-Autoscrolling sections removed
-New tech to skip vehicle sections
-Various other sections of levels have been modified for brevity and consistency

Special thanks to Golden Yoshi for creating SMW2+2, and to the GYI Team for helping to make this game possible.
Nice to see it's been completed. Is there any word if trihex will speedrun it for AGDQ?
Not for this one, sadly.
Maybe at a GDQ in the future though, or at another event!
Marathon hype! Pleased to announce that Golden Yoshi's Island will be making an appearance at Speedrun Chaos, August 17-19. This will be the first time GYI is showcased at a major speedrunning event, so come check it out if you're interested! Trihex also plans to submit it to GDQ Express at TwitchCon 2018.

We've worked hard to update the hack in order to fix the major issues present in the previous releases and reupload to the site. The download for the hack is currently awaiting moderation in the YI Hacks section. It should be live again reasonably soon.

Thank you.
What great news!

Where is the event? Will have to check out the footage.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances, Speedrun Chaos has been delayed. The event will now run from Nov 30-Dec 2.
Speedrun Chaos has been cancelled. Instead, check us out at Mario Masters Colosseum on October 31st!
Reminder that you can catch trihex running Golden Yoshi's Island tomorrow, noon PDT, when day 3 of Mario Masters Colosseum goes live on!
