In a speedrun I attempted recently of Paper Mario: TTYD, I failed Palace Skip for about two and a half hours before giving up for the day. The difficulty of the last part of this trick, the yoshi teleport, is pressing the B button and then pressing the X button exactly 36 frames later. This trick does not have the best of in-game visual or audio cues, so some runners rely on using a metronome to time their presses. I didn't like the online metronomes I could find, so I created my own using PICO 8, with the additional idea to combine video with the traditional audio.
I think this turned out to be nice and easily-customizeable, so I'm happy with it. It was fun to program anyway…also there's also a videogame-related secret/reference hiding somewhere. Try to find it without looking at the code ;)
Hold Z and X to view the instructions and controls.
