I know we're a bit late with this highlight, but I believe such achievements truly deserve more attention than just a simple mention on a LJ update. At the time of writing this newspost the demos themselves are almost 2 years old. Now that we finally got a LJ update out, the jumps are official. propane pushed the limits of backwards longjumps by landing a 257. Not only that, he also landed the same block with a normal LJ. This gave him a #2 position on the LJ records list.
propane is not the only player who has landed some serious jumps backwards. Players like max3semne Beterok DeathClaw have also pushed limits in the past and gone over 255. There is a great thread on the XJ forums set up by jigsaw about backwards and sideways LJ records, definitely worth checking out.
For this highlight I've asked Nubz to showcase the jump. He was able to bring the demo to life with a smooth oldschool flow just as I expected. I also want to highlight some of the other edits that have been done on these demos in case you've missed some of them. It's always interesting to see it through multiple editors eyes, hopefully everyone also gets to see something they enjoy! So thank you Nubz and the other editors for your work, and one more time congratulations to propane for these incredible jumps.
