Why was he called Nack the Weasel in the west if he is a Jerboa anyway. Oh well, mysteries.

Minor nitpick: The sound test still refers to his boss theme as "VS Fang the Sniper."


Otherwise, this is going straight into my always-on folder since I prefer the name Nack.

One of these funky animals, they're hopping rodents with long tails that they used to help them balance while jumping, which explains a lot of Fang's design. The character designer for Fang confirmed he was designed as a Jerboa but the sales department insisted he would be a jerboa/wolf, and Sega of America just decided he'd be called a weasel.

That's your secret Sonic lore for the day.

I like thinking of the "weasel" part of his American name referring to his sleazy personality and nature sort of like how "sniper" doesn't refer to his species name either. I also liked how the comics tried to reconcile both names similar to Robotnik/Eggman in the games.


On topic, something like having an input button code to unlock the names Nack and Miles (like in Sonic 2) would be a pretty neat easter egg in vanilla.

And K.T.E could be "Knux", as i'm pretty sure in one of the classic games, that's what showed up. That and Sonic isn't S.T.H, and I just don't really like K.T.E. Initials don't work for names.
*Also, unrelated but apparently Mania and CD just has the life icon and the number of lives, no names show up on the life icon.*

NACK IS BACK BAYBEEE AHHH YEAH

...jokes aside, a pretty cool albeit simple mod, if I do say. I always liked that Sonic 2 let you choose to have him called his real name of Miles or his nickname (and more famous name) of Tails, and it's cool to see that idea extended to Fang and Amy here.

Alright, i'll see about doing that in a future update.

Is there any chance we could get an alternate optional zip file with individual wads for each character? Would be convenient for if you only wanted one or a few of the name changes but not all.

Alright, I've updated the mod to version 3, splitting up the wads so you can pick what character names change.

In the words of Dead Line, "this is what you need". I wish this was a command, though. I like "Miles", but I want to be able to switch to Tails from time to time without rebooting the game.

How do you hide the player name in-game and change the small life numbers to the big ones (like the ones that display how much time you have/rings collected, etc.) like in Sonic CD?
