Author's comments and explanations:
Edit: I found a big improvement, and saved 21 frames in 8-2, also changed some place. The new movie is arriving.
Edit2: I haven't found adelikat, but I have already sent him a message. See here if the movie didn't come:

This is the real Super Mario Bros 2. It was never officially released in the USA and Europe. It was later ported to SNES, and released as "Lost Levels" on Super Mario All-stars.

This movie is an 67 88 frames improvement over the published movie by klmz. It took me only 2 weeks to finish this one. The improvement comes from perfecting details, they're not as great as my "Moonwalk" action, but it's still a powerful movie.

This movie has few amazing improvements, but it does have solved 3 4 problems have never solved before:

So this movie does have meanings in some ways. To improve the entertainment in this movie, I did less annoying jumps, killed enemys in different ways, choised better ways to run. I didn't do the graphical glitch in 8-2 either, because I didn't want the level in my movie become a mess.

Improvements list

1-1 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch.
1-2 3 frames faster at the first solid wall, 1 frame was lost at entering the pipe for some reasons, 2 frames faster by better wall-entry and turning. 4 frame gained in this level.
4-1 6 frames faster by better mushroom-eating. Saved 21 frames.
4-2 1 frame faster by better flower-eating, 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch. 2 frames faster by better flower-eating. Because of the terrible randomness in this level, it will send out 3 fireworks if the last number of the time goes "5", so I wasted 9 frames before the flagpole to get a "4". I won't make it if I didn't get 2 frames by better flagpole glitch. This situation wasn't appeared in the movie of klmz, unfortunately, I got a bad randomness again in 8-2, it was totally a bad luck ;( I've found that it wasn't a bad randomness, thanks to Mr. Pwnage and Phil for reminding me of this one. So I changed the way to get coins in this level, lost 1 frame on flower-eating, it was worth it.
4-4 7 frames gained from a better way to kill Bowser. Saved 21 frames.
5-1 17 frames faster at the highest wall by using a walljump instead of walking through it, 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch. Saved 21 frames.
5-2 1 frame faster by better turning at the warp-zone.
8-1 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch.
8-2 2 6 frame gained from climbing the vine, 8 frames faster by using vine glitch (found by myself last year), and 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch. Saved 21 frames. because the bad randomness, I had to waste 4 frames climbing that vine, otherwise it would send out 6 fireworks.
8-3 1 frame faster at the balanced lift, 1 frame gained from a better flagpole glitch.
8-4 1 frame was saved at the first stage by better speeding up, 1 frame was saved at the water stage by better wall-passing, 1 frame was saved at the third stage by better speeding up, the final frame was saved at the forth stage also by better speeding up.


Thanks to klmz and phil for working hard on this one, also, thanks to SuperSunMario (Chinese) for helping me a little.

Hope you like the new movie!
