    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    Glad you two like it! I'll be tweaking things as I go, so nothing is really final. It's going to be a hack of Sonic 1, but I cheated a bit and just mocked things up for this "screenshot". I'll be back from vacation at the start of next month, so I'll be seeing about getting something playable whipped up then.

    As for the comments about the art style, it's simple just because I'm not really a great spriter yet and can't seem to get good results (yet) with more complicated designs, so I'm sort of playing to what I'm decent at and shooting for sort of a geometric, Sonic CDish style.

    I'll probably start a topic for it around when I get back, so I'll have some more for you folks to look at soon. Thanks for the feedback!

    So I wanted to bump this for another question. I am adding a feature for exporting palettes/tiles etc. to images. Right now, it is only set to export to .png. I think that this is the BEST format to save to. What do you all think? If you are someone who would make use of an export feature, would you like to just use .png? or would you like other file formats? I can easily put others in... just wondering if it is necessary.

    As I've submitted my hack for the Hacking Contest due to shortage of time, and because I got some good news in my life recently, I'm feeling generous.

    Of course its still got a ways to go. Credits to Selbi for the extended camera code demonstrated in the video but hasn't been done yet for charging the peelout nor the spindash. Apologies to the judges for one of the videos as I realised it screws up so I had to redo it for Youtube. I will most likely upload one more video this week. Please realise that this is still in its beta stage, anything you see as a sign of a bug/something needed to be fixed I proberly already no of and is being fixed, thank you.

    This looks really cool! GHZ Past's color scheme reminds me of Sunny Shores Zone from Megamix (which is good). Also, have you ever though of using actual GHZ remixes for the Past and Future versions? I think that would add a nice touch musically.

    Not what you've done but the extended camera itself. I never understood the appeal of that camera mode from Sonic CD.

    Very nicely done Animemaster! I've watched both preview videos and I really love where your hack is going. But I do love the slowed down GHZ music, so if you want to change any of the music, I hope you don't change that. But of course it's your hack, and if you want to then it's all good. :v: It's great to see another Sonic 1 hack with time travel. ^_^ Will we be getting a demo for the hacking contest, or is it going to be a partially private entry? I would love to play it. :)

    Well, I like it for its intended purpose: Being able to see what's ahead of you earlier than with the regular camera system. You usually don't care about what's behind you anyways. The only nuisance in SCD, which I've fixed in my code, is that the camera doesn't behave or reset while being in-air.

    Still, in my hack, I give people the choice whether or not they want this feature. It's not my decision, it's theirs.

    Thanks guys, yeah I've already got some remix ideas planned, and I may just keep the slow downed(depressed I call it) version of ghz, you know just because. As for the Sonic CD camera I personally do not mind it, though It kinda has to have it considering its ment to be based of Sonic CD heh. At the moment it is a partial private entry due to time contraints, but if I can work on it more I'll try to make it playable for the re-submit update before the 27th. Also for those who haven't seen the second video here it is:


    Showcases some music(Not final and not to great at the moment), how the timestone timetravel works, very simple(May try to include a flash), and a sneak peak of bad future hill.

    Interesting! I prefer vanilla Sonic 1's special stage entry method, though.

    The level of eye-candiness is too damn high! Please, put it away before I get an artistic boner!

    Hey, haven't seen you here in awhile. I always like seeing your mini-hacks, and this ones no exception. :)

    There is no Sonic hacking scene without Markey. Way to blow it, Retro!

    Very nice work indeed Markey - that stage rendering is done entirely in software, I assume? Pretty damn boss!

    I wish you'd post here more. =P

    So those old magazine reviews that whined that Sonic CD could have been a cart were right all along? =P

    It's awesome, though. With edited art that suffered less from the pixelation, it'd be perfect.

    Yes, it goes on slopes, plus the drill breaks the walls. It's an in-game picture. Enjoy...
