The problem is that you spam. Mario gets the most "speed boost" at the end of the swim animation. If you spam you start a new animation before the previous ends and so you don't get enough speed.

You can hear if you made a good swim because then the sound is a bit different.

this is so stupid , adding achievements that require speedrun strats on itself seems like a bad idea plus the input delay on emulators doesn't make it better

Mute the game audio, and google a metronome at 89 bpm. You can swim perfectly if you time your presses with the audio. Then go play Rhythm Heaven while ur at it lol

SlimyPennies Thanks A LOT for this tip.

I have to agree with hypelastika here. Achievements like this do not belong in a set like this. They should be in a bonus set, since those sets usually have achievements that require glitches or tricks to get.

I concur, this one is just plain dumb. Speedrun inputs for an achievement ? I'll pass.

Wow, that Metronome idea from Slimy worked really well. Love the set Spory, it's impressive what creative challenges can be made.

The Metronome method worked like a charm. Got it within the minute of turning it on.

This was pretty easy, I literally got first try and wasn't even paying attention to the BPM tapping, it's so dumb how people simply can't do simple things as pressing a button with good timing and start calling "speedrun strats" lol

in addition to the SlimyPennies' advice - swim right near the bottom of the pit towards the center of the jet so it will push you right to the star
