    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: favourite songs are BBBB and Dam Dariam, because they suit the zone they are played on. And the act finish song, I've got attracted to that. :P

    Uh, call me an uneducated ASM programmer, but shoudln't that be as simple as (in pseucocode):
    Code (Text):
    1. if (panicMode == 1) {
    2.    panicModeDisplayText == "ON";
    3. }
    4. else {
    5.    panicModeDisplayText == "OFF";
    6. }

    Short answer: no.
     
  4. Actually, if you combine pseudocode and ASM, it's more like:
    Code (ASM):
    1.     lea    ($C00000).l,a6
    2.     move.l    #$65300003,4(a6)
    3. if (panicMode == 1) {
    4.     move.l    #$C69FC69E,(a6)
    5.     move.w    #0,(a6)
    6. } else {
    7.     move.l    #$C69FC696,(a6)
    8.     move.w    #$C696,(a6)
    9. }
     
  5. I swear that, either there is some sort of a trick or a hidden time monitor, or it's impossible to beat the boss of Dire Docks 3 if your time limit is 0:59. I know I suck, but I cannot suck THAT hard, can I? :thumbsup:
    The minimum I could do is 1:13 and that's with savestates. :argh: Stumped beyond belief...

    Yes you suck that hard. It is really, really hard to beat that boss in 0:59, but I could do that more than once.
     
  7. Ah, well, I think I'm just going to skip this level then and use level select.

    P.S. It's cruel, even the Inferno Zone with it's SLOW parts was easier, dammit!

    Nice. I really like it. The palette of the first zone reminds me of what I failed to recreate in my first attempt at a hack. You nailed it though :argh:.

    Like the choice of songs too. Good Hack :thumbsup:.

    That particular one is a play on words, think about that: MOONlight SHADOW plays in STARlight zone for SONIC

    I really liked your overall choice of music for this hack; there were a few I thought were weak (invincibility, some of the boss themes), but they aren't much of a big deal. Among the ones I found especially fitting were the Super Mario 64 themes, Metallic Madness "P" Mix, and the PC version of Ice Cap Zone Act 2. Also the fact that you've managed to squeeze one Banjo song in here is awesome alone.

    The color palettes are fine (Ice Hill Zone being my favorite, since snow levels are usually lovely), but the only one I don't really like is the blue-and-orange combination on The Factory Zone Act 1; for some reason, the orange draws my attention to it way too much. If it was a brighter shade similar to that found in Act 3, I think it would be a bit more pleasing to the eyes. Oddly enough, I don't really have a problem with Act 2's palette, but that might be because I'm biased towards green.

    Overall though, I really enjoyed playing through this.
     
  13. This is an excellent hack! You should show that B+START will give you the options screen though. I only knew how to access it because of this thread.

    The music is brilliantly chosen, the Flintstones theme tune was well imported and as were all the Mario ones. In fact, that is an excellent playlist as a whole. Well done!

    The level layout is definitely more challenging than the original Sonic layout and the design of each level is great with the good choice of colours.

    So far, I'd give it a rating of 9.5/10.0

    I've yet to record a video for soniNeko 1.1, you know I tend to procrastinate a lot, I'm a lazy guy.

    Also, try C+start as well :)

    And thanks for the feedback :)

    Sorry for the double post, but I felt that this video was due: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTZv4hDKWaY

    Also, shame on Youtube for screwing up the volume.

    Firstly, I read this, and probably a few other people including nineko, and thought I should post it here.
    Secondly, nice work on that 0:59 timing. It looked really close at the end.
