Improved Box Names for Any% ACE

Post by entrpntr » Mon Aug 08, 2016 12:23 am

luckytyphlosion came up with some slightly improved code for the box names for the Gold Any% ACE. The code removes the need to name Box 7, resulting in a time save of roughly 5 seconds 9 seconds. The code is functionally equivalent to the previous version, so it doesn't reduce the likelihood of getting the glitch to work (which is calculated to be ~71% for the TID manip route), nor does it have any other harmful effects.

Dabomstew made a script to find box names that take the fewest amount of inputs. The following lists a couple options that tied for the fewest (NOTE: boxes 4, 5, 14 are the same in both options, and are unchanged from the previous version of box names):

Code: Select all

[OPTION 1 -  "Dabomstew"]

BOX 1     p 'v  , 'v  é  é 'v  2

BOX 2     p  é  D  9  é  d  2 'l
   *OR*   p  é  d  2 'l  é  D  9  

BOX 3     .  9 'l 'l  é  é  4  5
BOX 4     é  ?  2 'v  9  é  ♂  2
BOX 5    'v  8  é  é  4 'v 't 'l
BOX 6    'v  é  é  é  4  p 'd
BOX 14    A  A  A 'm  v  2            [note:  only required for F9xx/D9xx TIDs]

Code: Select all

[OPTION 2 -  "entrpntr"]

BOX 1     p 'v  , 'v  é  é 'm  2
BOX 2     p  .  9  é  d  2 'l 'l
BOX 3     é  é  4  5 'l  é  D  9
BOX 4     é  ?  2 'v  9  é  ♂  2
BOX 5    'v  8  é  é  4 'v 't 'l
BOX 6    'v  é  é  é  4  p 'd 'd      [note:  extra 'd is intentional, but unnecessary]
BOX 14    A  A  A 'm  v  2            [note:  only required for F9xx/D9xx TIDs]
If you're interested in finding other naming options that will work for the code, you can read this paste. The main note that is practical for runners to know is that you are free to tack on any characters to the end of box 6 + box 14 (and the first 3 characters in box 14 can be anything); there are a handful of "mistakes" you can make that don't actually need to be corrected.

If you are interested in understanding the source code, you can read Dabomstew's write-up on the wiki.
