Takara also developed a Choro Q game for GC, which might explain the mention of it earlier. I don't suppose we know if Sega outsourced Mega Collection development at all?

Well those in IRC know this, but if you look in one of the files, you can find GC and PS2 button images. SO I'm guessing it's this game here:

If that's a PS2 port, that would make sense...

Seems like the only logical reason. It does say "Compiled under the Supervision of Sonic Team" instead of "Compiled by Sonic Team".

When they make prototypes on genesis carts (or WHEN they did) they would write over old prototypes of other games right? Is it possible that's what happened here with the weird images?

Probably not, no. I believe NR discs are write-once, not rewriteable.

Yea. Disks are cheap enough that I can't imagine them worrying about it. They most likely just wrote a new disk when needed.

Looks like we would have got the JP Version of Sonic CD had it been in the SMC....maybe. Or the regional thing with the music was why it was delayed in the first place.

I thought we knew from when Pach was a beta tester that the reason they didn't put in Sonic CD was because Sega were too shit to code a decent Mega CD emulator?

You guys realise Saz already made an article on the whole Sonic the Movie being in SMC right? Saz exposed this quite a while ago.

Yeah, I thought I had seen this already before. Either way, still cool to see it.

There's a batch file in the sonic/test002 directory, called mk.bat.

@echo off
@copy /B /Y /Z %EXJ2_NETWORK_DRIVE%\eSTD.es
es2es -I %1 -o ____tmp.es -noa
esconvGC ____tmp.es %2 %3
@del ____tmp.es
@del eSTD.es


I'm ripping the Sonic CD manual from this game, and will post it if anyone is interested.

You mean this manual?

Why yes, exactly that. :o

Guess I can delete it then, those rips are like 4 megs per page.

QUOTE (Tanks @ Feb 26 2008, 06:44 PM) [post="181591"]Posted Image

Remember this image? I found it in the current ISO. It was found in the final game too I believe. What I don't believe is that these extra images were found with it. Check them out with the link below:

This really isn't that big actually. It just shows what made up the image itself...[/quote]

Hey, that says Monster's Lair was in mega collections.

Monster's lair was never in mega collection, was it?

No, it definitely wasn't. I'm fairly sure it was neither in the original or plus version. It would probably have been a more welcome addition than 'The Ooze'.

Quick answers:

the sonic OVA was in there, but it was yanked.
That menu shows an old lineup (The lineup went through many revisions)
And finally Sonic CD was yanked because sega cd emulation at the time had JUST started, and they couldn't code or buy code in time.
