    Nice, an icy Marble Zone? Looks pretty good.

    Alter the white mountains colour. It doesn't fit with the previous mountains behind it.

    I agree with AnimeMaster in that


    (Hey, in the latest version of your hack it's a desert zone. Are you trying to do something similar to the original Desert Zone in Sonic 2?)

    Clouds look identical.

    I'm currently working on a Parallax Editor for Sonic 1 (possibly S2 at some point). Because I'm still trying to fully learn how to make deformation (for example the water in GHZ getting faster with every line), it will only support the basic "blocks of parallax scrolling". That's what makes the below screenshot an obvious mockup (notice the water):


    [​IMG]


    But the first pre-alpha prototype is already on its way and should be released soon (hopefully).


    A couple of things you might want to know:

    • You will be able to select areas, like from 0 to 98 (the green area in this example).
    • After that you can select the speed, which will be indicated by the colour (black/white = very slow or not moving at all; blue = slow; green = normal; yellow = faster; red = very fast (I'm not sure if the selection of colours is good)).
    • If I'm ever able to figure out how it works, I will also add the "gradient speed", where you can select a start speed and a final speed. With each pixel row, it's getting a little faster (the yellow to red gradient you see in this example, or in other words, the water).
    Any suggestions are welcome. =)

    And this is what many people were looking for. The ideas are very good and it's very useful for the people who don't know how to make deformations, like me. Here's a question, though -- Could custom backgrounds that for example I made in SonED2 be displayed in this program? And, could we add more blocks to the deformation?


    Anyways, this is very good, useful and generous. Keep up the ideas and the work! :rolleyes:

    An interesting idea, looks like it could be a nifty program. I would proberly test the program, but not use it, as I would rather have the achievement of figuring it out in asm. I'm sure alot of others would like to use this though =). This reminds me, I should really get back to learning asm.

    Ah crap, forgot to mention this. Yes, you can, though it's only a limited space of 320x224 pixels, the normal size of the screen. Actually, what you see in this mockup is how it should look in the end in the program.

    Likely one of the most wanted tool ever [​IMG]


    Although I understood what was going on with the background plane after 5 minutes of playing S1 for the first time a few months after its release (and I must say I find the trick even more beautiful than what real 3D or dozens of planes could have been), I still can't manage to properly do some of the most basic effects without wasting a ridiculous lot of time.


    Such a tool would probably help designing much better and more complex backgrounds, and let people focus a bit more on art than asm tricks.


    Good luck ^^

    EDIT: This video is now public (because it's hilarious), and this post is now pointless.

    Is that My Little Pony? :D


    It does look awesome though, I can just imagine playing and walking up to it thinking "Oh that's doesn't look too dangerous", then BAM!

    That's a pretty cool idea, I support it. :D

    I'm not familiar with those ponies, but it looks wonderful.


    I love its sprites and the way it attacks, excellent job. =)

    Can you add the ability to check what the movement is dependant on? For example, move the blocks forward with nothing it depends on (like the clouds in ghz) or make it dependant on the X position of sonic/the screen?


    Also, a preview of the screen moving.

    Just saying, the sprites are not mine, the sprites are from "DesktopPonies" (a rip-off of WindowsZone)

    If I may suggest something: some automatic comments in the asm output, like which rows are affected by a given part of the code.


    The tool would be great to use, but if it can help understanding what's being done and make it easy to further customize the background, it should be even better.

    Anybody can throw a quick image together and claim he's working on a program. However, I felt like an actual in-program screenshot would work better:


    [​IMG]


    To be honest, this image is in some ways a mockup as well, because I was mainly trying to get that preview screen to work (which is not a mockup, by the way), but the actual idea has been programmed and I'm anticipating to release the first version of this program within the next week.


    Special thanks to MainMemory for providing a DLL, which made working with Bitmaps MUCH easier and also much faster. =)

    So you got them fully functional after all, nice one! I welcome any new enemies that are nicely polished (even My little pony ={P).

    We believe you and believe in you. ^^


    What are the "slow down" and "speed up" options for?
