    When you guys said you had "everything that ever existed", does this mean you have the NiGHTs demo and Boss builds as well?

    I wonder if you can find Sister Sonic and Sonic Jr as well, hopefully.

    Love the work you guys have been doing. It seems unreal how long this has all taken.

    I would be especially interested in seeing Sister Sonic, but I doubt any significant work of that game was saved. I imagine the fandom would have shifted a lot early on if that game was released.

    From a gameplay standpoint I can't see how that would be too problematic (assuming you could insert new sprites into popful mail). So long as at least some concept art was around for the characters it would be pretty trivial for a good sprite artist to make a 1:1 replacement for the characters. Story wise of course it would be a total wash unless more information was floating around about that.

    I remember when these videos first surfaced.





    I thought I'd never live to see the day. We shall see if I do. Perhaps this will all culminate with an iOS/PSN release? Holy god I don't want to dream.

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks man, means a whole bunch. I'm spread really thin lately, unfortunately. I need to put in some more time over here...

    in the mean time, have a brand new screenshot :P

    I'm excited about this but I'm hoping for a PC release more than a Saturn release. My Saturn would have to be modded, and my PC doesn't like SSF.

    Maybe some hackers and programmers can finish Sonic Xtreme for the saturn.. Maybe even get it endorsed by sega just like the widescreen HD versions of sonic CD

    So just some things I've noticed from these builds and looking at old xtreme footage:

    some of the most grainy footage might have been from POV's saturn port all along. There are number of videos that are extremely poor quality, like they were recorded off screen, than exhibits the behavior from the saturn build, namely the way the Sonic Sprite is pasted over objects in front of him, where, in the PC version, those objects merely become transparent.

    Ofer's engine would automatically make obfuscating pieces of geometry transparent if they got in between sonic and the camera, see here:



    the saturn build we have exhibits different behavior:



    We see that same behavior in some of the stranger footage for Xtreme, example:



    In footage from this area, we also see Sonic jump repeatedly, multiple times in the air (as in, more than twice). Also, in this footage, when sonic jumps, he becomes a blue sphere, where in the PC footage, when he jumps, he displays individual frames of jumping animation. I'm not sure if this is just a case of frames being missed in the video capture or not, however. Also, in the above footage, Sonic can't collect rings, just like the Saturn build, but unlike the PC build.

    Obviously any actual art or test levels they got would have been created by STI. I'm merely talking about footage of the saturn engine... potentially. I think the above that I pointed out is from POV.

    Of course, it could also just as easily be from an earlier version of Ofer's engine and the quirks I'm pointing out in the saturn build were lifted directly from Ofer's work...

    we won't know till later, I guess. Just interesting to go back and watch the old footage.

    That issue might also be a result of the Saturn's known transparency issues.

    The POV concept was cursed since the very beginning IMO, given that 3D transparencies would be required if you wanted to go beyond Bug!-like maps. I mean, you're always in a point of view where you need transparencies a lot in order to be able to see your character if he goes away/inside rooms, etc.
