I have givin Knuckles in Sonic 2 it's own section in the MegaDrive games and i have some more unmade games to add. The most unknown about one is tricky though.. Sonic Adventure!<br />It was oringally a Saturn game. But pretty early on the decided not to have it on the Saturn and it went to the Dreamcast. Information seams to hint the following facts and this is bascily all i got so far:<br />->The game wasn't to be Neo, Sonic still had his correct classic Look. Early Beta's of even the Dreamcast one shows these Saturn Models.<br />-> No Chaos. The Water Beast Chaos was made for the Dreamcast version to show off what the Saturn couldn't do.<br />-> No Chao's. The A-Life Chao mini-games were created for the Dreamcast version. I would have guess that with the above fact, the Story wouldn't have used this bits either<br />-> NOT 6 playable Characters. It is highly unlikey that 6 Playable characters would have been in the game. Big was 100% Dreamcast (showing off the 'fishing' game style) and it is believed E-102 and Amy was also the same. Either the game was oringally just going to be Sonic, or just Sonic, Tails and Knuckles.<br /><br />any known shots from the Saturn version? Maybe 1 but alot of ones showing the Saturn Models are from the Dreamcast version.. Oh well.. I'll keep you up to date on what i find.
Not as big as the Last Merchandise update BUT thanks to a gal called 'SnowCat' (Hi ^_^), I have updated the information on the set of 4 Sonic figures that i didn't know what they came from. They were from Christmas Crackers!<br />Thanks again SnowCat!
I have deleted the Sonic R ending Images from the Gallery and uploaded better ones.. some you won't notice are much better but still they are!<br />Why? This new ones are Game Perfect. This means they are Ripped from the Game Engine itself. Now, alot of games don't render the graphics quite as good as the files have them for a number of reasons. Either way, this are taken from the very game files so they are the best there is! I have also added the Complete Ending Image which was used as the beta Title Screen and seen in early Promo Art. I have also uploaded the title screen. This doesn't have the Logo because that was rendered on as 3D. Looks better without the Logo because it's cleaner..
Added a remove/change feature for Sonic 3 (not quite sure what to call it..)<br />also corrected a small mistake and expanded on Notes for SatAM Episode 'Fed Up with Antione/ Ghost Bustered'. A typing mistake said Owen Fitzgerald died 2 years before he was born. I expanded the note to explain who he was to people that don't know.
Added a couple of new 'Removed' bits. Two for Knuckles Chaotix and one for Sonic R. Basicly, the Sonic R one is a completey different Title screen and the Chaotix ones are a different intro/sega screen and a different name for the Chaos Rings
88 Game Gear Game Genie Codes added This are for Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Sonic Chaos. There are probbly a few more i didn't put in there for lives before they got up to 99 lives and the codes are for 1 life, 2 lives etc. You should be able to see the pattern needed to fill in the gaps if you need to. One Problem is i don't have a Game Gear Game Genie Cart nor do i have an Emulator that supports them so am a little stuck when it comes to testing some of these codes so if you know that really don't work or i got the wrong area code, let me know.
Added 4 Sprites. each Six frames and they are the Flickies as seen in Sonic R. Shame they only have back frames but they did add a nice feel to the level of Resort Island.. huh? you didn't notice? Then play the game again!
Added a new section for Merchandise for Puzzles which are no-longer classed under 'Games' which they used to be. Also added a puzzle.<br /><br />In the game section, added a couple of images and note of items to Come
well.. i have been working on this for a couple of days and it is well about time..<br /><br />Get this, about 138 New Merchandise Items have been added to the Merchandise Section! Isn't that good? boy, i wish i could get just half of what is there now.. There are a few more items i gotta add and some which aren't Merchandise in so much they they should go in the books or Games Section. Well.. This is a good start to this week anyway. Enjoy! And Updated information on one Item. When i saw the photos, it was being stoled as a believed Money box which was a bit ify.. I have comfirmed it as being a Bubble Blower So i have updated that information.
