Runs should start with a blank file in slots 1, 2, and 3, as all files are used during the run.

This run is long, so it is a good idea to have food handy and plan to take bathroom break(s). Consult the rightmost column of the list of cutscene lengths to find viable cutscenes for breaks.

It is helpful to watch a top run on the leaderboard for reference when learning, as this route document can only go into so much detail.
