Any ingame actions which allow to save time - it is always a good idea.

If you plan on improving it, be sure to time all hits when you kill enemies/bosses. As right now you are just using turbo which leads to not all hits being optimal as well as a couple of missed hits which doesn't look good. You can try to use the RAM Watch/Search, unless you aren't already, to see when you are able to hurt a boss and so on.
Here tiny script to display basic info (XY position/speed and Boss HP): Download BramStokersDracula.lua
Language: lua

XposLast = 0 YposLast = 0 gui.register(function() Xpos = memory.readword(0xFF0D68) Ypos = memory.readword(0xFF0D6C) BossHP = memory.readbyte(0xFF49D1) Xspd = Xpos-XposLast Yspd = Ypos-YposLast XposLast = Xpos YposLast = Ypos gui.text(10,1,string.format("X:%4d Y:%4d dx:%2d dy:%2d",Xpos,Ypos,Xspd,Yspd), 0xFFFF00FF, clear) if (BossHP > 0 and BossHP < 17) then gui.text(138,21,string.format("Boss HP: %2d",BossHP), 0xFF0000FF, clear) else end end)
P.S. Small tip: Try to avoid killing low creatures in places where simple possible to overjump them. {Attack in a sitting position is slow down.} For example you spent unnecessary time wasting by killing of rat in 1-1 (frame 1836) or spider in 1-2 (frame 2740). ---

This thread about Bram Stoker's Dracula, it's not the place to discuss other games. Try to ask in correct thread and probably someone will help you.
I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Current projects: NES: Tetris "fastest 999999" (improvement, with r57shell) Genesis: Adventures of Batman & Robin (with Truncated); Pocahontas; Comix Zone (improvement); Mickey Mania (improvement); RoboCop versus The Terminator (improvement); Gargoyles (with feos)

I should suffer damage in rat 1-1 (frame 1836) and jumping spider 2-2 (frame 2740)? if I do this and die in chief I will lose 36 frames

Why you should suffer damage? It is easy to do without damage. Look here: [url=http://dehacked.2y.net/microstorage.php/info/290843773/Bram%20Stoker%27s%20Dracula%201-2%20%28fixed%29.gmv ]BS_Dracula 1-2(fixed)[/url] As bonus i also a bit improved boss fight for you :) In total 20 frames faster.

I decided to use this thread for Work In Progress discussions of BSD for SEGA CD. I've done the first stage. Any improvements? Maybe suggestions? Encode here: Link to video http://tasvideos.org/userfiles/info/28991539937993319
TASing is like making a film: only the best takes are shown in the final movie.
