Twinsen New Personal Best (1:04:23) - Finally sub 1 hour and 5 min!

New PB at 1 hour 4 minutes and 23 seconds! 14 minutes and 50 seconds better than my previous PB. Puts me at 2nd place currently. Despite the mistakes here and there, especially at the blue card clear lake skip, I am overall very happy about this run!


Here is a link to the speedrun.com entry, where you can also find the splits.

Ooh, very nice time!

I guess I really need to do something about getting out of 3rd place now

Thank you, Doc!

Best of luck to you! Let's keep pressing down that time so that we have more incentive to practice and keep finding innovative new strats.

Thanks man! : >

I got lucky at the Hamalayi gate with the meca-jump. I didn't make it into the meca in time and that could've easily been the end of the run, as I had no backup save for this one. I went up and hit the meta, it turned around, I backed up a bit and went for the jump; damned thing worked, haha.

I did the same in my last run, looks like it works everytime but timing is hard.

Definitely a good backup strat!

Nice one.
Good to see 2 members trying to beat the records

I'm sure you will be able to go below 1h some day!

Thank you Alexfont I'd also like to thank you for LBA Story Coder/LBArchitect (and Zink too of course!), it's been invaluable in the process of finding new strats and tricks. Zebra crossing strat (sneaking past the first grobo in Lupin Burg) and the Hamalayi Pipe Trick (jumping into cube zone between Rabbibunny Village and Mutant Factory to get to outside the transporter without having the rabbit hole open).

Oh, there is one more member actually! Serializer/DocPaisley have been finding a ton of stuff too and have been instrumental as well in optimizing the routing He held the WR previous to gravel22/FreemanQC

I like your optimism! I share that as well, I reeally see sub 1 hour being close now, even if we don't find anymore big improvements to the route. Though I certainly hope we will.

Currently I am routing and finding out the quirks to Android version of LBA 1. Really is quite different, we have to go back to the previous route where we have to do the museum, rebellion island etc. again. Unfortunately they've made it so, as far as I have tested, it's impossible to do the meca-jump in the mobile version. It seems like it destroys the meca before Twinsen reacts to it being an actor/carrier.

Don't forget the new secret meca which made the blue card skip possible ... I doubt anybody would have ever found that without actually digging through the scripts!

It's also just been really interesting looking through all the game files and seeing how things work.

Oh definitely, that one was a real amazing find Doc!

I had a chance to look at both speedruns, and didn't know you could actually die on purpose to skip the walking times.

The meca penguin jump over into the Hégéssipe room or Blue card room was a great find.

Yep, the game is pretty broken now!

The death warp actually does a lot more than just save walking times - it also saves a bunch of transport sequences, which in turn cuts down on gas, meaning we actually have to buy one whole less batch of fuel, saving some money gathering time as well.

The meca glitch was a fantastic discovery ... the best skip is over the gate leading to the mutant factory, it cuts out the whole rebels tank sequence and in fact Rebellion island entirely ... meaning we didn't need the black flag which, combined with the basement skip, cuts out the museum too

To achieve the tank skip there is actually then a death warp required to complete the pipe trick which returns you to the Southern hemisphere, since the bunnies never opened the tunnel for you.

Edit: Oh, and also we now don't even need the blue card from the maze; both blue gates are skippable too

That's simply brilliant.
I definitely need to check the rest of the speedrun.
