Author's comments and explanations:

Zanac is a fast-paced shooter genre game that allows incredible amounts of enemies and bullets on the screen "without" lag.

This movie uses a soft reset in order to enable level select and skip directly to the last level Reasons for doing this:

In addition, the use of frame advance means the making the boss fight faster than the my previous run. Frame advance also made it unneccessary to gather rapide fire power-ups.

The level select is done by recording 13 soft reset. Since FCEU records from soft reset, make sure you re-open the ROM or do a hard rest prior to loading the .fcm file


Bisqwit: Although it's a dubious movie (it begins from un-clean RAM, instead of a power-on), I've decided to accept this movie. The longer version of Zanac does not offer mentionably more entertainment than this movie, and due to playing only the hardest stages in this movie, the skill-to-noise ratio in this movie is higher than in the other.
With this, there's one skeleton less in our closet.
