Description

Played on mesentra 0.0.6 version of MESEN emulator, as encouraged by MarthSR. Evidence of this is provided at the end of this video.

I also used the included xBRZ 2x filter with Bilinear Interpolation to make the game look less pixelated, which I hope is fine.

Streamed to Twitch with Radeon Adrenalin software 23.9.3, also as revealed at the end.

Splits were input manually with love and care by Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld and a fan of sport of Mortal Dodgeball. (Hey bros, did you know that LiveSplit can play audio files?) My exact time may be better determined by pausing the video at appropriate times and looking at the frame counter, but that's for the moderators to decide.

As a final note, on a whim I decided to revisit this game today, since it was a game I played to death as a kid. I was surprised how easily it all came back to me after just a few rounds. Since I recalled beating it quickly and easily back around 1990, I was curious if I could get a fast time as the old geezer I am now. After a few tries I got a 11:10 minute run on Difficult, so I decided I might as well set up LiveSplit and go for a good spot on the leaderboard. Surprisingly, with some miraculously good fortune I was able to beat it in under 10 minutes on my second recorded attempt!

[Mod Note: Re-timed to 9:53.533. Run starts on the first movement of your characters and ends on the frame that the last piece of health leaves the opponent in Shadow. Great work!]
