GIZ in the context of Genesis emulators is a GIR file compressed with gzip.

I doubt the file you have has any relation, developers can name their file extensions almost anything they like.

Fixed this. The ordering was set incorrectly.

Changes will take effect when the next ring statistic is submitted.
Competition Central / Sonic Mania ranking error ?

I'm just making a quick topic to say that the ranking for the Ring leaders in Sonic Mania look like reversed on the page :

Those rankings should be fixed by descending points or ascending %. Other charts are fine for now.

That's awesome! I'm actually doing a speech on Child's Play tomorrow, so this is great that I can talk about what you guys did, if that's alright with you guys.
People have done stats with Metal Sonic in the past and probably will in the future. However, he DOES have different stats than Sonic. His acceleration, for example, is higher, but I think his fastest speed is slightly slower (at least for "walking" speed, not sure about spindashing). His turning is also different. If it were up to me, they'd be separate characters, but, here, they're considered legitimate for Sonic's stats
I had recently just gotten everything done in the game, unlocked all 130 emblems (Chao race was hard) Completed all of the missions, and ultimately unlocked him on my Xbox... But he doesn't feel any different than Sonic does, so would I still be able to submit stats for Sonic as Metal Sonic, or should I consider Metal Sonic a totally different character and not put his stats in Sonic's section?

Quality over quantity in my opinion.  The boards really come down to the haves and have-nots otherwise.  In order to make it happen though, the community needs to do a better job in revising the rules for each board on an ongoing basis.

I can agree that we should have glitchless, but it would change the entire website and probably remove a lot of stats. I understand why we should have it, but the TSC probably shouldn't do it because of this. Pros would be what you just said about Sonic Riders and I also have experience with that as I usually have to grind quite a few runs to get frame perfect glitches that really shouldn't exist. Hope this helped with both sides of the argument.

Short answer: .giz files aren't going to help you.

Long answer: What you saw us doing in the forums was using a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive emulator called "Gens Plus!" which allowed us to record savestates and input strings for playback, which results in "videos" of ridiculously smaller file size (Since the playback is merely the savestate reloaded and the inputs reissued from there). That's obsolete now, since most current-era computers can handle screen capture.

To my knowledge, that only works with Genesis/MD and Sega Master System/ GameGear games, because that's all Gens Plus! supported.
