Here is the longest awaited obsoletion on the site, it took 7 years to brake the curse, and 4 talented tasers; arukAdo, Cardboard, Bablo and scrimpeh.
Originally started by Cardboard and Bablo, they tased up to Stage 3-3 and then lacked interrest/time (pretty much like all preceding attempts), thats where the two of us took over.
We end up beating Phil and Genisto's old movie by 01:37.62 (~20 seconds are from removing the dance after beating dracula).
Bablo and Cardboard did decide to use the jap rom, the stage8 is red(blood) instead green and some other small details are uncensored in this version (boobs for exemple), the timing have near no difference, I believe this rom choice should not be an issue.
Im not sure if the run sync on others version of snes9x, we tryed to beat their movie but with not much success so we decided to just keep going with what we got.
For a list of tricks, both old and new, please refer the Game Resources page


A little table to recap the improvements over last movie, first collumn is the total frames won in the stage, second show how many lag frames was removed, third is the difference for bosses.
Full excel spreadsheet is available on google, it detail any rooms and lag as well.
Stage522-2no boss

Worthy to mention that the biggest improvement in a single room is 4-4 with 660 frames, second place goes to A-1D with 526 frames.
