Hey there everyone!

Let's get right to the point.

Abilities:

Super Dash Mode
Spoiler:
Alt Sonic has Dash Mode, minus the badnik busting and spike breaking. This is where Super Dash Mode comes in. This is represented by a sound cue, colorization, afterimages, sparkles in the color of the player, and a unique running animation. If the player builds enough speed within Dash Mode, they will enter a state where they are not only at peak speed, but can also break spikes/monitors and can't be harmed.


Atom Dash
Spoiler:
Instead of a regular thok, Alt Sonic has the Atom Dash. The Atom Dash is basically a chargeable thok with special properties. Upon pressing and holding a double jump, the player will be suspended in the air, and will enter Atom Charge. Atom Charge has 3 levels, along with an overcharge. Each level is represented by a paraloop surrounding the player, along with a sound cue. With each level, the paraloops increase in number. You can either tap the button for a weaker dash, or hold it for a stronger one. This also changes with Dash Mode, gaining an instant level 1 charge and higher power. If held for too long however, you'll overcharge it and fall helplessly.


Spindrift
Spoiler:
Replacing the Spindash there is the Spindrift, a Spindash that can be initiated anywhere on the ground. This is mainly useful for preserving Dash Mode and making sharp turns.


Miscellaneous changes
Spoiler:
- If the player presses spin while in the spring state, they will enter jump state.
- Super Sonic has all upsides of Dash Mode/Super Dash Mode and more, breaking spikes upon contact as well as having the strongest possible Atom Dash. There is a tradeoff of having no Dash Mode, however.
- Alt Sonic comes with his own color of AltBlue. He also has a custom Super Color.
- A special surprise if the player presses ring toss as Super Sonic with 100+ rings...
- A special command for those that want a blast from the past... (legacymode)
- Some easter eggs.


I've legit been working on this for basically a year now, and I can say it's finally the best it can be.

As of 7.3, the Alt Sonic MD3 is no longer available for download. Things have changed too much and support for the model has been broken in quite a few places. If Jeck Jims happens to want to make an official release, however, I may update this thread. I hope you all can understand.

Now with everything out of the way, Enjoy.

CHANGELOG:
Spoiler:

v7.3 - The "last one ever I promise" Update. This update was originally going to be an extremely minor one, so much so it wouldn't have even been 7.3. However, adding in a few more changes has managed to make this update a little bigger than originally planned.
- The hyper transformation sequence has been completely overhauled, sporting a custom animation along with a unique sound effect and wonderful Super Emerald sprites by Golden. The Atom Dash method, however, has been removed entirely. It caused a bit of issues, so it had to go.
- Replaced the hyper music (NiGHTS Attack) with something a bit more fitting.
- Reverted hyper afterimages to the old method since the S3K version was... not great.
v7.4 - The I/O update. I legit got some complaints about there being no I/O so it's here now. At least it was easier to implement than I thought.
Also please don't ask me to do anything else folks, I really don't want to work on this any more.
v7.5 - The Anniversary Update. This update wasn't going to be made, but a surprise was in store for me come the 1 year anniversary of Alt Sonic. There is now brand new CSS art made by the wonderful DrStephen! This update also has some extremely minor tweaks included, mostly related to bugfixing.
v7.5b - An extremely small hotfix patch that fixes dash mode not ending properly in hyper form along with fixing atom dash screen nukes misbehaving.

On one hand, the 'Easter Egg' made me laugh. On the other, I grew to hate hearing it over and over fast. Easily makes any stage with fire damage or pits annoying to me- I'd suggest that you add an option to disable it because playing Alt v4 again I stopped on any level that had fire damage or frequent pits. It's annoying as hell and piercing to the ears even with how low I usually have the sounds.

Jump in lava or pits. Anywhere that deals fire damage also works.

I will quickly mention; an update to give some more visual flair (and fix the frequency of the easter egg) is currently being worked on, but it may take a bit due to a few things currently out of my control.

Could we toggle the easter egg on and off, so when it gets annoying, we could turn it off?

With how rarely it occurs currently (not in the current public release) you'd have to actively try to get it for it to be annoying, thankfully.

Fun fact: Metal Sonic actually has something you could call "Super Dash Mode."
It only adds new particles and higher speed, but it's there. Idk if you know this but I'm just putting it here because it's kinda hard to get outside levels like Greenflower.

Icezer, would you bring back the Legacy version of Alt Sonic? I know you think the legacy version is bad, but please! I love it!

Legacy will not be brought back regardless of how many people want it. I personally can not stand letting something with so much lack of cohesion (as well as bad design) exist alongside the present version. Please understand that due to personal reasons, Legacy will not be brought back. Ever.

I can kinda see why you wanted him gone. He's basically SA1 Sonic.

Okay, I can understand your opinion on Legacy Alt Sonic being a bad version of Alt Sonic himself, and I can respect that. It's just a classic version of Sonic Adventure 1 Sonic.

5.0.1 has been pushed. Of course a bug slipped under the radar during testing, but it got found at least. Also made a balance change while i was at it.

So it turns out the bug I thought I fixed related to the Atom Dash cues not working wasn't actually fixed. Until I figure out why it occurs, just know that entering dash mode will fix said bug.

it seems that the game writes the atom dash charge level or whatever (canceling at 115) to the console every tic, creating absurdly large log files

The current file up for download fixed this issue.
