Ok so i am making this so we can talk about the meme category that is hang glider % rules is use tails to hardlock on the FB 2 hang gliders as fast as possible. Time starts as normal and ends when hang glider is touched. Emeralds are not allowed. We can cave knuckles tag along for extra meme though.

Kinda disagree there. Both versions should have it to be honest.

Would getting the emeralds even be faster for such a short run?

Getting the emeralds would 100% not be faster, but having it as it's own thing could be fine, though I'd see more of an argument for NG+ than Good Ending if this does become a category with it's own extensions

Have enough people run the category. Runs themselves need to be optimized to some extent at least. An unofficial leaderboard can always be made to keep track of them until the category is added to the catex leaderboards.

Figured I'd join in on the fun. This category is quite brutal to be honest.

So Xandre and I have noticed the attention this category is getting so we've decided to make Hang Glider% part of category extensions at: https://www.speedrun.com/smce#Hang_Glider .

Tails isn't the only character that can reach the softlock hang glider so Knuckles and Ray have been added as well. In regards to the emeralds variable, it doesn't really change the run in any significant way, other than being much slower, so it wasn't included.

Just a last thing to mention too, if you guys could bring up category recommendations over to this game's category extension board (where they would much more likely be put on there than on this main board) then that would make things more organized and sensical:

Happy running the Hang Glider% category 🙂
