I've seen a speedrun of the game (22:38) and cosmo(the player) does this weird positioning back jump that let's jump break through the first floor net and lands on the HIGHER platform of the 1st basement, letting him go straight to the boss while skipping the rest of the dungeon.

Anyone know how to do it? I've tried multiple times and only gotten it twice(shame cause I messed up the boss battle and had to restart from the beginning of the dungeon).

Here's the video to prove my statement: He does the positioning back jump at 13:00.

Thanks for your help.

I really thought there was a better tutorial around somewhere but can't seem to find it :\

There are 3 main motions to the trick:

1) Lining up and jumping from the top floor
2) Sidehop while on the web
3) Jumpslash after the sidehop

That video description gives timing for each of these, though it might take a bit of practice to get used to.

If you're just trying to skip the floor there are other options you can use (jump to ledge, vine clip with skulltula, megaflip off deku baba) which you may or may not find easier. I dunno how these interact with the wrong warp though so if you're planning on that then I'm not sure these are really in consideration. If you're not trying to do the wrong warp though, keep in mind that you can always push the block off after a success so you don't need to do it again if you die to the boss or something

There may be some stuff of use in here: though it's fairly long and I haven't watched it, so no guarantees... EDIT: I looked at it a bit and it seems like just the thing you'd want. Also has convenient timestamps in the description so you can get right to the useful part

Obviously the problem is already solved before bringing the gameshark levitation code into play, but I did want to mention that with it, you can actually do a cool-looking thing where you can fall through both spider-webs. Fall through the first one, hold L before you hit the water, and hover over to above the second - you retain your fall momentum, and crash through the second web instead of burning through it with a lit deku stick.
