I referred to parrot14green and FractalFusion's submission and forum to make this run. Especially, I got a lot of advices from parrot14green. Thank you very much!

sgrunt: Replaced the submission file with one that is three frames faster.

klmz: Claimed for judging.

sgrunt: Replaced the submission file again with a 30 frame improvement.

Mister Epic: Added Dailymotion module (encoded from that 30 frame improvement)

klmz: Good quality and positive audience feedback. I think we can have this submission under a traditional "character_choice" + "any%" category alongside the two currently published movies of the same game.

Mister Epic: Waiting for mmarks' HD encode, then I'll publish.
