    Well I figured sence I've been here over 2 years now, I might as well try to get my full membership, so I'll post up the Sonic 2 hack I've been working on.

    I started it last year actualy, but all I did was port HPZ (properly in hex, not ESEII), I haven't got to much done sence then 'cause it's been sitting around my D drive sence that time untill just recently, but I've got plans for it now, and a couple screen shots.

    [​IMG]

    Some experemental art for EHZ's grass, I need to add a bit more shading to it, but that'll have to be after a straghten out the palette a bit, and ignore sonic's really, REALLY freaked up palette, he's gunna be getting replaced by my furry, Emily who's in my avatar ATM.

    [​IMG]

    ARZ palette edit, that's underwater, I plan on making it a sunset ice themed level.

    [​IMG]

    Same as above but not underwater.

    I have a few levels planned, for HTZ it's gunna be inside a volcano, flowing lava in the BG, probably gunna use the MCZ boss at the end of it 'cause it'll match the level more then the current one.

    I'm not sure what level slot this level will take but I want to make a desert castle type level with sand falls and such, act 2 you'll actualy enter the castle part and if I can learn ASM I might make it so the palette changes and level art for that act.

    Also, I was thinking of a jungle type level, not like wood zone where you're in trees, but more like White Jungle or Green Forest from Sa2, I want to in some way try to use the MCZ vines in that one, maybe a bit different art, but same programing.

    I won't be making a release too soon, mainly 'cause I'm sick and I'm slower to do things when I'm sick, but if anyone would offer to be a future beta tester go ahead and tell me, 2 or 3'll be enough.

    So as to not be rambling on all night, Comments? Questions? Free Stuff? post =P.

    Wow, I'm getting major deja-vu on that ARZ pallet - it bears an uncanny resemblance to my ARZ pallet from Sonic 2 Megamix, haha.

    Sounds like you know what your priorities are with this hack, though, and that's good. Take it slow, no rush; things will develop as you eventually work on things for fun.

    Same as what the others said. It would be a good idea to have darker palettes, sence your furry is very dark in complextion.

    Thanks guys, for the comments and the birthday wishes, anyway, I'm gunna try to use some more netral shades of colour for her in this so as to fit in with the levels, so she won't look as dark as normaly, although, once I learn ASM I think I'll be able to make it load different palettes for her each level, if I can do that then I'll change the palettes to fit the level.

    Oh, and Tweaker, I've never played Sonic 2 Megamix, just sonic 1 Megamix =P.

    Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updating, been busy with things lately, but good news, I've got started on some new art, as most of you should know, I got a DS lite & sonic rush on my birthday, well, I've taken a liking to the level Water Palace, and I decided to re-make it in my hack, it's not very far along, and it's far from being pixel by pixel the same level, it's sorta my version of the level, anyway...

    [​IMG]

    And yah, I am aware the BG's freaked up with the palette, but I'll be making a new one soon so it doesn't really matter much.

    Comments?

    Not TOO big of an update, but sence I'm getting to the last of my trial posts I'd best post some updates here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just some misc. touch ups on the art, and a sort of preveiw of how the level layout will be, excuse the random rings in the second shot, I forgot to move them before closing sonED.

    And could I ask you guys to make some suggeustions on what I should add and change level art wise in those? 'cause the art looks just a tad plain to me, it might jsut be me but I'd like some oppinions anyway, thanks.

    Nice job so far, You should change the green back to black in the BG and Re-shade the BG using the palette line the top and bottom parts of the BG are on :P.

    I'm liking this so far. I'm glad to see a new person attempting an art edit, and its looking pretty good. If you can, you should look into maybe drawing a completely new background for the zone. But regardless, nice work. I look forward to seeing more.

    Sonic looks not really blue on your top screen, or is that just the screendump you made?
