Author's comments and explanations:
North and South is a game released for the NES based off the Civil War. You can fight battles, go on trains, capture forts, and destroy the Union or Confederate armies in this exciting game!

This is a 37 frame (0.62 second) improvement over the current published run of the same game, due to my realization that you could turn a player into a computer by clicking their image, which is about 35 frames faster. Two more frames were saved through slightly better map navigation.

(Note to encoders: Set your emulator to pause at frame 6500, which shows the TAS, and a couple seconds of the ending screen.)

(Note to people who simply don't want to download FCEUX, the North and South NES ROM, and the movie file: An encode is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZL5HcNN83M .)

JWinslow23: I will now cancel this submission due to MESHUGGAH's run being faster.
