In Ghost Inmate, all perfect landings must be performed in the first frame to save some frames making it harder for RTA runs to perfect their runs.

feos: Claiming for judging.
feos: Execution is good, I couldn't find sloppy places (tho I haven't checked every single click obviously, it's slow in libTAS, and savestates are gigantic).
Branching is interesting.
Every unique ending could be its own branch, but for a movie that includes them all, it can be considered Fastest Completion of the whole game in one go, which adds an extra routing challenge because not every order is the same in terms of speed. Watching the whole thing is also more handy than individual episodes. So for those episodes we'd have labels indicating their ending, and here we can avoid that label.
Refresh is the feature web browsers have, as well as Adobe Flash Player, and the game stores your progress in both cases, so it's a legitimate feature of the platform, similar to soft Reset on consoles. But abusing that feature makes it basically unwatchable, because all you see is very few unskippable cutscenes, and the game's startup sequence for 20 times. Though since Refresh is not a glitch, using it is a Standard any% goal, and avoiding it is Alternative-only. Good thing that this game is incredibly entertaining on its own, I don't even need to ask for viewer feedback on this one! It's hilarious and awesome!
"All medals" looks like it would be a great full completion branch, because that implies all endings, and all unique fails.
Regarding game name, official name is just Fleeing the Complex, and Henry Stickmin would just be the Group. I couldn't find any official source calling it Henry Stickmin[ 5]: Fleeing the Complex. Not sure how to mark the game version though, since this one is from NewGrounds (directly), and the one on Steam is an updated redesign.
Oh and the movie has been replaced.

EZGames69: Processing...
feos: Fixed rerecord count (166 from the original submission + 4 from the improvement).
