My favorite screenshot of all at the moment (as of Mar 27, 2007)
What screenshots and videos do you have for Sonic 3 & Knuckles?
Screenshot #31: Hyper Sonic falling at 27 pixels per frame
One challenge I frequently come up with is seeing just how fast I can get. Here, Hyper Sonic is falling at about 26 or 27 pixels per frame, just a bit faster than the fastest the scrolling will get. If you're lucky, you could fall through the ramps and pick up even more speed. With Knuckles, you can get even faster.
Screenshot #32: Hyper Knuckles in a very massive fall
In this area, I can use the ring powerups with Knuckles to get up extremely high then fall all the way back down. By the time he finally reappears on screen, he's already going 23 pixels per frame, on the edge of falling off and here, he's going 35 pixels per frame, well beyond the maximum scrolling limit.
Screenshot #33: Sonic 3 & Knuckles - Fox injured by enemy in quicksand
Fox sees quicksand and thinks it's fun. Fox jumps in and starts sinking. Tails tries to escape but an enemy hits it. One of the bugs in the game is that, sometimes, Tails will sink in the quicksand in this position, and sometimes walking.

My videos at YouTube - below are videos considered special to me that use the XviD codec.
SMB2 - Super High in Bead Screen - (cheat used: stopping the clock) Ever wonder what things are like when going 2400 mph straight up and the views you get from the extreme height (10 miles high)? Sure that kind of speed would get you to your friend's house 10 miles away in the matter of a few seconds, but the wrong scaling in the game tells otherwise. This video takes you almost to the edge of the clipping as it's that high. Once I do get tossed up, do you think I can land on the stage again and actually make the goal (considering it's practically invisible due to the extreme height and that it comes up so fast (and a bug that causes random small speed changes))? The only cheat used was to stop the clock, otherwise I'd have ran out of time when just passing 1000 mph on the way back down. This way, you can get the full experience of the sheer speed.
