    A cold place.
    I am concerned about your HydroCity bricks.

    As seen here, The light sources don't add up at all. The purple and orange brick's light is upwards, while the blue brick's is to the right, and the green's in the center.

    Wow, this is amazing! These new changes will help immensely in a proof-of-concept I'm currently working on.
    I can't wait to use this in a couple of days. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Fixed.
    The screen captures for the Chaotix Robotnik showcase were originally in HD, they have since been dropped to Standard Definition and will load up much faster; each file is under one Megabyte, although it might be higher for others, as I have my Hard Disk Drive completely compressed and files will appear smaller on my end, as a result of that.

    I'll take that into consideration during my art overhaul of Spirit Waters; the original plan was to find a way to have some of the bricks animate with the intended colours, so that they didn't feel off in general review, but given how Mania's palette progression works on specific colours, only one portion of the palette (the shades of Sky Blue used for the water) will actually change, thus I'll have to have these blocks (and the big squares in the walls, as per your pointing out) changed accordingly, that won't be a problem.

    Maybe those aren't shadows and they just look like that? Maybe the individuals who built those blocks did it as an aesthetic choice?

    Perhaps.

    But that doesn't escape the fact that a larger percentage of the audience will criticize it, for not following realistic rules of reality, even if it was intentional. That is the price to pay for intentionally making something, look as though it was created in an inexperienced way.

    Red Arremer from Ghouls n Ghosts (or Firebrand, as he was called in Gargoyle's Quest video game series) made its way to my S1 hack as pretty hard boss. This video also shows blood mode (thank Hardline team for it)


    Your thoughts?

    Despite indeed looking hard, it also looks very tedious, since he keeps attacking on the top of the screen for too much time, and there is isn't too much variation on his attacks.
    Maybe you can at least make him go down more often?

    I am working way too slow on this. I just recolored the ground to match more the background. This is good looking?

    (Also sorry for the Double Post)

    You're very obviously going for a futuristic city aesthetic for the stage, so I don't particularly think the grass and tbe stone floor really fits with that kind of background scenery. It would work very well in something like Scrap Brain Zone.
    That doesn't mean I don't like the art, though! It looks so good! I just think the foreground needs some work, to keep the theme consistent, or just take that background and apply it onto a different level.

    I actually found grass a pretty good contrast for industrial environment in background. Theme doesn't need to be about industrial only, mix of certain elements can be pretty interesting like Stardust Speedway, when city BG is mixed with trumpet-like FG roads or Collision Chaos when grass is mixed with Casino-like shit (bumpers, flippers etc.).

    Turn the grass into Neon tubes of light, ones that are shaped like glass, but maybe cycle palette them slightly to glow. That way, you can keep the grass whilst still catering to the "futuristic" theme =3

    Excellent work!
    This version is better than the 32X version!
    I say that because it is well detailed and the shadowing that you put on super sonic.
    I had the same problem too...
    Have you tried to drag the attached file directly?

    I hit the image button on the format bar in the reply thing and paste the dropbox link and it doesn't work. the Dropbox link goes directly to file so it should work so I'm not sure.

    Try changing ?dl=0 to ?raw=1 in the url.

    Or just remove the "?dl=X" tag entirely and replace "www" with "dl" (it'll lengthen itself to "dl.dropboxusercontent.com" automatically, and is easier to type).

    I got it fixed thanks to Xeal, As for this, It is the 32X. Unless you mean the original version of the sprite from Chaotix with the Non smooth shading from Crackers?
