AV MAP26 nomo in 1:34.83.
Ok guys, I need your help. This demo features a useful trick for nomo where I'm able to close the weird waterfall doors that trap you in the BSK room before the BSK platform actually lowers. I was very confused the first time I saw it happen (which was in the 1:36.06 demo I included), but I knew it could save 2-3 seconds if I could replicate it. I watched other demos on DSDA for av26, but I didn't find any featuring this trick. If someone has already discovered this is possible, please let me know. I can't imagine I'm the first one to see it, maybe just to utilize it. I was wondering how exactly it works, since the linedefs that trigger the waterfall doors closing are extremely close (4 units away or less) to the BSK platform, so normally you can't trigger the doors that early. In the instances I got it, I was running along the southern vertex of the BSK platform, where the linedefs are max 4 units away from the platform. My best guess is that I'm barely grazing the southern vertex of the BSK platform without it actually detecting collision and causing me to slow down, and that allows the linedefs to be triggered somehow? Either way, like I said, I wasn't able to get it really consistently or anything, but it was definitely a cool trick to use.
I also realize that it should be possible to do a faster but much harder trick altogether: 2 "squeeze"/guideless glides, one into BSK room, one out of BSK room. However, that involves an east glide *shudders*, and when I find even west guideless glides tricky.... no way I'm trying that in a demo.
