Or walk under and against the second piston, as the other piston is coming down softly tap jump and you'll clear it.

The video will be available at this link eventually:
WARNING: it contains a solution for all the levels, so it's a gigantic spoiler. Consider to not watch it if you want to avoid spoilers.
It is slightly tool-assisted to avoid deaths and show only gameplay, but it's not a speedrun, I used savestates in a minimalistic way just to keep the video entertaining.

And yes the music sounds like crap in Gens Movie and many sound effects are broken.

Easily the best hack I've played. And extremely clever to boot. I am most certainly impressed by this.

Alrighty, just beat it. Thanks for another great hack, I had a lot of fun. It was a good challenge.

It seems like the lives weren't entirely coded out: if you die a total of 255 times across all the levels, the music stops and you get sent to a glitched remnant of the SEGA screen, then everything just freezes. That's no good.

Not only that, but it brought up the title screen! D:

You inspired me. After playing the hack through (and man, those last 2 levels are hard), I did do a (tool-assisted) speed-run:

Same warning applies as for Nineko's video, which is why I am linking to the video instead of embedding it.

I wish I could hear the sound effects and music as they were intended as I play; but for me, Kega won't run on Wine (needs 16-bit color on windowed, and I did not have any luck getting it to go full screen), and the Linux version refuses to acknowledge I have a sound card...

Open "~/.Kega Fusion/Fusion.ini" and change the line ALSADeviceName=plughw to ALSADeviceName=default.

EDIT: may need to turn on "use alternate timing" to get correct framerate though (otherwise it may run at like 30 FPS >_>).

Thanks, that did the trick. There is, indeed, no comparison on the quality of sound...

I ragequit at Round Trip (I suck at badnik bouncing momentum jumps) after suffering for about 20 minutes to clear Discography. No fucking chance I'm going to be clearing all this. =P

Top notch work though, I can tell a decent hack when I see one.

Wait until you reach Multiple Choice. Then you're going to know what's suffering.

You obviously didn't make the right choice. The level is very easy when you pick the correct path and technique, and very difficult otherwise. </smugmode>
