I had made this movie using BizHawk. In this TAS, I softlocked Super Mario Bros. at the end of 1-1. It was made on 10 Sept 2021. It is done in the PAL version because it gives Mario more x position towards the right side of the screen making the softlock possible.
Please support

feos: Claiming for judging.
feos: This run is about 133 milliseconds faster than the human record for this category (RTA runners use PAL ROM, but their videos are at 60fps), but about 2 frames slower than the PAL SMB TAS. 1 frame is lost in the underground due to making a small jump which gives you less downward momentum, and 1 frame is lost after getting out of the pipe, but I was unable to understand what magic input HappyLee does exactly to go faster there.
While we're still working on the rules for Playground, this submission seems to fit in so far. Delaying until Playground is implemented (should be soon).
feos: So this is decently done, the goal has some following so it will be interesting to people, and it's clearly defined and is different from what we can published. So it goes to Playground.
