Mukki: Judging...

Mukki: I think that this category has potential and I can imagine a good TAS of this being accepted. Unfortunately, this particular submission has attracted some criticism as to its level of optimisation. The audience has pointed out many spots throughout the run that could be improved. I decided to investigate this myself and casually TASed level 1-1. Without any real effort I was able to improve it by ~40 frames which is a huge amount for 30 seconds of a game like SMB. This is purely from optimisation of the same route. Even if the route remained the same I imagine that this could be improved a good deal more. The .vbm is below, if you decide to redo this submission I suggest that you compare with this (I overwrote your submission which is why the rerecord count is so high). You should also study the optimisation tricks used in the NES run (such as use of left/right) as I found them to be somewhat applicable here.

http://dehacked.2y.net/microstorage.php/info/1377186201/Super%20Mario%20Bros.%20Deluxe.%20gbc%20-%20Copy.vbm

I am rejecting this run on the grounds of poor optimisation.
