Previously, I showed how we could use speed conservation to conserve speed from HMC to the castle, and ultimately use it to get to the Secret Aquarium 0x [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujLjEbCykOQ
]. Since then, I've received many comments from people wondering whether this technique could be used in other situations as well, primarily whether we could bring speed upstairs and save A presses entering TTC and RR. Unfortunately, such suggestions grossly overestimate the extent of where we can conserve speed. In reality, conserving speed between levels can only be done in a very limited set of situations, and so it's not nearly as useful as one might think. Consequently, I wanted to clear this up once and for all, as I explain the true extent of speed conservation.
Here is a summary of where we can conserve speed. Within a level, we can conserve speed through being in water, holding onto poles, reading text, being in cutscenes, and holding onto the owl. Between levels, we can conserve speed when exiting out of a level, dying into a game over then resuming a save file, exiting DDD through the hatch, falling off in VCutM, and going into the sunken ship in JRB.
