For the boss fight: Try to use the tactic the TAS and my testrun used, it really isn't that hard to pull it off.

You could take some Heart Containers I guess. The one in Wing Dungeon is the fastest one to take. I doubt that you'll need all of them.

And don't really expect anyone else except me to help you out with the run, as I don't think that most people have enough interest of experience with the game.

I haven't got much time to work on the route and such now, lots of stuff to do including homework, but I'll try to get it done eventually.

Phew, finally got it.  Took the HC to recover health.

I'll have it up soon, along with a reupload of all my other segments to fix the minor cropping issue (ie the top being cut off)

I tried to do some sequence breaks with the warp glitch, but there are a few pixels away from being possible. That would be if you manage to pitwalk for about 4 frames while the rest before it is frame perfect as well, but I doubt it Tongue.

Anyway, I've started a testrun and played up to Moonlit Grotto. Can be seen here. I'm going to write down stuff as well, but now you'll have something to work with.
There should have been a save before the Wing Dungeon, but I just forgot.
And I'm unsure if the puzzle at the end of Wing Dungeon is optimal, I just did what I usually do there. So feel free to try different strategies.

Can't watch the Testrun atm because microstorage is down...

I was trying to bomb boost over holes, but the only times I got completely over were on deaths...  I'm pretty sure it's impossible or ridiculously hard/frame-perfect.

Oh, added the playlist link to the first post.

Looked good. Enjoy the Wing Dungeon, the reason why I quit my run awhile ago.

I'm going to continue on my testrun as well.

It's the fourth that's gonna suck.  This should be nothing. Smiley

I spent an hour and a half failing to get a sub-minute segment...  God I hate using the shovel.

Also, I've looked at the boss fights, and I've made a shortlist of the best and worst HCs to get.

In order, from best to worst:
Head Thwomp (Wing Dungeon/2)
TIED: Pumpkin Head (Spirit's Grave/1) and Eyesoar (Skull Dungeon/4)
Smog (Crown Dungeon/5)
Shadow Hag (Moonlit Grotto/3)
Plasmarine (Jabu Jabu's Belly/7)
Ramrock (Ancient Ruins/8)
Octogon (Mermaid's Cave/6)

The one in Wing Dungeon is extremely close to the ladder down, therefore a must take (as we are using HCs due to the overwhelming number of damage source, as well as your frail health due to the L-1 Power Ring).  Spirit's Grave and Skull Dungeon's HCs have the door located at the top of the screen, which is a shorter distance than the side.  Smog's door to the essence is located on the upper wall, but there is a block in the way.

The remainder of the bosses all have their doors located to either the right or the left.  Shadow Hag wins out because you are walking as opposed to swimming (swimming's slow acceleration makes it slower than walking over such a short distance, as I am an awful button masher).  Plasmarine's is also a straight shot, but uses swimming.  Ramrock's is located to the left and down from the HC spawn location, making the distance slightly more than the other two.  Octogon takes last because you should win the fight underwater, skipping the death scene and therefore (hopefully) putting you close to the door upon his death.  If said fight finishes on the left side of the screen, the HC becomes a very good choice.

I sound like a fucking TASer, I dont think the difference between the fastest and the shortest is any more than a couple seconds.

EDIT: I just bought Seasons and LA off Ebay, so if you guys are open to it, I wouldn't mind tackling both Ages and one of the others, and both desperately need new runs.

Tompa: I will make you a guarantee: if I beat your Seasons run, you don't have to worry about paying me that $20 bounty you posted on SDA. Smiley

Don't forget that you can use the Pegasus seeds for the later HCs Tongue. Not that is that worthy to use one there though. I don't think you should take more than two HCs, it should be plenty enough.

Would be awesome if you did any of those two as well. Makikng a sub 2 hours OoS run is simple, I'm just putting up the bounty so that I could easier get rid of the run from SDA.

Good luck with WD.

I'm in a bit of a predicament here.  I got a segment 10 with a time of 50 seconds, due to only OK luck manipulation with the last room.  The spikes could have gone maybe a quarter second faster, I'm not stressed over that.

The major problem is I'm down to half a heart health.  Do I let you guys see it and manipulate some health in the next segment (which should be a great deal easier than this one), or try again until I emerge with a bit more health?

Any and all input would be appreciated.  Just pointing out that a hit from anything will kill me right now.

It should be that hard to get hearts in the next segment, as there are several of ropes and keese to kill and it is easy to not take damage. And it's a very short segment as well.
However, if you think it looked bad that you took that much damage in the previous segment, and that you think you can improve it further, why not try it? If you aren't able to do it, then just keep on going.

I'm usually finding them on Youtube first anyway, and if I have something worthy to say I'll write it here or else just make a stupid comment like I did this time Tongue.
Only minor things would be to pick up the bomb earlier and to not delay at the moving block.
