I have a savestate with the alternate Time Attack screen if anyone wanted to mess around and figure it out. Retro's upload option doesn't seem to work on this filetype though. For the record, upon examining the savestate in Tile Layer Pro, you get the usual graphical text like 'SONIC CRACKERS S32X" etc. but nothing with "NUTS". Could be a compressed image or something, though why you'd need to compress something so basic eludes me. It just occurred to me after reading Pengi's post, that NUTS could have been a scrapped name for Ray. Think about it. Ray has a sunny disposition, is already named after sunshine, and is a squirrel. Could it have been a Japanese pun this entire time? NATSU being a play on both "Summer" and "Nuts". Given that they were trawling through the archives for old characters, could there have been an intent at some point between Crackers and Ringstar to revive both Ray AND Mighty for Chaotix? They would certainly fit if they wanted to replace both Sonic and Tails at some point. Seems odd that they'd pick Mighty and not even consider Ray. Though why that would result in "NAT" being used for Mighty, I don't know.
