What the above might show is that they were still considering three acts per zone..

EHZ 1 and 2. blank blank.
WZ 1 and 2. blank blank.
MZ 1, 2 and 3. blank.
blank blank. HTZ 1 and 2.
HPZ 1 and 2. blank blank.

Everything seems to make sense in this prototype, doesn't look like a hoax.


Plus, I don't think drx would do such a thing.

Yeah, I honestly don't believe its a hoax. I was just kinda there, while we were talking. And even then, we all agreed that we aren't accusing it of being a hoax, just neutrally examining evidence for the sake of it.

I feel pretty safe saying that drx would never rip thousands of dollars off people for a hoax.

I say it's probably real. The case label and the fact that it's probably equal to the Nick Arcade proto instead of something later like we expected are good.

I think if drx was trying to make a hoax of this, he would:
Make something that looks later than the wai proto.
Use the right level names on the level select.
Have all of the levels listed in the magazine.

Sure there's a concern about the sonic X-treme hoax, but wasn't that for April Fools?
Hasn't everything else he released been real?

drx makes one wonderful contribution after another, and now you're saying that he may have fooled us? I can understand a suspicion (sp?) or two, but this is just fucking low.

If this is a hoax, then it's a damned good one. While I'm no hacker myself, I understand the degree of difficulty involved in making such an intricate ROM. There are easier hoaxes to make, folks.

So... does that mean WS is accessible in a similar way to HPZ (via Game Genie) in Sonic 2? Is it restorable in the same way as HPZ?

Yes, and it has been many, many times. =P

Any level is restorable, really.

It's far too elaborate to be a hoax. I don't think the amount of work involved in creating a hack like this would be worth $1500 either.

With his focus on school, I doubt drx had the time to string this together.
Plus, he's been hanging out with the right crowd. Of course, it's entirely possible that he's spent a year or more building up his image off this board and "dumping" other fake betas just to get money from people. But that's too inconvenient and unlikely in comparison to the non-conspiracy route.

I'm looking it on a personal level rather than a technical level. It is pretty cool that folks consider it a possible that drx has that much cunning.
