So this is where we talk about KSSU routing and strats. Since there is a skype group I'll update this thread with whatever there has been talked about in the skype group. If you want in on skype, you can always ask here ^^
so, i haven't taken any strats form the TAS i just posted, but i did make a small change in the GCO Tower route. instead of going for Wing right after Computer Virus, you go to Tower with Jet and do the right side and basement first. After the deathwarp you Mix Wing(which is 2 abilities away from the Jet mix from DB) and do the left side. at the end of Tower this leaves you with Jet to do cart skip with, which is pretty awesome. It saves at least 6s, probably 10
for the first plasma shot you don't have to fall as far as i did, you can grab the ladder after the shot without falling much. the slow mashing is due to playing on emulator. got the Echigo Candy treasure and the Screw Attack treasure out of order.
Bad Rng with this strat could make it take a while to get cutter.
you could grab the cutter on the way there as well... is prolly faster to do
so, i did some timing, and it's about 10s slower to do these strats sadly :/ wing is just too fast in the movement. Even switching back to wing after the button puzzle skip is about equal in speed, thus making the Wing strat more consistent for 100%
it might be faster if you could get on KSS level plasma mashing, but even then i'm kinda sceptical cause i tried my best to be as fast as i could with it
just an interesting movement to note with wing, being able to keep your momentum from a dive when entering water.
By doing an Up+B with hammer Kirby's hitbox is shifted towards evil knight allowing you to damage evil knight and gain invincibility so that you can easy finish him with the spinning of the hammer throw and the actual hammer throw. Kirby has a 7 pixel wide space were he can stand to do the Up+B so you could stand either here or or any position inbetween. The only problem with the setup is if you happen to lose your ability from the damage you take.
In Great Cave Offensive by mashing A in water you area able to consistently get this chest before you jump high enough to get onto the platform saving some time
To consistently get a Wham Bam quick kill with hammer you can stand with Kirby's left foot aligned with the edge of the tile he is standing on and charging an up B when the health bar reaches this point
and then doing this movement
the last hit on Wham Bam will not be present in the arena were Wham Bam will have less health
in Dyna Blade you can save time by holding left during the full charge jet movement and when you finish pressing A and then B quickly and then using jet hover to destroy the bomb block
In Revenge of the King you can save time by instead of waiting to get a full charge on the ground with jet instead you can get a smaller charge and then finish getting the rest of the full charge as you fall.
I mash A and B while holding down and the direction i want to go. This is most useful for the beginning of rotk and the room leading to computer virus in mww.
It is possible to break this bomb block with jet although somewhat difficult, if done on the first try saves about 0. 6 of a second.
you can mash the touch screen to select the skip tutorial prompt
