Let's be honest here, we all leave the SEGA slash ident in our hacks, and in many cases, we make improvements or even changes to it, and in the extreme of cases, we actually go through the effort to put it in where it isn't present. I suspect that, just like me, you probably have one of several reasons for this, and some are usually depicted depending on the hack/fangame/project in question. Do you: Leave the logo in there, because you cannot be bothered to remove it. Leave the logo in there, because it's a novelty and adds to the nostalgia. Leave the logo in there, because of SEGA's efforts towards making the original game you are hacking, or basing the game off of. Edit the logo, because it's the best way for you to practise making idents or splash screens of your own. Edit the logo, because it looks tacky, and you think you could make a better one, or do a much better job. Edit the logo, because you want it to be a specific style that refers to the game/hack in question. Edit the logo, because every Sonic game had a slight difference to the logo, and you feel to continue that trend. Edit the logo, because it would be cool to shock people with a brand new type of logo that they totally wouldn't expect, after playing many projects that did not edit it at all. Repace the logo with another SEGA logo from another game, because you preferred that version and/or want to make the point that they should have gone with that one because it's cooler. Replace the logo with a different name/logo, but in the same style, because you like the style, but want people to know it's a different group working on it altogether, and don't feel that another logo is necessary, when this can both show your appreciation to SEGA, and show your own group in one final swoop, and yes I know this is specific, but fuck you, I felt like making one of these a super huge paragraph for the comical aspect, and stay true to my name as "Jester". I don't really care at all, I just want to make a hack, and really don't find editing (or removing) the logo to be worth my time. It could be that like me, you have different reasons depending on the hack. Like, sometimes I don't care about removing/editing the logo, because the hack is nothing more than a concept, or a joke, or whatever. Sometimes I like to make little touches to it, just for the cool factor, and shamefully admitting here, I sometimes like to show off~ Sometimes I want the style to fit in with the title screen, and transition to that immediately. What about you?
