Author's comments and explanations:
This Movie is made with only turbo tools, re-recording tools and frame step tools. It is meant to show players how the game can be beaten in five minutes. BUGs like walking into a wall and "no flag pull" hepled to save time. This movie might not be possible to reproduce without the tools that are listed above.This movie did not use any tools that might disturb the original code and settings of the game.
Game objectives:to save Princess Peach from Bowser as soon as possible.

First stage:1-1

Simple speedrun, use of "no flag pull"

Second Stage:1-2

Uses "warp zone" to go to 4-1.

Third Stage:4-1

Regular Speedrun, uses "no flag pull" to save time.

Fourth Stage: 4-2 Uses "walking through wall" and "warp mess" to save time, warp to world 8.

Fifth to Eight Stage 8-1, 8-2, 8-3, 8-4

uses "no flag pull" and "warp mess" to save time

Please download the .fm2 file and run it on your emulator to find out more about this speedrun.

Nach: Hi, welcome to TASVideos. In order for movies to be acceptable, they must surpass existing published movies. This is a nice first attempt at TASing this game, but this is significantly slower than even many of our obsoleted published movies. Please review existing published movies to see what currently qualifies as the fastest run for a given game. Also, please use our forums to discuss with other users techniques for improving a movie and getting initial feedback before submitting a movie you're unsure of.

We look forward to seeing a well made record breaking movie from you in the future. Canceling this one.

Mothrayas: Hello Unknown394, and welcome to TASVideos. Your movie is a decent effort for a first TAS, but it is six seconds slower than the currently fastest published movie. To be acceptable, a submission must beat all existing records.

Your movie misses a few tricks and optimizations, such as clipping through the wall in 1-2, and not avoiding fireworks in 8-3. Take a look at the currently published movie to see how it beats your movie.

Better luck next time!

Samsara: Hello, I am here as well! The Game Resources page for SMB is a great help, but I would highly recommend talking to HappyLee about the game if you want to improve your run. Good luck!
