Re: DKC3: Minor Bugs & Glitches

A fairly old glitch, from August 2015, was just re-discovered... In the PAL and JP versions, fight Bleak, get hit and die. Just before the screen starts fading to black, press Start. If timed correctly (One frame window) the fight will be finished and you can continue to the next world. Saves a lot ...

Re: Expresso running bug

This is present for Diddy and Donkey as well. After you've landed, if you hold right/left for 25 frames, without jumping, the effect will wear off. Though you can keep the speed by jumping. I wouldn't consider it a bug though... It is however useful in speedruns and very handy when I work on my Tool...

Re: DKC: Minor Bugs & Glitches

The barrel there is the exit barrel for the warp at the beginning of the stage.

There are multiple places, both in this level and others, where the are a few pixels where you are able to stand on like that. Basically unused terrain, more or less, I would presume =).

Re: DKC: Minor Bugs & Glitches

That's the same with all Mini Neckies in the game, for the earlier revisions. None of them can actually kill you, except for their nuts.

This is also true for the regular Neckies as well, except those who are flying.

Re: Favorite Bonus Level

The second bonus in Orang-utan Gang (DKC). It made it possible to beat the game in 8 minutes, because it's the only bonus room in the game with a grabable DK barrel.

Probably a rather odd reason to like a bonus level :D.

Just noticing that the midway barrel is placed a bit too far to the right. Time to be picky :).

Re: DKC Atlas Level Mapping Project

In a 101% speedrun, it is actually faster to use warps to skip some bosses. So far no real time run is using this however, but my upcoming TAS (Which will "never" happen...) will be using it for sure.

Re: DKC Atlas Level Mapping Project

Yes, the animal tokens have a wider hitbox than the bananas, otherwise this would not be possible. It also works with DK barrels. So the bonus in Stop & Go Station will work, as it has a frog on the right side and the one in Millstone Mayhem will work as well, because of a DK barrel on the left....
