TAS using BizHawk emulator for Uzebox

Post by Artcfox » Thu Sep 14, 2017 9:00 am

I'm starting to see Tool Assisted Speedruns (TAS) for Uzebox games appear on YouTube, and I was very curious which emulator they are using to do those, because no Uzebox emulators that I know of can save/restore the state.



It seems that someone ported Uzem into the BizHawk emulator, according to this page about that speed run.

That same person also did a TAS for Joyrider:



and the info for that TAS is here.

It includes Uzem:

They also seem to have found and fixed the controller problem in it which I also fixed in CUzeBox a while ago, that it acts on the wrong edge.

That's pretty crazy.

BizHawk is using WaterboxCore, which looks to be some sort of wrapper for executables that can capture the entire state, and rewind it, but it looks like it may require source code modifications to the exectuable, which it looks like they've done.
