Coming Soon! 05/06/2015 BLUE IS COMING BACK! ==== POINT OF VIEW BUILD OF SONIC X-TREME: ==== (Totally different engine from the STI Engine that we are all familiar with) (Credits to Jollyroger for getting this build to run on real hardware and not just the dev hardware) Release Trailer: Credits to Andrew75. http://youtu.be/c1U8jRWDBGU Mini Documentary. Credits to Borman. http://youtu.be/bwRERyhP31A Okay Guys ! So yeah, We have here the never before seen engine build of Sonic Xtreme by Point of View. (videos or pictures have never been released publicly until now.) Little is known about this build of Sonic Xtreme outside of a FAQ put togeather By Chris Senn which mentions POV a few times. The Faq can be found here: http://www.senntient.com/projects/xtreme/FAQ.html From what I gather, sometime in the middle of Sonic X-treme's development, Sega outsourced the completion of Sonic X-treme to Point of View studios, without the knowledge of technical lead Ofer Alon or artist Chris Senn, who were working on the PC and Saturn engine and levels. Point of View used assets from the original effort and developed a level converter to convert Sega Technical Institute's engine levels into the binary format used by POV's own engine, which had already been used before for several other games on a variety of platforms, such as Saturn, Playstation, Nintendo 64, PC. Fast forward to 2015 Jollyroger acquired the POV file assets from Tichua. In its Initial state the POV build did not run on Standard Saturn hardware, It could however run on development Saturn hardware. so Jolly had to massage the engine code so that it could run on the Saturn hardware. Here are some Quotes taken from Chris Senn's FAQ (linked above) in regards to POV and Sonic X-treme. Mike Wallis micro interview: So yeah , I've been speaking with Mike Wallis (Sonic xtreme's Producer) by email. and! I asked if he remembered the POV build from this video and if he could give us some behind the scenes information related to the build. https://youtu.be/2snIoULkLlg Mikes response: Next I asked him if he could tell us anything about this particular v40 build for Saturn that was found by Jollyroger in the POV assets he had acquired. (as featured in the video.) https://youtu.be/Fvuxpv9-J1o Mikes response: Point Of View Sega Saturn July 14, 1996 Build Public Release 001: Mega Hugefiles Mediafire Notes: I used ImgBurn for burning the iso. If attempting the swap trick or installing a Mod chip , please be careful not to bust your Saturn, all parties involved with this release are not to be held accountable. If I've made any mistakes here, please point them out and I'll correct them, thanks guys!
