    Okay, I've been working on this again today.

    SRAM now works, so it will save your lives, emeralds, zone completion, debug mode and other stuff. I tried to make it save your score, which it seems to do weirdly, because it randomly decided to give me about fifty million points and knock it back down to 999999 when I actually scored something. After I deleted the sram file, it now starts with zero points, but won't save it.

    The new spindash sound is in, but it can tend to mess up the music, especially the 2nd boss music.

    Monitor contents mappings are fixed and looking awesome.

    I've been working a bit on some new art for Spring Yard Zone's inside areas.

    Spring Yard level transitions are all fixed, bar the boss.

    The giant ring disappears by itself if the results screen appears before you collect it.

    The end level signpost stays on the screen. It also stays there even if you go off the screen and come back (I've added code to load the monitor tiles over the signpost tiles and vice versa as the camera moves horizontally), but it appears in the wrong place or not at all in the next act after special stage. If you die, it disappears, but as soon as you move left, it reappears again, and I'll fix that ASAP.

    In Marble Zone you now start below the ground for some reason, so you die immediately. I'll definately fix that for beta 3.

    However, there's now a very weird bug. Sometimes, completely intermittently, the PLC loading of the animals will stop half way through, and the title card letters are left behind. This only happens after an act transition, and I have no idea what causes it - it seems completely random.

    Sounds good. Do you have the Sonic 3 sprites in? It's so wierd seeing the game just switch from time to time.

    Yeah, this is pretty crazy. I think it may have something to do with the weird PLC bug. It happens if you leave the demo running - when it exits the special stage, that mess appears.

    Also, if any demo exits, or if you exit from the overworld with Start + A, the title screen foreground scrolls downwards until it eventually stops in the correct place after wrapping around one or more times. This doesn't happen if you just load the title screen from power on. I must have fucked up something big time when I made my level transition code, because that's when it started happening.

    Get rid of the problem by making a new title screen I suppose.

    Remove the Special Stage from the demo loop to fix the scrabled graphic problem. :P

    Sounds like too much effort (1st) / a lame way (2nd) to fix a bug that wasn't in the original :P

    I'll just have a look over the code some more, I guess. By the way, I've been thinking up new titles like:

    Sonic the Hedgehog: Chaos
    Sonic the Hedgehog: Phi Edition (cause phi is such an awesome letter and all)
    Sonic the Hedgehog: Sugoi Edition (sugoi = great/awesome/super/whatever in Japanese)
    Sonic the Hedgehog: Vista Edition (cause I'm now using Vista to work on it)
    Sonic the Hedgehog 1.7 (7 = 3 + 4, 3 being Sonic 3 and 4 being S&K)

    Any good?

    Hahaha, that's Project Chaos' old name.

    How about... Sonic the Hedgehog: Digital Dimension? Sounds pretty neat to me.

    Short, sweet, to the point, as this is a hack that's basically Sonic 1, but impoved, right?

    I couldn't know that. I was just borrowing ideas from Matrix. I was about to suggest also Sonic Reloaded.


    Like, Sonic 1 Plus. Ohwait :)

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Sonic and the Secret Extended Edition

    It shows that the game is an extended edition, and pokes fun at what may be the worst-named Sonic game, all at the same time.

    Well, I knew that Sonic Chaos was an official name, but not Sonic the Hedgehog: Chaos. After all, Sonic the Hedgehog Advance for example isn't actually an official name AFAIK.

    Maybe I've just been playing ShtH too much, but that would imply some kind of important part where you go into a computer, which is not in this hack. Nice idea though, maybe someone else should try it for a hack :)

    I have Sonic 1.7 for that one.

    Revolution/Reloaded sounds quite nice too

    Ahahahaha. I might use that just for the fun of it :P

    fix'd :D

    EDIT: I had another idea. The Awesome Version of Sonic the Hedgehog
