    OK Guys,,, Double post with updates on the texture.,
    Took 3 days to develop the tech to reverse engineer some textures. and man am I beat....

    Picture A:
    Screen capture from the E3 Promo video.

    Picture B:
    The Leaked DEF textures. (apparently someone on the original Xtreme team scaled down this version from a larger one.)

    Picture C:
    My step 1 custom Photoshop filter to give back details lost from picture B
    Combined with.. drum roll !
    My step 2 custom Photoshop filter used to re-add the Baked in lighting shown in the video. ( it even casts per pixel shadows!)
    ( I'm happy with how this has turned out, sure its not perfect but its loads better than B4.....

    At first I Hand painted some normal and specular maps and baked the textures in max.
    however the results were not so close even though they kicked serous ass.

    More updates to come ! Soon maybe.......

    In case anyone wants to see the video @ 0:33

    Every step counts and you are doing a good job. The magazine images are coming to life one by one.

    I just gotta say, man, you are easily one of the most patient and driven guys on this site. Everything you're doing here is fantastic, and I can't wait to see where it goes! Looking forward to something playable :D

    Yeah there may be another playable coming in December , and let me tell you now. It wont be another X-mas demo.
     
  6. I was just now looking around on YouTube, and found a video on cancelled Sonic games. Of course, Sonic X-Treme was on the list, and it showed some gameplay footage with a character other than Sonic. The graphics didn't look familiar from the other bits of footage I've seen or any of your recreated stuff that you've shown, so I thought I'd show you and see if there was anything you didn't have yet. Here's the video, it's the last game on the list. Actual game footage starts at around 8:40.

    EDIT: Weird, it's not actually embedding the video. Sorry about that.

    That link is a mirror.

    Andrew can't fix it without a reupload somewhere else.

    Yeah that Tiara gameplay was exactly what I had questions about months before in one of my posts. Andrew75 had said that for now he just wants to get the main game of Sonic made. Other people could always break the Tails, Knuckles and Tiara gameplay modes from Sonic X-Treme videos and pictures into separate fangames (which I think would be pretty cool). It would make sense to do it that way because their gameplay mechanics were not even the same as Sonic's. If all someone had to do was hack Clockwork Knight 2, Tiara's game could end up being the easiest of those other three to do.

    Hey guys, bad news , I lost 10 days of work to a power outage, a real set back,
    and yes there was a lot of work done in that time,,,,, sigh......
    Over 1600 dollars in SSDs, a raid card controller and standard hard disks may be busted.
    least I made some backups 10 days ago. This is very annoying.
    Sorry I wont be able to make the December public release this year.
    there were 8 levels ported over from the DEF file leaks that were planned for this years demo.
    The 3D bridge system was almost complete as well ( the ones that expand and contract, thanks to Nekit for making a path vertex point exporter for the def files)

    Sorry to hear that, man - must be quite upsetting to lose significant progress on something you've been working so hard on. Is there no way of potentially recovering the data to save yourself having to redo that 10 days' work?

    If not, don't stress yourself out trying to get it done qiuckly - take your time. I'm sure people will be extremely pleased to see any demo version whenever it's ready for release, but don't rush yourself trying to meet their expectations of a deadline that's no longer possible.
