    I sort of mentioned this in the "Supreme Topic of Other Knowledge" topic (and this might be old for the most hard core hackers), but I don't think I mentioned the symbol list in the ELF files of the Sonic CD port for the GEMS collection. But, there are:

    Here's an snippet:

    <!--c1--><div class='codetop'>CODE</div><div class='codemain'><!--ec1-->0004:00000000&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; action

    This was found in R11A.ELF, generated from the Gamecube port of ZONE 1 ACT 1. Both ports use ELF files as executables for each level and act, but there is another use for having this. For example, let's look at the 'action' subroutine in IDA:

    Yep, this is the subroutine written in PPC assembly language. We can actually do the same thing with the PS2 port of SCD in IDA, for example, here's the same subroutine in the PS2 port:

    This is from the PS2 version in MIPSL assembly.

    And here's a generated list of the symbols used for the PS2 version of R11A.ELF:

    <a href="http://pastie.org/631199" target="_blank">http://pastie.org/631199</a>

    As you can see, many of these are familiar. That's because some are the same symbols used in the Sonic 2NA symbol list (which in a way is probably part of the Sonic 1 symbol list as well). While it's obvious as to why, I think it's worth mentioning. But it goes to show you that at least when they were porting the game to the PC - they had the courtesy to retain the same labels while porting the game.

    Sorry if there are any inaccuracies in this topic, but I'm new to this. :p

    Old topic, but thanks to your label list I was able to find a name for this badnik:

    <a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Kamemusi" target="_blank">http://info.sonicretro.org/Kamemusi</a>

    Any chance you could do the rest of the zones? (I only need one list per zone to find the missing enemy names.)

    Let me know if you find anything else interesting in those lists.

    btw, on a side note: the CM_ files are compressed in SZDD. Very easy to decompress with CompreXX. All these seem to be are the graphics for zones and some other stuff.

    I've renamed all but three of the badniks, which either use non-obvious names or are missing from the label lists:

    <a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Template:SCDEnemies" target="_blank">http://info.sonicretro.org/Template:SCDEnemies</a>

    Maybe someone else could have a look, in case I missed them.

    I've noticed a "scarab" and a "pat_scarab" in Metallic Madness labels. Perhaps those refer to the <I>dung beetle</I>?


    EDIT: Also, the Mecha-Bu seems to be referred to as "kabuto" in there. Perhaps that info should be reflected in the wiki as well?

    I stuck a bunch of possible English names into Google Translate and then searched the label list for the resulting Japanese translations. I seem to have hit a match for CC Badnik 1 with "Ga" , which apparently means "moth". Anybody like to confirm this?

    Unfortunately I didn't have as much luck with "Bakudan" (bomb) for MM Badnik 2...

    I noticed those too, but "bakuha" means "explosion". The same labels appear in the source code for all of the levels, meaning it's probably a generic explosion object. I'm not sure how an explosion can "move" or "die", though - perhaps they meant "animate" and "delete".

    Is the bomb enemy in all 3 acts and every time period? The code might not be present if it's not used in this particular level.

    I don't know how the GEMS collection version of Sonic CD is structured (indeed, I don't even know what exactly it is), but I can say that in the MegaCD version, the code for the big bomb is contained in all timezones for the MMZ2 .mmds, while it isn't contained in any .mmd for MMZ1 or MMZ3. (Likely of no use, but its internal object ID there is 0x23.)
    Are there symbol tables only one for each zone, or one for each former .mmd?

    I noticed a note in the wiki that "kabasira" is a slight misspelling of "kabashira"; however technically it's just a matter of how you romanize the original Japanese name. There's the syllable that is commonly romanized as 'shi', which in the code however is romanized as 'si'. It's the same with Kemushi etc.

    (On a totally unrelated note: I'll still continue to call 'Dango' a Rollbug. :P)

    Oh yeah, I knew I was going to regret not saying where these are coming from. :P

    Like the originals, every zone and act and time is separated in their own executables. I got all the symbols from the first act (present?) of each zone. So yeah...

    But let me know what I exactly you need from which act/zone/time and I'll try to get it.

