Ok, ive done a quick WIP that goes up to (and completes) red cave, so just over half way through the first world.
Here's a link:
I'll be continuing along with this whenever i get time (got exams soon though) along this sort of line, comparing it with the SDA run, it's 29 seconds faster by the time red cave is finished.
A few questions though:
I rushed through the water level and it does look a bit sloppy, considering that entertainment should be a factor, and the speed doesn't seem to change as long as a is held down, should i redo it?
Just it would be easier to redo it now than have to erase a lot of stuff later on (i dont have time/knowledge for hex editing)
Also i have been discovering very minor (<0.5sec) improvements in much earlier levels that im reluctant to go all the way back and change now, would it be worth doing them, or would you rather see a completed run at all? (if i keep going back for minor improvements the run will realistically never get finished)
And finally does anyone know of other improvements?
