Author's comments and explanations:
This movie is for the PAL version of DuckTales.

The movie was made to see how fast the game could be beaten compared to the NTSC version. In this version Scrooge moves faster which allows to skip the helicopter in the Amazon though it's not enough to beat the game faster than the NTSC version. The movie is not perfect as it does not include the manipulations for the lag-bridge in the Amazon and the hockey-despawn in the Himalayas.

Maru: Judging.

Maru: Here at TASVideos, PAL versions of games are generally disallowed. It is only in rare cases when a PAL version of a game will be accepted. This is when there are entertainment or technical merits to using the PAL version. It has to be different enough in order to be accepted as a different branch or significantly better to obsolete the published NTSC run. Please read these sections of the movie rules: Use the Correct Version and NTSC vs. PAL.

Unfortunately, this PAL version of the game is not significantly better to warrant the obsoletion of the published run. While there were some differences with this version, such as skips that do not seem to work on the NTSC version, these were too insignificant. Therefore, this TAS cannot be accepted into a new branch.

Some optimization issues with this TAS were also pointed out in the thread, which you can read up on. Please read this rule too: Movie Must Be Good.

For those reasons, this movie cannot be accepted. Rejecting.
