Super Mario 64
Super Mario 64 is a joke language where the code is represented by a `.m64` tas file (and maybe a saves
When certain things happen in the game, certain things happen in this programming language's memory.
This is separate from the game's memory - and shared across the game's savefiles
You have 8 MB to use, and 2 pointers. (I have no idea what I'm saying)
At the start the two pointers are read and write pointers respectively, and the "main" pointer is the read pointer.
The pointers start at the first bit.
If a pointer is at the first bit and moves left, it ends up at the last bit. So it loops around. Same thing with going right.
Steps that read/write bits automatically move the reading/writing pointer to the bit after the last bit of the read/write.
For each frame, the following
When conditions are checked in order.
If a condition is true, the corresponding
Do is done
|The L button is pressed||Move the main pointer 1 bit to the right|
|The R button is pressed||Move the main pointer 1 bit to the left|
|Mario is ground pounding||Switch which pointer the main pointer is|
|Mario is in the freefall state and the rng index is a multiple of 1024||Switch which type of pointer the main pointer is|
|Mario collects a coin||Toggle the bit at the main pointer without affecting the main pointer|
|A star is collected on a save that has pressed A||Doubles the memory|
|A new savefile is started||Sets every bit of memory to 0.|
If the memory is already empty, it cuts the amount of memory in half. The memory is gone forever.
|The product of mario's x, y, and z position is more than 1 billion||If one pointer is a read pointer, and the other pointer is a write pointer, then:
|A star is collected on a save that hasn't pressed A||If both pointers are read pointers, then:
|The amount of lives mario has changes (like a 1-up)||Do the previous action again|
|A whole day (= 24 hours) (in game time) passes||Toggle every bit, then if the main pointer is a read pointer, output the bit at the main pointer.|
|The rng is 0||If both pointers are read pointers, XOR the bits of both pointers, turn the main pointer into a write pointer, move the main pointer 1 to the left, write the result of the XOR, and finally turn the main pointer back into a read pointer.|
|The game crashes||Crash|
This is probably an extremely difficult language to program (and achieve stuff) in. Although I wonder what normal TASes
There's only two ways to output anything, and they're both non-trivial to do.
And unless you want to run your program manually, you'll have to invent a sm64 interpreter.
Although, technically, this language might be turing complete. Its
do functions say it has all the necessary functionality: "infinite" memory, "if", and "increment" / "decrement". I have no idea how you would make a quine or something.
This language could be made much more useful with the use of the joystick. If anyone tries this, feel free to edit this and add more controls.
