Here is a hack I'm currently working on for S3&K, making the level difficulty much harder, the layouts of the levels are mostly rebuilt.
This is mainly a start hack to learn hex, I have also edited some boss patterns and HP (IE first miniboss in AIZ now fires his flame attack almost the second he lands then flies off again without waiting leaving allot less time to hit him on).

Some pictures below:

Wow, I think that's actually pretty impressive. The Sky sanctuary is the only thing that gets to me.. You know? It looks a little.. "plain". Maybe add a few clouds, or so, then it'll look great. :D Nice job, nonetheless.

This, I'm REALLY looking forward to, since it's not very often you see a level design hack of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Nice work.

Looks nice, and making a hack to change the behaviour of stuff in S3&K is something I've never seen before. Keep up the good work. :)

Wow! For hacking a game such as S3K, this is excellent! How'd you go about editing the boss patterns, exactly?

Well still learning the basics, might release a small guide for it once I get better.
But quickly said I first find the boss I want to alter then I alter some events, events is normally in XX7C YYYY ZZZZ format.

I.E $6B05C lies the amount of bombs Robotnik drops on the HCZ boss, 117C 0008 0039.

That almost looks like someone or something took a crap all over angel island lol. But this is definately a great step foward for s3k hacking!

Why not? S3&K is too easy, imo.

^ Not sure about this palette[/quote]That pallete just got butchered. The other ones are pretty good, though, especially Marble Garden.
