So I decided to write my own version of the S2HD engine instead of waiting for anything to come from here, and here's the result.



Emerald Hill Zone and Hill Top Zone are currently fully playable, including bosses.

I've only compiled a Windows version right now, since I had some issues with my Ubuntu 8.04 VM. Source code will be posted this weekend.

Download: s2hd_alpha_release_0.4.zip (45.94 MB)

EDIT: I fixed a last-minute audio bug. Redownload the program if you already downloaded it.
EDIT: And another last-minute bug fixed; this time, it's a crash bug. v0.4 uploaded.

Reason for edit: v0.4 bugfix.

I knew what was coming before I clicked the download link, yet I was powerless to stop myself.

I'm not downloading this if Rick Astley isn't playable, with Eduard Khil as his sidekick.

It occurred to me that this was an April Fools joke just as my mouse hovered over the icon. I started it up anyway for shits and giggles.

As a general rule I believe nothing on this day. Come back on the 4th and promote this. Otherwise...

I'm serious! It isn't - we practically had to beat Gerbil to pieces to ENSURE this, but it isn't =P
