It's faster and just as clean. BTW, how much time do you save suiciding the character in Egypt over using the menu?

It looks much more optimized. There were some weird moves that were suspect in latest movies that aren't in this one. Voting yes. P.S. It would be nice that you write how much faster is this movie compared to precedent one in your submission text.

Sure watch for me. The movie looks excellent. There was 1 moment or 2 where I wondered if you couldn't hit the enemy instead of dodging, but overall, a fun watch. yes vote

As I sit here enjoying my grilled ham-and-cheese-on-wheat sandwich, I watch as Billy and Chin destroy everyone they come across. I see naturally-occurring glitches such as the spawn point in Italy. I awe as Chin wall-kicks his way to shaving seconds off the current existing time. And I enjoy this movie just as much as I enjoy my lunch. xipo, you have earned my respect. And my Yes vote. :3

Agreed. Not only does it make it easier for us to spot the differences so that we can judge it, but when it gets accepted, those referencing the saved times can note how you did so. Anyways, I've kept up with all the Double Dragon 3 runs because I'm one of the few fans who thinks it's the best in the series (and not the second one!) I must say, it was a good run. It seemed more fluid, and I liked that you used Billy a little bit more than you did in your last run. Definite yes from me.

Spawn glitch? the enemies do spawn there, it's no glitch. And he already did that super wall kick jump with chin on the previous run (so did I in my speedrun). Great movie nonetheless.

This reminds me of the "killer holywater/dagger glitch" in Castlevania 2 Glitchvania 2.
<klmz> it reminds me of that people used to keep quoting adelikat's IRC statements in the old good days <adelikat> no doubt <adelikat> klmz, they still do

Nice run, and moderately intertaining. Yes vote. One note though: You wobble way too much in this run. A few times is ok, but it becomes annoying after that. Please don't take this as anything but constructive criticism; I really did like your movie.

Hey, video is awesome, but I want to inform you... this can be done faster with this rom: Double Dragon III - The Rosetta Stone (J) [p1].nes MOD EDIT: ROM Link Removed It contains HUGE glitch, where while pressing start + punch it moves your character into next arena.

The problem with that is that [p1] means it's NOT a valid [!] dump. And it can not be used on the site. [p] - Pirate

Didn't know. I'll try to find another version with this glitch. I remember to play it on console. EDIT: Any link to site that explains other meanings? I see stuff like "b1" "o1" "t1" EDIT2: Only that p1 version contains glitch [and doesn't contain "copyright infos" on begining.
