Re: Plush Chao!

I've long wished I could either own a large Chao plush made by someone or had the sewing skills to make one myself(presently, the most I've done with sewing is minor mending, and before I had my carpal tunnel surgery, my CT made even that difficult, though perhaps I should give sewing another try no...

Re: Dark Shiny Two-Tone

Actually, starting from a starter egg and a shiny black market egg, I'm pretty sure you only have a 1/4 chance of getting a shiny two-tone from the breeding combination you mention. As well as a 1/4 chance each of shiny monotone, non-shiny monotone, and non-shiny two-tone. The offspring will be hete...

Re: Finally 100%-ed Sonic Adventure DX

Sounds strange to hear of people having all the A-ranks but none of the Chao Emblems. Then again, I have all the Chao Emblems, and while I've all-A'd some levels, I've never gotten an all-A Emblem. In addition to the 7 A-rank Emblems, I'm also missing the Emblems for Route 101 5, Route 280 4-5, and ...

When recruiting collaborators for a creative project, its considered common courtesy to show off some of what you've already done. Otherwise, you tend to come across as someone with a vague idea and no clue how to implement it asking for someone else to do all the work. Also, this reminds me of a fa...

Re: Controversial opinion topic

For what its worth, Sonic 1 is generally considered the weakest of the Genesis Trilogy, and almost no one really cares for S3 and S&K individually. That said, it does seem a bit extreme to bash an entire game over that one level, though I will agree that Chemical Plant's endgame where you have chall...

Re: Normal type chao

The simplest way of getting a normal-type chao is to simply not give it any animals or Chaos Drives at all. If you still want to give your Chao animals and/or drives, you need to keep both the Run<>Power and Swim<>Fly sliders in their neutral positions. This can be accomplished in many ways, but per...

Re: Question about alignment evolution.

The Hero<>Dark evolution slider can only be manipulated during a Chao's childhood. Once they enter a blue cocoon and become adults, this slider is frozen at either Completely Hero, completely Dark, or completely neutral until they reincarnate. The other two evolution sliders, run<>power and swim<>fl...

Re: How old is Tails

Sega Tails has always had traits that are improbable for an 8-year-old by real-world, human standards. I mean, how many 8-year-olds would know enough rocket science to modify a Biplane they presumably have only had access to for a few days to reach suborbital altitudes? Hell, how many 8-year-olds(or...

Re: Gradual Evolution at Level 99?

The evolution sliders are independant of stat levels/grades/values/etc. However, due to the possibility of hybridization of evolutions, you'll also need to make sure the Fly<>swim slider is neutral. I forget the exact numbers, but this can be ensured by giving enough animals to max out the slider in...

I don't know if its been confirmed, but I believe the leading hypothesis is that stat grades are binomially distributed with a mean of C. Not to get into the math, but this means C is the most common state grade, B and D are tied for second most common, A and E are tied for Fourth most common, and S...

Re: The Playground

Considering that Sonic Adventure 2 was the Dreamcast's official Swan Song, Sega might have decided to scrap some network-related features simply because they didn't want to support such on a dying console.
