Red Ribbon Army Base Pt 2 - During a fight in the middle of the level I kick a blue robot onto the top ledge next to a Sergeant Metallic instead of spending time fighting it. I also reflect back two missiles on Metallic and then take out the blue robot to finish the fight.

The boss saw an improvement, too. Due to new rng the boss spit out 5 missiles per barrage for me to reflect back instead of 3. I also used an L+R rush to break the boss's stance before the second barrage of missiles hit him. This let the second set of missiles do full damage instead of half damage. The L+R rushes at the end are for syncing up the rng.

With the new global timer, though, I had to redo the last half of Chow Castle (the last level) due to the properties of the purple turtle shell item. But here we saved time, too. New rng allowed for a faster Piccolo fight.

These are the first two fights so far (section 1 of the first level), but we're still figuring out some game mechanics before we move on (specifically movement optimization and a little bit of rng).

33 Frame Improvement


2-2: Better strategy pushing Annabelle after teleporter. 12 Frames Saved

2-3: Better method of retrieving Annabelle and going through teleporter after bubble section. 5 Frames Saved

3-2: Jumping into corner of ledge after mushroom to slow down faster. 1 Frame Saved. It's possible to save 5 more frames in the section before getting to the mushroom, but the time would be lost due to the changes in sub-pixels.

4-3: Can get to policeman 44 frames faster, but they are all lost waiting for the barrel. 0 Frames Saved

5-1: Waited 1 more frame before turning around and pushing gift after depositing second barrel into the spike pit. Changed method of going through the gap. 6 frames ahead at this point, but 4 are lost at the end. 2 Frames Saved

5-2: Got past wrecking ball 4 frames faster which allowed for a slightly better run-up at the end. 1 Frame Saved

5-3: Got past 10-ton weight 1 frame sooner. After kicking gift after 2nd bulldog, I waited a frame before holding Left again so that the sliding animation wouldn't occur. The time saved let the gift get hit by wrecking ball sooner. 6 Frames Saved

5-4: Slight change in the final section to be a little more accurate. 0 Frames Saved

It is possible to jump onto clothesline the same frame as the NPC. This is the fastest way across the ropes, but the time saved is always lost somewhere else in those levels.
