If you don't know the game, feel free to read the previous submission's text.

Using a lua script to show the lag frames in TASEditor for the game and movement speeds and position values, I could improve my earlier movie. Performing more double grabbing the edges of the walls when it saves time and optimizing the best positions for different situations and taking care of lag frames yields in a 0.31 (19 frames if you are lazy to hover over the value) faster Superb Joe mode TAS completion.

(Link to video)

If anyone curious: first improvement comes from double grabbing at the end of 5th screen, making the consequence scenes 1-3 frames faster and improving the last laggy screen greatly (filled with clowns).

Note: this TAS uses the same release as it can be found on the porters homepage, http://www.fauxgame.com. There's a newer version where's the only difference is an added multicart engine so you would need to select this game from a menu system.

Thanks to feos and Ilari for helping with the lua script. See you until my next TAS =)
