    The rings in the trees are rather interesting.

    Unfortunately, I don't have much to judge based on a single screenshot. Could you make a video of it in action or something?

    Really liking the colour scheme of that zone, sets a mood. More pictures! I think the sonic sprites should be changed, perhaps sonic 3 sprites?
    As for 3rd character..... Knuckles would fit well on the basis of s2k but maybe something different that you might not find in other hacks

    Bean. He's awesome and that.

    But holy hell, SMS music? It has to be my favourite from all the Sonic games (except for Stranger in Moscow from Sonic 3).

    This tile should be a border tile. I really like the palette though.

    Possibly stolen "Overdrive" from my hack name? =P

    I don't really care, at least part of it distinguishes from my hack name.

    Also, what tweaker said. Not much to judge based on a single screenshot.

    He's had this hack name for upwards of a year. Besides that, the word "Overdrive" isn't very original in a hack title.

    I looked at that pallete, and I'm listening to Chocolate Rain. If you put that as the song, I will die of love.

    I don't know how to listen to .vgm files, so can you tell a program? And if that really is Chocolate Rain, I will scream.

    As many of you want a video, here's a video of It In action.

    Tell me how you think.

    Notes:

    I forgot to add the jumping sound, sorry about that.
    The percentage of the layout is currently between 45% and 50% complete.

    Hm... It sounds like you've been using MPT to convert your MIDIs to XM, and as a result it's really jumpy.

    Did you talk to Puto like I told you and get MID2XM? That will make your conversions more or less flawless in terms of timing. Aside from that, you just need to fix up the voices, since they're pretty ear-piercing at the moment.

    The layout is interesting, but it's hard to me to judge it entirely since it's incomplete. Regardless, this isn't too bad so far, so nice work!
