I've been wanting to get a TAS of TWW out, and I know you all want one. This may not be what you've been expecting :P

This is pretty much it. The Japanese version was used purely because of faster text, which imo is more important than being able to read it because the lower time is better when most, if not all, people aren't watching for the text during the intro.

The primary glitch in this is the superswim. Every frame link turns around in the water, his velocity gets higher, going backwards. My frame-by-frame chart of it can be seen here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmVhHgQ1lALLdC0zMVV5b1paU1lEM1JpOTZTQ1p6a1E.
