Author's comments and explanations:
Do you use warps or passwords?
"Well, there's no passwords for Super Mario Bros, but yes, I did use warps to skip a lot of the game."

What kind of programming errors do you abuse in the game?
"I didn't really abuse any."

Do you take hits? Do you use death? Do you save and restart in the middle of the movie? How many characters do you control?
"No I do not take any hits, I did not use death, I used savestates, I only played Mario."

What are your aims? Fastest possible? Maximum score? 100% kills? 100% items? Indicate the priority of each aim in your movie.
"My aim was to try to beat the world record, but I didn't so now I just do speedruns for fun."

Please describe the game briefly. It helps those who are unfamiliar with the game.
"I'm pretty sure everyone knows what the game is by now."

Mothrayas: Claiming.

feos: This submission deserves neat formatting.

Mothrayas: Hello ace7153, and welcome to TASVideos.

Here at TASVideos, we publish only the best TASes, and a submission must beat all existing records. The fastest record of this version of the game (E) currently is 04:55.16, around a minute faster than your submission. As your movie is not even close to optimal, it is not suitable for publication - as such, I'm cancelling rejecting this submission.

Please review the movie rules (particularly "The movie must be good") and guidelines to see what kind of optimization level we expect from a submission for site publication.

Better luck next time!
