Well, 6 years later, I got bored of waiting, and decided to make the "version 4". It is a 175 frame improvement due to better precision and luck (kinda).

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.4a
  • Manipulates Luck
  • Takes heavy damage to save time lives
  • Fastest Time


This game is random. I tried to use Crissy, who, after some testing, has the exact same speed as Mark, but with worse luck. So I ended up using the same frame Phil used to start the game.

Some Tricks

Early Torch

Discovered by ???, it was used by Phil to obtain the Torch, one of the most damaging weapon in the game, to quickly rid the lake of Jason. I simply optimized it by 1 frame.

Jason Teleport

Not used in the run, but it works like this: After Jason flees to the left, quickly go right. He'll suddenly appear right in front of you for no reason.

Jason Cabin Manip

The room Jason appears in a cabin depend on the frame you enter it. The best room would be the one leading to a door.

Jason Scrolling

Sometimes, after Jason runs off, walking will scroll you backwards, which then Jason will attack again. Not used in the run.

Nach: I don't know, did you really beat this? Maybe the TAS is done wrong, because you tried being so fast. A slower route would mean a faster victory because Jason only gets stronger the more forceful you are. Kidding aside, nice improvement, accepting.
