i love how OoT speedruns are just 90% the opening cinematic now
I automatically skip to 4:20 when watching OoT runs
is that ZFG's stream playing in the background?
Yep, looks like he's doing one of the Guay hovers for Max Child%
Wow. And I thought sub 8 was going to be the last minute milestone. Crazy. The new setup is so fast, last I saw was running into the hut to trigger it.
Sigh, I'll say it this time...
This is amazing, this is the last minute milestone we'll ever see of OoT any%. Everything has been optimized and there is no way there's a faster strat
Wait until they somehow find file select corruption and they can warp to the credits in less than 1 minute.
How does one even figure out this pathing/glitch?
SRM was actually discovered many times independently over the years. Each time the understanding of the game's inner workings was a bit better, but it wasn't until GNS's late 2019 rediscovery that they knew enough to study how it worked and what can be done with it.

Has there been any big improvements lately, or is this just more optimized routing than previous WR's in the last, say, one year?
excellent thread from mrcheeze providing context for the road to sub 7
I thought that bonk in the beginning was gonna be the end of it but he still clutched the rest of it. Really impressive run.
Savestate's pronouns are they/them!
Savestate is a fitting name for this run
Savestate is also [an amazing melee link main](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce2wreyDunU). Basically made to get this run, what a god gamer
My next door neighbor growing up! Unreal achievement!
Haven't watched OOT Speedrun in a while(because like a fool I thought it couldn't get faster). They've skipped having to do the bug/jar thing in the great deku tree or even fight Gannon now? How??
Not an expert but people figure out how to rewrite parts of the memory by doing a very specific set of inputs. Basically by doing certain things you can instantly warp to the credits.
I haven’t seen an OoT speedrun since the record was 7:09, what’s changed?
Amazing run! That reaction when they realised their time was so wholesome, I love it! Congrats Savestate!
what are they playing on? looks too high res to be an OG N64, but the C buttons are there. GC or VC?
Virtual console using a GC controller with a splitter to take inputs. The Virtual Console versions don’t change a thing from the N64 version in terms of UI. It is incredibly good quality, they might have Wii HDMI mod installed, or are running high quality component cables through an upscaler like an OSSC or RetroTink. But that’s a guess on my part.
As a whole? Im not sure about that. Discovering ACE arguably so though
This category is so far beyond broken it's just a glitch exhibition and terribly terribly lame.
It is one of the less popular ones but minute changes in popular speed runs are hype no matter how the category is considered.
We have come a long way
