Yeah I honestly have no idea either. It would have to mostly be from the faster cycle skip, going underneath the machine at the start of factory (you did that in wr, but still a timesave compared to what I usually did) and being way faster in the 3rd machine room.

Ok, I'm definitely not going to bother going under the pole for wr attempts. Check out this ridiculous run I got with the regular cycle skip (but going straight up instead of bouncing off the walls- honestly not much harder tbh)

yeah the game literally gives you the time after every cup, i really don't see any reason not to switch to igt, just get an estimate for loading times on ds and wiiuvc and subtract those from the already submitted runs?

Yeah for sure. Very glad it finally happened, are there any other theoretical tricks we can implement? You mentioned going under the first spike thing in factory, which has now been done, and the faster 2nd last room has also been done (well that was never theoretical, I just didn't think it was easily doable in runs, especially right at the end lol).

I think I've come to the conclusion that using both the fire bar and pole skips in the same run may not ever be viable for runs. Spent about 40 minutes grinding it out with savestates today but this was as close as I got https:/​/​clips.​twitch.​tv/​LaconicEasyWatermelonTheRinger.​ I got a similar amount underneath the pole a couple more times but it's just such a brutal trick. Doing the cycle skip definitely makes it harder- probably only 1/3 of successful cycle skips end up having the right momentum at the right place to even having a chance at getting underneath. I do hope to do it at least once soon though.

Quick update: After around an hour, I got the skip under the pole! It took about an hour, and I don't think it actually save that much time- I timed it, and it saves just under 2 seconds compared to the ending in my WR, which is slightly slower than the old method due to bouncing off the two walls. Furthermore it will most likely be almost impossible to get it with the current cycle skip strat, which saves around a second on its own (iirc). So I think it may save around 1 second max, if done perfectly, over the cycle skip strat.

That definitely makes sense. I'll look into the specifics of how exactly I'm losing time in some of these rooms and hopefully get consistent at the faster methods.

Thanks so much for breaking this down! Really nice to see where I lose time. How did you gain .15 in the second crow room though? 9 frames for such a seemingly basic room that I thought I was doing near perfectly... There's definitely a lot more to work on than I expected.

I didn't even notice the third machine room, damn. That's quite a bit of timeloss, definitely makes the whole run seem less intimidating to beat lol. Falling straight into the 3rd crow room is a really cool timesave which I never really bothered learning. I think it'll definitely be worth using it in runs now though (although I think the way you went about it lost a decent chunk of time from going quite a bit higher than you needed to before the drop). I also think hitting the roof at 2:13 may be a little slower than jumping straight in, at least with how you did it. I can see it being a bit faster if you hit the roof further to the left but the way you did it felt kinda slow to me.

I'm almost certain they save time, as you accelerate to fullspeed pretty quick. I might time them just to be sure though.

Oh, and I forgot to ask something extremely important: Do you think sub 2:30 is possible??? I'm not sure how much going under the pole thing saves but with that + even better execution, I think it may be on the horizon.

Just finished watching the new WR. Actual insanity. I didn't even think that factory strat was possible and it's pretty clear to me that the strat in the 2nd last room saves a lot more time than I expected. There are only 4 or 5 places in the entire run where I can even spot mistakes, and they probably lose less than .1 each. Without the new strat (which is fucking ridiculous by the way, no idea how you got that but now we know it's possible lol) I think 2:32.5 might actually be maxed. I'll have to get back on the grind but I think this time you may have actually killed the category for good, lol

I believe the GBA player runs at a slightly different FPS, but apart from that anything with a faster FPS I would assume would be cheating.

I've been working a lot on 100% lately, but I'm not very consistent yet. I've made a few 4:30s but am having trouble with the consistency to get anything below that. And yeah it's awesome that so many new people are playing the game!

I've seen hundreds of youtubers tell people to join their discords. There's no way it's that. Possible false reporting? Is there someone who tends to dislike a lot of your videos?
