Poodleskirt recently determined through some awesome statistical analysis that if you have 5 or fewer bombs in your inventory, your % chance of getting a drop increases: http://forums.zeldaspeedruns.com/index.php?topic=20.msg16644#msg16644
I put it to good use here, haha!
[15:50] <poodleskirt> you should consider testing some sort of death warp CS skip
On 2/19/12, that death cs warp was found, leading to a strange wrong warp, which led to warping to the credits.
This is how I get through both crawlspaces.
The first one is really stupid...seems like half the time I clip and half the time I don't. No idea what causes it and I've messed with it for a long time.
The second one for the hookshot clip: You don't have to buffer to the bomb explosion, it's actually fairly easy to just time it, but I would recommend pausing for the hookshot clip at least.
I will probably do this in 100% RTA runs, since I was already doing the first one.
Here is my entire deku tree, where I try and solve this puzzle. http://i981.photobucket.com/albums/ae296/Samura1man/puzzlerace9.jpg
I have only quit one race ever, and it was a puzzle race a long time ago. When I got here and the hammer didn't work I was very discouraged. It was amazing to solve this puzzle and I really don't understand quite how the scrubs work but I was able to do it and I finished first.
