    World record without Tas is currently 18 seconds I'm not sure what the world record is with tas although both are skillfull I consider the non tas record the true record

    Wow I didn't know anybody else used the same rout I did. I was sure I had the fastest but I guess we tie. Well met.

    I used to do this every day after school vs a friend. I have a photo somewhere of 13 seconds, then 11. I think the best I ever did was 9. We played literally 10's of thousands of rounds. This was in 1995 so I did not have the luxury of recording it. I may need to try and beat these weak ass records once again.

      No you don't have photos of those times. The established real-time record of this is 19s, with tool assisting (Emulator slowdown and frame-by frame advance) it can be done in 17 at the very lowest. Lower than that is not physically possible within the mechanics of the game. Boasting is fine but please check your facts and don't make them too ridiculous.

      James, can you link to a faster attempt? We strive for accuracy, and don't want to call something a world record if there's evidence out there of a faster run.

      I went through all my boxes of photos trying to find the pictures of the times I had with no luck. I guess I will need to go through my negatives next. I picked up the game for the xbox360 and started to go at it. I was breaking 27seconds but still crappy at it. Between this and the new video it seems like I was off by 10 seconds. It was probably 23 then 21 and then 19. The run that Johnny Vicious had was basically the same exact way I used to do it, even holding the controls for the launch. He can bounce at the end one last time though and shave off more time. I only did my best run one time and on it I remember being airborne crossing the finish line. I am planning to pick up a genesis and make a go at it.

    There is no sound from the actual game play, The song should speed up when he gets the "fast shoes". Most likey used a emulator with save states.

    This isn't a record: http://speeddemosarchive.com/Sonic2.html#IL

    That site has a recording of an attempt that was 9 seconds faster. I request that this record be struck off.
