Today marks the ninth anniversary since I have created this channel!
After nearly three long months, the Um Jammer Lammy TAS is finally here!
Using Bizhawk and a handy LUA script that shows me gains and losses and timed/mistimed inputs, I attempt to beat the game in the fastest time possible by keeping my score at or below 200 in each stage except the last one and completing all stages in Cool mode while meeting or exceeding standard levels of entertainment as shown in other TAS videos.
Each stage will contain some sort of variety or theme (mostly abusing the score system) and here's a list of all of them:
Stage 1: Placing buttons before Lammy's turn which makes me either lose or gain points
Stage 2: Gaining and losing points until hitting exactly 200 points at the end
Stage 3: Losing the most points in one stage (I lost 731 points on the second line!)
Stage 4: Same as stage 2, making sure I hit exactly 200 points when I reach Cool mode
Stage 5: Making cool guitar riffs while earning little to no points
Stage 6: Using as few backbeats as possible and going from Awful to Cool while staying below the 200 point threshold
Stage 7: Score attack (gaining as many points as possible)
Notes for this stage: In this stage, I show you the highest amount of points possible in Cool mode without the use of Fever Mode, which is 264 (starting at around 20:40). The run ends at 21:43, in which no further button inputs are made in the movie.
There are no plans for another PaRappa the Rapper TAS at this time.
The run begins at console startup and ends at the last input.
