I'm glitch hunting in SMG2; is there anything specific I should look for or be aware of?

the main thing you should try to look for is gravity from certain planets although I think the community had already found the most of them, but keep trying, there still might be some! 🙂

Yeah, right now I'm doing something completely unviable for speedrunning. I might have found a way to skip the first "big boo" trigger in Haunty Halls 2nd Star. Not sure if it will work, but I have time to kill @CreepyGar

okay, try to send me a video of it if you can do it

I FOUND SOMETHING! It's nothing major, but I soft locked the game while looking for out of bounds collision in Cosmic Cove Galaxy. It also, for some reason, allows you to spin infinitely with no recoil if you hold the control stick in a certain direction. How do I send you a video?

 
  CreepyGarCreepyGar

just upload the video to youtube or twitch and send a link in the forum post

@CreepyGar I now realize this can be done on any of the bushes in the area, but only the no-recoil spin part. I could not recreate the softlock again.

and when you go out of the bushes you arent able to spin infinitly or do you? because if you would that could be used in the 2nd star to skate faster

I don't think so because
A. It occurs because you are constantly going on and off a slope
B. In the video's case, you can't escape the grass

It's a fun glitch then that is definetley worth noting and mentioning in an SMG2 glitch video, but unfortunatley i dont think this will have any further help in the game, i do am amazed that you found a glitch that soon so make sure to keep up the good work! 🙂
