perhaps getting the car (third upgrade) in most levels can make the movie shorter. I think it has higher speed and attack. The final upgrade (tank) has good attack but low speed. So perhaps the car then?

hi people! I just got into TAS and I started working on Felix the Cat today. i'd say i'm about 1/4 of the way done, and have shaved off a few seconds off the old record. I spent about an hour looking for warp glitches that would help me skip most of a level, but since I haven't found any (and don't see how there can be any in this game) I was wondering if anybody knew of any glitch that would save me some time. btw I chose Felix, because I JUST learned how to make TAS today, and I always liked it as a kid so I figured i'd start with that. I"m planning on doing a "Jackie Chan's Kung-Fu Action" run next.

Cool. A few seconds sounds pretty good, hope you stick with it and complete the run. That is one of our famtasia runs, so improving it will be welcomed. And welcome to the TAS world :)
It's hard to look this good. My TAS projects

The official time is simply the time of your .fcm (I hope you used FCE Ultra to record the movie.) To see your time of your .fcm, open up your ROM, go to "File", and click "Replay Movie..." Now choose your moviefile. You should see the movie's length in that box now (this is also the official time), as well as some other information. To submit the movie, you first have to login here using your normal username and password, and then go here to submit your movie. Before you submit it, make sure you've followed all the instructions on the "Submit Movie"-page carefully, especially the rules. Let me know if you have any problems. Good luck! :) Just curious, how much faster than Walker's run did it get? Oh, and if you are very unsure about how to do it, send me the .fcm and the comments on the run, and I could submit it for you if you want.

I don't know how long you've been following this site and these forums, but it'd be a good idea to post your fcm here for some constructive criticism. Beating an existing record is always a good thing but it doesn't guarantee that there's not still more room for improvement.

Besides the fact that this is original version with copyrights, there is some weird glitch that appears on the levels. There are some weird two blocks in a vertical line in the sky, which don't do anything. Last time I checked, this appears only on pirate copies of Felix the Cat, produced after 2000s. Or... this could be a bad ROM of the game. I had a singlecart before that featured the same glitch, but the whole game was beatable noneless. You can actually stand inside those blocks, but this is pointless, and doesn't do anything for gameplay progress. But it's still worth mentioning that this glitch exists. Because, on my old bootleg cart from 90s, doesn't have this glitch at all. I am sure that official NES cart doesn't have it too, but I am not collecting NES carts, so this needs to be checked by people, who own NTSC NES cart of Felix the Cat, and see if this glitch exists there. ;) I bet it doesn't, because the majority of pirate copies of this game back in 1990s had copyright info unchanged, and they were pirate copies of NTSC version.
is this legit?
