Author's comments and explanations:
This movie is a 5417 frames improvement over the published movie, this movie removed 3887 lag frames comparing to the precedent one, using the same route.
The lag removal is from using a more recent version of desmume, improvements also come from better movements patterns and luck manipulation (thx to gocha), also a much better end boss sequence
An attempt with alternate route suggested in the old movie can be found here
A release package is available for download, it contain all 3 movies, ram watch, and lua scripts
