    Not exactly a project update, but I found this very cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiqiBUJWf1U

    Someone made a proper review of Megamix! It's very well done, too; I think it's a good introduction to the game to a general insider, don't you think? :)

    Well, Shadow's once the again the least special character of the three. :) It's a little true since he does feel he could use a little spicing up. Up to you guys, though.

    Cool to see Megamix getting more Internet lime light. I do think Megamix 4.0 when it's ready will blow a few people away if they're complementing the gameplay but are a little saddened by it otherwise being a recolor.

    I like playing as Shadow the most. Sonic's light dash gets me into trouble all the time, and... wait, Mighty is just Sonic 3 Sonic. And Shadow's Double jump get me out of trouble pretty often. That review reminded me, will all the classic zones be included in the final version, or are they on the way out?

    The old levels are still in.

    Also, I have no idea what's with all the Shadow hate. He's my best character. The Homing Attack and Double Jump combo is ace.

    Mighty's next for me, because of the shield control. I'm not too good with Sonic though.

    I prefer to play as Sonic with Mighty as a secondary. Shadow is blah for me because I have to get the spacing right for double jumps and homing attacks.

    Working on my art!
    Oddly enough I love playing as Shadow, just because I think the sprites made for him are awesome.

    I wouldn't mind Shadow so much if his running pose didn't look so awkward... I don't know what it is, but you just see too much of his body given the fact he's running "forwards" (Sidewards to us).

    I like Mighty's oldschoolness. He has a great soundtrack to him and he has a nifty shield storage technique. :D
    I like Shadow because he's so serious. His victory jingle is even serious, while even keeping the victorious sounding feel to it.
    Sonic is as classy as ever in this one. Plus, I like his light dash. That's a VERY creative gameplay technique! Doesn't Shadow have the same thing in Sonic Adventure 2 though? Eh. I guess he basically WAS a clone... You pulled off differentiating the two flawlessly though. :D

    About 4.0: Are there going to be almost all speedboosts and close calls, or is there going to be a lot more than that? I see you added a lot of speedboosts in the dark temple. All I saw was running running running. I hope to see a few puzzles involving them though. :3

    About the boss battle. I lovers iiiiit! ^.^ One thing though. The "K.O.!" should be only in the part with Robotnik playing dead. To add to the "Aha! Er, HEY!" effect.

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but when Shadow gets hurt, he is abruptly wearing Sonic's shoes. Plus, he looks bored when he's hit, and it looks like his running animation plays too fast, am I correct with that assumption?

    His running animation looks like he's shuffling his feet reeeeally fast.

    Well, he's wearing rocket skates, so that's kinda what he's doing. It would probably look better if it were slowed down, but it plays o fast I can't tell for sure

    We changed the running animation a while back after version 3.0... I don't think I ever showed it off.

    But yeah, it's no longer gay and uses about 9 frames. Nice and smooth, doesn't look awkward at all. :D

    :thumbsup: That would make Shadow too epic and he would become too popular once again, causing an imbalance in powers and causing him to have his own game again.

    that's right! Such a simple change would cause Shadow the hedgehog: 2! :(

    I highly doubt that changing Shadow's running animation would cause a Shadow the Hedgehog 2. I really do.

    This is probably my favorite Sonic 1 hack, the fact that it's not yet done brings joy to me. This is awesome.

    If they were to make it under the influence of Chimpo's art, it wouldn't suck. Also, does he still have Sonic's shoes when he gets hit?

    damn you Sega informer! we're all DOOMED!

    Anyway, in on-topic related news. Sounds good so far, the videos have all been great to watch and the offers of this hack are still sounding good as ever. Also rather interested in Shadows new running animation. Don't get me wrong, the sprites in the old were great, it just looked awkward.

    Considering that Shadow the Hedgehog was a kickass game (to me), I'd buy a sequel... as long as it was ported to GCN.
