360 SOTN info

Here’s all the info that should be relevant. Let me know if you need me to check something in particular out, I haven’t had much time to play SOTN this week (I’m about 3/4 of the way through the first castle…) but I should beat it this weekend.

[li]All FMVs are removed (presumably to save space). Any place an FMV appeared in the PSX version is simply skipped as if it was never there (in other words there are no placeholders)[/li][li]When you start the game, you get a new menu with options for “Single Player”, “Leaderboards”, “Achievements”, “Help & Options”, and “Return to Arcade”. Starting the game from this displays the original title screen, and you must press start again to get to the load screen.[/li][li]Minor control changes (more on that in a moment)[/li][li]Leaderboards via XBox live (more follows)[/li][li]Enhanced graphics mode for HD sets. This mode blurs the pixel boundaries on individual sprites so it looks more like the original on an HDTV (with the graphics in original mode it appears very pixellated)[/li][li]Pause Menu added, it appears when you press Start, with options for “Resume Game”, “Help & Options”, “Leaderboards”, “Achievements”, and “Exit Game”. Selecting Exit Game takes you back to the first menu you see when you start the game. You must exit again to actually go back to the dashboard.[/li][li]Additional (minor) unconfirmed changes at http://forums.xbox.com/11117296/ShowPost.aspx[/li][/ul]

It’s for the SOTN shrine.

There’s probably a shrine post forum somewhere that would serve you better.

That’d be a good addition to the shrine. Unfortunately, I’m not really able to do anything right now, since I do not have Internet access except at work. I don’t know if Sinistral would be able to HTMLize all that and add it either. If all else fails, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if you added that section to the shrine yourself, Rast (You’ve got my blessing to do so, for sure). Although if you could confirm the uncomfirmed changes that you linked to, that’d be even better.

Rast you used to own all of this anyway

In my opinion it’s all yours

Change what you will

Well I don’t want to change anything without talking to the official shrine admins first (plus I’m lazy 'cause I’m still playing SOTN :P), so I’ll wait another couple days, there’s not a big hurry.

Uh… The reason I responded is because I AM one of the co-maintainers of the SotN shrine…

That’s why you don’t get a say.
