More Specific comments

World 5

I choose tornado level to skip the hammer bros level. And it saves 461 frames for me. I shoot 2 stars instead of 1 star. It is faster every time. I have a better game randomness at world 5's final boss. Total improvement is 512 frames.

World 1

In 1-2, I choose another route to go through. It allows me to stay my speed. Saves 43 frames. In 1-3, I don't get injured. It saves 43 frames. And there are other small improvements in other levels. Total improvement is 78 frames.

World 7

In 7-3& 7-4, I shoot at the beginning of the level. To kill bomb-bomb faster. It saves 71 frames for me. In 7-shop, I buy one more music box to use it in world 4. It cost me 630 frames.

World 3

In 3-6, I get through floor. And I shoot the stars earlier to kill boss faster. It all saves 129 frames. I have other small improvements. And total improvement is 186 frames.

World 2

In 2-3, I don't get injured at the end. Saves 29 frames. In 2-5, I slide and get 62 speed. It saves 39 frames. World 2's total improvement is 72 frames.

World 6

There are fewer big improvements to say here. Total improvement is 54 frames.

World 4

I use a music box to skip two hammer levels. It saves 1561 frames. In 4-airship, I get into floor to go ahead the screen. Get into pipe earlier. I fly above the screen to grab the wand. It cut animation time. 1000 coin's glitch works here this time. These save 420 frames. Total improvement is 2053 frames.

World 8

In 8-5, I go out from the left directly. In 8-8, I get a better game randomness at the final boss. I avoid Bowser's big jump at the end. Total improvement is 329 frames.

Thanks To

Thanks to andymac. He told me some advice. And some is big improvement. Some is the improvement which I didn't found. And he encouraged me to finish this run.

Nach: Judging.
Soig: I correct some subtitles. And new fm2 can be downloaded here. Please editor replaces my old movie.
Nach: I replaced the submission file with the new one presented by the author above. The only difference is that the subtitle on 69034 is changed from "Ceiling bossting" to "Corner boosting".
Nach: Very nice improvement to an existing run. Accepting.
OmnipotentEntity: I should update this too, shouldn't I? Publishing.
