    And this is why I want a database of songs for Generations, because I know at least one or two of my songs aren't perfectly looped.

    I hate to be a question monger again, but I couldn't find the Shadow mod for the game. I saw some great footage on YouTube of Sonic basically being replaced with Shadow. The user is Megamaniscrazy, but from what I could find he didn't provide any download links for his creation. Is it still a work in progress?

    If I'm using the word "mod" wrong, go ahead and tell me. From what I know all it means is modification, but I assume that this "mod" is actually a remodel and or retexture of Sonic? I'd love to know more about how all this works, so if any of you here could help out a newb, I'd appreciate it.

    For reference, I was told that a retexture, or texture itself, is simply the "color" of the model, and then the model itself was the geometry, such as in Sonic's case, his spikes and such. Is this correct?


    On an unrelated and less important note, is it possible to use the homing attack as classic sonic? I thought I saw something somewhere, but I can't remember for the life of me where I found it.

    Yes, you are using the word "mod" the correct way. As for Classic Sonic's homing attack, you get that from getting all the Red Star Rings in the game.

    That seems like a lot of work... Is there a hack/mod for it?

    I never really looked into that. You could always download a save I guess.

    This is incorrect. Classic homing attack is unlocked by getting all the Red Star Rings in Planet Wisp.

    As for the Shadow mod, that's been released for quite some time. If you search on YouTube and look for mod videos that say "release" in the video title you will usually find a download link in the description. But to save you a bit of work, here's the Shadow mod: http://www.mediafire.com/?nbv4ur87tfywqod

    Actually, you just need all the Red Star Rings from Planet Wisp Act 1. The Homing Attack will then be unlocked as an equipable skill for Classic Sonic.

    EDIT: Gah, ninja'd. Ah well, while we're talking about it, I should mention that there is a way to make it so Classic Sonic has an Air Dash as a permanent part of his moveset...but really, you should just go with unlocking it the legitimate way since modding it in will only give you the Air Dash.

    That's true, I could grab myself a save, I completely forgot that was an option, I haven't downloaded a save since my GameCube days.

    Also thanks for the link for Shadow, I'm already loving how progressive these forums are.

    I was wondering how Cash Cash had done those amazing filters on City Escape Classic and Speed Highway. Then I heard KgZ's Storm Station Act 2 for AtS which has similar ones and asked him. So I replicated that into what started as Classic remix. I think it's pretty obvious when you hear it. It's still pretty classic but it's not full on... retro to say the least.

    Sad how we might never be able to have custom bosses. Would be pretty cool to see some nice things like Big Arms and such. I mean, yeah, it's prolly hard to program it even if we could but yeah. :(


    damn I just realised I forgot to do EQing of the frequencies on that remix but oh well, I'll go do it now.

    Life.
    Not sure how that's dubstep. Nonspecific techno/dance, sure.
    I don't understand the point of the wind/whistle instrument. Everything else seems like standard techno noises, which all sounds fine, but that comes in and just clashes with the techno-style bass and just makes me think you're using random instrument patches with no real idea of what genre you're going for. Just comes off as... amateurish, I suppose. (Youtube and Newgrounds 'remixes' that use the same antics have made me feel like a grumpy old man when I hear stuff like this now, even though I hardly have any real experience to draw on either, so I hope this doesn't sound too harsh.)

    So I heard Paraxade's Kingdom Valley mod is almost done. *cough*
    By that I mean Paraxade specifically requested that I make this.
    I think I'm getting better with Kontakt. I think.

    I like how driven this sounds compared to relaxing, but the drums sorta sound too clumsy at the end. Liking it though!

    It's actually dubstep, sorta. Well it fulfills like 80% of the stuff. It has the actual wubs and similar sweeps. Not full-on cos I find full on annoying but oh well. Sorry I couldn't meet you expectations. :( The wind instrument is to sorta facilitate the feeling of the breakdown and such? I could've used synth but I find this more like tense?

    Oh also Jax, it started a classic remix, then it became a medley, with Crisis City, Suitable Opponent and Sonic 3 Boss. But I found it ehhh and this was the best part so I only let this out. If I extend this, it's just gonna loop so naaaah. It's not downloadable cos I might use it for stuff so yeah.

    A bit too powering over the melody and such? You could use ghost notes or beats with a bit less velocity there. Only the turn around though. After 0:12 and such I mean.

    I suck at White Spaces myself.

    So don't take me too seriously but just saying what I feel. :)
