Another fun fact about SA2: every memory allocation/deallocation call has the source file path and line number as parameters. Some examples from various functions (not official names):
LoadSonic: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\sonic\\sonic.c", 1611
LoadShadow: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\sonic\\sonic.c", 1916
LoadKnuckles: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\knuckles\\knuckles.c", 1809
LoadRouge: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\knuckles\\knuckles.c", 1969
LoadTails: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\miles\\miles.c", 430
LoadEggman: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\eggman\\eggman.c", 434
LoadMechEggman: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\ewalker\\ewalker.c", 1270
LoadMechTails: "..\\..\\src\\figure\\ewalker\\ewalker.c", 1418
LoadSuperSonic: "..\\..\\src\\BossLast2\\supersonic.c", 599
LoadSuperShadow: "..\\..\\src\\BossLast2\\supersonic.c", 699
SetPhysicsParamsAndGiveUpgrades: "..\\..\\src\\player.c", 826
InitCollision: "..\\..\\src\\c_colli.c", 814
LoadCharTextures: "..\\..\\src\\texture.c", 260
PlayMusic: "..\\..\\src\\adx.c", 858

I believe Tails' absence was talked about in an issue of the UK's Official Dreamcast Magazine, because that's where I first heard it back in 2001(?). I think the "Nails the Bat" thing might have been mentioned at some point too.


We don't have scans.


I very much wish we did.

We've had this discussion about SA2 before:
http://forums.sonicr...pic=31426&st=45

Basically it seems UK Dreamcast magazine mentioned that Tails wasn't suppose to be in. They mention as part of an interview with Yuji Naka, but they actually give Naka's exact comments, so they might have interpreted it. That seems to be the only source though, so it's a little shaky.

The best part about this is that scans were provided.

And nobody put them on the wiki.

And now the links are dead.



So this whole thing could have been averted.

I can't type. I meant to say: "They mention as part of an interview with Yuji Naka, but they don't actually give Naka's exact comments, so they might have interpreted it." Just to clarify, the bit about Tails being in it isn't attributed to Naka.

Okay, so I had absolutely no idea where to put this, and I decided on here because it's relatively Sonic related.

The Smash Ultimate Dojo has been rolling out new music arrangements over time. We don't have too many yet, but there are two that caught my eye. A Mega Man 4 medley by Jun Senoue (which sounds extremely Adventure era to me) and a Splatoon arangement by Tomoya Ohtani. Considering neither of them made new arrangements for Smash 4 (as far as I can tell with a quick search, but I may be wrong), this is exciting to see. I'm not expecting too much, but this is certainly one way to make me more excited about Smash Ultimate.

Hey Retro, how good are your eyes?

This is Beep! MegaDrive acknowledging that Sonic & Knuckles exists. They don't have a screenshot yet, so they've borrowed one from Sonic 3.



I suspect this might be a false alarm but is Knuckles using the right palette? There's a lot of contrast in the image, but as soon as I saw this I was reminded of that old Sonic 1 hack where Knuckles' reds were borrowed from Sonic's shoes.


(and yes that is a Ristar prototype below - there is hoards of stuff in these scans)
