I'm really looking forward to these Sonic prototypes, especially the Sonic 2 ones...

It will be interesting to see if any of the Sonic 2 prototypes have the working Hidden Palace Zone with spin-tubes, a more complete beta-style Casino Night Zone, and if Wood Zone was ever worked on further since the Wai Beta ^.^

Also, I am really curious as to whether any of the Sonic 3 protos have a different level order, like Flying Battery coming after Carnival Night, as in the Sonic 3 level select o.O

Unfortunately, I will be working Saturday night 20:00~2:00, so I will miss the prototypes until Sunday morning... -.-

To answer a few questions:

- I will help with seeding the torrent. I have a 100 Mbps line, so the torrent shouldn't get too slow.

- The ROMs are in split EPROM format, intended for use with an EPROM burner. They need to be interleaved and recombined in order to produce a working ROM image. I'm not sure if there's any actual source code on the discs.

There is NO source code on the discs whatsoever. I feel this needs to be clarified.

Well, we won't know THAT until we start analyzing the ROMs. =)

Just to note, the top of the FAQ now has a time of the most recent update. I added info from Gerbil's and Tweaker's posts.

Could you also change the title to reflect that, please? Makes it less of a bother to check.

Okay torrents are fine, but I don't plan on downloading ALL the games. I only really want the Sonic prototypes.

We'll likely be mirroring the Sonic prototypes on Retro. Don't worry about it.

You can also just select which files you would want to download with your bittorrent client.

Will the original split files (or just a CD image) be released as well? It could be interesting to preserve them as they were stored originally, including the creation date for each file, original naming, folder structure for the backups, etc.



And also for those who might want to burn these in EPROMS, so they don't have to split them again.

I believe he said a full dir list of the cds will be released at some point in the future, but not the original cd images as they contain confidential info that could reveal his source (I think...)

I'm sure a lot of people are going to leech-and-go on this, so I plan on seeding as long as possible after the download.

I strongly encourage everyone else to do the same (probably a given for most of you, but just as a general reminder)

I will, and on my new computer, Bittorrent doesn't slow down the net any, so seeding will not be a prob. how soon after the initial torrent should we look by here for some specific direct downloads. I will get the torrent on sunday, but like others, I will be on the road saturday, so I will be using my psp for the initial release, and to my best knowledge, there isn't a bittorrent client for psp
