Sonic 3 and Knuckles: Co-op
« on: June 04, 2013, 10:41:15 pm »
Hello everyone! Here is my new Sonic 3 And Knuckles hack! This new hack has new playable combined characters you can play as.

Here are the combined characters:

- Sonic & Knux

- Knux & Sonic

- Knux & Tails

- Tails & Sonic

-Tails & Knux

 Now here are some screenshots, showing some of the characters:



Sonic and Knuckles are now working together!



Tails is now Knuckles's sidekick!



Tails can now be a leader and have Sonic as his sidekick!
 
And here's a video I made that demonstrates my hack of how the new combined characters work.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tspx6wnq86Y

Progress:

- All combined characters and their proper functions - 100%
 
- Fixed Bugs - 90% (There are still some graphic bugs that I need to fix: The new combined characters in the Special Stage, and The Save Menu.)

So tell me what you think of my hack so far! Comments and Constructive criticism are always welcome!  :)

Sounds like a great idea. Is this finished? I don't see a download link and you didn't really give any indication on how far along this is.

Alright everyone! I have another update to my S3K hack. It's a new ability I added that allows you to swap between the two players.
Here's a link to the video that demonstrates of how it works.

It's too bad there are no download links anywhere. I would really love to play this hack...

The idea seems good, but I can't see what good it would do, except for being a great basis for making a Genesis version of Sonic Advance 3.

http://sonicresearch.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=3591

Are you asking about the code snippet posted there? That's assembly language and that piece of code is part of the S3&K disassembly. Check out this website if you're interested:

http://info.sonicretro.org/Main_Page

It has tons of information about Sonic in general and how to hack games. It also provides tutorials about assembly and other stuff. You can also find the programs the hack creator most likely used to make the changes.

Are you just curious about this hack or are you interested in hacking Sonic games?

You can find the disassemblies for the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games here:

http://info.sonicretro.org/Disassemblies

You need to learn Motorola 68000 assembly and at least the basics for Megadrive/Genesis programming. You can find tutorials quite easily if you google them. The Sonic Retro website can also be a good starting point.

If you have other questions, you can ask in the Programming section or send me a PM and I'll see if I can help you. However for Sonic 3 in particular you should ask someone who is more experienced and made some hacks for it; they can surely give you some good advice and guidelines if you happen to get stuck.

Alright guys! I have more updates for my S3K-Coop hack with some new screenshots.



I made a brand new hub, with a life counter for the second player!  :)

I have also added some tethering between the two players, like Knuckles Chaotix.



I have also added a new character selection menu that also allows you to pick any color for the players!

So any comments or criticisms are welcome! :)

I also apologize for the bump and the long time for updates, I was just busy with stuff.  :-\

Looks pretty sweet! But hasn't this been done before?

There was a Knuckles with Tails as a sidekick hack, but I don't think there's been an every combination hack like this before.


@Jdpense: Can the tethering be optional? I can kinda see that putting people off. Though if it does, could one still choose to go solo?

Yes, the tethering will be an optional thing.

And yes, there is also an option for solo mode I've added, in case if you wanted to play alone. ;)

Are you planning on adding other features for your teams? Anyway this looks very interesting and I like what you've been implementing so far.
