About the run

This is an improvement Version of My TAS. 2341frame was improved.

Doubly Powerup glitch

When set to HP0 of manticore, it will reappear, if it attacks simultaneously to a tail and the body. However, the error of not 1frame is allowed. hijiki found this glitch->http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm23120234.


It improved using Doubly Powerup glitch.Graham battle was improved by this.In connection with this, route change is needed.It is only this route change part and Graham Battle that were changed this time, and the other part has not changed.


It is the same as what cpadolf is using.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Replaced submission with a 12-frame improvement.

Mothrayas: Good improvement. The new tricks make a nice difference from the published run, although Julius' style of movement will never get old anyway. Accepting as an improvement to the published movie.
