    I know, I was so looking forward to playing Sonic Gemini. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon, since the link clearly isn't working.

    I've also been getting a broken link for Mecha Madness :(

    Note to Stealth:
    Something's wrong with how you packaged to the Mac version of Mettrix.
    I had to "chmod +x ./e02.app/contents/macos/e02mac" otherwise the App wouldn't run. I've never had this problem before with programs packaged in zip files, so I'm not sure what caused it. Maybe because Contents and MacOS are usually not all lowercase, so the unzipping program didn't notice? (Edit: Oh, it was a RAR.... Hmmm)

    Wait, what? Shit. Hang on. Let me see what's up.

    Okay, I have no idea what's going on. This is apparently what Mediafire does. Try again, or try copy/pasting the list. I'm going to upload it to a few other randomass hosting sites and post links on the booth. If anyone feels like mirroring, go right ahead.

    Right now I've got a Rapidshare link going too. I've never actually had the means to use hosting sites before. I mean...I'm an artist, I can just use Photobucket, but yeah, I'm...learning. As of this moment I hate the Internet and how fucking anal it is about this stuff.

    EDIT: There's four or five download links now.

    I don't know where to ask this, so I will ask it here.

    the E02 engine was used to make Project Mettrix, and I can run Project Mettrix on my ppc mac. Those are the facts that I know. Why exactly is it that I can't actually use the E02 engine/editor to make a Sonic game when this E02 example can be run on my machine? Am I wrong? I see a E02.zip, but that opens up an E02.gz, which I can not open. Can I use E02 but am not aware, or am I wrong? Would someone please help me out? How do you start?

    EDIT: I guess I had the engine after all, but I have no idea how to use it, even after reading the instructions. I am no programmer, and I don't have any knowledge how I am supposed to build a level from scratch. sigh

    EDIT 2: Actually, I accessed some form of an editor after pressing E during gameplay of Project Mettrix. I don't think I'm supposed to do it that way. Either way, my previous edit unfortunately stands. I WISH I could make a Sonic game, or even just a level (but I need help. All I have are level design ideas, drawings, concepts, etc. I can't use them!).

    I unskillfully edited a couple of tiles, then the application crashed. I have no idea what I am doing.

    Today we have two interviews going on in the SAGE Expo chat!

    At 2PM Eastern Time, we'll have Spencer Nilsen (Sonic CD USA music composer) taking questions, and at 9PM Eastern Time, Tom Payne (Sonic the Hedgehog 2 zone artist) will be also taking questions. We look forward to seeing you there!

    Last night for those who missed it, Mike Pollock (current voice of Dr. Eggman) stayed in the chat for 2 hours, answering anything anyone was curious about in his involvement with SEGA and the Sonic game series.

    It's a low poly model I made.

    It's a cute little model.

    Isn't Sonic Rebirth coming out today? That should be a good time. I'm glad I've got today off.

    I have been waiting for it all day. It looks like it may be quite fun.

    Same. I've been wondering where it's been all day... I got on chat though and one or two people (I believe they were StreakThunderstorm & BlazeHedgehog) both saying that he'll have it up later today.

    Either way, he better hurry up. That's one fine looking game he's got. :v:

    Rebirth's been delayed to tomorrow.

    I actually got a legitimate news tip this time.

    Hooray!

    Sonic Rebirth looks awesome, I can't wait to play it.

    I notice that its site says "COMMING 30-7-09". Either it's an honest typo, or the world's greatest in-joke, because the Zone Select entry in Sonic CD that leads to the "Comin' Soon" message is labeled "COMMING".

    You'd be surprised at the number of people who can't spell "coming" so probably the former =P

    It's also apparent that English isn't his native language, since his game is hosted on a Brazilian site.

    When I try extracting the rar file, it says that the .exe file is broken.

    EDIT: Never mind, I redownloaded it and it seems to be working.

    It's also apparent that English isn't his first language due to the mostly unintelligible dialogue during one of his trailers.

    But why are we complaining about this?! Let's go enjoy his game!

    Just game over'd at Labyrinth, and here are my impressions so far:

    Looks great, sounds nice (for the most part, the 1up jingle is horrid and the stage clear arrangement is odd), the cutscenes have no real value to them (luckily they're skippable), and the physics, handling, and collision are just wonky, and don't lend themselves too well to level layouts that are largely similar to the original game. This makes many parts of the game more annoying than they should be, such as jumping into tight spaces. Rolling is hardly useful for gaining speed anymore, as made obvious during my experience at Spring Yard. Bosses behave very awkwardly. Also, why are there so few platforms on the conveyor belts at Labyrinth?

    Eh.

    Well, this is odd...

    Selecting OGG mode for the music makes it attempt to load MIDI files when there aren't any in the /music/ogg/ folder when it should be loading OGG Vorbis files, so no music is played at all....

    That needs to be patched and fixed....

    This game is pretty bad.

    Sonic Rebirth...
    I've just downloaded it and so many problems have come up already.
    I can't get any BG music to play what so ever, apart from the menu theme (Yes, I have the OGG files in the music folder, in the right place. Even the midi's don't work). The control setup only works when in full screen and doesn't save at all, even though it makes an options settings save file. And it froze on me when I got to the end of GHZ Act1.
