6 frames faster than published. Player 2 jumps 1 time fewer and the improvement comes from more frequent hit registers (and destroying bullets faster to shoot the next ones earlier).

The movie started from a scratch but I heavily modified the authors' strategy at 1st "boss" (that tower with a man and vulnerable at bottom box thingy) however I wouldn't be as fast as this if I wouldn't analyze their effort.

Comparison of hits (this wip vs published run) from 3582th frame
