    I could've sworn that I saw videos that had levels without bosses. I'd imagine there is a flag that determines if a boss is present. IIRC Sonic 2 IOS had that and cleared the flag for multiplayer.

    There doesn't have to be a boss for the level to end, no. You can just remove the boss and place a stationary signpost/capsule and the level should end like normal.

    If someone actually made Sonic Mania Heroes (Sonic Classic Heroes) + All the Sonic 1, 2, 3, CD Level Pack in one mod, I would pay them $60.00 for it. Holy crap, seeing some of the other levels from sonic in this is really nice. I honestly thought when I first saw Sonic Mania that it literally be a coliseum of previous sonic levels from all the games that you can just go through revamped, but then I got disappointed that it was only a few. Glad to see the modding scene isn't being handicapped by greedy sega companies lol

    Mania modding is fun.

    (Also, Mario's ground-pound in CPZ's chemicals isn't quite a good idea)

    Working on my art!
    If someone made what you described I'd pay $100 for that.

    Well, I tried right now to have a Sonic Labyrinth-esque key gimmick with a "door"

    I've just finished my Quartz Quadrant Bad Future update to my mod. It already has the Present for act 2 and the Good Future for the other act 3. Past coming soon!

    Does anyone have any idea what's happened here? I shrunk the Sonic Mania logo down so it would fit in the Egg TV screen sprite, but when I imported it directly into the original some of the colours were slightly off so I started a fresh .gif from scratch hoping for more colour accuracy and I got what's safe to say is the exact opposite.

    Also the background flashes between blue, green and pink to make it even more awful.

    My eyes are dying:

    Update: I'm downloading a palette editor which I am hoping will fix it. I still find this image amusing though.

    Update:

    Can someone please point me in the direction of a guide on outputting my gifs in the correct format? Can I use any colours I want, or does the game engine limit what options I have?

    Y'all are getting crazy with these mods. I can't wait to see what kinds of shenanigans happen when custom gimmicks become easier to import.

    Based off of this Sonic Manis Plus trailer:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ATRBrixJNY

    Can someone provide "most, not all " of the sprite sheets of Mighty & Ray shown in it? Oh, & I'm not sure the 4-player competition screen can be screenshot...

    P.S.
    I'm currently trying to reach out to CylentNite of DeviantArt to help provide the "whole & playable" sprite sheets for Nack The Weasel, Bean The Duck, & Bark The Polar Bear shown by the Heavy Magician...

    Why not just wait for Sonic Mania Plus to be released before asking for sprites of Mighty and Ray?

    Please don't bother Cylent, he's an old friend of mine and he doesn't really sprite anymore. Anything he does do is for personal projects.

    No need for disrespect! I just came across Cylent's work on Google Image Search & I'm new to contributing here...

    Waiting until July 17th and ripping the official and full gifs from the rsdk, along with the included palettes, would be much more beneficial than what is shown in the trailer (compression and all that messes them up).

    Hmmmm....

    Since CylentNite is no longer in the mix, I guess the focus will be on pixel drawing Team Hooligan, meaning Nack, Bean, & Bark...

    I wonder if Bean should be the Flyer of the team. He's a duck afterall...

    By observation, Nack is the leader & Bark is the muscle; obviously shown in the comics...

    Can anybody here think of a good pixel artist to draw additional stuff (holding still animation, walking, running, ducking, pushing, flying [Bean only], looking up, pipe/tunnel rolling, act finish poses, special stage art [s2 & s3], game completion poses, etc.) to the current Sonic Mania sprite sheets of Team Hooligan?

    Unless you're able to pay someone at least a few hundred dollars for the work then I wouldn't bother anyone if I were you.

    ^ To save time, I actually would...

    P.S.
    Currently studying old & new comics to study the characters Heavy & Bomb. Using sprites from Chaotix, I might be able to update them in having these two working together, similar to that of the character Cream & her Chao friend. What fascinated me is Heavy's ability to create an "endless supply of Bombs"

    Please do not bring the Mania Bean & Bark sprite resourcing to the Sonic the Fighters hacking thread. It is rude to ask for resources now in both threads. As people have said you will have to pay people to do your work. I am not interested in participating in your hack.
