    I got the impression that his ego far outweighs his ability. Sonic games are well known for being buggy, and always had collision bugs even back in the Genesis days. Sonic 3 had it so bad the manual...

    Well with vblank you only get 1 per frame, if you want to change palette between scanlines you want a hblank. And yeah, it would be possible, but then you'd need to take care that the area you are...

    Either model it like that and then have it set up so the gravity twists along with the tunnel, or model it as a straight tunnel and code in a visual effect that twists each vertex depending on how...

    The same argument could be used for Comix Zone, it's piss easy up until the last level once you know what to use in which part of the game.

    I'm guessing it just does 2 palette changes, and varies the height of each change by whatever perspective must be set relative to the camera Y position. Note that the background also has a sine...

    The disc swap does virtually zero harm if you do it right. The pickup has to keep seeking for 2 more seconds, which is bugger all in its lifetime. There's more strain put on the pickup by needing to...

    I wish there was such a list, but it would require opening up and taking pics of every single cart - and the Japanese carts can't even be opened up as the screws are sealed up with the label on the...

    By the time they were selling scalps for money, they have already been through a near genocide and forced into reservations where they were slowly dying out due to not having any jobs or enough land...

    The DLC was announced last week, for those who missed it. It's called Mr. X Nightmare, and it has the crew taking on a VR landscape designed by Dr. Zan, to prepare them for whatever the syndicate may...

    Ah, right, the carts had to be manufactured in japan and then very likely through SoJ. I didn't think of that, good point.

    One could also argue that they were selling less impressive software from 93 onwards (compare the two top 1992 titles, Sonic 2 and SOR2 to Sonic 3 and SOR3 - each one half the game as its predecessor...

    He saw an opening on the market and acted on it. There's nothing unethical about that, and the only reason people can scalp like that is because we have grown too accustomed to living in a consumer...

    3rd time I'm saying that I got lower numbers because I made a mistake initially, are you skipping over my posts or what?

    It was a method good enough for military intelligence.
    You and your friends having many of them doesn't mean anything, the C+4 and C16 and even the CDTV was extremely common in my area but they...

    That's precisely what I had in mind when counting the serials. The 19 million came out as 12.5m C64s and 5.7m C128s by the way.

    The interlaced modes run 60fps, but interlaced. Which some people translate to 30fps but this is not correct - it runs 60fps but only updates half the lines on the screen per frame.

    The serials all start from 0 and progress in a linear fashion in all but a handful of odd cases, and there's a formula for computing the most likely total number from those (German tank problem). I...

    I'm saying that I'm doing statistical analysis on the serial numbers and the values don't match up the reported sales.

    However I did my analysis based on the assumption that the same manufacturing...

    Sorry, I meant the "5.6 million in japan by 1998 March" figure, not the picture.
  22. This figure is far closer to the one I get from...

    This figure is far closer to the one I get from the serials. Even if you add in the estimated PAL and USA sales, you'd get something between 7-8 million. Also note that Saturn production virtually...

    I would not be surprised in the least if the Sega numbers were inflated - just a tiny bit. You've got to look good in front of shareholders after all.

    Just to follow up on this, I counted the serials again and got around 6.7 million (this is combining normal consoles, Victor and Hitachi special units, and refurbished units too). This is NOT an...
