    Most of us are just using Dolphin to emulate it, so yeah, that's what we (or at least I) was getting at.

    Regarding the level layouts edit, Dimps had the brilliant idea of using 3D blocks to build each chunks of the level, so the structure is similar to the Genesis games, except the chunks are 3D models. If I knew the 3D format, I could edit my level editor to be more similar to SonED2, for example.

    Unfortunatelly, I'm not with enough time to research such format. Polygon Jim knows it though, but he's not telling. It doesn't help the fact that he cannot program, so we are stuck in this endless loop.

    I can make out how the level looks like based on the collision data, though. So editting the layouts with the visual aid of the collision data is possible.

    Also, extra life! 1000th post.
     
  3. Can somebody tell me how the music works in this game?
    It seems to play pretty slow in the first video of this topic, and plays faster sometimes. Is the music played with MIDI instruments or something like that?

    The Wii version, yes. It's sequenced. I belive the iDevices versions too. The 360/PS3 versions are proper musics, and are in the ADX format.
     
  5. So, if the music is sequenced, is it possible to rip the music in MIDI format?

    According to what I've seen, I believe that the iOS version is also the proper music rather than sequenced. Every song sounds identical to the HD renditions.

  8. Incorrect. It's ADX.

    Music files from iPhone version ripped to WAV: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=I6RTY39Z


    Not to try to steal any thunder here, but I've already done that too. Very quick edit.
     
  9. With the help of Polygon Jim's Sonic Unleashed texture, I've worked on it to get to this:

    I'm aware the ear color isn't quite right. I'll fix that later.

    Also note: No green eyes.

    Trunks, your edited Sonic has so much more personality and charm than the official one. Probably because I can see that tiny smirk in yours. Awesome.

    Also the smirk is actually taken from Sonic 06.

    I might as well show my texture as well. I'm not going to show too much of my hack until I get at least a full stage done because I have a tendency to stop working on projects.

    Haha, I didn't expect to see hacking for Sonic 4 so soon. Looks like my modded Wii is finally becoming useful again. And Trunks, Sonic look's so much better with that texture, I can't wait for the release. :D

    If at all possible can you make it so that it's not possible for Super Sonic to pick up a shield? I know it doesn't matter much but it looks strange

    Is it possible to just make the shield blue and smaller again? It's size and bright green is certainly jarring, and that's without being on Super Sonic.

    Blue is reserved for magnet shield now though. Fire shield is red and water shield haha, water.
