**ATTN EVERYONE**

use c buttons to cut cinema
so if you start a level in left strafe, press up and left c to skip cinema then let go for like a frame then repress them
this is definitely faster/more consistent then using z or something else to cut cinema, I can feel the difference

Nope, they're identical (speedwise at least)

Yeah this is just you. I sometimes use A in place of Z when it's more convenient because that's not "faster" either.

Using c buttons is better. You tap c button then as long as you have released it you can press it again and youll start moving. Using z you have to wait till the level starts. Using c buttons you dont have to wait, just tap then as long as youre using same c buttons to move you wont get stuck.

I have switched from z to c buttons and i think it is much better.

According to my emulator tests, the amount of time you have to wait before holding the buttons to strafe is the same, regardless of which buttons you used to cut the cinema. Maybe humans just can't press/release/press the buttons fast enough?

I guess it's an easier movement to press C, release and then press down C again vs Z and release Z quick and then time in the C presses just right.

Yeah this is the reasoning behind it.

Henrik, the emulator tests are not the focus here, it's about what is more consistent for a human. It is much less optimal and consistent and harder for a human to PERFECTLY time the c buttons press after cutting the cinema with Z.
