Sonic Fan Games (The older ones) First post now has tons of stuff for download at bottom
Posted 24 February 2011 - 07:50 PM
I've got a dvd that has all pre 2005 SFGHQ content somewhere. If I can find that I'll upload some of the stuff off there, it'd probably blow that list right out of the water.
I'm actually interested in trying to find the first fangame I ever played but since SFGHQ wiped out a ton of their stuff it's definitely gone. It was a demo (actually in the scrapped section-- I was 8 and I saw the title "The Bin" for that section and thought of something like a bargain bin full of games and thought that was the main game section), and I remember it had a really huge viewing area, and Metal Sonic, but that's it.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was like GG/SMS Sonic 1, to be honest. In fact, all the stages were pretty much similar to lay-out hacks and etc; the graphics were all from the actual stages. But it was still a rad game, man.

110 "Complete" Games
139 "Demo" Games
24 "Binned" (discontinued development) Games.
That's a total of 273 nostalgia projects for you guys to try out. I might split it up into parts ala, "Demo games", "Complete games", etc. just to get something out there for you guys to play with since it's going to take time to properly determine what's in all 273 folders and rename them appropriately. Right now everything's in an abbreviated folder name like "sstw", so it's not exactly handy for anyone looking for something specific. I have some zips and stuff in here too that may of been games that didn't get properly uploaded to the site before we got hacked in 2005 (if the culprit of those actions is reading this, still no hard feelings as we previously discussed, shit's ancient). If that's the case, expect a few "bonus" games that may not of ever even gotten their chance to appear on SFGHQ included in the packs. It may take me a day or two to get this shit out there because there is a LOT to look through, I'll keep you guys updated.
Special thanks to Smidge204 for providing me with a new copy of our old SFGHQ material since I lost the original dvd he mailed to me.
Once I get these all up, I may even consider getting together some of the ancient sprite materials, tutorials, etc. together, maybe we could make an lol "old school" style fan game with 90s graphics tiles and engines or something hilarious like that, we'll see. Haha

Now without further adieu, let's get some of the requests that weren't filled earlier in the topic.
One game I heard mentioned many times was Sonic Chaos Racers. Well here you go:
I read poly sonic mentioned a bunch of times, well I got a copy of that too, so here's that:
I also saw Sonic Chaos Revolution 2 somewhere, well I got that shit as well hahah:
NOW, if I missed anyone's special requests that weren't already fulfilled earlier, let me know again in this thread and I'll look for them, there's a lot of random stuff spread about in this huge SFGHQ rar I got so I may of missed something.
Now that the individual bits are out of the way, let's get to the big stuff shall we? I don't have full games or the binned section completely done yet but give me some time and I'll get those done too. IN THE MEAN TIME, I've got a fucking massive demo compilation ready to rock for you guys. It took me three full hours to organize this for public use. Now, some things to note:
- Some demos were corrupt, busted or didn't have the game included and only screen shots. These were removed. So instead of the previous estimated total of 139 demo games, I ended up with 127 demos, so while we lost a dozen demos, oh well, we still got an insane number left.
- I've added notations to a few games that I either knew something about or had to access in order to find the name of the game or felt there was a necessary commentary. You'll find these notations at the end of the folder name in parenthesis. I might not of commented on all the games that needed a comment though so keep that in mind. Also, all apostrophes were removed from folder names for a variety of reasons I don't feel the need to explain.
- Some included folders will include screen shots and maybe even the original download html from pre-2005 SFGHQ. I decided to keep these in their folders in their original format and context simply for nostalgia purposes where present.
- Some of said index.html files may trigger your virus scanner when you open them. I'm pretty sure they're not actually virii so I wouldn't worry about it. If you're really that concerned, just don't open them!
- Keep in mind that a lot of these games are olllllllllllld. Old, old, old, so don't expect high performance engines or superior game play. In fact, some of these games are so amazingly bad it's actually hilarious. Not only that, but these ones are demos, so they're older than dirt AND they're incomplete. But that's all part of the nostalgia anyway right?
- Some items have the same name and are included as a separate entry. This may be because it's a different version of a game of the same name or an entirely different game that had the same name.
Now I'm sure all of you want me to cease the bullshit and the walls of text and just get on with it. Well fine, in that case, let's list off what all we've got here shall we?

Alright fan game fans, I'm back again ALREADY with another massive dump! This time it's all the complete games from pre-2005 SFGHQ. After all was said and done, I ended up with a total of 97 games (a few were borked). As last time, commentary was included for some folder names where applicable. But before we get to that, let's take a look at some requests I missed, shall we?
Here's Sonic's Mega Quest, man.
Actually it's called When Team 3 Gets Bored. It was in the demo pack but here's an individual link:
Hahah, you like those? Well here's both of them.
Back to the floating island? Got it right here:
Have you played the 2nd one too? Here's both of them:
http://pc0.sepwich.com/SFG/NoTFH.rar - Here's 3 of them, no TFH sadly though, since blaze restarted it over 9000 times. I can ask him if he has any old builds for ya though.
Did someone say King of Mobius?
Sure it was binned? Are you sure it wasn't maybe... THIS game?:
SOMEONE said something about Robotnik's Revenge, I can't find the post to quote it but whatever, I remember seeing it. Robotnik's Revenge was actually also known as Robotnik's Rebellion if I remember correctly. That being the case, here's a copy for you as well:
Now that ALL of those are out of the way, I don't think I missed any requests. If I did miss any, sorry, let me know and I'll try to find it! That being the case, I suppose it's about time to get on with the big stuff shall we? Things to note about this pack:
- My DLL pack has been updated, so you may wanna grab the new one as a game or two might not work without it.
- Many of these games, although not all, actually include their ORIGINAL REVIEW pages AND screen shots from old SFGHQ, so you can actually take a step back in time and see what people thought of the games when they were originally released! Very cool for nostalgia fans. Definitely worth checking out!
- Includes a horribly embarrassing Sonic Tennis game made by AJ Freda, creator of SRB2. Mwahahaahaha >=D
- Some of these games are pretty good, others even worse than some of the demos. But it's all part of the nostalgia right?
- Jesus christ Aytac made a lot of freaking games other than chaomega! Cripes!

Any commentary on any specific games you like or hate or thoughts/mistakes in the pack, let me know!
EDIT: I feel terrible! I almost forgot to mention a special thanks to BRPXQZME! His dll pack of ages old had a file that mine was missing! Said file was since added to mine, but thanks to him because I would have forgotten it otherwise if I didn't stumble upon this olllld dll pack!

Back to the floating island? Got it right here:
Alright! Finally, after all thesse years, I can goo back and play through one of the first fan games I ever downloaded!
Well, at least this is the right game, but I know that there's a full version out there. It was about 30-50 levels long, with a crap-ton of extras. (And you could edit the .gam file, which I did because the game locked up on a certain stage for some reason so I just deleted the scene)
EDIT: I also just noticed that list has Tails Rescue Quest on it. AND it has that game Wood Island I saw previewed in a couple of those old game libraries that had sprites and stuff in them. (I never knew that even came out)
