So yesterday I talked about how I was interested in starting to speed run, and well today I had some time and so I gave it a shot. It took me quite a few tries to get going but eventually I cleared out Seiken Densetsu in 1:09:25. Then I did it again later, again in 1:09:25. I just did one more and got it in 1:06:57. My thumb is beat red and has not been this sore since I played Monster Hunter with a broken PSP.
It was really relaxing, though. That surprised me, but it really was a decent release of stress. I think I am going to go back to FF12 tomorrow so I can finish it before summer is over. But this little jump into speedrunning was pretty dang fun and I hope to improve my run over time.
Also, I am slowly adding more stuff to the splits application that I am working on. This really is the best way to learn lots of stuff. One problem I have with making software is that a lot of time there seems to be an "already been done" feeling but little things like this really do expand my skills
