[SA2B / SADX] Legitimate Character Chao

Post by Sable » Tue Jun 07, 2016 9:54 pm

(NOTE: At the time of this writing, this only works with NTSC-J copies of Sonic Adventure DX, and Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. However, I'm working to see if I can rectify that.)

Image

The Nintendo GameCube Software e-Catalog (Summer 2003) was a disc distributed by mail order in (unsurprisingly) Summer of 2003 featuring demos, trailers, and screenshots of various GameCube games that were slated for release around that time, one of them being Sonic Adventure DX.

Image

As you may have noticed, in addition to information and screenshots, there's also a menu option with a Chao icon next to it. Clicking on it leads you to a subpage, advertising GBA demos for other Sonic Team titles including Minna de Puyo Puyo (Puyo Pop), Tiny Chao Garden, and Chu Chu Rocket.

Image

Selecting the option in the frame will load a new menu, wherein you can select which demo you would like to receive via the GameCube – Game Boy Advance link cable. As a nice little touch, it plays the Chao Kindergarten music from Sonic Adventure 2 (Battle)!

Image

Image

However, the really interesting part is that, upon reaching the distribution, you're allowed to select one of three rare Character Chao - Tails, Knuckles, and Amy - to go along with it. While the Tails Chao can be obtained through Phantasy Star Online, the Knuckles and Amy Chao are unattainable elsewhere without hacking!

Image

Upon selection, you will be prompted to turn on your GBA, which will then receive the distribution.

Image

After a short screen showing your Chao being converted into data, it will arrive in the Tiny Chao Garden!

Image

Afterwards, you may simply start your preferred Chao game, enter the garden, and stand on the transporter to receive your legitimate Character Chao!

Image

Image

To obtain the other two, simply repeat the process.

That's because, after I get the okay from Mooncow, I'd like to upload the actual distribution manager rather than the entire ISO. It's only 6MB of a 1.2GB disc, and I'm working on trying to patch it to work with U/E games as well.
