GUESS WHO'S AWESOME AND DISCOVERED A TALES OF SYMPHONIA SPEEDRUN SEQUENCE BREAK

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE



By complete accident on my last PB I realized that you could slide off one of the elevators with the dialogue prompt up. I was going fast so I didn't have time to experiment, but it seemed like an odd quirk that might be exploitable. Decided to sit down with it today, and found that you are able to diagonally slide off this elevator by doing so and squeeze into a passage you're not supposed to be able to access, saving about a minute and some change because you don't have to unlock the blue and red gates in order to proceed.

Skip happens at about the 30 second mark.

You may all bestow me with proper admiration. Thanks in advance

I think it's poetic that this was my absolute least favorite part of the game casually - I dreaded it every time for over a decade - and now I never have to do it again assuming this is consistent. :,)

That's pretty neat. You're going to end up on Summoning Salt's channel at this rate.

unfortunately for some reason [can't fathom really] most people don't care about a 6+ hour jrpg speedrun only 11 people have been obsessive enough to do (for gc ng+ anyway). :(

Yeah, speedrunning anything is kinda daunting imo, I can't imagine doing an RPG. That's more impressive to me, really.

I honestly feel this on a deeply personal level and hope you can get it to be consistent.

Not that this is relevant to anyone in the world who isn't me, since literally no one else speedruns this game anymore, but I got it to be consistent with a certain setup. It's quite possible that this is what pushes me to 2nd place if I get a run where everything else also goes well. :)

well i meant more that unlike finding something in OoT this currently impacts virtually nobody who isn't me LOL

although if you're like me and you hate this segment casually you could just use this and skip it. we think it might be GC exclusive because they patched how the initial slide works in later versions. no one's tested yet

edit: i should upload a clickbait tutorial on youtube.. "Tales of Symphonia HACK: SKIP the red and blue gates?????" and then only mention it's GC exclusive in the comments after i get the clicks
