    Thanks! Ngl, it was quite fun to work with Mean Bean tbh.

    I'll see what I can do in the art department as I am not clearly the best at it but I am going to attempt to bring something cool to the table regardless!

    After some hard work figuring out how Mean Bean's mappings work and manually editing them (and adding some too), we finally have a more pleasant to look at Green Hill!

    That's better, like the use of those beta blocks around the boxes, nice!

    If you port the special stage from Sonic 2 you would give a new meaning to the "3D pipes" screensaver.

    For this object, I made my first proper lookup table. I think it's neat!
    Code (Text):

    2. ; LUT FORMAT
    3. ; #$A bytes/index
    4. ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5. ; ObjectID          ; DPLCFrame

    So, a new update on the Mean Bean hack. Not only have we updated Green Hill Zone's art to have a better background for the play window and less repetitive grass patterns (with help from E-122-Psi) but we also have figured out how to get custom DACs into the hack. So enjoy the cursed audio of hearing Sonic 3's drums in Mean Bean Machine:

    The first proper preview of a new ROM hack I have been working on called Sonic: A New Adventure.

    I've been working on this project in my spare time for quite a few years, without a goal or deadline, and I have been trying to break out of my comfort zone with attempts at art editing and minor code changes. I am enjoying working on the project, and will have more to show in the future.

    The music is being composed by MarkeyJester, and through our collaborative efforts on the ideas side, I feel that it is helping shape the experience that little bit more compared to previous projects.

    I like it bro!

    The name really suits the art, ties it all together and give it a feeling that its another place near emerald hill!

    It’s familiar, yet new at the same time.

    Keep pushing the boundaries of that comfort zone!

    Ooh, I recognize that 10-ring sound. It's from S1EE, isn't it?

    Correction, it's from Sonic 3D Flickies' Island/Blast in Saturn/PC version.

    Aah, I see. Never played 3DB on the Saturn nor PC so I assumed it was from EE. Thanks, though.

    I've been following development on their Youtube page for the past month, and today the first version was released. Really looking forward to playing this.

    Oops, forgot to post the proper announcement here, but in case you did not know, Sonic 2 - Score Rush, direct followup to Sonic 1 - Score Rush, is a thing! And it's in the making! Here's the main menu, by the way!



    More info about this status update, as well as the development status, can be found in the description!

    Sega CD "Mode 1" is a mode in which the cartridge ROM is mapped to $000000-$3FFFFF and which the Sega CD memory is mapped to $400000-$7FFFFF, which happens when a game cartridge is plugged in. As a result, the cartridge is booted into, whereas without it, the mapping is switched around, and it boots into the BIOS. Regardless of mode, the Sega CD can be activated and programmed, where you can take advantage of any feature that the Sega CD offers, even if you don't have a disc in the drive.

    This here is an example of the Sega CD's main graphics operation being utilized in a ROM hack of Sonic 1. Sonic 1 was not remade to a disc game at all, it's still a cartridge ROM, but with the Sega CD activated, with its scaling and rotation capability being used to render Sonic's sprite. This is a PoC to show that Sega CD "Mode 1" can be used for more than just CD audio, but anything that the Sega CD can do with a disc game.
