    Truly a testament to the benefits of open-source ROM hacks and your skills with the Megadrive.

    Hey, so, would anyone be interested in helping to make a sort of sequel to KEH, with all new levels? I think it could be really interesting. Obviously the levels and any custom objects etc will have to be made compatible with the Sonic 2 engine (with S3K rings).

    I would give it a shot. It'll be fun playing around with Sonic 2 level design for the first time. I'll do any Sonic 1 zone and I can port the rings myself to your rings manager, also I'll use LevelConverter to port the level to Sonic 2, if that is fine with you.

    They mean totally new levels not levels from different games, plus there are a lot of levels from Sonic 1 and 2 already in it. Anyway yeah I think that would be pretty neat maybe I could do SMPS for this one as well, its been a while since Ive contributed music to other projects.

    We discussed this in Discord, they're going to make a new layout using one of the three zones that aren't in KEH, which is totally fine.

    If you want more songs, I might try to pitch in, even if I'm rusty as hell.

    Hey MainMemory, did you see this? https://youtube.com/watch?v=oOKtMCsrZw0

    The author of this TAS is "DarkShamilKhan".

    I'm not an expert, but, while definitely improvable, it's not bad, in my opinion.

    Also, I'm not sure if I used commas right in my previous sentence. Oh well.

    Thanks for sharing! I don't know that you can really improve on any run of this game, because even one frame's difference will cause the next level to use a completely different emerald selection, and then you have to redo everything after that from scratch.

    Yes, that's what I meant, the gameplay looks good, but I'm not sure if they got the best emerald placements, in EHZ for example the last emerald is at the very end, and they even had to backtrack in HPZ, perhaps delaying a few frames here and there could result into better, more straightforward placements.
