So I was just doing a speedrun of this game and I wasn't paying attention. I clipped the side by accident and launched up into the air. I then realized that if you could do that in Alternative, then you could do it on this. It's about a 0.5 second time save from Amoeba's run where he went around.

The time was a 53.20

That's been done for years and keep in mind that Amoeba is on PAL so switch collision is really dumb and it's already hard enough on NTSC.

The debunks are real

But I'll use this method in my runs and keep it to myself if it's already been used for years now.

Also he didn't do it on NTSC either

Yeah Friks I have the record in NTSC as well as PAL.
In regards to the strat it absolutely would save time but you've gotta weigh up whether you want to add in the extra inconsistency. Beginner is a rough speedrun because its basically a grind for decent collision in a lot of stages, adding in this strat would induce more resets.
If you're willing to take that then its definitely an improvement. Nice find regardless~

I know you have NTSC but I also know you're mainly on PAL so I simply forgot to mention that you've done runs on NTSC. Regardless switch collision is still dumb.
