Submission Text Full Submission Page
This movie is the very same as the current publication, except that it skips the Hard Levels in order to trigger the credits as fast as possible. Also note that in the current publication the credits are skipped by doing soft reset, because the last 5 hard levels can be accessed only after.
Two months ago I thought that making this movie would be useless since the very same contents are already featured in the full completion run, but on the other hand this is a Vautable goal so it should be submitted anyway I guess...

Playback note

Before opening the .bk2 file, go on GB > Settings > Enable BIOS > True, otherwise BizHawk will crash.

Objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 2.2.1
  • Beats the game as fast as possible
  • Allows credits to be shown
  • Submitting the second run with GBC bios!

Fog: Judging.
Fog: This is an interesting scenario which I don't believe we've come across before.
This run contains no actual new content compared to the current "all levels" publication (unless you account for the BIOS), and only aims to reach the credits (and Vault).
If there was not already the "all levels" run published on here, then this would have been accepted without any issues.
However, there just isn't a compelling reason to publish this alongside the existing "all levels" run when the "all levels" run contains the exact same content (and the extra levels too).
Rejecting.

So, the contents of this any% is identical to the 100% run, except the movie is cut short to display credits. I expect a discussion of site rules. I have a preference for runs of differing content.

Indeed, technically speaking, this run is not beating any existing record, nor showing off any different content from the "all levels" runs, whose go for the full completion. However, since the restriction of avoiding redaundant content is only applied for non-Vaultable goals, I'm assuming that this submission could be accepted.
my personal page - my YouTube channel - my GitHub - my Discord: ThunderAxe31#1512 <Masterjun> if you look at the "NES" in a weird angle, it actually clearly says "GBA"
