Reference

In Closing

Thanks to people below, I can complete this TAS.
  • Djeez : He publishes Gusty Glade Wrong Warp (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbPIyX_iFDo). This inspired me to make this TAS.
  • Umihoshi : He told me new trick "Fake Fall". This trick saves more than 10s in this TAS. And, his J ver TAS showed "Double Stomping". This trick is a hint of Wrong Warp in 5-1.


Masterjun: Judging while eating bananas.

Masterjun: New strategies, clever optimizations, and overall great improvements make this into a solid run. Accepting as an improvement over the previous movie.

feos: Pub.
