Checkered Zig Zags is a simple graphic replacement with the intent of making SRB2 a bit more interesting and colorful!

I attempted to keep the overall "feel" that the original SRB2 had while still making things flashy enough so that it all doesn't seem too samey. You can also expect some resemblances to Sonic CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles!

NOTE: If you wish to, you can use "CZZTitleCards.wad" and/or "CZZRings.wad" in conjunction with the regular wad to bring back the previous title card and ring-shaped match rings graphics, respectively. (Add them AFTER you've added the main wad!)


v1.5a: - Edited graphics for:
-BSZ's Tulips
-Emblem for Ring collecting
-New graphics for CTF's HUD Flags.
v1.5: - Edited graphics for:
-End Plate
-Title Cards' Numbers
-Super Sparkle
-CTF Mode's Flags
-Tag Mode's "IT" icon
-NiGHTS Mode's third help screen
-The Title Screen's background
-Added an extra frame for the Starpost due to the 2.1.15 patch.
v1.4: - New graphics for:
- CEZ's Ceiling Chains
- Ideya Capture
- Super Sparkles
- Invincibility Sparkles
- FIXED: The Title Cards' shadow.
- FIXED: CZZRings.wad used the wrong graphic for the Rail Ring's HUD icon.
v1.3: - New graphics for:
- Match rings
- HUD numbers
- Minor improvements regarding the file size.
- "CZZTitleCards.wad" and "CZZRings.wad" are now available. They use the previous title card and ring-shaped match rings graphics, respectively. Instructions above.
v1.2: - There's now a "CheckeredZigZagsX" wad inside the rar, this one doesn't have annoying title cards.

v1.1: -New graphics for the help screens.
-Removed the original SRB2's Ideya Capture sprites.

Okay, Thanks for letting me know. Not sure why nobody mentioned this before...

Hoo boy. It's been quite some time since I last checked on this, hasn't it?

I'm just dropping by real quick to say that I am currently working on a new update for this wad! It's not dead!

Looking back at some of the old graphics, I noticed that a few things looked sort of cluttered or not very consistent with the overall... "style", I guess. The new update will probably amend that by making a couple of them smaller so that it matches SRB2's sizes better.

...Not TOO too different from what it was, though.

The new update will also allow you to save your game in a CZZ-specific save file!

You won't need to start an entire new save just for the wad either! It seems like copying and renaming your original gamedata.dat file is enough. You can't do the same thing for .ssg files, unfortunately.

Oh, things like the offsets will be fixed, too:

This is the best I could do so that the countdown doesn't completely disappear in OpenGL mode since, for some reason, it pushes certain things downwards.

While the new update will mostly focus on changing the previous graphics a bit, there will still be some new things as well! There's a lot of work that still needs to be done, though, so unfortunately I can't see this being released very soon... Please understand.

Well, I really didn't expect an update, to be honest. The new changes are looking nice so far, on the first and third GIF, is that a new score, time & rings HUD I spy?
