I'd like to see that Dean glitch, but looks like he didn't highlight it. There's a 3 hour plus gameplay on March 8th if someone wants to go find it and higlight it.


Hey Dave, I checked the video you've referenced, and have isolated the item of interest.

http://www.twitch.tv/up2ng/b/375012036

You should watch from 2:03:30 to 2:11:30 for the relevant portions of the session.

The glitch occurs on Level 1-1, after a restart.  Dean plays it back a couple of times, before archiving the INP file.  We then get a few more playbacks, some using frame advance mode, for a more detailed look.


EDIT:  Oops, I see that Jo already beat me to it.

The only odd thing I appear to see about that Dean glitch is score placement. He wasn't awarded points for the first part of the barrel jump because he was too close, what he was awarded was catching the back side of the barrel after coming off the wall....similar to if you double jump a barrel on the same girder, the second jump is points against the backside of the barrel. Also, once bouncing off the wall things are not completely normal. But, it is an odd thing I never saw.

EDIT: Actually, tried every which way I could to jump a barrel like that to recreate that and no dice...even tried releasing controls in the air and repressing when landing. Still jump normal 100 pts for the first jump. That is crazy.

It's interesting to see, but what might be telling is WHERE on the screen it happens.

That also just happens to be the spot where Jumpman can fall through the floor to clear the screen on the original ROMset.

I don't understand what caused that, but it might be related to what causes this.

This is exactly what I commented about on Dean's stream that night, Chris^ I don't remember if you were there or not, but it was all I could really come up with as some sort of connection that might be involved in the glitch's explanation.

I got a "snort snort snort" in the middle of a rivet screen today, which is weird because I haven't had it happen in well over a year. I thought I'd post it in case no one has had it happen to them...it starts when the score rolls to 13k.

Dean's glitch - http://www.twitch.tv/up2ng/b/375012036

Blargh.

Allow me to be the first to share in the collective blame for not highlighting this. The video is a-gone...

It's ok, Dean saved the INP (I made him!). Maybe he can play it again for you on another stream, then you can make your own highlight of it.  :)

Hey Ethan, I absolutely love the accompanying musical selection!

Is that "I'll Play the Blues for You", by Albert King?

If so, can you help me out with the particular version?  Is it the first track (7:17) from the album of the same name?

I've got to add this to my "bluesy" collection as soon as possible.

Great stuff.

Whoah.

I've seen him climb the short ladder, but never the middle one.

I think I deleted my old "Mario goes up" on the attract screen highlight. I know when he finishes with the hammer and is on a ladder, he'll go up. The furthest I think I've seen him get is to the 3rd girder and actually jump a barrel. One day he'll do it and have a clear run, because I'm curious what'll happen after that run to the right that usually drops him off the 2nd girder. It would be cool for someone to find the "stack" in the program that has all his programmed moves for the attract screen just to see how far they went with it.

Yeah, Chris, that is exactly why I had him highlight it! I hadn't ever seen him climb the middle ladder either.
