Hey guys. Seems you found our movies.
So Sonic and I are going to start the thing back up soon. The editor is also on a halt, maybe I can coax Treeki enough to keep going with it. (Something about being unable to get some graphics to display)
Well now that the movies are out, I might as well say stuff about it
1-1 was nearly done completely by hand. We were using the editor version 1.4 back then which was majorly limited. So we pretty much hexed in all the enemies by hand and moved the few tiles we could with the editor. We found the object modifiers during this level. At this time, pipe data wasn't found.
I went on vacation and completed 1-3 with an upgraded editor. I had to mess around with the ROM until I could find the moving platform data.
the rest of the time, both of us attempted 1-2... which is, too say... back on the drawing board...
After we gave up on 1-2 for a bit, we went back to 1-1 and cleaned up it's act by fixing the pipes and then went back to perfecting 1-3's moving platforms.
We realized we couldn't continue until we got 1-2 working, so we took one more shot at it... It still came out bad, but it seems to me, now that I thought about it, we should be able to get through it this time.
With more recent tools and findings, we should be able to get 1-4 off the ground once 1-2 is out of our way. With any luck, we should be able to have a nice complete world 1 done soon enough.
