Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror Forum  /  Janzen Glitch Category

I created the Janzen Glitch category as a sort of meme for myself. Since I play the emulated version of the game, which itself is based off the digital version, I have a very high chance of getting a run-ending softlock during the mission "Traitor In Our Midst." I call it Janzen Glitch. This glitch is only possible in the digital/emulated versions of the game. Which is what I play on. I'd originally quit running Any% because of this glitch killing so many of my runs. Since I'm now running Any% Easy again, I wanted a way to keep myself motivated. This way I'll always feel like I have an obtainable PB goal to work towards, and will feel more confident in my Any% attempts.

Sub 1hr is definitely possible now. With all the strats and skips we've found since my last Any% Easy PB, I know for sure I can do it. I'm not happy leaving a flawed and outdated run as my record. I want to push for as perfect a run as I can. I want to get that time as low as I can.

This glitch happened to me in a real PlayStation 2, while doong my Any% Hard... Never happen before that lol
I think that the glitch happens in story mode only, as never happened to me in ILs

Really?! I didn't think that was possible 🤔 I don't ever remember it happening on the PSP version. That's crazy.

I'm guessing the digital/emu versions just have an increased chance of it happening. Out off 100 runs, I'd say I lose about 55 of them to the Janzen Glitch. At least I'll have that PB to work towards, as well. But that sub 1 hr is gonna happen. I just need to refresh myself on my route, and do some ammo rerouting for the new strats I use. I do attempts until I die, then restart the run. That way I'm constantly practicing from the start. The prob is gonna be the last 3 episodes. I've played them the least of all the other episodes.
