me a lot but I guess anything is better than nothing. Right now, I don't anticipate that this glitch will change the way we run the game in RTA or even in a TAS but you never know with these sorts of things...
I've also been meaning to get at least some normal/forwards-facing TASes out of the way as well. Most notably, I want to try and make at least one Silence 3 TAS with a Custom Machine. I have other TASes in mind but nothing's guarenteed atm.
No ETAs on any of this. Things'll happen when they happen...and when I actually feel like making things happen
Oh and time attacking/WRing on console. I'd like to do a bit more of that as well now that I have a capture device ^^ ...oh and since leaderboads were made for X Climax, I thought I might at least look into that too and...um... uh... ...maybe this will be way too long for a mere intermission now that I think about it
