Wheee, here's my SMW hack that I'm making. It's a team hack, but I'm the head of it all. I'm mostly doing the level design, while I have people help me with my weaker points. I started a while back, but I didn't have Sonic foreground and backgrounds at the moment.

EDIT: What is going to be included in the hack;
Custom blocks - Yes, custom blocks. Like shrinking and growing blocks.
Custom Sprites - Yes, this too. Sprites as in enemies, NPC's and maybe a small boss
Custom Music - This is a must for me, and yes, I am using Sonic music
Custom Graphics - Well, this is obvious. What would a sonic hack be without Graphics?
Custom Overworld Graphics - Yes, custom graphics on the OW. No Screenshots yet, but I will have them soon.
New title and credits - Well, yeah

Names are pending

I say scrap Silver, all he is is a Sonic recolour at the moment.

The 8-bit Sonic 1 graphics fit together with the SMW stock backgrounds pretty well! Not looking too bad, keep it up! :)

Out of curiosity, how do you plan to make the Sonic environments better suited to Mario-style platforming? There's quite a bit of contrast, and it may take some work to get entirely right.

I've seen those 8-bit GHZ graphics too many times in SMW hacks. The Star Light Zone looks good though.

Well, everyone I talk to wants a second player. It's either this, or a crappier version of Sonic.

Actually, all the graphics, or most of them at least, will be Sonic. I have some advanced Assembly that makes Sonic/Silver run faster, and loose all rings when hit. But because of limitations, not many rings can fly out. The assembly is not mine, someone else I know made it.

Thanks for comments guys!

@rika_chou: Ahhh, you ninja'd me. But yes, they are. I'm getting 16 bit ones soon, or at least, better ones that fit with the style

OK, just to clerify, it'd be too hard to do that. I want custom music, and the patch to seperate the grapics and addmusic run into each other. So it's either way, or wait, and custom music is a must. Sorry though.

Instead of Silver why not retro Amy who has similar spikes to Sonic.

If you just slightly edit Sonic's sprite you can cheat and make it look like amy has a skirt and green top... ish.

But I am not sure if you are allowed to change most of the palette or are you only allowed to change the blue shades?

Why doesn't anyone like Silver?
Anyway, Amy is Peach in my hack.
Also, I'm still waiting for a friend of mine to finish Starlight City 3 so I can finish Starlight City 1 and Starlight Secret 1.

Its nothing against him it just doesn't seem to look like his shape. And you could make Tails Peach.

Sonic never saved Tails, that'd be weird.

What about Shadow?

I edited the Sonic Sprite so that it would work with the alternate palette.

I dunno how simple it is to separate the graphics between Mario and Luigi, which use the same graphics. I believe there might be a patch on SMWC for this, but I'm not entirely sure about it.

Yes, but like I said, it doesn't work with addmusic.

Why does his sprite make him look like he's trying to show of a dick that's not there.
