Tuffcracker. Absolute beast of a TASer. I will always look up to him. He's an inspiring Rookie TASer. rodonic01 A brilliant and intelligent TASer I have met since 2022/2023. I believe he deserves a vote as well. Takz15x and Shining Prodigy. Good Team work. That's all I can say.

This may be a long post so I am going slowly by each post I haven't responded.
As mentioned by others, frontloading the bonus levels into the first two levels is just boring. If the goal is to 100% the game as quickly as possible, they should have been spread out across the game more evenly, unless this method truly is the fastest way of getting all the emeralds.
Now I can understand this, because for few days I was trying to calculate how much time would it take to collect rings in some parts of the games levels and acts. I got the final time of 33mins and some seconds, but since it was slower than this. I decided to name this optimized version. Lets take S3K for example as said in my previous post. If you collect the emeralds from the start of the level and act. They collect as much as they have provided to them. The same goes for Sonic 3D Blast 100 percent TAS.
Here's my breakdown: 1) Fewer rings means less time on the bonus countdown - that is, if that matters. 2) More rings can be seen as more impressive.
Now 1 seems more likely to be understandable or better option since it just saves few frames from the bonus countdown. 2 is debatable in my opinion.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, great job on improving the main game, but everything else leaves me bored and confused. I hope things can be cleared up a bit.
Thank you for your criticism and I understand your disappointment and confusion. Maybe I would have done better in the special stages...
A question for Sonic experts: can you enter bonus levels after you already got 7 emeralds?
No, if you collect all the chaos emeralds and super emeralds if you count them as well lol, you then cannot enter a special stage again. Unless you use game genie of course lol.

Even though this run now collects all 7 chaos emeralds, it does it in the first zone, which makes the rest of the game basically the same as in [3584] Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by Zurggriff & Aglar in 17:40.08, which is probably why it's called "previous" in the submission. We use to make full completion a new branch, or we supersede one branch with another if gameplay is fully included. But here most of gameplay is included, so aside from the first zone, the rest is too similar to the any% movie IMO. Are there any opinions on branching this?
Well, if we got the emeralds in other zones as well. It would be interesting and new but at the same time, it would be a bit slower in my opinion. In every 100% I have seen so far, e.g Sonic 3 and Knuckles TASes, they collect the emeralds from the start of the level first and find the fastest way to collect the emeralds. Sure S3 100% and S2 100% are different but the strategy is the same. Collect the fastest way to get to the emerald and everything is then the same or optimized. Full completion may be right branch but I actually don't know at that point.

This is very nice to watch. I wonder, if there is an overclocked emulator and what would it look like on this version of spinball. =P Overall, it was very entertaining. And I really loved it. Yes vote from me!

Since you never use Super Sonic for anything useful, wouldn't it be better to get Chaos Emeralds in other Zones where convenient, instead of trying to get everything in Emerald Zone (having to backtrack extensively for rings in the process)? I also noticed you only manipulated the trapped animals at the end of zones only once. The published movie does this many times.
Well, we did use Super Sonic in only 1 zone only, which was Sky chase zone at the very end. You're right that I could've used other stages to get to the emeralds but that would slower than this. The capsule manipulation was done in EHZ, ARZ (but didn't went to the right), CNZ was the same as the previous movie just for entertainment purposes but yeah you have a point there. HTZ had it as well. MCZ too, OOZ, MZ aswell.

Yeah, I’d be happy if you manage to beat the MGZ boss. For now the problem is not that it takes longer than usual, but that it makes Tails want to sleep instead of finishing the act =D
oh lol. I'll try to beat the boss. And send the gmv here.

I use Github for gmv versioning. But I can share my current gmv, here it is. http://dehacked.2y.net/microstorage.php/info/1151637665/Sonic%203%20Master%20Edition%202%20DLC%20Gens%20Version.gmv Keep in mind that it’s not much optimized, most improvement comes from very different routes and strategies. You may want to redo it. I also need help with the MGZ boss, I would kindly ask marzojr or whoever can help, to explain me what’s the trick about that boss. I remember successfully beating that boss myself many times in the past, but it seems I completely forgot the right way of doing it, I only remember it‘s kind of tricky.
Might if I can try to help with that. Since every act 2 boss takes longer invincibility frames.

