    (I know, geocities sucks, but this is just temporary, because my Tripod.co.uk ftp doesn't work right now. I'll upload there from school whenever I have a chance)

    It was fun making this hack, and very easy. It just started by me removing the Rings in Sonic 1, then it just progressed and progessed into this. Now, all of the Rings and Object Monitors are turned into deadly red jumping rings. I would like to see anyone get through one of the levels like this without getting a game over. :P (because I can't >_< I think I made it TOO hard).

    Have fun! :D

    EDIT: Oh, by the way, if it doesn't work, right click and save it.

    EDIT 2: If you don't want to download from geoshitties, try this:

    What the fucking fuck is this fucking awesome hack? I have never seen anything like it. Oh, and I can't manage to finish act 1 of GHZ. Very hard. And fucking amazing. You must teach me how you did this. Holy shit...

    *Goes back to play*

    Final Zone is pretty easy, if you get there of course :P

    hahaha... this is pretty cool. It may be impossible to get through certain parts of the game though, like at the beginning of Spring Yard act 1 where the red ring keeps jumping on the vertical red spring.

    I probably should get back to work on my site someday...
    This sounds like fun but the darn link won't work. I tried right-clicking too, but to no avail... ;)

    "Unexpected end of archive" error in the ZIP file. O_o

    Also, consider uploading an IPS patch instead of the full ROM.

    Looks like some screwed-up raster deformation there. And we see the debug mode showing at the edge there. Looks to me like a

    This hack is VERY HARD! I can't get past the first down-pit. I'm very sad. Nice job, Fiz.

    I don't know why it doesn't download correctly for some people. I'm going to upload it to my Tripod.co.uk at my school once I get a chance :\.

    wtf? I knew I should have put it into a RAR instead of a ZIP >_<. Meh.

    *looks at those screenshots* WTF o__o I don't know what caused that. Very odd.

    I'm glad all of you guys like it :P. I am pleased.

    That's one difficult hack...and SYZ act 1 is impossible. Nonetheless, nice work Fiz! This shall keep me entertained for a certain amount of years.

    For years? XD What, is your goal to actually finish the game legitly (without the emeralds of course)? Impossible, really. :P You would have to have some serious mad skillz.

    Yip, that's my objective.

    Well, I may not have "mad skillz", but I have a large amount of patience.....and a spoon.

    Sorry for the double post, but I need to post a simple explanation for how this was done.

    Code (Text):
    1. Open up S1_RING.BIN in a hex editor and follow me along with this:
    2.  
    3.  
    4. HOW THE RINGS BECAME RED:
    5.  
    6. Offset 7D020 - RING Object | Instruction: 70 00
    7. Offset 7D040 - RING Object | Hex Value : 17
    8.  
    9. Explanation for 17:
    10.  
    11. Divide the 17 up into 1 and 7. 1 is the colour of the ring. You can change this from anything between 0-3 to change it's colour.
    12.  
    13. These are valid colour values:
    14. Colour Value|Byte 7
    15.  &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;0|7
    16.  &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;1|7
    17.  &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;2|7
    18.  &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;3|7
    19.  
    20. The 7 is actually part of the next byte, which is B2. 7B2 is where the RING graphics are stored in the memory.
    21.  
    22. So: 17 B2 = Uses palette line 1, and uses the graphics at memory location 7B2!
    23.  
    24.  
    25. HOW TO CHANGE THE RING SPINNING FRAMES:
    26.  
    27. Offset: 7D097 - Hex Value : 00
    28.  
    29. Explanation for offset 7D097 :
    30.  
    31. This is what makes the rings in the game spin around. If you change 00 to any number between 0 and 3, you will change the frame of the RING. 0 means its the first frame, 1 is the second, 2 is the third, 3 is the fourth. More frames don't exist in the RING object.
    32.  
    33.  
    34. HOW TO CHANGE THE SPEED OF THE JUMPING RINGS:
    35.  
    36. Offsets: 7D075 and 7D07F - Hex Value: C0
    37.  
    38. Explanation:
    39.  
    40. Change the hex value "C0" to any values between "00" and "FF" to change the speed of the jumping rings. The speed for the rings in the hack is "10"
    Hopefully this helps a little bit (somehow).
