Author's comments and explanations:
I get a 32.70 32.69 in game 1, beating the current world record of 32.74.

The current TAS fails to even tie the RTA world record, so this is certainly an improvement.

The way this game times things is quite complex. I still can't tie the RTA record for game 2. So, this run might not be completely optimal either. UPDATE: I recently beat the game 2 RTA record, so it is possible, but I still don't have a deep understanding of the mechanics.

Fog: Judging.

Fog: Replacing input file with a faster in game time input file.

Fog: Beats the existing in game time, while taking a couple frames longer due to more accurate emulation.

Accepting as an improvement to the previous publication.

feos: There you are! I awe you something, GAME.
