It's cute to see there's still so many folks out there who don't know about all this. It should go without saying, but it's pretty easy to take this stuff for granted after 10 years!

Should've dropped a Dust Hill screenshot somewhere to really fuck the server over.

You ain't kidding... it's been more than 10 years since I was all amazed by this as well, I remember one of my first posts was a Genocide City "theory" that was more just my imagination running wild with an unsubstantiated rumor of someone claiming they played it.

Sometimes I still think of making my own obviously wrong interpretation of the zone...

But yeah, shoulda blown their minds with the off center Dust Hill screenie.

Do any of their other videos credit the respective sites more directly than "logo on the first pic"?

Nope.

Why get wound up over it? If you're a Sonic fan, you know about this site to some capacity (be it "that place with all the hacks" or "that site with the idiotic members who won't shut up about Sonic 4.")

Besides, if it bugs you that much, just plug the site in the comments.

Also, no, the site slowdown today had nothing to do with traffic. And no, it wasn't a really lazy April Fool's joke. It was some other components being stupid.

What bothers me the most about that video is the fact that they're citing all these wiki articles, yet they call Yuji Naka "Sonic's creator," hurdur. Also a little off-topic, but the guy who narrates those videos needs to express himself instead of just reading out the lines. It's like he's paid to be devoid of any and all emotion.

It's really more of a professionalism thing.
Let's just say that if they were publishing this in a book, it would be considered plagiarism. Just saiyan.

And how would you enforce that considering the wiki has been built from hundreds of people that have submitted tools and knowledge for free. Also it would be a bit hypocritical to claim plagiarism when this site primary function is hacking copyrighted material and distributing hacks.

Professionalism my arse. That kind of thinking makes you sound like a Sony lawyer.

A book being published and a video series online are quite different.

Books are usually sold for profit, meaning they'd be making money, with no credit to us. This isn't really a pay-for thing as it is a guy just doing an online video series of various gaming myths. It's as innocuous as a YouTube video, only with nicely done effects instead of generic colored screen with grotesque font styles and colors.

Trust me, I get what you're saying with professionalism, but... this is far from professional and really isn't worth getting wound up over. We're not in THAT desperate a need for getting our name around anymore, even if it's just the principle of the matter.

Way to be 10+ years late to the party!


Comments like these were rather sickening:

QUOTE
I can always appreciate good investigative work. Well done GT.


QUOTE
WOW holy shit! that was something new! Great job GT you out did yourself. seriously wow


and then there's information like this that GT left out/could have been more clear with:
QUOTE
Great!!! but there's something I don't understand, if the level was shown fully playable, howcome it didn't make it into the final release?

They ran out of time to finish what they wanted the level to do. Wasn't there an issue with raising the water level and having the Y-value loop back to the bottom of the screen? Maybe that's just an old theory, idk.



And then there are comments like these that can be easily reconciled. We need to point them to Retro:

QUOTE
I still have my Genesis attached to my HD tv and a copy of Sonic 2, but sadly no Genesis Game Genie to test this out.

This reminds me of when news channels first started trying to integrate the internet into their broadcasts, it usually just consisted of an anchor reading verbatim off of a computer screen.

Comments kind of remind me of being a newb to the whole cut game content scene. Way back in 1999, 2000 with Area 51 and various Zelda sites (that later reconciled to Zelda Coalition, now dead).

I spend my time at TRCF nowadays, drooling. I welcome all newbs who come here, too. Fresh meat. v.png smile.png

We all were newbs once, right?

This video reminds me of when we had almost no information on the subject. Nostalgia time!
