    My next Holy Grail would be Sonic Cd's lost levels.
    Also Nice job on tweaks. I have a few Tweaks of my own that feel comfortable, couldn''t release them in the pack though since it wasn't X-treme E3 enough.
    Only one complaint, the camera scaling of the level is a bit much, sure we can see sonic better but the level depth changed too much,
    In a future update we may be able to control camera distance parameters without having to use the depth scale tweak.

    Also it may be a good idea to post your tweaks here. :P

    Works on my machine. (7 year old Mac Pro running OS X 10.10.3) Using WINE via CrossOver. Performance is fine too, runs full speed.

    I think WINE doesn't like the low resolution the game tries to run it. Just enable Virtual Desktop in WINE configuration to force it to run in a window, then it works fine.

    Holy crap, I'm late to this party! Astounding news here, all thanks to the amazing work of JollyRoger! = D I never thought the day would come when a build of the actual Sonic X-treme would make it into public hands in a playable state, let alone ported to modern systems by hand...!

    Don't have time to try it out right now as I've got to get ready for work, but I think I know what I'll be checking out when I get back...! = )

    Whatever you do, don't look at the IGN article's comments.

    For some reason everyone is calling it a fan game, no one seems to get that it's an actual port of the game itself.

    Holy Sheet. This is awesome, that first-3D attempts feeling :v: This is one of the Holy Grails that we never got, so a restoration of this would be amazing.

    Well, runs flawlessly on my Core i5 3570k and my GTX760, not that I wasn't expecting it to, but every bit of info helps I guess.

    omg, you're still here! How's it going? I'm not dead! Although, I've not been known as 'Johnny' for a long time now. I uh. Kinda switched gender. Go figure. I go by Jay now!

    Also, me and Ultima have been talking about working on TG again, so my profile is still valid! :P

    Um, 'bout 4 years? I honestly have no idea. I just spotted this thread on reddit :P

    Edit:
    May have to vote up ScrapRabbit's post since mine is in response to his.

    *I should have mentioned that it's a 2010 Macbook Pro with 10.6.8. I also use wine bottler.
    I enabled virtual desktop in configuration and it didn't disable full screen. That is strange.

    Virtual Desktop is supposed to make everything run inside of a Window, no matter what.

    Recent versions of WINE on OS X have Codeweaver's "Mac Driver" which doesn't actually support Virtual Desktop mode. If Wine Bottler has that, turn it off. You need to be using X Windows (XQuartz) for Virtual Desktop mode to work.

    It works! (mostly)

    It's interesting to explore the world/playground, and the world rotation would allow for some tricky puzzles and mazes, but the problem is permitting the player to rotate around everything. The angles aren't fixed either. Andrew is definitely building a much improved game.

    I am looking forward to more level releases with the fisheye lens.
