    First of DRX = God. =P Secondly Anybody notice when loading LZ that it has the underwater effect. This proves that Sonic 2 was most likely built off Sonic 1 ver. 2.

    I find it really amusing that the HTZ vine carrier things don't fall at the end.

    Another Sonic 1 carry-over: I got the old double-spike-hit=death glitch when I went fell into that one new area in EHZ with the moving platform (There's a screenshot over at Sonic-cult of this place).

    Seeing new prototypes get released gives me hope that others will be found ;)

    Don't know if this stuff is still relevant in hacking anymore, but I'm mapping out stuff anyway

    God damn, should we be renaming this to DRX's Sonic 2 Beta-Beta? Amazing job, man, this is fucking intense.

    Nayr you indeed found the LEvel Select Text, it follows a similar format mix of S2's options and S1's LS, Great job, as for the HPZ Layout I haven't looked yet.
     
  11. Something I noticed: If you're running fast and do the "ricochet" off a wall underwater, Sonic bounces back really freaking far, about one screen. Also, if you surface while bouncing back, you'll still be going as slow as you would be underwater, but in the air.
     
  12. I'm back just to say WOW.

    Things never stop around here.. I'm amazed.

    I'm indifferent as to what we should call this build... Nick Arcade build comes up first in my mind, but other possible suggestions are:

    - Sonic 2 Alpha
    - drx's Sonic 2 Beta/Alpha

    And I suppose we could always call our "old" beta the Simon Wai beta, or just the Wai beta, for short... That's what I used on the newspost on the main site.

    This shows that not all screenshots with Sonic off-center are fake.

    Edit: I'm probably wrong with this idea becuase of what Gerbilsoft and Rika said on irc.
    [23:02] <GerbilSoft> all the screenshots with sonic off-center weren't after a spindash
    [23:02] <GerbilSoft> (the magazine scans, at least)
    [23:07] <rika> yeah, cause he was just walking.
    [23:08] <rika> off center while spinning or running with speed boost or sneakers is nothing out of the ordinary.

    I like alpha personally. Alpha is earlier than beta eh?

    Alpha is cool, but it implies unplayability altogether iirc. DRX's Sonic 2 Beta would certainly be distinct from Simon Wai's Sonic 2 Beta. Perhaps Sonic 2 Beta NA?

    That sounds good. Or something like "Nick Arcade's Sonic 2 Beta," if we followed the example of "Simon Wai's Sonic 2 Beta."
