Emulator used

FCE Ultra 0.98.16

General info

  • Aims for fastest time
  • Abuses programming errors
  • Uses warps

In this movie[1] there is a 181 frame improvement over the previous Mario run by Phil.


  • Stage 1-1, 4-1, 4-2, 4-3, 5-1, 8-1, 8-2 and 8-3[2] are all 21 frames faster due to the flagpole trick/glitch.
  • Stage 8-4 is more optimized and done 13 frames faster.

21 * 8 + 13 = 181.


[1] Despite of that the checksum of the rom with which this movie was recorded is different from the one of the rom with which most of the other SMB2j movies are recorded on this site, I guess this movie can be played with most of SMB2j ROMs. Why is there no GoodFDS existing?

[2] I almost didn't beat the 21 frame barrier in Stage 8-3. However I made it at last.

[3] I found a strange glitch in Stage 4-4 that I killed the "fake Bowser" on the bridge with only 4 fireballs.

NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. I'm not sure I got the right ROM though. (I'm not even sure which ROM I actually tried. Well, here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.
