Item Abuse help/Walkthrough

Guess what? I just made the Hardest Super Mario World ROMhack level in the World!!! Yep, it's harder than Kaizo Mario World, Kaizo Mario World 2, and even Pit of Dispair COMBINED!!! Here's the latest version, Item Abuse v1.5.

This hack level includes:

-Custom Palettes
-Original SMW GFX
-Original SMW Sprites
-Original SMW Music
-16 Mini Rooms
-Required time to beat the level: approx. 900 sec.

*No one except the creator has beaten the game yet.
**If you managed to beat the game, then you are abnormal.

If you are stuck on any part of the level, leave a reply and I can help you.

EDIT: Item Abuse v1.6 just updated some stuff.

EDIT2: Item Abuse v1.7 Final Release!!!
Look at this 8 year-old layout that I should probably update.
Still can't do the block thing which is rather annoying as I would like to see what the other "rooms" are.

Thank you very much, any chance of knowing when the TAS or TAW will be on youtube for this ?

Meh, this discussion probably could've fit in with the Kaizo thread, but whatev.

I'm not doing any video playthrough of this like I would most of the time with games/hacks that I'm showing off, but this was still wtf enough that it has become a topic of conversation in a Skype chat that I'm regularly in, and so whenever I make any progress or see anything that's like "what?!?" I try to take a snapshot on ZSNES and show it to them.

So more or less, if you want sort of a little "snapshot walkthrough" of the saga, you can check this link and I'll probably be regularly adding pictures until I finish the level:

Also, I'm playing this on v1.4 of the hack, not 1.5... and like hell I'm gonna redo the first room. Any SIGNIFICANT changes between the versions that would warrant me switching before I get too far into this?

Whenever I get to the end of this. If you know Panga, he posts videos in video dumps about every month. So, I'm likely going to be the one who makes the TAS. I'm currently at the midpoint.

...Oh God, please help me.

EDIT: Oh, and romscout, the only difference between 1.4 and 1.5 is a background change, so don't worry.

Yeah, and guess what? In v 1.6, I've added invisible coin blocks as well so it's wall-jump proof. XD

Oh my God...

Guys, I've finished my TAS of Item Abuse. Needs to be edited slightly and still need to upload it, but I've finished it. I never felt so happy...

EDIT: It's here.
