Top Gear 2 All Tracks Beaten in under 2 Hours!
This is the first ever proof of this game being beaten in under 2 hrs! This has been a goal of mine for the past 3 years, and now I can finally show it off.
Game Objectives:
  • Uses Bizhawk 2.9.1 (BSNES v115+)
  • Aims for fastest Completion Time
  • Abuses Programming Erros (Speed Glitch)
  • Heavy Glitch Abuse (Wall Glitches)
  • Takes Damage to save time (car Armor Diagram)
  • Uses a Game Restart Sequence (usual frame 33 soft restart)
  • Genre: Racing
This movie is one that I've been dreaming of for 3 years. This took many trials and tribulations through rigorous effort to exploit and abuse the games mechanics to get a time below 2 hrs. Such a goal was thought impossible, but alas, has now been proven to be possible. Over the course of testing around 438 branches to quantify this goal I made sure that this was going to happen whether I wanted it or not. I really hope you end up enjoying it as I did make it, it's one of my biggest passion projects and I don't say that lightly.
Tricks, Glitches, Techniques
Hyper Reverse Super Speed (HRSS)
When getting the car in a speed state that is greater than a value of 238, you can frame perfectly gear back down into Reverse and whatever speed was kept over it can't go down quickly enough to quantify a slower speed rate. By allowing the car to hit another car from the backend and also gearing up past 1st gear, the car will go past the intended speed calculation of 262 and break into the upper 400's. While going this fast, the car doesn't actually have a turning animation so to keep it from spinning/crashing I have to meticulously calculate a speed value of 342 or lower *in some instances* to have a better chance at gaining control.
Hyper Extended Super Speed (HESS)
This is a trick is used on long straight aways and allows the car to keep a speed value of 355 MPH. In order to keep this speed, the car needs to have a nitro boost active, otherwise the speed glitch will soft cap at 342 and lower drastically back to its normal rate. This makes races that would otherwise be 4 or 5 seconds longer now shorter.
Backwards Momentum Wall Glitch (BMWG)
Some tracks have a mirrored version a wall on the opposite side of a tunnel it occupies. This means that whatever side the intended glitch works on will give me a wall glitch like a normal one would. By gearing up past 238 MPH and gearing back down to reverse and gearing back up again, it will keep whatever speed is left over and go past the intended 95 MPH backwards rate the game allows. This makes the wall glitches work otherwise the speed at which you travel backwards is too low to clip.
Object Displacement Clip (ODC)
When a wall and an object such as a turn merger or a light post collide with one another and the car at the same time the car will get displaced due to the object being way to close to a wall and skips any intended area that would otherwise be unskippable. Take Toronto as an example.
Nitro Timer Extension (NTE)
Under normal conditions, the game will forcibly slow the car down to its intended rate after a nitro has been used. By timing the nitro usage at specific points, the car can't slow down past 228 MPH. This is particularly useful when going down or up a sloped surface. Take Chile as an example.
Computer Bump Speed Up (CBSU)
This is a technique used at the beginning of the run and a tiny bit later, to gain an advantage by beating the track quicker. When a computer car bumps the car from the back, you'll gain whatever speed they had at the time of the bump and jump up in speed rate for a short amount of time.
Off-Road Timer Manipulation (O-RTM)
By pin-pointing the finish line point some frames can be saved by driving off the road and into the grass. This will change how the timer behaves and will give a lower time than if the car stayed on the road.

previously published movie from 3 years ago which stood at: 2:11:59.62 @60.0988
Current Movie Frames: 1:57:21.52 @60.0988 <- actual frame rate (not 60.00)
Time Difference: 14:36 (14 Minutes, 36 Seconds) faster than 2:11:59.62

Possible Improvements: I'm sure there may be some frames here and there, but as of now I just want to be done and leave it off on a good note and not sour the moment. If someone wants to improve this sometime down the line (not me) feel free to.

Travel to Any Country

  • Travel to Any Country is a developer intended way to travel from the start of the game to the end using a stored password in memory to access its content. The game has multiple different passwords, some known and some hidden. This password is to skip to The United States allows the player to only play the last 4 race to beat the game. The game initially has 64 tracks, that of which 61 1/2 are skipped to obtain victory. The Password is: 3V53-<GPG-V<34-2H2TP-HDC33

Why the Fully Stocked Car?

  • Unlike the movie for demonstration purposes, this movie aims to beat the game in the shortest amount of time possible aka Fastest Completion. The fully stocked car allows maximum speed gain in the shortest amount of time possible.

Car Details:

  • Engine Class: 4
  • Tire Class: Wet 4
  • Tire Class: Dry 0
  • Gearbox Class: 4
  • Nitro Class: 3 (later upgraded to 4)
  • 4 = bottom right of each Class

Why Should I Care About this Run?

  • This run is a culmination of 10 years of hard work boiled down into 8 minutes of gameplay. While on the surface this doesn't seem meaningful, it means something to me. I've spent countless years trying to perfect what I consider my "Magnum Opus." All Tracks will always be a separate importance which undoubtedly is still being perfected to this day.

