QFG finished in 42 seconds

For a better idea of what's happening in the game, here's my full Any% RTA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvQB4vFFPTY

Or better yet, play through the games. :D

Re: Quick Money?

But where's the fun in winning the game so quickly and avoid the regular stuff you get to do, while spending hours instead of just 20 minutes? ;) Oh, sweet, sweet Elsa... Always so worried about preserving the story. :) I have no intention of spending 20 minutes. I'm going to make the game go much,...

Re: Quick Money?

I need 50 centime after barter with the map seller to get the map. I can get everything else to beat the game completely for free. I did a trial run as a test, and with one "sell beard," 150 gold and 14 dinari and 50 centime remaining, I killed Ad Avis - 20 minutes on first try. Lamp for 0 if you "t...

Quick Money?

Is there a faster way to get 50 centime (or a free map) than the "sell beard" glitch?

Re: Minotaur is optional now

I actually can't believe that glitch isn't tighter. As far as glitches go, it's pretty forgiving on mistakes. I'm excited by this one, because it means for my 100% Thief run I am working on I no longer need Magic, in theory. :)

Re: Skipping the Minotaur

Wait until I post the tool-assisted video. It clocks it at 44.5 seconds, I believe. We also found out that this is not just a dagger trick; you can cast Open and the same thing happens. Casting Open only works on the EGA version, though. Elsa just stabs you in the VGA when you try to cast anything.

Skipping the Minotaur

Thanks to the science that is speedrunning, Minotaurs are now a thing of the past in both the EGA and VGA version. No killing or casting required; just good old fashioned abuse of unintended sequencing. There are two ways to make it past the Minotaur optional. Both require the Open spell, so cast th...

Minotaur is optional now

The tool-assisted speedrun community discovered the Minotaur in the EGA version can be completely skipped just by going quickly past him with specific movements, thereby making Calm a suggestion and not a necessity to get past the Minotaur with low stats. That was exciting enough to find, so I went ...
