    [Wall-Jumping is defined as jumping against a wall [or pipe] in such a manner that a pixel or two of Mario is stuck in the wall [or Pipe] and is able to use that to jump again, far higher then can be done normally. Further definition; Mario cannot be made to jump off of a surface that is 90 degrees perpindicular to the ground. Please note this can be further used to also go through solid objects not normally passable as is disallowed.]
    Submission Message
    Since I am having difficulties getting my video of this run to upload, this is the youtube link at which it can be viewed.

    This score was achieved on December 27th, 2013. I streamed it live on twitch while simultaneously recording it on VHS. This video is a digital copy of that VHS tape; the twitch archive having long since been timed-out and deleted. Console boot-up is at :24, before that you can briefly see the intro to Battletoads; that is what I had been taping over. I reset at 4:50 and begin the official run. My score ends at 3:15:25, when I accidentally freeze the console while entering the doom ship at the end of world 6. (I had set a cup down on the table, too close to the NES...doh.) Power off is at 3:22:08
    I took great care to observe the rules of 'extreme settings' and none of my point pressing techniques nullify the level timer. In some cases, I take a break from playing by remaining in a warp pipe area. In this case, there is still a timer running that could kill me if I am away too long. I do not abuse these areas.

    Thank you for your time, and I look forward to what the future will bring for all our gaming endeavors!

    Starting to watch this run now, but I ask that those interested please check out this policy discussion thread that has to do with one clause mentioned in the SMB3 rules - https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...282#post751282

    What is the reason you waited on the timer in world 2 after killing the boomerang brother @0:53:30? Same with the coin ship in World 3. @1:22:00, as well as other places through out the run.


    Why did you skip the Fire Bros?

    I assumed he/she was using the time as a break.

    I was thinking it had something to do with catching up on Twitch chat maybe.

    The Fire Bros are behind the wall in World 2. They are at the very top right of the world 2 map. You have to use a hammer to get to them though.