I’ve made a quick test run of Sonic 3 Master Edition 2 DLC with Knuckles. Sadly, I’ve stucked in MGZ because I forgot how to beat the boss (I remember it’s tricky but I forgot the exact reason why the level doesn’t end after destroying the capsule). Could anyone help me? Link to video

Hi, I want to present a little TAS (Work in progress) to Sonic Megamix (v4.0b) using Shadow, in this case. Just playing in Sunset Hill and no collect emeralds (for now). So, here upload the video that show this progress :)
Wow, your run looks very fast! How’s the progress, are you still working on it?
I see you have beaten me and Joseph lol. Very nice improvements. Just to note, Joseph's Angel Island was last year and same was my Hydrocity act 2. So not everything is optimized and since Joseph did it as a testrun so yeah. Marble Zone act 1 was done this year due to me being lazy last year :p. And Marble Zone was fast. Currently I am working on Carnival night. And would ask you, would you like to come and join the Collab. Would be fun.

So hello there forum! So I did a TAS of Knuckles' Emerald Hunt. So here is the thing about this hack, you collect emeralds around the stage and you can go to the next zone or you can unlock some other zones when you finish the given levels. pretty straight forward right. But the thing is, this game has a RNG or seed based emerald locations. Depending on what frame you enter or how you enter a level. So I want to keep this short and ask you a favor if you see and comment about it. Maybe I can then improve the my TASing skills more by that! Video here:- Link to video

Since I don't know what kind of movie it is, so I won't vote as of yet. An encode of it is useful. But in the end I want to say good luck.

Ok so while I wait for the submission comments and explanation that might come to the near future. I'll see this run sometime in the future. For now I'll won't vote yet. Good luck in the future I guess.

I would try to improve it but like I said in the S3K thread I'm unable to do any tasing for the next 3ish weeks. That tas does indeed look improvable. For one you didn't even do basic Sonic 1 movement at the start of every level which is hold <> for one frame to instantly gain 128 speed and then jump (you accelerate twice as fast in the air).
Also kaan55, these two movies are improvable in various things. So, if you want to improve these runs someday when you want, feel free! This hack really don't have much potential to be submited at here.. but it's cool visualize side by side the differences and mistakes.
Ok so I improved your run but not asumeh's run because well I got bored and I did it. I beat you in ghz, SYZ, fz. I got same time in LZ, but lost in MZ, SLZ and SBZ. Also I used lua script for TASing. Although it doesn't show the eggman hits the game is still fun to play. I recommend that hack for practice or fun reasons. Also I want to learn how to do 2 player thing.

Having a playaround during the credits scroll is typically done when people are unable to speed it up. Additionally, whilst I'm not against it personally as I find it fascinating from a technical point, using horizontal underflow in a hack like this isn't really doing much that a normal Sonic 1 play can do except quicker by using "cheats" and so perhaps refraining from that might be better from a entertainment standpoint. Just F4F.
Now tbh play around during credits scroll was intentional and I was already bored seeing the same stupid thing over and over again for the past few days. Well horizontal underflow or level warp was used because it was a any% run. And the reason why I chose this hack was this hack is fast and I love Hyper Sonic. Well I could've used normal Sonic 1 glitches but that would take too much time. So I had to find some more glitches aswell that people didn't knew of. Anyway I appreciate the feedback.
I appreciate and understand it was an any% run and as such typically people use the fastest means possible but I'm not certain that's gonna result in the best entertainment except with maybe the underflows that would be unique to Super/Hypic sonic only, such as what you did in Labyrinth 3. I'm not fully certain but that's just what I got from my viewing of it I found it most interesting when you found clips I didn't expect and had to go back and re-watch them.
These clips were hard to find but some of them were right there that people didn't knew. Now people kept saying that I was slower than DMTM'S run. And well.... The answer is this. He used a different and older version of the hack back then. And to me that doesn't count. Also recently my friend beat some of the levels that I did. He got lower time in LZ2, and few secs in a another level. Now regarding what you said Labyrinth zone act 3. I really need to obsolete the level because as in my video as well. If I obsoleted it I would've got even lower time but I was too lazy to just go back and obsolete it and the run was 2 months old so I didn't do much.
