Oh yeah, I watched part of that, and I remember noticing that Raymandicoot was picking the letters in order in the last part of Slick Slopes, while it's actually not required. That seemed weird to me because I couldn't think of any way to make that work in Designer. Anyway, he still beat the level in time, so I guess it's fine after all. :mrgreen:

Yes, and they're impressively good at it!

As for the recent individual levels, it clearly feels like we're getting closer to a new world record. Of course it will a lot of tries, but R1 runners have been improving a lot lately and it's just a matter of time before they get everything right in one go.

Yeah, KOR_131/swoos2 has been making some impressive progress lately, which reminds me that I still haven't gotten to watch Mr_R's run. He's getting closer, after all.

Oh yeah, I watched this last night, I'm not sure what can even be improved here! The run overall was also better than anything kronkie came up with in February for the contest. :lol:

Yeah, the RetroArch emulator eventually got banned and now kronkie's lost all of his individual level records and has to get them again on Duckstation. :confus:

It apparently runs slightly too fast, because of a higher-than-normal frame rate.

Well, despite making for a rather long run, it's a pretty cool concept. I like how practicing a little bit of all three games goes a long way towards getting you a high ranking, while it's much harder for a single game due to most people specializing in just one.
