    I know this has been discussed before, but I was pretty sure if you hit the diagonal spring and avoid pressing the D-pad, you can progress. Much like getting to the secret platform at the end of EHZ2. Is there more to this that I don't know?

    I just checked in Kega to be sure and nope. Maybe you're remembering the '96 PC/Gems Collection version, they've repositioned the spring to make the section passable.

    Act2 can be beaten in the Past (without glitching through a wall) by running across the top of the ceiling which you can reach high-up right at the start of act2 by using the super peel-out/spin-dash. Unfortunately this technique is no good if you want to destroy the robot generator (to get the good ending) and still beat the stage whilst staying in that time period, because once you destroy the generator you cannot backtrack to the start of the stage in order to reach the ceiling. You would have to get killed after destroying the generator so that you can restart the stage in Past from the beginning and then reach the ceiling.

    At least time-travelling to the the present/good future after destroying the generator is pretty straightforward in act2.

    I believe it is absolutely a glitch but tbh I like to think not being able to finish Act 2 in the past is a metaphor. You can't save the world by dwelling on the past, Sonic!

    Where did you guys get the Mega CD and Super 32X & Knuckles goodies? I got my Genesis Mini 2 but it feels so alone without friends, specially when my Genesis Model 2 I had since a kid is paired with the same SEGA CD Model 2 I had as a kid as well.
     
  7. I got mine from Amazon Jp since Amazon Jp now ship to the UK

    Yeah, mine was from Amazon Japan as well. Had to create an account to do it but the process is largely available in English, it's not complicated. Whether they still HAVE them is an entirely different story!

    WING☆, the sound programmer behind the new arrangements for the Mega Drive mini has shared some details on how the audio is set up for the new version of Space Harrier 1 and 2.

    Also:

    I have to say Hiro made an excellent job creating the arrangements for Space Harrier in 1986. The YM2203 only has 3 mono FM channels, so he made the bass PCM to free one of the FMs for more melodic content and it works really well IMO. I've recently rearranged Shining Wind from Outrun 3D into a Space Harrier song a lot of elements had to be rendered using the SSG (square waves) as the Master System FM Unit has more channels than the Space Harrier arcade hardware.

    WING☆ reproduced arrangements very well and they sound as faithful as they could be. M2 did a really great job.

    Space Harrier 1 and 2 are hard to look at and the sound is worse than the original ones.

    But hey, Space Harriet has the Master System boss now.

    I'll have to disagree. While Space Harrier 1 does have drawbacks on the PCM/SFX side, Space Harrier 2 is a MAJOR upgrade.

    Not only it sounds better but it plays at twice the original framerate (30 vs 60fps) with much better scaling!

    You can also activate the "Deflicker" option in the hidden settings menu in both titles to reduce/eliminate the sprite flickering and make them look fantastic.

    Space Harrier had the SMS boss since the 3DS release. The Sega Ages version on Switch also does.
