I should probably write down text info on what makes my times faster explaining some details that you might not be aware of
This run was mostly the same except a few minor difference between my run and Zyglrox's run.
-Ran down the slope at the end, so I shaved a few seconds off. In layman's term. Toad moves at 5.6 up slopes, 6.4 normally, and 7.4 down slopes.
-Furthermore, Zyglrox hesitated a bit when running on the enemies moving left allowing me to take a bit more time.
-In the upwards climb, I jumped earlier than Zyglrox did in his run, allowing me to shave off some time
-Not necessarily faster, but I found a more consistent method to do the pipe clip, once you start clipping if you hold jump, you will get 4 cases, (1) clips you upwards one block and all the way right, (2) clips all the way right, (3) floats in hole twice then clips to the right, and (4) fall into those random pipes. Most likely to least likely outcomes are in this order (2)-(3)-(4)-(1)
-Also instead of jumping over the pipe, I ducked in the area I could between it.
-First of all I used toad, which shaved off a ton of time. (Accessible in episode)
-I tried to avoid every powerup I could instead of collecting them since it wastes more time getting the powerup and tanking the hit.
-In the last autoscroll section, it was pretty bad, and it's actually hell when you collect the powerup and get hit because as you can see it closes in more and more. I however used the fact the plant was above toad and the bricks to jump on the pipe and spawn bowser so he'd get squished instead of doing the boss fight.
Zyglrox's Time 2:15:834
Starry Ocean Pipes in 2:06:890 (I could have probably shaven around 10+ seconds off if I did the last part optimally but the part with a million bullet bills is just stupid)
For those interested, there is an smbx speedrunning discord: Mechdragon and I currently have a rivalry for individual levels for the invasion 2 and lowser's conquest beta. We are currently on hiatus but it is intense to watch. https://discordapp.com/invite/554myYd
