    Okay, so, after some discussion with the what's left of Owarisoft, we have come to decide to cancel Dr. Yundong. It was by no means an easy decision, but pretty much nobody is motivated to work on it anymore, and we generally feel the project has become a zombie of some sort. As such, I will be dumping a bunch of videos and screenshots here, and I'll even throw in some extras as well.

    Notes
    • For level names, the smiley and sad faces represent "act 1" and " act 2" respectively.
    • Lover's sprites were originally done in the Sonic 1 art style, but most of them have been changed to VAdaPEGA's art style.
    • There's a lot of placeholder/unfinished assets here.

    This level was based on Russian video game stereotypes, hence the Tetris blocks everywhere and the bootleg enemy. (The pink cat is "Pink Jelly", a reference to Super New Year Cart 15-in-1)

    This level was going to use that graphics priority bug/"feature" to emulate Sonic Mania's Studiopolis windows, and possibly also use it for a spotlight hazard, since in this level, Lover is on the run.

    This level was going to be a shoot 'em up, with the enemies being UFOs and the final boss being a giant kitsune.


    Note: The layout here was a placeholder.

    The art here was a placeholder. It was planned to be redone by VAdaPEGA.


    This was the boss for act 1. Fail the quiz and lose a life. Questions were randomized.

    This level was based on American stereotypes. It was going to have Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson as bosses, and your goal was to rescue Abraham Lincoln.

    This level was going to be an abandoned, haunted carnival/circus.

    All art here was obviously placeholder. Background art was at least done by VAdaPEGA and Mr. Cat.

    It was called a "trip", because in the game, Lover was going to trip out on mushrooms and hallucinate the special stage.

    The overworld was going to be a place for shopping, sidemissions, and overall navigation. Shown here was just the base engine and some implemented assets.

    ...and double post because lol 20 image limit.

    If a mod could merge these somehow, and get rid of the "double post" etc. parts, that'd be nice.

    Hmmm, what was exactly this sonic high on cocaine thing, anyway?

    This "sonic high on cocaine thing" was a project I was helping work on called Dr. Yundong (translates to "Dr. Fitness" from Chinese). It was in development since early 2016 as some kind of ode to Russian/Chinese bootlegs in the form of a ROM hack, hence, then numerous references to bootlegs, and the Russian and Chinese languages and stereotypes.

    Honestly, for some reason, we never managed to have the entire plot written down. From memory, I do know that the entire thing was a film shot by fellow community member JoenickROS, and that in the ending, Lover, the main character (a Sonic + caterkiller fusion), would ruin the final scene and get chased off. Lover's partner in crime and alcoholic, Schnii (a red panda), is on the run from the cops for drug possession. In the game, he mainly just follows Lover around in his little portable parlor of his in the overworld, with a shop and all that.

    That's what I remember, at least.

    A pretty dark story for a hack, got to say. xD

    Anyway, it's somewhat sad to see canceled projects, even more with vadapega's art on it.

    I've merged your posts but apparently I can't edit it without getting an error about too many images, so it'll have to stand as it is =P

    Thank you, I appreciate that~

    The tool to make that isn't quite finished yet, but pre-rendered sprites which lack hand detail qualities about them work very well with it! I was surprised myself with the results.

    Now I know I have already shown off the 2P verses mode to my hack a couple of months ago on here, but this a whole different update to the 2P verses mode! It also shows extra features that I added such as an option to turn the timer "on" or "off".



    Hopefully by next month I can show a trailer to tied the entirely of this project up!

    Wrote a 3 shield monitor for S3K in about 10 minutes. Would say it's pretty good for my first S3K hack.

    That's pretty interesting. So how does the thing work? Does it cycle through all the shields or does it pick one at random?

    While it does call for the RNG routine, it just cycles through them. Bubble > Flame > Lightning. As displayed on the monitor itself.

    Kind of off subject, but your hack reminds me exactly why I don't like Classic Sonic in modern stuff. The objects look huge compared to the sprites.

    Reborn in flames like a phonenix, reforged, as if by Hephaestus himself, Hellfire Saga is back on SHC, and better than ever.
    See you this Contest Week!

    I want to say the second ball from the left (and right) doesn't scale properly but if you've managed what I think you've managed, I'm really not sure it matters
