endurance% is a category where you gotta get as much score as you can without dying pretty much might make one where you gotta get as much score without eating any spooksters

Info Teddy: Claiming for judging.
Info Teddy: Set branch label to "Extra" as this selects the Extra mode.
Info Teddy: Also rejecting for failing to beat all known records, as explained by Spikestuff. See the notes on the other submission for my advice.

PSX TASer of 2016
Much like with the other submission I have to again point to PacAttack's very own retro enthusiast Pinballwiz45b who has racked up a higher score than what was demonstrated here without tool-assistance: Link to video To recite what I wrote previously.

Better routing management, and better ghost manipulation can rack you up a higher score than what you have here in theory, and partially in practice.

They're Ghosts, and you break your own category rules within 12 seconds. Edit: Since my main playing style is avoiding ghosts, this is what Ghosting a Ghost looks like to follow the category the author made who didn't actually follow through with it. Link to video Also without eating a Ghost I have a score of 257,850 in comparison to your 251,950 which ate ghosts. My movement is not entirely perfect to which I admit, but it's to showcase what can be done in that pacifist playstyle.

the "without eating any ghosts" was just a thought for another cat, shoulda put a comma also yeah i partially see where i did mess up, for example that loop that i kept just passing and then couldnt get the fruit for 2-4k i dont remember if it changes or not but again im gonna be taking this into consideration for my next tas ill research the ghost manipulation because it sounds kinda cool to use and routing will be changed because it was really just weird, like that one pause at the first tas for like a second at the start ill research them now man thanks
the world would be a better place without me and i live for that

If you want to submit improvements, do you want this submission (and the other one) canceled in the meantime?
