  1. I personally find that very useful and valuable. I personally don't know about the 68000 instruction set, but much of the info clears a lot up for me. Personally, it has inspired me to do some reasearch and learn more about the Genesis. Thank you.
     
  2. Furthermore, from what I can tell, unknown seems to be the patent for the title screen code used to prevent characters from moving, as there is no code to place the characters on the screen if they are not "riding the event", yet the code still functions, one must conclude that at least one character will be "riding the event" when the code executes.

    It's very hard to understand how to program for the Genesis if you don't have the real development tools and hardware.

    The Sonic engine is using the most secret functions of both the hardware and the software platforms technique.
    Naka got afraid and patented them just before the 2D eara(sp?) ended in 1995.

    Damn hard for me to find out where this code is good for, but we can always search for the value "63" and the decreament opcode in the ROM and change it to see what happens :D

    You don't know anything about Sonic, do you? Ya know. 32X, the prowd owner of Knuckles Chaotix... Yep. Never did get that system, of course, it wasn't quite as popular as the Genisis was in it's time, but sheesh. Even I (12 years old) knows about a system that even you, a Sonic hacking expert (probably in teenage years) don't know about that? THAT'S PATHETIC DUDE!

    This is not the 32X. It's "Sega Neptune", a two-in-one Genesis + 32X console. It was cut before it was put on the shelves. What you see in the picture is a prototype.

    See http://consoledatabase.retrofaction.com/co...fo/seganeptune/

    I wanted a Neptune... I heard they found some in a warehouse and were selling em off for 999 bucks on eBay(but I can't be sure that's true, since it came around April Fools Time in EGM ^^;;;; =P)

    :blink: :shocked: I personally never knew about most of the systems. I am, however, glad that people dump the roms so others can play them. ;)

    This is completely off topic, but...

    How come Squiggles the Chao has zero posts, when there are two in this topic?
