Before Sethbling, there was Jeffw

The recent Credit Warp WRs for Super Mario World have come somewhat out of the blue with Sethbling seemingly being the only person being able to successfully complete a run in this category. But before Sethbling's console runs there was another speedrunner by the name of Jeffw, who as far back as July of last year managed to get a time of 4:59 on the emulator version of the game.

Jeffw also wrote the overwhelming majority of the current Wiki article entry for the Credit Warp and gave a demonstration for the strats involved:

So while Sethbling has and will most likely continue to improve the current Credit Warp any% category for the console version, I think JeffW deserves some credit, pun intended.
