  1. By the looks of it, there are platforms in the BG. Does this involve any kind of plane switching? 'Cos I had the very same Idea for my game. Oh well, If it is, I won't use it in my game, seeing as I've got two other Uber ideas aswell.

    Got to say, while everything looks amazing, that title card for the level just owns all. Like a better version of the Sonic CD one.

    Hehe, you should see it in motion, it's sooo much better.

    And GameNerd Advance, no the bg isn't for plane switching, it's more to set up for act 2 because in act 2 the death egg has crashed into the island and it's crumbling apart, so you play through the level as the sky and bits of the island fly past you and the ground collapses around, kinda like marble garden meets flying battery or something wierd like that.

    Actually, that's a pretty ingenious idea... They used that in Wario Land: Virtual Boy and it worked AMAZINGLY well.
     
  5. Yeah, I will be using that now. The other two Ideas stay secret for a while, though.

    Zonic, you've done a grand job. How long have you been doing this, just out of curiosity?

    It's hard to tell really, cos I don't work on it all the time, mostly in short bursts every now and again. And I forgot to say I'm working with a guy called Nitemare from SFGHQ, he joined me when he lost his own project due to computer issues.

    He has taken my old Sonic engine and done it more efficiently and such as he knows more about the coding kinda stuff. I tend to focus more on the design and concepts for the game, desinging the graphics and sprites and bosses etc, I'll mock up their movement using my decent skills in MMF and Nitemare will know a better way to do it. We both share the design of the layout of each of the levels, we've decided to do 1 act of each zone each so they are not too similar. it's good cos we're both pretty much all rounders for the skills we need to make a fangame, but where my skills come a little short, he exceeds and vice versa, so we're the perfect team really.

    Oh, and we're both dead set on making this a bloody good fangame, worthy of the Old School sonic games, even if we do both work in small short bursts. It'll get there, and t'will be well worth it.

    What describes the screenshots (and hopefully the game itself) is too awsome for words. Can't wait to play it.

    Damn nice looking piece of work you got there Zonic. I just hope it doesn't become vaporware like Retro Sonic.

    What exactly do you mean by platforms in the BG? By all means, wouldn't that make the BG the new FG? =P

    I'm just unclear on the concept, that's all. Willing to provide an example?

    What did ever happen to Retro Sonic? I left the community when it was still in it's early stages.

    Jesus christ man! That's amazing! And I usually don't even post in topics with edited games in them!
     
  19. In a sense, yes. You would start playing In the Foreground, Find some sort of door/portal/whatever else, and continue playing on the platforms far off in the BG.

    And Witeoutking, If you want, you can have a shot at that idea.


    Edit: And please, include that CNC32.dll or whatever with the game. I can't be bothered to go hunting.
