    Thought this might be interesting to some of you. I have seen a couple of topics about glitching Sonic games, anyway.

    I'm starting something I did a long time ago over again -- glitches and oversights of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Going in order this time, starting with Angel Island Zone. See stuff you may or may not have seen before! Find out subtle differences between Sonic 3 and S3&K! Join along why don't you?

    Inspired by Xkeeper's Link's Awakening LP, there are now in a new annotated format. Leave them on to maybe learn something! Turn them off if they're really annoying and stupid!

    Introductory video / basic techniques.

    Looking for a Rom Hack to Test.
    You also did the cool Video showing the 255 Lives glitch in Sonic 1 (Various Versions) and Sonic 2's Aquatic Ruin Zone :)

    Good video by the way!

    Ah, I knew I'd got back into AIZ1 from Act 2 back in the day! Thank you so much for showing the method. And the other cool stuff :v:

    Nice job, you found some very interesting glitches, some of which have already been posted on the Internet, but most of them I've never even heard or seen.

    Great job indeed, looking forward to your future videos!

    I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting this big of a response. I'll get to work on Hydropolis Hydrocity now.

    That was quite something. It's amazing how many glitches in this game can be beneficial and/or pretty damn cool, and you don't even need Debug Mode. I've seen some of those before, but most of those are new to me. Looking forward to more! :D

    Here's a question, did you find most of these glitches on your own? Stuff like the goalpost-act 1 music glitch I've read about on the Internet, but other things such as the glitchy title screen were news to me.

    Most of the glitches in that video I found on my own. The method of resetting of the Act 2 boundary I found based on a post someone made in this forum. The first glitch in the Angel Island video was something I saw in a TAS video. I knew about the act 1 music glitch before, but I didn't know that it was different between Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. The tube rejection I've seen a couple times before (it took a while for me to get it to consistently happen).

    And I think the last glitch/oversight/whatever is common knowledge.

    Does anyone know of something like Windows Movie Maker that lets you compile different movies together but lets you save stuff at 60 FPS and is free? For some stupid reason WMM is limited to 30. The raw footage is at 60 so I'd like that retained.
