Also check out the new Bumpers ! they are sprites but also receive shadows via an invisible sphere model.
And yes they are animated to spin ! ( similar to the 1 up sphere) (as for the texture, I'm not sure if it will change)

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Hey, that looks pretty good!

I just noticed: Have you always been using a 64-bit development platform?

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Yes 64 bit OS

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Nice! So the game is also optimized for 64 bit operating systems.
Also you used DX9 for development so that Windows XP users can also enjoy the game?

IMPORTANT!
PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE PICTURE'S INSTRUCTION BELOW.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Im just using UDK, it uses DX 9 and 11 , im building the game to use 9

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

I'm guessing there won't be any tiny little DX11 features for those that can use it? tongue

(Though I suppose that kind of stuff might be a bit overkill/unnecessary for what you're going for here. lol )

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

No DX 11 features for the project. I've tested some of them and they break the Direct X 9 features for the 1000s of materials I have set up already. ( which were done 1 by 1 by hand) I'd have to do a separate build of the game changing 1000s just to add the DX 11 features that wont really benefit the project visually. It would literally take about a month to retweek everything i've added so far , that would be a huge setback.)

Ah, wow.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

In that case, it's definitely not worth it. Forget I suggested it. wink

Considering that even Generations uses DX9, and it still looks great, it's doubly not worth it.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

What's new with this project then atm? If anything. You said you were possibly going for a SAGE 2014 demo? and if so when exactly is SAGE this year?

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Hmm,, Mainly Bug-fixes and an original stage of my own creation. 45 of the original def file levels are done for the most part including jade gully crystal frost and red sands... However code work is holding things back and tieing the levels together properly. I don't think I will make Sage this time. I want more issues to be cleaned up before people play this. ( also don't have time to put togeather the sage booth page right now, I'm swamped with Work.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

Ok, thanks for the update. I know you're against it in the first place, but I wouldn't mind a playable build with only a few minor issues. Of the New Worlds or New Paths levels perhaps? For us to just mindlessly screw around with in the meantime, lol.

Though, you say you're busy, and that's understandable.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

What is your job, btw? If you don't mind me asking.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

What's this you ask?!
This is an Auto generated texture that is set up using a custom Unreal 4 shader to mimic the auto generated texture features from later builds of the original Sonic Xtreme.
However it's not quite perfect yet because there has been some guess work done on what kinds of patterns can be generated automatically outside of the patterns I already know.
Known patterns are, Checkers, Gradient, an X shape, stripes, and a Frame shape. The gradients can have various bar counts for example 2, 4, 8, 16 ect
In the picture above you can see a combination of shapes mentioned above and a gradient of 8, all generated inside the material, I excluding the stripes for this screen.

Re: The Random Updates Topic!

I've done a lot of new technical stuff in Unreal 4 on top of porting most of the assets over from UDK.
