Here's a summary of his claims and how he has attempted to back them up, translated to make more sense.
If I had unlocked this course, I would have done it in at least 01:20:00.
This was posted a couple weeks ago. He assumed he could get a time 5 seconds lower than the current legit record with no actual knowledge of the level (aside from a speedrun video).
What I did was rush, but I did it faster. You skipped the shooting galleries. I did the 1 that doubles the number of rings you get and that's pretty much it.
It has been proven that the shooting galleries waste far too much time to be useful, so he's looking fishy.
He later mentioned a magnetic shield, which made me think he was talking about the shooting gallery behind the secret door since I wasn't aware of another gallery later in the level. Either way, you can't make it there in under a minute.
Not if I can use Chaos Control whenever I want to.
This probably clinches it.
Seeing as how there is no in-game method that allows the use of Chaos Control at any time without depleting the Hero gauge, it's safe to say he used a cheating device to obtain this time (don't know which one, but that's irrelevant). He later gave me his strategy.
I just did what I always do and got the first 100 rings at 20 seconds. Then, I used Chaos Control WITH a magnet shield. Then, I ended up at the doubled shooting gallery at 35"79. Then, I spent 5 seconds shooting balloons, getting 25 rings. With 51"72 on the clock and 379 rings (since I'm a good ring collector). there was a gong or whatever that thing is that gives you 50 rings right in front of me. I rang it, which finished the mission.
While it is possible to get 100 rings within the first 20 seconds (extremely hard, but doable), there is no possible way to use Chaos Control that early in the level. In addition, the only magnetic shield in the level is near the shooting gallery he mentioned. Either way, unless I'm remembering wrong, you can't collect individual rings during Chaos Control, even with a magnetic shield. His claim is that he made it to the shooting gallery in 15 seconds from the beginning of the level. That's not even possible WITH a cheating device. You get stopped at the first coaster ride in the level, which isn't too far from the beginning, and you can't use it again until you get to the 2nd checkpoint. By then, even without Chaos Control's startup time, the 35:79 will pass well before reaching the gallery.
I later asked him about his claim about using Chaos Control whenever he wants.
Chaos Blast led into Chaos Control
That makes absolutely no sense at all.
He's covering up his cheating method with methods that make no sense at all or are impossible by any means (even Gameshark or Action Replay). I don't even want to wait for his response to my question regarding his last statement. Ban this moron. There should be no doubt in anyone's mind after seeing all his claims get shot down by facts.
