Topic: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/9937/axsx05.png


-------UPDATE-------
Ok Guys!
Here is the Winter 2011 Public Beta that was promised. (this is the first Public demo for this project since we started in 2006)
I ended up using the 2010 Closed Beta level from the old engine,
as I didn't have the time to properly Construct a new level with so many lose ends to tie up.

Please Note: that Some sections of Winter Demo are based on layouts of the E3 1996 video.
However, this layout has been modified quite a bit to make up for the missing sections I Haven't,t yet recreated.
Personally I feel the Layout in the original E3 demo was horrible, Probably was built as a testing ground and nothing more.
So, Ya! ummmmm.... Many areas that were shown in videos and such will probably stay as bonus levels that the player will need to unlock!

Also Please keep in mind that this is Its A beta, so ya,, ummm......please no Bitchen about how crappy the level layout is, or how crappy the game is in its current state,,,, ect ect.

Any Bugs found Please report! Just in case we missed them,

Some known bugs:
1.Sonics sprite wackes out when moving around initially when the game first loads up. ( This Will be fixed)
2.Camera sometimes Wackes out (Very rare, Can be fixed, cause by collision issues)
3.Some collision Issues where sonic walks over the Frozen water, he hovers in the air, (Fixable)
4.If level is Rotated, and jumping near some walls This causes sonic to jump Funky, ( Cause Known, Easily Fixable)
5.There is no 3ed life, when you die, and the game hangs there,,,,( fixable)

------Requested!------
Please Submit Your System Specs and the Frame Rate That your system produces.
SEE NOTES with-in RAR FILE on how to Check FPS!

Thanks in Advance,

You know what they say...

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

A couple of things:
1. When Sonic was near the edge (but not where he could fall off), a black box appeared, usually near the bottom of the 'hog, but sometimes on top as well.

2. For whatever reason, forward and backward were reversed on my controller! My controller is a Logitech Dual Action, which is not properly supported by Sonic Generations.


All in all, a MUCH nicer demo than last time! Nwehehehe!

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

let me know if this disscussion is too early and ill delete my post

Andrew completely off topic but

i was wondering if sometime if you have time if you could set-up a blank level slate for me in whatever program you are using. with individual blocks with various textures from jade gully i could copy and paste the blocks to construct the level. <kinda like the old level editor for this project>

i have everything all drawn out for jade gully 2 player, i could give you the drawn out version and you can construct as you see fit or you could give me blocks and i could construct it for you

the method im using right now is hard and inefficient im viewing the level in the level viewer, taking pictures, and editing it in paint.

take a look

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

OH MY GOSH!!!! I play Sonic Xtreme..........IT'S SO AWESOME!!! Even if this is just a demo, it's really promising. I know that a lot of fan game die before being finish, but please, PLEASE, dont let this one die. Prove to everybody that some fan game don't always get cancelled before his completion. Don't let Sonic Xtreme being cancelled.....again. This fan game is WAY too awesome. Just like Sonic would say: Way Past Cool!!! Just by curiosity, how far the development is by now? how much was complete from the game? Did i already say that this game is awesome big_smile ?

I'm a french Canadian, so don't hurt me if my english can seem odd at time.

Now that you use UDK, is a Mac Version a possibility?

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

I just played the demo and all I could say is great work. I was astounded about how much progress you guys have made for us ever since the last update and The project looks alot more like sonic xtreme then ever, however there is one little thing I wanted to point out when I was playing......

http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lb8comE5qT1qdtw9eo1_500.jpg

I just noticed while I was playing that sonic was way more zoomed out of the camera then what he is in the original videos of sonic xtreme that are on the internet and in my opinion to be the most accurate I think you guys should make the view of sonic the same as it is in the original cancelled sonic xtreme so it would look really close to the original. Keep up the good work guys Its looking way past cool!

Also here's the a screenshot from your demo for comparison

If these pictures dont show up I think you guys know what I mean big_smile

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

Sorry if the pictures didnt show up I dont really even know how to upload pictures to this fourms anyways big_smile but I think you guys know what I mean the camera position on sonic is more far away then the original

Re: Winter 2011 (First Ever Public Beta Demo)!

Actually here is the best picture links I could find to show you guys what I mean
