It should be easy to check it out. It was one of the first things I did back when the arcade version was leaked and playable on PC. I just cannot be bothered to redownload the game and the emulator and play all the way to the end with those two characters nowadays nor I know how to hack the Steam version

Worry not. The page for this prototype has already started.

As for the Saturn games, they've been all moved over to the Sega Saturn category.

I did another category fix, mainly relating to the Satellaview uploads.

We have a rule in place such that games can't be put on the wiki before they're officially released. It's mainly there to prevent companies from getting feisty over us documenting their games before release and try to sue us. A better-safe-than-sorry measure, really. This meant holding the Breath of the Wild article back for a bit.

A fan game was also taken down recently, as was Feed the Head, as there's nothing truly hidden/unused there at the latter AFAIK.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - The Wii U version has already been hacked and some unused and placeholder stuff has been found. The Switch version, though? It's a new console and no one has hacked those yet.

Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness - Unused sound clips and lots of them. Like, enough for there to be a page dedicated just to this. Check these videos out here. A user named WhoIAm has made a small page for it in progress.

Shenmue - Something I forgot to mention here that's important: This is the biggest Dreamcast game I know of. Being spreading out over 4 GDs means there's a lot to dig through and also means the game is very big. That's probably the biggest reason a page hasn't been made yet, frankly.

WRC: Rally Evolved - This is also pretty big. Over 3 GB. Also, I (diving) don't care much about most racing games.

Snatcher - Many years ago, Mr. Kite tried to get an early start here. However, nothing unused has been found yet and the page for it has been deleted.

Meet the Robinsons - Someone on the Reddit mentioned a bunch of random unused things here. Do be warned this is by Avalanche Software, so maybe they hid something here.

Disney Infinity - The Windows 8/10 and iOS/Android versions got shut down, while the other version are still up, but with Internet connectivity disabled. That said, there is a fair amount of unused stuff here too.

We can confirm that there's a bug in PW randomization for the wiki. At least two different users have encountered this. We highly advise users avoid the randomization until this is fixed.

Also, we now have a page for things very common to find for games.

Also, more categorization fixes.

So much to see, so much to do.

Anyhow, not much progress on the Xbox side, partially because emulation isn't good and because the games are big.

Needless to say, there's been a lot of added and worked on.

Chibi-Robo! - The article got finished. Gather a round of applause for Mugg1991.

Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider II - Both of these were posted on the CTE page way back in 2013 by thefanman. Only now have I started pages for both of these games. Needless to say, they're currently lacking.

Go! Go! Hypergrind - The audio files have yet to be extracted. This isn't a very popular game, so I don't expect too much activity, although...

Meet the Robinsons (GameCube) - There's been some decent-ish progress here, and lo and behold, Avalanche did hide something poking fun at hackers.

Midtown Madness 3 - An Xbox exclusive. As such, the article has only recently been started.

Other articles made include...
Tiny Toon Adventures: Defenders of the Universe
Pizza Connection 2/Fast Food Tycoon 2 - The original Pizza Connection is not on TCRF yet.
Xkeeper

Someone apparently offered to update the software on the server, but that's not really possible right now without rebuilding it entirely -- it's something on my todo list, but work happens.

Whoever it was, thanks for the offer, though.

So, we reached 10,000 articles officially. What a wicked 7 1/2 years it's been so far. I've been working my ass off for the wiki, yet I still feel like there's way too much more to do.

Anyhow, I got one more Tandy CoCo game in. And by that, I mean I found one Tandy CoCo game with something worth adding. The CoCo 3 library should be worked on a little more.

In the mean time, I've done a bunch of random games and I've managed to scrape up every source code leftover I could for the NES. There are couple more games to add with source code, but those are all unlicensed. Also...

Super Pitfall - Yeah, we don't have this somehow. Likely because the game isn't super popular to hack into.

Klax (Arcade) - There is a prototype or two out there. I've got a couple of things for this up on the wiki.

10,000 articles is awesome. Especially since there is definitely more stuff to add, perhaps I'll look through the files of all the PS1 demo discs I own tomorrow.

Lots more to add on the wiki, but here are some things to point out.

Tornado Outbreak - One of the weakest pages on the wiki and the consequence of having one person write an article almost entirely by themselves. Images taken with a webcam should be replaced with either clean rips in a PNG format or screenshots. Audio clips are largely missing. The writing can be pretty unclear. The page in general needs help, especially since there's ambiguity as to what's actually in the game's data at times.

Shenmue - Good news is we've gotten started on this. The bad news is that there is a lot missing here. Ehm is getting the textures right now and has been digging through many other DC games, on top of the Persona games.

