Re: To anyone who doesn't know how blue, black and gold animals work,

All animals give the same amount of experience in both Intelligence and Luck. The only thing really special about Blue, Gold, and Black animals is that they have a random effect on the run<>power and swim<>fly sliders that determine evolution.

Re: My Chao is breaking logic

Also, Blue, Black, and Gold animals have a random effect on evolution, and these random effects being enough to push a Chao out of the neutral zone is probably the most common reason a Chao fails to become a Chaos Chao. And in Mamkute's example, the Chao becoming Power is also due to Power taking pr...

Re: Best Shooter Character?

Now, question is, are the Dark Chao Walker's stats the same as Big in SA2DC? As for the original question, its been so long since I've played the Adventure Duology that I can't really compare Tails and Eggman, though I will agree that the slow down compared to Gamma was one thing SA2 failed to refin...

Re: Jewel Eggs

Some thoughts: Does the above list of Jewel Coat IDs used for which egg is in the TCG market matched those used to encode Jewel Coat in a Chao's data? What happens if you overwrite that value to something in the range 0C-FE? Assuming it doesn't crash the game or cause glitches, it might give more in...

Re: Misc. questions concerning SA2B & Tiny Chao Garden

I'm pretty sure store bought Jewels are homozygous non-shiny normal two-tones under their jewel coats.

As for the TCG, I don't think anyone has taken the time to fully document the graphical glitches in any version of the TCG, so I can't provide a definitive answer.

Re: Chao doctor medicine on his desk?

My Japanese is kind of crap, and I can't see the image to confirm which character set it is using, but assuming it's entirely katakana, I think it worth noting that katakana is usually used for foreign words and Onomatopoeia. Chao is derived from the English rendering of the Greek word Chaos, which ...

Re: What is every Chao based on? Their Origin?

Isn't Dark/Fly/Fly based off of Reala from the Nights games? Also, its quite possible most of the evolutions weren't intended to resemble pre-existing characters, and even if they were, there's no reason the designers couldn't have taken inspiration from non-Sega properties(and in fact, a quick Goog...

Re: Ever realize that Tails can't jump on chao?

Yeah, Mechless Tails/Eggman are pretty barebones as far as player character objects go. Not bothering to fully implement them is probably also why Tails has no time limit on flight but can't gain any additional height from it either.

Perhaps solid colored vs multi-colored or markings versus no markings.

Hmmm... do real-life animal breeders have standard terminology for describing an animal's fur/skin patterning that could be applied here?
