I made this while testing my Cheat Engine script. I found a couple bonks that gave me extra speed. Not sure how good the ring route I took was. The only real improvement I can think of would involve grinding for better AI movement to get enough rings for an earlier boost. Soon I'll work on the other two kart stages, and then I'll try to make a godly R280. Link to video

Nintendo 3D TAS of 2015
Hi I'm doing things for this game again: First off this new zip that Flossy found in Death Chamber seems to be possible in other places as well, though considerably more specific. I don't understand what is required to make it happen but I have found place in Security Hall it can be done now: Link to video Link to video Link to video And here's a new Eternal Engine skip that is faster than the Dreamcast method and works on all consoles: Link to video It also turns out that wallrun/gravity skew from dismounting a wall is considerably more lenient than I thought, here's some new stuff with that: Link to video Link to video Link to video Also Mystic Melody Warp animations can be skipped entirely with perfect positioning: Link to video And lastly here's the completion time of Sand Ocean in the Dark Story TAS:

New IL by THC98 and me Link to video
Rerecords: 3718 The main purpose of this video is to showcase the hunting character momentum tech that was discovered over this past summer; a variant of downslope abuse which can be done using flat ground and wall dismount gravity skew. I'm in the process of writing a video essay explaining Hunting character movement and will dedicate a sizable amount of that to explaining the terms just used. This trick is essentially the same as the Hunting character wall dismount wallrun, but rather than run on the wall, you drill into flat ground and convert the downward velocity to forward. This trick caps at roughly 5 positive speed, whereas punch acceleration gives 3.15. I also wanted to make this video to show off THC98's new and much improved input and address viewer.

Would the trick in that video work for Knuckles too, or can it only be done as Rouge?

Hey! I'd like to announce that we created a Discord server for SA2B TASing. Anyone that's interested on TASing the game, regardless of skill level, is welcome! Discord invite link: https://discord.gg/fMZCAgh Also, we have just started using a Dolphin build that supports LUA scripts to TAS this game. This makes several boring parts in optimization be done waaay quickier. So this is probably a good reason for more people to get interested in this game :) Details of this new Dolphin build can be found here.
