TAS - Xka Shack "107%" in 03:29:67

As some of you may know, TASVideos hosts TASes (tool-assisted speedruns) of a couple of SMW hacks. I don't believe the site would accept a TAS of just any hack, so if you see one there, you know it's good.

Enter Xka Shack. This SMW hack was made entirely through patches and xkas, and features semi-randomized levels. For this reason, it has proven difficult to TAS. But a user by the name of DarkMoon determined how to manipulate the RNG to get the best "randomized" levels and uses this to beat the entire game, 107%, in just under 3:30.

Click the picture below to see the TAS. But be warned: if you haven't played Xka Shack, it will be difficult to tell what's going on.

I didn't even know long jumps were possible in SMW, let alone the backwards kind!

This DarkMoon guy's a frickin' beast!
shirt status: not on
Wow. I was kind of expecting him to take advantage of at least ONE glitch to get that score in that time, especially given the hack's content.
That is totally amazing.
Check out my music!
Oh wow.
Later.
I stopped at 1:23.
Man, I suppose it's really those milliseconds that count.
spoilers guy
DAMMIT! I thought I held the world record for this game!

Forget the TAS, I'm more interested in DarkMoon's avatar there.

Unoptimized. I think I've once manipulated the RNG in this hack in such way that I had goal sphere just below myself, and beat entire hack without pressing buttons, in one frame (this hack skips directly to the level without title screens, so it works).

If somebody doesn't believe me, I guess I could upload my one frame movie. It uses lsnes, unlike lol deprecated Snes9x 1.42.
Legacy ports zip (now that those went down because Dropbox)

"DarkMoon" is Alexander btw, I know this because I made him that DarkMoon logo a while ago.
