Speed Runs

Speed running (trying to complete a videogame in the fastest time possible) is almost as old as gaming itself. At least, it's almost as old as games that have a definite end point or staging points, since speedrunning a game with infinitely repeating levels is Sisyphean.

Speed run of Chrono Trigger in 34 segments completed on October 26 2005. Timing note: uses game timer at last seen moment in final part plus remaining real time until final damage on Lavos. Author's comments: This is by far my most polished run -- over a month in the making and numerous test runs and multiple strategies attempted, resulting in a final run that dips below the five hour mark. What will impress most people, I predict, will be the boss fights. Most of the bosses I take on are at...

Speed run of Super Mario Bros. done on October 9 2004. Available in normal and high quality. Author's comments: This is the cleanest, best looking SMB run I've done, although some levels can be finished slightly faster with better tactics so I estimate that I could do better by five to seven tenths overall. Easily the best part is in 8-3 with the Hammer Bros (I was very surprised I didn't die). Enjoy :)

Speed run of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil in 8 segments completed on March 31 2005. Author's comments: This is the longest and most frustrating FPS I've ever played...yet it turns out to be semi-speedrunable. This game suffers from a host of problems and is technically inferior to the first title, in my opinion. The slideshow framerates makes playing the game somewhat painful and can be headache inducing. Of course, this assumes you can get past the horrible controls that seem to lag behind your...

Single-segment speed run of Super Mario World, done on April 28 2004. Author's comments: It's far from perfect, and I have also learned some new time savers since I did this. This is still a pretty fast finish though, and it's much faster than any other video currently available to the public. I use a lot of nifty time savers that you may not know about so check this out!

Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player. This run takes everything you know about Sonic and Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages. It is worth noting that nitsuja and Upthorn did not directly participate in the creation of...

Single-segment proper 70-star speed run of Super Mario 64, done on June 24 2004. Author's comments: This is a traditional speed run of Super Mario 64. I collected the bare minimum of stars required to beat the game - 70 - WITHOUT ridiculous glitches that involve warping through doors. I use a variety of tricks and routes not used or known by the casual player to earn the world record. I would like to thank my best friend and partner in crime Cyberwrath (Brad Cutler) because without him I would...

Speed run of Resident Evil 4 on normal mode in 20 segments, completed on February 1 2005. Author's comments: Only IM me (at AIM-D4rkside X) or email me to ask questions if you're planning on doing a run and need help on something. I would like though, if people would IM me on ways to help improve this run, so that once my brother gets back with his GameCube, I can try another run to improve this time. OK, for this run, I just decided to get people off their asses and finally start speed running...

Speed run of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time completed on November 6, 2006 rejected for posting on Speed Demos Archive due to a boundary violation (going outside the map).

The purpose of a NBMB run in Super Metroid is to get as many items as possible after getting bombs, without ever fighting another boss or mini-boss. Although a lot items are easy to get, many require difficult tricks using glitches to achieve, such as items in Maridia and lower Norfair. Available in both mpeg4 and DivX versions. Author's comments: Hey. This is my No Boss/Mini Boss 72% run. 73% is the max, but the last item is dumb. Enjoy.

100% speed run of Super Metroid, completed on June 4 2004. Available in three versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60fps high quality. Author's comments: Hello. This is my 0:55 100% speed run for Super Metroid, played on the console. I am very pleased with this run, as it beats my old time of 1:00 as well as the previous record of 0:58. Lots of new stuff was done in my run; many things thought up by other players, some by myself. I'd like to thank several people who helped me during this...

Speed run of Half-Life's Hazard course in a Single segment, done on December 26 2004. Available as Divx 102x768 or 320x240 and original recording as .dem file, which requires version 1.1.2.0 of Half-Life to play. Author's comments: I'm pretty satisfied with this run, largest mistake being at the longjump over the large box, perhaps 3 seconds lost there.

Speed run of Super Mario 64, done on June 13 2005. Utilizes several glitches through doors to finish the game with only 16 stars, far short of the intended minimum of 70. Recorded on the European [PAL] version of the game, which runs at about 5/6 the speed of the NTSC version. Author's comments: The PAL version of SM64 is obviously slower than the NTSC version, therefor it's good to have separate records for these different systems. Some things is easier to perform on PAL though, like bowser...

After 4 days of non-stop gaming, i got a time that im happy with, but is certainly beatable. Sure, i made some mistakes, as i get hit a couple of times, but nothing thats really time consuming.

Speed run of Super Mario Bros. 2, done on August 4 2006. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: An imperfect run to be sure, though a significant improvement over Scott Kessler's previous effort. Judging from emulator research, I'd say that a sub-9 minute run is definitely possible. Thanks to my friend Jared Smith, who gave me the very idea to achieve this record.

Note : This speedthroughs were played on an emulator, using game slow-down options and many quicksaves. This time attack is not a contiguous performance, and is for entertainment purposes only.

But many times when I succeeded, I wanted to kill Zsnes cause its frequently crush zmv file. Thanks for telling, Webmaster, right now I know...
