I started to think about making a better route months ago linkmore link
In the end it wasnt a bad idea i guess, the main point is to avoid the library-colosseum-library trip, proceed directly to clock tower and inverted castle
To achieve this whe had to swap 2 relics, bat is traded for double jump, mist for fairy, extra gears was also acquired, a "trust" sword (allow to "fly" with wolf) and the masamune (high pwnage sword)
After countless mistake and problems, i decided to release this because im somewhat happy of the result
I believe this movie is improvable, but its already an improvement, need to start somewhere to make things move so i think its not a big deal to post it
In term of frames, i think maybe up to 300/400 (at the best and ideal conditions) can be saved if you feel enought nerdy to take upon that game
Those few frames to save are going to be nightmare tought, everybody (including me) is warned.
Sorry for small submision text, ill complete it later, time for some rest right now
