    Looks very hellish, which is what I wanted to do with Arid Temple when it was called "The Inferno"

    Destructiox that back ground is kind of odd and you should probably make those bricks a lot bigger. As a rule in Sonic games the foreground patterns are bigger than what you've got there. I like you're hud its nice and modern.

    The art was originally created by markeyjester, destrictiox proberly asked for it as markey was scrapping some levels before.

    Is this something as simple as copying the dynamic level events from HCZ to ICZ, or have you actually recoded this yourself to duplicate the effects?

    My thoughts exactly, hex edit? man that must be hard to do. But please, enlighten us.

    Ok, so this isn't as hard to do as many people think. No hex edit, no assembly mod, just use of already existing code. I'll explain.
    The Knuckles encounters are objects that are placed, but only work on specific X/Y axis. The art dynamically loads, as does the palettes and coding. I changed an object to the HCZ2 encounter object in ICZ2 and placed it at the same place, and sure enough, it works. The platform underneath however was more difficult. I tried using the standard bridge object, but the sub id didn't work the same way in ICZ, so I tried the same sub id on a different object (The breakable platforms) and luckily, it works. I don't know where these platforms are used in conjunction with a Knuckles event, but there is coding for them. The rest is a simple layout change to accomodate.
    Make of this what you will, but I thought the results were rather cool.

    Just to clarify, I wasn't implying that it being simple made it any less impressive, I was just curious as to how things like this were handled in S3K

    Oh, right. I was a bit unsure, but now you know. Interestingly, all the Knuckles enounters are the same main object id with different subids, but they all have hard coded locations that they work at. You can move them slightly, but the screen lock is always in the same place for them, hindering full movement and manual placement.

    On a side note, I tried to move CNZ2's Knuckles' lights out encounter to HCZ1 and well... I'll let these images do the talking. (No, this isn't being kept in the final)

    You also die if you go downward on the Y axis too fast after triggering this, as the screen boundary lowers, but not fast enough.

    The palette on the second picture made me curious about how the game handles it on that point: Is a new palette data being used from an external file or are the colours being put down by, say, each colour -4? Or is the palette I see there just the one from dark CNZ?

    So... its cool in all, though I'm still wondering what you actually used in order to move the data/replace. I mean you need at least an hex editor or something to edit s3k. Am I right?

    Selbi: It loads Flooded CNZ2's palette.
    AnimeMaster: ESEII, like I have since the beginning. Just switched an object ID to the HCZ Knuckles cutscene object.

    Anyway, I'd rather not discuss it further in here. There's a place for this sort of discussion and I don't think this thread is it.

    Ah right, didn't think it was THAT simple. Anyways I agree, lets move on. I like the CNZ idea, though perhaps something needs to be replaced for the lights out cus it doesn't really fit with HCZ.
