@Scarred Sun Thanks! It's even better now than back in the day, as it works with Google Translate!

You wouldn't happen to have the Japanese Sonic Shuffle site, would you? That was a bit of a special case, as it had a website, but it wasn't actually accessed in game.

Just as a little status update, the auto redirection of SA2 has been mostly fixed, simply hit the L Trigger and hit go to home PG and it should work. The direct link is still being worked on as it the updates to SA1

have I mentioned that I love you

For real though, this is great. My Dreamcast isn't set up to connect to the internet at this point (and I have like two working GD-ROMs left, neither of which are SA1 or 2 :argh: ), but if it was I'd totally use this.

Il pass that on to the Team :D

would totally if possible get a Dreampi, if you build it yourself it only like 40 bucks and works with 17 (soon to be 18) games to play online.

This also in theory works on emulators. If you save online file in sa1 and hope onto a bba supported browser you could participate the rankings that way.

The site is a little broken right now as the latest update kinda blew it up lol

Hey, I remember that. It was an alternate site that was fully open to PC users and served as advertisement for the game. There was also one for SA2, which made heavy use of Flash and had extra content such as wallpapers, a screensaver and a timeline of Sonic games. I have an archive of said site if anyone wants it.

I have an archived copy of Sonic Team's own Japanese SA2 message board, taken from the day before its scheduled shutdown in 2008, if anyone still wants that. In contrast to the Japanese side, which accumulated only 84 pages of topics across its entire seven-year history, the English side ran to over 2200 pages with a lot more spam content, and only the most recent 100 pages were accessible at any given time, so I didn't bother trying to archive that.

You two should upload those to the wiki.

Also, Blue Spikball, that sounds like the SA2: Battle website you have there, yes? Though I will admit I don't remember a regular SA2 website unless they just retooled it for Battle.

You wouldn't have happened to save any one other websites from that era, have you?

Its interesting that they have beta shots for the screenshots section

Found this for the MAJOR rehual dreampipe will be having this summer

Also as a update to the SA1 site the updates where put there but it broke the site lol

The team is trying to get together to fix it soon

Also did anyone else notice that this background image is the same used in the NextGen issue about Seganet?

Did that site happen to feature a small Flash animation of Tails in his mech, done in Sonic Advance style?

Sure, where in the wiki would I be uploading it to?

No, it was about SA2, and didn't have any Advance style animations. However, I don't think I ever visited the SA2B site, so if it's a retooled version of the archive I have, I don't know.
Here are screens showing what it looks like.

I don't think so. I may have a saved a few official pages, but not whole websites, other than this one. Dunno if these would be of any interest.

Are you talking about the SA1 site or the SA2 site? I'm assuming the former. Either way, the latter did have some beta screens as well.
