I'm going to tupdate this page with more pix you can see down towards the bottom, and answer some questions!
HERE IS MY OLD INTRO!:
Hello, and welcome to my page!!! This page is about the truth begind Knuckles Chaotix!!
In 1992-95 I worked for Sega's research dept. My job was to basicly tell them my input on stuff. (I played games and told them what I thought!) Around 93-early 94 I was given this greenboard with the lastest version of chaotix on it. They wanted the 3 of us in research to decide if we wanted Sonic in Chaotix or not. I was the only person who voted yes, because the other 2 guys only cared about sports games and didn't know how good side scrolling games are. So they decided to replace Sonic with Mighty because Mighty was also in a popular sonic arcade game back in Japan. It was another 3 weeks before the new greenboards with the new versions came in the mail here in america. But they never deleted the old ones!!!! The old copies sat on a shelf for another 2 years. In 97 I was fired, (Cause the saturn bombed and they had no money) and on the way out I grabbed one of the greenboards. So I own what may be the last part of what was Sonic in Chaotix!!!
Someone corrected me! My memory failed me, and it was late 94, early 95 I was on this project. I had to even dig out my paystubs from that year to make sure!
Some answers to questions: I have not heard of Knuckle's ring star or sonic crackers, but this game was just called chaotix, nothing else. they added knuckles name when sonic was removed.
Someone also wrote and said there weren't enough chips for chaotix, but I don't know much about that, that's all it has. You'll need to find tech docs i guess!
PLEASE don't send nasty emails! I didn't do anything nasty to anyone, and if it keeps up, I'll just delete my page. All I wanted was to share. If you have questions, I WILL ANSWER THEM!!
