LBA promotion through speedrunning

So I have been speedrunning LBA for the past couple of months. I have been offering it to speedrun marathons to get the game out there. I also submitted the run to SpeedDemosArchive to get the game out there.

I am curious if anyone else in this community is interested in speedrunning LBA or LBA2? I know in 2006 there were some speedrunners of the game but it is just me now. :P

I'd say there would be some in speedrunning LBA2, different people have been messing around with different bugs to skip story part, but I don't know if there is an "official most short way" of finishing the game.

I'm actually learning LBA2 now. Because I'm pretty close to having a perfect run in LBA in the single segment format. I have seen quite a few bugs in LBA2 from the segmented run posted on the SDA forums that would make the run interesting.

I have also found a way to get off the first Island in the first game to skip getting the first magic level. Unfortunately once you get to the second island because you haven't gotten the first magic level something weird happens with everyone speaking on the island. As such the Astronomer has a flag that is set when you speak to him but with the magic skip that flag doesn't trigger. I would really like to know how to fix this so I can go for the second magic level to see what happens.

I have also found 3 Out of Bounds in LBA but they aren't very much use as you die instantly when you touch the black void outside the map.
