I'll skip the whole "Hi I'm new" crap because rarely anyone reads that, and jump right into the meat of this topic: the SNCBNK files found in one of the Sonic CD betas. In short, did anyone ever figure out what those were for? I mean, I've done a search on both this board and Google, and the best I've come up with is "unused music". I've got an idea myself that's more specific than that. In short, the unused files are bridges to the CD audio. It'll play the CD track - say, Palmtree Panic Present's - then, when it reaches the end (which, in the beta, does not fade out), it would play the relevant SNCBNK file to hide the fact that the CD audio has finished, then when the SNCBNK is over it would play the CD audio track again from the start. The end result is a (mostly) seamless loop - a nifty idea on Sonic Team's part, I'll have to admit. Now, granted, they ultimately opted AWAY from that and toward fading out the CD tracks when they finished, but hey, it explains why the tunes were on the CD in the first place, why they don't loop, why they're so short... pretty much any question I've seen about the SNCBNK, all in one fell swoop. I have several MP3 examples of what I'm talking about (Palmtree Panic Present, Tidal Tempest Present, Stardust Speedway Present and Stardust Speedway Bad Future, to be specific); I've got a RAR file with four various examples I made myself using beta music and the SNCBNK files off ICEknight's page, though it's a little too big for me to host or attatch, so you'll have to settle for Stardust Speedway BF until I can find somewhere else to host it. For some reason, the MP3s of the SNCBNK files cut a splitsecond off the end of each tune, meaning I had to do some actual sound editing as opposed to merely appending the files on. Fortunately all the SNCBNKs for the tunes I mentioned pretty much just played the same thing twice, so it wasn't a big hardship. It does mean, though, that I can't do the Boss tune (which does NOT play the same thing twice, yet still has a bit cut off), which is a little annoying, since that's the tune that really made the whole relation stand out to me. BTW, if this was all actually old hat, then sorry for wasting your time. Given that I've seen nobody else say this, though, it probably isn't, but even then it can be hard to tell.