Kameo: Elements of Power, Conker: Live & Reloaded, Perfect Dark Zero, etc. - Rare's Xbox and Xbox 360 library don't get much love. As a result, there isn't nearly as much attention given to these.

LED Storm Rally 2011 - GoldS put a lot of work into this article here.

Jurassic Park: Trespasser - So more prototypes have been found. I recently dug through the executable for the E3 version and extracted some stuff.

Romancing SaGa 2 - Yes, 2. There's a debug room here too, but there are no instructions as to how to use the codes posted online.

Radical Dreamers: Nusumenai Houseki - No one has found anything here yet.

Axelay - Surprisingly, this is another game where we haven't found anything.

King Arthur's World - A prototype has been dumped and is documented on our good old pals over at SNES Central

Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City - Again, nothing found here.

Big Sky Trooper - Holy crap. Someone actually found something here. I really need to get around to it though.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Shockingly, we don't have this game at all. We don't have its sequel either. Alas, I don't have a copy of this around.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES) - Oh yeah, this page. *flashes back to 5 years ago*

Me - Hey, heard of this site called TCRF?
Person A - No, I haven't.
Me - Well, then, let me show you. (opens up a new browser tab and shows TCRF)
Person A - What is this site?
Me - It's a site about unused content in video games of all sorts, both old and new. It aims to be as comprehensive as possible.
Person A - Holy crap. This site is so awesome. Though I am wondering about something...
Me - Yes?
Person A - Can you go to Super Mario Bros. 2 page?
Me - Why?
Person A - I just want to check something.
Me - Sure... (goes there)
Person A - That page looks good, but it's missing something.
Me - That is...
Person A - The differences SMB2 and DDP.
Me - Oh yeah. I think that's partially because everyone kind of already knows that.
Person A - Still, that would so cool to see.

(The preceding was a recollection based on actual discussion on TCRF)

So yeah, we can document the differences between DDP and SMB2 now. So, best to get a subpage started on that, but don't just copy and paste from TMK please.

Pokémon Red and Blue - What a beast. There are still several things there mention and the sprite differences b/w Red and Green and the other Gen 1 Entries should probably be reinserted. We still haven't fully dug through the Japanese games yet and the differences between RG and the rest of Gen 1 are much more extensive than what the page lets on.

Tetris (DOS, 1986) - Considering not many people on the wiki have used DOS, let alone look into a game for DOS, this easter egg remains an enigma. I've been trying to find it myself and have done a partial static disassembly, but this can only go so far.

The Legacy of Kain series - Given the somewhat Nintendo-centric userbase, it's no surprise this has been relatively forgotten about. There's plenty to go over here and there's a site called The Lost Worlds, which goes over a lot of what these pages don't have. Seriously, this is a fairly well-done site all things considered. Check it out.

Lady Sword - An English translation of a developer's diary found in the game's script has been posted online, but not the original text. This is particularly bad since the script has a custom encoding/compression.

Dreamcast games - I should note DC GDIs have their own format, making it hard to dig through without some tool like GD ROM Explorer.

TurboGrafx-CD games - Similar to DC games, the games have their own formats, making it difficult to do much that isn't just level selects or debug menus. It doesn't help a lot of these use a compression that isn't documented, though it seems to be based on LZSS.

Forgive me if this is the wrong place, but quite by accident I happened upon the pages for games that were developed by 4t2 Multimedia

I can't necessarily do it any time SOON, but I'd be interested in both trying to finish these (to the best of my ability) , and create a much more complete list of games.

I wouldn't normally offer to do something like this, except that besides have an interest in 4t2's games, anyways, I actually am in fairly frequent contact with one of the developers. (ofc, I obviously would be bound by NDA on certain things if I asked for them, personally)

My priority would be LEGO games. I may then move onto others.

So, any objects/questions/etc... ?

And again, terribly sorry if this is in the wrong thread...

Disney games - We have a pretty higher number of articles for these, but mostly for the older console generations. PC and newer console gen games are comparatively fewer, but these are slowly being worked on. The article for The Incredibles on Windows needs help, as do the newer console games.

Fire Pro Wrestling series - Oh yeah, we're finally starting to dig into these. Nothing special yet, besides some debugging stuff, but this series was long overdue for a look-in. I suspect devin got worn out from TOSE games.

Diablo III - For the most part, this article covers the debugging stuff and temp graphics. At least it has more than Starcraft 2... or Starcraft Ghosts, for that matter.

Sonic the Hedgehog series - GoldS and Porcino have been working like maniacs on the Genesis games, uploading loads of graphics and map rips to the main pages and prototype pages (especialy for Sonic 2).

