So, after making KeepStatus.lua as a warmup, I decided to take it a lot further and see what Lua could really do. What I ended up with is this: A functioning Sonic 3 style bonus stage warp. It is designed to work with any starpost in any level, including custom WADs.

Here's how it works:

First, collect 50 rings, then run through a starpost. Once you've done that, you'll see a ring of sparkles appear over the starpost. Jump into the sparkles and you'll disappear, then you'll be sent to the bonus stage.

The bonus stage is basically just a long hall with the waterslide special effect, but without the water. The stage uses gumballs similar to the ones in Sonic 3's bonus stages. In fact, they're all just recolors of Sonic 3's sprites. All you have to do is touch them to get them.

Blue B gives you Force Shield
White B gives you Whirlwind Shield
Yellow B gives you Attraction Shield
Green B gives you Elemental Shield
Black B gives you Armageddon Shield
Ring gumball gives you 10 Rings
Purple 1UP gives you an extra life

Once you've finished the bonus stage, you'll be sent back to the starpost you came from, with all the rings, shields, and 1UPs you collected from it.

UPDATE: Bonus Stage should now work in Co-op!

WARNING: ./Characters/Silver.wad|LUA_SSIN:189: attempt to compare number with nil

My Silver.wad was last updated on May 11th, so I'm not sure whether I have the latest version or not.

Regardless, these seem more like character issues than issues with the Bonus Stage. If you could give me more details about what problems you're seeing, I might be able to help more.
With Shadow, the Bonus Stage is unplayable like an broken level on Doom. With Silver, his script can... Break? anyways,

Telling me "It's broken" isn't very descriptive. Aside from the two problems I mentioned in my previous post, everything is working fine for me. You need to give me more details about what is happening if you want me to fix whatever it is you're seeing.

Modification makers are not expected to maintain compatibility with other addons, with the more complicated script assuming culpability - which is typically custom characters. You'd best ask Lat and Speedwagon to fix any potential conflicts, rather than pestering FuriousFox about it.

Also, as he said - your error description is extremely vague, and you can't expect anyone to know what you're talking about if you don't give specifics.

The Silver error is not caused by your bonus stage but by my scripting skills (it's an error from the script that is used to display Super Frames). Apologies for that lol. However, I can't see any problem with Shadow, I just tested it out of curiosity and it all worked alright.

I wonder if Sonic 3 & Knuckles Giant Rings as a method for entering Special Stages could work with this?

There's an issue. I know it's a WIP but just in case this gets finished, here it is: when getting an emerald token and collecting 50 rings, the starpost teleports you to the Special Stage, then the Bonus Stage.
