    Warr1or2: Sorry to say bud, I've had little to no main issues porting over HPZ outside of a few things here and there, namely the collision being wonky as I'm too lazy to fix it or port over the level checks for the various collision maps. If you follow the guide perverbatim, you should have a new level no problem. It boggles the mind how you have this many issues.


    Project FM: Why bother porting the Sonion 128 stuff? From the look of your screens, you've made very minimal changes to Sonic 1. Why not just port your changes to Sonic 128? Less problems that way.


    Edit: Holy Fuck. My phone loves to auto-correct.

    It turns out that the original build of my hack also had the same problem so I'm going to take SuperEgg's advice and port the coding in my hack to the Sonic 128 file instead of doing the opposite. Thanks anyway.

    ok this isn't a disassembly problem but something with the forum (i think this is the right place to put this)

    i'm trying to add a guide to the guides but when i added it nothing changed. is it still being added or can i not add guides since i'm still a trial member?

    Wrong forum to post that. Plus, it wasn't approved because it ain't up to snuff.

    Hello.

    A long time ago, I used the water guide, and failed at it. I decided to remove the code and paste the original back in. After doing so, LZ1 has no water, LZ2 and LZ3 have water (I think LZ3 water position is correct, but LZ2's isn't), and SBZ3 (LZ4) is full of water. i tried re-pasting the original code and stuff, but it does not work.

    If anyone knows what the problem may be, post it here. Thank you.

    I recommend using a program like ExamDiff to find the differences between the water code of your sonic1.asm and the water code in the sonic1.asm of a clean disassembly.

    Thank you so much!

    The problem turned out to be the fact that I moved $FFFFFE10 to d0 instead of moving $FFFFFE11 to d0.

    How do the mappings for Sonic and Tails jumping off the plane in the ending of Sonic 2 work? When I load the art and mapppings in SonMapEd, they do not show up properly.

    Hello, I'm not sure if this is a result of my own coding clashing, but i tried out the palettes for different characters tutorial on the website and I ended up with this:

    [​IMG]

    The turquoise is intended but the purple isn't, it doesn't use the proper yellow colours until it starts transitioning to the level itself (though oddly they appear on the number's shadow). Is there something I'm meant to edit that I've missed here?

    I think this is a bug with a certain SVN version of the disassembly? Try loading the default palette. It's either that or you can't edit the clear colour in palette line 2...or something like that. It's been too long :V

    A dissasembly is not bugged if it builds the rom identically prior to editing, only your edits can cause issues. As for the actual issue, I've seen a less crazy variant of it in my own S2 hack, but don't know anything about it :<

    Trying to move my hack from Sonic 1 to Sonic 2, anyway almost done with my modified Sonic 2 sprites but when I got to the Super Sonic ones I tried to look for Super Sonic's palette file to import my new art. Where is Sonic 2s Super Sonic's palette file?

    Which disassembly are you using? We can't help you if we don't know what we're looking through. Also, if your disassembly has an art folder, try looking through their, or just search the whole disassembly for the key word "palette".

    Sonic_2_(Split_and_Text_by_Xenowhirl), but I am considering switching to Saxman's Sonic Boom, both have an almost identical file structure as far as art goes.

    its in the art folder, in the palettes section. It's called "SonicAndTails.bin".

    I made it such that the Player 2-ABC buttons in Sonic 2 work for Sonic and vice versa for Tails, but when I'm playing them alone the 2nd controller doesn't work. I'm guessing it's because the code doesn't load the 2nd controller into RAM when in 1p mode but I can't find that particular bit in the code.

    I'm using Hg, any pointers on where to look?

    In one of the SVN variants, this was a problem, with title cards. It was due to how they renamed or moved a palette file or something like that. It's either that (but they fixed that a long time ago), or, it's because one of his palette colours is edited. It's either the clear block or the black block. I remember one of them can't be edited or the game freaks out.

    How does one make new sound effects for sonic 1 disasm with xm3something? Are they like music files that you make a midi/xm then convert it but use it in the sound effect directory?

    If there are any tools out there to handle SFX, then I'm unaware of them. Though if you are desperate, that should give you a head start at least.
