I'll save the sprite updates for later, but here's the CSS DrStephen made for Adventure Sonic!
He did a WONDERFUL job at sketching, drawing, coloring and downscaling the image for SRB2.
BIG THANK YOU TO DRSTEPHEN!!!
To be honest, now that I look back on this, I question how the Crystal Ring will come into play.
It was purposed in SA1 to limit the time needed for the Light Speed dash (which back then needed a spindash in order to activate). However, if your gonna use the more well know SA2 Light speed dash, it would be pretty interesting to see how the Crystal Ring would work.
