    Rules
    TGTS Settings [3 Lives to Start, 5 Lives Maximum]
    Special Rules: Timer starts the instant you hit the Start button and stops the INSTANT you touch the golden axe in the final castle. Time will be recorded in WHOLE seconds ONLY. Use of the Wall-Jump tactic is NOT allowed! You MUST access the Underwater area of 8-4 by using the pipe across the lava pit. Doubling back and using the pipe before the pit to do so will equal Disqualification. Use of ANY Pipe to go somewhere different then the programmers intended is BANNED! You MUST complete the game or your record/attempt WILL be disqualified!

    [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.]
    [The Alternative Pipe usage refers to, for example, going through a lone brick while crouched to go through the wall and access World -1, whereas the pipes would normally be Warp Pipes to Worlds 2-4 Respectively. The doubling back on World 8-4 to get to the underwater area is another example]
    Submission Message
    I played this on an NES with Super Mario Bros. This is a 5:06.2 I think when starting on the start press and ending on the axe, so I entered it as 5:06. This is a 5:03 if you start when the timer appears as I show in the title of my video. If you need further proof of my speedruns you can look me up on speedrun.com where I have this and many other times submitted, and my youtube and twitch at samm_1703. This is the run here ---->

    Hi Samuel, congratulations on your achievement. Every community has its rules, habits, and customs. Here most people want to see real hardware, cart, and console boot-up for NES submissions.

    I mean he did reset it at the very beginning, and you can see him pressing the button.
    You make a good point, but IMO this is passable because the reset counts as boot up, and the showing of hardware isn't a set-in-stone rule, more of a guideline from my understanding. Always wise to include, but the absence of which doesn't automatically mean rejection. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Samuel, if you could include a picture of your NES and the cart you used and post it here in the comments it would help to alleviate many voters worries and help get your submission passed sooner. If you plan on submitting more here, which I hope you do, try to include that in the footage in future submissions.

    Until then, Samuel. I'm going to abstain.
