    What? I never said it wasn't, I specifically said the stuff in the video is already released. In hindsight I should've listed the Unleashed model mod specifically, but I'll add that soon.

    Thank you for keeping people updated over at SSMB by the way, Lanzer. This is kind of the only board I hang out on anymore.

    The balance of Unleashed faithfulness and Generations design concepts you've reached is spot on!

    Oh boy, I'm back again to thrust my issues onto those who know what they're doing since I clearly don't.

    I'm trying to make a MissionOpenBlock activate after pressing three switches. I've already ported MissionOpenBlock to my stage, and I have three switches that I've linked to the MissionOpenBlock through the TargetListON parameter, but I don't know how to make the switches collective, nor do I know how to make the MissionOpenBlock deactivated by default and turn on. I've been using this to figure out most objects so far, but it doesn't have detailed info on switches and there's nothing on MissionOpenBlock presumably because it's not a common object. So... Can anybody do this for me lend me a hand?

    You don't want to use the Switch object's TargetListON feature. Instead, create an EventSetter object and use its TargetList to add all of the Switch objects, then set the events it triggers up on the various lists. I'm pretty sure deactivating the MissionOpenBlock would either be an event type 6 or 7 (I've never used MissionOpenBlock).

    EDIT: If that doesn't work let me know, there are a few other values on the EventSetter object that might be getting in the way. Either that or use #cpz201.ar.00 for reference - I think that's the right one, but if not, there's a cte mission somewhere which uses the same setup.

    Thanks! I tinkered with it a bit and it's working perfectly now! Just an FYI, it's event type 7, and the switches go in TriggerList, not TargetList. The only problem is that SonicGLvl doesn't seem to like having more than one object in the TriggerList and it always defaults it back to one, so I have to manually edit the objects with Generations Archive Editor every time I run the game to insert the other two switch IDs in again... I suppose I can just make a temporary workaround to that part of the level and fix the switches only when doing a full run, but eh.

    Act 1-2 had to be re-recorded for fixing stuff purposes.

    Good to see the project coming along so well. Any chance we'll see Unleashed Xbox360 shaders in Generations in the future? I remember seeing Dario's video on that and it looked amazing. Would love to have it as a Generations mod.

    I spoke with Dario about the shaders and he told me he's having trouble cracking a few things. I know he's pretty busy with his job right now too, so he doesn't have a lot of opportunities to look at it. We'll have to see.

    With Apotos done, I'll be moving on to do some cleanup and set up a beta testing system for the people I have in mind. Mazuri content will be coming soon.

    Oh so I see now. You plan to do all the additional daytime stages not in the original Unleashed project (as opposed to my original thought which was that you were going to only do the hard mode stages). I salute you sir, god speed.

    I could pick apart a lot of things that stick out to me as needing work, but the biggest is probably the camera. There's no sense of consistent camera perspective for any standard player to get a grip on the controls. If everything is at a weird "cinematic" angle, especially if that angle is always changing, it's going to basically be disorienting and unplayable.

    Is that main menu from the demo? I didn't know it was in the game files.

    And while the mod itself is good I agree with S0LV0, the camera is pretty weird. While I'm not bad at Generations, I hit walls and missed rings several times while playing the mod. But other than that, I can't see anything wrong with it.
