It is crazy. It has been a long while, but from what I have seen from the dev, Sora_yx. From what I got told. The Sonic Adventure DX randomizer has got reworked and rebuild from the ground up. And I started watching hdn_draxirch stream the new build of Sonic Adventure DX randomizer or SADX rando. It is an enjoyable experience to behold.
Watching how far Sora_yx and his team have come with SADX mods, to say it is wondrous, is an understatement. They managed to turn this game into something completely new. I have seen mods that changed the skin of the models. But now, we are at a point where the game is receiving mods that import levels, adjust levels, or completely overhaul SADX to a point where it is something new.
I have not tried any of the new versions of the mods. The mods being critical mode for sonic adventure and sadx rando. I used to speedrun SADX rando on my old pc before it broke down, and since then, I have not touched or reinstalled SADX rando, as I had seen everything there was to offer.
May 11th. Was a day I dread the most since it is one day where leading up to May 11th, I lose control of my emotions in the since I get very depressed or sad or angry but after that happens. I somewhat go back to normal, after the meltdown. :P
But on to my Birthday. Got a lot of happy Birthday wishes from friends and associates, a cool gift but more on that later. And did a fun 8 Hour stream and did a lot of stuff.
It has been a while since I streamed or for that matter played SADX Randomizer since I got back into Elsword but that’s because I got so much done, I kinda forgot about SADX in general, to be fair.
So, since I am cooking at the moment, I can do a SADX randomizer stream and try to get a new personal best or find bugs. And writing this, I forgot to make the harder bosses post to give to sora for crit mode. Probably too late to send it to him
Oh well, I will still make it anyway and post it to my stream twitter for Sora to see. Since that twitter is G rated to PG rated, and he can see it there. :P
Alright. I made some post on this Sonic Adventure DX mod or rather two posts but never done a full on “review” since this mod is still a work in progress (W.I.P) Or early access would be a better term? It’s a public mod but new versions are in the works for beta testers
So, as stated, Sonic Adventure DX Randomizer is a mod created by Sora_yxow that randomizes stages, voices, music, characters (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Gamma, Big, Super Sonic, and Metal Sonic), bosses, mini games, and more.
With that in mind. Everything is random. You can have the normal stages in the base game with the randomizer stages edited for the mod, and if you wish, you can edit the seed to have custom runs which is cool.
So, Sonic Adventure DX Randomizer 2.0 (SADX Rando 2.0) by Sora_yxow is a blast, I had some fun moments in the mod and even did a run of the mod which you can find here. https://www.speedrun.com/sadxrando/run/y4147gny I am still new to speedrunning sadx randomizer or just SADX in general.. ^^’
Why am I talking about SADX Rando 2.0? Well, not too long ago that SADX Rando 2.1 came out with bug fixes and new features. 2.1 is a real game changer coming from 2.0 to 2.1
I had some silly moments I highlighted during my stream which I plan on sharing with you all. :3 Silly moments or bugs
When this mod first came out. I was not to crazy about it since during this time I seen the Sonic Adventure 2 Battle randomizer and back then SADX randomizer was bare bones which felt like a cheat code to switch characters.
I was not too crazy about sadx randomizer after seeing SA2B randomizer and not being too blown away and sadx at release was neat but didn’t pull me in but however.. overtime these mods, SADX randomizer in particular because this was a game I spent a month on learning the in’s and out’s of it
Trying out SADX randomizer on stream. Man, this mod has seen very big changes. changes that make the mod worth playing. This mod community is getting to a point where they can make their own game out of SADX.
Just a blog update. I been asked a interesting question. The question being do I want to speedrun any other character in SADX or put the same amount of time into a another character like I did for Sonic?
And to be honest, I was done with SADX. After Sonic’s story. I was done with the game in general and seeing the mini revival of SADX races / speedruns in my friend group is odd…
So, I said I wanted to learn Knuckles or Amy… I really need to say how I feel on these matters, rather then saying yes in the moment. Not sure why it is so hard to say “No”. But anywho. I will give this some thought but I’m not going to promise anything but will think about it.
