Starting this weekend we will be setting up a new speedrun contest for Sonic Mania! This time we will be competing in Chemical Plant Act 2 to see who is the fastest at Sonic HQ! Remember to upload screenshots for proof!

This sounds really fun! Is this a team-based competition or just an individual one? Like would we all just post in this thread with screenshots to show how quickly we beat the level?

I'd love to participate but I'm not sure if I'll be able to since I'll be going on vacation starting this weekend and won't have access to game consoles or my computer for awhile. Best of luck to all who enter though!

This one is individual based and yes everyone would post screenshots here. Havenít done a team competition yet. This is going for a whole week though, donít know if thatís long enough for you. It may get extended if not enough people participate at first.

Well there's a reason for doing more time attacks. Surprised we are skipping right to CPZ Act 2 right away but I can dig it. That's gonna be a challenging one to get good times on but I think it will be interesting to see how everyone takes it on.

Yeah mainly because I was doing Act 1 and had that spot with moving platforms where the water rises and I HATE that part. Haha also I figured skipping around would keep it fresh. This one is indeed hard to get a good time imo. Much harder than GHZ1 for sure. :D

Yeah it's gonna take some practice to get the middle parts down for sure. I just did a really quick crash course to see how I do without looking up any tips or tricks and got it at 2'08"65 so I have some practice to do to get it down further. Gotta mainly learn more optimal routes and the few skips cause I've seen some areas that you can clip through but not sure how to go about it exactly.

Well thatís a heck of a lot better than my first try! I got it way down though. The top leaderboard position is 1:28 though!! :o

Yeah I watched a playthrough of some of those really low runs. They definitely have more control in certain places that I still need to practice at. Especially later in the level where there is a small skip using one of the pipes that you can bounce up to and "clip" through the walls. It's pretty intense watching speedrunners do their thing.

Seriously? I didnít know they had to cheat to achieve those times. Wonder what the fastest time is possible without glitching.

Well it may just be us competing. I extended it to next weekend but if no one else joins I expect you to be the winner again. :D No way I'll be close.

I will say though I did beat the initial time he posted but that was his first try and I definitely don't have a ton of time to practice.

Tried to get under the two minute mark, but I could never manage to shave off those last couple seconds.

Finally got my time in. Hope it's not too late. I got it just under 2 minutes. Probably could do better with more time and practice but this level is insanely hard at certain points and I can't reliably access the speedrunners route which only shaves off like 5 seconds or so.
