Yet another version... appearantly. Blame Nitrodon this time. He found a 64 frame improvement at level 10-3. The black screen between the levels took one frame longer unfortunately... so a 63 frame improvement.
Submission file updated: Nitrodon found another improvement, this time on level 3-2... it's now 8 frames faster. I replayed the entire movie from there, and was able to make an improvement of my own :). Level 6-4 is now 24 frames faster, due to a small glitch. This new version is also 3 frames faster with level transitions. This means a 35 frame improvement... adding that to those 63 frames makes this a 98 frame improvement over the currently published version.
Submission file updated second time: AnS found a 16 frame improvement on level 6-3. Quite an accomplishment to still find improvements... you'd say that at some point, no further improvements are possible. AnS also hexedited the fcm, thanks a lot! This improvement also made the fceu timer display 22:37 instead of 22:38

Seeing as this is exactly same run as the previous submission but only this time this is around 60 frames faster, I think its safe that I (who watched and voted in the previous submission) dont need to view this. Voting yes. Now if some find this a clear violation to the voting rules, then ban me from voting. Take me to jail... throw away the keys... I aint afraid of ******* ******* ** ** *** ***!

Submission file has been updated, it's now 35 frames faster. Right after I submitted this run, Nitrodon spotted an 8 frame improvement at level 3-2. I replayed the entire TAS from there (so no hex editing), and I found an improvement of my own in level 6-4; it's now 24 frames faster. There were also 3 frames saved in level transitions. So the updated version is 35 frames faster than the previous version, and the movie is 98 frames faster than the currently published run. The level 6-4 improvement involves a small glitch, and all levels are TASed once more, so it might be worth checking out again :P

Haha, this trick at level 6-4 was funny. But that's not glitch or programming error, just minor mistake in level design. Anyway, it was very creative find, and I suggest you take screenshot for 9th publication from this moment.

Just thought I'd let you know that this seems to be recorded with bad dump rom, although it plays back just fine with the [!] version, so it shouldn't be a big deal.
This was the first time I've seen this game, and it was somewhat entertaining, although I don't quite get what the big deal is about it (everyone seems to absolutely love it). Anyway, I'll throw a meaningless yes vote in.
It seems to me like I used the right rom (U) [!]... so I'm not sure about that.
Haha, where did you get that impression?
Actually, the previous version of this movie was published less than a month ago. At that point, there weren't any known improvements, so this submission can't possibly be older than a month. You probably get this feeling because the run is constantly being improved, which is why there is nearly always a run of this game at the workbench. Hopefully this is the final version ever :P

Adventures of Lolo (U) [!] gives me a mismatched checksum when I load the movie into FCEU, but Adventures of Lolo (U) [b1] gives me a matching checksum. I could copy them down for you if you'd like, but like I said, it plays back in both so it's not a big deal. Maybe wherever you get your roms has this one mislabeled (ie you mislabeled it when you dumped it yourself;))
