I think it's a good idea to have a record...
I've never seen the last sprite on that page before.
I think all those were found by either Esrael or Nemesis.
By the way, there are two enemies missing in the "lost sprites" section... well, sort of.
Look at this screenshot I took some time ago from one of Esrael's hacks:
As you see, there were originally two different kinds of seahorses in Oil Ocean, either of which behaved differently.
The other missing enemy is the octopus, which was supposed to fire at you and then fly away very fast. It was reactivated in Esrael's Sonic 2 Delta, too.
EDIT: Hey, I see you're using the triceratops GIF I made. I'm glad you liked those colors, hehe. :wink:
Did you find it at my "experimental" Spanish Sonic Database?
I mean, just the enemies. The background objects and monitors were found way before, by anybody with a tile viewer... They're pretty easy to find.
Leeeeeeeeeets see....Spring and Robotnik moniters have been around forever,Fish,Trieye,and crocbot were discovered by Erasel,Bubble Monster was found by either Nemesis or Erasel,Bouncer/Crawl,Tricerobot,and OOZ seahorse were found by Erasel,the Lamp post/restart point has been around forever,The fireball was found by either Nemesis or Erasel,the rolling ball was found by Erasel,the HPZ alpha bg was found by BMF54123,Everynamewastaken only noticed that it was in the bg,the drill,splash,and flame was found by Dr.Ivo,and finally,I think it was either Nemesis,Knuckles Prower,or Beta that found the Eggman attcking himself.
Ah... I see.
Yes I saw the octopus on Esrael's site. I figured normal OOZ has a similarly looking octopus, and I'd do more research to see what it's all about...
Actually, I found it on the Cult :P
Kurairyu: Holy, you remember all these. :shock: Thanks. I should've known about the lamppost, because I knew it's right there in debug mode.
It was actually Knuckles PRower that found those sprites... The Eggman Dumping goo on himself. ^^ Hhe.
I'm pretty sure that the fireball was found by Nemesis...Esrael found the bubble monster...
Most of those sprites were found before I arrived. The only one I can lay claim to is the fireball I think. BTW, for a complete list of every section of lost art in the rom, check my S2B hacking guide at http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~nemesis2k2/
Look through the address listing (it's long, I warn you). All compressed art that is unused has a red dot placed next to it's name. All layers of leftover data are indicated by the colorisation of the location numbers. There are a good deal of lost pattern blocks that I found remaining from S1 which I never bothered announcing because they were the same as thier S1 counterparts. They are located in one block after 7F80A in the rom.
It's mine! All mine! Mwahaha!
Woo. n_n; Eggman sprite was mine, by the way.. Still gots the original pics I posted of it, before we worked out what it was, somewhere. XD
Yow, I didn't remember some of the stuff there, though. x.x; Methinks I should check up on discoveries and stuff more often.
That's... quite a large collection there... :o
EDIT: Stupid phpBB tags... sorted now.
Fish, Three-eye fish, crocobot, Bubble monster, bouncer, Tycerabot, OOZ Seahorse, Rolling Ball: Esrael
Thanks Nemesis. I've read (part of) your hacking guide a couple of times, and that's where I got the addresses from.
One question though, how come you don't have a link to your art decompressor on the site? Or is it there but I just couldn't find it. (I managed to get it in the SC archive as you told me)
That one is cool.
Can this sprite be found in the beta?
It was found in the beta.
Woo, my old topic.. ^_^ It's been a while since I saw that. o.o; Apparently it was found before I found it, though.. x.x; So perhaps I didn't discover it after all. But the AniGIF's still mine! XD *shot*
My site is suffering from neglect right now. The next time I make a hacking guide, I'll fix up the site too. There's a lot of sections that need to be added. I've just been either too buisy or too lazy to update it.
