In Closing

Thanks to Hetfield and FractalFusion, I can complete this TAS. Their advices, bk2, Lua is very helpful.

Samsara: Judging.
Samsara: Great run and audience response. Due to the feedback in the submission thread and on previous MMX2 submissions, I'm accepting this as a new category, with the caveat that both this run and the "best ending, no upgrades" run will be obsoleted by a true 100% run that achieves both the best ending and all upgrades.
Guga: Processing...
