***READ BEFORE WATCHING***
That is the author of the run's channel. Subscribe to it if you enjoy this run.
This tool-assisted speedrun aims to complete The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in as little time as possible, while getting every Spiritual Stone and Medallion, and completing every Trial in Ganon's Castle. The author does this by exploiting many tricks and glitches, which would not be seen in a modern any% run.
This run was made on an emulator, with slowdown, frame-by-frame shooting, savestates and rerecords. It is NOT meant to show skill, but rather the game pushed to its limits. It is only supposed to provide entertainment. You must bear this in mind when watching this video, or any TAS, for that matter.
A lot of effort was put into this run. It is the result of many long months of tedious testing and optimal playing, but it has certainly payed off. When commenting, consider the amount of effort and time it would take to make a run like this. It's not worthless because it wasn't done on a console. Tool-assisted speedruns are arguably more difficult to do well than real speedruns, due to how difficult it is to achieve perfection and still make it look entertaining.
Any anti-TAS comments (these include comments like "do it on a console, then I'll be impressed," "you suck for using an emulator," "cheater," etc) WILL be deleted on sight, and the poster will be permanently blocked from posting comments at any of my videos, or on my channel. I will not tolerate such a dispicable disregard for another person's determination and thoughtfulness for making a run like this. Please keep the discussion of TAS versus non-TAS to a minimum. Try to appreciate each category for what they are.
As for my own thoughts on the run, well, I won't go into much detail, but I will say that this is, without a doubt, my favourite TAS to date.
Bloobiebla has given me permission to upload this video. I'm honoured to have it on my channel. If you wish to upload it, you will need to get Bloobiebla's permission, not mine, but there really isn't much of a point in uploading it since it's already here. While no one is going to stop you from uploading it, it's pretty rude to upload someone else's work without their permission.
The actual page of the movie (along with the author's comments on his run) can be found here: http://tasvideos.org/2087S.html I STRONGLY advise reading this before watching.
Visit http://tasvideos.org/ for more information on tool-assisted speedruns, and to watch the many already-existing awesome TASes.
Enjoy the run. Positive comments will be relayed to Bloobiebla, and will either be responded to by him directly, or by me, on his behalf.