What is so special about this? I thought this was humanly doable.

  • Well in that regard yes, in the short answer, no. Why not? Well, RNG has to be manipulated on a frame for 1/60th of a second that of which each individual frames must follow a sequence of inputs nearly impossible for humans to accomplish. If a certain RNG pattern lands on the 4th frame of the Start press that follows, it must be pressed on the 4th frame, same with the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st possible frame prior and any other frames after.

What is this glitch I see on Race #2?

  • Race 2's glitch is what is called a "wall glitch" in the game's memory their certain flags that need to occur in a short amount of time, and if the rendered position is considered too far out of bounds the region of the wall gets its flag set to the "finish the race" position, in this case 1st. Not all walls and position act the same, some require special setups and this one requires precise timing, speed and position. This glitch was initially found by a community member by Yoschimidstu

How Come you Drive Using Manual?

  • Driving in Manual allows me to take advantage of increasing speed of the car in a faster amount of time compared to letting the game automatically do it for me using the Automatic Transmission. If I use Automatic, I can't control my speed variables and makes it, so the speed gain is significantly slower.

Where is the Money Coming From?

  • The money amount of $150,000 is coming from the password glitch which places me from a "continued" placement, despite never racing in the United States the fake placement is from identifying where the game needs to be at a current state in order to compete against the CPU cars.

Why is The United States Only Completed?

  • The United States is the 16th country in the game and the final country to beat in order to finish the game by reaching the credits.

I See You Fazing Through Objects, this seems like Cheating!

  • In fact, it's not! The game has some objects like Road Mergers to tell the player where to turn next. What the game doesn't tell you is that if you drive very carefully in-between these mergers you can go on the outside of them. Doing this, makes the turn that would have been too sharp initially, to allow me to keep speed throughout.

How Come you are Losing Frames on the Start Press?

  • I did this due to manipulating the Opponent RNG so I could have a faster Nitro start. If I were to press it on the first available frame, I would get blocked and have to drive slower. So I went through and made sure I could find the fastest possible start to a race.

How come you slow down at the end of San Fransisco? Wouldn't it be faster to keep pressing X?

  • This is where the stylistic choice comes into play. Unlike the previous movies before it, the time the game gives me will still end up being the same regardless of if I hold or release X. Cutting off holding X guarantees a faster movie, even if the initial thought would be the opposite.

I thought the movie for All Tracks "Had" to have to the A press on the final textbox where the money is counted, and the player position is shown!

  • While this is an opinion, it's not exactly required. All this does is allows the movie to be longer for no reason and makes the arbitrary input to exist. The overall difference is stopping at a "Stylistic Choice" rather than a required one. Yes, the movie for All Tracks has this and didn't include the additional point I bring up here.

Why Not 2 Players?

  • I've had the idea to try it, but, ultimately, decided against it. The game becomes less enjoyable due to sound overload and the lag is crazy to control. In Hindsight this would be a cool one-off thing, it's something that could be done sometime if I so choose.

How Come you Play on the Hardest Difficulty?

  • Hardest Difficulty aka Championship is Top Gear 2's hardest difficulty. By choosing this difficulty I eliminate any possible early cars to show up on laps 2 or 3 to change how the outcome is affected. If Normal or Easy are chosen the mode actually becomes harder the faster, you go, and not in the best outcome possible. Cars can be anywhere on lower difficulties and staying with the hardest makes the run better.

This file indicates 39 frames. What Context does this infer?

  • I labeled these 39 frames not because it's only 43 frames faster than the previous submission, but the number of frames I saved from the user file movie of 8:08.36

Possible Improvements

  • For now, none. I can't think of anything. If by some miracle that there is time save, feel free to add yourself as a co-author.
If there is anything I missed to add to this submission via text, feel free to ask.

I thought password related movies are not allowed.

  • This is where confusion comes in. You see, the game CAN allow a player to input a password if they so choose, and that alone doesn't quantify the required conditions for the rules. However, in this case, the game ALREADY stored the password for me to use, which negates any requirement to input the password manually.

This version for All Tracks beats the 2:06:06.67 movie by 22 seconds thanks to better boosting patterns, faster wall glitches and overall better RNG *except Andalusia looking at you ... that was unfathomably questionable*
Not sure if this can become any lower since the tracks with potential either have something like roadblocks on near the walls or the turn becomes too sharp to increase speed quickly, or the speed just isn't there like in the beginning of Auckland.
Happy I finally accomplished this version of "All Tracks".

a neat little side project I decided to work on, I know it's not the fast and exciting all tracks that's the norm, but, I decided to challenge the idea of: "can this be done at all in a reasonable setting"?
These are the first two countries, done on Championship Mode (hardest difficulty)

What is X used for in this run

X is only pressed to either speed up to 1st from 20th, or a lost position, or getting a better angle on 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th to keep 1st place.

What About Nitros

  1. Nitros are used for emergencies only, in the case I need to rebound off of outside objects to stay afloat in 1st place.