SNES games - I've been adding things that either haven't been added in many years, like hidden texts and source code.

NES games - Same thing as above.

DOS games - Radiant recently added the first Eye of the Beholder and Barbarian, while I added Faery Tale Adventure.

FM Towns games - Bma is adding loads of these, though it's just some hidden documents and pics so far.

Dungeon Keeper 2 - No one's looked into here yet.

Ultimate Play the Game games - No one's looked into these yet either.

Also, in general, I recommend people check out games that use high ASCII. That is a form ASCII that mirrors the characters in 0x0-0x7F to 0x80-0xFF for some reason. Then again, it's true of every game that doesn't use standard ASCII.

This isn't the right place to ask. It's better to keep it in the original topic (or make a new topic if it's different enough from the first one).

Edit: I replied in the original topic, feel free to respond there.

Yeah, not really the right place to ask. This topic is more for article progress. Anyhow, Xkeeper just bumped up the limit for thumbnails by quite a lot, allowing thumbnails for bigger files both in file size and resolution.

Now is a very good time to get started on Adobe Flash games. Adobe is planning on discontinuing the plug-in altogether, so anyone that's interested in looking into Flash games better get started now. A few more have been added over the past few weeks, including the original Alien Hominid Flash game and Wuzzby's Amazing Adventure.

Been a long while since an update has been posted, so here we go.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Genesis) - The Nick Arcade and Simon Wai prototypes, as well as the main page, had their renovations completed. GoldS is now dealing with the betas made during the last week and it's surprising to see how many last minute changes there really were.

Nox - There's quite a bit more than this page lets on, but there aren't too many people focusing on this right now. Props to FenixZ2 for tipping us off.

Ultimate Fighter - Jonny2x4 has been updating this page quite a bit, largely to add a slew of regional differences.

Yuu Yuu Hakusho: Makyou Toitsusen - This got a lot of attention thanks to it containing sprites for Tails in Sonic Crackers that aren't in the prototype floating around. It's interesting evidence a later build of Sonic Crackers was made and work on the overworlds did progress. I wonder what's in the final game and we'd like to see if other games have random leftovers from Sonic Crackers.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga - Before I forget, BoringPerson deserves a shout-out for re-ripping a ton of sprites with the proper-ish animation speed.

The Fool's Errand and other Cliff Johnson games - No one has really dug into the games to find unused graphics as of yet, let alone unused puzzles. Still, Daxeria managed to find quite a few revisional differences for The Fool's Errand.

Nintendo Switch games - The Switch has already been cracked open with cart dumps about, so quite a few games have already been looked into.

Romancing SaGa games - I've added all three games to the wiki, but there's oddly not much attention here. Probably because most of the hackers for this series are from Japan and there's a big language barrier preventing much progress.

Sonic Spinball (Genesis) - Inspired by Sonic 2's article, Kak64 is now working on a big expansion here for the prototype. There's a bunch that's been found here and someone even managed to access the ending.

There was an article on 3D Movie Maker, but its classification as a game is somewhat controversial and has been removed as a result. The article's content has been archived on a not-quite-ready-yet wiki I'm working on.

But what's new on the wiki?

Wolf 3D, Doom, and Quake now have some of their prototypes uploaded to the wiki.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Genesis) - The articles are more or less finished. The game is also now featured on the wiki.

Hylics - I'm fairly sure every piece of unused content was added here, which isn't hard as the game was made in RPG Maker VX Ace. For the record, we do have games made in Game Maker too (Undertale, Hotline Miami 1 & 2), as well as Multimedia Fusion (2) titles (the whole Five Nights at Freddy series). Sliced Vent made this one.

Sonic Mania - Despite having a custom engine, a lot of its file formats are internally common files (i.e. GIFs for the sprites, OGGs and WAVs for the audio), so loads of people got into contributing for this one article.

Sonic 3D Blast (Saturn) and Sonic Jam prototypes - These two recently got added thanks to a tip-off from Motobadnik. There isn't much interesting to be found, but it's nice to get these out of the way.

Shrek SuperSlam - One of the more unusual dummy files in video gaming history. There are still plenty more to dig through.

Wipeout XL - An article has been made, but is there more to find? The original Wipeout has a bunch of debugging icons I'll later add. For that matter, we don't have much on the Wipeout series.

Panzer Front series - The PS1 titles have been hacked into thanks to Athena. Now to see what the PS2 title has.

Nice Code games - AttackedByGlitch has been adding a bunch of games with hidden credits screens, but is there anything else to these?
