Topic: Loading Screens and ect.

I noticed during development they had at least two loading screens for Sonic Xtreme.

and this one for Giza Speedway

Also I found this opening logo scene

Are these going to make their way into this game?

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

Well due to the fact that this game is going to resemble the PC port more than anything the "Sonic Saturn" logo likely won't be used at all.

The level specific loading screens are interesting (and I've done my own twist on them for the website before Xeniczone left the project) but I would say that they're an afterthought at this point and we don't even know how long loading times will be yet (if at all).

As for the exploding SEGA logo I don't see it happening at all. Unless the actual graphic exists somewhere online it never made it off paper and it might end up not being used at all. The SEGA logo might end up being more generic and will most likely be used as a disclaimer (All properties copyright SEGA, etc).

I'd like to go ahead and point out that I'm not directly involved with the project and that this is just my view on it. The most I do for this game right now is pseudo advertising lol.

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

I had thought about doing the exploding logo myself. but it would take to much work time away from main aspects of game development. ( for now i'm not sure if I want to do it or not)
I do have the fonts for the Egyptian loading screen though.

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

these are really the icing on the cake

the last steps in re-creating the game

also as far as i understand both games will be featured the saturn + pc so i dont know why t0K thinks the saturn logo is rendered useless

but this doesnt boil down to will they be in the game but would you make them for the game this is really a graphical editors job so someone with knowlege of and creativity should mock these together

if u have the hand id say do it cool

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

If you guys make something like this to match the loading screen style shown above, It may end up in the game with full credits. But we'd need a screen for each area.

some of these could have something to do with xtreme some look like they could belong to crystal frost, red sands, jade gully. . but some look like sonic mars concepts and pre-xtreme concept cool

These were purely concept art.

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

Well I'll see what I can do, but at the very least they might be the title cards the slide to the left and you begin the level.

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

Here's a couple of old pieces I did for the forums way back when Xenic was doing the Orange/Yellow Mystery boards. They're based off the Giza loading concept but are transparent at the bottom.

The Giza screen was easy because the concept art and font exist. The rest of the level-specific screens would require quite a bit of thought since there's virtually no source material to base it off of.

Also, Andrew, would you be using the same level format (World name followed by stage name) or a more traditional one (World name followed by act number)?

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

I'm leaning towards Zone and act number.
For most of the .def file recreations I will be using file name for the level titles.
most of them just don't seem like real levels to me.

idk these look like stuff for Sonic Saturn though I could be wrong, they're really cool looking whatever they are.

The 7th one down looks kind of like Robotropolis or something.

Re: Loading Screens and ect.

looking at the concept art. crystal frost and thoes ruins are used in the background of the conceptual boxart tongue same ice formation. any higher quality avalible?

its nice to see how our favorite games evolved from conception to reality
