I think this will be interesting for a lot of people. I won't spoil anything though.


Mystery Tournament 9 - NES Medley

Scenes from 20 games.

1: Un-rar the package.   http://www.mediafire.com/download/0ampivaigc5gt7n/fceux-2.2.2-MT9-V5.rar  (There is an old version that is less balanced floating around, please make sure you are using V5.  Also, do not mix and match emulators, saves, and scripts.  Use a full build downloaded.)
2: Open the stored FCEUX.  (It is a special FCEUX build with an additional lua hook to load roms.  This functionality was added in the new mainline FCEUX 2.2.3 version, but all testing has been done with this hacked build.)
3: Load an arbitrary ROM
4: Setup Controls: Config -> Input -> Configure Port 1.  Port 2 should be on <gamepad>, but no controls needed.
5: Load the lua script MysteryTournament9.lua.  File -> Lua -> New Lua Script Window -> Browse.  Press "Run"  Do not close this lua window ever.
6: Close the emulator via File->Exit to store all of this, just in case. 
7: Repeat steps 2-5. (This is only just in case it crashes, it saves your default paths and controls.)


You will be playing through short scenes from various games.  The lua script will automatically take you to the next scene as you complete each one.  The script takes away your start and select button, so don't bother trying to use them.  This is to make it abundantly clear that there is nothing to menu.

Each scene starts from a savestate, and ends when a completion condition is read from the game's memory.  If a death condition is detected, it will reload to the last checkpoint.  The start of every game is a checkpoint.  Certain games have checkpoints in the middle of them; the script will print "Checkpoint Reached" in the bottom right and give you your health back so you don't have to die.  If you die you now go back to that checkpoint.  A few games have "Partial Checkpoints", which means if you die, you will start further forward than originally, but not as far as you currently are.  You won't get health back at a "Partial Checkpoint"

In general, just get to the end of the scene by going in the most obvious direction.

You are ready to start when the game says ".ready" in the corner.  When the race starts, choose a robot master, with the "A" button, NOT START.  Pick your favorite robot master, they all last the same amount of time to the frame.  It affects a small easter egg.  It should be very evident when you are done.  Additionally, there is a final results screen after the ending screen.

Important Notes:

DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING COUPLE STATEMENTS UNLESS AN ISSUE OCCURS DURING THE RACE; IT WILL SPOIL THINGS: Hitting A + B + Start + Select on the center tile on the opening screen accesses the debug menu.  This lets you warp to a game.  If the emulator crashes, or the game crashes, or the script fails, use this to start back where you were.  If your keyboard has problems hitting 4 buttons at a time, you may need to bind controls differently to get here.

Intentionally Vague Hints:
- In a game with clouds, hold B to run.
- In a game with fireballs, you can use your sword as a shield to block fireballs.
- Exactly two games inherently require killing enemies.  It should be somewhat obvious which scenes those are.  Specifically: You have to kill a dragon in a moat with daggers.
- A couple games require wall jumping.
- No items are required.
- One scene requires you to stack multiple things to progress.  In this game, pick things up by not holding down, and then hitting B.
- Generically, the player is stuck on the script's assigned weapon for the most part, one scene lets you pick up different weapons if desired.

The second scene has been known to crash the whole emulator one single time by one tester when a block was thrown strangely.  If this happens, open the emulator back up and warp to the scene via the debug menu.

Expected completion time:
Mystery Tournament Top 8 Blind Players: 30-50 minutes.
Serious Blind Players: Under 2 hours.
Casual Blind Players: Up to 4 hours.

This is built to be difficult.  Good luck.

Some characters are too small or blurry to read. I have to guess.

Are these items common on the second hand market in Japan, and what is their typical value?

If you use the exp port instead it might be easier.
