I removed the additional ketchup throwing but came up better jelly bean combinations where I could feed blob earlier without loosing time on teleporting him not far enough.

Ends in 4758 (144 frames faster than cancelled movie), there's a few other tests need to be done before finishing.

edit: note that the final submission is 2 frames faster

Unfortunately, using the "combine jellybeans effect" trick (teleport blob to specific place and transform to something) requires 1 additional ketchup jellybean to improve 109 frames compared to the cancelled one.

However, we only have 6, and we used all of them, so this route can't be finished in a shorter time (you need to wait blob to walk across 2~3 screen and then throw an apple).

And since only the ketchup jellybean lets you teleport the blob and you can't use the rocket "underground" nor avoid revisiting rat king instead of peek-a-booing, it looks like only the 8 frames will be implemented to previous one.

History:
  • Aglar PMs me his old trick from his old run that the previously TAS didn't used
  • opened up submission file, nearly rewrote full movie to see any random free improvements
  • 8 frames saved by throwing the very first jellybean as soon as possible and later change it "on the fly" by shooting another jellybean on the nearest occasion. This doesn't saves time anywhere else.

Also note that all unnecessary jellybean switching is removed.

86 frames faster than Blobv2 (last updated movie file in his workbench submission)

Some things you maybe interested in:

Blob OoB
Use Punch jellybean on the right side of the screen with at least 235 X pos for blob and 234 X pos for boy and hold left once the bean goes offscreen while the boy falls down to the hole (blob)

X Speed
To reach fastest speed as fast as possible, you press R*8, empty, R*7, empty, R*3, empty, R.

Trampoline Y speed
Checks U button every 3rd frame, stops when pressing B

I'm going to restart the TAS alone with new tricks like OoB without jellybean throwing.

Optimized movements and actions. Movie made from BlobZv2 (Zephyr's movie fie).

33 frames faster than BlobZv2 (I guess it's 66 frames faster than the workbench TAS if it's not replaced with BlobZv2 already)

I think a few frames (1? 2?) possible to squeeze out at the very end with good speed handling, which I have no idea how it works, except how to run fast: 8 times R, empty, 7 times R, empty.

Saved 33 frames because I was informed that I was doing the trampolines wrong.
