Full completion of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Both this run and the short version use a wobbling trick in order to make Link walk a bit faster. The execution of this maneuver requires the usage of a controller that allows the player to press Up+Down simultaneously (such as, in this case, a modified Snes9x's controller). The traveling-through-walls trick that is seen in the short version is not used.

This run features an improvement of a little over 4 minutes.

SNES Zelda completed in a very quick manner. The trick that is used to cut completion time by so much is holding left+up+right while entering a corridor or staircase, allowing Link to clip through the wall and walk out of bounds.

This movie is an astonishing minute and a half faster than the preceding version thanks to some new glitches.

Now 2.9 seconds faster than the preceding version due to new glitches involving doorways, stairs, and pressing three directional buttons at once.

Now 29 seconds faster because of a new path and a wobbling trick that gives extra movement speed.

At the end of the day. This wasn't faster than Tompa.

The grunt of the input is handled by the author not me.
So if they're are any mistakes left in it'll be during the author's segment.

For a first timer, this is honestly real good despite the errors in the original input.
Too bad Tompa's was better by 464 frames.
