So, I mostly never post here aside from when there's a new prototype release -- or when I released the RAM editor for emulator. However, you guys enjoy showing off your hacks a lot, so I figured I'd show mine off. I've decided to hack Sonic 2, as it was my first experience with Sonic the Hedgehog and just seemed proper. I just beat Sonic CD for the first time the other day, after neglecting to play it since my copy as a child stopped working. It inspired me to make a fan game/ROM hack, I decided on the latter because it'd be much easier given the tools that this community has put out. Anyway, I'm just gunna post a couple screen shots and probably bump this thread whenever -- like the other threads on this board. As of right now, I'm merely going through the levels and adjusting the palettes to schemes I come up with (pretty much on the fly). As you'd imagine, I plan on creating all new levels for each scheme and, hopefully, do some more interesting things. My only plan for game-play right now is very fast and bouncing all over the place... similar to the 3D Sonic games (which, generally, I am not a fan of at all). I'm by no means a ROM hacker, this will be my first ROM hack. My only emulation related claims to fame are two emulators written in Visual Basic (most of which I did not code). So, we'll see how this goes. On with the screen shots (in the order which I think the zones will appear in the game so far)... This is Crimson Cave Zone at the moment, based off Mystic Cave Zone obviously. I see this zone being very vertical and treacherous in my brainstorming. This is Frosty Palms Zone. This is probably how it will appear in the final release as I am very happy with the way it turned out. It's based off Emerald Hill Zone, of course, and will probably be very hilly and explorable. This is Volcano Rim Zone, based off Hill Top Zone, which will probably be one of the later zones in the game. The white plants and trees are supposed to be covered in ash, since it's an active volcano. I think this zone should be as difficult as possible and have tons of lava because it looks so menacing. That's all for now, I'd love to hear some criticism from you guys.
