This run is 19 seconds faster than last movie.
Guide Principle:
Aim for fastest time
always jump
Abuse programming
Take damage to save time
Manipulate luck
use Bug
use tool,for example — dart and bomb
Improvment:
reduce some damage
jump faster
use tool
kill a little enemy to reduce time delay
use bug

adelikat: This movie uses an European rom but runs it at 60fps. This is unacceptable. But the previous movies were done & published this way too so it is unfair to the author to reject. I am accepting this run. But any future run that is done in this manner (including future Blue shadow submissions) way will be rejected. If using an E rom, it should run in PAL mode.
Bisqwit: Touching the submission to get updated time (compensated for wrongly selected emulation settings) appear in forum topic.

And yet there still is still a thousand times more information conveyed than a typical KRN post ;) I'll watch this soon too, but another 19 seconds is a lot of time. You sure have been pumping these out xipo, you must have a lot of spare time (which is a good thing). EDIT: Desynchs for me at the character select screen, it just sits there forever without doing anything, and I can stop the movie and press start to start the game. :(

Very very good run! You did better work minimizing lag in stage 4-1. Very entertaining and fast run. Im delighted to vote yes. Edit: Nice death-time-saving idea. Edit 2: Wouldnt it be faster to stand on the higher platform in the last boss fight and jump from there to reach earlier with your first shot when the boss is coming down?

May I request this movie to be redone on the (U) version of the game? As far as I know, there is not a single reason to continue making it on the European version instead. Version changes are usually discouraged only when they are the only source of improvements, which clearly isn't the case here.

seconded. The original movie was done this way as a mistake and this mistake seems to have been repeated ever since. It is time to correct this and use the U rom. My problem isn't necessarily the use of the E rom, but that it is running at NTSC speed instead of PAL speed.
It's hard to look this good. My TAS projects

The reason why I use "E rom" is that I think "E rom" is a little faster than "U rom".But I never have any problem,why you have some strange problem?

Faster?.. (E) ROM runs at 50 frames per second, while (U) runs at 60 (which is why the (U) versions are favored for speedruns).

I imagine he forgot to set PAL timing, so the game appeared to be faster when it was actually running at the wrong speed. Just guessing anyway.

Use the European version, but turn PAL emulation off, that cleared it up for me.

>The reason why I use "E rom" is that I think "E rom" is a little faster than "U rom".But I never have any problem,why you have some strange problem? The E rom should be played with "PAL Emulation" on. It will then run at the same speed as U rom. I explained this in your previous submission, and suggested that you should use U rom next time, but perhaps I was not clear enough.

So what does the judges say about this run? Is Xipo required to do a new version due the the ROM issue or not?

I think it is wise to choose ROM "Blue Shadow (E)" .Because it jumps higher and longer than U rom or "KAGE".If I use other rom,I will miss much,and I must stop much time to wait something coming,for example step in stage 1-3. PS:my English is always poor^_^

Just to make it extra super special clear: ANY movie for ANY game from now on that is recorded with the wrong PAL/NTSC settings will be rejected immediately. Times will be adjusted 20% when comparing with previous runs that were recorded the wrong way. In other words, future movies for this game can use (E) rom and still obsolete this. The rules were recently updated to reflect this.

Ghegs from SDA is doing a run on this game, and he has found a strategy that might speed up the boss fight at 2-3 by a couple seconds. Here is what is required to do it (4 MB), here is the resulting boss fight (2.5 MB). It was played on the japanese version.

Ye.If you use two bomb,you can finish the boss fight at 2-3 in 2-3 second.We always play like this^_^before.But we can't play so in "blue shadow". This is my friend's movie which is played on the japanese version-KAGE in 10:31 http://dehacked.2y.net/microstorage.php/info/5488/KAGE.fcm
