Routes

Under each tab is a route for BfBB Any%, with the strategies getting progressively harder with each further route. Choose the route that is best suited to your skill level and the strats you are capable of.

Under each route writeup, there are the level names. In parentheses, the first number is the amount of spatulas that should be owned at the end of the segment, and the second number is the amount of socks. Under the level name is listed every objective that should be collected in that segment, in order. If an objective is numbered, it is a spatula. If an objective is listed with a bullet point, it is a sock. Inside parentheses are any notes about the segment to help understand the route.

Attached with every route is a set of splits for Livesplit that use the route, if you wish to use them.

Important: If you plan to use the autosplitter that is compatible with Dolphin, you MUST activate the autosplitter in LiveSplit before saving the splits file, or the configuration will be lost.
