TAS Code [Vega]

TAS Code [Vega]

This works for ALL controllers!

TAS Code (Tool Assisted Speed Run) is simply the Live Replay code with the ability to activate or deactivate at any time. A good code to have for Dolphin TASers. For more information about Live Replay, visit the Live Replay Code Thread - HERE.

This code has configured the activator and dectivator to be part of the Assembly Code. Thus, this allows the code to also work in Dolphin without any tweaking needed in Dolphin settings/config.

XXXX = Controller Address
ZZZZ = Button To Press to Activate Live Replay
zzzz = Button To Press to Deactivate Live Replay

Go to this thread HERE for a list of XXXX/ZZZZ values.

Important Note: This code makes use of memory address 0x8000164E. Make sure no other codes in your GCT File or Cheat Manager are using that memory address!

Just tried this on Dolphin with a real wii remote and noticed that the activator and deactivator must be different buttons. It won't deactivate otherwise.

Ye, that's due to the way I wrote the source. I made the TAS code in this way so it can work on archaic versions of Dolphin. Anyway here's a much simpler version of the code...

Wait, does this have a set of TASes pre-loaded?

No, the term "TAS Code" is just the most known name/alias of this code. It is simply just a Live Replay code with button activator & deactivator. The code is written with built in activators (instead of using standard gecko code types) to ensure it would work with archaic stable versions of Dolphin.

Regardless, this code is super outdated and I'm surprised I forgot to move it to the outdated subforum ages ago. You should be able to use Loaf's Advanced Live Replay equipped with typical button activators and deactivators to make a "TAS Code".
