Sonic CD Restored 30th Anniversary Edition

  1. I feel like an ass for my previous post. People aren't 2D cut outs and it's easy to forget that on the internet. Whatever your original intentions behind the music was I'm sure it wasn't done in malice. I was out of line.

    Yeah, it's too easy to forget that there are real people on the other side of the screen and that there is much more nuance than meets the eye at a glance. I apologize again for how utterly rude I was in my initial post in this thread. Thank you for addressing this feedback/criticism in a civil and rational manner despite how negative in tone I and others have been. I look forward to the next update! :)

    The new version is out as of Memorial Day. Next version will be after Origins Plus since that will likely give me all sorts of things to think about and reflect on.

    Added Knuckles in the last version for people who can pass a DLC check by doing a manual build of Restored.exe
    Knuckles has his jump height, physics, cancels and all relevant properties restored from S3&K.

    Randomizer was added for SHC, Crowd Control has been running wild for streamers and Discord buddies.
    And I'm really proud of the new round of restorations, such as the MM3 Lightning Bugs palette fade. The background actually goes dark again.
    Spintop and Spin Platform physics were restored, and the CC3 boss should finally be as easy to beat as it was in CD93. (it was never easy there either) because not only do the flippers have their power restored (thanks to Devon/Ralakimus) but also the Flipper Hitboxes were corrected, so instead of having to thread a needle with only 41 pixels of width, you now have to thread a needle with 63 pixels of width!

    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    Gorgeous, I'm really excited to get this going on my Steam Deck this weekend
     
  6. Just curious, if I were to buy Origins Plus and decompile it so that I can use it and add Knuckles to the game on this, would my existing save files still work, or would I need to start over again?

    Your Origins save file wouldn't work.
    Also, you're really only required to own some form of Sonic CD (via copying over your Data.RSDK file).
    Building the Decomp offline to pass the DLC checks is really just using an honor system since it has no way to actually check if you bought the Origins DLC.
