Author's comments and explanations:
It's been a long and arduous road, but we've finally gotten Umihara Kawase below 2 minutes. I think it's safe to say we've pushed the game to its limits. Here's a breakdown of the frame difference between my movie and Bob's after each level.

Stage 1: 1 frame.
Stage 2: 34.
Stage 3: 45.
Stage 4: 47.
Stage 5: 54.
Stage 6: 56.
Stage 7: 65.
Stage 8: 262!
Stage 9: 267.

Keep in mind that this is one of those games which is picky about desyncs. The first time you play the movie it will probably desync. This is normal: just run the movie a second time.

You won't NOTICE many differences(outside of stages 2 and 8), but they're there. This movie meets the same criteria as the runs in the past. Enjoy.

Bisqwit: I noticed the differences, and it played fine here with sounds on (when I let the game run to the menu screen before loading the movie). Excellent.
