The Sonic 2 Special Stage Editor is a cross-platform program, designed by flamewing, which can edit the special stages from the Genesis version of Sonic 2. It is the first known program able to do so in over a decade (unlike editors for Sonic 1 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles special stages, which are quite common), and it has been received very well because of this.
|| I have been bitching about this for a DECADE.
You have made my dreams.
It doesn't edit the Sonic 2 ROM
in itself, as it is meant to be used with a split disassembly
This Sonic 2 Special Stage Editor allows the user to edit:
- the object placement (rings, bombs)
- how the special stage twists and turns (within Sonic 2 engine constraints)
- how long each special stage is
- how many special stages there are in the files
It does not allow to edit:
- ring requirements
Which should still be edited by hand in a disassembly. Likewise, if the user wants to have more than 7 special stages, modifications of the disassembly are required in order to get the new stages from the eighth onwards to work.
