Meaning the title card needs to be 320*224 pixels.

That's pretty fucking sexy.

Like a cross between the Chaotix HUD andthe Sonic 3 HUD.

I don't like the how complicated the shading is especially if its against a detailed background. I would rather have a plain style similar, I think that shading may make things too over the top.

And here is my take on the great title card shown a page back.

I am SO glad that you re-posted that! I love them so much! Guys, can this be the final design for the HUD?

Hey, I think it looks great. My vote goes to this HUD.

My vote too.. I mean, look how well they fit in a zone and I don't think they can get any better than that:

I dunno, I'd rather the font have a few more curves to it. Between Sonic 1, 2, and 3 (and even Sonic CD) the HUD didn't change much -- the only reason the HUD changed at all in Sonic 2 was because the slanted letters were slightly easier to distinguish between in 2P mode (a non-italic 5 and 6 look exactly alike shrunk like that).

As a result I'm not really into a radical change in the font design. It's okay, but it seems just a bit harsh on my eyes.


I do like the new shading, though.

Looks great! I like some of the repositions, but is there any specific reason why it had to say "Zone" four times?

With less contrast and more brightness at the white font (because as ICEknight said, the font is hard to be read) it is perfect

Yes. But what is this "zone zone zone" thing? Looks stupid.

I assumed the 'zone zone zone' thing would move like a sort of banner across that part of the screen. It would probably look better in motion.

I thought of something: Maybe the word "Zone" would be like a marquee, like:

<font size="4"><b>Project: Sonic Retro
Springyard
<marquee loop="-1" scrollamount="6" width="50%">Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone Zone </marquee>
Act 1
</b></font>

I think I remember something like it in another Sonic Game, I just don't remember what.

I think it would be better if the "Sonic the Hedgehog" thing would actually do that, while "Zone" would use the same font and size of the name of the zone (Spring Yard on that case) but black and placed right below the "Yard" in the title.
