    So I was looking at tasvideos.org, like I do everyday, and I noticed this newest entry...

    I have to say that this RAM manipulation made my jaw drop.

    Look by yourself, and enjoy the show -- really cool stuff done here!
    There is no romhacking nor gamegenie cheats involved. Just a total memory control done with a very specific manipulation.

    This has been done with Super Mario World and Pokémon Yellow before.
    But what about a NES game? :D

    Enjoy!

    They showed this off today on the AGDQ stream! It's quite impressive, the all power-up Mario is actually fully playable.

    It was pretty exciting, they also used TAS to program in a Super Mario Maker-like function into Super Mario World. They let the Twitch chat take control at one point. Definitely check it out when the videos are uploaded to YouTube

    Impressive as it is, I remind myself that its a TAS. So I can only be impressed so much.
