: I can't remember if I ever tested that, but I suspect it's not. And actually,
: when I took a brief look at the start of a recent 343 GS run by
: GarishGoblin, he was jumping at the start, which I didn't see the use of

: fun.

: Hold on though. Watching again, it looks like he eventually is doing some

: checkpoint gets delayed, and it looks like he deliberately arranges to get
: it just before doing something tricky at the lift. However, in that case
: maybe he just didn't realize where the checkpoint was triggered, and was
: just in the habit of jumping from the start?

I know that personally I'm one of those twitchy people (which is probably why I like sprint, because then I'm actually going faster instead of just running around like a chicken with my head cut off) so he might just be doing it unintentionally :P

I know even after I knew a lot of exploits and tricks to get through the levels, I'd never actually sat down and realized how the checkpoints worked until I watched some of your videos. So as funny as it might be I can totally see someone not realizing the mechanics (especially if you start conforming your run around the checkpoints rather than the reverse.)
