    I was going to say the same thing. Was it intentional (like, "This is Mobius, things are different here") or did you just have trouble with drawing a circle?


    But otherwise, this looks pretty good. =)

    You could go to google images and get a picture of the moon and scale it down a bit then select a palette row and reduce the colors and get some thing like this.

    Also the image above uses sonic's palette

    Sorry for sounding stupid, but it isn't pallet, it's palette.


    Also, that moon looks great for a Mega Drive.

    Yes sir.


    Oh wait, I'm sorry, you have no authority here do you.


    And it's palette, not pallete.

    I promise that I'll not comment about the Sega sound and the title screen gradient's ghz. Because specially you're allowed for use that background. Until edited, I recognized that. But please don't think that I'm trying to make some kind of "OMG, STOLEN!" again because this time I mean just the opposite, because this art was VERY obsolete already for me. Going back to the topic, I didn't HATE the music stuff, to be honest. But you could just select a better song for this level. Spring Stadium Zone Act 1 really doesn't fits to it. And also the music stuff needs to be fixed. In addition, if you're using the S1HL driver, don't forget to credit Eduardo Knuckles and HPZMan for this. You're forgetting giving credits to the designed people about the music stuff.

    Actually I am using the s2clonedriver, but as for the music stuff and what you said about the spring stadium song, I am currently planning on turning MCZ into a casino or amusement park type zone not sure which one I am going to go with but that's why I put that song on that zone specifically.

    Yep, just because this song ONLY fits into casino or carnival zones... in my opinion. But I think that other people will agree on it.

    I think the music fits really well, honestly. Great work!

    I saw some of your artwork Xero and I have to say I'm very impressed.


    Keep up the excellent work!

    It's been awhile since i did any updates here as I said I would do. well i have some news for all of you, I present to you all a major update of my hack sonic xero v3.0. now as the file will say, i am very close into being finished with it fully for the full version so part that looks weird and or glithcy i still have to fix if you encounter any. also planned with a little help from some people, i will plan on at least porting another character, i know i said this so many times but i really have one of my goals set on doing just that. and thanks to markeyjester and his tutorial about adding a third parallax (sub-bg), i also plan on adding that as well on one of the zones. aside that, some changes made are....


    - major art updates for most of the zones


    - new pallet for sonic


    - new animations


    - some chaotix ports


    - new sprite edits for sonic (done by myself)


    and some pics:

    credits:


    same as always but with more reason to give credit


    - selbi: homing attack


    - markeyjester: sonic crackers pack & chaotix to smps converter


    - tweaker: s2clonedriver and speedcap removal


    - theguy321: LZ art


    and any others that helped me out in making this hack.


    aside from that, you can get the latest build here:


    Sonic_xero_v3.0__75__completion_build_.zip


    enjoy everyone :p


    p.s: also as always if you encounter any errors, please do let me know about any changes that should be made.

    I can't test the ROM for now

    (due to fuckin' personal problems and shit)
    , but I can say something about the screenshots and shit


    - "TEAM ALPHA" needs to be more centered


    - Improve a bit the water in the GHZ's background


    - The MZ's background is too much simple...


    - The HUD edit is nice, but is similar to my own =P


    - Come on, the s2clone driver sucks, I recommend the S1HL driver... If you want I can send you a package with all the s2 drums in the same order


    - If I understand correctly, there's a Chaotix to SMPS converter? =O where I can download it?


    - Don't worry with bugs and glitches, I have MUCH MORE ( I know all my bugs anyway, so I'll took an complete day on fix all)


    And well, and as I see, if it needs ASM stuff, I'm here...


    EDIT: A question: You know how to import art to SonED2? Why I think no?

    it's easier for me to use in my opinion and I had my tries with using the s1hl driver and got stuck on one part (god how tired i was that time :p) and just forgot about it.

    At irixion's site here:


    http://smps.digibase.ca/index.php


    though I think you have to sign up to be able to get it.

    Chaotix is SMPS; it just uses a modified SMPS that uses the 32X PWM to make four PCM channels. Tempo also has this (though it also uses the YM2612 DAC for whatever reason).


    ...sound test 02 and 0B? the sprite from coming down from a spring?

    I'm not sure where to begin. The screenshots say "This is going to be interesting and fun", but the sounds in game scream "Stolen Content" and the gameplay spells "Too out of flow for fun or challenge" (Some of your designs look reasonably good though, I'll give you that).


    Nothing more I can say other than I cannot enjoy playing this, and you need to revise a "lot" of stuff excruciatingly.

    exactly which sounds in particular? I assure you that none of them are stolen.

    yeah I couldn't really think of any other ideas so yeah my apologies for that, and thanks for the comment about the designs.

    My concern is not necessarily the use of the track itself (heck, none of us came up with the arrangements, etc), but the SMPS version created there was not done via a simple copy/paste, infact it had to be "remade" from ground upwards with a good listening ear, so the individual who made that for use with megamix put a lot of effort into making it, I'd feel upset if I found that my hard time work was simply copy/pasted and use without even a concent.


    I won't ask you to remove it, nor will I hope you keep hold of it, infact quite frankly I don't want anything to do with it. All I'll say is that by having a mixturous amount of half stolen half complete unprofessionally presented work, you basically drop out a lot of willing players including myself, currently now I feel no need to play, enjoy or acknowledge your work, so think of it as a consideration for improvement, an opinion of practice, a lightful concerning, etc.


    Good luck regardless.

    I actually got the song from my friend ghfusion on you-tube in return for helping him on a hack he is making. on the actual topic, im sorry if you feel that my hack is not all that great, but like many other's, I am still in the process of learning the full atributes in making a hack completely original, I have some idea's I want to do but due to my lack of skill in not knowing all the aspects in ASM and my biggest disadvantage in learning how HEX editing works, I can never be able to make those ideas come true. I want my hack to be something extraordinary and original to were it would feel like a actual game made for the genesis, like your hack or the Sfactor for example. i want the game-play to feel like the same way as how those were, exhilarating and fun to play. i dont want my hack to be like the typical level layout and pallet hack you would see often. I want to think out of the box and make something on my own like new originally created moves, or custom original zone art with enemies made by myself. but again I am sorry if you feel upset that my hack is not all that great, but i will at the very least try to make it to were its decent to play, i dont want others to feel the same way as you said here:

    which kind of turned down my confidence in even trying to continue since most of the time I get the same response from someone saying there is stolen content


    but i can't blame them, i mean when i first started this hack, it had nothing but stolen content to begin with, which makes me kind of regret in even continuing with the hack at times.
