Demo 3 will be released this summer (unless something happens to delay mod progress). The Alternate Soundtrack is delayed until after the mod is complete. There will be more original tracks by me. With all that out of the way, Here's what's new in Demo 3 of Chaotix Mania.
TECHNO TOWER & ISOLATED ISLAND (WIP)
Isolated Island is being worked on by Star Warrior
and is halfway complete. More info will be shown in the future.
Techno Tower is being worked on by NeoExperiences
and is progressing well.
The boss has been changed to match the boss from the source game and the encore palette is complete. All the tiles are complete and level design concepts are being worked on.
ALTERED PINBALL STAGE!
The Pinball stage has been altered to be somewhat original, without changing the layout too much. Mainly just a color change with some new sprites from the Combi Catcher in Knuckles Chaotix. The music is also replaced with a music track from a 32X game, which will be revealed soon.
ALTERED UFO SPECIAL STAGES!Gameplay Video
The UFO Special Stages has been altered to look like the Special Stages from Knuckles Chaotix. The background has been changed in every special stage and the Chaos Emerald model now looks like the Chaos Ring from Knuckles Chaotix. Big Thanks to The Vagabond
for spending the time to change the background and the model!
NEW LEVEL SELECT!
The Level Select now has two new options: Encore Mode & Options.
The Encore Mode button lets you play Amazing Arena, Techno Tower, Speed Slider, Botanic Base, & Marina Madness in their Evening/Night palettes that were seen in the Teaser images from the first demo.
The Options, you guessed it, brings you to the regular mania options (Being one of the few, if not the only mod allowing you to access the options without the limited dev menu options). There's all the standard buttons: Video, Sound, Controls & Language but there's a new button: Extras.
This button brings you to the Extras Menu. Allowing you to play Mean Bean Machine (1p vs. CPU or 1p vs. 2p), play Blue Spheres Levels, and go back to the Level Select.
New Title Cards
New Title Cards for Mania Mode & Encore Mode. The Mania Title Card is supposed to look like the Title Card from Knuckles Chaotix, while the Encore Title Card is a custom reverse color scheme.
A Mighty New Ability
Thanks to CodenameGamma
, Mighty has his Wall Kick from Knuckles Chaotix. This works in all levels (Mania Mode & Encore Mode).
Will You Continue?
New Continue screens for Sonic and Knuckles. The track, Decision from Knuckles Chaotix is over the Continue music.
New Title Screen Sonic
Sonic palette has been changed to match his palette in-game. Thanks Flare/Galaxy
for changing it!
New Music Trackshttps://youtu.be/1Si7eU4X2-8
I recently revealed on my Youtube channel the new Super Theme for Chaotix Mania that will not be in the Alt. Soundtrack. Any tracks that are not from Knuckles Chaotix are either a “Chaotix” related track in the Knuckles Chaotix Soundfont (like the Super Theme) or a track from a 32X Game in the Knuckles Chaotix Soundfont (like the Pinball Theme). So stayed tuned!
