Author's comments and explanations:
Dark Castle frame war ensue!

This is the 11 frames faster Dark Castle TAS that has been available for a long time.

These are the unnoticeable improvements:

  • 1 frame was saved in the intro/hub room.
  • 10 frames were saved with a better ladder grab technique, which was pointed out by Stanski.

These things...

  • Plays at hardest level
  • Aims for fastest (input) time
  • Abuses programming errors in the game
  • Genre: Platform

The Dark Black Knight says:

Nobody can improve this TAS, not even you! Hahaha!

mmbossman: I'm first, it seems. Accepting as an improvement to the published movie.

ShinyDoofy: Will process, but delay publication for now.
