Here you can see a revision of this game by nitsuja, 4:35.31 minutes faster the previous run by mazzeneko. The strategy used was changed radically, using Raphael instead ofDonatello and using dash moves more often.

The damage for every move was mapped out carefully by monitoring the internal values of the RAM, to be able to choose the best attack for every situation. Luck was manipulated to make some enemies appear in more convenient positions.

Total movies: 2

Now with something that isn't a placeholder in the second half of stage 2. Saved another 122 frames up to when the last enemy unloads. (Also adjusted input so that that's where it ends.)

There's still some variations that are very close together, and I'm not done with positional optimizations either. It'll probably take a while to sort everything out and get this stage finished.

So as it turns out, staying away until I had something to show for my absence was a terrible idea and just resulted in me not working on anything. Never doing that again.

Anyway, this is where I left off work on TMNT IV. It's somewhere around 35-40 seconds faster through the first two stages, though because of the lag differences between emulators I was never able to get an exact frame count.

Everything up to the start of the fence section is finalized... probably. I might need to look over it again. After that, it's a quick test run to get an idea of how many special attacks I'll need to use.

I'd say more, but it's been so long since I've worked on this that I need some time to remember everything.
