    I'm getting my shit together after a recent shit turn of events. My actual life takes a much higher priority than making a game for you whiny kids.

    Besides, if this project is suppose to be a "community" effort, shouldn't, you know, the community put some effort instead of depending on key people?

    Also, Matwek, thank you very much for your contributions. I'm sorry if I haven't been able to comment on your work but I appreciate it much and will get back to you as soon as possible.

    My main concern was that I just didn't want to end up swamping the 'level 0 artwork/level design' topics with edited posts and double posts.

    It's almost poetic, it is... When many come together with no leader and all are equal, each will bicker for their own image to be made. Yet when one is in power and calls the shots, the followers may begin to resent their lack of control, or become dependent on their leaders hand. It is an ironic twist of fate, man will want all when given some, want instructions when given guidance, and want freedom when given a spanking.



    Translation: People are never just content with things anymore.

    Or just people can't find the time to do anything, why is it that whenever this project loses interest for a few days people get all philosophical.
    If you want to contribute then do it, if you don't want to then don't. Its pretty simple

    Maybe I was a bad leader, but we had a lot of work, concepts, pixel art, and good ideas on the old board.
    Being treated like this doesn't motivate people anymore.

    Y'know, I'm guessing THIS is why companies never let former CEO's meet the current ones. They always argue, as in this case with community project managers.

    I DONE MAKED GAMES.
    Here, I tried community and it didn't work.

    My approach was something like "Guys, the best options are (a) and (b). Which one do you think?" only for people to not listen, add more options, or focus on retarded shit like CANADIAN ZONE in lieu of actually trying to deconstruct and understand what exactly makes a game "Sonicky".

    A good strong leader is what's good for you. Not sure about one that calls you all faggots inbetween breaths, though :3

    Ultima isn't a "random member", look at his join date, he is a Tech Member AND an Oldbie, while you are a random member.

    Besides, Ultima is right. This project should be renamed to "Sonic Chimpo" or something along that line.

    tech member, oldbie,... whatever he is, he still IS a random member. He hasn't done much for this project, so I don't see a reason as to why he (or anyone else, for that matter) is complaining. I'm not trying to insult Ultima (in case you feel like), it's just those kind of posts that put people on inactive.

    Dude was hacking Sonic ROMs over half a decade ago. He has a valid point, and the standing to make it.

    I still like, how Phobeus and rika saw "Sonic 4"
    People was able to talk about everything whitout
    leader throwing shit on their back.

    Also, this starts look like its some cheap disney game.
    Damn it! This is always coming to this... But thats my opinion and it won't change.

    Well do something about it. I admit the stuff I posted on the artwrok section isn't exactly great but it was mainly to try and get things up and running again and to provide people with something to work with rather than starting from scratch. Constructive critisim has its place but its no good if people don't offer up an alternative.

    Okay, number one, cut the elitist bullshit, people. It doesn't matter who kind of forum status someone is or how long they've been around—it does not make them "better" than someone else. Get that idea out of your head right now.

    Secondly, stop fucking whining. I'm tired of seeing this from all sides, and I'm about to suspend the next person who comes in here just to have a fucking stuck-up attitude or strut in like they have something important to say that is supposedly "better" than what everyone else has said so far. Keep your smartassed comments to yourselves—nobody cares about them.

    Finally, "Sonic 4" was an absolute failure in every single respect, and anybody who was ever actually following the project knew that. The only reason it ever made any progress up to this point is because it was moved to this forum, and because someone like Chimpo actually delivered some form of coherent leadership. I don't like how much of a dick he is as the rest of you, but at the end of the day, he gets shit done. And you don't. So stop whining about how horrible of a person he is and either draw some goddamn pixel art or shut the hell up. This is not a democracy.

    Jesus christ.

    ran out of motivation.

    Matwek, I like you art actually (Because I can't do better myself)
    But its unfitting. Sigh...
    I wan't to see whole thing, before saying anything like that.

    Rika's and Phobeus's art looked so right.
    It looked like new oldschool sonic game.

    Youre also whining tweaker. this is just how you see things.
    Don't take it so dramatic way...
    (Sorry for using your line)
