  1. Indeed, it's not like this is something that can't be decided later. Perhaps a decision will become clearer to a majority when development is further along.
     
  2. My latest work:

    Shield!

    Whoops. Sorry for that one. :)
     
  7. My new shield with (alpha and experimental) lightning effects (and at 4x!):

    The white border is because of the transparency.

    See it here on a white bg

    Why aren't the outside parts disappearing as the inside parts travel outward? The whole point of the separated frames was to create a transparent effect on the shield, simulated by very quick flashing. If you don't flash any of the shield, the animation doesn't make sense. You'd do well to rectify that.

    Outside of that, looking pretty good! :)
     
  9. The gif file doesn't flash fast enough to create this effect (I tryied) so I put in that form, but the in-game shield has different frames

    I don't know how you all will feel about this, but I think the shield should be redesigned to look better. For instance, the shield can be truly transparent. As for the flashing, I think it was also to give the shield some life and appear as if it's got a high-frequency pulsating effect on it. That can still be worked in to a new design. I think the old design is pretty limited (If I remember correctly, it interferes with Sonic's rolling animation) and it can be improved upon.

    But seriously, if this idea 'rocks the boat' too much, then please forget it.
     
  12. Ok...

    Obs: The outside part is shown between every frame!

    I just want to throw my 2 cents into this whole "Pause Menu" discussion.
    How about something along the lines of the Sonic Mega Collection + Menu ?

    If you take away the Title screen image, the megadrive and the horribly overlapping GAMES text over the score, you end up with something looking quite neat and professional.

    Just an idea.

    I think sometimes it's better to let dead issues stay dead. :P

    Things like menus, titles, whatever - they're all ridiculously minor details in the greater scheme of things. Once the levels are up, running, tested, the whole nine yards, then I think would be the time to hash all that out. I'm not saying to completely ignore them, as even beta demos have some sort of placeholders, but placeholders are all that'll be needed for some time yet.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure that we all decided that the pause menu, if to be implemented at all, would wait until after Sonic 2 HD was released and work began on the "enhanced" version with different music tracks and options etc.

    I agree with that sentiment. We really don't want that shit starting again.

    Do you have any animation of your last enhanced shaded shield?
