I had never thought about that Dean, but it does make a lot of sense; basically you can gain 2 vertical pixels (⌂Y) over the course of a "broad jump"so you'd want to, ideally, get one of the pixels at the beginning of the jump (allowing a later departure) and the other at the end of the jump (around the left edge of the last trailing barrel).  I would say that I have NOT been actively jumping from spots that are "conducive" to this effect, perhaps even larger jumps are possible.  So, essentially any up-hill running jump is going to gain a minimum of 1 vertical pixel, I'd imagine (no knowledge on debug) that statistically speaking, a 2 pixel jump is less common.

Dave, I remembered reading that barrel speeds were consistent, but I had often wondered if the slopes of the girders changed, thanks for that clarification.

I am adding another 2 videos; large jump(s) 4 and large jump 5.  I think that large jump 5 may be the largest yet, although there were fewer barrels, it looks like jump 5 only had a  ⌂Y + 1, implying there is potentially a bit more room.

Large Jump(s) 4 http://www.twitch.tv/f_symbols/c/3522830

Large Jump 5 http://www.twitch.tv/f_symbols/c/3522859

EDIT:  I just noticed that at the end of "large jump 5" (last jump) there is a good example of a ⌂Y+2.  Also, I've added a photo from just prior to takeoff.

During a fit of spastic rage, following a death on 2-1  ::) , I discovered (accidentally) that you can do a 2x100 on the Blue Barrel.  I'm not sure if it is applicable for later levels, but it was a pleasant accident.

Nice.  Meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out an item from your signature:

dk wreckerds: 3 jumps, 1 barrel, 1100₧

Can you help me understand that one?

No problem Scott. 

It was on 1-1 near the bottom hammer; I had two fireballs to my right and an approaching barrel from the left, I got a 500 pt leach while jumping from right to left over the barrel and the 2 fireballs gave chase, they were nearly "frozen together" but not quite overlapping and I managed to get two 300pt jumps while heading left.  The 3 jumps were back to back to back, as soon as I hit the ground.  Ultimately I got hit by a barrel coming down the long ladder from the 3rd girder (avoidable).   It's in one of my past broadcasts somewhere, but I never highlighted it and finding it at this point would be a nightmare.  FailFish

No need for a KS without first having a huge game to end it with.
