    It seems you ported the S1 sound driver the wrong way. You should have called sub_71B4C at the beginning of loc_45E, instead of before it. It'd fix the title card lag, for one thing. Also, this thing severely lacks sound effect ports (Spindash/Peelout), leading to a bunch of problems. Also, plz to be replacing sub_1388 (PauseGame) with this:



    Code:
    sub_1388:			&#59; CODE XREF: ROM:00004360p
    
    				&#59; ROM:000051FCp ...
    
    		nop	
    
    		tst.b	($FFFFFE12).w
    
    		beq.w	loc_13F8
    
    		tst.w	($FFFFF63A).w
    
    		bne.s	loc_13A6
    
    		move.b	($FFFFF605).w,d0
    
    		or.b	($FFFFF607).w,d0
    
    		andi.b	#-$80,d0
    
    		beq.s	locret_13FE
    
    
    
    loc_13A6:			&#59; CODE XREF: sub_1388+Ej
    
    		move.w	#1,($FFFFF63A).w
    
    		move.b	#1,($FFFFF003).w&#59; pause music
    
    loc_13B2:			&#59; CODE XREF: sub_1388+68j

    		move.b	#$01,($FFFFF003).w 
    
    		rts	
    
    ; End of function sub_1388

    ...which should fix the pausing-doesn't-stop-music bug.

    You did a great job with GHZ though.

    I see. That sucks. So all your previous ASM work died also, eh?

    The sound driver bugs will be corrected at some point, although I dunno if we'll correct the pause bug, I kinda like that way.

    Already fixed up.

    I don't see it causing any problems. It just means the sounds aren't at a standard they should be. We're just working on the more important things first before we start worrying about stuff like that. Progress was quite severely slowed down when Ordos lost his stuff in his HDD crash, coz I was waiting on some art adjustments he was making before I ported Marble Zone. I might just go ahead and port it anyway and make the adjustments later on, but it would have saved me doing the same work twice. The only issue with porting Marble Zone is that you can't fit all of the tiles in, so some stuff has to be altered, and the background might need to be simplified a little bit, although you probably wouldn't notice it much if you looked at it.

    I already knew how to fix the music pausing bug, but after talking to Ordos about it, we decided that it's actually a nice touch to have the music playing when paused.

    The mock-up title screen uses the BG directly from S3K. But it still suits with the S1 Remix title screen. Great work so far.

    Not sure if you know this or not, but its pretty funny. If you spindash 3 or 4 times really fast the music slows down.

    On the subject of music and pausing, would it be possible to write a routine that halves the music volume when paused? I know that you guys are very certain on what you do and do not want in this project, but I thought I'd throw the idea out there regardless. Apologies if I'm being retarded.

    Why was the behind the wall art replaced with the dark checkerboard patterns? Doesn't look as good IMO.

    Question, are there any plans to create a super sonic level?

    I never liked the original dark green and dark brown vertical line shit. Plus, STI didn't seem to think so in Sonic 2.

    Even though we're using the Sonic 2 engine, Super Sonic will not be playable in regular gameplay. We may have playable Super Sonic as part of the unlockable content, or as a cheat code.

    I absolutely love the music. Which game does it come from? It sounds vaguely familiar. The SEGA sound mess-up is also kinda funny ("SEGA-tshhhh") :)


    GHZ act 3's collision is majorly screwed up, but I guess you guys haven't gotten around to fixing it yet.


    Also, when you defeat GHZ act 3's boss, why does act 1 music play?

    Green Hill plays Jungle Zone from Sonic 1 8-bit


    After act 3 it plays Bridge Zone.


    Also is there any plans to implement the 8-bit boss music?

    That's due to not changing the music call after the boss. Cinossu's 16-bit rendition of Bridge was being used for Green Hill before Tweaker and Puto's Jungle was inserted.

    Yes, but not for bosses, it'll be used for something else.

    Bleh, I thought there would be some type of Doomsday Zone level in such a massive project, but I guess this project is more of a mixture between the original 8 bit games and the 16 bit ones.
