About the movie

This is very similar to the SNES submission, except that the move glitch isn't available here. Also, I used a lot of soft resets to save dialogue time, but for some reason there are places where it was slower due to loading times, and that's why I didn't do it everywhere.

Minor frame-perfect trickeries

4-6, 5-4, 5-5, extra 5-6, extra 5-7, extra 6-1

Unintended solutions

Note that this section doesn't list all the minor frame-perfect tricks.


Made the first block fall on the left and then grab it again while it's falling.


Another example of a block grabbed in mid-air while it's falling.


It's hard to explain. Ok.

extra, 2-1

Using a spare move to avoid a combo that would break the required chain.

extra, 2-10

Level beaten with 1 spare move left due to a programming overlook.

extra, 3-1

Stop the fall of a block by moving another one under it at the right moment.

extra, 5-8

Actual alternate solution, it can be used in a casual play.

Memory: Judging
Memory: Optimization appeared good.
There weren't any posts here from the audience, but the votes were not all that positive. I felt the TAS was largely repetitive, with only a few mildly interesting moments at best.
Accepting to Vault as a new branch.

The submission file doesn't actually sync in 2.4, but appears to sync in 2.3.1 which is the version listed in the header of the bk2. EDIT: Author corrected submission text to reflect actual version of bizhawk used.
[16:36:31] <Mothrayas> I have to say this argument about robot drug usage is a lot more fun than whatever else we have been doing in the past two+ hours
[16:08:10] <BenLubar> a TAS is just the limit of a segmented speedrun as the segment length approaches zero
