LA/LADX new glitch
« on: April 12, 2014, 04:39:35 AM »
Hey everyone !

I've found a new (?) glitch in the B&W version of Link's Awakening that could be, if accepted, very useful in the speedrun.
I made a video in order to explain it :

I'm sorry for my bad accent and for the bad quality of the sound.

If you don't want to watch the video here's the thing :

When you defeated Grim Creeper in the dungeon 7, you usually go up and take the boss key. If you go to this up room while jumping, you will enter in a glitched room. If you do that correctly, by jumping toward up AND left, you'll be warped in the Magic Rod room, in the dungeon 8.
The thing is the way to do it makes you use a glitch that looks like the doghouse glitch. That's why I don't know if it will be accepted.
The second thing is that I've found it on a french version. I tried it on a US and a Japanese ROMs with Visual Boy and it worked, but I don't know if it really works on these version anyway.
I also tried it on a Japanese DX version some days ago and it worked as well.

What do you think about it ?

Congrats on finding this :), but this is actually a very old glitch. It's also not allowed/useful in speedruns because it is considered a warp, and for categories with warps it is too slow.
