    Regarding to the topic title, the other day I was reading the latest Nintendo Power magazine and they referred to him as Dr. Robotnik. xP Edit: post 666. D: I've been seeing this number everywhere lately...

    And Izuka in the same article as refer him as "Dr. Eggman".

    It's not an big deal, the Dr. can have all the names he wants. :P

    But yeah we could hear Robotnik a bit more officially just for my inner child.

    (I still agree that the Dr. deserves the name that his original creator gave him, but maybe it's just me that give a value personal creative creations, and in industry those are mutilated just for the sake of marketing and money, kinda like Sega is treating the franchise as a whole, nowadays.)

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    ...

    So...?

    "Robotnik" ain't exactly the height of manly, either.

    Double Post: Does anyone have a sprite sheet of Eggman from Sonic 1, or a .GIF for his "Try Again" screen? Thanks.
     
  10. You know. I don't really care about the name.
    That having been said, Robotnik is a more intimidating name, Eggman isn't.

    I'd rather have people refer to him as "The Doctor". Its much more streamlines, less arguments about his name, and it just sounds more badass

    Problem: it's a bit slow, unfortunately animated GIFs can't go exactly at 60fps. But it's as good as it can be.

    Would it be possible to make the .gif with no background or text, just Eggman and the emeralds? If not, thanks a bunch!

    I'm not going to apply transparency to 212 frames, but here's a crop:

    212 frames?! Golly. Don't sweat it man, but thanks a load for it, I owe you.
     
  17. This makes the choice of sound samples for the JP Sonic CD seem rather poetic.

    Yup!

    I've just been thinking about the whole Eggman/Robotnik debate. Conclusion? I don't care. Eggman as his standard name has been in active use for longer than Robotnik, and makes a little more sense considering the names of his bases and whatnot. Robotnik is of course where Badnik is derived from as well. But both names suit a childish and evil genius equally. I wouldn't mind a little more attention being brought to his official title, by G.U.N in particular, but it doesn't matter.
