Author's comments and explanations:
I just discovered a tactic's miss in the last boss battle.

And I improved it by farther distance for throwing items in advance to end up this movie 40 frames earlier.

I haven't improved the other stages,and I can't catch any miss,so I submit this one now.

DarkKobold: Judging.
DarkKobold: As noted here, by the original author of this movie, if the goal were to be changed to 'fastest end to input' then this submitted movie is sub-optimal. Thus, this improvement is not actually an improvement. Rejecting for a false improvement.

Secondly, while I'm not going to make any assumptions about the submitters intentions, I would like to say that if you are going to use someone's input, you should contact them first to discuss it, before just submitting the movie. Simply changing the final boss and resubmitting with your name on it, regardless of intentions, is questionable.

Finally, this is not the same situation as this submission. Copying input versus copying strategy are two very different entities. Moozooh's sadly ignored post does a perfect job of explaining this.
