Sonic Generations Megathread II WORD ON THE STREET: IT CAN'T BE BEAT
Posted 26 November 2011 - 12:15 PM
I fucking love this game. It just is NOT getting old. I mean, I'm gonna give it a year or so before I truly say this, but right now, to me, this game is better than Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Which is crazy, because nothing else has ever even come CLOSE.
I disagree, but it's a damn close second. Fuck it usurped Sonic 2 from the number 2 spot after all these years and that in itself is impressive.

Wow, that song is perfect for that. It aligns so well it's weird.
By the way, is there still no 3DS soundtrack rip? The wait to hear the Biolizard song is tearing me apart. I'm not sure how hard it is to rip 3DS music, but the Mario Land one is ripped so it can't be impossible.

Which makes me think, was this 2011 mix of sonic boom supposed to be the vocal for this game but some reason or another decided not to use it?
That is just soo weird that it aligns soo well with the final boss. anyway to make that song a loopable adx so we can use it for the final boss battle?
The statue room is called the model room in the 3DS version. also, I've never seen that concept art of blaze and marine before. wonder whats else?!
ARG why can't we extract assets from 3DS games?! its not fair...

'Jim said even if there was a rom to extract from, theres no tools that work for 3ds roms and therefore no way to crack the rom open and obtain its assets.
The 3ds has every hacker beat. looks like nintendo finally won.
EDIT: Exact words. it was a convo in the Resources thread before it turned into a "lets talk about models" thread:
Next Retro Project: Creating the 3DS dumping scene by dumping Sonic Generations 3DS to get the ripped songs.
I have faith in you, guys.
^This, seriously! I know the 3DS is virtually unhackable and the flashcart scene hasn't broke the secret code to make 3DS flashcarts work yet but this shouldn't stop the rom dumpers.
There's no problem dumping games, we just have no method of extracting the files from the dumps.

Anyway. I ripped the Special Stage music from Generations 3DS, to the best of my ability with as few sound effects as possible (the only one in there is the chaos emerald glow sound at the very beginning) It cuts off at about 1:45 because the longest special stage I have unlocked is the Green Hill one. I might redo it later with a longer special stage to try to get the full song. Anyway, here's the download.
And here's a YouTube upload:

...Ugh,I guess I screwed it up. I don't really have time to fix it right now, though... I thought it'd be alright since I could hear it loudly on my TV with the volume at its usual low level, but I guess I was wrong.
EDIT: I'm checking it on my other devices and it doesn't seem so quiet... It's certainly just fine on my iPod and phone, at least.

This is honestly the only track I care about and it is NOWHERE. Would do it myself but I don't have the equippment. Or the game.
