Thank you for your awesome lesson in Wikiformatting Categories~! Overlord 16:56, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

OK I added S3-eu-box.jpg, and figured I'd do S3D at the same time but my box is a bit mangy - I uploaded it as S3d-md-eu-box.jpg - I shall leave it up to you as to whether or not it replaces 20px, I've not linked it anywhere. Overlord 22:31, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

comment on fait pour mettre sont avatar comme les autres ? --FAFA 21:27, 31 July 2007 (CDT)


I have some manual images of those McDonalds games. But the guy that took the pics wasnt doing it for archiving purposes so the pages are curled and stuff. I was thinking I could upload them, and then make a remastered version or whatever. A Text Document or something to accurately recreate the text. So I'd upload the real manual image and a remastered image. The manuals are only 1 page each and i have 5 of them I think. So what do you say?--MathUser 11:38, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey SS, should the badniks in the development section also be mentioned? [[1]] I mean, have a page also.

Another message, if you look at game compilations, I think all of them recieved a E rating or the equivalent. This can be used to accumlate additional ratings for games that werent rated individually. It may be a small project for you but you could see how many countries a game was rated. If the compilation was rated E, then every single game on it will be that rating cause it cant go any lower. I started but I dont know if it is accurate, I just copy pasted the ratings from the compilation itself.--MUser 20:47, 18 May 2009 (CDT)

Well, I was unaware that a Sonic compilation got anything other than the lowest rating, I don't understand the ratings system of other countries. I was just clueing you into why I added those ratings on certain games. A few 8-bit titles had no ratings previously. I only looked over 2 compilations, SADX and Sonic Gems. Otherwise it might of been possible to give more ratings to other games, possibly.--MUser 06:57, 19 May 2009 (CDT)

Dreamcast Images

Hello! Thanks for your willingness!

I hope I’m not asking too soon but I ask the animal rips for Sonic Adventure. The rest is pretty much done, the links in the image is all that it’s needed:

If you could point me to another way to format the SA and SA2 tables properly this could have a better look as well.


PSP Images

Y helo thar.
Regarding File:Rivals2 titlescreen.png; don't suppose you can recall where you managed to dredge that up from (unless it was your own screencap)? I was going to have a try at article-ing the Rivals 2 stages, so if there's a source of appropriate pix somewhere on the Internets that's better than crappy IGN shots, I'll use it.

Greetings! I was wondering if there has been any discussion about installing DPL on the Wiki. I can see a huge use for it. If it were installed, with permission, I would love to put together a better organizational method for hacking utilities. It could eventually be used to organize other things on the Wiki as well. --PicklePower 23:14, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

I have no problem installing this, but I'll be honest--I'm not really sure how we would use it. Could you give a breakdown example? - Scarred Sun 04:32, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Sure. One way we could use it is to organize and display game hacks on a page. Some better categorization would need to be done on each hack, but once that is done, DPL can be used to pull template parameters from each page in a given category. A page could be made, for example, for all hacks of Sonic CD. This page could be automatically populated with a screenshot and author's name for each hack in the Sonic CD category (as defined in a specific template used on that page, Template:Hack in this case). So if the screenshot of a hack changes, or if a new hack altogether is added to the Sonic CD Hacks category, that page is updated automatically. DPL could also be used the same way to populate the thumbnails in Sonic_the_Hedgehog_(Archie_comics)#Cover Gallery or even in Template:ArchieComics as they are created in individual pages, so someone doesn't have to remember to go back and add a new thumbnail manually. --PicklePower 04:51, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Everything should now be set up. Let's see whatcha got. ;) - Scarred Sun 05:17, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! I look forward using it. --PicklePower 05:24, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for moving the comic pages. You actually didn't need to change the issue number used on the template, because that number is only used for display. The pages are ordered by their title, which was causing the problem. --PicklePower 18:41, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

So as far as organizing hacks goes, what do you think about classifying them according to these qualities? We shouldn't make these categories...we'd just be specifying these qualities in Template:Hack for each hack:

  • Visual (pallete, art)
  • Audio (music, sound effects)
  • Level layout
  • Basic engine changes (physics, spin dash)
  • Advanced engine changes (new menus, characters, advanced moves)

I think there's issues with multiple flowplayer videos on one page. The videos don't all show up on Sonic_Adventure_Commercials and Spike damage behavior. --PicklePower 15:23, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Sidebar links

Is it necessary for every link in the navigation sidebar to point to a category page? Category:Sonic Community Hacking Guide, for example, is just a giant unorganized list of pages, whereas SCHG:Sonic Community Hacking Guide is pretty much the same list except organized properly and thus much easier to navigate. On the other hand, it's also the first link on the category page, so I dunno. --Shobiz 19:36, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I don't suppose it has to in every situations, especially ones where things don't move around much like the SCHG. - Scarred Sun 19:56, 26 May 2010 (UTC)


What if you throw that into a template, like Template:HideCategoryListing? --PicklePower 02:29, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

BRILLIANT IDEA I WAS JUST TOO EXCITED - Scarred Sun 02:35, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Well I'm not sure how consistently active I can be, but I definitely want to help where I can. It would be very helpful for making that occasional article move without bugging other people. --PicklePower 04:00, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Music Removal

I don't mean to be nosy, but aren't those tracks (S3D and Sonic CD 95) part of the OSV project, and MEANT for download? I can understand removal of entire albums, as that would waste serious bandwidth, but isn't this different somehow? --RGamer2009 01:09, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

It really is different; why on Earth are entire parts of the OSV project being removed?!? This doesn't make sense! Unless they're violating copyright law, then I can see why it's being done. --Gxm110 00:19, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Bandwidth keeps going over our limit. Sorry. - Andlabs 00:24, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Well then there needs to be another place to store the music! Its not an OSV project if we can't even download the rips! --RGamer2009 01:31, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

I am dealing with the issue in the long term. Until then, they're gone. This is not up for debate. - Scarred Sun 02:05, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

I have made a notice template explaining why the music is not there. It'll do for now. SOTI 16:42, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Sonic 3D Blast Saturn art

Hi there! For some reason, your high-res scan of the US “Sonic 3D Blast” Saturn box art isn’t showing up in full resolution. Try it yourself: S3dss-box-us.jpg If you click “Full resolution,” you get the same image as the preview (478×800), even though the file page says the full resolution is 2830×4791. Do you think you could re-upload the image (or whatever else might fix this problem)? Thank you! Tina Russell 18:42, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Metal Sonic chaotix

Hey any idea what the names for the sprites of Metal Sonic and Metal Sonic Kai are in the source code / in-game files for Knuckles' Chaotix?--MSBlue (talk) 17:50, 25 August 2017 (CDT)

New Sonic 2 prototype found!

Theres a whole lotta info about this version of sonic 2, which was recently dumped by drx not too long ago... you might wanna read about the proto here:

P.S: Hopefully the file itself w/info gets submitted into the Sonic 2 beta page over at Sonic Retro soon! The info states that this prototype is the potentially missing "beta 3", which has some unique differences comparing to beta 4! Theres even news about the censor prototype here:

P.S #2: You can even look at the comparisons here:
