Am I the only one who thinks that Travis has earned his own page linked to our main page?


Nope I asked about it and DiGi said they will be adding something which includes a link to pay him through paypal.
(Check the same page you asked on. XP)

*points to Suri*

He blasted the game wide open and remade it for the Xbox XD

I've got a lot of the graphic tiles for the levels and stuff because of him. I don't think he got around to working on the bosses though.

Aaahhh, I spent my money on 4 backstage tickets on me and my friends for a christmas concert of one of our favorite rock bands. XD;; Damn, that would be something worth buying though. *shrug/sigh*

This is seriously cool. I have no money but maybe there could be some kind of NiGHTS outing to raise money? I know it's sounds silly and some of us live far far away from the dollar (Therefore our money would be useless), but I think it would be so cool.

Is a proto like a partially completed version of a new game with associated rights for the content?

Yeah! Drx, we can get you in touch with Suri. I actually emailed him a few days ago so he's still around. He's quite good at hacking stuff, i believe. :blink:
Get the Beta disc first and then we'll link you two together.

As for TRAV. Man, no need to be thanking us, haha! What you done was some crazy mad sh!t and even if you went through or not with this purchase i still would have respected you for it. It's quite a task to do what you did.

And, yes. As i've said, we will put a page up on our site for TRAV and we'll ask people to donate moniez to him because holy sh!t he deserves it.

I wouldn't mind donating some scratch to him, or preferably some artwork like Niraven said.

BTW, aside from being a prototype hunter, I am somewhat skilled in hacking and I know SH2 ASM. I will probably tackle finding hidden stuff in the game once it gets dumped. My question is, is there anyone else here who knows hacking and has hacked NiGHTS before?

Hahahah! Good luck! From what I hear, hacking NiGHTS is one task to behold. SH2 has got nothing on NiGHTS hacking. Hopefully Suri will be kind enough to give you some of the needed coding that will enable you to view certain levels and hack the darn thing properly. Last time a friend of mine asked him/her though, Suri declined to give the information of the coding out. However, seeing as how important this is, I am pretty sure Suri will help.

drx is pretty talented in the area of Hacking already Yami (He's from CulT). But i think if him and Suri shared info things would get done fast.

IT. IS. DONE.

Posted Image

As soon as the seller, who wishes to remain anonymous, accepts the payment, we're good to go! I'll be back with the final word and donation options (my poor savings account...).

Every step of the way in the last hour has felt about as epic as anything else I've done in my life. Butterflies in my stomach doesn't begin to explain. I got maybe 3 hours sleep last night and have been the most impatient person ever until I could finally clear this transaction. My class was never longer. The air has never felt colder. The wind has never felt so fierce. Traffic has never moved so slow. The tellers at the banks have never been so stupid. My computer has never booted slower.

But it's done.

It's happening. It's real. We're getting the NiGHTS into Dreams beta.

Oh, SH2 has got everything to do with NiGHTS hacking =) Saturn runs on two SH2 processors, so if you know SH2 ASM, you can understand code and pretty much find/hack anything.

IT. IS. DONE.

This is brilliant news :) I will let the seller know immediately so he can ship as soon as possible :) Congrats, man.

I know how you feel. Hunting for protos is waiting 95% of the time. So I think I know exactly how you feel (the feeling increases when you wait for especially great protos :P.

That is true. I never thought about that. Sorry if I sounded kinda mean and stupid there. I should have worded it better. (I only had 3 hours of sleep. Forgive me.) I was just trying to say that its going to be a tough job, but I am happy to know that you will most likely be able to do it. I have just heard so much and even read about how hard this game is to hack. The lack of hacking of this game over the past 11 years also leaves me sceptical. However, I am sure you will be ok. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Payment has been accepted! It's on its way!

Words cannot explain how overjoyed I am at the moment for this. This would be made so much better if I wasn't sick right now. This is a great moment for the community here.

I'll post a donation button sometime soon if anyone's willing to contribute.

Edit: And on that note, now that I've been up for almost 24 hours straight making sure everything went exactly to plan, I'm taking a well-deserved nap.

*would so be donating every penny she has if she HAD a working PayPal account* I made one, but at that time I thought those 'enter the code for the dollar amount' cards were available, and I don't dare hook it up to my bank account (I also don't plan on owning a credit card any time soon). Here's the most I can do. *hands TRAViS an imaginary blanket that's been through the dryer and a miscellaneous fever-reducer*

Haha, sweeeet. This went a lot more smoothly then that bit of Sonic X-Treme code that they tried to sell awhile back. Kinda shows a difference in fanbases, I think.

Great job Travis :). I plan on paying you those $25 I put up as part of a possible fund. The NiGHTS community is going to owe you a lot for this.

I'd like to make a Sonic Stadium news post about this some time in the future...maybe when we have some code extracted, to avoid, the same kind of sh!t that happened with Sonic X-Treme. I'll be sure to mention your name, Travis :P. As long as there aren't any objections.

drx is going to provide me the tools to do the rip so I can mess around with it on an emulator.

With any luck (or moreso the right cartridges, swap-tricks or modchips) I could try running it on my actual Saturn!

Well, to be frank, we got screwed back then. We did have the cash, it's just someone came up with a higher and bogus offer =P

That Sonic X-Treme build was crap anyway, so it doesn't even compare. To this day, I think the amount of money spent on Sonic prototypes by me, 80-90% of it from donations, is around $15000, so yeah =P

With any luck (or moreso the right cartridges, swap-tricks or modchips) I could try running it on my actual Saturn!


Wouldn't count on it that much. To run this on an actual Saturn you'd need an official boot disc called System Disc 2 (I think). They're kinda rare and hard to come by. Still, the game should run fine in emulators.

Jezz TRAViS...You're crazy, but you're the most generous crazy guy I've ever seen. Surely this will put a dent in your spending money, so I'll do my best to get some cash your way! It might only be like, $20 US Dollars, but hey, I don't want you to have to take on the weight of your purchase.
