so like if you wait the ENTIRE cinema before starting the level and mash really hard there is actually 1 frame available where you can give an input like pausing, z menu, and switching to hover nozzle.

maybe someone can take this and run with this and figure out a way to get into noki 3 without using cheats

i believe there is also one frame after the conversation with the man to input something because i switched to hover before the conversation and pressed r after the conversation and my controller rumbled sooo have fun with this everyone

I've done some work on this in Dolphin just now. The "magic frame", at least before the text, is this:

(I've tested it on both the PAL (25fps) and Japanese (30fps) versions, and the frame is identical in both, with no reason to assume NTSC-U would be any different.)

Because this frame is while Mario is still in the air, the only things that can be done as far as I know are pausing, switching the nozzle, and opening the map.

Has anyone managed to get an input in on the frame after the text?
