Earthbound Any% Route

From RPG Speedruns
Jump to: navigation, search


This route was created by AndyPerfect and is the new route that was created in September of 2018 following the discovery of the Onett barrier skip and the cliff wiggles by Pirohiko. Additional credit goes to Aurilliux for creating the Cave of the Past and Giygas manipulation, 0xwas for creating the setup for the barrier glitch manipulation, and Arithium for some of the first zombie fight manipulation. If any lines have numbers in the format (x, y, z), these reference RNG values at that point in time. x is RNG1, y is RNG2, and z is RNG3. The page Earthbound RNG manipulation has more information on these values
