    So I decided to write my own version of the S2HD engine instead of waiting for anything to come from here, and here's the result.

    <img src="http://gerbilsoft.soniccenter.org/Sonic/S2HD/s2hd-ar-title-screenshot.png" border="0" class="linked-image" />

    Emerald Hill Zone and Hill Top Zone are currently fully playable, including bosses.

    I've only compiled a Windows version right now, since I had some issues with my Ubuntu 8.04 VM. Source code will be posted this weekend.

    Download: <a href="http://gerbilsoft.soniccenter.org/Sonic/S2HD/s2hd_alpha_release_0.4.zip" target="_blank">s2hd_alpha_release_0.4.zip</a> (45.94 MB)

    EDIT: I fixed a last-minute audio bug. Redownload the program if you already downloaded it.
    EDIT: And another last-minute bug fixed; this time, it's a crash bug. v0.4 uploaded.

    I'm not downloading this if Rick Astley isn't playable, with Eduard Khil as his sidekick.

    It occurred to me that this was an April Fools joke just as my mouse hovered over the icon. I started it up anyway for shits and giggles.

    As a general rule I believe nothing on this day. Come back on the 4th and promote this. Otherwise...

    I'm serious! It isn't - we practically had to beat Gerbil to pieces to ENSURE this, but it isn't =P

    Echoing that it <I><b>isn't</I></b> a Rick roll, having downloaded the executable and playing it myself. Emerald Hill Zone certainly is awesome looking! I am concerned about the Title Card, however.

    April Fools to you too.

    What is the probability of REALLY bringing out an Alpha Release on the 1st April?


    I want video proof of this; <u><b>IF</b></u> it is already released, then you might as well give us a HD video of someone playing through this supposed "Alpha Release" to prove it.

    Or this can only be an April Fools Joke (duh!).

    That's it.

    It's not a rickroll guys, jesus christ. You bunch of fucking skeptics. Gerbil is an honest, down to earth man, and would not do that to us. Emerald Hill DOES look ace, btw.
