Hey! It's mostly speedruns here, though occasionally you'll catch streams focusing on TASing, tool development, or hardware hacking.

* No racist, homophobic, sexist, etc. remarks. * We're here to enjoy games and computers. Avoid topics which are going to cause issues. * Keep links pertinent to the topic at hand. * Swearing isn't going to bother me, but keep it toned down. Not everyone enjoys it. * Have fun, don't ruin others' fun.

**Are you playing on an emulator?** Typically, no. My consoles output via RGB which is sent along to an OSSC, from which I capture at 1080p60 via a Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus and output to a low-latency LCD. **How do you display game inputs?** I use a Teensy 3.2 embedded into my controller which snoops on the controller's communication with the console. This sends the communication to my broadcast PC over USB, at which point I read and generate the output seen. The code can be found at: * [Teensy](https://github.com/wuest/padpeek) * [Display](https://github.com/wuest/padpeek-utils) **Why is the start of your Wonder Boy runs so weird?** Thanks to the amazing work of the8bitbeast on the original WBIII, I was able to figure route reliable RNG manipulation into WR route for Any% Easy. * [the8bitbeast's TAS](http://tasvideos.org/5102S.html) * [RNG Manipulation explanation](https://youtu.be/k2iHeMd4Z08) **What other streamers should I check out?** [GrandPOOBear](https://twitch.tv/GrandPOOBear), [authorblues](https://twitch.tv/authorblues), [Skybilz](https://twitch.tv/Skybilz), [TieTuesday](https://www.twitch.tv/tietuesday), [Doc](https://www.twitch.tv/m_d_c_t), and [halfcoordinated](https://twitch.tv/halfcoordinated) are amazing streamers
