So I have used a new method I have now dubbed Extreme Frame Skip to get a total of 6 world records. 5 of which are Fleeing The Complex making up all of the flash categories (except from normal Any%, Flash) and the other one being a very improved version of Aggressive Ending (27.270 to 18.850). I will reply with the method.

You will need a program capable of opening swf files. This ISN'T a browser. The recommended program to use is PotPlayer which is a multi-purpose media player. Anyway, load up the flash file and choose which ending you want (this affects all flash games including Henry Stickmin) and try experimenting. For example, if you click the fast-forward button in PotPlayer to the end of the FtC flash file (1 frame until the max) you get the Convict Allies ending while Presumed Dead requires you to be on Frame 112 (when the first 4 options appear) and then click fast-forward 12 times to get to the start of the Presumed Dead timed options menu. For Aggressive Ending in StD, It requires Frame 3 (when the stickpage black bar starts appearing) and click the fast-forward 13 times and click the diamond.

I originally did this for Aggressive Ending - Flash 27.270 to see if i could get it approved but when it was i made 5 FtC WRs and an improved 18.850 on Aggressive Ending. They were all approved and now makes XFS (Extreme Frame Skip) a viable method for speedrunning Henry Stickmin.
