This is pretty cool. Much thanks to Mr Stitt for his time and the use of his memory, and also to Laura for conducting the interview. If he's still reading the thread and doesn't mind another brief question, I've always wondered: What significance does the number sequence 4, 1, 2, 6 have to Sonic or STI? Every other cheat code in Sonic 2 was meaningful (Naka's birthday, the game's release date, etc), so it stands to reason that this one does too. (I'm purposefully not bringing up the fan speculation here, because I don't want to prime or prompt a false memory.) Thanks again for sharing with us!
