Soon to be posted on speedrun.com and highlighted on my twitch channel.

Any thoughts?

That's cool. I'm kind of going for a world record myself. It's nice to know you're good at something. Especially around this place where you see contests and know you have no chance.

Unrelated question-- Is there a category for speedruns that's literally anything goes, including software assist? What I mean is, without hacks in the game, using software tools to analyze games and run them as fast as possible?

It seems like a cool idea to me. I mean, it's not a person doing it but I'd be impressed with specialty code built to beat a game in record time.

Computer controlled runs? That would be interesting.

You mean tool assisted speedruns? Those are pretty common.

Ok, cool. I mean, I've known of a few examples I've seen. I didn't know it was organized as a sport.

If you want more info about Tool Assisted Speedruns this is the website to checkout. Or speeddemos archive also has a good overview of TAS.

TAS or tool assisted speed run. Theres tons out there on YouTube, they're a fun watch too. A lot of stuff that can't be done by people
