    That was my same suggestion. In case you know, Cinossu is already planning to add some unlockables, the spindash being one of them. I so hope that there will be both of them... even if to get the Sonic 2 style you have to get 8492 emeralds and beat Robotnik by walking backwards.

    Memories of "Blue Spheres" the most addictively pointless "game" in Sonic history.
     
  3. I strongly disagree with this. I prefer the Sonic CD style spindash over the Sonic 2 style spindash. I feel the Sonic 2 spindash kind of cheapened the entire experience of playing Sonic games. Sonic CD's was a nice compromise.

    With Sonic 1, a big part of the original experience was the first few times you casually walked up to the loops and tried to walk around them and got thrown back down. It was as if the game was saying "yeah, this ain't friggin' Mario Brothers anymore, pal. You gotta' move!"

    It seems like with Sonic 2, you just kind of spindash your way through everything and don't really get as much of an appreciation for the awesome physics in the Sonic games.

    Anyway, yeah, I totally agree with the Sonic CD spindash for this, Cinos. (I feel weird calling you that :<) This hack is awesome in general and I can't wait to see where you take it from here. Keep it up!

    Maybe some ppl prefer the S2 one because it's 'trigger happy'?

    Would it not be possible to add both, as different upgrades? But I agree that you can get moving more quickly with the S2 spindash.

    .. Okay. Time to end the whole Sonic 2/CD spindash thing once and for all.

    The Sonic CD spindash is the only spindash that is going to be in this rom hack. The Sonic 2 one is nice, yes, but it is the usual one to be ported, and it is, as has been said before, 'trigger happy', as in you can just tap it and insta-shoot off at speed. I don't want that. There needs to be SOME serious charge-up time otherwise it'll make some stuff I have planned useless and/or far too easy.

    The Sonic CD spindash will be unlockable. The Sonic 2 spindash will not be included at all. End of story.

    I'm sorry if I seem irritable on the subject, but it's something that has been asked since day one and it's beginning to piss me off a little.

    That actually wasn't what I was going for, as that's final HTZ. I meant it from the player's perspective - 0 rings and running straight into lava.

    Well, I was lazy and didn't feel like taking the time either to kill some lives off, or to hack the RAM. =P

    For the spindash, would it be possible to make it faster the longer you hold it down? Say the base spindash speed was 100, and after 1 second1 it would be 150 or something. But it's your choice, and I respect that, just throwing an opinion out. =P

    Sonic CD had 2 kinds of dash, the running dash was the faster one but you could get hurt more easily coz you were running and not spinning.
    I used the running dash and pressed down after launch if I really needed some speed.

    This is the best hack I've ever played.

    No, wait, it's the best Sonic game I've ever played since S3&K.

    The Sonic CD Spindash/Peel Out is a good choice. You're right that the Sonic 2 style spindash makes the game too easy.

    What is the "darkened" Chaos Emerald count for?

    My suggestions:

    1. You shouldn't display the lives on the HUD in the "Crackers" Zone.
    2. Add Tails and Knuckles to the game, and super forms.
    3. When you return to the overworld you should start whereever the giant ring you jumped into before is.
    4. Give an extra life on 50,000 points.
