Hey, does anyone remember I had once posted a Sonic game engine here abou a month or two ago? Well I scrapped it and started writing it from scratch and the time and effort into doing so was worth it, as I now have a completely new (and totally superiour) engine for Chaos Calibur (the name for my Sonic fangame)

Download here: http://www.powow.com/syphonflare/Beta%20Build%205.zip
(Please do not criticize because this isnt an original game, but please take five minutes to try the engine test out, you'll see it isnt like most crappy fangames...)

Controls are:
Arrows: Move
Shift Key: Jump
Control Key (held): Cling onto grinding rails

You should figure how to do the spindash and air-jump (double jump) moves so I'll leave you to it. Oh, and the 1, 2 and 3 keys toggle display modes.. try out the new engine and please leave your comments and feedback!

You did it from scratch? The original engine was sweet anyway. Well, I'm downloading it, let's see what it's like now.

It is a very nice engine, but still, I think the old one had more like the original Sonic feel to it. Are the graphics original or ripped, cos I don't recognise them from any game, and they're pretty nice.

The main reason I did my engine from scratch was because my previous engine was lacking a few important factors: slopes, loops and running around walls and ceilings at high speeds.. with that said, I really had to scrap my older engine which didnt even handle slopes let alone loops (it was all flat ground)

ive kept trying to make a decent sonic engine with loops wall running and the lot.
ive always had to resort to having loads of detectors around the walls which isnt a good idea in tgf.
but i think i can do it with detectors around the character instead of the walls.
and a hexagon shaped main detector instead of a circle.

this engine looks like a similar engine to the one clwe used in sonic diy

yeah, still very nice. i imagine the loops can be done without detectors, andy, probably using some spiffy maths at some point, but to be honest i wouldn't know how to do it.

The loop method in my game is done using trigenometry, and as it requires decimal numbers to carry out the work to calculate the current angles, this kinda stuff cant be done properly in TGF unfortunately

i think its possible in tgf but not without some exteme amount of effort.

good work though its good to see some really good sonic fangames appearing at last.

nice engine there. The turbo speedy things seem a bit weird though. They don't really make you go much faster.

Are you trying to prove that old topics can still be worth reviving? Cause it's not a real good attempt.

If you are genuinely looking for a good sonic engine you can't go wrong with the Sonic worlds engine. For MMF2 only.

Sonic Worlds engine is rather good, but it has one big drawback. Everyone uses it now, in STH fan gaming, and it just makes people spew out the endless same stuff. -_-.

Although we do get some top nouch games like Sonic XG, Nexus, Mayhem ect ect in the works.
