    I downloaded the demo. I really like it. Wish it had the Special Stages. In the past, I was able to get all 7 Chaos Emeralds before leaving Emerald Hill...
     
  4. That demo is from the old S2HD that died years ago. There is no current demo at the moment from the new team.

    I can see so much potential for this fangame! I have been hyped up ever since they announced that they are back up and running! I am supporting them all the way and I hope that some day, the full version will come to exist! If only there was some form of a way to help in the making of Sonic 2 HD, because if I could, for sure I would! This is the best Sonic fangame ever!!!
     
  6. Little did you know, Sonic 1 + 2 HD are the 25th anniversary release.

    You mean the old malware-addled DRM-shackled technical monstrosity that doesn't boot on most PCs? :v:

    Darn it, I was so massively disappointed by that post; I thought there was a new preview demo or something released and went back a couple pages trying to find it.

    Do you even realize how much work it takes to draw a single zone?
    S3&K was done in 2 years with a full team of full time artists, and that was pixel art with a 20 colour limit for a zone.
    With 16 times the pixel count and 8 times more shades of blue available I wouldn't be surprised if it takes 10 times more work to make it HD.

    I would be floored if someone/team manages to output an HD zone every 2 months with uncompromised quality.

    That is very true, it takes a very long time for the Sonic 2 HD team to create the HD versions of sprites whether it be enemies, characters, objects, levels, backgrounds, etc. That being said if a lot more professional people knew about this project and joined it it might go slightly faster but coordination and an agreement on similar are style would have to be decided upon so that things don't look very different. The best that we can do as fans are 2 things, 1 tell others about this project and if they tell others it might reach a professional somewhere, or 2 we as fans take the time to learn art, coding, etc. and learn to be professionals in order to help the Sonic 2 HD Team.

    As for other HD remakes of games, there would either have to be a separate team to do that with similar if not identical people with the same skills, or we would have to wait for Sonic 2 HD to be released and finished and see if the team wants to do another game like Sonic 1, Sonic CD, Sonic 3 & Knuckles (And I guess Blue Sphere). [etc.] At first this may seem hard but simple, but try it for yourself, try to create 1 HD sprite on your own and you will find that it is really hard, and the Sonic 2 HD team needs to keep a consistent style and make sure that it looks like a HD version of the original and not a different change to the original graphics.

    Does anyone have insight into this project? I don't think anything new has happened in roughly 6 or 7 months?

    While the facebook page is getting rare updates, it might just mean that they don't want to spoil the game. Its not like they are releasing everything they have done by this time, right?
    And yes a month ago they asked for a blogger which would suggest they have content.

    I wonder why did they replace Tee's stuff. It's such a shame he's one of the finest musicians in Sonic community
     
  16. I'm hoping the lack of updates is due to 1 of 2 things:

    1. They are getting ready to give us the next demo, with a few playable levels.

    2. SEGA has picked up the project.

    I doubt very, VERY much it's #2. #1 is far more likely.
     
  18. I know ;) but it would be great wouldn't it :specialed:
