Submission Comments
  • FCEU 0.98.16
  • Uses Warps
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Aims for Highest possible score (without losing any time)
    • Don't know if I truly achieved this goal... sometimes I didn't kill an enemy because of lag and maybe I should have tried a little harder... if a publisher doesn't want to add this, that's perfectly fine.
  • Genre: Adventure
I made a warp version since the game is pretty linear and a short movie would be better for it.
Sami made a movie without warps of Adventure Island 2. I had already TASed a few levels, so I saw his movie could be improved. I kinda promised I would make/finish this movie so here it is. I use warps at the levels 1, 3 and 5... so I can't really compare those levels with Sami. Levels 2, 4 6, 7 and 8 are exactly the same, so these can be compared with Sami's run.
  • Level 2 - 230 frames faster
  • Level 4 - 307 frames faster
  • Level 6 - 1021 frames faster
    • This is actually timed in Sami's favour, since I had to collect the bird dino in level 6, and Sami already did this in level 1.
  • Level 7 - 378 frames faster
  • Level 8 - 1525 frames faster
The total time saved in these levels is 3461 frames, which is almost a minute. I saved frames in nearly ever stage with better accuracy and lesser lag. I saved lots of seconds on each boss fight. I saved a lot by climbing the vertical levels, instead of flying up. I saved a lot by changing the route at level 8.

adelikat: Setting this to delayed in hopes for some more response. I am suprised at the lack of votes. Sami's previous run got more voters/comments than this improved version. Why the lack interest?

adelikat: Good response, accepting for publication.
