This is my first TAS about Super C. It is 467 frames (7.78 seconds) faster than the previous published [2418] NES Super C (USA) "1 player" by Soig in 12:25.19. In Stage1-Stage7, 209 frames are saved come from details. In last Stage, a new glitch (splitting pause in game) help me avoid one death,then 196 frames are saved.Another 42 frames are saved owes to Mr_K's suggestion--using weapon F.And 20 frames are saved owes to faster walking.

Some useful ram adresses for Super C, you can look here. In this topic, Heidman proposed a idea how to skip the second tank. In this run, the second tank's ram(HP:0682,status:06F2) ,only 06F2 is 42 or 34 while you beat the tank, can you skip it. But it is a pity,you will lose more time if you do it. 070F is another useful count ram for crab in Stage 3. Routine count is 7-0, and you can change it in 5-0 if Bill near the crab.

Special Thanks

New updated run.
