    He's talking about speed boosters in Megamix, not any other game.

    It seems that Team Megamix are going with the "multidirectional speed boosters in every zone" way. Although some people would prefer that Megamix has a few zones without them, it seems that speed is a focus in this hack and that the usage of boosters will help. Placing them everywhere like a Dimps game is annoying, but Megamix doesn't have bad physics, they're just going for a Sonic CD-approach. It's probably possible that you can complete the game without using them at all, unlike games such as Sonic 4 which seriously depend on them. You don't need to have to use the Homing Attack in Megamix either, because there are routes that can be character-specific. If one character can't use it because of a lack of move, another one can.

    So huh maybe this question has already been answered but you know how the previous build had 4 acts for each zone, the 4th being only accessible through cheat mode.
    How are we going to access each 4th act in the final build?

    The fourth act of every level is unlocked once you finish the game with Sonic (the only character that doesn't make the game reset to the boot up screen after defeating the final boss.) But Misty Maze Act 4 is incomplete and is impossible to beat without debug.

    Huh? I don't remember it resetting with the other characters...

    Anyway yeah, complete game, select EXTRA MODE. Act 4 of each level becomes available.

    Haha, this is actually pretty neat! I dunno if we're gonna use it or not, but I'm really liking the sound of it. Eager to see it completed! :)

    That's well neat for an arranged version of SNZ.

    It could be worth, if Thundertimi is happy to share the midi. Is for you to do the instrumentation again so both tunes compliment each other perfectly.

    Not quite. I didn't use a single booster while redesigning Misty Maze, and I don't see any reason to have them in Metallic Base either, though that level hasn't been touched layout-wise since it's shit incarnation in 4.0, so depending on who remodels it, that statement may be falsified. Speed isn't a game-wide focus, but rather a design choice in some levels, as in the classic games; which is where Dimps' levels fall flat on their faces. Every level is the same, with the exception being Sonic 4, where the four levels all suck in their own special ways. :eng101:
     
  12. Does this happen to everyone? The game saved just fine when it suddenly froze on the credits and now no matter how far I am, it loads at Sunny Shores with 0 lives. Not 1, 0. If I die, I get infinite lives :) but still! Will this be fixed?

    There seems to be something off with this track I'm afraid. I think it's something to do with the lead voice, but I might be wrong here.

    I like the rearrangement, but yes, something's not so good about the lead you chose...I can't put my finger on it.
     
  17. Is not the best song I've heard, but for some reason I cannot stop listening to it : D really good job !!
