If I can learn how to program things in Lua and if I can learn how all of this works, I would like to do all of that and have this Sonic play as much like SA1 as possible, but that's not going to be for quite some time before I am at the point where I will attempt this stuff.if this turns into a mod and if your struggling with power ideas, i got a few!
lightdash from sonic adventure
spindash spam (aka Spamdash), a trick from sonic adventure
normal dash, works like light dash but can be used anywhere and doesnt move you through a line of rings
thats all i got for now.
Anyway. here is what I have of his back facing running animation:
It's a bit rough (his back details need more consistency, but OBS' compression sorta smeared some of the details between frames in a few spots in my recorded footage, so that will require some old-fashioned hand drawn pixel art), but it's pretty good so far. The blue is just a quick hue adjustment and isn't from SRB2's actual palette; it's just for show.
I greatly appreciate all of the compliments towards this.
