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.


I'm a bit late to the party, but are the JPEG artifacts on CulT's version also on the original manual scanned into SMC? If there are clearer originals, I'll gladly take them.

What the fuck.

And I didn't convert anything, it was in MAX format already on the GCM.

Download the folder here.

Edit: In Start.dol, there are more debug/source code file name references for both Choro Q and the Genesis emulator used for the games.

I should mention I put all this into the wikipedia. It's not much really.

Deespence, I don't want to sound pedantic but I noticed you saying this earlier and I just thought I'd clear things up. "Wikipedia" is the name of a particular website, which as far as I can tell you didn't add this information to. "Wiki" is the generic term. Sorry to nitpick!

Wow, only 20 posts and your already an Oldbie. I wish I could move up my status as fast as you.

How is that relevant to what she said at all?

It's relevant to the person, but not really relevant to the content of their message. But anyway, if she wants me to call it Retropedia, or whatever, she can just tell me.

I guess it's not a big deal, but I genuinely did misunderstand what you meant at first because I interpreted you as using Wikipedia as the proper name.

As for my oldbie status, it's not for my posts on this board. I used to be a member of other Sonic boards and sort of wandered off five years ago. When I joined here when drx was going to be releasing these new protos, I guess someone recognized me when I mentioned my old username in the comments field after the test.

Jesus you are dumb. Just call it what it is a wiki. Wikipedia is a completely different site, and calling it Retropedia is just stupid.

On topic:

Nice find there evilham, it is weird that it was already in MAX format.

Sorry, but I don't quite understand what the significance is of that picture. Can somebody explain?

He found the model for the lost menu screen just sitting in the GCM as a MAX file.

Picture for reference to old menu style:

EDIT: refer to Bill's image below, I didn't realize you couldn't hotlink images from Cult.

Hotlinking from the CulT doesn't work, here's a re-host:

"monsutaa rea" would probably be Monster Lair, the arcade/MD shooter game in the Wonderboy series. I haven't played Sonic Mega Collection, but I guess they left it off? They did release a Monster World compilation last year, though.

According to the Wiki: http://info.sonicret...Mega_Collection

Monster Lair is not on any version of SMC.
