    Yes, I know, this is a forum about Sonic hacking, but there isn't any forum about hacking of non-Sonic games, so here I go. I found the following in After Burner II:

    Code (Text):
    1. $004EE3 ... "PRINCESS CAPTURED DARK FORCE"
    2. $004F04 ... "RESCUE PRINCESS MIA, TOM!!"
    3. $004F23 ... "THE NAME OF DARK FORCE IS"
    4. $004F40 ... "= SIMEKIRI ="
    5. $004F52 ... "TOM FIGHT THE FORCE"
    6. $004F69 ... "AT G-PEN AND TONE."
    7. $004F81 ... "DARK MASTER USES SPELL, \"BOTTSU!!\"."
    8. $004FA7 ... "TOM FEELS EVIL POWER"
    9. $004FC2 ... "OH! IT IS SO DANGEROUS!"
    10. $004FDF ... "\"I NEVER GIVE UP!\""
    11. $004FF5 ... "TOM USES IT"
    12. $005000 ... "EM. \"YUNKKELUU!!"\"
    13. $005017 ... "TOM DRAWS AND DRAWS"
    14. $00502F ... "PRINCESS MIA ONLY PRAYS..."
    15. $00504F ... "HURRY UP !!"
    16. $00505E ... "THE MORNING COMING SOON."
    Can somebody explain it to me? What is doing that there? Is it a leftover from another game? I don't think so, the grammar sucks badly... So, what?

    It's an easter egg you can trigger each time your weapons are being reloaded. Try pressing different directions and buttons till you see any of those messages appear.
     
  3. What the hell does it mean though? I mean, if it triggered a Dopefish flying across the screen or something, I'd understand, but there doesn't seem to be any hidden in-joke here =P

    OK, I know that this topic won't be recieve any attention anymore, but now that there is a forum for non-Sonic games, can somebody move it to there, please? (also this means that the sub-subject doesn't make sense anymore)

    EDIT: done.

    EDIT 2: Thanks :)
