    I just gave it a quick run in Google Translator, I might register there just to drop a comment or two.

    edit: nevermind, the captcha keeps on giving me errors even if I always type it right. I even thought to use cyrillic letters, but I got an error even with a captcha of numbers only. Oh well.

    And this is why they lost the Cold War :v:

    All stupidity aside, they have to be pretty ballsy to try and pull shit like this. Also gotta love how the prick in question is constantly watching this thread.

    (Sorry if I come across as an asshole, however. I'd be pretty pissed off personally if somebody tried to steal my work.)

    True, true.

    Why do they even bother trying to steal?

    Tip: there is a little sign near captcha, it says 'type letters in reverse order'

    Also, russian google translate is kinda stupid.

    Here's a simple solution. If someone steals your copyrighted work, you have a legal way to get compensated: sue them! Of course, this doesn't work if your work is an unauthorized derivative work of someone else's copyright, in which case, you have no standing.

    About the only thing that I'm somewhat impressed by this hack is the Russian, the rest of it is a mess.

    Crazy Russians, you should see some of the videos I've seen posted by Russians! NOTHING is too taboo from them NOT to capture on video and upload to the internet!

    Welp, this.
    Though I agree with the general sentiment of "at least respect other people's work," at the end of the day, complaining about hacks being stolen is like calling the police to report that your weed has been stolen.

    That being said, Vladikcomper and any other Russian hackers, why don't you work with us rather than against us? Clearly you all possess the same skills that people here have, so it'd make more sense to share the love rather than try to just rebrand stuff. I know there's something of a language barrier, but we do have a few folks who are bilingual and translator tools in this day and age. Russia is kind of a punchline to some jokes here, but I certainly don't think this community is racist or anything; if we're coming off like that, I apologize.

    I like how the content has been stolen only from my hack, yet I said it was ok for me (in fact I just sent him two more songs) and everyone else is attacking Russia for unknown reasons.

    Fun times.

    Hello, everyone. I'm Vladikcomper, who made Sonic High Force.
    I really didn't want to stole Nineko's song, first time I thought he ripped them too. I'm just a beginner, which was making his first hack and suddenly learned how to rip music. I liked Nineko's music, so decided to rip it. Now, I understood my mistake and apologised to Nineko (see my comment at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXoKP2ioGd8). Nineko allowed me to use his songs in my hack, if I would put his name into Credits.
    Now, I think, the problemm solved.

    All I will say on the matter is this:
    The music itself seems to be ripped/implemented okay, though the selection for which song goes to which course seems kinda.... questionable for a few stages (Scrap Brain Zone comes to mind).
    I see he corrected the ordering on the level select screen, this is a nice touch.
    Spindash: Nice to see it implemented here, though perhaps reading part two of the "spindash in sonic 1" howto would help give it that polished look?
    Level design: Some of the levels aren't redesigned yet, but understandable at this early stage. I suppose they'll get a layout tweak eventually. As for the levels that were changed, I like some of the layout designs, but others are confusing. Also, there is waay too much spring chaining or whatever it's called (being propelled from one spring into a series of other springs which basically automatically propel you through a portion of the level), at least in Green Hill Zone.

    Special Stages: I could find no way of entering the special stage. I tried passing a checkpoint with 50 rings and tried having 50 rings at the end of the stage. I therefore can only imagine that you have somehow disabled access to the special stage for some reason or another. I will note that Sonic uses the original Sonic 1 pallet in the special stage.

    Otherwise, it's pretty much an okay hack. Run-of-the mill. New layouts are always fun. Some musics could have been placed better, and the spindash needs a little tweaking, but the game does not suffer for those minor drawbacks.

    When I was ripping music, it tested it replacing the original music86.bin. That song stayed there just for fun.
    However, SBZ can be played only through Level Select Menu.

    I don't like Sonic 2 spindash animation. No, I just don't want to see it in my hack.

    Yeah, some levels haven't finished yet. Especially, MZ3, its layout is scary.

    I disabled access to them. Their translation wasn't finished and I thought nobody liked them...
    And because I placed chaos emeralds in levels.


    Thanks. :thumbsup:

    Oh god no... Now the russians are dominating the good places too...
    About your hack... T'wasnt bad... but it wasnt good either. Fix the layouts and add some custom palette or perhaps new art. Art that you draw.

    I'll change palettes in some levels. But I have no idea how to change some palettes without spoiling them.
    As for art, I draw all cyrillic letters and the chaos emerald (in monitor). I'll try to add new level art, but not soon.

    Wouldn't it be better to split this topic now that nineko has sorted the situation out?
