Author's comments and explanations:

I made a warp version since the game is pretty linear and a short movie would be better for it.

Sami made a movie without warps of Adventure Island 2. I had already TASed a few levels, so I saw his movie could be improved. I kinda promised I would make/finish this movie so here it is. I use warps at the levels 1, 3 and 5... so I can't really compare those levels with Sami. Levels 2, 4 6, 7 and 8 are exactly the same, so these can be compared with Sami's run.

The total time saved in these levels is 3461 frames, which is almost a minute. I saved frames in nearly ever stage with better accuracy and lesser lag. I saved lots of seconds on each boss fight. I saved a lot by climbing the vertical levels, instead of flying up. I saved a lot by changing the route at level 8.

adelikat: Setting this to delayed in hopes for some more response. I am suprised at the lack of votes. Sami's previous run got more voters/comments than this improved version. Why the lack interest?


adelikat: Good response, accepting for publication.
