Such as the improvement of 2 players TAS. We improved 8 frames at stage 4, but have bad luck at stage 6 and 7. So the final improvement is only 4 frames. Such as the improvement of 2 players TAS.

Memory: Not much feedback here, somewhat split, but the votes lean positive. Additionally the improvement is not that large so not a big difference between TASes. Still the same good Contra pacifist.

I will register the same complaint I always do in these runs. Why do you destroy weapon pods and other such things if you don't need the pickups? To me that violates the spirit of pacifist.

I think it's to gain more score from destroying the pods, so you can earn more extra lives and use death abuse. In fact, without that, I think you'd be forced to destroy one of the snow tanks in Stage 5, which is IMHO a bigger violation of the pacifist rules. At least shooting the weapon pods doesn't result directly in death to an enemy. It's good to see this run getting as tightly optimized as the usual any% run. Nice job.
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.

If that is in fact the reason then I agree the trade is worth it, but this it at least the third time I've asked about it (at least in reference to Contra series runs) and the only answer I've ever gotten is "weapon pods aren't alive" which was supremely unsatisfying.
