Yet another "perfect" movie beaten. This time by 12 frames.


  • Aims for the fastest time
  • Uses easiest difficulty
  • Genre: Platform


Stage 1

So I was watching the published run and noticed that it takes a lot of time (frames 2406-2420) to move those fire rings to desired positions. I really wanted to test a few things even though I knew the movie was already heavily optimized.
It seems that if you alternate left and right button presses to go back and forth just like in the published movie, sometimes the fire rings will be pushed back, sometimes they won't be pushed back. Sometimes they will be pushed back a little bit, sometimes they will be pushed back a little bit more. So instead of doing that I push them only when it is not completely pointless to do so. Saved 9 frames.

Fog: Judging.
Fog: Replaced submission file with a one frame improvement.
Fog: This is indeed an improvement. I would like to note that a Mode B run can obsolete this in the future, so long as it beats the existing record for Mode B.
Accepting as an improvement to the previous publication.
