Comet Dash glitch

Found an interesting glitch, maybe usable as an exploit, yesterday while replaying. In the Ancient Grove, right after the tutorial to knock down trees, there's this corridor inside a tree with Grove Mites, right? I used Comet Dash while walking over the root into the corridor.
Somehow, I got shot much further than the regular distance, and ended up on the other end of that area!(hitting the invisible wall, unfortunately) I fell into the acid and got put right back where I was, but I wonder if this can be used for speedrunning by skipping past puzzles.

Heya Bifrost

Yeah, you can. A lot of the invisible collision walls and the acid underneath is what we called the 'oil pan' back then. It's a collision box with a hurt ID to bounce the player back to the last position before they jumped, though has to be solid mesh, and not a floating prop. A lot of the QA guys worked out how to jump off flying dynamite and all sorts of things like that for their speed-runs. The translate on the animations on some of the attacks from memory was deliberately longer than jump to help with some advanced exploration, and I think there was a way to juggle enemies to skip up some jump platforms.

... it was a long time ago
