Sonic's gone to plaid in the latest TAS by marzojr. It starts from a savestate to take advantage of Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. (For more details, see the note below and the run's comments.)

WARNING: The awesomeness of Hyper Sonic may damage your eyes or trigger seizures in susceptible people.


Note: This movie begins from a save state from the end of regular mode in order to access Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. There is no other way to access it outside of a hack. We normally do not accept movies which begin from a save state.

To download a savestate for this movie, use this link for Gens version 11a or this link for Gens version 11b.


Note: There is an experimental hi-def encode of this run available (1920x1344):

http://www.archive.org/download/GenesisSonic3KnucklesnewgameIn3116.15ByMarzojr/knsonic3-tas-newgameplus-marzojr_1344.mkv

It was encoded using HQ3x followed by HQ2x on every frame of the video, but it requires a very fast computer to play at full speed.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- 100% completion
- Uses a suboptimal character
- Forgoes time-saving death
- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
In this run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic has decided that getting all the emeralds is the only way to go and as such powers his way through the special stages to achieve this (and a perfect ending). This run also avoids using a glitch called horizontal underflow, which is explained in the author's comments.

For those that have seen the Knuckles 100% run (or just don't like waiting around), there is a second, smaller encode that omits the emerald collection, loading/end of stage screens and removes the Hyper Sonic flash/music.

This is a hacked version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The title character is replaced by his sidekick, Miles "Tails" Prower. The levels remain unchanged.

There is more than just an appearance change to this game. Tails' abilities remain intact. If you haven't seen Sonic the Hedgehog completed before, you may wish to do so before seeing what a character with flight and a spindash can accomplish.

There is also a run for a Knuckles hack of Sonic the Hedgehog, done by JXQ. It replaces Tails with Knuckles and flying with climbing and gliding.

New tricks, more precision and tricks from the newest Sonic run combine to a movie that is 57.75 faster than the previous version.


Note: An IPS patch for the hack can be downloaded here: http://tasvideos-moviefiles.googlecode.com/files/ips%2Bpatcher.zip . It must be patched to REV 00.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD was developed to showcase a new Genesis/Mega Drive peripheral, the Sega CD.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

This run is 31.53 seconds faster in in-game time than nitsuja's run thanks to various optimization and minor route changes. For more information on the improvements, please read the author's submission notes.

There are two sets of encode files, the first recorded with the American region music and the second with the Japanese region music.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
