Yes, we are also making the pacifist TAS and it's finished almost at the same time. It's a 383 frames' improvement from soig's TAS. Mainly by using new routes in level3 and level5. Here's the new improvement of this TAS, 88frames faster. http://tasvideos.org/userfiles/info/53171377782258721 Thanks to mtvf1 giving the idea to save time in level 5. Watch on youtube:
