Red Chaos Emerald Challenge
« on: May 20, 2011, 12:25:07 PM »
Thanks to the boon of new participants and incoming help from Judges, especially Flying Fox and werster, I'm now able to release the next installment again!

Also, deadlines for emerald challenges have been lifted, so don't worry if you haven't been up to date in completing them.

The color I'm releasing now is Red, and it's theme is Offense. It often involves destroying things.

If you work quickly and get aggressive, you can be done with this fight in as quickly as two or three cycles. Play it safe, and you might be taking a long time.

Red Chaos Emerald Challenge: In Sonic 3 & Knuckles, destroy the boss in Carnival Night Zone, Act 2. Knuckles is the only allowed character.

Wheel Glitch is not allowed.

You may start your recording from anytime before the boss music begins.

First time I defeated this boss as knuckles. Worked out how to destroy it in two cycles within 5 minutes, so very easy >_>

<Your offensive style showed itself when it counted, like a cowering fox devouring it's prey when the time is right =D - werster>

That was easy... but I was stupid at how I lost my rings.

<Doesn't matter if you lost your rings the important thing is you did it! :D - FF>

Did it.

<I'd prefer if you put your initials or something in your giz file names or something so we can know in a big collection who's run is who. Not really a huge deal, enjoy your emerald~ werster>

Took my time on it d:

<Watched and approved for an emerald, but you have to give initials for the emerald to be made. 3 Character limit, it'd also help if you put your name in future file names for emeralds. werster~>

Edit: Initials can be

I'm not sure if this fight was more against the boss itself or the camera boundaries...
Regardless, easy fight was easy. Why I didn't do this sooner I will never know.
Initials are

I thought doing this back in the day was the shit.


<Not sure what happened here. Your video desyncs on the last life in the middle of act 2. I don't see you anywhere near the boss. Note that you can begin your recording before the fight, so just savestate there and begin your recording from that. -SDM>

edit: Wow, I ended up way off. Stupid barrel for killing me cause I got too close (it happened on my first run, but didn't when I was recording).

<Sorry for the wait, but because you edited your post no one knew about your new giz. Better late than never - FF>

Not that easy But, found a way to get to the boss. Sorry it took me 5 mins to get there.
Put as my initials. It's the initials of my real name.
<Put initials into your post so we can actually make an emerald for you please. werster~>

<Awarded, but only just. The boss music had almost started playing by the time your recording started, please be more careful in the future. werster~>

This was the first time I've ever recorded a .giz, and I wound up re-doing it because I had a weird desync... it didn't change the outcome of the fight or even result in me getting hit, but it changed my hits from a 3-5 two cycle to a 4-4, and Knuckles didn't end up on top of the capsule after it was over. I think it happened because I absentmindedly saved the state after I'd started recording. I went back to that state and waited until after loading it to start recording (and got a 4-4 on purpose), and the second try seems to play accurately.

Couple things I've noticed:

1. I remember this fight being slow and tedious for anyone but Sonic due to the lack of Insta-Shield. Of course, back in the day I didn't know as much about hitboxes as I know now.
2. This is the first (and second) time I've beaten this boss as non-super Knuckles without getting hit.
3. I got a two cycle on my first try without watching anyone's videos. If you had bet me $20 before this I would have done it, you would have my $20.
4. I never noticed you can't climb the left side of the elevator pipe, only the right, until this playthrough.

My life needs a rewind/erase button.