I speedran / raced knuckles centurion in SADX. Not fond of it. Hypersonic7701 did mention doing a half hour knuckles centurion and kinda iffy on the idea and again, no promises on doing this thing or not. And I speedran Amy as well before.
It’s interesting to get a question out of the blue but at the same time, it’s kinda funny because I don’t know what provoked this question other then wanting me to speedrun other characters.
It’s silly because I started doing Sonic speedruns to say “I do or did speedrun this game” but then it became a somewhat “serious” speedrun that I placed in all my energy and then some into this game. But by doing that. My current view on SADX was ruined, although, I never thought highly of the game to begin with.
The Sonic story speedrun was the final nail in the coffin for me and I have not touched SADX since I got my Sonic story PB. It’s funny that I’m being asked to play SADX again to run other characters but I really don’t want to play it anymore. The more I see of SADX, the less I want to run it. But before I end this blog post. I will end on this note.
But I will give this some thought but than likely I will turn down the offer after thinking about it. I did what I wanted to do in SADX in the times I played or speedran it. Sonic Adventure DX has nothing I want. My friends find something in it that I do not or they have a secondary motive.
On that same note, SA2B falls into same boat as SADX. Getting real sick of speedrunning Sonic games, I don’t bother voicing my issues as they fall on deaf ears. If you speedrun one Sonic game, you speedran them all in that sense. That’s what it feels like to me.
That’s all I wanted to say. Later people. This was a fun post to write.
So here are the results of my work for today’s stream. I will be going over some highlights. Going over the full stream would be a bit much
I “had” a first chance at PB, given there was a lot of mistakes. The run died to the second to last hit on Egg Viper, cause I wanted to be fancy but that cost me the run.
The second be run died on Twinkle Park But this was the last run of the day.
I learned some new things, which is good but it means the run will be tighter with this new Info. I have to learn to deal with Twinkle Park Act 2, Red MTN act 1 spring, Sky chase Act 2, Egg Viper. After that, I should be able to pb, if Chaos 4 is good. :V
But on the plus side. My old run was verified by Sora. :P
Alright, so It’s time I start sharing more stuff on my blog, like I did on Tumblr. So I have been running or learning Sonic Adventure DX for some unknown reason. I don’t know.
To get to my point. I plan on streaming SADX or Sonic Adventure DX till I can get a good time that is sub 35 or lower. Until I get time of 35 or lower, I will keep doing streams focused on SADX
So if you wanna watch me run SADX for the luls or watch the runs. I will be doing the runs when I get time (I will post a link when I go live.) but you can watch my streams or vods at https://www.twitch.tv/chaosony Once I get the personal best (PB) that I want, I will be done.
Now that my PB is not bad, I can’t afford to make mistakes in the run as each one is a auto reset since once I get behind in my splits, change for pb is gone.
The only areas I can afford to make mistakes in is Casinopolis and twinkle Park Since I would be ahead. A death in Act 2 of Twinkle Park would end the run.
But other then that, I will be aiming for the lowest Time that I can get, if everything goes well. If I can pull that off, I will be done with SADX cause I know I did my best. :3
Saime did suggest that I should run Sonic 06′ It would be a simple run since A) I have the PS3 version and that says a lot. And B) I don’t plan on learning a new game. Sonic Adventure DX was the lucky one to catch my attention at the start of this year. I’m not sure about Sonic 06′
Ah, Twitter. Something I wanted to talk about or mention a bit. Let’s start as I want to talk about 2 features on Twitter.
I want to talk or rant about these features, so let’s start. I’m Sonik the edge-lord and hope you enjoy this post or like it.
This may be a short post.
So Twitter is a magical place. Full of life and opinions and so much. And Facebook, on the other hand, is ummm. Think of Facebook as a site where Parents go there to talk about nothing really.
Here, this clip sums up Facebook well. If you love and/or like Facebook, more power to you. To me, it’s not very important to me.
