    Im going to play around with some title card designs. I want some feedback/ideas about something though... End of acts; "SONIC HAS PASSED ACT 1", "SONIC GOT THROUGH ACT 1" or something entirely different?

    Out of the 2 I Like "Sonic Has Passed Act _" Better. Maybe on the last Act in a Zone:

    Sonic Has Passed (INSERT NAME OF ZONE).

    The last Act could be a little bit more different, like "Sonic Has Cleared (INSERT NAME OF ZONE)." "Cleared" gives a bit more the feeling of completion.

    Could have different phrases depending on how well you did? Like a very basic unobtrusive grading system

    I am all for "SONIC HAS PASSED.." And I really like the idea of changing it a little at the end of the level and adding the zone name. Good thinking!

    I kind of like this idea. Perhaps if you get a below average score you will "pass" the stage, but if you do well enough you will "master" it. So instead of saying "Sonic Has Passed...." it could say "Sonic Has Mastered...."

    And if you lose all your lives and rings, "Sonic barely managed to struggle through..."

    I did some work on a potential title card design and I came up with something classic and new. Keep in mind, I threw in a zone name that I thought up.. so it's not an official name for the Tropical Zone, that stuff is later.

    Beginning title card...

    When the zone is exposed.. I threw in Rika and Phoebius' background design.

    I still think this one's the best so far. Love the ring in the "Act 1" and the little phrase "Welcome to the Next Level"

    Agreed, maybe a selection of different fonts could be experimented with but I really think that one is the best overall design we have so far

    Complete with alternate out-of-tune music, like Unleashed? =P

    Or "Sonic Barely Made It" Also, Unleashed-style out of tune music would be awesome. That kind of makes me wonder what Sonic's theme would be in this game. Sonic 1/2 style, or the Sonic 3 and Knuckles style used in today's games.

    Wait...so you're not using the same resolution as the 16-bit games now...?
