That filename prefix has almost every letter available to use in it, wild. But otherwise, 14 years of Glaber maps condensed into one pack huh, it was interesting playing all of these again after all this time.

Just a heads up, I've replaced the imgur link for the character compatibility image with an attachment to bring the OP in line with the formatting guidelines. The actual content is unchanged.

I don't want to make you feel bad for me, but I felt depressed alter playing this map-pack at 3:30 am (Right now) I played at least 2 zones and I started feeling empty and worthless.
I don't want to say it's your fault, but I usually don't feel like that...

I started to play it with Sonic.

Green Hill - Very short, but nice, I guess the blocky look is designed to make it evoke Sonic 1 as much as possible.

Diamondous - Also evokes the game it originally came from, but getting to the end sign caused the game to freeze and I could not advance. This is why my feedback stops here.

Maybe I am supposed to use the batch file instead, I will test.
EDIT: Batch file works well, further feedback will go into this post.


Spoiler: more feedback

- I don't think Mystic Castle, especially act 1, hit the heights of the stages before it, the claustrophobic design and the ambushes represented a major spike in difficulty and the outdoor areas had very little detail. Maybe open it up a little with larger rooms and add more details. It appears to be one of the older maps since I don't see much in the way of slopes for starters.
- White Halloween, especially act 2, appeared to have largely sparse layouts where large sections was simply running across wide flat areas. Those areas could use some slopes and other details to encourage more platforming, or simply areas where the player needs to slow down a little. Lowering the walls a bit in several sections might be nice to see.
- Haunted Manor appears to be a very old map since the legacy crawla design is used here, so it could use updates to take full advantage of what the SRB2 engine can do now.
- The Fang/Metal Sonic double-team was crazy and found it difficult to hold onto rings, at least you couldn't fall out of the arena (as that would be frustrating), and it was nice to be treated to extra lives afterward.
- The red rings are a nice touch and add a bit of replayability, I wouldn't make any changes regarding that.

Overall (so far), I understand that some of these are rather old levels from a time when you were probably less experienced, and it probably didn't help that something like Zone Builder did not exist. I anticipate the newer levels look far better.

Spoiler: more feedback

- Medivo looks like it's one of those levels that was not edited to take into account the new charging behavior of the Egg Guards, the level has areas absolutely flooded with them and it's almost impossible to hold onto rings (as it was with Mystic Castle). I think now, you can make due with less of them because of how the 2.2 version is more difficult to kill.
- Rusty Bucket Bay is different from the usual custom level. There is no enemies and it's not possible to die or lose rings when you have the Elemental Shield, just an emerald hunt with two red rings that are apparently very well hidden (as I have not found them).
- Emerald Lake was a massive step up in quality compared to the zones before, it was nice, expansive, and multi-layered. Even with the underwater sections, it was a nice reprieve from the zones before. I noticed I will need to go through the level again with Knuckles because of the presence of many walls only he can break.
- Don't have much opinion on the Christmas levels, the village one at least did an interesting take on general zone design (as short as it was). I understand these levels were made when the SRB2 engine in general was less capable and when you weren't as experienced.

Now i'm not sure if this is an issue in the wad itself or it's just srb2 being srb2, but i got a SIGABRT error immediately after touching the capsule in Frozen Battery

I think it's srb2 being srb2 as I've seen other reports, plus encountered my own share of sigabrts that I can't explain.

Another possibility I just thought of, it could be the custom level end music causeing the problem.

I just finished it, it was cute, but a lot of these levels certainly haven't aged as well as some others, my favorites are probably Emerald Lake, Skytop and Icicle Factory.

I was enjoying the pack up until it randomly crashed upon the signpost for Mystic Castle act 2, haven't had anything happen up until that point, regardless loving it so far bugs aside.

Seems these crashes are inconsistent with one exception. They happen at the end of a stage when the end level jingle plays.

Darling. You can't just use something of mine in the pack without asking permission. Pffft, I would have given you it anyways, but I would have liked to have a little say in it -- especially as you got your facts wrong regarding its origin in the blurb you wrote!

There's more to be said about the project, anyways, and I think you're using an outdated version of it, too? Unsure on that last part though, I'd have to dig into my old 2.0 wads.
Planning ahead is for ninnies who think they can predict every possible outcome. The future is mutable! Go with the flow!

Sorry about that, But thank you for allowing it to remain.

Also This is the most up to date version I have of the Moon pond Plus a couple of tweaks of my own. I figured it would be alright as it was a colab level we worked on together.

So, What information did I get wrong? Besided the version of SRB2 we started this in? (just found the original concept wad.)

It wasn't that, I just played it today's mourning and it still feels empty and sad; this stages feel like from 2003, and considering I'm playing it without music...
But I've been enjoining it so far and I really like the feelings I'm getting from it. Although I don't think this is how you are supposed to feel it.

Music usually plays a part in my level design. So if it feels empty without it, that's probably why.

Hey, just a heads up, because this includes the "super everyone" script, this breaks compatibility with my own mod, Many Minor Tweaks. I'd be willing to whip up a patch that just makes this lua script not run if my mod is running if you'd like.

(btw, for some reason this starts off on a CTF map in singleplayer? is that intentional or?)
EDIT: whoops i just realized why it's starting off on a CTF map, it's cuz of another mod i had loaded, my own debug zone lmao, ignore that part
