What happens when you reverse the frequency tables in Sonic 1?
This.

I see your Sonic 1 Reversed Frequencies and I raise you Sonic 2 Reversed Frequencies.

I recommend Hill Top, Casino Night, Mystic Cave and the Special Stage (for the intro).

I love these reversed frequency hacks to death. So simple, and so brilliant. Can't wait to see Sonic 3 done.

Oh yeah, in this Sonic 2 one, I noticed the boss music sounds like clown music. Like Sonic 4, hmmm? I wonder what would happen if we reversed the frequency on Sonic 4's boss music? =P

Oh my god, Death Egg Zone sounds fantastic.

Oh yeah, Sonic's hurt/dying noise sounds like something from Ristar. v.png

oh and I can't find where track 12 is used anywhere, that's my fave EWJ song. Would have made a great scrap brain song.

Done:
Earthworm Jim music in Sonic 1, v2
  • New (fixed) playlist
  • Fixed some sound effects
  • And fixed some random crashes

How did you read my mind Cinossu? o.O I wanted someone to do S2 also. xD Also nice to see you've got approved GenesisFan64! Downloading these two mini hacks now. :3

You beat me to it. :P I made the changes last night in a test hack but I'm a bit busy with school and whatnot so I didn't take the time to make a hack with only these changes in it. I agree with your recommendations; I'll also say that Super Sonic's theme sounds like something bad is going to happen. :P

I think the reason why some tracks sound so different is that sometimes the lead is quieter and the melody is louder due to the frequency change. Unless you've been listening to each channel individually with a VGM player or something like I did, you may ear something you didn't notice from the original track.

Also, I received this email:

Sorry, I lurk the forums and can't manage to wait for full member access.

Please, do the reversed frequencies for Sonic 2 and S3&K! I loved how the moods and whatnot completely changed. Plus, my curiosity for the other games is killing me, haha.

Well, that's Sonic 2 done. I'll try doing Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles by next week unless I'm beaten to it again. v.png

Oh no don't do sonic 3. People will shit bricks when they hear something similiar by one note to micheal jackson's music =P.

Overall, I like it. The music is quite good and the sound effects are just awesome, (the explosion sound sounds like someone got slapped)

Yeah, this is rather nice. I've gotten the GEMS driver directly into Sonic 1 No-Name, and it coexists with the Sonic 3 Z80 Driver. It's used mostly in teh special stage, and when I get 'round to it, I'll make a quick vid of it.

Made while bored, with the intention of offering to SOTI for S2Dimps, here is Sonic 2 with Sonic 4ish palletes.





I could probably make Lost Labyrinth's better with Tribeam's new pallete editor. But I don't care enough to. Not at the moment, anyway. v.png

The middle of the final boss sounds like notes out of Super Mario Galaxy.

Here's the full "Reversed Frequencies" series:

Sonic 1
Sonic 2 (by Cinossu)
Sonic 3
Sonic & Knuckles

Sonic 3 introduced a new difficulty, as the FM frequency table only contained entries for a single octave, and the values for the higher octaves are computed. I had to edit the code a little bit (start a counter at 38h instead of 0 and subtract instead of add), but to determine what I had to edit, I first needed to disassemble it and make some sense of it.

In Sonic & Knuckles, the driver is compressed, unlike in Sonic 3 where it's uncompressed. I struggled a bit to assemble it correctly (I must have made a mistake in the hex editor, but I couldn't find it, so I exported a .asm file from IDA and edited the driver from the assembly code instead).

EDIT: fixed download link to S&K
