Really nice run @Sapiens I seem to mostly bounce too high off the last koopa unfortunately or splat down the hole.
Thanks dude - I feel like 294 is in reach…if possible.
I should have had 293 already if not for jumping over the darn star box…
We are jumping at rather different points and obtaining P speed very differently.
Kind of want to frame compare our runs to see where we are each losing time.
Yeah I think 294 is possible after a quick compare.
I’m obtaining P speed a second earlier than you but you are making up time at the jump up to the clouds.
Insane that you used the clouds. Shorthopping the last koopa is really you could do I think.
Wish i hadn’t posted up the video already giving Sapiens the chance to see what I was doing haha.
But yeah short hopping the turtle i find difficult as my muscle memory in Mario is to do the high jump off them.
Been considering if it wouldn’t be better to fall without jumping and then do 2 short jumps to the end instead of using the Koopa bounce.
And I also watched your video again to fine tune it…
Can’t imagine it being faster than this. It looks completely optimized now.
Wow, that is intense. Great run.
This is my submission. Probably it for me. I’ve been trying and trying to do that turtle hop into clouds but I can’t do it.
Yeah the best I could get was 285. Tony tried for one hour and got 293. I was upset
Nice! Welcome to club 294!
Will anyone else join?
Full 10 points for anyone that ties for first place!
Well, I finally got around to putting some time into this one. It wasn’t that hard when you have so much speedrunning around the game to look at. I think it took about 30 minutes of attempts to get the 294.
Also, feels so good seeing my name on numba 1 again. So good.
Considering you were the first to get the 294, you get to choose the next game.
Quite interesting that we all get 294 with slight differences.
I tend to always have to abuse turn back to get higher jump to get up to the clouds due to the turtles position when I get there at best pace, which in turn loses the time gained so not really beneficial.
Okay, let’s do Saturn Daytona USA - Arcade Mode, Beginner Race with default difficulty, and default 8 laps and see who gets the best time.
Awesome, I’ll set it up tonight
