The sign post was carelessly placed there to make the level beatable. In normal gameplay, with the boss implemented, there wouldn't be a screen...
The artist who made that proto BG probably wanted it to have paralax scrolling, as there are horizontal sections in the graphics, which...
Nope. They're similar but the actual 'legs' are different.
The Sonic 3 one gets the trophy IMO.
LZ BG has a hidden chunk to the right.
And SZ BG is HUGE!
Yep. It uses the "Nise Sega Sonic Font" for the Sonic Logo. You can notice how the bottom left part of the S is a bit shorter than it should. It...
They scale the resolution down vertically, but do so using special hardware tricks like skipping lines etc. Horizontal interpolation would require...
Well, at least now we have all the changes documented :)
That's interesting. Is that NDS ROM available? I haven't heard of a prototype of Sonic Classic Collection before.
KazoWar made some videos with the ripped ROMs running on JenesisDS in 2010 and had them released, I couldn't find links now, though. I guess it's...
Prototype? Was a prototype for Sonic Classic Collection ever found? We've had the original game ROMs dumped since 2010.
Yeah, just noticed the two purple flowers on the left aren't on the repeated chunk sequence. Interesting.
The background received changes so there's a big chance it didn't align with the final one. You just can't say the signpost was placed earlier.
Final is red, proto is black. It's not a major change but interesting nonetheless.
While not being capped at 30 makes a difference, the PS3 version also runs at a consistently lower framerate. You can see it in this video. The...
It just didn't.
Seriously, I think the more simplistic, shallower approach used in modern titles* is better for the series, specially how the...
No 'R9' labels were ever found, unlike R2. AFAIK the R9 rumours come from the fact the Final boss song is named 'Final Fever' in the DA Garden.
The things I most like this are PAR correction and the CRAM editor. AFAIK only Kega and Emulicious do it for SMS games.
Windows RT is ARM-based and again, it comes with Internet Explorer. It also features the old IE9 mode compatibility layer. So you either...
Separate names with a comma.
