Re: Another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remake - AS2R

Changelog:
- Fully ported to new version of opensurge, which means you can now jump while holding the down arrow key, and crushing blocks now kill Sonic instead of warping him.
- Fixed an issue on UGZ Act 1's boss where a 9th ball hitting the Antlion could softlock the game. Also Eggman can no longer fire balls upon defeat.
- Minor level design tweaks for UGZ Act 2.

Will you ship the Minecart for SAGE?

Well I have a week to myself next week to develop, I will try to crack this! I have an idea of what to try next, which is creating the rails as objects instead of bricks, which can change the animation and force the player forward if they've interacted with the minecart controller (which, in this demo, you'll see it changes Sonic's animation for a split second). A lot more work needs to be done to fully replicate the original minecart's behaviour (which allows Sonic to look up and down while the minecart moves, can crash into walls to be destroyed, can be jumped out of in motion, and can even destroy spikes!). Sonic 2 has some very interesting gimmicks

Re: Another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remake - AS2R

Changelog:
- New power up added, Minecart Monitor. Will force the player right until they are hit. Works like a shield (it is a modified shield). Works as a temporary workaround for real Minecarts.
- UGZ Act 1 has been tidied up, redesigned to account for the minecarts, and extended before the Boss. Minecart focused challenges added.
- Changed the default 1up jingle to a sound effect that doesn't over-ride the main music. Unfortunately collecting 100 rings forces the old behaviour to play a jingle so I changed the jingle to an 8 bit remix of the Mega Drive 1up jingle

Looking neat. I wish you the best of luck!!

EDIT: the minecart minigame plays really well with the level design. This is actually a great demo!

Re: Another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remake - AS2R

The Demo and link have now been updated!

Based on player feedback and using my new art equipment I am proud to present Sky High Zone Act 1. You can play in this sandbox and see all the new assets which were made from the ground up. I hope you enjoy it. Access it either using the level select, or by jumping over the animal capsule in UGZ Act 2 and using the minecart to the right (It's like a secret exit!).

Also new to this demo is the Fire Dash ability for the Fire Shield

Have a bunch of screenshots!

Re: Another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remake - AS2R

Hello. I am prepping my game for another public demo, which means I need beta testers! I have added a new link to the first post.

My main concerns are:
- random crashes (since adding new scripts my game now crashes sometimes and I do not know why).
- Colours and art direction for the levels being easy on the eyes (Sonic's sprites have not changed yet)
- Performance (sometimes the game cant run at 60fps)
- Level design

Here's some screenshots to tempt you

Oh, I also changed the name of the project. As reference to the fact Sonic 2 has loads of remakes, and a cheeky nod to AM2R, the wonderful Metroid 2 Remake that also took years to develop

Re: Another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remake - AS2R

I can help you with the crashes and the scripting errors, provided that you report exactly what these errors are and when they happen.

Regarding the art direction and the level design, it's all up to you smile, but I will say that I appreciate the direction this game is taking.

Keep up the good work! cool
