Well, that looked interesting, and the HC1  boss looked hard :-)
It would also be pretty frustrating as there might be many situations where you have only one try and no chance to suicide to re-attempt the level.

Another idea, mainly inspired by Master Blue:
Finish a S1/S2/S3/S%K (your choice) in 5 minutes. You gain an additional 5 (10?) seconds for each monitor you opened. This would force players to play fast but they can´t take the standard routes.
There are also many variations of this theme, like giving different time bonuses for different monitors (e.g. extra life = 30 seconds, ring box = 0 seconds, etc.).

I think for the No Left or Right challenge it would be fair to allow you to use them to kill yourself if you got stuck.

Yes, thats what i assumed too.
I wanted to say that there are still situations where you are still stuck, but then i could think only of one (Killing a boss and then "accidentally" jumping over the pillbox, which should not really happen ^^), so i guess thats ok.

I have one.

Get a score of at least 1,000,000 in Sonic 3 and Knuckles without using special or bonus stages.

By your powers combined, I have 7 Chaos Emeralds!  And 4 Super!

Might want to add that you cannot use debug mode either.

I guess that would come down to a massive ring attack run.

Or a massive "lousy play through the first 5 zones followed by a quick rise to 1000000 and beyond in zone 6".  It's not like building a chain of 113 enemies is hard or anything.

Alright then.

Play through Sonic 3 and Knuckles and get 1,000,000 points WITHOUT Debug Mode and the Badnik spawning gimmick in Launch Base.

Then I got a good one for the Gold Master Emerald.

"Play through Sonic 3 and Knuckles with a friend controlling Tails.  NEVER have Tails fly back down unless it's unavoidable.  (Hidden Palace Sky Sanctuary teleportation devices for example.)"

You can probably avoid even that, actually, using the screenwrap glitch to skip the teleporters. Granted it'd be difficult to stay close when miles off the screen but I'm sure it can be done.

Another variation on the "collect few/no rings"-theme:

Start the second act of a zone of your choice in S3&K with a lightning shield.
Do not lose the shield or change to another shield.
Finish the act with under X rings.

First of, Sorry if this has been posted before.
Second, I dont know if this is ok.
Third, I dont know what emerald it would go under.

Anyway, The other day i found a glitch in S3&K which (Using debug mode) allows you to spawn 3 mecha sonics. Beating one cause instant completion but it is a challenge. To do it activate debug mode and go sky sanctuary with sonic or tails (And also knuckles can be gotten into S&T's sky sanctuary by debug so him aswell i guess). Get to the teleporter thing that takes you to the final fight with mecha sonic but dont go on it. Instead go debug mode and scroll through the objects till you find the teleporter there (Dont place one yet). Now turn back to normal and hop onto the teleporter. Once you fall to the ground turn to the teleporter and place two in. Two more metal sonics will appear. Now turn to normal and attempt to beat them. If this seems to easy you can try four i think. Anyway there is one thing that is an annoyance. Once you beat one you win but the other two remain active. On the cutscene that follows it is possible to get hit and die. So if the challenge was to be accepted make it so you just need to beat one and then wait for the act complete to appear. Or if you want to make it a challenge of luck aswell you can make it so you have to get sonic to complete the cutscene aswell. Its hard to do the fight but ive done it and also got sonic to finish the cutscene aswell on SMC+. The death egg goes different colours though when you see it in the sky.

^^ That'd be a simple case of getting a bubble shield from a check, then bouncing continually till you kill them all, then letting Sonic land normally.
Did you not think I had a mind?

well then the challenge could be do it with no bubble shield. I did it with none but i got to the cutscene by like since both mechas were about to dash at the bottem but sonic jumped just in time. Bu all of them begin to flash (with bits of electricity cause the dead one does) and for some reason so does the death egg.

Or Launch Base 1 sirens.
Also this challenge seems like a challenge of stacking lives, then dying and regaining the points you earn each run through.

Why not do some Sonic CD Challenges. you can get the iso of it from sonic strike and play on gens +. Maybe start some time stone challenges or something or use it for the master emerald challenges.

.giz's dont work properly for Mega CD games, and simply recording an avi racks up an enormous file pretty quickly

Well, isn't there a proposal here for a project to do a mod for Gens to improve recording for competition purposes? Could a .giz fix for SCD games be worked into that?

That would take too long (if it even happened) to be applicable to these challenges, though, of course.

Is it ok to start my own challenge??

Its called the Omega emerald challenge


The diffuculty for each challenge ranges from Hard-Expert(or god) diffuculty

Also each one will have 1-4 charatcers working together to get one Omega emerald at a time

Game selection for challenges range from...Sonic the hedgehog 1-Sonic Heroes(flash made games will not be used)

So is this a good or bad idea??
However much i am accused I am what i am...a true heroic weird kid

Well first off that depends if you mean real or game time, what characters you can use, bug exploits, etc. Although I doubt that that total time is possible even with TAS. You're on the right track though so keep the ideas coming.

there are only 3 LEVELS (Zones)...

and your times suggest otherwise... perhaps you should do some runs and update your present stats?

Maybe something like that: Finish S3K with all Chaos and Super Emeralds. You may not receive more than 34000 points(quick calculating, plz test if that's even possible). You may not die more than 2 times and you may not use an other character than Sonic(alone). You have to defeat at least 30 bosses.
