Chaotix (prototype 1229)
ROM size: 4 MB
Genre: 2D Platform
Knuckles' Chaotix prototype 1229 for the Sega 32X was released by drx during the February 23rd, 2008 proto release. Its compile date is Dec, 30 1994.
NOTE: To play the prototype in
Kega Fusion v3.6 and up, the "Fast 32X Timing" option in the 32X configuration tab must be enabled. For older versions of Kega Fusion, a special release, which can play the prototype, was made available here ( (268 kB).
The US region title screen still says "Featuring Espio the Chameleon" unlike in the final version.
To climb walls with Knuckles, you must hold the jump button, otherwise he will jump off the wall (much like Vector in the Final).
Knuckles climbing sprites are different.
Different end signpost.
Different Special Stage art.
When you call your partner, your sprite is in front of their's. Heavy looks so much smaller by comparison.
When a special stage is successfully completed, the results screen says "Got The Holy Ring" instead of "Got Chaos Ring."
Newtrogic High is mostly intact, however the Combi Catcher is not yet working. Instead, the makeshift NPC SELECT screen from Time Attack mode is used after your level is chosen.
The light switch is not present in Amazing Arena, nor is the mini-boss. However, you can complete the level regardless.
