    Err, should i worry about continuity?

    I can't figure out why after all of Sonic's speed, I still find him quite boring.. I hope things don't get redundant here.. Or maybe I should be getting something I hadn't.. Oh well.. Here's to sega supporting Nintendo again! [​IMG]

    Ah... Sonic Advance 3. Everyone's probably played the beta version to death already.

    Sega do that quite a bit with their games...they code all the different languages inhouse instead of sending the game away to a European branch or whatever...kinda weird considering they sometimes do this with games that don't even get released in countries they made translations of it for.


    Anyway Sonic Advance 3...sorry guys but to all those doubters out there thinking the earlier rom was just a beta, all I can say is... told ya so. [​IMG]
    ...I said the version was released ages ago was very likely to be the actual retail version and juging by the (U) release it is...*sigh* as usual no one listens to me though.

    But yeah the two games...gameplay wise from what I played (had both games running side by side in VBA) the games are exactly the same...all the menus, graphics, sound etc... Sonic still ran at the same pace and so on.

    The only difference between this release and the one ages ago is that the earlier rom was the (E) version whilst this is the (U) version.
    For anyone who cares here are the different rom headers:

    The header information of file Sonic Advance 3 (E).gba - (aka the "beta" release).
    -----------------------------------------
    Software Title: SONICADVANC3
    Game Serial: AGB-B3SP-EUR
    Maker Code: 8P
    Publisher: Sega
    Version: 1.0
    Logo Code: OK
    Complement: 55h
    Save Type: FLASH512_V131 (512Kbit)
    File Size: 128 mbit (16777216 bytes)
    CRC32: 143DF94D
    -----------------------------------------

    The header information of file 1490 - Sonic Advance 3 (U).GBA - (aka the game in this topic)
    -----------------------------------------
    Software Title: SONICADVANC3
    Game Serial: AGB-B3SE-USA
    Maker Code: 78
    Publisher: THQ
    Version: 1.0

    ...No doubt when the "real" (E) version does actually get released by a group it will be identical to the "beta" version.

    No ROMs will be found on GBATemp.

    mIRC is your friend. Always remember that.

    Unless SEGA has finally added some bonus stages, I'm not downloading this rom...

    Sonic was so much more fun on 16-bit.

    I missed out on the beta, but I think I'll give this a play after I get tired of Mario VS Donkey Kong.

    So far it's not too bad. Kinda wierd going around one world to get portals to the actual stages. Couple new innovations (ie. the see-saw launch board) already found in the first world. I havn't figured how to use 2nd charactor yet, but that's alright. Should be fun... I've always been a Sonic fan.

    (E) was so beta!
    It's buggy as hell, wheras this one was not.
    Still found some slight bugs in this one though.

    Get over it... (E) version comes after (U), ok?
