Syncs up to 6-1 start. Scumtron's improvements are marked with his name.

Difference between WIP133 in HP route:

  • avoid 5-2 3rd screen ballerinas (2dmg)
  • avoid 5-2 last screen knife bitch's knife (1dmg)
  • boost from slot7 bird (3dmg)
This way we end the stage 5 with 2 HP since we don't boost from the 1dmg bullet (previously mentioned bat inaccurately)

  • 5-2 3rd screen 13 frames longer (ballerinas)
  • 5-2 last screen 13 frames faster (look above)
  • 5-3 1st screen 3 frames faster by better jumping between tysons and at the very end (Scumtron)
  • 5-3 2nd screen lost 1 frame because bad slot1 or slot2
  • 5-3 3rd screen has bad slot4 so 2 frames lost but very end jump is 2 frames faster (Scumtron)
  • 5-3 5th screen 5 frames faster by better jumping at the very end (Scumtron) and different method to approach knife bitch

20 frames faster total. Subtimer probably off (not perfect). edit: rewrote some miswrotes. fucking television distracts me since yesterday.

I see a few places to freeze the timer for free:

  • frame 21104: +2 (could be up to 12, but 4-4 boss doesn't allow it)
  • frames 27722, 28660, 29386: +12 total, not sure if the subpixel changes frome these will matter.
  • frame 29589: +2

Which would have you entering 5-4 with the subtimer at 60: one off from getting those 3 frames back. Gotta be one more spot to find that.

Edit: Which would have you entering 5-4 with the subtimer at 0: plenty of frames to play with at 29589 since those jerks prevent you from reaching the exit for so long.

And I realize I said the frame savings should *fix* the timer. Total brain fart there.

Thanks for the list! First I recheck 5-2, 5-3 route then fiddle with subtimer.

I want to "resave" the lost frames due to bad slot 1/2/4.