Q&A

"Why is minimal nitro in the title if it is slightly inaccurate?" | Minimal doesn't mean "None" in the concept of usage. Nitros are only depleted if it's needed.
"Why are you holding X for long periods of time during the first race"? | It's something I wanted to gloss over, to get the viewer's expectation high, because not soon after lap 3 do I stop holding X ENTIRELY.
"Is this movie more of a challenge run or a playaround"? | Both! Since I playaround by changing gears occasionally and not pressing X for entire races, which forces me to find new alternate routes, even if it means to crash intentionally.
For now, this is only 29 minutes of Countries 1 & 2 (will consider continuing sometime down the line).

Welcome to the most ambitious project for Top Gear 2. This movie is an improvement over the currently published movie of 2:11:59.62 This movie beats the previous movie by 3 minutes and 50 seconds. This project took about 181 days to complete or a little over 5.95068 months, with some off-time, so more so 10 months+

What's New:

1. This run not only improves the previous movie but, increases RNG's chances to be better. I had to readjust to CPU car RNG for a multitude of factors, and it just so happened to be the car color choices. Each color car choice was particularly crafted. The color adjusts to faster starts, and better bumps from 2nd and 3rd. Not doing so, would be slower overall.
2. New wall glitch was discovered in India: Delhi. This was the hardest to find in regards to saving a multitude of minutes. The strategy is so precise that, it was almost impossible to do it at all. The speed variable has to be 198. From my current knowledge, it can't be one of the following speeds: 197, 196, 200, 201, 202, or 191, etc. It has to be 198 MPH. The inputs are also so very precise, the X press and release have to be frame perfect, and the delay from waiting is so I can utilize the left lane to set up the glitch.
3. Better current knowledge glitches are improved, saving multiple seconds.
4. Better Nitro management, better speed adjustments.

This version of Top Gear 2 was created by Vic Tokai & it was released one year later of the release of the original game.
This port has some limitations, for example: the race sound has different sound options to listen
The list here for the context
Genesis version limits
Race sound:
You can listen to the Sound Effects or Music only separated.
So you can't listen the Sound Effects & Music at the same time in the game
The soundtrack has 4 tracks
There are 13 sound effects in the game
This is a Tool-Assisted Speedrun of the Genesis version of Top Gear 2 (One track only (Auckland), so this ISN'T a TAS of the Entire game)

Game Info:

  • Top Gear 2 for the Super Nintendo is a 2.5D arcade-style racing game. Travel the world, and claim to be the world's best racer. Race through *46 gorgeous tracks*. Twist, Turn, 'Jump' my way to victory.

Game Elements:

  • Each track has its different elements such as Snow, Rain, Nighttime & Sunshine.

Collecting:

  • Throughout, I'll be able to collect money which allows me to buy certain upgrades, from Engines, Gearboxes, Wet & Dry Tires, Nitros, and Car Armor. The game offers different car color variants that I can choose from, however, only the Red Car color is used.

The Route: (leaving out tracks that don't have an upgrade)

  • Ayers Rock = $10K | Gearbox 2/$0
  • Loch Ness = $30K Nitro/$0
  • Niagra Falls = $54K Engine 3/Wet Tires/$0
  • Cairo = $50K Gearbox/$0
  • Munich = $80K Engine 4/$0

The run category:

  • Filed Under: 'All Tracks' Glitched New Game

Movie Goals

  • Aims for fastest completion
  • Improves over currently published movie
  • Uses Hardest Difficulty
  • Uses Heavy Glitch Abuse

Frame Info

  • Improved main menu by 2 frames - Instead of 3 down presses, input 2 down presses | after Options, input 2 up presses
  • Better Gear Optimizing - boost with 1st gear until 165 MPH then sit in 2nd gear until 200 MPH and then gear up to 4th gear, once in 4th gear wait until 223/228 to gear up to 6th.
  • Better Driving - I improve the driving segments of the run (the most vital part lol). Less outside stripe hits, stay on the track more until leaving for required maneuvering.

Trick Info

  • H.E.N.T:
There is a special type of boosting pattern, I recently discovered called a H.E.N.T (Hyper Extended Nitro Timer), which essentially allows you to carry 1 nitro into 2 downhill sections at a time. Normally, it was 1 per nitro, but, waiting for a little extra gives more speed throughout the tracks.
  • H.E.N.D:
There is also another mini trick called H.E.N.D (Hyper Extended Nitro Delay) which is essentially the same as the H E N T, but, delays the speed loss when going downhill from 1 nitro, if the destination is too prolonged from one end to the other.
  • Turn Throttling:
Turn Throttling as the name implies, allows for the car to throttle. What does this mean? It means that when the car travels on Snow or Rain element tracks, the car sets a timer where if the car travels too fast in one direction, it starts a slipping animation. In order to negate this timer, I use Turn Throttling, by pressing Left or Right every 3 frames, although some turns require up to 7 frame presses.
  • Side Turning:
Side Turning refers to releasing gas, to pass through car hitboxes at the start of races. It's mostly used for sharper-designed tracks.

  • Australasia - Auckland, Ayers Rock, Canterbury Plains, Sydney
  • Britain - Loch Ness, London, Sheffield, Stonehenge
