Zone Clear Times

A Mod for Sonic 3 A.I.R

Updates

v1.1.1 - Minor Bugfix update 8d
  • BugFix Fixed a bug that caused the times menu to appear green
  • BugFix Renamed the internal name of the default save slot setting
Due to the bug fix regarding the default save slot setting, you might have to re-configure the option with the latest version.
V1.1 - The 20.07.24.0 Update 15d BugFix Optimization Removal

Featuring the First Full-Fledged Custom Menu!

This mod saves your times after you clear a zone, complete with a custom menu to view them! It also saves your best No Save mode times for each character combination, acting as a sort of gauntlet mode. It's also compatible with Sprite and Music mods!

CHANGES:
  • Your times are now saved after you clear a zone.
  • A brand-new menu has been added to data select so that you can view your times (the first of its kind!)
  • The Final Boss always restarts the time when you enter it (your Final Boss time is added to your DEZ2 time)


NOTES:
  • This mod makes use of the persistentdata.bin file in the Sonic 3 AIR save data folder. If you modify or remove this file (such as when editing save files), you risk LOSING YOUR SAVED TIMES forever.
  • This mod was not designed with layout changes in mind, and as such some oddities may occur.
  • The mod's settings can be modified using the in-game mod menu as of V1.1!

Announcement

I'm in the process of updating Separate Super/Hyper Themes to the latest version of AIR and I'd like to know about some songs that would be good for Super/Hyper Tails/Knux! If you've got any ideas, comment 'em on the mod's page or DM me on GameBanana or Discord. Also, Zone Clear Times! - DaKingofCheckerz

Development Info

Notes
This mod took several weeks of development and planning. It required learning a lot about how the Genesis' VDP works and a lot of RAM manipulation. The Zone Times menu was adapted from the level select menu, and needed tweaks to get it to function properly (such as rendering sprites, and loading the Characters' palettes on initialization).

For any developers that want to make sure their mods are compatible here's some info:
  • This mod uses 0x81fff6 ~ 0x8200A6 in shared memory as of v1.0 (this will likely be adjusted in the future as more settings/features are added)
  • Most of the changes this mod makes should be compatible with other mods with the exception of the Data Select screen. Some of the changes in there cannot function with other mods as they're written. You can look at the scripts to find out what's been changed.
