There's 3 ways to push the A button (0, 0.5 and 1) and there's 8 days in a week (Sun, M, Tu, W, Th, F, Sat, Sun)

Literally 99% of this is actually kinda interesting.


The 1% is the "half button press." gently caress that, gently caress him. It's stupid.

a button press counting system that accounts for both a single star run and a full game run seems pretty solid to me

only 25 seconds in the op video there is a perfect good explanation to what is a half-press, and I agree with his notation

my issue with the notation is that if he has divided a "press" into three parts, the push down, the hold, and the release, and all he used was the hold, isn't that 1/3 press? if you want to play semantics and say the act of pushing down is the same as a "press" and the 2nd and 3rd parts do not enter the picture then he did it in zero presses. i'm just not sure how you arrive at half.

the only way that would work is if he entered the level at the exact moment he pressed the button....... as it is he pressed down on the button and did half a hold outside the level, and inside the level he did half a hold and a release, combining into one full press, but only half of it occuring inside the level
