    I have noticed that when you collect a Chaos Ring, the text says 'GOT A HOLY RING' Is that in the original aswell? I never got one in that...

    I don't think it's in the final but it is in the other betas as well.

    I reccommend the HTTP Mirrors announcement be renamed to actually mention the protos so as to cut down on such posts as this.

    210 is the most up to date version that still has Tails's flying ability intact, however due to the fact that tails stats are non existent (removed on the 119 proto) you'll need to replace an existing characters stats.
    Trying to use Tails stats on the latest version of Chaotix results in an odd reversed glide effect (left is right, vice versa), which picks up speed with movement however doesn't allow movement up or down.
    for my example, replace knuckles stats with:
    02 2F 40 00 10 00 00 10 00 70 00 00 34 00 00 A0 00 18 00 18 03 80 07 00 08 00 0C 00 01 00 FF FF FF FF 02 00 03 00 00 10 08 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 04
    Knuckles stats are located at $C0CA

    Figured this could be useful for anyone planning to add tails to Chaotix, also just interesting to have a rough idea of when it was removed I guess.

    Awesome. Somebody needs to try that in the final! Weren't you the one who found out the format of those character stat arrays?

    Yeah, by slowly and tediously corrupting bits of the rom...

    I reached that point then got sidetracked, ill have to resume it eventually.


    As I said, you can use Tails's stats in the final but it gives a really weird floaty glide instead, not flight like 210 and earlier versions.

    Oh and I specifically used knuckles in my example as he has enough sprites to not crash the game (like mighty, bomb and heavy do).


    Figured I'd find the latest version to still have tails flight on to make it easier on anyone planning on adding him, since its the newest version... less changes means less work finding what does what.

    Just as a recap if anyone is interested, Knuckles stats in the final are at $BEC2, where Mighty's are $BE78, just before that are the pointers telling the game where to find the stats, first two being identical (both point to mighty, 2nd being tails).
