This is a 4 frame improvement over my cancelled submission and is faster than the published run by 83 frames.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.5
  • Fastest time (or is it?)
  • Abuses glitches
  • Manipulates luck


Pretty much the entire run except stages 3 and 4 are the same as before. The improvements are all from stage 3. I could have saved 5 frames instead of 4 if not for those meddling bots and their pesky lag frame. =/

Other comments


I would like to thank klmz and the previous TASers of this game for their strategies that I plagerised used.
