UPDATE Version 1.02 is now available here: http://mrjester.hapisan.com/07_DAGarden/S3DAGE_102.bin You can see the change log here: http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?showtopic=34864&view=findpost&p=842106&#entry842106 History Sonic 3: D.A. Garden Edition is a project that has been in development since July 2009. My initial idea was to create a ROM hack of Sonic 3 & Knuckles that would provide the player with brand new level layouts from start to finish. In total, 13 Zones of new layouts providing 23 unique acts of game play for 3 characters, and 14 new special stages for you to conquer. The project has finally reached a point where I feel an initial release can happen, so here we are. I hope you all enjoy it; it has been one hell of an experience but I feel that it was worth it.

Garden Edition'. It is difficult to keep track of this stuff, but please do note that your contribution to the project is gratefully received. Jayextee I know you are not around the scene as much as you used to be, but I have kept my promise to you, and completed the first, full hack of Sonic 3 and Knuckles. I know it is not much, but thank you for providing me with both purpose and the motivation to continue with this endeavour. There have been countless times during development where I have felt the need to end the project prematurely and just leave, but I stuck with it until the end. For this reason, you have my sincerest gratitude. Notes I have tested my hack on both the Kega Fusion and Regen emulators and can confirm it works on these correctly. I cannot guarantee it will work correctly on other emulators, or on real hardware. If you find any bugs or issues, please let me know and I will do my best to fix them. However, I will not take requests of any kind for additional features and/or content.
