Please let me know if you watch it, if you like it, hate it, etc.

No, no hacking of the game is done.

http://tasvideos.org/WelcomeToTASVideos.html

In short, a recording of key-presses is done, and re-done in slow-slow-slow motion, to produce a set of key-presses that beats the game the fastest. Since monument placement is random, and key-presses affect randomness, I am able to manipulate many more monuments to appear than average, but not more than is possible inside the game.

Hope that helps.

I always enjoy your TAS videos DarkKobold. Nice work, I unfortunately don't know enough about Shining Soul to offer any advice on making it any faster, but I would like to see you finish it for sure.

Nice. I still haven't played Shining Soul I, but going by Shining Soul II, I imagine that must be a cool one to do a speed run through. I'll have to remember to check out that vid after I play SS1...
