    Sonic the Fighters released in the US?

    Here is what Zifei had to say about this:

    First of all, Sonic the Fighters wasn't made the Sonic Team, it was made by AM2 (you know, the same people that made Virtua Fighter, Daytona…) for the Titan STV arcade board. As for a Saturn version, SoA is still thinking over it…so a release is possible. But the port is done by a Japanese team, and the port isn't complete. Right now, all the SoJ programmers are busy with DC games. So if Sega is to bring on StF, they'll have to hire a third party to finish the port.

    2 responses to the same thread:

    I doubt [that the port will be made]. Sega have officially admitted that there will be no more Saturn games produced after the ones they've already made.

    …Or at least, that's what SoE/SoA have said. Thanks, SEGA. However, SoJ are being the 'good guys' again, and are making (a few more) Saturn games…And BTW, Sega officialy canned Sonic Fighters/Championship about a half-a-year ago.

    Copyright Issue

    If you have a Sonic site at all, please read this. I have seen a lot of people making these kinds of mistakes. Sonic and anything related to Sonic is the sole copyright of Sega. Archie and DiC don't own a thing. And neither do you, even if you make a game, character, fanfic, or some other junk (unfortunately, about 97% of fan games, fan characters, and fanfics are junk in my opinion), because Sega instantly owns the copyright. You can't sell anything you make that's Sonic related either. It may sound mean, but if you want to make money, make a new game series.

    I have seen some conflicting opinions on the 'net about this. I'm not sure who is right. Ken Penders also said something similar.

    Note from Vector: the next 2 articles are old. I apologize for not sending them in earlier.

    More Hidden Zones? (This time for Sonic & Knuckles):

    I FINALLY got into a GamePatch server yesterday, and I found a code that said access to unfinished level. There were 2 versions of this code and I was wondering, what is this zone called, are there any pictures of it, and has anyone played it? I put the codes up here:

    This person tried the Game Genie code but couldn't get it to work. There's also an Action Replay version.

    Here's 5 posts on the 4 fan comic series that are on the 'net (that I've heard about):

    I just kind of thought that the D Chronicles was kind of a bad idea, so I'm trying to make a comic that is in the Sonic anime universe. More information at a later date. – Danehog

    Stefan, the penciler for the series already finished the first page!(and the page is cool, believe me!) Pretty soon, you'll be able to read ish#1(when it's finished) at the following page:
    No, it's not fancy, and it's used with their OLD homepage builder, simply because I don't want to put a lot of time into making the webpage. I just want to post the comic pages and be done with it. – Danehog

    Im in the making of a comic series and i was woundering if any of you have a real good coloring program and would like to color the FIRST issue of it?? I only need the first issue colored. For more info, check out my site at or just e-mail me at

    I'm making an online comic called A SegaSonic Adventure, which'll be also an RPG. The request of mine is simple, would anybody here be an alternate writer? – Stuf

    Good luck mate – I've been advertising for ages and I haven't had any writers sign up to Sonic Ideal yet. I've got a few artists, but I'm having to do all the writing myself at the minute! – David Bulmer

    About Sonic Ideal, I read a post a few weeks ago that definitely increased my confidence in the series. All the characters were researched on Japanese sites, and David Bulmer said that every character will have substantial parts in the series. I'm sorry I couldn't remember more, but it was a while ago.
