    Remember that #retro discussion on November the 30th 2010, that opened the topic I posted last year for GHZ Adventure? Specifically, 2 lines of it?

    Hm. There's an idea. =P

    So I was pondering a while ago while playing Sonic Generations that while Classic Sonic has the existing GHZ Adventure as a text adventure game, no-one's done anything for Modern. Let's fix that!

    SONIC THE HEDGEHOG IN: GREEN HILL ZONE ADVENTURE 1.10 - GENERATIONS EDITION

    New features:

    * Play as Modern Sonic, with a brand new storyline!
    * Modern Sonic has new moves available at his disposal that Classic does not - Boost, Slide and Homing Attack your way through the level!
    * Quick Time Events (sort of)!
    * A hidden surprise for those who get to the end, as Modern, with 50 Rings...
    * Some more Easter Eggs!
    * For those who missed it the first time or just want to again, you can still play as Classic Sonic in the original 1.0 version of GHZ Adventure, with a couple of bug fixes since the last release.
    * Also like the first release, the game still features no DRM whatsoever! In fact, GHZ:A is GPLv3!

    Just like last time, you have a single goal - get Sonic to the end of the level and get the highest possible score. Collect rings, break open itemboxes, defeat badniks, fly into a massive pile of rings - it's all here, with a few tiny alterations to make it workable as a text adventure game.

    I'd also like to thank ScarredSun for giving me the idea for the surprise, from her initial Retro wiki entry of Green Hill Zone Adventure. :) I'd actually thought about adding this even before the Modern idea came up - the extra character just adds a bit more content as a bonus. =P

    SCREENSHOT!

    Same installation notes as before:

    * If you're on Windows and don't have Python installed, you'll want this one: http://overlord.digibase.ca/ghza-110-exe.rar - download the RAR, extract the contents, and run the ghza.exe. Don't extract the zip that's inside the RAR - this will stop the interpreter working. It runs on Windows 7 with no issues I could see on the machine I tried it on - however if you're on an earlier OS you may need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) - there's a link on this page to the SP1 version, don't get that one. It contains the wrong version of MSVCR90.dll for this. I wouldn't bother with this unless you see a MSVCR90.dll error, though.

    * If you're on Windows and DO have Python installed, are running Linux, or are a Macfag, you will want/need this one: http://overlord.digibase.ca/ghza-110.rar - download, extract all, run ui.pyw. It's built against Python 2.6, also note you will need wxPython installed.

    Note - if you're having problems with it belching out an error on non-Windows systems along the lines of "UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xa9 in position 43: invalid start byte" , do a find and replace on ui.pyw & backend.py for © to ( C ) - seems there's an encoding issue with non-default-ASCII I didn't spot due to not testing on a Linux box. >_> Removing the copyright symbol fixes this.
