Felt like posting this here so it might be useful to anyone interested. Attached is the any% theory TAS run of the latest RTA route (performed by Reeve). This one tackles early Wrecked Ship first and is generally (at first) a harder route than the traditional any% route that followed the intended boss order. This TAS run involves using savestates during door transitions 99% of time, to do each room as clean as possible like any top player would, and other savestates during boss fights or past certain events merely for commodity reasons and to speed up the process of doing the run.

As I previously said, it uses the "new" RTA route which was discussed and suggested by Maur, Kejardon, and the rest of the posters around 2005 in this thread, and later done by Saturn with a .smv provided in this post back in 2009.

Finishing time of the theory TAS is 40 mins and 1 sec RTA by SRL rules (ntsc). Game time was 26 mins.

I know this is old news after Behemoth's release of the sub 44 min run, but just wanted to edit the older version of this post just to clarify anything in regards to the route and some of the tips regarding most of the moves which most are no longer used anyway. Finally cool to see this route become a reality for console.

Well its time to comeback again. My previous Super Metroid any-% record is nearly 11 year old, i did it from december 2007. I finally make improve it 2 more ingame minutes.
My new personal any-% records Super Metroid PAL version

41 ingame time in 10 segments used. I might try redo my Ridley and Mother Brain segment. If i can lower one more minutes. Its might be hard because this run is very high 41 minutes. At leasta 41:50 or more higher. This is also my first recorded run ever.
0:40 IGT European version.

Estimate 0:40:55 or 0.40.59. So my run is done. I cannot go sub 40 without starting new run and new game
I improve last two segments

Its might time to try single segments runs in future. My best single segment time is 0:44 IGT and thats very old one.
Okay. Its time to make single segments runs. I got 43 minutes IGT (RTA 1:04:32) European version. Pretty good run expect Phantoon was horrible ugly, but still 3 rounds. But probably worst luck ever. So 42 minutes its might not are trouble with decent Phantoon fight. But overall this run look like pretty good and i beat my old PB run.

Edu207's PAL any% WR run has a total IGT of 00:35 ( https://www.twitch.tv/videos/216409690 ), so there's still a long way to go.
