    Wow, I get here not even an hour after the release and we're on the 3rd page already. I was worried about download speed but it's actually not bad. Lot's of good stuff here. DRX you're the king.

    ROFL to the earliest Sonic 3D Blast Prototype (Sonic 3D Blast (Prototype 73 - Jul 03, 1996, 13.58). It's music is missing instruments, there're like three songs in the game. The stages just play the first stage/first act's song while the boss plays the Final boss' music. To make it worse, press start then press A to skip the level and all it says is "Level Complete". And if you do it after the final stage (the 3rd or forth one, forget) it says "To be continued..".

    The greatest part of the prototype is the Sega screen. It says the classic "Sega" but the letters don't fly away like in the other beta/final, the entire screen breaks into 3D shards.

    Man, I can't wait till these games are hacked to death. This is beyond greatness.

    ... my godness.. did you see the hiper sonic sprite?? the stars?? is most very cool !! the final version is bad.. I think Sonic 3C (Prototype 0517 - May 17, 1994, 17.08) (hidden-palace.org) and Sonic & Knuckles (Prototype 0525 - May 25, 1994, 15.28) (hidden-palace.org).rar the most complete games..

    The Sonic & Knuckles proto is the least complete of the S&K protos, can'a agree with you there.

    IMHO, while Sonic 2 protos were -all in all- nothing truly groundbreaking, seeing how those protos weren't the fabled "have-the-updated-level-select-but-with-lost-levels" thingie but more polished versions, S3C and Sonic 3D Blast were truly fun to explore. :drool:

    Even though I'm not that good at hacking cheat codes and I had to wait for help.

    Becoming a priest, perhaps?
    While the lack of Wood Zone or a pink Casino Night is disappointing, there's denying everything else is completely badass.

    Grats on your success DRX. You've become a legend.

    Oh sweet, I'm on the contributor list, hot. :P

    This is a pretty historic day (yesterday, that is... I had a comedy show to attend to when the release happened, and drinking to do after that). Congratulations on an epic win, drx.

    EDIT: HOLY SHIT, Shining Force II for GG is in here? Oh my god, I love you, drx. Also, a really impressive number of Pico titles on here.

    Nothing.
    (late, I know)
    Drx is a god. Really.
    All we now need is a Sonic 1 proto. Then we can sleep in peace.

    Rememer when I said I wasn't impressed unless a Sonic 1 proto was found?

    Well fuck it, 1000 prototypes, plus a Shining Force 2 one. I'm fucking amazed. I was totally not expecting 1000 prototypes.

    I only tried Sonic 3C 0408, Sonic 2 (Many various versions), Ristar 0812, and Knuckles Chaotix 213B, 1227, and 1229.

    That was an awesome release, thanks drx. Hope to see more from you soon.

    Whatever catches my fancy
    This is probably the most valuable thing here. This is the execution environment for the machine that compiled this DOOM prototype. It tells us a lot about the hardware that was attached to it, and the assembler itself.

    Code (Text):
    1. CONFIG=full_system
    2. COMSPEC=C:\COMMAND.COM
    3. PROMPT=$P$G
    4. MOUSE=C:\MOUSE
    5. BPATH=;c:\brief\macros
    6. BHELP=c:\brief\help
    7. BFILE=c:\brief\state.rst
    8. BPACKAGES=s-asm,asm:s;h-c,c,pas:r
    9. BFLAGS=-k -bi120z -mJKT -mrestore -Dega -D101key
    10. BTMP=c:\brief
    11. DIRCMD=/OEDN
    12. TEMP=C:\DOS
    13. SOUND=C:\SB16
    14. BLASTER=A240 I5 D3 H3 P300 T6
    15. PATH=D:\WATCOM\BIN;D:\WATCOM\BINW;D:\WATCOM\BINB;C:\DOS;C:\UTIL;C:\BRIEF;C:\NORTON;C:\WINDOWS;Z:.
    16. EDPATH=D:\WATCOM\EDDAT
    17. INCLUDE=D:\WATCOM\H;D:\WATCOM\H\win
    18. WATCOM=D:\WATCOM
    19. windir=C:\WINDOWS
    So, we can see that this machine had an assembler (of course), a Watcom tablet, and a sound card. I don't see anything that may have been used for music development, though. The machine appears to have run DOS and Windows 3.1 (we have both C:\DOS and C:\WINDOWS in the path, and a WINDIR variable).

    Great find, sir.

    EDIT: It looks like the variables that I thought were being used by their assembler were actually being used by their text editor. So now we know what text editor they used. =D

    Uh oh, looks like Star Wars Arcade (32X) (Prototype - Sep 06, 1994) (hidden-palace.org).bin built wrong. Its all Odd bytes :\ (even bytes are duplicates of odd bytes)
