Sorry bud, I'm a big fan of this game (Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded, yo) and as much as I would like this game on the site, I sadly don't think this run is very well optimized, certainly not enough for publication. You should take damage more. After you get the option (which is pretty early on) there are several areas where you stop to destroy those buildings where you can have the option destroy it during the uncontrollable animation. The reason you should hurt yourself is because after you take damage your character shoots MUCH faster. This would save a lot of time on the bossfights, which presently aren't so hot because of the gun's lackluster cooldown. Right now the only time you seem to take damage is at the end when you should be in the powered-down form for almost the whole run. Also why isn't this 2 players? I'm sure that would be faster given the fair amount of twin bosses in this game. Here, I tried the first stage (1 player). This is how I think a good run of this game should look, it is about seven seconds faster, mostly because of the boss. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Viifm2R39pA (also you can skip that warning when the game boots up a lot sooner by putting in a few coins but that doesnt really matter)

I'll just link this and this. To summarize: It doesn't matter that it's not 2 player TAS. 'Cause we allow runs that are 1 player runs for 2 player games.

Uh thanks but I don't see the relevance. Since 2 player is usually default if the game has it, it just seemed like the choice was probably deliberate, and an explanation could be helpful, no? I just like the game. :]

Yeah, I know about the unoptimisation, and didn't have enough game knowledge at the time to really optimise. Will redo the run. I'll only adress one point: two player. In this game, there really isn't a lot of fighthing outside the bosses because you go very fast and there isn't many enemies to keep up. Adding a second player causes a little bit more lag and would be mostly pointless, because he would follow exactly the same path as 1 player and only help for destroying bosses quicker (which is a little bit scummy.) In this case, I think it's better to compete against the current 1P records, rather than restrict the difficulty with 2P.

Only if they pass Moon requirements (assuming 2p is faster). Otherwise they're just suboptimal.

This product contains glitches known to the state of California to cause egg defects. <Masterjun> I'm just a guy arranging bits in a sequence which could potentially amuse other people looking at these bits <adelikat> In Oregon Trail, I sacrificed my own family to save time. In Star trek, I killed helpless comrades in escape pods to save time. Here, I kill my allies to save time. I think I need help.

Also, consider using Hardest difficulty.
