  1. ...huh, that actually worked! Everything is running the way it should be now! Thanks a lot!
  2. So I finally got around to trying out mods on my steam copy of Generations and for the most part I've been following the instructions pretty carefully. But whenever I try to use the Unleashed project mod I keep coming across the same issues. First off if I do a new game, I automatically start Windmill Isle Act 1 as Classic Sonic with no way to progress past that homing attack spring because he is not equipped with a homing attack. So I either have to load up a saved file or use the 100% clear file they provided to actually enjoy the rest of the mod. Except when I try to on any stage other than Windmill Isle Act 1 or 2, the game crashes before I'm even a minute into the stage. On top of that, enemies don't seem to exist in any of the stages. The most I saw was some Egg Pawns in Arid Sands, but that's about it, they're all barren and crash within the first 30 seconds of playing. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, these issues rarely ever come up in any discussions or videos I see of this mod. Can anyone tell me what I can do to solve these issues? Because I really REALLY want to enjoy this freaking mod, it's the whole reason I'm even bothering to put up with all of this PC gaming confusion nonsense in the first place (I'm more of a console gamer at heart, and this is only pushing me further back into that camp now).
  3. Gotta say, I'm really excited by this. A return to form with the Boost formula is exactly what I've been wishing for ever since Lost World...happened. The use of LW assets kind of has me skeptical, but I'm still so overjoyed to see a return and refinement of the gameplay style I've loved so much. It's honestly what I felt they should have been doing this whole time, keeping what works and refining and adding to it in ways to make it even better. I also love the return to visual flare the Hedgehog Engine 2 seems to promise, I can't wait to see both the graphics and the gameplay in a much more proper resolution in the coming months!
  4. Odd, could have sworn it said March originally. Oh well. Summer still sounds more likely at this point, but I guess we'll see in a few hours.
  5. According to Amazon, the Collector's Edition will release May 31, or at least that's the date they moved it to after March a few months back. Says it will arrive on June 2. Don't know whether it's a placeholder or not, but that does sound believable, considering we haven't gotten too much promotion of the game lately, and it seems like tomorrow they're going to start making up for that before the other larger gaming conventions start happening. Sounds like it might literally be a Summer of Sonic after all.
  6. Half of my whole point was that Amy doesn't really act like that anymore, her infatuation for Sonic has been pretty toned down, so changing her age wouldn't really "ruin" the point of her character. And no matter what age that's at, she hasn't reached true "creepiness" levels at all. People see the fact that she chases him around everywhere and assume it also means she follows him home, into the bathroom, the doctor's office, etc, when you can tell right off that bat she's not that crazy. XP
  7. So basically "here's the general idea", but headcanon still works just as well?
  8. Sigh, well I care about little details like that, so it's really hard for me to "just ignore that and enjoy what's there" when they put it out there in the first place. How exactly would I cope with that, just ignore whatever kind of "official" bio there is about such things and enjoy the rest of the franchise with my own interpretations and impressions unless Sega releases bios that agree with how I view things? If it's really that simple, I guess I could live with that, but it would still be nagging at some part of my head.
  9. At this point I'd rather take intentional vagueness of age rather than clear specificity and then blase attempts at perpetuating the age while also including events that would normally signify an advancing of age. If they had just described Sonic, Amy, and the rest of the cast as "teenagers, kids, young adults, adults, etc." without making a number up for each of them, none of this would have ever been a problem for me. They could have even said that Amy was a "tiny bit younger than Sonic" and I still wouldn't have a problem because I would still have no real number to work with. Why even bother being specific about these characters' ages anyway if they aren't even placed in settings where that would even matter, nobody seems to go to school or drink or anything (and yet seemingly they all can drive...). Again, she still looks a little too close in physical age to Sonic, a 15 year old, to really be passed off as a character meant to cater to that kind of a niche crowd...if that was ever even the intention in the first place (really doubt it was). Those kinds of people are attracted to a body type, not a number.
  10. Did it seriously list him as being 15 in Sonic 1? Cause I don't remember him ever getting a profile for his age until later years. And if he never was given an age at that time, then you could have imagined him as being however younger than his modern self you felt made sense. To me it would have made total sense if there was 4 years between Sonic 1 and Sonic Adventure, and at the same time it still feels plausible that the canon events between Sonic Adventure and Generations took place within the span of a year (if Dragon Ball can have over 60 episodes worth of battles and events happen within the course of one day then who's to say how pacing can work for Sonic games where it doesn't even take you 10 minutes to reach the end of a stage). If it really is a "Simpsons syndrome" then I can concede to that, but if that's the case it's a really bothersome way of continuing the character. It just kind of messes with your suspension of disbelief unless you take care to not revisit too many holidays or year markers or change the character appearance too much between titles (cause once you do, this confusion happens). I'm not saying that real world logic always has to be applied to a piece of fiction, but SOME kind of logic has to exist, otherwise you wouldn't be able to suspend that disbelief too easily.
  11. Okay I'm gonna have to call bull on that. That only works convincingly if you never gave a character's age to begin with, like Mickey Mouse. How else is anyone who knew of Sonic's 15 year old age prior to Generations supposed to interpret that scene? You don't explicitly need candles on a cake to signify you're a year older, it's just an optional ornamentation you can do to that end. I can agree that they never tried to be specific about his birthday details (No "Happy 16th Birthday Sonic" or anything like that), but you're trying to suggest to me that they're trying to maintain this illusion that Sonic can literally have his cake and eat it too? How is anyone supposed to buy that? You could pull that off with characters like Mario cause you never put an age to that name, but as soon as they gave Sonic an age they should have seen this as a possible problem later down the line. If that really is the case though, then they seriously DO need to change how they feel about that, cause that honeslty makes me feel more used than catered to. XP
  12. Well again, not that I disagree with the change in her behavior, I just wish her age backed it up better, at least from a more global perspective. I'm well aware that 13 is the age of consent in Japan, so if it's a matter of cultural difference I supposed that makes a little bit of sense. But everyone's personalities are largely based off of more Western interpretations of these character models (the cocky teenager, the boy genius, the bossy fangirl, etc), these days more than ever. If it really does come down to a matter of cultural differences, it seems really odd that that's the one Eastern thing left in there that isn't shared with the West. But on that note I must ask, how many 12-13 year olds get to live on their own in Japan, because unless I'm mistaken you have to be either 15 or 16 before you can do that?
  13. But she's literally drawn nearly the same as Sonic. At that point all they would be selling you is just a number that you could easily make up for any character at that point. So, most anime in general I guess.
  14. Actually I don't believe they ever gave Amy's age back in the classic days. It wasn't really until Sonic Adventure when every character had a profile that stated their age at that time (I think Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles were the only ones with any sort of facts/profile thing before Adventure). The only time an age was placed on her back then was in the Archie comic series where she indeed was the same age as Tails, 8, before an item in the story was used to artificially age her body 4 years (again, still pretty developed for a 12 year old, but whatevs). As soon as she was officially inducted into the Freedom Fighters as a full-on member, her age was pretty much never brought up, referenced, or even relevant again, and that trend has carried on into the post-reboot era of the comics. Well if that's the case and I shouldn't be taking the age thing seriously, then why can't I just ignore any un-updated profile and assume all the cast members are meant to be 1 year older than their bios originally said? Kind of weird to suggest I should disregard the meaningless trivia and then suggest that I should believe the trivia over the franchise's one reference of a character getting older until the meaningless trivia agrees with it.
