    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Silence for almost a week and a half...

    Something in store, staff?

    I hope something happens soon, my excitement of this project is slowly eroding.

    If there's going to be no updates, then why not at least allow threads and stuff? I mean at least there was SOME activity before...now it's just dead.

    That was pretty disgraceful eh... I was waiting for that game for years. Why wait until the guy has just finished work after eight years of his life to finally kick up a fuss about the project? Just pathetic... Makes me wonder why Sonic fan games seem immune to this?

    The lack of response from us is due to everyone being incredibly busy with things going on in real life that have us all tied up. It was sad to hear that the remake got canned, and while we can't say with certainty what the official response to S2HD, we have our hopes that it will be a positive one.

    In light of talks I've had with Synergy lately, I'll be re-opening the Special Stage thread and at least one of the others so people can discuss things.

    New changelog update coming very soon.

    Yeah, it was really harsh how they waited until the project's release. That said, there's no chance that the people at Sega don't know about this project, though, so the lawyers would probably have pounced on this by now if there was a problem.

    One of Sega's dedicated community moderators already commented in this subforum (albeit as a fan, not a Sega affiliate), so we're farily certain Sega is aware of us. We've not heard anything directly from them and we're fine with that. We have put up a note on the Facebook page asking people to stop with the comparisons to Sonic Team, as that has never yielded positive results for any fan-made endeavor.

    Also, to give credit where credit is due, SoRR is far more than the work of just one person. There's a team credits section on the remake's website to that end.

    Yeah I just keep thinking of it as "the guy" (BomberLink). I mean the team. I think. Has Sega ever made much fuss over Sonic fan games (not a rhetorical question - I have no idea)?

    Oh gosh. They waited until SoRR was just completed to squash it. Perhaps S2HD's greatest asset is infact it's eternal development cycle. If Sega's waiting until this is finished before they take action against it, likely the people at the top calling for all these IP cases will be dead before the time arrives.

    I swear, If they actually squashed this project after it's completed I will go mad and try to go to Sega HQ in Sydney and F*** them up! (Not really) Seriously, SEGA and NINTENDO, if the fans are not infringing the rights to profitize these 'fan-games', Ask for permission before starting a fan-game, crediting them and the owners + makers of the game and their sprites then why the hell send a Cease & Desist up their asses?

    I don't get it, what is there to lose? Can't they be a competition if the fan-games are 'suppositively' better? Like take time to improve, rather than take legal action? Not being butthurt, just being rational.

    But knowing Sega, I hope they are cool with it. If not, then I'm going to download the crap out of it and share it with ppl anyway. See what they can do :P

    Fantastic animation, the only nitpick I can pull out is the top right leaf, two of the slits (the ones close together) bend in too much, but this is amazing!

    And how do the animated reflections work? I don't think they've been demonstrated in that changelog.

    I think the animation is a bit too fast. Could do with it being slowed down a bit to give it a more natural flow but overall it's very impressive.

    Sonica: I haven't the slightest what you're referring to sir. You must be seeing things. <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Yeah, I miffed a link and fixed it. Didn't think anyone would see the post within five seconds of my putting it up.</span>

    The animated reflections will be coming up in the next one.

    To be totally honest, I don't think this tree has enough rotating octagonal prisms in it.

    I do like the leaf swagger though.

    He's talking about this:

    These two slits bend far too much to the left during the animation. It's great, otherwise.

    Yep, that caught my eye also. The animation on the rest of the fronds is quite subtle, but that one in particular seems to distort weirdly all over. I take it the little gem bits aren't animated in this changelog? Do they animate as Sonic runs past or something?
