    Ever wanted to play as Tails in Sonic Chaos' special stages? Well now you can. This was a pretty sloppy hack, probably the sloppiest hack I've made. Tails can fly forever, until he collides with the ground. (This was to allow him to be able to collect the first chaos emerald.) I disabled the timer update in the special stage, which means you have all the time you want. (This was to prevent the timer from expiring allowing Tails to collect the first chaos emerald.) I may make a better version of this hack and possibly see if I can add hazards to the special stages to make them more difficult. :P I know in early versions of the game Tails was allowed to enter the special stages, but for some reason they changed the code to prevent him from entering the special stages. I suppose it's because the very first special stage can only be completed if Sonic has the rocket shoes. https://www.mediafire.com/?kv5rklrzrn3b4df

    I'm impressed by the amount of work that went into the boom mod. All the way to the ending. Great job, you monster.

    Man, this hack is awesome. You should add Sonic's quote from the trailers: "Rings! Om nom nom nom nom nom!!!"

    Sprite work is completely amazing. And... how many unique voice samples did you manage to cram into this thing?

    EDIT: Little bug report. Sometimes when I jump, the voice comes out as a... dog yip? Is that intentional? Or did something with the sample get mangled?

    Incase anyone is interested and doesn't know, or not, whatever.
    (Copy and Past from SSRG)

    So here is one of my mini hacks, Back 2 The Future. So, while I was having problems with Sonic 1: Sonic CD Edition I decided to work on another small project. It was an idea I was going to implement as a bonus gimick to S1:SCD but then thought it wouldn't need it. So I decided to play around and like the idea I did. And thus this hack was born. As you may have gathered it's time travel!...but sort of different. You use monitors to go to the past and future. But sonic and the level all appear differently. A literal past and future version.

    Now since this is a small hack it's only GHZ and that's because I never planned to go any further since I wanted to finish S1:SCD. Anyways things to note:

    1) Monitors are either at the beginning or near a Lamppost(to avoid progressing through the level again).
    2)Apart from seeing a future, there is no real reward to go to the future except on act 3(Automatically)
    3)GHZ is still GHZ so you want to time travel to see the new stuff.
    4) Sonic in the past is normal sonic, but in the future he can spindash.
    5) Robotnik has stolen an emerald in the past, and one can be found.
    GHZ - Act 1 - Find emerald, Act 2 - Defeat Robotnik
    6) You get a good future ghz but no other reward for emeralds.
    7) Apart from the begining, the past act 1 is still pretty much the same ghz but act 2 for past is slightly different and the futures are all completely unique layouts.
    8) Future music and past music.
    9) No Sonic 1 bonus stage since this is only one level.
    10) Bonus panel for the past, Sonic gives an extra life, explanation mark gives you a continue.
    How do you get them? I'm going to leave that a secret for now. If people don't figure it out I'll tell you.
    11) The shield and invincibility for the past and future mappings are off and I tried to fit best I could.
    12) The boss of act 3 has a slight camera bug, not sure on that.

    If I missed anything please let me know. Even though I have tested this and I got others to, I won't be surprised if I missed something so please let me know and I can clarify. I didn't think this needed a topic.

    Story:
    One day, Eggman grumbled to himself "How can I beat Sonic? He always foils my plans. What, with his jumping, and other dastardly abilities.". He then stopped, because he can't talk. He's a mute character. Suddenly, it hit him! Grounder had dropped a bucket of concrete mix on his head. The thick liquid slowly pooled at his feet. "Grounder! You bumbling bag of bolts!", he barked, stomping in a fit of rage. Or, he would have, had the quickly-drying mixture not made his legs feel as heavy as cinder blocks. He paused halfway through his temper tantrum, a plan beginning to unfold in his mind.

    In a hurry, he hobbled into his Eggmobile, each step harder than the last, and paid a visit to Sonic's place. Wafting away the stench of chilli dogs, he filled Sonic's shoes with concrete mix.

    Sonic 1 - No Jump Challenge, it's fair, I swear