    I think R82A (or any other of the R82, that is Metallic Madness 2, any timezone) should be sufficient to find the name for that last badnik, the bomb.

    R83C (Metallic Madness 3 Good Future) would be of personal interest to me, to see how closely the labels can be assigned to the labels I have in my disassembly of the MegaCD version, or if things have been restructured somehow.

    Also of interest is that the light-bulb badnik, currently listed on the wiki as "Hotaru7" from its' label in Stardust Speedway, is labelled "Hotaru8" in Metallic Madness 3. Does this badnik act differently between the different zones or something? (I don't know my Sonic CD well enough, I'll confess). If so, I think it's safe to assume the intended badnik name is "Hotaru", with the 7 or 8 designating which Zone's version of the badnik is being used (since Stardust Speedway and Metallic Madness are Round 7 and 8 respectively).

    <b>EDIT:</b> Noticed the wiki page confirmed that the Badnik has different behaviour depending on which Round it was in. <strike>Attempted to add the above info to the "Hotaru" page; however, messed things up a bit and created a new page called "Hotaru" rather than moving the existing one. = / Not being a wiki sysop, can't delete the page I created. Have updated the existing "Hotaru7" page with the info for now; any chance someone with the correct privelages could delete it and move "Hotaru7" to "Hotaru" instead?

    Am really really sorry about this - this is why I don't usually attempt to edit the wiki. = (</strike>

    <b>EDIT2:</b> Big thanks to Frozen Nitrogen for fixing my goof. = ) Will be more careful in future.

    Job done, then - all the Sonic CD badniks now have "proper" names. Good work, everyone! :thumbsup:

    Can the badniks' names use 'formal' Romanisation as opposed to the 'short' used in the ROM, as mentioned earlier? In this case, it only requires replacing 'si' with 'shi'.

    No, because that's how they're written in the code. If they were written in Japanese, then we could convert them to latin text properly (and possibly translate them). As it is, we're copying the labels verbatim like we did with S2 (Redz, BBat etc).

    Ah, so <I>that's</I> where the name "Redz" comes from, is it? I did wonder. Might be worth pointing that out in the article, as with the SCD Badniks.

    Also, while we're talking about the S2 Unused Badniks, why is Buzzer's graphic and a sheet of its' concept art even used on the page for "Bee"? There's a handdrawn sheet on that page planning tile layouts for Buzzer, which says "refers to incorrectly as Wasp". But Buzzer's concept name *was* Wasp, as evidenced by the naming of the Digitizer images ICEknight was sent ages back and, IIRC, the images in S2 mobile, which refer to all badniks by their original labels (such as "Wasp" for Buzzer and, funnily enough, "Sandcrab" for Crawl).

    Which does bring up another issue - would ICEknight mind if the Digitizer images were added to the wiki? There's some interesting stuff in there, such as the extra unused frame for "Wasp"/Buzzer, the earlier version of "Snail" that's more similar to the concept art, etc. These things should really be archived on the wiki if at all possible.

    Anyway, it was always my understanding that "Bee" and "Wasp"/Buzzer were two separate entities with nothing to do with each other - where exactly has the notion they would have shared graphics come from? If it's not substantiated by anything we have, the image linking to the "Bee" page should really be changed to a picture of the badnik as depicted in its' concept art, where it looks startlingly like Buzz Bomber. Either way, the tile planning sheet should be moved to Buzzer's page, since it's labelled "Wasp" and clearly depicts the tile layout for Buzzer.

    <b>EDIT:</b> Also, one other thing - the images at the bottom of the sheet of Banper's concept art depict a version startlingly similar to the graphics of the early version of "Sandcrab"/Crawl found in prototypes of the game. This seems to suggest, bizarrely enough, that Banper eventually became the one and only Casino Night Badnik. However, this is unsubstantiated and only based on the similarity in design of the images (well, and the fact Crawl's label name is "Sandcrab" and that Banper was initially considered for a Desert Zone). Thought it was worth mentioning here at least.

    Sure, go ahead. Citing the site where they came from as a reference would be a nice touch.


    Regarding Sandcrab, I'm sure that's what Banper evolved into, after some more brainstorming. That must be the reason why the crab is sketched in the same page.
