I'd like to thank Gamepro011 for all the help during the whole run, my Twitch followers for all the support and you for watching this movie :)

Comments about tricks in the run:
With Tails, it's very easy to get to max speed, but going in straight lines can be difficult. But after some hard work, I got to finish the TAS :P
Even with less speed and less glitches than Sonic, Tails is considerably broken. By pushing him into weird geometry places or to small gaps in the level boundary, Tails can easily go out of bounds. This allows me to skip some parts of the game, like taking the Ice Stone to open Ice Cap entrance, as I can simply clip the wall near there and go to Ice Cap.
Talking about Ice Cap, this level and Sand Hill were the hardest ones to optimize, because of the snowboard physics. It's hard to keep a straight line while trying to stay on the ground. But when you get it, insane speeds are achieved. And this insane speed allows me to do another super speed trick, which is jumping twice in a ramp. Doing it in the 3rd ramp of Ice Cap with a good angle, you can go outside the level boundaries and go straight to the last section of the level, saving 8 seconds.
That one was the trick that saved the greatest amount of time, but there's another one that saved a lot of time: the gravity glitch in Speed Highway. To do it, you have to go to the booster right below the end of the 3 air dashes in the start of the level, and fly from the end of it. If done right, Tails will fly sideways, and by holding up+left in the analog for some frames, you can lock his gravity angle. This allows me to fall straight to the end, literally. By holding B, you start descending, and the longer you hold it, the faster you descend.

feos: Got it to sync, so Judging...
Ilari: Fixed the time
feos: Accepting for Moons.
Starting from power on was the author's choice because it shortens the total Tails time (this movie aims for real time instead of in-game time). So unless the movie aiming to obsolete this one is considered more entertaining, it is not allowed to increase Tails time by starting from a savestate. Moreover, Sonic time must not be longer, if not on purpose. However, if the audience likes the savestate-anchored movie more, despite of being longer, it may obsolete this one.

Why didn't you start from a savefile, which already has Tails unlocked? In this case, starting from a savefile is allowed.

Because using a memory card makes loading times be longer, as it saves the game. And as I only need to complete the first level of Sonic to unlock him, I prefered to just play without memory card like that.

Although I cannot vote and have never played the game, that was a blast! Loved it. The last level is just between insanity and yolo.

It's fast, yes, but I know Tails's (yes, that is correct usage of a possessive for a name ending in S) story is broken. Seeing how broken, while interesting to me, is not fun for me. I am happy to see this get published. I want that, but I was not entertained. I am a Meh Vote. Sorry. I am looking forward to Gamma's story. I know it will be crazy fast/action packed.

I don't think so, there's a game called Tails' Sky Patrol that's written just like that.

I will start doing individual levels, and there is a really slow project of Hero Story TAS of it. I'm not in the team, but I may help them if they need it :P

www.bartleby.com/141/strunk.html It's literally the first rule in the book on this. It's a common mistake though, so it's not too surprising to see sega get it wrong.

Am I getting it right: You do s's for any singular name or noun UNLESS it's an 'ancient proper name' then you do s'? Are plurals ending in s still always s'? (It's a bit disconcerting to have to learn something new about your own native language!) EDIT: Yes for the TAS :D My favourite stage was Speed Highway. "Help, how do I gravity?"

IMPORTANT: Can someone please change the time of the TAS? It says the input number (without loading time) and it starts from power-on. As this is a TAS of a secondary character, I need to unlock him with Sonic, and then the time should start when I soft reset the game after unlocking Tails. This should be at the frame number 8967 (input 6690). From this frame, the time according to the frame number is 20:24.57. Thank you.
Why?? Why should the input before unlocking the character not count? If it's part of the input file, it should count that as well. Infact, isn't that like me just sit in a title screen of some RPG and wait for the rng to be better before starting and have all that waiting not part of the time?

I think the screenshot @ 2:59 in the video. As Tails is walking away from the explosion of the rockets would be a great screenshot :) Yes vote.

Not quite as entertaining as the run of Sonic's story, which is probably my favourite TAS of any Sonic game, but still an incredibly obvious Yes vote. Incredibly precise, flowing movement and sweet glitch use.

Yes, yes and yes ! Nice TAS. Ice Cap & Sky Deck levels were awesome.

An easy yes :) Seeing Tails go through walls all the time confirms my theory: he's dead and is a ghost now, since the beginning! That's why he could not die in the earlier games too. Or he's just Sonic's imaginary friend... I still liked the Sonic run better, but this one has its own merits, extremely well done.
