    Well, I've been working on this for a while now, but I have had yet to post about it here.

    I've been working on a full restoration of Sonic 3 and Knuckles back into SCE. While most of everything will be the same, I will also be adapting the game to work with SCE's engine changes, and also changing SCE's engine to restore features S3&K needed for the game to work properly. As of right now, a total of four zones have been mostly restored into the game, with FBZ about to join in as well. I will be restoring some cut content as well, such as the original zone order, some prototype DAC samples, (The tom drums sound slightly stronger in the prototype compared to the final release) and also add more moves to Sonic, such as the Super Peelout and Drop Dash, and also give Tails a flight cancel ability.

    Most of everything works as intended, with some things not working as okay as others, due to some engine changes that I haven't yet been able to figure out, whether it's how to modify some code to fit the changes, or revert the change to the original S3&K Version. Playability has only recently been restored, and some zone transitions aren't complete yet, such as HCZ1's zone transition lacking a whirlpool to bring Sonic into Act 2. Speaking of HCZ, that pseudo-3D water effect in Act 1 has problems with actually loading the art for the water. While the waterline itself does work, the art doesn't load at all. So you instead get a mess of background tiles scrolling in the wrong way. There's also this weird glitch in the intro, where the water palette loads OVER the normal palette. I think this could be because of the water loading without the actual water palette for the intro, but I'm not entirely sure. One annoying thing that I haven't been able to fix is several bugs related to how level layouts are modified. In AIZ1, the hollow tree can end up reloading itself to before Sonic ran through it, instead of still using the hollow graphics. In CNZ, the level transition is VERY broken. The layout refreshes in the wrong way, and it causes Sonic to end up dying after the results screen. If you use debug mode, you can move back up to where the level transition normally happens, and aside from a slightly misdrawn background (and water palettes being entirely blacked out) the second act plays normally.

    Despite the various bugs, the game still plays pretty normal, but there's still a lot to be done to completely adapt the game to SCE's modified engine. Below are a few screenshots of current development progress, and a YouTube video of a showcase I did two days after Sonic 3's anniversary. Once a decent amount of the game is restored, I plan to record another showcase, but this time playing through the game normally, as hopefully I will have gotten a lot of playability restored, and a lot of the engine adaptations done. But for now, here's the current showcase. I hope you like it! (Screenshots were taken in KEGA Fusion. For some reason, they were cropped to PAL resolution, even though they were taken in the NTSC resolution)

    What state is this hack in? I am a big fan of this game and I am very happy to know that you are giving it love.

    Adding Mega CD support to my emulator has been going well, with help from Devon. Aside from its special stages, Sonic CD is very presentable now!

    That's fantastic to hear! If you ever get to a point where you work on 32X support, this one will be #1 on my list for top emulators (either way, it'll be #1 nonetheless).

    Hi it's been forever since I last posted back from 2021 [wow it's been that long]
    Wanna do some screen dumping in here to show off a personal project I recently got back in since last year and still working on it.
    Sonic 1 Strange Dream World. It's a RSDK mod project that aim to reimagine Sonic 1 with some overhaul graphics in a sort of dream like color style.

    The title screen, clouds will be edit differently sometime soon

    This one took a long time to get where it was at back from 2021 SHC Expo.
    I took a lot more time on this to practice editing the zone graphics and palettes. The practice paid off well : )

    Purtty stuff. I love some of the purple tinted stuff (I might be biased, because purple is my favorite color).

    Minor username change: didn't want to maintain a common Italian name as my username.

    Had to modify the H-scroll effect for my Splash Screen, as this new logo of mine is now too wide horizontally to be rendered under the previous code.

    A new adventure is on the horizon.

    This project is aiming to be built off Sonic 2, tho the particular disassembly version is undecided due to the ever-changing structure of the disassembly hosted on GitHub. Top current choices are Giovanni's Score Rush branch and Filter's optimized engine. Stay tuned for more.

    Here is the current progress on the work to port Sonic 1 to S.C.E. (S3K Engine)

    We have completed the main work and are now working on bug fixes. We are planning a release this year.

    Currently, Sonic Encore has been evolving.

    I guess I'll put some images here, since I've never (I think) used this thread.
