LADX Any% No WW/OOB (No S+Q) (outdated, 2015 route)

Written by mabdulra, contact him if you have questions.

In this category, you must beat the game as fast as possible without using Wrong Warps and Out of Bounds. In addition, you are not allowed to perform a Save and Quit nor are you allowed to intentionally deathwarp in a manner that emulates a savewarp. Timing starts on file select and ends when the screen fades to pure white as Link transitions from the final boss room to the Wind Fish cutscene.
