With NiGHTS's inclusion as part of bonuschars, as of SRB2 Kart version 1.0.4, there's no real reason to use the actual character wad file unless you're some kind of crazy person still playing on an older version. However, if you liked the Saturn SFX previously used over NiGHTS's actual voice actor used in bonuschars, I will now provide you with a separate wad file that will replace the voice included with bonuschars. Please note that this wad file does not work client-side, and it's up to the server owner to decide if they want to use it.

What follows now is the original post made here, for archival purposes.
__________________________________________________ ______________

This felt fitting to make, given SRB2's history of containing NiGHTS homages.

Boasting a speed value of 7 and a weight value of 2*, NiGHTS is ALMOST as fast as Sonic, but not quite. This is compensated by slightly better acceleration.

NiGHTS was sprited in a way that takes advantage of the more varied, contrasting color choices available in SRB2 Kart. No coding magic utilized here. The "pomegranate" and "dusk" colors in particular give appearances close to NiGHTS's standard color scheme.

I had wanted to release this days earlier, but struggled to find proper voices. I wanted the voice from the Wii game, Journey of Dreams, so the character would better fit with alongside the other Sonic Team characters, but failed to find enough usable material. I also tried looking through Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, but looking for any specific character's voice clips in that game's files proved to be an impossible nightmare. (no pun intended)

In the end, I used the three tiny voice clips that existed for NiGHTS in the original Saturn game, and following the advice of an in-game chat, just filled out the rest of the "voice lines" with appropriate sound effects from the original game, as well.

The sounds were ripped from the game through the sound test, using the SSF emulator.

*only applies to this separate WAD, bonuschars weight is 1.

Version "1.0.4"
- Added separate Saturn SFX wad, since the full wad is now outdated.

Version 1.1
- NiGHTS was intended to have a speed value only one below Sonic's. The SRB2 Wiki says Sonic's speed value is currently 8.
  The speed value of NiGHTS was changed to 7, from 6, in light of this. I don't plan to change it again. This is final.
  Not enough people were using NiGHTS at this time for me to worry about alienating anyone with a stat change.
- Head shading on ALL sprites touched up to be more consistent with each other.
- Front view of face redrawn to look a little nicer.
- Arms in front view adjusted to look more consistent with other sprite angles.
- Arms in back-side view (Angles 4 and 6) adjusted to look more consistent with other sprite angles.
- Back views of collar and head redrawn to look more consistent with other sprite angles.
- Split M1O1 and N1P1 into separate sprites for consistent eye shine regardless of drifting direction.
- All sprites had empty space above and below them trimmed in an effort to save a little more file size.

Version 1.01
- Converted WAD to PK3 and removed unnecessary lumps to optimize filesize for players downloading through game servers.
- Adjusted volume for NiGHTS's boost item use and successful opponent hit sounds.

Version 1
- Initial Release as a WAD file.

This looks really really nice! Though i wish Kart's purple palettes could be a bit more colorful, it really doesn't do it justice.
If you want something done right, do it yourself, or don't, idk.

I've converted the WAD to a PK3 for the new SRB2 Kart update. This is for the convenience of anyone hosting a server with this character who has people without the character connect to them.
I also increased the volume of a couple of sounds since I didn't think they were noticeable enough.

Mr. McScrewup

I've given NiGHTS's sprites various facelifts, and adjusted the speed value from 6 to 7.
Unless I figure out a good implementation of that two-layer sprite palette script that the Mario and Kirby WADs use, this will likely be the last update I make to it.
