Hello. This is DJ Incendration. This beats McHazard's TAS by 16 frames (0.26 seconds) real time, and 1.43 seconds on the in-game timer. The times are now as follows:

Using the order of punches as in the individual level strategies won't make the in-game time (or real time) any slower. Made a few adjustments for entertainment, not a speed trade-off at all. I wanted it to be slightly different while having the fastest time. The dodges after 50 seconds into the first round were found to make fights with this strategy and similar ones easier for real time runners. I found this adds a little bit of entertainment, since you're not waiting for the frames.

!! Special Thanks:

Thanks go to McHazard, Zallard1 and mPap for showing me what to do and making this improvement possible. Also, thanks to Adelikat, Phil, and Summoningsalt for their TASes, speedruns and tutorials that helped me get into this game. Enjoy!
